Why Delhomme might not throw a pick Sunday

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports that Jake Delhomme will not practice Friday. This marks three straight missed practices for the Browns quarterback. Delhomme is nursing a right ankle injury suffered in the loss at Tampa Bay.

Eric Mangini, at this point, is still not ruling Delhomme out for the home opener against Kanas City. "I'd like to go through today and see how it is tomorrow,'' Mangini said. "Jake's made progress. He knows the gameplan. I'd have total confidence in him (to play).''

If Delhomme is unable to go, Seneca Wallace will become the man in charge of throwing interceptions for the Browns. Mangini professes total faith in Wallace, saying “I had the misfortune of playing against him once when he started in Seattle. He's really efficient with the football. He knows the system. He's another leader that has a presence with everybody.''

Obviously, there is a stark difference in style between Delhomme and Wallace. The former is a pocket passer, the latter a scrambler. But, unlike so many mobile quarterbacks in the NFL, Wallace has always shown the ability to consistently manage the game from the pocket. True, he lacks accuracy and big-time arm strength, and he’s good for about two reads, tops. But the point is, if Wallace plays Sunday, he can mimic Delhomme’s style. Thus, the Browns wouldn’t have to completely alter their game plan the way, say, the Eagles will for Michael Vick. (If the Eagles are smart, that is.)
