No Adverse Affect From Cleveland QB Indecision

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 7, 2009 – 4:26 pm

In an earlier blog entry today, we mentioned that the Cleveland Browns have yet to declare a starting QB in the competition between Derek Anderson and former 1st round draft pick Brady Quinn.

But according to Vikings Head Coach Brad Childress, the Browns indecision is not adversely affecting the Purple.

“It doesn’t,” Childress responded when asked how the unsettled QB battle affects his team’s preparation. “You’re just, schematically, you’re going to look at what you’ve seen, you’re going to go back and look at Jets (Mangini’s former team) tape and see what you’ve seen.

“I know, as do our guys, there will be unscouted looks. They certainly haven’t shown their whole hand offensively or defensively (in the preseason). But you’re just going back and looking formation-wise where they’re putting people and what kind of players they are.”

Ultimately, Childress said, Sunday’s game with Cleveland will be more about the Vikings execution than the Browns attack.

“It’ll be more about us deploying than what they do,” Childress explained.

    Writing from Cleveland: Ironic that Favre begins a new season with a new team in Cleveland when the Vikings come to town Sunday.

    Last year the media showed up in Cleveland as Favre came back as a Jet under our very own coach Eric Man-meanie.

    I like the discipline Mangini has brought to the Browns. However, what scares me is that he actually believes any decision he makes regarding the Browns is infallible and cannot be questioned. The penalty for any infraction — especially talking out of school — is death. A man who thinks he is infallible fails to see the truth. Old Chinese saying. Not really. I just made it up.

    As for the QB controversy. I don’t really care who he picks. But then he has got to stick with him — not murmer a few Belichickisms of nonsense each week.

    It is frightening to think the Browns’ fate lies in the hands of Mussolin — I mean, Mangini. And why was the guy really fired from the Jets? His record — or something else?

    It makes perfect sense not naming a starter until gameday. Mangini wants His QB’s to sleep well, not have nightmares about getting Sacked 9 Times.

    Go Vikes!!
