You honestly believe he will interview well in the most intimidating, important interview he will ever have in his life if he can't even interview well with a simple reporter? I agree film is the most important part of all of this. My point is if two guys have equal film it's got to come down to something else. If one aces the interview and one is meh???? You can't concide that could be the deciding factor?

That's all I'm saying. Not that I want that to happen. Not that I don't like Bridgewater. In fact I think he is more NFL ready than Manziel right now. It's just my opinion that it appears he isn't as prepaired for the interview process as Manziel is. In such a close race, again just my opinion it's a very close race, that could be a deciding factor.

But it was a loaded question..a bad loaded question at that. I mean seriously, how's a guy supposed to answer a question like that right before the biggest interview of his life?


If he answers truthfully, he draws increased attention to it from scouts...

if he answers the way he did, he makes scouts do their own homework & draw their own conclusions.

So he's a liar!!!!!


Wow. A loaded question? That question is asked all the time especially to top QB's.

The interview means NOTHING!!!! I'm a troll for voicing my opinion that an equally talented Manziel could win this race to #1 because he is better prepared for the actual face to face get to know one another portion of the process. No I'm the "ultimate troll"!!!!! Despite the fact that I never said this is what I want to happen. Despite the fact that I have said time and time again that I'm perfectly happy with selecting Bridgewater.

Sorry you're man love for Bridgewater has clouded your judgement to the point where you can't endulge in simple objective conversation about the process of the draft without getting your panties in a wad. You should probably take a mydol. I'm sure you have some. Look in your purse next to your tampons.

Sorry that you can't see that at this point in the process interviewing well should be so drilled into a prospects head that he should be able to do well while hanging upside down choking on a chicken wing.

Sorry that you can't see past your emotional ties and have an objective conversation about particulars of the draft in a draft forum without calling someone names.
Me not being objective? What a joke.

you're the one in here talking about his response to 1 damn question = him not interviewing well at the combine.

You're the one in here getting mad b/c multiple people have called you out on the absurdity of your premise.

You're the one in here trying to make the leap of 1 question equalling a whole damn interview.

You're also in a TB thread expecting not to get flamed for making such claims.

Noone said anything about Interviews not being important....At least i didn't anyway.

I'm not being objective.... The sad thing in all of this is that had you actually read what i wrote, you would've ascertained that i understood what you were trying to say & actually agreed with you that he was caught off guard & seemed unprepared by the question. I just disagreed with you that it meant he wouldn't interview well at the combine.

Get over yourself.

Never said it wasn't...Still, it doesn't mean that it's a good question to ask...what's more is that how they answer that 1 question is no more a predictor of how they will interview at the combine than say a 40 time is predicting how well a guy will run the ball in a game...or more broadly to what you're really trying to get at, how they will play qb in the NFL.

It wasn't about one question. That was just an example. He doesn't look comfortable. He doesn't look confident. He doesn't Look assertive. Why would I get flamed for pointing out something as simple as he doesn't appear to interview well? You're the only one doing any flaming. You started out your post with"mussop" the ultimate troll LOL!

"Lol" at the end of that implies that i was half way joking with you dude, relax. I'm in joke mode b/c i know that if there's someone with something negative to say about the kid it's you, Texian and probably Steelb or Dissacks...& everyone who's frequented this thread knows this; Kinda like me and a few others in the Manziel thread LMAO...Nothing wrong with it, just be prepared to deal with whatever comes your way...especially in a thread dedicated to the subject.

Does he look as comfortable in front of camera as Manziel? No. But neither does Bill Belichick & he's the best in the business at his job...Not that i'm saying TB is going to be the best qb in the league...just making a point that some guys just are never going to be as polished & comfortable in front of the camera as say a Peyton Manning....

All in all, unless you have empircal evidence, You can't possibly make the leap that you did.

There is such a thing as quiet confidence.

If By now you don't understand what I'm really trying to get at then you have a comprehension problem that goes beyond my ability to communicate with you. But I'll try one more time. Pull your head out of Bridgwater's ass far enough so that you can understand this. I love the way Bridgewater Plays. I think he's ahead of Manzella this point. I think Manziel has a higher ceiling but lower floor. I will be happy with either. In my opinion this is a very tight race between the two of them. In my opinion is going to come down to something like the interview process to separate one from the other. If You can't understand that, there's nothing else to say. Except don't forget the Midol.

well that was actually a good response. Sorry I took it wrong. Maybe I need a midol. However I don't what you are talking about when you say I would have something negative to say about Bridgewater. That's far from the truth. I have defended all four prospects at some point. Don't think I have said anything negative about any of them.

Damn.

95 pounds? Seriously?

EDIT: Unless those are 25 KILO plates. At which point, that becomes maybe 155 pounds or so and that's good. But those look like 25 pound bumper plates to me.

Seriously, though.

Lots of things it could be.

There are some routines where you work out with a small percentage of 1RM in order to train explosiveness.

One coach made a point by putting me through a workout where he didn't use any weight heavier than 25 pounds and he liked ta kilt me.

Yep. I was just trying to get ahead of the people calling him weak based on just this picture (before this off-season I would have doubted anybody would do that. Now...)

Those low weight sets can be brutal.

Just a normal kid with a humble backround. His story with his mom hit close to home, that won me over as soon as I saw it. While Manziel was out partying and causing headlines this kid was helping his mom fight cancer.

Much respect to him. But I'm getting tired of hearing about it. Starting to remind me of Manti Teo's girlfriend.

Dude, really?


Quote:
Manziel flew to Houston for a Valentine's Day-themed fashion show fundraiser for 6-year-old Texas A&M fan and cancer patient Charlie Dina, according to Culture Map Houston, which also reported that Texans general manager Rick Smith was in attendance, as well. Manziel and Dina walked the runway, and Manziel signed some autographs afterward.

"I was here for Charlie," Manziel said. "I've been in training for the last month in San Diego and I flew in just for Charlie."

Manziel has been supporting Dina's cancer fight, which included a bone marrow transplant, since 2012.
http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap200...-charity-event

Quote:
"I love you."
Those were Johnny Manziel's final words to six-year-old Charlie Dina as he kissed him on the cheek and put him back on the Kyle Field turf.
He then turned to Dina's parents, hugged both of them and said, "I love you."
As Manziel ran back to the locker room following another Heisman-worthy performance, he left three people in the south end zone with smiles that could've been seen from Northgate.
For those that don't know the Charlie's Angels story, google "Charlie Dina." The six-year-old from Houston is finally cancer free. He was diagnosed with stage-four neuroblastoma, a pediatric cancer, in 2012. He underwent five rounds of chemotherapy, radiation and other treatment before scans showed no evidence of the cancer in May of 2013.
