Contrary to popular opinion, Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer isn't the team's starter just yet - there still a whole month to go... Head coach Mike Pettine said as much Thursday, saying the talk is nothing but a "knee jerk-reaction" in assuming Hoyer's got the job because he's taken all the first-team reps so far in camp.
