    Strike one? The Browns think they can control Johnny Football mania, which pretty much explains why this franchise is the NFL's longest-running joke. When The Post tried this week to get a credential to cover Johnny Manziel's first rookie minicamp this weekend in Cleveland, the Browns replied that the national media was being barred because the team wants to keep a "tight grip" on its new quarterback and keep the attention from turning into a frenzy. A team spokesman said the Browns -- most likely, new coach Mike Pettine, a former Jets assistant -- had watched how the Tim Tebow situation was handled by the Jets and wanted to avoid a repeat. Good luck with that. The Browns will be able to tame Manziel Mania about as well as Prohibition kept people from drinking alcohol.

    Can't blame them for trying. Imagine if the Rams attempted the same thing with Michael Sam...oh, the outrage!!
