Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer drops down in 1-32 starting QB rankings

Every week, from now through the Wednesday before the Super Bowl, the editors at cover32 will gather to rank the NFL’s 32 starting quarterbacks. Depending on what’s happened the previous week, some will rise and some will fall, and even some of the names on the list will change. It’s a never-ending evolution, as the status of the league’s top signal callers is always in flux...

Is Delay In Josh Gordon’s Case A Calculated Move By The NFL?

It has been two plus weeks since Josh Gordon and his team appealed the suspension handed down from the NFL of a one-year ban because of substance abuse. The entire fantasy football community is waiting patiently. A decision is supposed to, maybe, come at the end of this week. Granted, every week since the appeal, a source has said a decision was coming soon. And it hasn’t. I can’t...

Mike Pettine calls out Josh Gordon for lack of effort

Spending much of his career teetering a delicate balance of lethargy and effortless excellence, Josh Gordon’s act has worn thin. Following the Cleveland Browns disappointing outing in their second preseason game, head coach Mike Pettine called out the Pro Bowl receiver for a lack of effort that led to multiple dropped passes. There were a couple plays where I think — we just...

Report: Johnny Manziel losing job more about behavior and less about football

The Cleveland Browns named Brian Hoyer their starting quarterback over Johnny Manziel on Wednesday, and many are wondering why head coach Mike Pettine did not wait until the all-important third preseason game to make his decision. If Pettine was choosing a starter based solely on on-field performance, he probably would have. According to Mary Kay […]

Decision comes a day late, Browns tab Hoyer to start week one

After assuring the world that a starting quarterback, either Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel, would be named on Tuesday, Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine needed what turned out to be only a good night's sleep to make a decision. Brian Hoyer will start week one vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers. "He was the clear leader from the beginning," head coach Mike Pettine...

Boomer: Manziel not ready, would ‘get his ass kicked’ against Steelers

I can’t put my finger on it, but something tells me former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason is not an avid supporter of Cleveland Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel. While head coach Mike Pettine went back on his word to name a starting QB on Tuesday, Boomer has some indirect advice for the 1st-year coach: Johnny Football is not the guy to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one....

Mike Pettine says ‘all options are open’ in QB race for mediocrity

While Brian Hoyer’s performance was wickedly poor on Monday night, at least he won the competition for keeping his composure while stinking against Washington. That much can’t be said for rookie Johnny Manziel, who gave the Redskins sideline the finger after some words hurt the signal caller’s feelings, and most likely ended his chance to start the season opener. If the...

Did the NFL send out a headline alert that read, ‘Manziel Fingers the Redskins’? (pic)

Given the subject and the semi-salacious nature of the incident in question, it’s hardly surprising that “Johnny Manziel Middle-Finger-Gate” is the prevailing NFL story of the day. It’s got everything: Johnny Manziel and … well, Johnny Manziel. That’s pretty much all that’s needed in order for a story to generate significant buzz. Be that as […] The post Did the NFL...

Johnny Manziel hurls a middle finger at Redskins sideline

Looks like Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is intent on keeping his college bad boy image intact as he embarks on hopefully a successful NFL career. No money signs were flashed in-game just yet by Johnny Football, but his frustration seemed to boil over at the constant trash talking he was getting hit with from the Washington Redskins on Monday night. (Note: I can’t...

Watch: Connor Shaw Completes Game-Ending Hail Mary For TD

As expected, the -ongoing quarterback competition between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel was the main storyline during the Cleveland Browns’ second preseason matchup with the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Both signal-callers impressed in the team’s preseason opener and struggled in their second test. Through two games, Hoyer has completed eight of 20 passes for 108 yards...

Preseason Game 2 Preview: Cleveland Browns v. Washington Redskins

With one game in the books, the Browns learned some good things (Joel Bitonio, Chris Kirksey, John Hughes all looked great), some bad things (May God help us if we have to play any backup offensive lineman), and took one step closer to deciding on a quarterback. On Tuesday, after Monday night’s game against the Washington, Mike Pettine will reportedly announce who wins the starting...

Johnny Manziel: I don't think I'm ready for Week 1

Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel is known for his confidence and brash style, so it was a little out of character when he admitted that he's not sure if he's ready to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one. Coming out a week where the young signal caller was late to a meeting and had up and down practices, Manziel sounded like a rookie for once. He...

Tom Cable: Browns violated 'unwritten rule'

Tom Cable isn’t happy, though it’s worth nothing he hasn’t punched anyone yet. Why is Tom Cable unhappy? Because the Cleveland Browns violated an “unwritten rule” in the NFL. Earlier this month, the Seahawks waived right tackle Michael Bowie with an injury distinction. Basically, the Seahawks wanted to put Bowie on IR, but he had to clear waivers first. Bowie didn’t...
