Browns | Johnny Manziel inconsistent

Wed, 21 May 2014 13:07:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said QB Johnny Manziel looked inconsistent in practice Wednesday, May 21. "I just think just like any other rookie that he's inconsistent," Browns coach Mike Pettine said after the second day of the entire team being on the practice field. "I think a lot of it is the mental part of it. [Manziel] is more worrying about getting the formation right, making sure the motion's correct. Then he's got the cadence, and then he's got to worry about where guys are. "Being good mechanically takes a backseat to learning the system first."

Browns | Brian Hoyer looks like starter

Thu, 08 May 2014 10:05:49 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said it would be very difficult for any quarterback from the 2014 NFL Draft class to unseat QB Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback. "There will be competition, but I think it will be very difficult, based on my evaluation of this year's draft class, it will be very difficult for anyone in this draft class to come in and beat [Hoyer] out. I really believe that," Pettine said. "There's that certain it factor he has. Just the way he's attacked his rehab, the way he's attacked learning a new offense."

Browns | Hesitant to start rookie QB

Tue, 29 Apr 2014 17:13:46 -0700

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said he would like to avoid starting a rookie quarterback immediately, even if the club selects a quarterback with the fourth overall pick in the first round.

Fantasy Tip: This news makes it likely that Brian Hoyer will enter Week 1 as the starter, especially since he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from knee surgery. Perhaps Cleveland will wait until later in the draft to take a QB if they plan on him sitting a year to learn.

Mon, 28 Jan 2013 12:31:56 -0800

Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone indicated defensive coordinator Mike Pettine was his top choice for the job and went to meet with Pettine as soon as he got the head coaching position.

That came from an origin like our offensive system. When I was looking at people that grew with that system and kept growing with that system and kept pushing that system, it just led to one person."

Buffalo Bills defensive coordinator Mike Pettine said he is not married to the 3-4 defensive alignment and will use a variety of defenses with the Bills. "I'm not.

"We are a multiple front, attacking, pressure-style defense. We're going to play man coverage, we're going to play zone coverage. What we're going to do defensively is take advantage of what our players do well."
