move within a leg of beating Phil Taylor Walking
BEREA, Ohio - Unlike most Clevelanders, Brian Hoyer didnt jump up and down or cheer when he heard the Browns drafted Johnny Manziel. Hoyer shrugged and got ready to fight for his job. "It was almost a sense of relief when he was drafted," he said, "because I knew exactly right then and there what it was going to be." Its going to be a quarterback battle unlike anything Cleveland has seen before. Hoyer, the hometown kid and incumbent starter, and Manziel — the college football superstar with the larger-than-life persona, catchy nickname and Heisman Trophy — were on the field together Wednesday, the second day of organized team activities. With roughly 60 media members lining the fields and focused on the two QBs every move, Hoyer and Manziel went through passing drills and took turns behind centre in a competition expected to last several months. Afterward, Hoyer said he and Manziel are developing a "working relationship" and joked the pair are getting along splendidly. "I was thinking about sending him a birthday card," Hoyer quipped. Hoyer, though, understands what under first-year coach Mike Pettine meant about the quarterback competition being somewhat heated. "I totally get it," he said. "I dont think were in there not being friendly. But when youre gunning for the same job, there is a little bit of an edge to it." The Browns are expecting Manziel to challenge Hoyer, who is coming off right knee surgery. The team has made it clear that Hoyer is the starter and will remain so unless Manziel can beat him out. This is nothing new to Hoyer, who tore his anterior cruciate ligament last season. Hoyer has been battling for a job since he joined the NFL, only this time hes the one that others are gunning for. "It does feel different because as of right now Im the top guy, and before Ive always been coming from behind," Hoyer said. "My mentality has never really changed." Manziel did not speak to reporters after practice, but several Browns players were asked about their famous new teammate, the scrambling magician known as Johnny Football. The former Texas A&M star fell in the first round before Cleveland traded up to take him with the No. 22 overall pick. So far, Manziel has kept his head buried in his playbook. "Johnny has done a good job of being a rookie, keeping his mouth shut," Pro Bowl left tackle Joe Thomas said. "Rookies are supposed to be seen and not heard, which is what hes done." Hoyer waited four seasons for his chance to start. After spending three years in New England as Tom Bradys backup, he made one start in Arizona before he bounced around and signed as a free agent with Cleveland last May. Hoyer was prepared for the Browns to draft a quarterback. He never expected to be handed anything, and not once did he consider asking for a trade. "No, never," he said. "I knew, even going back to last summer, that this was the place that I wanted to be, and it ended up working out and I got back here, and then I got a chance to play. This is my hometown. This is where my familys from. This is where I want to make a difference. Ill never shy away from competition, and its something I had prepared myself for." Hoyer and Manziel each had good moments during the nearly two-hour workout, which Pettine kept open to the media after limiting access for last weeks rookie minicamp. Hoyer, wearing a knee brace but moving without any problems, made the days best pass, completing a long touchdown to wide receiver Conner Vernon. Manziels final pass got batted down, but he showed some of the moves that made him a household name. Still, hes got work to do. "Its just like any other rookie, that hes just inconsistent," Pettine said. "A lot of its the mental part of it. Hes more worrying about getting the formation right, making sure the motions correct and hes got the cadence. Then hes got to worry about where guys are. Once all that stuff becomes second nature a little bit, hell be a lot more comfortable. "He flashed some things that made him kind of who he is, the ability to make plays on his feet." NOTES: Pro Bowl WR Josh Gordon practiced as he awaits a possible league suspension. Gordon declined comment. ... WR Miles Austin said he called former Browns QB Bernie Kosar to ask for permission to wear No. 19. "I never wanted to step on anyones toes," Austin said. "I thought it was the right thing to do." ...

Van Gerwen and Taylor played out a dramatic 6-6 draw on night seven and the pair then shared a lively post-match interview at the SSE Hydro in Glasgow.With Mighty Mike standing a few inches away, Taylor warned his rival: Look into my eyes, Im going to get him. Sky Sports expert Wayne Mardle had joined the pair on stage and believes Van Gerwen was purposefully blocking out this defiant prediction from The Power. Normally in years gone by, the player that is playing Phil hangs on every word he says, because hes been the master. But Michael feels hes better than him. Wayne Mardle Michael, you could clearly see, could not give a hoot what Phil Taylor was saying or doing, said Mardle. He was just disappointed.Hes got a respect for Phil on the board, but once the game was done he just wanted to be out of there. He didnt want to listen to Phil. Michael van Gerwen missed three winning darts as Phil Taylor came from 5-1 behind to draw six all with the Dutchman in the Premier League Normally in years gone by, the player that is playing Phil hangs on every word he says, because hes been the master, but Michael feels hes better than him. Price Boost Smith, Anderson & Lewis alll to win now 13/2 from 11/2 Phil was the one over the moon and actually said a draw was a good result.dddddddddddd Michael didnt feel that way, not at 5-1 up. He would have been absolutely livid and devastated.Taylor overcame an early deficit to claim a draw and Mardle feels the 55-year-old would have gained confidence from this battling result.But the Sky Sports expert insists the story of the match was more about Van Gerwen giving away a point rather than Taylor deservedly earning one. Michael van Gerwen hit the first 170 of the 2016 Premier League to move within a leg of beating Phil Taylor Walking away with the upper hand, it would have been Phil Taylor, because Michael had darts to win and didnt, said Mardle.Michael was the favourite to win and didnt. Being 5-1 up, that would have hurt Michael. But Michael still played well and showed that he has to miss for Phil to get anything out of that game.In my opinion we learned little. Michael should have won and didnt. The only thing that you could say was something to hang onto - was that Phil believes hes still got the game to beat Michael van Gerwen, which is obviously a positive for the world of darts.SKY BET PRICE BOOST: MVG to win, hit the highest checkout & score most 180s now 1/1 (was 8/11)!Watch all of the Premier League action this Thursday night, starting at 7pm on Sky Sports 1.
