Josh McCown doesn't take exception to 'game manager' label

To call a mediocre quarterback a 'game manager' is perhaps tantamount to calling a woman 'not ugly' - not exactly pretty, but not exactly a dog either.

Mike Pettine names Josh McCown the favorite for Browns QB

A year ago the Browns left things open to competition between Brian Hoyer and rookie first rounder Johnny Manziel. After a lackluster showing by both, Hoyer defaulted his way into the gig. A year later, Hoyer is gone, but his elder, journeyman placeholder Josh McCown, has been tabbed as the clubhouse leader. At least in the early going according to Browns coach Mike Pettine who wouldn’t...

Browns reportedly interested in Josh McCown

The one constant we have in a Browns offseason is the everlasting search for a franchise quarterback. Or even an average quarterback, for that matter. We have already had suggestions that owner Jimmy Haslam is open to pursuing a new starter, rumors that a new QB could be had via trade up for Marcus Mariota, reports that the Browns have reached out in an attempt to re-sign Brian...
