It’s officially “Johnny Football” time in Cleveland!
The Browns management announced today the Johnny Manziel will be the team’s starting quarterback for the rest of the season.
The move makes plenty of sense, as Cleveland currently sits in the AFC North basement with a record of 2-8.
Handing the keys over to Johnny Manziel for the remainder of the 2015 season will allow the Browns coaching staff to see if “JFF” is truly a viable option under center for the future.
Manziel is coming off a fine performance against the Pittsburgh Steelers, which saw him throw for 372 yards and a touchdown.
Head coach Mike Pettine had this to say about the decision to name Manziel the team’s starting QB:
“He deserves this opportunity.”
The Browns will play host to division rivals the Baltimore Ravens (2-7) next Monday night (November 30) in Cleveland.
