was a close one up to the final play and the Browns even had to bring in
Austin Davis to replace Josh McCown. Should the Browns just use these
final games to evaluate Austin Davis instead of even thinking about
Johnny Manziel? Who should Baltimore Ravens fans and coaches be looking
at as nice pieces for next season? We discuss these things and more.
