Good morning and happy Monday. One week till the Indians Opening Day and hopefully you’re all not suffering from a ham hangover.
Here’s your new Cleveland Browns quarterback throwing down windmill dunks like it’s his job in some old videos:

Because if these clips taught me anything, it’s that Browns starting quarterbacks who can dunk well always always work out:
We all knew it was coming. After the debacle at First Energy Stadium on Sunday, this is the only choice. Johnny Manziel will make his first career NFL start vs. Andy Dalton and the Bengals. Division rival with the season on the line. Buckle up because this ride is going to have twists and turns and loops and drops and inversions and G-forces.. shit, the train might even fly off the tracks… or it may arrive safely at the station with all it’s riders laughing and smiling. I don’t know what the hell to expect but I know it’s going to be fun.
Is he going to fall flat on his face? Is he going to come out firing bullets, making defenders look foolish and then flashing the money sign in chumps’ faces? I don’t know. No one does. And I think the unknown is what makes this so exciting. We have NO IDEA what to expect Sunday afternoon at First Energy Stadium. We just handed the keys to the franchise (along with a suffering region’s playoff aspirations) to a 22 year old wildcard. Am I nervous? Absolutely. Eager? Yep.
I trust Kyle Shanahan 1000% to put Johnny in the best position to succeed and get him in a rhythm. Whether that be the read option, a couple of designed QB runs, or 9 straight play action rollouts, Shan knows what he’s doing.
Sunday begins a new era in Cleveland. It’s Manziel time. You better buckle the fuck up, keep your hands and feet inside the ride at all times because we’re going for a whirl… hopefully it’s not too late…
