Wheels come off again

The Browns are getting progressively worse. They are 0-3 after being embarrassed 34-3 by the Ravens today.

Coach Eric Mangini says he and the coaches have to identify what the offense does well and improve those things. That could be a long search, because right now they aren't doing anything well.

Mangini benched Brady Quinn and asked Derek Anderson to lead a comeback when the Browns were down 20-0 at halftime to the Ravens. Anderson deserves a chance to start next week against the Bengals.

The run defense is terrible and the pass defense isn't any better. Even Josh Cribbs looks like a mortal on kick returns. The players keep talking about watching film and correcting mistakes. They are going to be bleary-eyed this afternoon.

Just what, exactly, has Derek Anderson done to "deserve a chance to start next week against the Bengals"? Please, explain yourself. I challenge you to back up that preposterous statement.

Seriously, explain. Quinn was 6-of-8 for 34 yards and an interception. Anderson was 11-of-19 for 92 yards and 3 interceptions. Sure, Anderson threw the ball downfield more, and look at the result: THREE INTERCEPTIONS. Obviously, there's a reason Quinn doesn't throw the ball downfield willy-nilly. THERE'S NO ONE TO CATCH IT EXCEPT FOR THE DEFENSE.

So, I ask again, why exactly does DA "deserve" a chance to start next week? I'm waiting ...
