  1. And my god, please note: those aren't anywhere near the only ones. Any little piss-ant QB with a bit of athleticism on either a spread/run-n-shoot O, or an option O would have done. A&M just did a bit of both. Johnny's passing numbers were entirely due to system and surrounding talent, and his running numbers were entirely due to system. No competent NFL GM (read: nobody but the dumb-### Browns, and only then upon mandate from the owner) thought of him as a real NFL talent. And only yahoos desperate to cling to college memories still carry a torch for him. Time to let go. Let go of Te
  2. Because Johnny, by definition, is different than every other QB in the history of the game. This is my point. That is what makes his scenario so interesting. There has never been another QB like him. You can compare Wilson to Manziel, but the fact is that Wilson couldn't carry Johnny's jockstrap in college. Yeah. No. He's a slightly less athletic Tommy Frazier, Turner Gill, Eric Crouch, or Scott Frost, if Nebraska had run a spread. All great pros, by the way.
  3. Really a stretch to say it is much of a significance either way.The two are eerily similar across the board in body types. Russ Johnny Football Brady ]Eli Draw your own conclusions. The moral for me, if you are a pocket passer, it is OK to look like the before picture in a Charles Atlas ad (does Eli have the current active longest consecutive games played streak?). If you are a running QB, itt is better to be built like a brick ####house like Wilson (or Kaepernick, or have near DE-size like Cam). Manziel has a Brady/Manning build, but a Wilson game, an ominous combination. If he evolves int

  5. Only one of these three things is even remotely correct.The hideous truth is that when you're a 1st round pick who's spent two years in camp with the likes of Hoyer and McCown, you've ALREADY had a million times the chance most backups ever get. That this far along, he not only can't command the starter's role, but remains "firmly" behind (the coach's own words) merely serves as vindication of all the negative opinions. When you can't even give aging career backups a run for their money, it's time to be written off. Talk about seeing what you want to see. Amazing how desperately some will cl
  6. It's more like barely eke out existence as a clipboard toter or bust. There's no potential for boom with that body and skillset. I actually would have agreed with you had Wilson not done what he has done at his size and skill set. Manziel does not have to be Wilson (one of top young QB's in the game) and still be a decent starter if he can learn to play like him. Manziel would have been 10-6 on that Seahawks team. A real QB like Luck or Rodgers would have gone undefeated.

  8. No it is not laughable.Manziel in the SEC had 2 of the most ridiculous statistical years accumulated as a QB. He ran for 1400 yards and 21 td's as a freshman. He also threw for 3700 yards with 26 tds and only 9 ints in that freshman year. He followed up that freshman year with 759 yards rushing and 9 tds to go along with 4114 yards throwing with 37 tds and 13 ints. His college resume is ridiculous. Whether his game translates to the pros is for a sure a huge question mark, but as a college player he should be in the conversation as one of the best 2 year runs in the history of the NCAA. Tebo

  10. I don't really even think all that highly of Wilson, but I don't see anything wrong with this sentiment. It's not really comparing Wilson to Manning as a complete QB. Just the way they seem to think about the game as they play, and how it seems to help them make intelligent choices regularly. That's the number one thing you need to be a good game manager, and Wilson's one of the two or three premier game manager QB's in the NFL right now.
  11. Dude is one of the greatest college football players... ever. I would ask what it takes to earn respect? Sounds more like a moral judgement than a grading of his resume. Nobody cares how many TD's Al Bundy scored in that high school game. Why? It was little league ball. Just like college. You don't get respect as a pro football player by being good in college any more than you earn it in the business world by getting an A in Accounting 101. You enter professional life with a zero in the respect column either way, and start earning it from day one...or you don't. People aren't setting the
  12. This is not a mark in Manziel's favor. It means there's little to no upside in his arm strength, which is currently so unusably poor at the NFL level that he was literally laughed off the field by opponents and fans alike. Which goes once again to the point: Johnny can turn his life around and become a better person, and indeed we should all hope he does, but there's no rehab for small and weak-armed. The guys Manziel can point to who have similar physical attributes but are successful are all guys who started taking the maximizing of those skills seriously when they were adolescents. (Wil
