With each passing week, it seems less and less likely that Jake Delhomme or Seneca Wallace will get back under center for the Browns this season. Both missed practice Wednesday still nursing their high ankle sprains.

Thus, as CBS's Clark Judge suggested earlier this week, rookie Colt McCoy is a virtual lock to get the nod against New England.

''I'm here for whatever they ask me to do. Again, that's a coaches' decision,'' McCoy said Wednesday of a possible third consecutive start, according to the Beacon Journal. ''I know Jake and Seneca aren't practicing today, and I treat it the same way I have the last several weeks — to prepare like I'm the starter every time. Whether it ends that way or not, I'm going to be prepared to play.''

Considering that McCoy may have an upside (emphasis still on “may” at this point) and that the Browns are, as usual, playing for next season, what would be the point of turning back to a 35-year-old Delhomme or a perennial backup like Wallace?

Yes, the best way to develop a young team is for that young team to learn how to win. But that doesn’t always mean relying on the veteran quarterback. After all, in McCoy’s two starts, the Browns were decent against the Steelers and just good enough offensively to pull out a defensive win against the Saints.

I understand the skepticism, but I think we can eliminate the "may"; especially in regards to his competition.  Those two have no upside whatsoever.
