Tony Dungy: If I'm committed to winning, I'd take Johnny Manziel
Quote:
...Dungy, the former head coach of the Buccaneers and Colts, says Manziel is not the type of quarterback who will fit into a traditional pro-style offense.

"My two concerns would be, No. 1, if you take him, you've got to build your offense around what he can do," Dungy told The Musers on KTCK AM radio. "Very much what you'd have to do with Tim Tebow. You've gotta make a commitment and say, 'We're going to build around him.' That's not hard to do. You can do that.

"The second concern I'd have is, can he stay healthy?" he said. "We saw it with Robert Griffin -- spectacular athlete, special player. But when you build it on that mobility, you always have the concern: Can he hold up and stay healthy around these big players?"
...

"He is productive, he's a winner," Dungy said. "He's a guy that excites his teammates. He gets the most out of everybody around him. That's what you're looking for in a quarterback. But is he talented enough? Can you win with him? Is he going to make plays in the NFL? Absolutely. Should he be a top-five pick? We'll see how that goes. If I'm committed to winning, I'd take him."
