Delhomme misses practice again; Mangini keeps mum on the starter

It appears that quarterback Jake Delhomme will be on the sidelines Sunday for the Browns when they take on the Chiefs in their home opener.

The QB is not on the field for the third straight day, and it looks like Seneca Wallace will get the start for the club as they look to get to .500 vs a Chiefs team that beat the Chargers Monday night.

Delhomme hurt his right ankle last week in a 17-14 loss at Tampa Bay and has been receiving treatment all week. Coach Eric Mangini has said all week that Delhomme is getting better and is not ruling him out from playing against the Chiefs.

Mangini said he wanted to get through Friday’s practice before making a decision on his starter. Wallace has 14 career starts with the Seahawks, the team he was on before coming to the Browns this past offseason.

    I don’t know, Fly. At least we didn’t try to ban anybody’s goat from the stadium. 🙂

    Seriously though, anybody else think this constitutes trying to be too smart by half?It’s already presumed that Wallace will be starting. If he does, all this energy is wasted. And if Delhomme does, he may not be physically able of playing up to this “mystery”. Gamesmanship is all well and good but it’s best saved for when it can be a win-win for us. This just smacks of Mangini trying too hard.
