On Wednesday, Hue Jackson will end the suspense and name his starting quarterback not only for Saturday night’s dress rehearsal game in Tampa, but for the season opener against the Steelers, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
“I kind of want to put this thing to bed by Wednesday,” Jackson said after Monday night’s 10-6 victory over the Giants. “I kind of want to say, ‘Here is where we are going’ and just move forward in that direction.”
Jackson is confident that he’s ‘seen enough’ to make the right decision.
“I’ve done this long enough in my career and know what it looks like and what it feels like and what it should be,” he said. “I feel pretty good about it. We’ll travel in that direction. If I feel like after watching the tape we need to wait a little longer, we’ll wait a little longer. I just feel like we are at the point where we can move forward and feel good about it.”
