Johnny Football Flips It

Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer didn't make Mike Pettine's decision any easier. Good luck picking a starting quarterback after this mess, Coach.

Manziel struggled to hit open receivers and added another gesture to his repertoire -- a middle finger apparently aimed at the Washington Redskins' bench -- while Hoyer completed only two passes in five series. Neither the hot-shot rookie nor the nondescript sixth-year veteran looked ready to claim a No. 1 NFL gig, failing to live up to the big-time setting of a final audition in the Cleveland Browns' 24-23 Monday night loss to the Washington Redskins.

Pettine has said he plans to announce his regular season starter Tuesday. His choices are Manziel, the No. 22 overall pick in the draft who completed 7 of 16 passes for 65 yards and an touchdown, and Hoyer, who was 2 for 6 for 16 yards.

Re: Johnny Football Flips It

I was not impressed with him on the field, or off. I can't help but get the feeling he is the next Tebow, massive wave of hype followed up by mediocre performance on the field, diminishing returns, and then a quick exit.

Re: Johnny Football Flips It

Saintsbro, good point about the fame tide.
Too bad some these people do not understand that the fame tide is not a good thing. I guess they cannot stop commentators from talking, but the guys should not participant in it and separate from it. The fame tide and the hype are career killers.

Boyer is starting qb. Manziel is not. Manziel will get his chance later. He needs to be best backup qb.
Hopefully, this is the end of the story. I am tired of hearing about it.
