no rights issues with public presser, so we could post the full Q&A grouped in posts by topic?

Easily to most introspective view we have on our new HC. Your call.

ORLANDO At this point, it appears Johnny Manziel will not work out for the Houston Texans following his Thursday pro day at Texas A&M.

That could prove an interesting turn -- and potentially be a turnoff to the Texans considering how much first-year coach Bill O'Brien prizes working out quarterbacks individually.

Asked if Manziel would work out for the Texans afterward, O'Brien said during Tuesday's AFC coaches' breakfast, "I don't think so. He's got his Johnny Day.''

He's a dumbazz if he doesn't. Or maybe he's being smart.

Can you imagine the pressure he'd have on him if the Texans drafted him? The Keenum Kraze on steroids, amphetamines and Red Bull at the same time.

Maybe he, or his team, recognizes that and would actually prefer a slightly less stressfull environment. Cleveland and Jax are used to having top 10 QB picks fall on their face.

How did you get "in depth" out of that? That was a whole bunch of everything we've heard already. I didn't get anything new out of that at all.

"Everybody has good and bad points. We're in the process. These guys are going to compete in camp. Tough. Smart. Adaptable." Same old same old to me.

I interpreted it differently. I got the impression that it wasn't F'knFootball's call.

I took it as he didn't get an invite.

Really? That would be really odd.

JF has more to lose that just about any other QB, regardless of hwere you rank him.

He could be #1 or #101. JF's decision to not do personal work outs for the Texans only increase that thought. OB wil NOT be upstaged by his QB.

My point is: How do you know it was F'kn Football's call?

Still sounds to me like he didn't get an invitation.

OTOH, that's been the Texans' MO.

WTF really knows?

I believe the Texans are having private workouts with Bortles and TB.

Also, why would the Texans be turned off if they didn't ask?

If it is correct they are having private workouts with the other two and didn't ask Manziel I wouldn't think that bodes well for him anyway.

That was the basis of my "Texans' MO" statement. Sorry if it was not portrayed succinctly.

Manziel doesn't want to play for the texans? Or did he get wind he's not near the too of our list? Or just out of touch with reality?

Others may not agree, but I strongly feel that OB is not one to take kindly to the "johnny football" aura...........and, despite Manziel stating that he is leaving "johnny football" behind...........he is still actively pursuing the name's copyright. At least Tebow and Kaepernick waited until they got into the NFL and produced "something." Manziel will come into the league by his own choosing with that monicker.........and will be sooner than later carried off the field on a cart, covered by a hand-made shroud that carries his image captioned with big letters spelling out "J-O-H-N-N-Y F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L L-I-E-S H-E-R-E." Of course, JMHO.

Johnny Day ? Clearly a shot of sarcasm by O'brien. That's the worst kind of timing for Manziel to get on OB's shix-list right now.

Copyright = original work of authorship fixed in a tangible medium of expression (i.e., literature, art, music). It's pretty straightforward and vests automatically, no lawyer required. There can be no copyright in "Johnny Football" because it is not an "original work of authorship."


Trademark= identifier of the source of goods (i.e., word, phrase, symbol, design). This is much more nuanced than copyright.

The story of the "Johnny Football" trademark is fairly interesting:
And his trying to control the "Johnny Football" trademark does not make him some greedy guy who puts fame over football; it's just the smart thing to do.

Oh, but I'm not saying he ISN'T an obnoxious fame-monger whose game won't translate to the NFL. Hope the Texans don't touch him with a 10-foot pole.
