Jake Delhomme has already been named the starter. Most fans believed that Seneca Wallace will be the back-up and Colt McCoy will watch from the bench as the third QB on the depth chart.
Eric Mangini doesn’t see the situation so cut and dry. Today Mangini was asked if the Browns will keep Ratliff as well, and the answer was surprising:
“That’s something that we will talk about as the cuts get closer, I’ve kept four as a head coach and have been on teams that have kept four as an assistant coach. I have also been on [teams that only kept] two.”
Does that mean that Ratliff and Colt McCoy are possibly in trouble as cuts draw near? The more likely outcome is that the coaching staff and front office want to see better production out of McCoy and this could be a way of letting him know that.
