SAN DIEGO -- Doug Flutie took the majority of snaps for the
second straight day, but San Diego Chargers coach Marty
Schottenheimer said he'll wait until Friday to announce his
starting quarterback for this weekend's game against Minnesota.
Schottenheimer said Thursday he wants to keep the Vikings
guessing whether they'll have to face the scrambling Flutie or Drew Brees, a pocket passer.
"I thought they both did a nice job today," Schottenheimer
"Fortunately, I'm not in the situation where we have to make
this decision immediately and we're not going to announce it until
Flutie, 41, replaced the ineffective Brees last Sunday and led
the Chargers (1-7) to their only score in a 20-7 loss at Chicago.
LaDainian Tomlinson missed practice again after having a wisdom
tooth removed Tuesday. Schottenheimer thinks Tomlinson will be back
at practice Friday.
