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

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

Default Re: Manziel

If Bridgwater or Bortles would have given that exact same interview it would have been received totally different. Anything Manziel does or says will always be spun negative by his haters.

Honestly, I think this interview just did a lot for Manziel's case for us selecting him at 1.1. I am sure his agent advised him to come out and say something like this, because now he is making it known that he wants to play for us, and I like that a lot. Obviously everyone wants to be the #1 pick, but I think for Johnny it is more specific to this team than the others.

The most interesting part about this interview for me was:

Quote:
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.

"In Indianapolis, I want to be able to sit there and him draw a play on the board and be like, 'Coach, that was your third-and-12 play from the Super Bowl," Manziel said. "You called that on the right hash from the 42-yard line driving in to score to win the game.' I want to blow his lid off when I'm in that situation."
In my mind it will mean a lot to O'Brien if Manziel comes in and blows him away on the chalkboard. Really shows he has the drive to play in Houston and will come in and learn whatever is put before him.

I just wish the next time a volunteer is asked to do the deed, he simply says, you first, if it's so great.

I particularly liked the little accident a few days ago where the teacher accidentally used a live vest in his demonstration.

I don't like the longhorns and I like manziel as a player. I'm just concerned about his dedication to his profession just as I am about clowney. I wouldn't consider any other prospect worthy of being first overall so I'd like to see a trade down if the texans are not convinced about these two.

Default Re: Manziel

I'd like to think that Manziel is worthy of the 1-1 pick, I think he would be great for the city similar to Earl for the Oilers. But looking at the highlight clips, I just don't see the skills which will translate to the NFL. I might would risk a #2 on him, but not 1-1. If anyone has links to him standing in the pocket and finding his receiver downfield, I'd like to see his mechanics in this situation.
