RIP

His argument is pretty ridiculous, but there's really no reason to bring up Ferguson or the I can't breathe protests in response. Pretty poor taste here guys.

Hoyer is a game manager at best...

I cannot forget his performance vs Jacksonville earlier this year - laid an egg vs a really bad defense...

Yeah, we should judge every player by one bad game - that makes sense. And Jax D is not that bad btw.

Brady sucked against KC.

Bench him.

I'll say it again since it apparently hasn't been mentioned.

Hoyer's strongest attribute is his play in the 4th quarter. He has 9 starts for the Browns and 5 4th quarter comebacks. That to me is the most thing a QB needs to do. Its very hard to find a quarterback who you can rely on in the 4th quarter. Manziel might be a better QB but I doubt he can perform like that in the 4th quarter.

Hoyer is unbenchable because of those 4th quarter comebacks. You cannot teach what he has. He elevates his play with the game on the line.

Hoyer is a big game, big moment, pressure QB. However, he doesn't have the complete skillset to ever be the guy who will have a monster statistical season. For fantasy football purposes, Hoyer sucks. But I'm sure Pettine loves him.

Hoyer is a very unique mix at QB. I'm not sure I can think of another QB like him.

He's having a season that looks somewhat like Alex Smith's in terms of game management. It's a winning style with few key mistakes.

But his Y/A is 5th in the league, right between Peyton Manning and Roethlisberger.

One other thing: he appears to have the support of the locker an the players when they're on the field.

Brian Hoyer is not a game manager. A game manager is someone that limits his mistakes and can hold the lead if you already have it but if you are down in the 4th quarter, you are screwed.

Hoyer WILL make huge plays in the 4th quarter to put you back in the lead if you are down.

His skill set is limited though.

Alex smith has 100 starts and like 10 4th quarter comebacks. He's a game manager. He very rarely brings you back.

Brian Hoyer has strapped the Browns on his back in his 4th quarter and pulled them out of the fire multiple times this year.

Hoyer earned the starting job with his play on the field. He owns the locker room and has total command over the huddle due to the fact everyone respects him. He busted his butt to come back from an ACL injury months ahead of schedule so in camp AND earlier in the year that was still effecting him.

He came into this season without the NFL's leading receiver and has taken a team with two 5'7 guys and a constantly injured TE to form a semblance of passing game as he has guided his team alone atop the division, the first time that has happened since the Clinton administration.

Per the one bad game he had, asinine to pat yerself on the butt thinking that you made a great point about the Jacksonville game, feh. The team had lost its starting center. That center wasn't just a guy, Alex Mack was a Pro Bowl center but he wasn't just a Pro Bowl center he had never missed a single snap in his entire career so the team didn't invest a ton in a backup center for a guy who was in his prime and hadn't missed a snap so they put in a guard who had never played center before and it was a disaster.

Jon Greco has played great at guard all year but when they moved him to center it severely weakened his RG slot because they put in the horrific Paul McKisten who utterly bombed big time and Greco was soo out of kilt at center that he not only screwed up the exchange at least three times he also snapped the GD ball on fourth and ten accidentally when he was supposed to NOT SNAP the ball because the coaching staff was trying to drive the Jaguars offsides. In addition to Greco's poor and ill-timed snaps he missed assignments all game long.

Those things were not the only issue but with TWO GUYS playing like coiled piles of soft bull crap on the O-Line the Browns bread-and-butter run game never got going at all that game. The slide-zone blocking scheme runs thru the interior of the line where precision timing is the key to making it work but without the blocking working the running game died. No running game, no play action passing game and that is the reason why Hoyer has consistently had one of the highest average per completions in the league today because the running game forces defenses to cheat daring Hoyer to beat em deep and guess what? HE DOES. He's more than a game manager, he's a maestro of the offense. If any moron could run the offense then we'd see other QB with one of the highest average per completions in the game and they'd also consistently have their team alone atop their divisions in mid November but guess what? WE DON'T.

So the loss of Mack had more of an effect on that game than your lame argument that it was all Brian Hoyer's fault of that he's ONLY A GAME MANAGER. Sheesh. Have you EVEN WATCHED A FOOTBALL GAME BEFORE?

Johnny Manziel is the better football player with much more upside than Hoyer.

Hoyer is a backup who is playing well, managing the game, that is led by a run dominant offense with very talented backs and a good o-line...

The Browns have a very difficult decision to make after this year. I hope their football people are paying attention to their practices and the limited snaps Manziel gets....

Actually what I think might happen with Hoyer is if he's given time to play, his skill set might expand. Remember, he tore his ACL a year ago. It takes two years to fully recover from that. His deep ball looked better before the ACL tear. His deep ball might return to form in 2015.

I don't think he will lose the ability to win games in the 4th quarter. That ability never seems to be learned or unlearned. Once a player shows that ability, it stays with them for their career.

Hoyer is playing at a high level right now so his upside is lower than a guy who hasn't really played but the point is to win games and Hoyer gives the Browns the best chance to win games.

I think panicked Manziel owners see the NFL's leading WR from last year coming back on Monday and they know Hoyer is going to look that much better once he is part of the offense so they are making desperate calls for Manziel, sorry ain't gonna happen.

No - I said - "I hope their football people are paying attention in practices" so they make the correct decision on Hoyer...

Their o-line has not been good since mack went down.

Tim Tebow is a better football player with much more upside than Manziel. That is a proven, undisputable fact. The Browns need to trade Manziel and sign Tebow if they want a serious chance at a playoff run.

How many playoff games has Manziel won?? Tim Tebow is a proven playoff producer. That fact simply cannot be ignored.

I did too, shameful performance, his team only scored 7 points losing in an embarrassing fashion.

But because Peyton Manning threw for over 300 yards so he was GREAT.

Oh wait, we're talking Hoyer so he sucked right? Lol.

Some bad WR play and some problems controlling the defensive front, but let's not pretend Hoyer played no part in this mess. He's made some terrible throws.

nobody played well. Hoyer included. Calling for his job is just as stupid now as it was after Jacksonville though.

I agree. He's the starter for the season.

Why do you say that?

I'm from Wisconsin - and know a thing or two about franchise quarterbacks...

We will know much more after a couple of weeks with Gordon back.

I'm not even sure you can evaluate Hoyer on his 2014 at all. He tore his ACL a year ago.

Tom Brady tore an ACL, and the next year his numbers were way down across the board. It was actually one of his worst seasons. He didn't return to form until 2 years after the ACL.

interesting point.

but i don't believe he's going to be cut any slack for that.

he is outplaying Manziel in practice and that is why he's starting.

if they thought Manziel have them a better chance to win, he'd be starting. it's possible that could still happen this season.

but the clamoring for Manziel every time Hoyer has a bad game is ridiculous.

your non franchise qb has this team where it has so infrequently been over the last two decades. With absolutely nothing around him on offense.

But, yeah. Bench him.

Say no more, that settles all conversation.

pretty sure most outside of northeast ohio just scream Manziel. Around here? Not so much. Going to make me pretty happy after we net a couple of w's in a row.

Let's see what Hoyer can do with Josh Gordon back, please.

getting a touch off topic, but Gordon has been allowed to practice during the suspension, yes?
no, just meetings.
ok, thanks I couldn't recall.

so he's not really getting reps with either QB.
