Mangini: QB Job Delhomme’s “To Lose”

During his interview with Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, who is guest-hosting The Dan Patrick Show this week, head coach Eric Mangini says the team’s starting quarterback job is Jake Delhomme’s to lose. “It’s really Jake’s job to lose, and he did a great job during OTAs,” Mangini told Florio, as transcribed by Michael David Smith of PFT.com.

“I couldn’t have been happier with him, not just in terms of the way he learned the information but the way he ran the offense.” With 92 career starts and nearly 20,000 passing yards, the 35-year old Delhomme has more experience than Seneca Wallace, Brett Ratliff, and 2010 third-round pick Colt McCoy, so it’s no surprise that he’ll enter camp as the starter. Wallace will be Delhomme’s primary competition for the starting job, but is a career back-up who was acquired because of his familiarity with Mike Holmgren, and his athleticism that will allow the Browns to use him in true “Wildcat” packages.

    No shocker here. You’re paying the man $7 million guaranteed. He better be the designated QB.
