Manziel isn't ready, that's why not. The plan all along was to have him sit last year until he was ready, unfortunately for everyone involved, Manziel would have rather done drugs and drank every night rather than play football. The bottom line is that he completed only 53% of his passes, fumbled 4 times in two games and threw an INT, McCown got ALL of the first team reps the entire off season and had more passing yeards in one game than Manziel had in two. I think Manziel can play in this league, but I don't blame the coaching staff for A) not wanting to put him in there when he isn't ready and B) risk going 2-14 and getting fired for a guy who was more concerned with coke and booze than studying his playbook. I just went and looked and he actually took all of those photos down the "I guess you can't study and party" photo off his instagram. From what I see, from what the coaches and players who destroyed him last year (Joe Thomas), Manziel has done a complete 180 and football is his life now. That doesn't change the fact that he was a completed horses butt all of last season. This isn't about Manziel though.....NO, Manziel might turn out to be the best part....the Browns losing isn't about Manziel. The Browns losing is about this. 1 - Barkevious Mingo - if he were a 4th round pick he would be off the team by now. Never gained any weight, soft as a babies bottom, can't even set the edge in year 3 much less get any pressure on the QB. 1a - Justin GIlbert - inactive for almost the entirety of his NFL career. 1b - Johnny Manziel - Bench - shows hope, but lost an entire season. 1a - Danny Shelton - Pretty solid, can't complain, our run defense up the middle isn't the problem, it's on the edges. 1b - Cam Erving - backup O-lineman. 5 first round picks in 3 years and we are getting a decent Nose Tackle out of it. We have the worst, by far offensive weapons in the entire NFL. We have no offensive identity. We want to be a power run team, yet we have 3 elite pass blockers on our O-line, with bad QB and ZERO WR threats. That is the real problem with the Browns. Not Josh McCown. Throwing Manziel out there "just because" is asinine. If he's not ready, there is no reason to put him out there with this horrendous offense to get killed.
