Exactly. Sumlin's comments on the field right after the incident illustrate his growing frustration with this kid more than anything....
"That wasn't very smart. That's why he didn't go back in the game either. You would hope at this point, you'd learn something from that.
We're still working on that. He wasn't going back in the game no matter what was happening."
The bolded is the phrase that sums it up.....
Yesterday's comments were more of him trying to protect Manziel from any more criticism and to show everyone that he as the coach still has control of the team.
