Shutdown Corner

  • Is sitting Johnny Manziel to start season the best move for him?

    Brian Hoyer was named the Browns' starting quarterback but make no mistake, that announcement had little to do with Hoyer.

    We know what Hoyer is, and he has reaffirmed it this preseason. He's probably a reasonably good backup. He is 8-of-20 for 108 yards this preseason. He had 16 passing yards and led one first down in four drives on Monday night against Washington. He's just not an average or better starting quarterback (and please, please stop with the "he was 3-0 last season!" stuff; quarterback wins is the stinkiest of all garbage stats and he completed two passes before getting hurt in one of the three games).

    The Browns didn't make this move because of Hoyer. The decision came down to what's best for Johnny Manziel.
