Did Johnny Manziel Win the Cleveland Browns Quarterback Job Last Night?

Cleveland Browns should find out as early as today who will be the starting quarterback in Pittsburgh on Sept. 7.

Neither Brian Hoyer nor Johnny Manziel moved the ball well in last night's 23-22 preseason loss to the Washington Redskins.

However, Hoyer was victimized by a dropped pass in the end zone by Andrew Hawkins. Manziel started slowly, but he put together the Browns' first touchdown drive of the preseason, tossing the ball to Dion Lewis, who ran the ball in for an 8-yard score.

The most important thing is for the Browns to pick a quarterback and get him on the same page with the receivers between now and the Steelers game.

Monday Night Football analyst Jon Gruden talked about how the Green Bay Packers had to get behind a young Brett Favre, working through his mistakes until he became great.

Since Hoyer has not grabbed the starting job convincingly, the Browns should go "all in" and see what happens. It won't always be pretty, but it sure will be fun to watch.
