When Mike Holmgren kept Eric Mangini as coach, one could rightfully wonder if he was going to step lightly in his first year on the job. If you assumed that, then you were mistaken.
Since the surprise (to many, including me) decision to stick with the beleaguered coach, Holmgren has made a number of personnel moves. The biggest decision was to ax both quarterbacks. There will be no Anderson v. Quinn this year. Apparently Holmgren decided neither would be the answer to the question we have all been asking, just who is the Browns quarterback of the future.
When Seneca Wallace was signed and Anderson was unceremoniously dumped, it looked like Quinn. Then Holmgren went out and signed Jake Delhomme and Quinn was traded. Smart moves? Only time will tell, but what was accomplished was getting rid of the two guys who struggled for the past two seasons.
I don't think Wallace or Delhomme is the long term answer to our question. Then again, I don't think Holmgren does either. These guys give us a fresh look and a QB may be in our draft plans. I have heard that Tony Pike among others is being looked at. I like the looks of the 6'6" Bearcat quarterback. Perhaps he will be the answer.
For now the view from my seat suggests that Holmgren has made the necessary decisions. Now we get to see how they pan out.
