Comments Off on Browns Mike Pettine Says Team Could Use 2-QB System

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine seems to have no clue about what he wants to do with rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel.

After handing the starting quarterback job over to Brian Hoyer, Pettine insist there still could be a package available to help utilize Manziel’s skills.

Browns coach Mike Pettine told Ross Tucker on SiriusXM NFL Radio that a “Manziel package” is “on the table.”

“We could potentially look at a two-quarterback system down the road,” Pettine said.

It conflicts with everything Pettine has said about Hoyer not having to look over his shoulder.  Pettine says he likes the idea of teams having to prepare for both quarterbacks.

I’ve seen that give defenses some trouble,” Pettine said. in July. “I think there’s positives and negatives to it. You’re taking your starter off the field. You have his rhythm and continuity to take into account, but at the same time defensively you’re now forcing a team to basically come up with two game plans. I mean, there are pluses and minuses to it.”
