Buccaneers defensive tackle takes a shot at Johnny Manziel; Praises Hoyer

manzielBrian Hoyer has led the Cleveland Browns to a pretty good start, and he was praised for his play and the way he handled his situation in Cleveland by his opponent Gerald McCoy. McCoy recently received a huge pay check and boy did he take a shot at the Browns first round pick when he talked to the media today. 

“First off, I want to say from me how much respect I have for Brian Hoyer and what he represents on the field,’’ McCoy said. “I don’t know who he is or what type of guy he is off the field. He’s in the starting role for a reason. He rightfully earned that role through all the circus that was going on in Cleveland.

“He never wavered. He kept his mouth shut, and he just performed, and he’s the guy who should be starting. He’s led them the way he should. He’s an athletic guy, smart, can make all the throws and is a huge reason why they are where they’re at. Starting with him, we’ve got to make sure we neutralize him.’’

Manziel is not happy that he is sitting, but he would likely turn into the player most defensive players would love to hit.  I could see him becoming a target when he does take over. What do you think?
