So Browns owner Jimmy Haslam stumbled across a homeless man who said two words to him, "Take Manziel", and that's when his mind was made up.

06 WAS worse fresh off a championship game of ages. I didn't go into the draft rooting against Manziel but I cant lie... I enjoyed watching him squirm as the picks kept going and going without his selection. Odds are against him now. Qb's go to Cleveland to fail.

Yeah that's just a little untrue. The fact is they were asking for 3 #1's. Everyone wanted Clowney, but nobody was willing to trade the house for him. I bet if the asking price was 2 #1's instead of 3, they would have traded the pick. They knew who they were going to take all along, and only a blockbuster deal was going to change that.

You rag the Texans for not taking Manziel, yet 21 other teams, many with just as big a need for a QB as the Texans, but passed on him also.

Sorry, but Manziel ended up were he belongs. Having said that, I honestly think he has a chance to do well there. On paper they look like a nice squad. As a Texan, not so much.

Wow. Chill out. Give the team a chance to prove you wrong. Clowney was the right pick imo. Manziel is leprechaun rainbows and fairy dust. Give Cleveland a chance to show you the true Tim Tebo...err Manziel, and you'll see.

On paper they look like a better team than Houston? I'm not buying that. Granted I like the talent they've been collecting, but I don't think they're any better than we are when it counts.

Maybe they can rally behind Manziel & accomplish things they couldn't last season... but if I recall correctly, that's what "everybody" was saying our problem was last season. That even our LBs didn't believe in Matt Schaub & therefore didn't play to the best of their ability.

I said they look like a pretty good squad on Paper. Never said anything about looking better than the Texans on paper. I said Manziel has a better chance of succeeding there, than here.

Yea nice excuse for poor LB play. It's all Schaub's fault? That's a good one. Seems like I have seen this movie before. Everything is Bush's fault right? When are players going to be held accountable for their poor play? The myth that players did not believe in Schaub is just that. A Myth. Even if it were true, who could justify getting paid all that money to decide not to play up to your abilities because you do not believe in your QB? Schaub is a convenient scape goat, but at some point, players have to take ownership of their own piss poor play and stop blaming their failures on someone else.

The Texans failed as a team last season because of the "Super Bowl or Bust" pressure they, and the fan base put on them, and they chose bust rather than Super Bowl. Even inserting the proverbial Cinderella QB did not help, in fact, when Schaub was re-inserted into that game, the team played harder and moved the ball. So the idea that the team did not believe in Schaub is the reason they failed is as ridiculous as Johnny Manziel being drafted #1 overall. But once again it was Kubiak's fault, or Wade Phillips fault, not the players, right?

As far as who is better when it counts, the Browns finished ahead of the Texans last season in just about every category, and play in a much tougher division, so I think you might be over estimating our beloved Texans.

Just not seeing it. If Manziel can succeed in Cleveland, he can succeed in Houston. I like Cleveland, on paper. The only thing they're missing is the belief they can win.

We looked like crap last season, but we've got players on our team that knows what winning feels like. It would be much easier, I think, to get the Texans to believe they can win.

& yes, I put a lot of stock in that belief.

Just like we regretted passing on VY and him being the second coming in Tennessee. Glad they're both on the CLE roster now.

Nah, but I think Manziel will be successful in Lil' Shanny's offense with all the bootlegs and screens. Shannahan's offense will also allow Manziel to extend plays with his feet, rather run for his life.

As long as Manziel is smart enough to slide or get out of bounds and avoid the bi hits...

It is gonna be an interesting year...

Default Re: Manziel

I just think it's dumb we didn't trade up for either Manziel OR Bridgewater. Two top 15 caliber picks at the most important position on the field were available late in the first round, and we didn't take a risk and move up. That to me is why I am finding it very difficult right now to still consider myself a Texans fan.

This is a vanilla organization and always has been. We do not take chances, we are slow to adapt to change, and will for the foreseeable future remain a .500 football team. Honestly, I hope I'm wrong, but I have been through this same song and dance for a decade now. Nice guys finish last, and the Texans most certainly are the nice guys of the NFL.

As for Johnny, I honestly think he is walking into an ideal situation. People can make fun of the Browns all they want, but they are now LOADED on offense. Their offensive line is a top 5 (top 10 at worse) unit, they have one of the top up-and coming WRs in the game in Josh Gordon, a QBs best friend in a top 5 TE in Jordan Cameron, and a pretty damn good RB (when healthy) in Ben Tate. The Browns defense was solid last year and just got better with the corner they drafted to play opposite of another top 10 quality corner in Joe Haden, and they still have a second round and two third round picks left to go.

I'm looking forward to seeing how this unfolds.
