Here's a nice quote that I can get behind:
Sooooo, gambling legally in a casino is something he should hide? Being out on Halloween in public is something he should hide? Should he be tweeting pics of himself at home reading his Bible instead? C'mon, this is silly, either he's doing something wrong or he isn't. Aside from the arrest, I haven't seen anything to cause concern.

Quote:
What other college QBs are doing is irrelevant because they aren't as famous as he is. When you pose with strippers, its going to make headlines. Remember when Gronk posed with the playboy playmate and ended up getting scolded by the Pats?
Whoa whoa whoa, strippers? Now this is news to me. Feel free to show me anything saying those Halloween chicks are strippers and not students. Comparing that to taking pics with a professional pornstar wearing your team's jersey is pretty low. Not really in the same ballpark.

Quote:
I don't make excuses for famous people by age. If an 18 year old can be expected to have the maturity to volunteer and die for his country, expecting a 20 year old to possess some basic maturity isn't asking a lot.
Where am I making excuses? I'm saying he's fine to do whatever the hell he wants as long as it's legal. If he's getting money from boosters and gambling with it, then yeah that would be an issue, but I haven't seen anything like that. Feel free to fill me in on his other crimes or NCAA violations if you got anything.

Quote:
I have no horse in this race. I'm not a longhorn or an Aggie. I legitimately like the kid. I just think defending him in the media with such vigor is a little over the top. He's famous. He knows he's famous. He likes the fame. And he is going to have to deal with the media reaction to the controversies that are going to surround him as long as he keeps putting himself in the spotlight.

Just simple personal responsibility. If he wants even a crack at an NFL career he needs to realize that character AND perceived character is something pro teams care about.
That last line sounds like something Kubiak would say... I'm personally not concerned about it, and I wouldn't knock a guy for having fun and enjoying the spotlight. Cam Newton got arrested for theft and kicked off the Florida football team, yet still went #1 overall, so I kind of doubt Manziel's flaws will hurt him in the grand scheme of things. Talent is more important than twitter pics.
