The Browns first round draft pick Johnny Football has been the talk of training camp. The talented signal caller had an outstanding career as the starting quarterback with Texas A&M in college. He is battling Brian Hoyer for the starting position. Hoyer gets the start on Saturday and Johnny Manziel will enter the game as the backup in this week one exhibition. The plans are to have Johnny Football to start in week two of the preseason in a Monday Night road game at Washington. Brian Hoyer played just three games for Cleveland a season ago before being sidelined for the rest of the season due to a knee injury. In three games Hoyer completed 59% of his three with five touchdowns and three picks with a quarterback rating of 82.6. Competing for the Browns third string spot are Connor Shaw and Tyler Thigpen. Cleveland added an important piece to their backfield as the club added former Houston Texans running back Ben Tate. The team has depth in the backfield with Isaiah Crowell and Edwin Baker. The Detroit Lions underwent a coaching change in 2014 as former Indianapolis head coach Jim Caldwell takes over as head coach after the Lions missed the playoffs the past two seasons compiling an overall record of 11-21. Discipline has been an issue with the Lions in recent seasons. Matthew Stafford lines up as the starting quarterback for Detroit and he should see limited action on Saturday. The backups to Stafford are Dan Orlovsky, Kellen Moore and James Franklin.
