The first time things fall apart he'll whip out his "Johnny Football Magic Bag of Tricks" and surprise someone. Aggies everywhere will say "I told you so!". A few weeks later he'll be utterly destroyed by some DC who understands how to stop him. Shortly after that everyone in the league will have seen how to do it and Manziel becomes a footnote in some teams draft history with a note scribbled next to it reading "Should have known better".

One guy making **** up on the fly doesn't win NFL games for very long. A few weeks, maybe a season if he's on a team with some assets. It ends the same way though. Picks and injuries followed by "I hope you invested that rookie contract money wisely"
Roger Staubach, Fran Tarkenton and Archie Manning do not agree with you.
