If Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace are embroiled in a quarterback controversy this year in Cleveland, this could be the lamest QB competition since, well, ever. Or in Buffalo this season.
But coach Eric Mangini told the Canton Repository that Wallace will play this season. Though he did not say that Wallace would be the starter.
“Regardless of how it works,” Mangini said, “Seneca’s going to have plays in there where he’ll be involved, and maybe he’ll be involved with Josh (Cribbs), and we can have some fun with that.”
Mangini also defended Delhomme, comparing him to — wait for it — Brett Favre. (From one interception king to another, I suppose.)
“When you bring someone in, you look at their body of work,” Mangini said. “He has an outstanding body of work. Brett Favre didn’t play very well for us at the end in New York. Brett came back and played pretty well the next season.”

- Cowboys QB Tony Romo will make an appearance on NBC’s The Biggest Loser. Thankfully for Romo, he agreed to this after the Cowboys finally won a playoff game. Otherwise the Cowboys fans (and haters) would have had a field day with this. Of course, that doesn’t mean there won’t be Jessica Simpson jokes.
- The Newark Star-Ledger is reporting that the Giants nearly had a deal to trade defensive tackle Barry Cofield to the Saints for a “second-day” pick. But the paper reports that the deal stalled because the Saints could not agree to a contract extension for Cofield.
- WR Davone Bess told the Palm Beach Post that he is unsure of his role in the Dolphins’ offense this season. The one thing he did know was that he would do what the coaches asked him to do. How about handing over No. 15 to Brandon Marshall?
