Has anyone picked up Manziel yet?
I feel for RG III,although he’s a millionaire and I’m not.
Well, good luck to RG3.. Who knows?
After manziel, anything is possible.
Maybe they can re-hire Johnny Football as a QB coach, too.
Don’t they have a high draft pick to try rebuilding with?
I hope the Cowboys sign him as a backup for ROmo.
And keep Hardy.
Info about Manziel and Jerry Jones:
What is it with Cleveland constantly signing over priced under performing QBs? Bengals and Steelers fans have to love it though.
While I believe Griffin is a stand up guy, and I’d like to see him succeed, his career has been profoundly predictable:
Early success, followed by a string if injuries contributed to by his excessive reliance on running. You simply can’t do that in the NFL unless you’re a freak of nature. Griffin is a superb athlete, but he’s not at the level where he can escape hits 98% of the time.
Being on the Browns pretty much seals his fate.
Will you all quit the Browns bashing? Hue Jackson is a no nonsense coach who will rebuild the Browns from the ground up. RGIII is a fantastic pickup that will outclass the past 5 quarterbacks put together. Go Browns! Go Dof Pound!
I question how “stand up” Griffin is. Few of his teammates were clamoring for his return. He also got caught sexting a Hooters waitress in Richmond VA the night before his wedding. The media quickly buried that story.
I’ve lived near Cleveland for just over ten years. All I can say is GO PATS!!

The Brown suck without RGIII. They will suck even more with him.
I think you are ignoring the impact of poor coaching and poor teams.
And while not the best quarterback, Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl.
Just when you think the Browns can’t get any worse. . . .
