Manziel mania: Why the phenomenon?

The calf threw quite well in college as well. Much easier when your receivers aren't smothered a by a corner and they get separation more often than not.

 

Has nothing to do with that. Manziel has a much better arm and mechanics than The Golden Calf of Bristol ever had.

Actually it has everything to do with that, he is going to struggle with accuracy because the receivers don't get the separation and he will not have the luxury of running around until they do like he did at A&M. Yes he has better throwing arm mechanics than The Golden Calf of Bristol but that is a pretty low bar. His lower body and footwork have a long way to go.

It's good thing that if Johnny is good or bad...his BS will be in the NFL section.

Thank God for that.

While speaking on ESPN on Tuesday, Quinn, currently a free agent, said Manziel should chill out with the preseason Vegas excursions. And why?
 
"Cleveland is a blue-collar town," Quinn said, via the National Football Post.
 
Quinn was recently ranked No. 20 (and dead last) in our power rankings of former Browns quarterbacks, and his inability to become the team's franchise quarterback is but one minor reason why the Browns drafted Manziel in the first place. So maybe Quinn isn't the one Manziel should be listening to, anyway.

 

 

Quinn has an opinion lol

Here's the opinion I've formed based on limited information, "Manziel is a spoiled rich white dude who acts like an entitled prick."

Is there counter evidence out there? I didn't like Cam initially either, but watching one video of him interacting with kids won me over.

I'm willing to be proven wrong about Johnny, but nobody has given me information to change my opinion.

Also I'm not even going to speculate on his NFL career. Nobody knows at this point.

Rich? Sure

Spoiled? Yea

White dude? Check

Entitled? No. Unless you have some alternate definition of entitled I've never heard before.

Hanging out with rap stars and spraying champagne at a Vegas club just means he likes to party.

Unless he starts doing illegal stuff, or he plays poorly, I don't get all the hate. I wanted him to fail at A&M last season because he comes off like a DBag.

But his teammates love him, he apparently works very hard off the field and has an incredible competitive drive.

I think you just reinforced my opinion. Smitty was a dbag at times too, but he also literally washed the feet of people less fortunate. Anything like that in Johnny boy's story? I'm looking for reason to like the kid, but partying hard doesn't do it for me.

Manziel is the new "Golden Calf"

 

I like the kid personally but the media hype is out of control.

 

He is an average talent hyped way beyond his threshold

 

 

I feel ya. He's Skip Bayless' new baby!!

Is it true that ESPN analysts get paid every time they mention his name?

 

 

Well, NFLN analysts must be getting paid too! Killing me with this kid.

Like him or not, the kid has done some pretty amazing things on the field.

There is no question that the college game slowed down for him.

Whether or not the NFL game slows down for him is yet to be seen.

I hardly pay attention to media outlets anymore, so the "mania" part is really inconsequential to me.  I personally think he's exciting and I look forward to seeing how he does in the NFL.  I hope it works out for Cleveland.
