The Browns finally made a smart decision regarding their QB play. Brian Hoyer has been abysmal in his last 4 starts, throwing 8 interceptions and only 1 TD. The QB change has been long overdue. Hoyer has underperformed the last 4 games, causing the Browns to go on a 1-3 slide and completely jeopardize playoff chances in the jumbled AFC wildcard race. NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport is also reporting that the Browns were planning to switch to Johnny Manziel if they were out of the playoff hunt, even though at 7-6 they are “technically still in the hunt.”
