Manzel just impresses the hell out of me on the field. However as much as he impresses me on it, he scares me off it. When asked the other day to name the three people he would like to party wight the most, his answer was tiger woods, Charlie sheen and rob gornowski (sp?).
I don't know if he was just being facetious or if he was serious. Either way shows he still has a lot of growing up to do.
When you or anyone says things like bolded, you lose credit with me. McCarron makes all the throws and is extremely consistently good. You should read the following:
"In American football, a game manager is a quarterback who, despite relatively poor individual statistics such as passing yards and touchdowns, manages to perform well enough to win games. Game managers often benefit from strong defense and rushing offense on their teams. The player is expected to not lose games with interceptions, fumbles, or poor decisions, particularly during important situations near the end of a game.
The New York Times called it a "backhanded compliment". The San Francisco Chronicle wrote, "As consolation ... Quarterbacks are called game managers only if they're winning." The Associated Press opined, "But like any cliche, [game manager is] oversimplified". Former Indianapolis Colts president Bill Polian laughed, "Every quarterback is a game manager, it's what the job is all about." College coach Nick Saban added that "I don't think you can be a good quarterback unless you're a really good game manager."
You would defend your opinion better if you stated a negative McCarron (or any player)has then offered facts to support.
