* sighs * if i were the only one who thought alot of these things about him, you might be right. But i'm not & you know it. the fact that you can't even admit that it...well, screw the texans koolaid, you've o'ded on the JFF fruit punch.

It's not blind hate & i've explained why i don't like him as a prospect numerous times in this thread & others have joined in on that. You just can't get over the fact that I don't like him as a prospect. The above is what you guys do. pull stats from 1 game & think it's all good. The whole crux of you guys' argument is stats (which we know lie) and the always hilarious "bu bu bu he's exciting!!!!"..


You feel 1 way & i as well as others obviously feel another. Get over it.

If I had the time, desire and video equipment, I could put together a video of highlight of him making good throws and it would be much, MUCH longer than one you put that shows him making bad ones.

The issue you can't seem to get that there is a difference between saying "I don't like his style of play because he doesn't do X, Y, Z well" and saying "all he does is throw jump balls to his receivers". You didn't have to respond, but you chose to say "That's all he does" because that is what you truly believe. You painted yourself as a hater with that ignorant comment (among others) and then when people point it out, you claim EVERYONE ELSE has the problem and you are the only one who is being reasonable.

Whatever. You can make as many excuses as you like, and try to backtrack from your statements, but the fact remains that you can't admit Manziel is a pretty good QB that has the tools to be a first round pick and to make it in the NFL.

And for the record, I don't want Houston to draft Manziel with the first pick. Maybe if they trade down.

You're a clown....

I should hope you could put together a longer video of him making good throws vs. jump balls for someone who threw the ball 400 times this past year...congratulations... You took what i said LITERALLY. I'm not surprised. Such is the hypersensitivity of JFF fanboys.

What you seem unable to grasp is that I've said it both ways within this very thread. Yet you seem to be the only one who can't take it for some reason......

& lol at "the tools" argument. There are at least 10 guys who enter the draft EVERY YEAR who have "the tools" to make it in the NFL...2-3 usually do go in the 1st and the others are drafted in subsequent rounds. Why is it then that there's such a high failure rate amongst qbs? In other words, tools mean about as much as his stats in the SEC...very little when it comes to playing the position how it needs to be played on the next level.


Yes, i said what i said b/c i firmly believe it to a certain degree...and? Deal with it...not everyone is head over heels in love with your boy and all his stats.

Call me crazy, but I believe it is more Manziel making Evans look like a superstar than the other way around. I have watched every single friggin game Evans has played in an Aggie uniform and while being supremely gifted athletically, the guy is a bit of a headcase and doesn't always show up when the team needs him. Just take a look at what Manziel did for the career of former Aggie Women's Basketball practice player Travis Labhart.

Honestly, I really don't think you have any clue what you are talking about.

For the record, that level of investment wouldn't be necessary; you could just as easily watch cutups of his games and just make a note of the time on the video when he makes a certain pass. I did the same thing in a Clowney thread for his game against UNC to point out how many times he was double-teamed/chipped.

As usual your post consist of nothing but Mindless drivel. Stemp just made you his message board ***** and the best comeback you could produce is "your a clown". I think it's obvious who the clown here is.

Yeah, silly me. Taking what you say at face value, when you actually really mean something totally different THIS TIME, even though you've made arguments supporting the statement time and again.

You want to talk about clowns, take a good hard look in the mirror.

Would you suggest he not throw to a receiver who can make those plays because other player won't be able to make them? Come to think of it, that's what we did with Hopkins. After proving his ability, we stopped using his skills.

Default Re: Manziel

Chris Evans is a big part of Manziel's success this year, but that's ignoring JFF's ability to make average guys look really good, like the 3 TD passes to Labheart, or his production with Ryan Swopes. Laying his success at the feet of Evans is missing the point.
