BEREA, Ohio - The switch at quarterback for the Browns appears inevitable this week. Riley Reiff Jersey .Johnny Football may be about to take over Clevelands offence.After Brian Hoyer played poorly again in Sundays loss to Indianapolis, Browns coach Mike Pettine seemed to be on the verge of giving rookie Johnny Manziel his first NFL start against Cincinnati.I think its natural to lean the other way, given the results, Pettine said Monday. I still want to make sure we do our due diligence and talk to everybody involved.Pettine was unclear on if he had already decided to make the change and promote Manziel, the high-profile backup who came off the bench and replaced a struggling Hoyer in the fourth quarter two weeks ago in Buffalo. Pettine, who stuck with Hoyer last week because he had the Browns in the playoff mix, said he wants to meet with his coaching staff and general manager Ray Farmer before telling both quarterbacks and announcing who will face the Bengals.Pettine said the offensive problems in Sundays game were deeper than the quarterback, but he called the Browns passing attack sub-standard. Pettine cited dropped passes, receivers running wrong routes and execution as factors but that Hoyer has to play better.There are clearly some throws that he missed, but I think it was also exaggerated by how poorly we were in the pass game around him, Pettine said. We always say it, A quarterback is only as good as his supporting cast. When the guys around him play well, Brian will play well. Its rare that theres a quarterback that can transcend his supporting cast.Were in a results business. Weve lost two in a row. We all know what the numbers have been in the pass game. For us to be successful, they need to improve.The Browns (7-6) blew a 14-point lead in the third quarter, when Hoyer and Clevelands offence failed to get a first down in three straight series.Pettine said Manziel would absolutely be ready if called upon to make his first start. Pettine said nothing is giving him pause to go with the first-round pick.Ill fall back on what Ive said all along. We pull together the circumstances that we have, just like we did last week. Who gives us the best chance to win? Pettine said. Thats the decision we go with. To this point, its been Brian.Pettine was peppered with questions about Manziels dedication and if he worked hard enough to warrant the promotion. Since he was drafted, there have been questions about Manziels commitment, with much of the scrutiny stemming from off-the-field behaviour. Manziels penchant for partying and late nights became an issue a few weeks ago when he was involved in a 2:30 a.m. scuffle at a downtown hotel where he lives.On Sunday, Manziel didnt arrive at the stadium until shortly before 11 a.m. for a 1 p.m. kickoff. However, Pettine said Manziel was on time and he had no issues with Manziel attending a Cavaliers game last week when some felt he needed to have his nose in the playbook.Hoyers freefall has been striking. He has thrown just one touchdown pass and eight interceptions in the past four games, a slide that has damaged the Browns hopes of making the playoffs for the first time since 2002.Its crazy how fast things change, said Hoyer, who is in the final year of his contract. I feel like four or five weeks ago were talking about contract talks and now were talking about if Im even going to be staying here. Its the furthest thing from my mind right now.Hoyer doesnt think hes playing any differently. He bemoaned missed opportunities against the Colts, especially on long passes in which he overthrew receivers Josh Gordon and Taylor Gabriel. Hoyer, too, says others need to play better around him.Everybodys got to be able to step up and when youre not being perfect you need one guy to step up and make a big play and we didnt have that yesterday, he said. We didnt have one play that just changed it all for us and when youre having a game where theres some inconsistencies, and not everybodys doing their job on every play, you need that one play or that one player to make a play and we didnt have it yesterday.NOTES: Browns S Tashaun Gipson has begun running and believes hell play again this season after missing two games with a strained knee ligament. Gipson was leading the NFL in interceptions when he got hurt. ... Pettine said Hoyers first interception on Sunday was because TE Jordan Cameron ran the wrong route. ... Pettine expects C Ryan Seymour to start for the second straight week. He made his starting debut against the Colts.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL(A previous version of this story incorrectly said the Browns had a 21-point lead.
