When news broke that Manziel would be the starter for the Browns game Sunday, reporters were on hand to ask him about shutting up the doubters (like Merril).

"I think Merril Hoge needs to worry about his big neckties more than anything," Manziel said. "But, talking about Merril, he's been that way since, you know, I've decided to come out into the draft, so I guess that's really part of it."
