I really don't know what world it is you people live in.
Whatever dude. I was a VY zealot just like you're a JF zealot and the similiarities are stunning. I couldn't be reasoned with just like you can't be reasoned with.

Longhorns and Aggies don't factor into this at all for me. The war ended for me when A&M left the Big 12.

"Questionable work ethic" really points to how much into film the guy is. I haven't seen or heard anything yet that tells me he's a cerebral QB. The biggest ding on his work ethic IMO is when he walked out/was thrown out of the Manning Passing Academy.

I don't put a lot of stock in Pro Days anyway. They're set up to make it damn near impossible for the participants not to look good.

Yep, a person can be a Cowboys fan and a Texans fan. This isn't 1990s Gangsta Rap.

Well, when you put it that way, you sound much more reasonable
Just yanking your chain man. I understand the reservations (I have several too) but as an Ag I find it hard not to enjoy today. Either way, that's not important: the million dollar question is how much did Bill O'Brien weigh this pro-day in his overall evaluation of Manziel, of course.

A rouge scholar? Someone who studies women's makeup?

Do you mean "rogue"? As in someone who's off-the-reservation?

Or do you mean Rhodes Scholar?



Seriously, though. I'm not sure where you're going with that.

Cossell talked about this and his opinion Manziel is unwilling/unable to pick up the play designs.

Hey guys, first time long time, thanks for taking my call...I'm curious since no one has surprisingly brought this up, what's the comparison in hype and/or as pro prospects between johnny and VY in 06? Love the show, and I'll hang up and listen.

So you're labeling him with poor work ethic because of a QB camp that meant nothing but you don't put stock into pro days? And you're labeling him with poor work ethic because you haven't heard he was a cerebral QB or that he doesn't watch film?

You should say these things out loud to hear how stupid they sound before you hit submit. You're making yourself look foolish.

Funny, I've heard garbage since the Texans inception. Considering half my family is still there and they represent part of the incessant stream, it's assuredly NOT one-way.

I'll give you 70/30 or so though.

All of my uncles and cousins on my mother's side live in the Dallas area and growing up all ever heard was their bs about the Cowboys. So, in my experience it came from them first.
