Quarterbacks still need work

The good news for the Browns is the season opener is more than five weeks away. The bad news is it might take all 40 days to settle on a starting quarterback.

Derek Anderson and Brady Quinn were erratic again Tuesday on the fourth day of training camp. It was the sixth practice since camp started on Saturday.

On Tuesday the Browns worked on third and fourth down situations. Unofficially, both were 4 of 9 with one interception. They weren't much better in the two-minute drill. Anderson, working with the first team against the first defense moved from the Offense's 30 to the Defense's 44. Quinn moved the ball three yards in four plays.

In defense of the quarterbacks, they still do not have Braylon Edwards as a target. Edwards is out with a mysterious leg injury. The best receiver over the last two days was Paul Hubbard. Brian Robiskie, Mohamed Massaquoi and Syndric Steptoe have been inconsistent. A lot of passes go the the tight end and running back in dumpoff situations. It isn't all on the young receivers, though. Quinn had Massaquoi and Steptoe open deep on two separate plays and overthrew both because his passes were too flat.
