Delhomme likely to start against the Falcons….


He should practice on Wednesday, coach Eric Mangini said Monday. “I thought we had a really good chance [against the Bengals]. I want to see with a bigger load how he responds. That’s where we are on Monday. Hopefully we’ll be saying the same thing on Thursday.”

Mangini said Delhomme’s return shouldn’t diminish what Seneca Wallace did over the last three weeks. Wallace went 1-2, but in addition to beating the Bengals, engineered two touchdown drives against the stingy Ravens defense and earned a 103 rating.

Against the Bengals, he launched a 24-strike to tight end Evan Moore and used his legs to avoid the rush and keep drives alive.

“He’s gotten more and more comfortable running the offense,” said Mangini. “And I don’t want anybody to think that by putting Jake in this is some knock on Seneca. I think Seneca has done a great job. And he’s played well and he’s played well against really tough defenses and I have no problem with him starting [and] playing.”

Overall, Wallace completed 52 of 85 attempts for 554 yards with three touchdowns and two interceptions for a 82.2 rating.

“With the way he’s played, we’ve decreased the amount of turnovers the last couple of games,” said Mangini. “He’s done a really outstanding job in a pretty tough situation coming in after Game One and having a three-game run.”

Wallace said he’s not concerned about relinquishing his starting role.

“That’s not my job,” he said after the Bengals game. “I just continue to lead these guys the best way I can. The coaching staff and everybody else will take care of that.”
