But How about the fact that he's had double digit carries in 1/2 the games this year with a high of 19 last week...some of those are designed runs...but still too many for a qb..
How about the fact that of his 5 ints, 3 have come in the red zone?
He trusts his legs more than his arm....common thing with running qbs.
And comments like these show how ridiculous you are. Your statements contradict each other as well as the facts and you just dismiss facts that prove you are wrong.
First, I used the statement you made and even expanded the amount to 5- 10 yards and the facts still proved you wrong.
The game I picked WAS his highest rushing amount of the year, so wouldn't that be the best and most extreme example to use? If you statement is true, wouldn't the game he rushed the most have the best chance to prove your right? Too bad the facts prove you wrong.
Second, how can you state "He trusts his legs more than his arm....common thing with running qbs." when the sentence RIGHT BEFORE you said " of his 5 ints, 3 have come in the red zone?" If he trusted his legs more, WOULDN'T THE MAJORITY OF HIS INT'S BE OUTSIDE THE REDZONE? In fact, the problem is he trusts his arm a bit too much, ESPECIALLY in the redzone. If he trusts his legs, wouldn't the majority of his rushes be on 2nd, 3rd or 4th down when they need a 1st down? So why did he only run a small percentage of those plays when he had he ball in his hand?
Does manziel run more than pocket QBs? Yes, of course. He's got speed and vision any offense would be wise to take advantage of that, just like they do with russell wilson, who rushes 25% of his touches, Colin Kaepernic who rushes 17%, and RG3 who rushed 24% last year (prior to the injury).
You wear hater glasses when you watch Manziel play and it distorts your view of what is actually happening and the fact that your opinions are factually wrong.
