The Truth As I Know It

Aug 08, 2014 -- 2:50pm

By Greg Brinda |



It's getting old and hopefully it's going to stop.

It started in the early 90s and nothing has changed in 20 plus years.

I'm talking about Browns quarterback battles and controversies.

The simple reason this is still going on is that the team hasn't found a bonafide number one signal caller since Bernie Kosar. And here we are in 2014 and it starts all over again with Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel.

Seriously one of these guys has to be the man.

We hope.

Honestly I don't really care who ultimately wins the battle. I don't have a favorite.

There are however certain realities. Hoyer doesn't have a lot of game experience but he has some and was successful. He also learned from one of the greatest ever Tom Brady.

Manziel on the other hand is the media darling. He single handedly has brought more attention to the team than anyone in recent memory.
Manziel has also shown in college and limited NFL practice time that he might have what it takes to be a star in the league. Preseason will dictate just how much he has and how far he has to go to make it in the NFL.

For now the debate rolls on and on and on. Sides are being taken. The arguments get old and boring. Assumptions are being made without any real evidence. The fans aren't united and won't be until there's a conclusive winner.

I long for the days when everyone was on board with what they had.

Back in 1988 the Browns after two AFC Championship appearances ran into the injury bug. Bernie Kosar, Gary Danielson, and Mike Pagel all got hurt. Bernie was the man but fans were on board with the other two.
When all of them went down the Browns ventured to Florida and plucked Don Strock off a golf course. He came in and helped the team go 500 and make the post season as a Wild Card. That year Browns fans actually liked four quarterbacks.

Since then fans have barely liked one.

Vinny-Bernie, Couch-Holcomb, Brady-DA, Weeden-anybody and now it's Hoyer-Manziel.

This needs to stop. And hopefully this will be the year the team finds its man.

If not it will be back to same old arguments that we have seen and heard for nearly a quarter of a century.

And the results will be another bad season, something we have become far too accustomed to

I Think...

Jul 23, 2014 -- 2:55pm

By ESPN Clevealnd Staff |



I really do like NFL training camp. I just can't wait until every fan analyzes every throw that Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel make and then call us with a scouting report and who should start.

I really think this is one of the more talented Browns teams since coming back in 1999.

I also love the fact that an 8-8 season for most Browns fans will be like winning the Super Bowl

Josh Gordon is going to be most likely suspended for a year. And yes, there are a lot fans ready to welcome him back at some point. So what makes anyone think this guy will ever come back and stay clean and out of trouble?

I like Mike Pettine and I believe he will succeed. Yet there are some who think he will last just a couple of seasons. If that happens this franchise really is doomed.

May the best man win the starting quarterback spot. I do think it will be Hoyer. Why some of you are rooting for one over the other boggles the mind. What don’t you get about the best one winning the job and supporting that?

I think Johnny has a lot to learn and is about to get a reality check. Why do some of you think he's already the second coming?

LeBron is back and the Cavs are legitimate again. It was the only way this franchise had any chance to win anything. Now go and win something! No excuses.

I think Kevin Love is a real good player. With him it makes the team even better. Speaking of the second coming, I got news for you. He is not. He had better not get hurt and he had better learn to play some defense.

No one. I mean no one has said a bad thing about new Cavs coach David Blatt. But I know this. He has never coached in this country, let alone the NBA. I want to see him coach when the bullets start to fly.

The Cavs sold out their season tickets. LeBron’s jersey sold out at the NBA store. Johnny's jersey is the number one seller. Clevelanders do have money and do spend it. So Tribe fans, stop whining when you have to pay 20 or 30 bucks for a ticket. You really sound dumb.

Speaking of the Tribe, as frustrating and inconsistent as they are, they are in the hunt for a playoff spot.

I'll say it here first. The Indians will make the post season again. Don't ask me how. They just will...I think.
