Should Manziel or McCown open as starter?

"A league source told Yahoo Sports that Browns coach Mike Pettine "was ready to move on" from Johnny Manziel when Manziel checked himself into rehab following an abysmal rookie season."


Who do you guys wanna see on opening day?

Manziel, and there's really no doubt in my mind. So long as he's learned the playbook, he'll be a good fit for the type of zone-blocking offense the Browns should run. DeFilippo even said there will be 10-15 plays designed to accentuate Manziel's scrambling ability. Even though Pettine has publicly stated it's McCown's job to lose, he's a guy who always wants his players to compete with one another. If Johnny actually has gotten his act together and learned the playbook, his raw talent should land him as the favorite to win the job. It doesn't hurt that Haslam is infatuated with him, either.
