Brian Hoyer named starting QB over Johnny Manziel

In an email release, the Cleveland Browns have named Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback. Head coach Mike Pettine- “He was the clear leader from the beginning,” Pettine said. “We’ve maintained all along that if it was close, I would prefer to go with the more experienced player. Brian has done a great job in the meeting rooms and with his teammates on the practice field...

You may not have heard, but the pedestrian bridge under the shoreway will not be open during Browns games this season. That is not good news for those that choose to park south of the stadium. Here's a map from the City of Cleveland concerning the shutdown of the pedestrian bridge to @FEStadium this season pic.twitter.com/E1RD5XwgPQ — Daryl Ruiter (@RuiterWrongFAN) August 18...

Complex reimages the Nike LeBron line as if he never left Cleveland

While many Cleveland sneakerheads await the release of the LeBron XI in a Wine and Gold colorway, Complex went ahead and redesigned the last few years of Nike LeBrons under the pretense that he never took his talents to Miami. Taking the LeBron VIII, LeBron XI, LeBron X, and LeBron XI, Complex’s Rajah Allarey gave each a lot of wine, a lot of gold, and a dash of navy blue. Uniform...

Indians extend Scott Atchison

He came to camp as a 38-year old non-roster invitee hoping to hang on for one more season in the sun. By May, he was not just a fixture in the pen, but a favorite of manager Terry Francona. Now here we are in August and Scott Atchison, the bullpen’s jack of all trades, has received a contract extension. He will toil in the pen in 2015 with a club option for 2016. “Old-Man Atch”...

Shanahan blasted in critique of Manziel and Hoyer

Mike Tanier at Sports on Earth gives us his impressions of the quarterback competition based on Monday night’s game this morning. He didn’t hold any punches. Pettine and his staff must select between a prospect so physically, mentally, and emotionally unready for the NFL that he can’t get through a Sharknado-quality hate-watchable preseason game without flipping the bird on...

Making the cases for Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer as starter

Neither Johnny Manziel nor Brian Hoyer have won the Cleveland Browns quarterback job. You can make the case for either quarterback at this point, mostly because you can’t make a good case for either. Rather than haggle over who gets to plant their flag in the rotting soil that has become the Browns’ QB depth chart, I figured I would just make the case for both guys so we can...

That moment when Johnny Manziel found out his obscene gesture went viral

The only thing more entertaining than that gesture that Johnny Manziel made toward the Washington sidelines last night was this scene later. A Browns P.R. staff member, Rob McBurnett, appears to be telling Johnny Manziel about how the cameras caught him flipping the bird and probably about how the entire Internet was watching it over and over again. The funniest part of this clip...

Woe are quarterbacks for Ohio teams, While We’re Waiting

Happy Tuesday WFNY! Why did the Browns even have a QB competition? I found myself thinking about that question this morning. Perhaps a good deal of it is hindsight, in having seen a couple of preseason games now, but Johnny Manziel doesn’t look like a QB who is ready for the NFL right now. Which of course doesn’t mean he won’t eventually be ready. Or that he won’t eventually...

Browns Preseason Game 2: Winners and Losers

Oof. Entering Monday night the quarterback competition was really up for grabs, and unfortunately for Browns fans, neither quarterback took the opportunity to win the job. You know the drill. It’s time for winners and losers. WINNER: Armonty Bryant. The Michael Lombardi 7th round gamble is having as good a showing in these preseason games as anyone. Bryant earned some time with...

Browns lose to Redskins 24-23

The much anticipated Monday Night Football game was not a fun one to watch. The Browns lost to the Washington Redskins 24 to 23 on Monday. The main focus by most fans was on the quarterback competition between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel. But the fans really did not see much of a competition from either quarterback. Both QBs were underwhelming and played like they didn’t want...

Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer don’t show up for QB competition in Washington

Does anyone want to “win” this Cleveland Browns’ quarterback job? Based on the first half of the Browns’ second pre-season game against first-team defense, you wouldn’t think so. What happened? As we all know Brian Hoyer got the first crack. You can’t necessarily blame Brian Hoyer for all the miscues that started the Browns’ pre-season game against Washington. There...

Jerry Jones' son 'snatched' Manziel card away on draft day

Have you guys heard about how the Dallas Cowboys almost drafted Johnny Manziel? I thought everyone had, but it’s come up again, this time with even more details. Jim Dent has written in his new book that Jerry Jones’ son “snatched” the Manziel draft card from his dad’s hands, otherwise Johnny Football would be in Brandon Weeden’s spot, presumably. Jones made his “that...

Kyrie Irving: “I haven’t been a leader”

Though many yearned for Kyrie Irving to lead an otherwise fledgling franchise through a time of disarray, the two-time NBA All-Star admits that he was anything but. “Everybody asks me if this is my year to be a leader … I haven’t been so far though, not at all,” Irving said in an interview with Real GM. “I’ve just been a kid trying to figure it out.

#ESPNForecast thinks highly of LeBron James, Cavs

This may come as a shock, but the folks at ESPN.com continue to think highly of Cleveland Cavaliers small forward LeBron James. Garnering 230 votes, James tops Kevin Durant and (a bit of a surprise) Derrick Rose in ESPN’s poll to predict the 2014-15 MVP. Another season, another MVP for LeBron. Yawn. #ESPNForecast — K D (@Got2b_KD) August 15, 2014 @ESPNNBA Even as he enters his...

Indians almost acquired Josh Willingham…Again

Those are Josh Willingham’s legs as he slowly rounds the bases It wasn’t that long ago that the Cleveland Indians front office would not give Josh Willingham an extra year on his contract, ultimately losing him to a division rival. Earlier this month, the Minnesota Twins waived the right-handed slugger and traded him to the Kansas City Royals—the team that now sits in first...

John Calipari doesn’t regret turning down Cavs’ $60 million

Prior to LeBron James’ return to Cleveland, Cavs majority owner Dan Gilbert was primed to make John Calipari one well-paid NBA coach—a $60 million offer which was eventually turned down. But now that James and a host of other quality players have decided to make their way to Cleveland through various channels, Coach Cal, who returned to the University of Kentucky, says he...

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...

The Browns might have the fifth fastest team in the NFL

Using an arbitrary and made-up methodology of measuring, Bill Barnwell has concluded that the Cleveland Browns might be the fifth fastest team in the NFL. This is the kind of stuff that doesn’t matter at all… until it does. By that, I mean that measuring the Cleveland Browns in any other manner other than wins feels pretty trivial by this point. Still, when others do it, I find...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Dominant starting pitching, slumbering bats, and Ubaldo being Ubaldo

This weekend series was once again another example of what this 2014 Cleveland Indians team is all about. The AL East leading Baltimore Orioles came to Cleveland with the biggest margin of any division top dog in baseball. Their offense is beastly, with power up and down the lineup. So naturally the story of the weekend was the Indians starting pitching. You know, the group that...
