Did Johnny Manziel attempt to trip a Redskins player (Video)

It appears that Browns rookie Johnny Manziel may have tried to trip a Redskins player during Monday night’s preseason game. GIF: Johnny Manziel with a little tripping on Chase Minnifield post sack?

Boomer: Manziel not ready, would ‘get his ass kicked’ against Steelers

I can’t put my finger on it, but something tells me former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason is not an avid supporter of Cleveland Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel. While head coach Mike Pettine went back on his word to name a starting QB on Tuesday, Boomer has some indirect advice for the 1st-year coach: Johnny Football is not the guy to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one....

Mike Pettine Not Ready To Name Browns Starting QB Yet

Mike Pettine seems to love the drama just as much as the media covering the Cleveland Browns. Despite setting a Tuesday deadline to name his starting quarterback, the Browns head coach told the media that he’s not prepared to name a week-1 starter at this time.  “Under ideal circumstances, we would have named one,” Pettine said on a conference call. “If we have to wait...

Mike Pettine says ‘all options are open’ in QB race for mediocrity

While Brian Hoyer’s performance was wickedly poor on Monday night, at least he won the competition for keeping his composure while stinking against Washington. That much can’t be said for rookie Johnny Manziel, who gave the Redskins sideline the finger after some words hurt the signal caller’s feelings, and most likely ended his chance to start the season opener. If the...

Did the NFL send out a headline alert that read, ‘Manziel Fingers the Redskins’? (pic)

Given the subject and the semi-salacious nature of the incident in question, it’s hardly surprising that “Johnny Manziel Middle-Finger-Gate” is the prevailing NFL story of the day. It’s got everything: Johnny Manziel and … well, Johnny Manziel. That’s pretty much all that’s needed in order for a story to generate significant buzz. Be that as […] The post Did the NFL...

Boomer Esiason: Johnny Manziel will get his a** kicked if he starts against the Steelers

Former NFL quarterback Boomer Esiason believes Johnny Manziel will have a hard time against the Steelers in their season opener if he starts right away. “I’m telling you right now, he is not even remotely close to being ready,” Esiason said during Tuesday’s “Boomer and Carton.” “If he opened as the starting quarterback in Pittsburgh in Week 1, he would get his ass...

Making the cases for Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer as starter

Neither Johnny Manziel nor Brian Hoyer have won the Cleveland Browns quarterback job. You can make the case for either quarterback at this point, mostly because you can’t make a good case for either. Rather than haggle over who gets to plant their flag in the rotting soil that has become the Browns’ QB depth chart, I figured I would just make the case for both guys so we can...

Johnny Manziel hurls a middle finger at Redskins sideline

Looks like Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is intent on keeping his college bad boy image intact as he embarks on hopefully a successful NFL career. No money signs were flashed in-game just yet by Johnny Football, but his frustration seemed to boil over at the constant trash talking he was getting hit with from the Washington Redskins on Monday night. (Note: I can’t...

Watch: Connor Shaw Completes Game-Ending Hail Mary For TD

As expected, the -ongoing quarterback competition between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel was the main storyline during the Cleveland Browns’ second preseason matchup with the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Both signal-callers impressed in the team’s preseason opener and struggled in their second test. Through two games, Hoyer has completed eight of 20 passes for 108 yards...

WATCH: Connor Shaw throws Hail Mary TD as time expires

Monday night’s preseason game between the Washington Redskins and Cleveland Browns was quite exciting for a meaningless game. While Johnny Manziel only made headlines for flipping the bird to the ‘Skins’ bench, a guy no one seems to be talking about played the best at quarterback for Cleveland. Connor Shaw was the most consistent out of Manziel, himself, and Brian Hoyer ...

Cleveland Browns Should Give Connor Shaw a Shot at the Starter's Job

With two preseason games to go the Cleveland Browns were hoping to name the starting quarterback after Monday night's game against the Washington Redskins. If they do based off the body of work shown the job should go to the one game that has not been mentioned as even a dark horse candidate for the job.I'm talking about former South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw.@JustinKing224What...

Preseason Game 2 Preview: Cleveland Browns v. Washington Redskins

With one game in the books, the Browns learned some good things (Joel Bitonio, Chris Kirksey, John Hughes all looked great), some bad things (May God help us if we have to play any backup offensive lineman), and took one step closer to deciding on a quarterback. On Tuesday, after Monday night’s game against the Washington, Mike Pettine will reportedly announce who wins the starting...

Johnny Manziel: I don't think I'm ready for Week 1

Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel is known for his confidence and brash style, so it was a little out of character when he admitted that he's not sure if he's ready to face the Pittsburgh Steelers in week one. Coming out a week where the young signal caller was late to a meeting and had up and down practices, Manziel sounded like a rookie for once. He...

Tom Cable: Browns violated 'unwritten rule'

Tom Cable isn’t happy, though it’s worth nothing he hasn’t punched anyone yet. Why is Tom Cable unhappy? Because the Cleveland Browns violated an “unwritten rule” in the NFL. Earlier this month, the Seahawks waived right tackle Michael Bowie with an injury distinction. Basically, the Seahawks wanted to put Bowie on IR, but he had to clear waivers first. Bowie didn’t...
