Johnny Manziel will be starting his first NFL game at FirstEnergy Stadium on Sunday against the Cincinnati Bengals

He's barely played this season, but Manziel is still one of the hottest names in the league and his jersey has been a top-ten seller all season.

"It says people love him. It says people want him to play," said Browns fan Danny Wheeler.
 
At Cardboard Heroes Sports Stuff in Great Northern Mall, you can find Browns gear for fans of all ages. The best Manziel jerseys are going for $100. Brian Hoyer's jersey is selling for $100 too, but there are more Manziel jerseys available in the store. 

Fans at the mall are pumped to see Johnny Football play.
 
"I think it'll get the fans back on their feet," said Marie Kerg. "A fresh start with a fresh quarterback. I think he's ready."
 
"We're just looking for a winner," Wheeler added. "We just hope this isn't another bust."
 
Browns fans know the list of former quarterbacks in Cleveland is long. At Brokaw Advertising in downtown Cleveland, they have all the names on display on a mannequin in their window. Manziel's name is the 21st since Tim Couch started for the Browns in 1999.
 
"We hope that one of their quarterbacks sticks for a good, long time, so that we can finally take this down," said Mark McKenzie with Brokaw Advertising.
