“Sources Says: Random Thoughts From a Random Guy” by Josh Conn… a.k.a. “League Sources”
— There are a lot of people who are already clamoring for Johnny Manziel to take over the Browns, if only because the general feeling is that the Browns can’t get any worse, so why not play the young guy? Before I address the misguided nature of the “heck, why not play him?” school of thought, Browns fans should realize that… well, yes, they aren’t very good so far… but look around the league. There are a whole lot of worse dumpster fires burning in the NFL right now: Detroit, Chicago, San Francisco, and, yes, maybe even Baltimore. Yes, the Browns management and coaching seems to want to continue to shoot off their own feet; yes, the team still can’t run, can’t stop the run, and is woefully thin at most positions; in other words, yes, they are still the Browns.
