 Johnny Manziel will ‘probably not’ be used in Week 2 against the New Orleans Saints unless QB Brian Hoyer is injured, according to offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan. 

After Brian Hoyer's second half performance on Sunday, this doesn't come as a shock. Browns fans are clamoring for Manziel to be under center, but as long as Hoyer is producing, it could be a while.

Browns coach Mike Pettine says Johnny Manziel package "could happen" vs the Saints Sunday.

And it begins again ... It's like a rule that we have to speak of Johnny Manziel at least once a week or the world will come to an end. Most figured that Coach Pettine would work him into the offense somehow and it looks like it could happen this week against the Saints. You should under no circumstances start him in any of your Fantasy leagues.

Browns coach Mike Pettine gave an in-game vote of confidence to Browns QB Brian Hoyer when he told the media following the game that inserting QB Johnny Manziel was never an option.

Jeez, are we still having this conversation? It was a hard-fought effort by the Browns on Sunday and there is no reason to be having a quarterback-controversy here. Why can't we all just let Manziel sit on the bench and learn for crying out loud?

Browns head coach Mike Pettine said he would consider playing Johnny Manziel against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Brian Hoyer remains the starter, but the Browns could install a package to get Manziel in for a few drives, similar to what the 49ers did with Colin Kaepernick before he replaced Alex Smith as the starter. Hoyer's already limited fantasy value would take a hit if he starts losing snaps to Manziel.

Johnny Manziel said after the game he thought he took a big step forward in the fourth preseason game.

There was nowhere to go but up. Manziel showed flashes of the potential that had some fantasy players excited coming into training camp, but he is nowhere close to being ready to contribute to a fantasy team.

Coach Mike Pettine won’t rule out playing two QBs at some point this season.

Come on, Mike. Enough already, dude. Stop talking about your QB situation. You made a very sound decision and no one with a brain in their head would fault you for it. Stop trying to pander to the Manziel-fluffers of the world. They're thinking with their hearts. You were thinking with your head. Stand by your call and don't waver.

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.

Maybe Burleson should focus on staying healthy for once in his career rather than spend his time yapping to the media like some brown-nosing, hapless suck-up. He knows that the club will want to move towards Manziel at some point, but early in the season it will be all Hoyer. That's the way it is and that's the way it should be. Manziel should watch and learn for his first year, as much as he possibly can. That's how he's going to get into games -- by keeping his mouth shut and his eyes open. His time will come, but not yet. Let's get over this already, people. And Burleson just needs to shut his yap.

Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 for his middle finger at the Redskins sideline.

Welcome to the NFL, kid. Stop being an idiot.

Johnny Manziel still might take some snaps in Week One against the Steelers. Browns coach Mike Pettine told Ross Tucker on SiriusXM NFL Radio that a Manziel package is on the table. We could potentially look at a two-quarterback system down the road, Pettine said.

Oh jeez. Here we go. A day ago there was no specific package set up for Manziel and now, likely because or moronic public backlash from idiots who don't understand the difficulty in becoming a legit NFL quarterback, Pettine is back-pedaling and talking about giving Manziel early work. That couldn't be a worse plan. Brian Hoyer is perfectly capable of captaining this ship and Pettine needs to sac-up and stand by his decision. Manziel is not ready and everyone knows it. Pettine is making a major mistake here as he gets his coaching feet wet.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will not have a package of plays created for him to run off the bench, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel has been slow to adjust to taking snaps under center and the new playbook.

So Manziel is being treated as a regular, ol' back-up, huh? How novel. As Pettine stated, it's not like Manziel did anything special to distinguish himself in the offense, so why would they create special plays for them? In fact, it's absurd to even think that they should have even considered it.
