If we do draft Manziel...... is this going to be a thing where we'll forever compare him to Bridgewater?

Or the other way around, we draft Bridgewater, are we going to forever compare him to Manziel?

Either way... even if we pass on both.... it's not looking good for the future of this messageboard.

Anything short of having a landslide best player taken at 1-1 will leave plenty of fodder for future regret. That player does not appear to exist in this draft.

It will be the Vince Young thing all over again if the Texans pass on Manziel. His first first down pass of his career will have his contingent saying I told you so.

The careers of Clowney, Bortles, Bridgewater, and Manziel will be compared, I don't think there is any way around it.

Hopefully the Texans make the right pick.

It'll be even worse if Bridgewater and Manziel end up in the same division. Imagine us with Manziel and the Jags with Teddy, or vice versa.

It's just like VY, Mario, and Reggie Bush.

Hopefully whoever we pick turns out better than those guys.

Here's what Eric Galko, the Director of Scouting for Optimum Scouting and lead editor of www.OptimumScouting.com., lead NFL Draft analyst for Sporting News and regular contributor at National Football Post and TheFootballEducator.com as well, had to say about Manziel. When I read this, I find it hard to argue with.

Quote:
Manziel isnít ready to be an NFL starter ó at least not one that can last. His game is predicated on elusiveness in the pocket, creativity as a runner and the ability to force defenses to hold their coverage longer than the average three-to-four seconds. The professional level is simply too fast, too big and too quick to adjust schematically for those attributes to remain Johnny Football's calling card.

I think how effectively he can be elusive will directly translate to the pounding he is going to take trying to extend plays.

Hardly. The Manziel pushers aren't even the majority on this board. The Bridgewater group is probably the largest, with Team Jadeveon and Team Manziel duking it out for #2.

The Bridgewater group MAY be the largest but they are the least motivated in toto.
