No coin flip in '09?

New Browns coach Eric Mangini will hold a quarterback competition between Brady Quinn and Derek Anderson. But receiver Braylon Edwards doesn't believe Mangini will drag it out so long that the starters won't be able to develop chemistry before the Sept. 13 opener against Minnesota.

''I think competition is good at any position,'' Edwards said. ''Coach Mangini has to assess for himself who he wants to be the guy. When he does pick the guy, which is all his decision, he'll pick it in enough time where we have time to really get with this guy and really develop an offense or a first-string, develop where we want to go for the start of the season.

''All trust is in coach Mangini and when the time is right, he'll determine who he wants to be that guy.''

Edwards' take on the situation was news to Quinn.

''I just take my directions from Coach Mangini,'' Quinn said. ''Whatever he says, goes.''
