BrianGO said "Wilson opened the door for QBs like Manziel. Houston would be crazy not to take him" and you responded with "Wilsons a hard worker and he's dedicated.

You're not the only person that feels this way about Manziel. You're also not the only person I've argued with about him so it's all good.
