Browns | Two-quarterback system? (Tue Aug 26, 09:47 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer will open the year as the starter, but when asked about installing a package of plays for QB Johnny Manziel, head coach Mike Pettine said that it is tough for a defensive coordinator to prepare for two quarterbacks.

Browns | Johnny Manziel has support (Fri Aug 22, 12:37 PM) - Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has support from veteran Browns receiver Nate Burleson, who said, 'I'll just say this, Johnny's still the man.' Burleson also noted that he is pleased with head coach Mike Pettine's decision to start QB Brian Hoyer.

Our View: We're sure the rookie has support from other teammates, so this news comes as no surprise. Manziel may begin the season as a backup, but he's going to be the starter eventually. Likely around the halfway point of the season.

Browns | Johnny Manziel could play later (Fri Aug 22, 10:17 AM) - Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could play with QB Brian Hoyer in a two-quarterback system later in the season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said a package for Manziel is on the table. Pettine said he didn't anticipate a platoon early in the season. Pettine also made it clear that Hoyer is on a week-to-week trial.

Our View: This Browns QB situation is still a mess. Neither quarterback looked good against Washington last Monday night. Hoyer is the starter, but Manziel could take over after the first month of the season. Using a QBBC during a game doesn't work, and we've got plenty of examples through NFL history (Craig Morton/Roger Staubach, Tommy Maddox/Shawn Moore, etc).

Browns | Brian Hoyer named starter (Wed Aug 20, 08:42 AM) - Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer has been named the starting quarterback over QB Johnny Manziel. Head coach Mike Pettine wrote the announcement in an e-mail and said Manziel made great strides, but Hoyer had a decided edge.

Our View: This is not so much because Hoyer was good as it was Manziel not doing the things on and off of the field that would make the Browns feel comfortable starting him week 1. Manziel still has a QB1 ceiling for fantasy when he does take the field, but that might not be until at least October if Hoyer stays healthy.
