CLEVELAND - Wearing large headphones to block out the world, Johnny Manziel walked slowly from the Browns locker room, pausing to sign an autograph for a young fan who painted his face for the occassion. Cairo Santos Jersey .Manziel then stopped briefly to talk with friends waiting for him, but the Browns rookie quarterback was hardly in the mood to socialize.There were no money signs being flashed, no discussion about hitting any clubs, nothing but sympathetic pats on the back.It was time for Manziel to go home.His debut was a disaster.Manziel couldnt live up to the enormous hype surrounding his first NFL start as the Cincinnati Bengals rolled to a 30-0 win Sunday over the Browns, who were eliminated from the AFC North race and will likely miss the playoffs for the 12th straight year.Manziel didnt provide a spark. He didnt do much of anything.It was tough, Manziel said. I need to be better. Its tough to come out and there and lay an egg like that and I put that on me. Im not using the rookie excuse. Its not me. I needed to play better.With the Bengals determined not to let him transform into Johnny Football and make big plays, Manziel spent the afternoon running or ducking from trouble. The 21st starting quarterback for Cleveland since 1999, Manziel looked a lot like his 20 predecessors — lost and alone.He completed 10 of 18 passes for 80 yards, threw two interceptions and was sacked three times. He was also constantly taunted by Bengals players, who gleefully flashed Manziels money-rubbing gesture in his face every chance they got.I didnt even notice it, he claimed.It would have been hard for him to miss Bengals linebacker Rey Maualuga, who batted down one of Manziels passes and nearly stuck his hands inside the quarterbacks facemask to make a point. As the week progressed, Cincinnatis defence grew tired of all the talk about Manziel.We didnt want to let him be Johnny Football versus us, said Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap.Manziel never got a chance.The first-place Bengals (9-4-1) scored the first time they had the ball, building momentum the Browns (7-7) could never turn around.Clevelands offence went three-and-out on its first three series, picking up just one first down thanks to a penalty on the Bengals defence.And when the Browns finally got a scoring chance, Manziel squandered it by forcing a pass into the end zone that was intercepted by Bengals cornerback Adam Pacman Jones.Manziel took the blame for the miscue.You cant throw the second one whether youre playing in a Pop Warner league or if youre 6 years old playing in the driveway, you cant throw that ball, Manziel said. Thats 100 per cent on me.Browns coach Mike Pettine, who benched Brian Hoyer in favour of Manziel, didnt mince words when assessing the 22-year-olds performance.He didnt play well — looked like a rookie, played like a rookie, said Pettine, adding hes committed to playing Manziel in Clevelands last two games. I know a lot of it was we didnt play well around him, but he made some obvious mistakes that typically a veteran quarterback wont make.The Browns defence, which had played so well recently, didnt do its part. Cincinnati took the opening kickoff and drove 81 yards for its first score, a 2-yard touchdown run by rookie Jeremy Hill, who backed up his harsh remarks about the Browns following a 24-3 loss last month.Hill hurt the Browns for 148 yards and two touchdowns, and Rex Burkheads 10-yard TD run with 23 seconds left closed the scoring.By then, thousands of Browns fans — many of them in No. 2 jerseys — who had come hoping to see Manziel work his magic and maybe provide a glimpse of a brighter future, had solemnly filed from FirstEnergy Stadium.Same old Browns.Manziel did his best to stay positive afterward, promising improvement.Im not going to be written off forever, he said. Its going to take time and reps. The best quarterbacks to ever play this game have struggled early. Its tough for a young guy to come in and get accustomed to this league.Whats done is done.NOTES: Browns CB Joe Haden will undergo an MRI on Monday for a shoulder injury. He was hurt in the first half and did not return. ... The Browns only ran 38 offensive plays, the fewest in the league this season. ... Cleveland finished 4-4 at home. ... The loss was Clevelands most lopsided since a 41-9 setback to Pittsburgh in the 2010 season finale. ... Newly signed K Garrett Hartley never got on the field.

Allen Bailey Jersey .com) - NFL owners have unanimously approved the sale of the Buffalo Bills. http://www.authoritychiefsshop.com/laure...rsey-c-33/ .Y. - Through three quarters, the Brooklyn Nets could not shake the NBAs worst team.DENVER -- Despite another last-place finish, the Colorado Rockies liked what manager Walt Weiss did with a banged-up team in his rookie season as manager and rewarded him with a three-year contract on Tuesday. Weiss went 74-88, a 10-game improvement over the previous season, after leaving his head coaching job at Regis Jesuit High School last fall. He managed on a one-year deal with the Rockies in 2013 after Jim Tracy stepped down following a 64-98 season in 2012. Now, there are no more questions about his security. "I think it comes down to stability -- stability for a club, from the players perspective, that a manger is going to be around," Weiss said. "They know the manager is going to be there and hes the guy running the club. I think theres something to be said for that." Weiss said hes close to filling the hitting instructors job that Dante Bichette left for family reasons and is leaning toward following the trend in baseball and use two coaches in that role. He also said the rest of his coaching staff will return in 2014. Colorado hung around and wass just 4 1/2 games behind Los Angeles at the All-Star break before the Dodgers and Rockies went in different directions. Marcus Peters Jersey. After a free-fall, they went 22-24 over their final 46 games, giving them hope for a turnaround next season behind starting pitchers Jorge De La Rosa, Jhoulys Chacin and Tyler Chatwood and the core of Troy Tulowitzki, Carlos Gonzalez, Dexter Fowler, Michael Cuddyer, Nolan Arenado and Wilin Rosario. "I like the way our guys competed down the stretch, when we looked like we were out of it. Our guys still played really hard ... playing to the last out of every game, the last out of the season. For me, that was a bright spot," Weiss said. He said the Rockies need to play better on the road next season. They won just 29 games away from Coors Field. A former All-Star shortstop, Weiss spent 14 seasons in the major leagues, including four seasons with the Rockies in the 1990s. He also spent seven seasons, from 2002-08, as a special assistant to the general manager with the Rockies.
