Can Johnny Manziel win the starting spot tonight?

Johnny Manziel has never taken a regular season snap in the NFL, but he is not that far behind the Browns so-called starter. Hoyer is always touted as an experienced veteran, but he’s started the same amount of games (four) as Kirk Cousins. Both quarterbacks are relatively new in the NFL.

Brian Hoyer should NOT be worried about the Rex Grossman signing

My esteemed colleague and Johnny Manziel supporter, Eric Johnson wrote a piece a few days ago saying how Brian Hoyer should be worried after the recent signing of veteran QB Rex Grossman. All due respect, that’s just dumb. As the news just came out that Brian Hoyer will start game two of the preseason on Monday, it became clear that Hoyer is still very securely a part of this team...

Rex Grossman doesn’t make Brian Hoyer expendable

I was listening to Kiley and Booms this morning and Chuck Booms was entertaining the idea that Grossman’s arrival actually makes Brian Hoyer trade bait. It’s hard to believe that Grossman could be that ready considering his last regular season NFL snap came for the Washington Redskins in 2011. Then again, I didn’t really think that I’d be looking at pictures of Grossman in...
