Jesus, this kid is not just full of crap, he's seriously in need of professional help as he's clearly got a bad case of delusions of grandeur. I dunno but didn't another Texas native, Vince Young, make the same kind of outlandish boasts/threats when he was coming out of college because I'm getting a deja vu kinda vibe
with Manziel's horsecrap.

"People can call me crazy, and it's not cockiness (but), I'm going to put myself in (position) to win the Super Bowl every single year. A 5-10 guy (Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson) just won the Super Bowl in his second year in the NFL," he said. "That's unreal. I want to be the first rookie to win the Super Bowl."

"If something happens, and it's the Cleveland Browns, I'm going to pour my heart out for the Dawg Pound and try to win a Super Bowl for Cleveland," he said. "I don't care if they've had 20 starting quarterbacks since 1999. I'm going to be the 21st and the guy that brought them the Super Bowl."


Manziel's preparation for the combine includes film study with Kevin O'Connell, who was a New England Patriots backup quarterback when Texans coach Bill O'Brien was an assistant there under Bill Belichick. O'Connell is helping Manziel learn O'Brien's likes and dislikes about offensive football, and he can't wait to talk to O'Brien about it next week in Indianapolis.

I like that last part the most. You have to swing for the fences with this #1 pick and go with the guy with the highest upside. Trust the game film and trust his competition. The guy is a playmaker. Something our storied quarterback history has never had. Look at the throws that he makes.

Havent texan fans had enough of the prototypical QBs?

Remember the most important criteria for quarterback greatness we talked about?

Does he have a great name?

-It cant get any better than Johnny football.

Is he good looking enough?

-If he is good looking, he is confident. If he is confident he gets the girl hence guys want to follow him. Cant you just feel his confidence when you read his quotes even about going to cleveland?

That's the type of swagger Manziel comes with and its infectious in the locker room. Complete opposite of Schaub's muted catatonic magnificence.

This is who Johnny Football comes homes to:





Check mate.

You think teddy bridgewater and his crossdressing self can pull that?

Draft the spectacular player who knows how to score (remember that problem we had with scoring??????) and lets win some games and look good doing it.

Not saying you're wrong for your opinion, but I look at this from a COMPLETELY different angle. What makes him full of crap? This is the same thing that many guys say except they normally say it after the draft. MJD has talked about being slighted by the other 31 teams his whole career.

I think the most confidence you can show is stepping out in heels and walking tall even though you know you don't look good.

suicide bombers also have a lot of confidence.

The fact that suicide bombing and cross dressing is not good yet they still do it is a problem.

BTW, im pro gay rights.

Im just not pro having a franchise quarterback as a cross dresser.

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.
