From the department of sales should have happened six weeks ago, Brian Hoyer jerseys have finally started outselling Johnny Manziel jerseys nationwide.
This raises the important question: Who’s still buying Johnny Manziel jerseys? I can see why people bought them from May through August, when the rookie was a celebrated draft pick still in contention to become Browns’ starter. I can see why people will buy them in the future, when the celebrated quarterback eventually gets a chance to play in the league. But right now? Once it became clear Manziel was going to ride the bench to start the season, then became figuratively glued to that seat after Hoyer’s hot start put the Browns in playoff contention, who’s still shelling out money for Johnny Football gear?
