Coach Eric Mangini had he will not make a quarterback change this week and is sticking with Derek Anderson for Sunday's game at Chicago.
He said not playing Brady Quinn has ''nothing, zero'' to do with the $11 million in escalators Quinn would earn if he takes 70 percent of the snaps this season.
''He gives us the best chance right now to move the ball,'' Mangini said of Anderson. ''I know his numbers have not been impressive, but he isn’t alone in producing those numbers. There’s been a significant amount of drops, there’s been times where had chances and there’s been some breakdowns in protection. I’ve also seen him complete some balls that they were well thrown and well caught. The throw to (tight end Michael) Gaines yesterday, good throw, good catch, put it in a place where only he could get it. There’s been a lot of those.
The shot there on deep ball to Mohamed (Massaquoi) just out of his reach over on their sideline. I’ve seen him complete those plays not just in games, but also in practice.''
