Quinn tabbed to start against Ravens Monday night

By Stephanie Storm Published: November 11, 2009

It's back to Brady Quinn for the Browns.

As expected at his Wednesday morning media briefing, head coach Eric Mangini named Quinn the starting quarterback for the Browns Monday Night matchup with visiting Baltimore.

"I  think that he's had some good weeks of practice and I like what he did over the bye week practices," Mangini said. "I think he's worked hard since the first transition was made and I respect that. That's what I asked him to do, and I look forward to him taking advantage of this opportunity and helping us improve offensively."

Still, Mangini wouldn't make a firm commitment to sticking with Quinn the rest of the way regardless of how things go. 

"With any of these decisions I'm not looking to change, that's never the intention when a decision like this is made."

However, Mangini pointed to some intangibles in which he's seen improvement in Quinn. 
   
 "I like to think that throughout the course of the season, guys continue to improve," he said. "(Quinn's) had more time in the system and I think he's done good things in the role he was playing, which is what I asked of him. I think he's worked at the same level that he worked at as a starter and prior to becoming the starter - and to me, that's the key to any type of improvement."

Asked if benched quarterback Derek Anderson would serve as Quinn's backup, Mangini said only "yes" and did not elaborate any further.
