Browns coach Mike Pettine was hoping to name his starting quarterback for the regular season today.
But after watching Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel take turns playing hot potato with the gig last night, he’s decided to wait.
Via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Pettine said “we’re not in a position to make it at this time.”
Hoyer did next to nothing last night, and Manziel showed plenty of rookie jitters, from missing open receivers to flipping the bird to the Washington sideline (and alerting every opposing defense that his skin could get gotten under).
In fact, there were times last night when the Browns seemed to need a dose of Rex Grossman.
So we’ll continue to watch, and wait, and ponder the significance of every practice rep and digital gesture.
You’ve been warned.
