Brian Hoyer Starting for Cleveland Browns Vs. Washington Redskins: is That So Wrong?

Some Cleveland Browns fans can't wait to see Johnny Manziel emerge as the starting quarterback for their favorite team.

Those fans protested on Twitter yesterday after Head Coach Mike Pettine announced that Brian Hoyer would start the second preseason game for the Browns.

"It's just something right now where we are comfortable with Brian going out there to start the game," Pettine said. "I think it's a little overblown as to who the starter will be."

Of course, after Monday night's game, Pettine will probably declare his permanent starter in order to prepare the offense for the regular season.

If that starter is Brian Hoyer, that is not such a bad thing.

If Hoyer can't beat out a rookie who is just learning how to run a pro-style offense, then the Browns don't have two capable starters. They have zero.

All Browns fans should hope that Hoyer can remain as health and effective as possible, so Manziel will have all the time he needs to prepare when the coached inevitably call his number.
