Default Browns were going to draft Bridgewater, changed to Manziel with seconds to go...

Longtime Browns analyst Tony Grossi, ESPN Cleveland, says Browns were going to draft Bridgewater and changed with seconds to go...

Quote:
A source told me that the card prepared to be given to Commissioner Roger Goodell for the official announcement in Radio City Music Hall originally had Bridgewater’s name on it. Then with 10 seconds to go, a new card replaced it with the name of Johnny Manziel, as a result of owner Jimmy Haslam’s order.
You can't make this stuff up.

They made the wrong choice, but I think Manziel is going to do fine in Shanny's offense.

Not a big surprise. It was somewhat known that Farmer preferred Bridgewater over the other QB's, but it was very well documented that Haslam had developed a serious crush on Manziel.

Default Re: Browns were going to draft Bridgewater, changed to Manziel with seconds to go...

I heard about this last week:

Quote:
The Browns Spent Over $100,000 On A Study To Find The Best QB

The Browns have long eyed the 2014 draft as the time to finally get a franchise quarterback. According to reports from both CBS Sports and ESPN, they spent over $100,000 to commission a thorough analytical study to determine the best QB available. The study's reported conclusion? Teddy Bridgewater is the way to go.

Full article
Only the Browns would spend a hundred grand to analyze the best QB prospect, have that same QB prospect fall to them in the draft, pick him...and then decide to get the sensational QB at the last second.

I heard a stat that blew me away today about the Browns QBs. Since they came back in the league in 1999, they have had 21 different quarterbacks!

Say Watt you will, but that dumb ass owner of the Browns just set that franchise back again. I almost typed "Floaters" instead of "Browns" because of the very succinct GIF that was posted, ya know, the seat-N-lid GIF?

TB was the $100,000 choice, but no, let's spend more to back up.

GO BROWNIES!

That franchise is such a train wreck. How many head coach candidates turned them down this off season? 7? 8? What should be one of the most coveted jobs in sports and you have people saying "thanks but I'd rather eat my shoe."

He used that "golden voice" to woo him.

Can't wait to see how this plays out.

My guess Manziel busts and the GM gets fired.

Manziel's size or lack of it is a big issue to me. Too small for the nfl.
