Cleveland Browns Name Brian Hoyer As Starting QB


The Quarterback battle in Cleveland has been settled, at least for now. Brian Hoyer will be the Browns starting QB on September 7th when they face off against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Johnny Manziel will be the number two option.

“He was the clear leader from the beginning,” Pettine said in a statement. “We’ve maintained all along that if it was close, I would prefer to go with the more experienced player. Brian has done a great job in the meeting rooms and with his teammates on the practice field and in the locker room.”

It’s not as if Hoyer was blowing Manziel out in practice. The reports are that Johnny’s middle finger outburst during Monday night football, and his overall cavalier attitude is what really caused him to lose the starting spot. I bet by week 3 there will be another change.

But for now, Brian Hoyer ladies and gentlemen.
