Jake Delhomme should get another chance this Sunday to show the Browns didn’t throw $7 million away when Mike Holmgren signed him last offseason.
Coach Eric Mangini won’t announce a starter against the Dolphins, but indicated that Delhomme will get the majority of first team snaps over Senenca Wallace. Rookie Colt McCoy appears to be at least a week away from returning from his high ankle sprain.
Delhomme apologized after the game to Mangini for almost costing his team a win with a pair of interceptions. Then again, he’s not going to completely change his approach. That should make Miami defenders smile.
“It’s a critical mistake,” Delhomme said Wednesday via the Cleveland Plain-Dealer. “But on the flip side of it, to me, if you’re Charlie Checkdown, yeah, your stats are going to look great at the end of the game. But those 13 points, I don’t know how many wins you’re going to get with that.”
