Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine knows that there will be a big time competition between his two quarterbacks going into camp and he doesn’t want Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel to be warm and fuzzy during the year.
“We don’t want guys who are going to be warm and fuzzy,” he said at the Akron Browns Backers banquet at Tangier Restaurant. “They’re fighting for a job. It’s somebody you’re going to be working with. It’s a unique situation where you’re competitive, you want that job. It’s not going to be this warm and fuzzy (thing). That to me is how you want your quarterback to be.”
There is only one starting quarterback on the roster. Both players will be gunning for that job and both will do whatever they can in order to win that position. They will be looking to outperform each other during training camp and someone will leave victorious.
Pettine is hoping that the competition will bring the best out of both of them and that they will be able to find their starting quarterback at the end of the competition. After the battle, then they can go back to being warm and fuzzy… or not.
