It’s not time for Johnny Manziel to take over… yet

Despite an awful showing in Jacksonville against a really bad Jaguars team, it’s not time for Johnny Football. Brian Hoyer and the Cleveland Browns offense had a miserable day, but there’s little reason to think it would have been better with Johnny Manziel under center. His mobility might have helped at times, but it’s silly to think that the Browns were one player—even...

Is Brian Hoyer the Browns’ real quarterback of the future?

The Cleveland Browns have a problem. It’s a nice problem, but a problem nonetheless, and one that may require some creative front office tap dancing. Brian Hoyer might actually be good. Or at least the version of “good” the Browns would prefer in a run-heavy offense. We saw a hint of this last season, which is why there were so many rumblings Johnny Manizel would sit for his...

This is what Hoyer had to say a day later. “First of all, I want to address...
