No quarterback decision yet

Nothing divides a fan base like a good quarterback controversy, and the one going on on the Browns' practice fields in Berea is a doozy.

Coach Eric Mangini on Monday before practice said the competition between Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson "is very close." It wasn't that close Monday. The edge clearly went to Anderson. During the two-minute offense Quinn turned the ball over on downs. Anderson put the offense into position to kick a winning field goal. Phil Dawson's kick sailed wide right of the narrow goal posts designed to sharpen Dawson's kicking.

Mangini said he hopes Quinn and Anderson separate themselves over the next two weeks to make the decision a clear one. If not, he said he'll make a decision and stick with it.

Let's hope so. In two weeks the Browns will be getting ready for the season opener against the Vikings. The Vikings have known their starting quarterback since the minute Brett Favre came out of retirement last week.
