I think it sends mixed signals to the team if on one hand you say you're "concerned about the attention he brings" & on the other, you say, "We need to get mentally tougher."

Something about leadership starting at the top & all.

One of the first things OB did when he got here was take down all the individual stuff and put up things that signified team.

OB might be concerned that Manziel would defy THAT message.

Being mentally tough has nothing to do with it.

& your whole post has nothing to do with being concerned about the attention Manziel brings.



On another note, I just saw this.

So wanting the team to be a team and taking down all the individual stuff at the facility has nothing to do with the massive amount of attention one player will get?

LOL...ok

Horse pucky. That's like saying "toughen up" and "don't jump on hand grenades" sends mixed signals.

Default Re: Manziel

would love for us to trade back and nab him.

the thing i like most about manziel is that he has visibly improved over 2 seasons. and this off season is appears he was worked really hard (evident in the proday performance). let's see what the dude can accomplish with an offseason or two in the NFL.

and 1-1 though, I have my doubts just like the rest.

I dont know what else manziel has to do in order prove his talent. Playing in the toughest conference in football wasnt enough. Putting up great numbers in that same conference wasnt enough. Making spectacular play after spectacular play showing off his special vision and running ability wasnt enough. Running well in the combine wasnt enough. Having big hands wasnt enough. Passing well in his workout wasnt enough.

I blame mindless espn for ruining this guy's reputation and the gullible idiots like clockwork bought it.

What has this guy really done off the field too garner such character questions?

Did he kill anybody?
Did he rape anybody?
Did he get busted for drugs?
Did he get busted for dui?
Did steal anything?

What is it? What did this guy do to have been flagged with the questionable character?

The autograph thing? Please, NCAA are scumbag money grubbing opportunist with an infantile view on student athlete morality.

The going to a longhorn frat party? you have got to be kidding me. What did he do there? did he darren sharper a couple ladies? Did he get into a fight? What is it? they kicked him out because he was a popular aggie football player?

What else? ahh the Manning Camp thing.

Seriously, the Manning Camp? WTF is that? Is that part of the combine? Is that part of the nfl interview process? The manning camp? Did they play a game football game in the manning camp that proved or disproved a football player's talent?

psst.,

please.

Manziel is the real deal. Mark my words, he will become a successful and exciting nfl player. Ive seen Merril Hodge's typical shock journalism act on espn bashing Manziel. COMPLETE AND UTTER BOLLOCKS. Manziel is no Tebow. Tebow was a bruising runner who bulldozed tacklers. Manziel is a slick runner who relies on vision, angles, and speed.

Mark my words,

Blake Bortles is Matt Schaub 2.0 while Manziel is cut from the same cloth as Russell Wilson, Kapernick, Newton, and RG3.

I dont even care anymore, i hope the texans pass up on BOTH Manziel and clowney. We had a chance to draft patrick willis, julius peppers, russell wilson but instead chose the safe prototypical picks.

HIGH RISK HIGH REWARD, LOW RISK, LOW REWARD.
FORTUNE FAVORS THE BOLD.
NO GUTS, NO GLORY.

Go ahead make the same prototypical "safe" pick so we can have the same prototypical texan result.


***THREAD SUBCRIBED***
Your best post in the thread so far. In total agreement.

All I can say is I will be rooting for Manziel no matter where he goes. He has proven himself on every level, has worked as hard as basically anyone in all of college football, improved significantly on his passing from the pocket between 2012 & 2013, and wants to win more than anyone else on the field. When possibly the great college football coach in history, Nick Saban, calls you the fiercest competitor he has ever faced, that my friend is a guy you want on your team.

As much as it pains me, I will root for Manziel even if he goes to the Titans or Cowboys. Unless we trade out of the pick, it will be inexcusable at this point to pass on Manziel. Clowney is not Mario. He also has serious character questions with how he basically sat this season out and as such, there is no one better for the Texans to pick than Manziel.

I will not be like the VY fans and quit rooting for the Texans if they pass on Johnny. They will always be my team. But I will root for Johnny, because of the improvement he has shown and his desire to work on every aspect of his game, regardless of what team he goes to.

And yep, only Aggies like this kid... Link

Quote:
NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock said Thursday if he was a general manager and had to take one QB in the top-10 picks of the 2014 draft, Manziel would be his selection.

“I think the kid loves competition,” Mayock said. “I think the kid lights up like a Christmas tree when all these GMs (are here). Do you want a guy that lights up or a guy that shrinks? And in the NFL … I think he’s that kind of guy.”

That’s a significant change from Feb. 18, when Mayock said Manziel was unsteady and a liability in the pocket, while Bridgewater was the best QB candidate.

Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice joined Mayock’s side Thursday, comparing Manziel to former San Francisco star teammate Steve Young, who successfully followed the legendary Joe Montana and helped the 49ers win the 1994 Super Bowl.

“If (Manziel) can just relax, stay in the pocket, deliver the ball down the field with accuracy and get the ball in the hands of his playmakers, I think it’s a no-brainer for the Houston Texans to take this guy,” Rice said.
That is a HUGE compliment coming from Mayock. Do you want the guy that gets the most pumped up when the lights are the brightest on your team or playing against your team? This is the quality guys like Brady, Montana, Steve Young, Johnny U, & Joe Namath have. When the spotlight is on, they turn it on. You either have that quality or you don't. Johnny Manziel has that.
