The Browns will have to determine who their backup is going to be this season, because it's unlikely they'll keep both Colt McCoy and Seneca Wallace. McCoy's showing as a starter last season didn't endear him to the front office. The Browns were looking for an upgrade all offseason after he finished with a 4-9 record in 2011 and the 25th-best quarterback rating. Still, McCoy has the potential and the mindset to serve as a capable backup. He's seven years younger than Wallace and has as many starts (21). But Wallace has been a favorite of Mike Holmgren since their days in Seattle, and that could give him the edge for the No. 2 spot. The problem is Wallace looked ragged last year when he replaced McCoy (remember him not spiking the ball in Baltimore to stop the clock before halftime and set up a field goal) and has a 1-8 record as a starter the past three seasons.
Confidence rating (out of 100) if Weeden goes out for extended period: 46.
