Mangini not ready to make future commitment to Quinn
From The Plain Dealer:
BEREA, Ohio -- Despite some encouraging efforts, Eric Mangini isn't ready to commit to Brady Quinn yet as the Browns quarterback of the future.
"We're going to look at the whole body of work and all of the different things -- and not just for Brady but for the group -- and see where we are and assess it at that point as opposed to doing it right now," said Mangini during his Monday press conference.
That gives Quinn three more games to prove that the Browns don't need to spend next spring's first-round pick on a quarterback or find one in free agency. As of right now, the Browns would be picking No. 3, meaning they'd have shot at one of the top quarterbacks such as Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen or Oklahoma's Sam Bradford.
"I think these last three games are important for everybody. I really do," said Mangini. "I really like the way that Brady's protecting the football. I like the way that he's run the offense and that's not easy to do. It's not easy to run a no-huddle offense with shifting and motion and multiple personnel groups against a lot of defensive schemes, which we've seen out of San Diego and Pittsburgh. They've got a lot of different looks and you have to have real control of the offense to do that. He's done a good job with that."
