BEREA, Ohio– Browns head coach Mike Pettine had positive things to say about quarterback Johnny Manziel after the team’s 30-13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Cleveland was first on the board with a touchdown on the their opening drive. But Seattle countered with 14 unanswered points. The Browns’ record is now 3-11.
“Overall, Johnny did some very positive things,” Pettine said. “Lots of positives and lots of learning.”
Pettine said Manziel handled the noise and pressure of playing in Seattle well. The quarterback only had 100 yards passing after the first drive.
“I’m not going to put that on him,” Pettine said. He said there were breakdowns in protection and dropped balls that also contributed.
The second-year head coach said a few plays during the game will end up on the blooper reel, including the facemask call against Tramon Williams to end the half.
“There are a handful of plays a game that the other team executes and we don’t.”
Pettine said John Greco is out for the season with a MCL injury and Cam Erving with likely get the start.
