Let the Quarterbacks Duel Begin!

Head Coach Eric Mangini has fired the starting pistol. This morning, at the meeting of NFL owners in sunny California, the new Sheriff proclaimed that the official competition between Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn for the starting QB position this season has begun. This is exciting. The 2007 Pro Bowl QB who had a disastrous season in 2008 versus the fan-favourite and home-boy.

Mangini was silent on how he intends to divide up the practise, mini-camp and training camp opportunities for each of the competitors, other than to say that he intends to mix things up. Eric plays a great game of poker when it comes to these two young men; he refused to give an inch when pressed for details about what he likes in each of them. Mangini also stifled attempts to pin him down on a timetable - instead he indicated there is no timetable on making his decision as to who will start. Eric also played coy about trade possibilities; he merely stated that he would not rule out trading one of them at anytime if that trade improved the Team.

We have to confess - we love this stuff. Mangini is playing this exactly as we would like to see him handle the situation. It might be frustrating for the media to have such a darling to deal with, however, his job is to keep Anderson and Quinn on their toes so that each will pour everything he has into becoming a better QB to win the starting position and/or manoeuvre himself into a more favourable trade position. Perfect - we will be better off in the end.

We do not endorse everything that the new regime has done thus far, and we at times have been critical of certain free agent signings and other decisions, however, on the QB competition we say: kudos Eric!

Go Browns!
