I can't think of any other QB that did as much of a 180 from his college career to his pro career as Warren Moon. So, to me anyway, I find it odd that Moon would say Manziel is the next Tebow.
IMO his comparison is strictly based on his doubts that Manziel's ability to make the type of plays he made in college with his feet will transfer over to the NFL and has nothing to do with comparing their throwing ability. If that's the case then it's a fair comparison if you have the doubts Moon does. Since Manziel is undersized he needs to run a much better time at his pro day.
