It sounds like Seneca Wallace’s reign as the Browns QB could end this week. That’s the feeling of Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer after the media spoke to Cleveland coach Eric Mangini today.
"He should practice on Wednesday,” Mangini said. "I thought we had a really good chance [against the Bengals]. I want to see with a bigger load how he responds. That's where we are on Monday. Hopefully we'll be saying the same thing on Thursday."
Still, Wallace played well in Delhomme’s absence. He nearly led the Browns to an upset against Baltimore two weeks ago, and of course, he helped beat the Bengals on Sunday.
"He's gotten more and more comfortable running the offense," said Mangini. "And I don't want anybody to think that by putting Jake in this is some knock on Seneca. I think Seneca has done a great job. And he's played well and he's played well against really tough defenses and I have no problem with him starting [and] playing."
Just for comparison’s sake, here’s how Delhomme (one game) and Wallace (three games) compare this year.
Delhomme has completed 54.1 percent of his passes for 227 yards, one TD and two INTs. Wallace has completed 61.2 percent of his passes for 554 yards (185 yards per game), three TDs and two INTs.
