Mangini said he'll most likely name his starter for the Monday night game against the Ravens Nov. 16 by early next week.
The team's struggles on offense wouldn't prevent Brady Quinn from welcoming a chance to start again.
"I love playing the game and any time I can get back in there it will be exciting," he said.
Mangini said he won't head into the Baltimore game thinking he can make a switch at halftime again if the starter struggles.
"That's not my goal at any point," said Mangini. "You're always looking to move things forward."
