Cleveland's coaching simply doesn't agree -- at least not yet.
"We said all along, Josh McCown started the season as our number one quarterback. He's been out due to injury and (he's) potentially coming back," Pettine said. "I get the call for a 'why not' (on Manziel) but we're tasked as coaches to put the roster out there that's going to give us the best opportunity to win."
Pettine called it a "disservice to other players just to play a young guy to see what he has," but acknowledged that "as the year goes on, those circumstances can change, but we'll see."
It remains to be seen of McCown will be healthy enough to play this week against the Steelers.
