Coach Mike Pettine hasn’t closed the book on the competition that has captivated Cleveland and the NFL, despite naming Brian Hoyer the starter for Monday in Washington. "All of our options are still on the table," Pettine said Friday regarding a Week 1 starter.

Captivated? Come on. That has to be a beat writer word there. While the novelty of Johnny Manziel is still there to a certain extent, the knowledgeable football fan and savvy fantasy owner know a bunch of lip service is what's coming out of Cleveland right now. With such limited complementary personnel, the Browns have no intention of throwing Johnny Football to the wolves. At least not in the first few weeks of the season. Maybe there's a quarterback change later on down the road, but only if Hoyer gets hurt or plays so poorly that a change is immediately warranted. Then, of course, there's Rex Grossman now, so that further complicates the situation.
