Listen carefully to Mike Pettine’s words — and subtle messages

BEREA, Ohio — Mike Pettine is thoughtful and honest with his answers to the media. He also, it seems, talks to his players while he’s talking to us.

He can send a message without sending a message. He’ll air out an open-for-interpretation quote like a lob into triple coverage.

This week, there are two examples of what I’m talking about that illustrate Pettine’s media savvy. Both involve the offense — specifically, running back Ben Tate and quarterback Johnny Manziel.
