Mangini or Mangina?
Tool or Fool? Pardon the atrocious title, but it seems so befitting of the situation he inherited in Cleveland. Is there anything worse than drafting a really good prospect, to have a new regime crush the hopes of your prospect by default? I have some advice for the annoying coach in Cleveland, grow a set and pick your positions starters! If these charades continue, Browns fans are going to throw the head-coach a few signals he can't call during their teams games. Is he scared? Is he paying attention? I don't know, but I would like to find out!
What was Cleveland thinking?
My advice to Mangini is this, pick'em and start'em! If Brady Quinn has a poor outing in the pre-season finale, it could possibly crush his confidence and hurt his status for the upcoming season, even though he has clearly surpassed Anderson in terms of smarts and accuracy. This kid is a really talented prospect, his coach on the other hand, is bumbling his QB's confidence and creating animosity between the organization and fans. If Anderson is named the starter, Mangini should be forever remembered as the coach who couldn't make a smart (or the right) decision.
I and an army of fans believe the best QB is clearly Quinn! Sometimes numbers don't tell the whole story, but if you have watched Anderson in the pre-season (and last year), that is simply not the case with this situation, Quinn seems far more poised at QB. With Mangini quoted as saying, "I will go through the whole process before choosing my QB", will the fans ever really know what more there is to this "process" he is speaking of? Good luck Cleveland, I feel sorry for your chances at a good season in '09 under this coaches guidance. Hopefully he wakes up and picks Quinn to lead this squad, then fans should at least have hope for the future of the Browns organization going forward.
