|New coach Eric Mangini will have his hands full trying to get the Browns offense downfield this season.|
Not every Browns player is doomed for failure. Even though Lewis failed to reach 100 yards rushing in any game last season, he could well have a solid game or two in 2009. After all, with Eric Mangini calling the plays, expect a more conservative, run-the-ball, throw-it-short approach to moving the ball downfield. The approach can shorten the game and give the defense an extended recovery time, when it works, and heck, maybe this strategy will even get this team to .500 in '09. However, from a fantasy standpoint, it severely lowers the ceiling on fantasy output for receivers such as Edwards, as well as whomever winds up under center. We're definitely leaning toward Quinn to end up as the winner of this quarterback competition. But whether we end up being right or wrong, drafting either Quinn or Anderson -- or both, and waiting for this whole thing to play out -- is a waste of your time and precious draft picks.
