Cleveland Browns In Week 14
Well, Manziel has been taken out of timeout and assuming no news of him going out and clubbing breaks in the next 24 hours, he will start against the 49ers.

There have been countless rumors of Manziel wanting to leave the Browns franchise and perhaps go to the Dallas Cowboys and play for perhaps his number one fan Cowboys’ owner Jerry Jones. However, this game along with the last three will be really beneficial to Manziel and the Browns regardless of whether he gets traded to Dallas or remain with the Browns.
He now has a legitimate chance to show if he has what it takes to become a franchise quarterback in the NFL, which he has said has been his goal all along. What better team to do that against then the demoralized and unimpressive 49ers? So far this year, the 49ers are 28th in the NFL in total yards given up per game (only one spot ahead of Cleveland), while also giving up a total of 269.9 passing yards per game, which is 27th in the NFL.
If Manziel is great, he can either further develop his career with the Browns or go to another team in what would be a valuable trade for the Browns. If not, the Browns and Manziel can breakup, go their separate ways, and the Browns will know what to do in the upcoming draft.
This is about as easy as it will get for Manziel. If there was ever a time for him to have a breakout game to suck teams (including our very own Browns) back in, now is the time.
