No reason to doubt Josh McCown will start, not Johnny Manziel

BEREA, Ohio — Browns coach Mike Pettine was noncommital about Josh McCown starting on Sunday against Arizona, but everything the Browns have said and done all week has indicated he will start.

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported that McCown will play and start, but the Browns are holding off on any commitment.

Coaches sometimes believe waiting to announce a starter might provide a competitive advantage. Pettine also might really want to make sure McCown is healthy before committing to him publicly.

Odds are that the team sees keeping the identity of the starter a secret as a competitive advantage.

In this case, there’s enough evidence from the past week to understand the Browns want McCown to play, and will play him if he is at all capable.

The progression has been logical. From rest on Monday and Tuesday to held out on Wednesday to limited on Thursday to (in McCown’s words) throwing the ball around on Friday. The next logical step: Starting on Sunday. Consider the events of the week:

On Monday, Pettine had an incredulous tone when he said: “If our starting quarterback is able to play, will we play him? Yes.”

On Wednesday, Pettine broke every coaching rule in the book by saying McCown didn’t need to miss practice to start. “The good thing about it is we are carrying over a lot of concept stuff that he has practiced and stuff that he’s thrown in games,” Pettine said. “As far as getting those actual reps in practice, at this point, it is important, but I wouldn’t put a ton of stock into it.”

On Thursday, offensive coordinator John DeFilippo concurred. “If it were a second- or third-year quarterback without the reps, I would be a little bit more concerned,” DeFilippo said. “But Josh has had almost all the [first-team] reps since training camp, so that doesn’t concern me too much.”

It’s not surprising that Pettine would hedge a bit on Friday, given the modern coach’s desire for any competitive advantage he can find.

But if McCown isn’t the starting quarterback Sunday, it would be a shock.

The Detroit Lions and Their NFL Jerseys History

by admin .

If you love the Detroit Lions and their colorful history, then you’re really going to like this terrific two-minute video by NFL Jerseys which chronicles the uniform color history of the Lions franchise from its early years in the 1930’s to the modern era and magnificent Ford Field. Narrated by Scott Graham, one of the great voices of NFL Jerseys, this video features three uniform history experts:

The Detroit Lions and Their NFL Jerseys History


1. Joe Horrigan, Vice President of Communications and Exhibits at the Pro Football Hall of Fame where he has worked for more than 35 years

2. Michael MacCambridge, author of “America’s Game: The Epic Story of How Pro Football Captured A Nation” and many other books as well as editor of the massive “ESPN College Football Encyclopedia”

3. Scott Sillcox, sports uniform historian, owner and founder of Maple Leaf Productions and Heritage Sports Art.

My name is Scott Sillcox and for 15+ years I owned Maple Leaf Productions. We were a licensee of the NFL, MLB, NHL and through a partner company, the NCAA, and we created and sold a number of products, the most famous of which were our horizontal posters. The Lions’ poster showed the evolution of the team uniform from the early days to the modern era – click here to see the poster or see the poster below. Our other products – all of which celebrated the history of team uniforms – included fridge magnets, clocks, playing cards and FanFrames.

If you are a huge Lions fan, you might be interested to know that the 16 pieces of original artwork used to create the Lions’ poster shown above – the actual hand-painted watercolor paintings – are available for sale at Heritage Sports Art. When you watch this NFL Jerseys video, you will see 4 of the 16 actual painted uniforms – and you can actually own that original artwork – how cool is that!

Please note: Some of the 16 pieces of original Lions uniform artwork may have already been sold to other avid Lions fans, so you may want to act quickly if you would like to own what we lovingly, and honestly, call a “somewhat famous” piece of art. A lot of sports art is terrific, as is our art, but not many pieces of sports art have been reproduced thousands of times and can be found hanging in people’s homes and offices across North America – to me that’s what makes buying and owning this original art so cool.

Each piece of original artwork is beautifully framed in a tasteful and attractive way, and the engraved plate contained within the framed piece tells the story of that particular piece of original art and how it has been reproduced in thousands of posters and other products sold across North America. These framed pieces make a great gift – birthday gift, anniversary gift, retirement gift – and considering that you are buying original artwork that is also somewhat famous with a fun story behind it, they really are very reasonably priced.
