    Browns to run "cyclone" package for Senecca

    Got this from ESPN talking about Senecca's role in the Brown offense:

    Early last week, the hot rumor coming out of Cleveland was regarding the Browns' "real" interest in Colt McCoy. We know they need a QB of the future, but during those discussions -- and the ones fixated on whether Jake Delhomme is still a legit NFL starter -- Seneca Wallace was lost.

    We found him in a column from Geoff Hobson of Bengals.com. Hobson quotes Browns coach Eric Mangini talking about Wallace in saying, "You can put him in a game at other points, depending on the risk tolerance. And he can do some things with him and [Josh] Cribbs and Jerome [Harrison] and whoever else." Not exactly sure what "some things" means, but we could see the team expand their Wildcat offense a bit (it'd have to be renamed the Cyclone, after Iowa State); Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain Dealer says the team is "talking about" doing just that, although he does repeat the risk tolerance issue. In 2009, Cribbs (a former college QB) ran the formation for the Browns with varied success. Having Wallace back there increases the options and would give defensive coordinators nightmares.

    Re: Browns to run "cyclone" package for Senecca

    I almost wish he was a third string quarterback so everyone wouldn't be so scared to actually use him. He spends so much time on the sideline "just in case" the starter goes down that he can't be used to his potential at all.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Third string quarterback is almost always inactive.

    Re: Browns to run "cyclone" package for Senecca

    I'm surprised he never got moved to WR or another position by a team. He always reminded me a little bit of Antwaan Randle El. Seneca might have had a little more meat on his bones, but still.

    I just want someone to let him start. He's proven he can be an effective QB. Much more say than say coughTavarisJacksoncough.

    Re: Browns to run "cyclone" package for Senecca

    From what I've heard, Seattle wanted to use him in a "Randle-El" role, however he didn't want to do that. That's why he ended up at ISU in the first place - everybody wanted him to be a DB, he wanted to be QB. I think he'd be better used if he was actually on the field.

    Re: Browns to run "cyclone" package for Senecca

    I always wanted to see him as a starting QB in the NFL too, but at this point I'd rather see him do whatever it takes to get on the field regularly, even if it's at WR. He's not getting any younger.

    That's what I'm thinking.
