The Johnny Manziel / Marvin Lewis Feud and Jim Harbaugh Drama

As Johnny Manziel‘s time has officially come to lead the Cleveland Browns, we debate whether the switch from Brian Hoyer to the rookie was actually the right move for Cleveland. While there is no denying Manziel’s talent and future position in Cleveland, Mike Pettine and the Browns are taking a huge risk by putting all of their eggs in the Manziel basket this early.

Marvin Lewis made headlines this week as he referred to upcoming opponent Johnny Manziel as a “midget” as he added more fuel to the fire that is the rivalry between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns. We take a look at the response in the media and around the country stemming from Lewis’s comments and the impact his mouth has had on the Bengals so far this season.

The San Francisco 49ers officially hit rock bottom with a loss last weekend to the Oakland Raiders. The loss not only illuminated the struggles with the 49ers (we are looking at you, Colin Kaepernick), but it also brought forth the inevitable discussion of Jim Harbaugh‘s likely departure from the bay area. We dissect the likely landing spots for Harbaugh if (and when) he chooses to leave San Francisco (or is forced out). In addition to Harbaugh, we take a look at other NFL coaches who are on the hot seat and likely on their way out.
