Cleveland Browns players are so frustrated that they’re running to gossips sites to voice their displeasure.

Browns head coach Mike Pettine made a controversial decision to start Josh McCown at quarterback over Johnny Manziel in Week 3, even after Manziel had played well in consecutive weeks.

After losing to the Oakland Raiders, 27-20, some Browns players are reportedly fed up with the situation, according to TMZ Sports.

"I love both Johnny and Josh but its f–ked up when you have Johnny come in and play well and [he] has proven to the team that he is the right person for the job. It’s frustrating to him and us when you sit a player down when he is playing well. Coach has got to understand you are messing up the chemistry and timing with players, and its f–ked up."

Another anonymous Browns player believes Pettine lacks any confidence in the play making Manziel.

“The team plays better when [Manziel] is in the game. I play better when he plays. You can’t get better unless you play. We won when he played, and coach has got to trust him like he trusts Josh.”

They players shouldn’t have went to TMZ, but it makes perfect sense. Cleveland spent a first-round pick on Manziel, and may want to see if he can play before using another first round pick on a signal caller in the next NFL draft.

Josh McCown is a journeyman, and has hit his ceiling as a player.
