Actually, the answer to that is easy enough. Pettine has the power to make the decision. The argument goes that if he has the power to make the decision, there must be a reason. And, of course, there is.

But they really don't want to be bothered with all that anyway and if Manziel could somehow just disappear, it would be much more convenient for them. Thus, they are quite content for it to be something that the coaches have seen in practice.
It is only a few of us oddballs who actually believe that Manziel has a chance to be what we hope he might be if given a chance. And it is only us oddballs that really are in favor of Manziel starting the rest of the season, disclaimers to the contrary. In other words, in the opinion of the many, there is an unquestionable consensus that Manziel is a piece of shit.
