Hell the Patriots did it back in the day. Bledsoe got hurt, Brady came in and did a great job, they dumped Bledsoe (who is still the all time leader passer in Patriots History)
Mangini has said that it isn't likely the loser will be traded because a team needs depth at QB.

There is depth, then there is a split locker room. When you have a QB controversy like this, the loser needs to be traded to keep the locker room from splitting between the two (and to keep the head coach from pulling one for the other with one bad series or game).

Actually, there are conflicting reports on this if Mangini said he wants to keep all three...the ABJ reported that the loser of the battle WOULD most likely be traded and Ratliffe (sp?) would move up to the #2 spot.

Hmmm, well that would be best...so I expect the Browns to do the opposite.

They reported in the Cleveland Plain Dealer earlier this week or late last week that the loser would become the #2 QB.

Honestly, I don't think Mangini knows what he wants to do. He would love to keep the loser at the #2 but knows it might not be a good idea.

Either way, I don't think you get better than a late 2nd rounder for either Quinn or Anderson.

Anderson had that good season where he threw 29 TD's, but he threw 19 picks and choked at the end of the season. Then he was horrible last season (though some costly drops by Edwards didn't help any).

Quinn played, then quickly got hurt. While Quinn didn't play like garbage, he wasn't astonishing either.

Another Browns blunder?

Sanchez looked great for the Jets, right outta the gate.

Should never have traded away that pick.

Correction, they should have never traded that pick away for no value whatsoever. They could have gotten the Jets first rounder in 09 and 2010...instead they took just the 2009 and a bunch of scrubs.

While it IS only preseason, I thought it was almost a no-brainer that Sanchez would be the best of this bunch. Freeman could pan out after a few years of tutelage, and Stafford might have what it takes but he'll suffer by being thrust under center by the worst run team in the league.

uh -oh

Browns fans are getting restless

Topic: So.....which QB will we pick in 2010

it's obvious we don't have a franchise QB. So I'd like to know who you think we should pick in the top 5 next season?

The QB battle rages on...

Getting testy: Displeased Eric Mangini calls out the Cleveland Browns after ragged practice

Coach Eric Mangini railed against his team's continual mistakes after Tuesday's morning practice.

Here's what happened:

Near the end of the practice, Mangini set up a situation drill with 50 seconds and two timeouts left in a tie game. The object was to move the offense into position to kick a field goal or score a touchdown.

Brady Quinn led the first team and promptly tossed a weak pass over the middle for Edwards, who wasn't looking, and Brandon McDonald made an easy interception.

In came Derek Anderson and the second unit. There was an 8-yard completion to Brian Robiskie, followed by a false start, a delay of game penalty, a wasted timeout, a throwaway, a handoff to Noah Herron and a punt.

It sure is nice starting out every year with two automatic wins, ain't it?
