The name Seneca Wallace has never invoked fear in the heart of an opposing team's defense, but then again, that's not why Browns' President Mike Holmgren brought him to Cleveland. Wallace was meant to merely be a competent backup to the starting quarterback of the franchise, currently Jake Delhomme, and optimistically Colt McCoy in the future.
That all may have changed however in one unfortunate moment in Week 1 against Tampa Bay when Jake Delhomme suffered a sprained ankle. Taking his place, Wallace has excelled against two divisional rivals, the Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals.
He has notched the first victory of the Browns' young season against the Bengals, ending many fans' fear that Cleveland was in for a long win-less slide, and in the meantime has seemingly won over the city and locker-room.
This week it's been reported that starting quarterback Delhomme has been practicing and appears about ready to take the reigns again against Atlanta or Pittsburgh.
The big question is: for a quarterback that was run out of his previous team's town for doing his best impression of a Jeckyll & Hyde character, has he done enough to earn the starting role over the man who's been right in the middle of the fray for the last three games?
