According to Adam Schefter the Browns have named Hoyer the starting QB.

This basically means he will start the first 4 weeks and depending on the results, the Browns may keep him in or be calling for Johnny Football. What a ridiculous situation they have there in Cleveland; they have no clue how to build a successful team.

I was really hoping Johnny Football would start so we could officially welcome him to the NFL.

Brian Hoyer to start for Browns

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," 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."

Hoyer started Monday's preseason game against the Washington Redskins, completing 2-of-6 passes for 16 yards. Manziel, the No. 22 pick in the draft, completed 7 of 16 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown.

The move comes on the heels of Manziel being caught on camera during the game with a middle-finger gesture toward the Washington bench.

"That type of behavior is unacceptable," Pettine said Tuesday. "He should know more than anyone that all eyes are on him."

Looks like the middle finger but the nail in the coffin for Manziel.

I've said all along it was the decision to start Hoyer. He looked really good last season until he got hurt. If he can pick up where he left off last year, he gives the Browns a better chance to win right now. And if he struggles, then they can bring in Manziel as the savior.

On the other hand, if they started Manziel and he struggled a lot, there's no way they could bench him and bring in Hoyer. Well, of course they could, but that wouldn't be a good situation.
