Watch An Actual Little Person Ask Marvin Lewis How He Game Plans For Shorter QBs

After calling Browns starting QB Johnny Manziel "a midget" because he's only six feet tall, Marvin Lewis apologized, admitting "it was offensive to people of short stature and to their families and friends. It was thoughtless on my part to use the word I did, and not excusable, and I greatly regret it.”
But Fox 8 Cleveland wasn't ready to drop it. They sent their in-house little person-correspondent, ‘Lil’ John Rinaldi, to Lewis' press conference this afternoon and asked the Bengals head coach how a quarterback's height factors into his defensive game planning.
"Based on the height difference between Hoyer and Manziel, how has your defensive approach changed for Sunday's game?"
“Hoyer likes to stand tall in the pocket and Manziel likes to move around. What challenges does that present to your defense?”
