Default Re: Manziel

The fact that Sumlin won't let him talk to the press is just adding to the mystique right now.

ESPN wanted an interview with him for their segment this week, and Sumlin said no.

I like the policy, keep him protected as much as possible.

Though Russel Wilson seems to be doing pretty good right now. Though Wilson even going to his last year in Wisc was a pretty polished passer.

His evolution as a QB is going to be in his understanding of passing lanes and running lanes in college. Right now the two teams that totally bottled him up stuck to their run lanes and didn't give him that run outlet that right now is an essential part of his game.
Not to take away anything from your post, but the three main things Manziel has to do over the next two years or so is
  1. Win. If he's not on a winning club, nothing else matters
  2. Develop as a passer
  3. Develop as a leader

The last one is pretty important.. I don't know. But he has to be able to lead his team when he's on the field. There are no excuses for the QB. He's got to learn to exude confidence. He's got to learn how to handle the media.

We've seen some talented QBs come out of the NCAA only to fail at the highest level, because they have no leadership skills.

Leadership is the last thing I would concern myself with when it comes to Manziel. Accuracy should improve in time as he develops better core strength (still see him tossed around like a rag doll by big huge linemen). Maybe not as naturally gifted as Mariota (who also needs improved core strength) but must keep in mind these KIDS are redshirt freshman.

This kid is really fun to watch. He has really helped the Aggies to earn some respect in their new SEC conference early on. Good for Sumlin. That was a quick turnaround, and Manziel should be a dynamic player in college for at least two more years.
