- All reports indicate that Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel will be the starter against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Even though Brian Hoyer is 2-0 against Cincinnati, his play has been struggling for the past five weeks. Maybe we will find out more today if Manziel will named, officially. But for sure by Wednesday. I have heard several reasons why Manziel didn't play last week from going to the Cavs game, which turned out to be unfounded speculation, Mike Pettine overruling offensive coordinator Mike Shannahan or consulting with veterans on the team. My team source did indicate that The Johnny Era is about to begin, but also stated we thought the same thing last week too.
- The Browns will face the Cincinatti Benagls this Sunday at home. In a interview with WLW-AM in the "Nati". Bengals head coach Marvin Lewis was quated saying "You gotta defend the offense, you don't defend the player. Particularly a midget" Lewis was referring to Johnny Manziel. If this isn't enough to get Manziel going, I don't know what is. He has been working with a chip on his shoulder the entire year. And if He wants to make a statement,Johnny Manziel will rise to the occasion.
The second move was signing for New York Yankees reliever David Robertson, via free agency. Robertson, 29, was 4-5 with 39 saves and a 3.08 ERA.
- Over the weekend the Tampa Bay Rays signed former Indians bullpen coach Kevin Cash to lead their team as the new skipper. The former catcher played 8 seasons in the MLB and retired in 2011. In 2012 he was named the Indians bullpen coach. Cash also was a finalist to become the Texas Rangers manager in 2014.
