Have to chalk this up to Manginis typical refusal to name a solid starting QB, no?
Certainly I'd have to think the minimum wage earned was a another start this week vs the Jets.
IMO, despite the "official word" from mangini, Colt has made this discussion EASIER, not harder.
CLEVELAND -- Browns coach Eric Mangini stopped short of naming Colt McCoy his starter for the time being, but acknowledged that he's "making the discussion harder.''
Mangini said he'll see where Seneca Wallace is this week with his high ankle sprain and then go from there regarding the Jets games on Sunday.
But why even have a discussion when McCoy is coming off back-to-back victories over the defending Super Bowl champion Saints and the Patriots, who came in at 6-1?
"I like discussions,'' said Mangini with a smile. He said he likes to solicit input from everyone before making a decision. "We'll talk about it and see where we are.''
Mangini said Wallace will probably return to practice on Wednesday and that Jake Delhomme might see action on Thursday or Friday if his high ankle sprain will allow it.
But Mangini acknowledged that he was really happy with McCoy's performance during Sunday's 34-14 victory over the Patriots, including his ability to throw on the run, stay away from interceptions and make good decisions. He also scored on a 16-yard run.
Mangini said McCoy's arm strength has been good, the players believe in him and that his football I.Q. is "right up there.''
