Don't crown Quinn yet

Eric Mangini says he wants to see more of his two quarterbacks before he declares a winner. Brady Quinn had better stats than Derek Anderson in the preseason game against the Packers on Saturday. Quinn was 7 of 11 for 68 yards. Anderson threw two passes. One was incomplete and one was intercepted.

Media and fans believe Quinn now has the lead over Anderson. Not so fast, says Mangini.

"I think at this point it's too early to make an assessment on both guys," Mangini said Monday. "I liked some of the things Brady did. D.A. didn't get as many reps. We'll try to balance that off (against the Lions Saturday)."

Both quarterbacks had two series against the Packers, but as it turned out Anderson had only five plays because one possession ended without a first down and Anderson threw an interception on the other. He was hit as he threw the ball on the interception.

Mangini said he hasn't decided Anderson will start against the Lions. Quinn started against the Packers. It is no surprise Mangini won't say Quinn is in the lead, but let's put it this way; Anderson will have to light up the Lions to stay in the race.
