After the Brown vs White team scrimmage last Sunday, the Cleveland Browns QB situation seems as foggy as ever. Neither QB seems to be consistent enough to put some distance between the two. Average is the best description I can give of both Quinn and Anderson so far.

If this continues the team will ultimately be the loser. The longer this drags on, the harder it will be to get the offense ready for the regular season. One QB needs the majority of reps to sharpen not only his play but the first team offense as well. It makes me wonder if at some point Brett Ratliff should get a look. Ratliff also threw for over 100 yards and a TD against the first team defense.

Getting back to the scrimmage Anderson went 12 - 21 with an INT and he scored a TD. Quinn  was 11 - 19 with a 51 yard TD and an INT. Both QBs threw for a little over 100 yds. Mangini stated after the scrimmage each QB did some good things and they still have some work to do. As for who's starting against Green Bay on Saturday Mangini will make that decision later this week after he views the film and evaluates both in practice.
