  1. Both the Steelers and FF owners should take a lesson from the Josh Gordon situation here. If Bryant does get clean and play again, great, but look at that as a bonus. He shouldn't be counted on again, period. Another talented 25 year old millionaire (though just barely in Bryant's case) who doesn't just really care too much about football at the end of the day.
  2. He had an extended stay in rehab less than a year ago -- whatever he was or wasn't in there for he probably shouldn't be dabbling in any recreational substances at all at this point. The underlying issues leading to the substance abuse are certainly still there, and swapping out coke for booze (or whatever he was / is using) doesn't exactly make anything better. It's certainly a considerable red flag moving forward.
  3. I also think that he's likely to struggle with getting consistent targets -- Brown, Bell, and Miller will be ahead in the pecking order, and last year's fantasy points per target is completely unsustainable. I still like the guy, but the FF WR1 talk up thread seems like a huge reach IMO.
  4. Didn't we just see? Are you implying that he's going to do great things NEXT game? How do you envision this working? So far, he hasn't shown anything to prove he's better than back-up material. This "see what they have" stuff has been tried 5-6 times already. Yeah, but you KNOW McCown isn't the long term answer. Manziel, ehhh... If they go back to McCown, then you're still sitting on a "probably not, but maybe" in Manziel a year from now. I personally wouldn't have invested a 1st rounder in the guy, but that horse already left the barn. Might as well see what Maziel can do with all of the

  6. This I agree. He might be just as dumb as Gordon and Blackmon, but like them, he's money when he's on the field. Chances are good that he'll be on the field from weeks 5-16 of this season. I can't wait.I'm a Steelers' fan and hope you guys are right, but top 10 is an awfully high bar to set considering the amount of targets Brown and Bell (and to a lesser extent Miller) command.
  7. I really don't think this is that outlandish of a comment.I would rather have Mariota but it is not as if Manziel is that far behind in terms of becoming a viable starting QB. Why is this so comical?It isn't but this way they don't have to come up with reason other then Johnny is a DB. Nobody with the faintest clue about professional football could possibly believe Manziel has a snowball's chance in hell to cut it as a backup QB, much less a starter, much, much less a "viable" one. Guy has zero NFL QB skills or physical attributes. Zero. He's small, stupid, weak-armed, undisciplined,
  8. Even if Manziel gets his stuff together 100%, he's still HUGELY raw. He's going to need an absolute ton of work on staying in the pocket and going through progressions in a pro offense. If he looks to break the pocket and run as much in the NFL as he did in college he's going to get killed. I'm not sure that Cleveland is a place where he will get the intensive coaching on the fundamentals that he's going to need. Without that, he'll just be a gimmick QB, albeit one that makes some ridiculous splash plays that get play on Sportscenter. That said, IMO he does have the arm, athleticism, insti
  9. Good point.Although Pettine could possibly buy more time if Manziel starts to show improvement and look like a starting NFL qb. He could use the I am developing our qb for the future ala Teddy Bridgewater and Derek Carr and we will start winning more games as he gets better. The Browns won some last year. I don't think this unit is afforded a 4 win season of forgiveness. I would guess they want playoffs or at least playoff race in DecemberAgreed. Pettine needs to make the playoffs, or be very close, or he's likely gone. Not saying it's a smart way to run things, but that's evidently how H
  10. I don't think Pettine is going to be super worried about "developing" Manziel. Given Haslem's impatience with coaches, he probably just plays the best guy and tries to win and keep his job.
  11. He's probably too much of a spoiled immature doosh to put in the work necessary to succeed at the NFL level and lead a professional team IMO. Flat out saying he doesn't have NFL-level physical tools is dumb, though. As is calling his career done based on 35 pass attempts.
  12. Sweet Jesus we have come full circle again. In what sense? Manziel was awful as a rookie. He was immature and looked out of place. I get there is some hate for the way he carried himself and how he thought things would come easy to him even in the NFL. He only appeared in 3 games and struggled mightily as he was no where near ready to be a competent NFL qb last year.This however is a new year. The Browns have not replaced Manziel. They still have a stop gap veteran in front of him. There is an opportunity for Manziel to become the starter in Cleveland at this point. Whether he grasps that opp
  13. Did you watch him in college at all? Look, he started two games last year and played a little in two more. He sucked. But so do a lot of rookies in their first few games. Plus, he clearly wasn't ready at all to be a professional -- he checked himself into freakin rehab after the season.I'm not a Manziel fan at all. I hate the Browns, and laughed at them for picking him. I think he's pretty likely to end up busting for a number of reasons. But again, "lacks the physical talent to be even a marginal QB" is just wrong. Based on last year he is not even a backup qb in this league....what did you
