Browns QB competition "is very close."

Cleveland Plain Dealer - [Full Article]

It will be another week without knowing the Browns' starting QB for the next preseason game on Saturday.

Pressed to assess the QB competition, coach Eric Mangini maintained that the process is playing out and he will not make a decision until he is able to make the right decision.

Much of the discussion today concerned Derek Anderson's performance in the 27-10 win over Detroit. Mangini praised Anderson for making good throws and other positives not readily observed in the game, such as recognitions and using his cadence to draw the Lions offsides twice.

Mangini would not say who will start at QB against Tennessee in the game typically considered the dress rehearsal for the season opener. It would be Brady Quinn's turn to start based on Mangini's rotation.

The coach insists he is confident a winner will present itself before the opener on Sept. 13, even though he said the competition "is very close."
