Mangini has no plans to bench Anderson

From the Associated Press:

BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini has no plans to bench Derek Anderson, the NFL's lowest-rated quarterback.

Anderson has completed just 23 of 70 passes in the past three games and came out of Sunday's 31-3 loss to Green Bay with an overall 40.6 rating -- nearly seven points behind the second lowest QB, Oakland's JaMarcus Russell.

Despite the atrocious stats, Mangini feels Anderson gives his team the best chance to win and will not switch back to Brady Quinn.

Quinn began the season as Cleveland's starter but was replaced by Anderson after 10 quarters. Mangini said his decision to stick with Anderson has nothing to do with Quinn earning $11 million this season if he plays in 70 percent of the team's offensive snaps.
