If Browns HC Eric Mangini had to do his most recent news conference over again, he would be clearer about the fact that -- no surprise -- Jake Delhomme is the No. 1 quarterback. During the minicamps, he worked with the starters and the Browns were very pleased with the 35 year old. They like how he quickly adapted to the offense and how he didn't make many poor throws. He has looked like what they hoped for when signing him to a $7 million deal: A solid veteran with strong leadership skills.
We knew Jake was the #1 QB, but what is interesting is the note that Delhomme hasn't been making many poor throws. The poor throw, or more specifically throws to defenders, has been his achilles heel since imploding in the Panthers 2008 playoff run. If Delhomme can limit the poor throw in regular season games, the Browns could surprise people this season. But even a best case scenario wont make Delhomme a fantasy option.
