He's alternately boasting about how terrific he is, then threatening the Texans brass if they pass on him with their top pick in the Draft. Hey, the kid has got a mouth that overloads his skinny little azz and he's sounding more and more like a jerk, which no coach wants on his team. He should just show up at the Combine and work out, then do the same at his Pro day, and keep his mouth shut unless he's asked a question by a prospective NFL employer.

I guess this is an example of 2 people reading the same quotes and feeling completely different about what we just read. But fair enough though.

I think this only reinforces everybody's starting position. Those who already loved him will love it. Those who hate him will hate it. Those who haven't made up their mind will be uncertain about it.

He could wear a pink dress and high heels for all I care as long as he produces and wins games.

My brain is still leaning towards Teddy but I admit I would be super excited if they call JFF's name on draft day. He's the sexier pick imo.

It's confidence but I'm not sure it doesn't take it too far into "annoyance."

I like the attitude but he'll need to become a bit more understated once he enters the league.

I'm just not certain I want the circus to come to town.

I'm not homophobic, but I've never had the desire to dress in women's clothes under any circumstance. Maybe he lost a bet or something, but I don't even think I'd bet if it meant me dressing like that if I lost.

For the record, my best buddy (high school valedictorian) lost a bet with his girl and had to put on one of her dresses at a party.

While he might have lost a little dignity, I had to give him props for having the guts to do it.

One thing is for sure, Manziel doesn't lack for confidence. I like the fact that he's doing his homework for the combine.

Default Re: Manziel

He may be an self centered jack a$$, but if we draft him, he'll be our arrogant SOB and I'll love him for it.

And if he is a Jag (or any other teams) , I'll 'hate' his guts.

Him growing up as a cowboys fans doesn't remotely have anything to do with what he said. As a Houston fan and a fan of sports teams in this city, I really wish this city would overcome the inferiority complex they have with Dallas..seriously, it's unbecoming.

I had the misfortune of living in that city for a couple of years and I learned this make believe rivalry between the cities is completely one sided. People in Dallas don't even know about it or talk about it.

I'm not even a Manziel fan, but I still don't understand the criticism of his statement for wanting to play in state and be the #1 ovrl choice. Being a Cowboys fan doesn't mean anything.. He wasn't a Agg fan either growing up.. Mack's dumbass just thought he wasn't good enough to compete at QB

Sorry, but can you substantiate why you believe suicide bombers have a lot of confidence?

The difference is a lot of guys who feel slighted don't put in the work to show that they're worthy of being on a different level. Sherman proved it. MJD proved. Jerry Rice proved it. Manziel kind of proved it his second year. Its still a question whether or not he'll prove it in the league. I don't know if Manziel is going to be a huge success in the NFL. I like his confidence though.

He didn't put anyone else down while making his comments. Just simply stated he feels like he'll be the best pick for the team, and if they choose someone else then he'll show why it was a mistake. I honestly don't see the big deal.

LOL if he becomes the new Peyton Manning of the AFC South and just owns the Texans game after game, year after year. Not saying they are the same type of players or that this will happen.......But if it does......LOL at Texan's curse
