Literally hilarious how much love there is for this kid.  My hope is that he's the starter by the time they play the Ravens ;D.  My biggest critque of him is that he goes through NONE of his reads.  If his first guy isn't open, he runs.  If his first guy is open for short yardage, he runs.  If he's running and his first guy becomes open, THEN he passes, but it's usually inaccurate.  An experienced defense will eat him, a QB who doesn't go through his reads is an easy snack.  But I'll give it to him, he is speedy.  But then again, so is Mosley ;)

Hoyer is much better than him. Honestly, I believe he is too slow to run against NFL defenses, let alone playing against the best defenses in the world in the AFCN. When he took off running hoping to turn the corner, he was met by 2 defenders. He's not fast enough.

Solomon was totally out of line as a commentator to make a bone headed statement like He's playing with the second team here. He blamed the second team for Manziels missteps. If he struggles against 2s, how will he do with the 1s? Is Solomon going to blame Joe Thomas? Jordan Cameron? Lol

I believed he was a waste of a first round pick. I believe Cleveland has their QB in Hoyer but they are the Browns and will squander their season half way through to give Manziel the team. I can't wait for Suggs to smash that little worm!!!

Does anyone remember what happened when RG3 faced us. He got hurt. If Cleveland thinks they are going to have there quarterback run against then they are adding to there list hurt the starter.

The media tends to latch on to special college players who are polarizing just to get more viewership. This hype in my view is unethical and ESPN leads the charge in lack of ethics in sport....

he was mediocre in his first preseason game. I don't get the hype. He doesn't look as bad as Tebow but I wasn't wowed or anything.

 

And why is he getting the start in the second Pre-season game? Hoyer played better than he did

Manziel, to me, looks like a slower version of Colin Kaepernick - with the main difference being that Kaep is actually fairly decent at progressing through his reads during plays before taking off running.

 

Both aren't very accurate on throws, which will cause lots of headaches for their offenses during the course of a season.  On the other hand, both are fairly elusive and if they take off can gash defenses for a significant amount of yardage at a time.  Goal line defense becomes very difficult against them with the read option.

 

As has been said before, Hoyer is clearly the better option at QB.  Not really sure why the Browns bothered with Manziel.

I'm guessing that they want Manziel to have snaps with the first offense since he didn't stink up the joint, per se. Just a guess. I could care less though. Manziel will learn that he will not get away with what he did in college.

I wouldn't be too concerned with Manziel.   Playing in the AFC North, it will only be a matter of time before someone cleans his clock and I don't think he is a Timex either! lol

I wouldn't even consider him to be a free watch that comes with a child's cereal

Yeah it is sickening. Johnny was 7/11 for 63 yards. Blake Bortles was also 7/11 but had 117 yards but let's ignore that fact. The media treats it as if 7/11 for 63 yards means he should be the starter but Bortles does it and gets more yards and it's a preseason game, it didn't mean nothing.

Yes. Sickening is the right emotion. This kid is being hyped so much that I feel bad for him because they are setting him up for failure, although he seems to enjoy the attention a too much...

That's why I don't feel bad for him...at all. He plays for the Browns is reason number one. Number two is the fact that he's making millions (the money gesture comes to mind). Perhaps if he played for the Jags or Texans (just to see Manziel vs. Luck 2x a year would be intriguing to say the least) then maybe I'd root for him.

I agree, Manziel played with the 2nd stringers and ESPN says, is it now Johnny's spot to lose? (Starting QB) there's a big difference between Suh and Ziggy Ansah coming at you than some guys trying to make the team. Johnny will learn that lesson all too quick. I can't wait for Suggs and Doom to make a Johnny Football Sandwich between purple bread

one, Johnny isn't starting the preseason game so i believe Hoyer has the lead. two, Josh Gordon might be done for the season and that kills for either QB.

I don't think the media will bash the browns for the decision. It is better for johnny to replace hoyer at mid season then for johnny to start and lose a couple of games and then hoyer starts to win games after johnny gets injured when they face the ravens.

Maybe, Johnny will turn into a bigger headache than I thought.

Forget the hype. At least Johnny Manziel is reasonable. Laughs, "I don't think I'm ready for Pittsburgh right now. I've only played 1 game."

 

Manziel is learning...humility? I don't like this!

He's not going to last in the AFCN. Hoyer is clearly a better QB and I don't know for the life of me how those analyst could even think he's better in any facet of the game

yeah, no teams afraid of Johnny just wait till Ngata puts a hit on him. The ESPN hype machines just taking it too far, got to start watching NFL network more or something

So... I heard there was a game last night?  Yeesh.  I think I can safely say this is the only time that I'll ever utter these words:  they should have taken that game off of the air and put on a WNBA game.  That was Charles Barkley "turrible."

 

If I'm Pettine - name Hoyer the freaking starting QB already and end this stupid nonsense.  You KNOW he is your week one guy, you knew this before training camp even started.  Hoyer played awful last night yes but even in three games last season you've seen 100 times more than you can hope for with Manziel currently so just end the drama already.

 

Also I had no idea that Braylon Edwards came back to Cleveland wearing a #12 jersey last night!  Good lord Josh - that was abysmal.  Speaking of abysmal - why in the world is he even out there late in the game?  Whether it's a season or not he will be suspended so why let him take up valuable playing time from WRs on our roster that desperately need the playing time?

 

I dunno man... really confused as to what in the world was going on last night.  At least our secondary came to play.
