Josh McCown holding off Johnny Manziel, and other questions on the Cleveland Browns

We exchanged five questions with sister blog Dawgs By Nature's Chris Pokorny on the upcoming game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cleveland Browns. 1. Has Josh McCown looked any better behind an offensive line that at least seems competent? Is he going to hold off Johnny Manziel for the starting job? I've been visiting Browns training camps for about five years now, and Josh McCown looked like the most comfortable quarterback I've seen in a Browns uniform during that span (although that is not a difficult feat to accomplish). It's tough to judge McCown based on camp, though, because...

Browns quarterback Josh McCown eager to fine-tune his game at scene of his dismal 2014 season

At age 36, Browns quarterback Josh McCown realizes he’s old by NFL standards.But just in case the veteran journeyman ever forgets he’s no spring chicken, his younger teammates will be there to remind him.“He has a daughter that’s 17. I’m 23. That’s close in age. You know what I mean?” Browns left guard Joel Bitonio said after a recent practice. “The other day I asked him, ‘Man, you’re kind of old. Did you ever think about stop playing?’ You know just like joking with him, but I’m like, ‘I probably didn’t say that right.’”Yes, McCown has been around for a while....

With Johnny Manziel out the last 2 preseason games, Josh McCown a lock to start opener

Johnny Manziel will rest his sore elbow for the final two preseason games, and he won't press Josh McCown for the starting job anymore.

Browns coach Mike Pettine says Johnny Manziel likely out for rest of preseason

Browns coach Mike Pettine said quarterback Johnny Manziel will definitely be sidelined Saturday night in the third exhibition game at Tampa Bay, and he'll also likely sit out the preseason finale at Chicago because of his sore right elbow. Given the short week and not wanting to put him out there against Chicago, I could see he'll just be down for the next two [preseason games], Pettine said Thursday after practice. Pettine also essentially named projected starting quarterback Josh McCown the starter for the Sept. 13 regular-season opener against the New York Jets. Pettine has called...

BEREA: Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel will likely be shut down for at least the rest of this week because of elbow soreness he has dealt with on and off since high school.Coach Mike Pettine said Manziel probably won’t play Saturday night in the third preseason game at Tampa Bay. So projected starter Josh McCown and third-stringer Thad Lewis would handle the quarterback duties against the Buccaneers.“Could [Manziel] play if he had to?” Pettine said Wednesday after practice. “More than likely he could. But why do that in the preseason? If this was the regular season, it might...
