Johnny Manziel on SI cover and other memoorable Browns covers

Whether or not Johnny Manziel is a flop, solid starter or future Hall of Famer doesn't matter much right now.

Sports Illustrated's cover featuring Manziel immediately after he was drafted by the Browns with the headline, "Johnny Better Be Good," will be a memorable one.

Other memorable SI covers featuring the Browns include:

- Probably the most famous is the 1995 cover featuring a cartoon illustration of the late Art Modell punching a Browns fan dressed as a dog in the stomach after moving the Browns to Baltimore. 

- Other include the 1999 NFL draft issue featuring Tim Couch, Akili Smith and Top Dawg; Ozzie Newsome after the Browns' dramatic playoff win over the Jets in 1987; and in 1985 after the Browns selected Bernie Kosar in the supplemental draft.
