Johnny Manziel Fires Back At ESPN's Merril Hoge In Hilarious Fashion

Johnny Manziel will make his third career NFL start on Sunday, when the Cleveland Browns host the Tennessee Titans. 

Manziel, starting in place of Josh McCown, who has yet to be cleared from the league's concussion protocol, is 0-2 as the Browns' starting quarterback. He played last week in the team's opener against the New York Jets, completing 13 of 24 passes for 182 yards, one touchdown and one interception. After that game, ESPN NFL analyst Merril Hoge, a long-time critic of Manziel, called for the Browns to cut the quarterback

The former Texas A&M star fired back at Hoge while talking to reporters today.

Hoge's neckties are abnormally large.
