The Cleveland Browns have committed to start Brian Hoyer over rookie Johnny Manziel at quarterback to begin the 2014 season, the team announced Wednesday morning.

"He was the clear leader from the beginning," coach Mike 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."

I'm disappointed that Ryan Shazier will not have the opportunity to destroy him, but at the same time, I find it hilarious how many Manziel jerseys the Browns have sold for someone who may hardly even see the field this year, if ever.

They play twice so RDS will eventually get his chance, unless Manziel goes missing on one of his weekend Vegas excursions.

It's the right choice, if for no other reason then to send a message to the very hard-headed Mr. Football that he needs to behave like a professional.

Thank the Maker that I was born in Ohio, cradle of coaches, US Presidents, confederate-stomping Generals, and home of The Ohio State University Football Buckeyes- 2014 UNDISPUTED National Champions!

Did Johnny flip him him off when he found out?

(and FitzBuck was clearly the winner)

And the Legend known as Mr.Johnny Football has started to crumble in week 1.

Mark my words..I don't need acceptance. I'm catching interceptions on you innocent pedestrians.

I have a feeling Manziel will be next man up quite soon.
