QB Position Among Many Up for Grabs for the Browns

Browns Camp Football
The Browns are getting set for their final vacations of the summer, as OTA’s wrap up for the club. The next time we see them, it’ll be for real, as it will be training camp on August 1st. For now, the story is what players are going to start, and what players are going to sit.

“This isn’t a time when any questions get answered,” Eric Mangini said. “This is more of a time for gathering information. Until we get to a point where we cut down, it’s going to be a constant evaluation. This is just another step in the process.”

The biggest position of course that needs to be answered is the QB spot. The battle remains between Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn, and while you can have all the opinions you want on who is going to win it, for now Mangini is not tipping his hand on who has the upper hand.

He said Saturday that both will enter training camp with a chance to be the starter. For now Anderson does not seem to take issue with that. “Done that before,” Anderson said. “Not really anything new to me. Come back in July and get to work and see where it takes us.”

There are plenty of other positions up for grabs, on both sides of the ball for a team looking to build quickly to be more like the 10-win team of two seasons ago more than the four-win team last year. Making that QB decision quickly will go a long way in trying to get back to winning ways.

    Dude…….Mangini is going to pick Quinn, he has to make it appear to be fair…

    Mangini has been fairly solid in keeping his cards close to his chest on the QB issue, however, the biggest hint came earlier this month when he said that a key factor was being able to pick up blitzes. Brady may be unproven, but you’d have to be almost dead to rank behind Anderson in that skill.

    No way this organisation wants to go backward in picking DA. I mean, they turned the page on the coaching staff, got rid of Winslow, and turned the page on quite a few supporting cast members. Why would they then turn back, and go back to an unpolished and flawed signal-caller in Anderson? I agree, this QB battle is definitely a ruse, or at least I hope it is.

    I still feel anything can happen, but my opinion is that it should be Quinn. His arm is plenty strong from what the nay sayers talk about; from what i watched he has a command in the huddle; he looks the field over and sees his options; he does not stare one receiver down; and he improves from week to week on what he does or does not do in games. I think i see a qb that when he feels llike he has taken control he will be very confident and the offense will spark.

    Mangini will try to give them a fair shot to see what they have. That is his MO. He didn’t pick a starter with the Jets until after preseason games. His policy was to switch the QBs evenly with the first unit.

    BTW many Jet’s fans liked Ratliff quite a bit. But then their options weren’t…stellar.
