Another Reality Show in the making
He will be a turnover machine for however many games his scrawny little body will allow him to play. Feel sorry for the team that tries to build around him.

He would be awesome in flag football tho.
Hype hype hype.
I have no hate for him. I'm just tired of seeing him everywhere. I'm pretty sure even his egotistical ass is tired of it.
So I know you aren't suppose to just give the starting job to new talented rookies but dam browns are giving Manziel a huge dose of tough love. The comments they make seem like they are against him. The owner and gm keep making these statements telling him to act like a backup, this isn't Hollywood, and now that Manziel is nowhere near hoyer. I see where they are coming from but I don't agree with their choice of words and talking to the media about this. These are things they should be telling him in person instead telling everyone in the world

Haslam is probably the worst owner in any professional sport, ever.

the Browns will be forced to install two different style of attacks ....Hoyer is more of a WCO QB , ,his strengths being good timing and accuracy, and developing a chemistry with his receivers ....Manziel will need more shotgun formations and different blocking schemes to try and get the most out of him, plus he wont develop the patience and skills to read an NFL defense like Hoyer can at this point , and will force the issue by trying to make plays with his feet .....if Manziel cant find any rhythm in the short passing game, he will have to ride the pine until he can mesh with the Browns system , because you can only alter the offense so much for one player , Manziel has his work cut out for him

Lol I see what you did there.
In terms of an owner ruining a franchise because of a power struggle, Haslam takes the cake.
In terms of being an idiot, Sterling wins that trophy.
Now it's Johnny Football. Before this it was Tebow Mania. Thank god that is over with. Before that all we heard about was Brett Favre. For 3 years is was Brett Favre this and Brett Favre that. The media has a tendancy to latch on to 1 story and overblow it 100 times over. This too will pass and they will find a new story to try and make us vomit with.

His mechanics were all off at his pro day. He really hurt himself by not throwing at the combine. I like Bridgewater but all the signs are pointing to Manziel. Texas native, dual threat, great tape, great pro day. Will see if Houston can get over a college kid going to a frat house. Going to be tough.


People got caught up all over Bridgewater's Combine performance and the guy went on to have a pretty good rookie season while Manziel looked utterly lost out on the field when he finally did play. It's too early to call him a bust but the Magic 8 Ball is pointing that way, mostly because it took the guy his whole rookie season to come out and say "wow, I really need to start taking this s**t seriously."









Coaches don't seem to like him, other players don't seem to respect him, he has a lot of work to do and an uphill climb ahead of him otherwise he'll be Johnny CFL before long.

http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/eye-on-football/24986501/report-teammate-said-johnny-manziel-was-a-100-percent-joke

As one player put it: Manziel's 2014 season could be summed up in three words: "100 percent joke."

In the weeks and months leading up to the draft, there were questions about Manziel's physical skills, but also about the off-field issues -- partying, mostly -- and that likely scared off a lot of quarterback-needy teams. But once Manziel started to slip on draft night, the Browns traded back into the first round and selected him 22nd overall, the same picks the team had years earlier used on quarterbacks Brady Quinn and Brandon Weeden.

"During the draft process, not one person interviewed by the team said he was going to grow up," one source directly involved in the drafting of Manziel told ESPN.com. "You can't blame Johnny. This is who he is. The team knew that."

It's the logic used when Redskins owner Dan Snyder was handing out those hysterically high-priced contracts to over-the-hill stars: Don't blame the guy cashing the checks, blame the guy writing them.

But pointing fingers at owner Jimmy Haslam, or the hobo who talked Haslam into taking Manziel, doesn't magically fix all this. The Browns are stuck with a quarterback that doesn't appear to have any interest in being good at his job.

Some veterans "clearly didn't want to play for [Manziel]" because of the lack of readiness, and they responded better to undrafted rookie Connor Shaw in part because he knew the plays, sources said. It wasn't lost on players that Shaw played through a dislocated finger on his left hand and a rib injury that had him passing blood after the season finale, while Manziel played six quarters before hurting his hamstring, then missed treatment on the injury on the final Saturday because he was still in bed. It's telling that new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo said this Thursday: "We're not sure if our starting quarterback is in the building or not. If he is, great, if he isn't, great, too."

But the Browns won't give up on Manziel before he has one more chance to prove himself. Put another way, if he flops in 2015, he'll join Quinn and Weeden on the Browns' former first-round quarterback scrap heap, another depressing footnote for a team that can't seem to ever get out of its own way.

"What Johnny has to understand is [if] he has another year like he just had, he's not going to be famous anymore," one NFL team executive told ESPN.com. "LeBron James is going to lose his number."
