Only Heisman winning QB to ever win a playoff game in 25 years or something like that. Just sayin...

I still laugh at these people who think there is going to be some drastic change in how the QB position is played. Are there better athletes at the QB position now than there ever have been? Yes. Does the same also hold true for every other position? Yes. You still have to be able to win with your arm to be successful.
I debate this with people all the time, and I debate on your side of the argument. I always tell people this stuff is cyclical, it comes around and leaves, but QBs that can throw don't. That's why I love guys that work hard to get the ball to playmakers first before they take off on their own first.

There's not a camera that Manziel doesn't like.
This is not fair. Just because you think a person should sit quietly in a room until draft day doesn't mean that he should.

Because of his name he has the power to change people's lives simply by showing up some place and taking pictures. Just like LBJ was unfairly scrutinized JFF is having the same done.

I see absolutely NOTHING wrong with showing up and taking pictures for charity. I see something wrong with punching your fiancee in the face and dragging her body out of the Casino elevator. I guess that's just me.
