what is manziel's nfl future?

I don't understand what these pictures are trying to demonstrate.

To prove what a wuss Manziel is. Honestly IDK why Niner fans care so much about this guy except I guess he's got a funny, interesting personality. I mean it's not like we're gonna draft him. If he comes anywhere near this team then boy does Kap really, really suck. C'mon he can barely sniff Kap's jock.

Secondly, I get his "chip on my shoulder" analogy of comparing snack chips but honestly it was pretty dumb. Depending on your taste Fritos and Doritos are both good snacks so not much difference. I prefer Fritos which are slightly more nutritious.
Wait, are you just kidding? Doritos are physically larger than Fritos. He's saying that if Houston passes over him, the chip on his shoulder is going to be even bigger than it is now.

Good question, but I would like to remind you that some pictures are worth one word.

But, seriously the pictures posted really do not demonstrate anything.

The scary thing is that LSU made things very difficult for him and made him look like a deer in the headlights twice in two years. They did a great job in mixing coverages, sending timely blitzes and forcing Manziel to move to his left where he's a far less effective passer. A defense like the 49ers is perfectly setup to give Manziel some of the exact same headaches in the NFL.
Just seems hyperbolic for the spectrum of his draft stock to range from "first pick overall" to "undraftable". Now, in fairness, Cosell was just saying he looked undraftable in those two games, but... still seems like an extreme evaluation on his part.

Particularly since the one of Garcia is probably after several years in the pros and pro weightrooms...and whatever else pros do. Manziel is still a frat boy in that pic.

I think it's becoming clear to me that the reason people don't like Manziel as a prospect is because of the way he looks. Or maybe his personality too.

I have obviously missed the boat somewhere. I saw him do a couple interviews and workouts, and I am not seeing the correlation, he seems like a really sharp guy to me. He is like Russell Wilson, with personality.

When I look at him though, like his face, I can see why some people might not like him. The ears are a little weird. He has a kind of a smirk on his face too, that might turn people off. Well OK, to each his own.

Obviously Manziel is a boy compared to Garcia, because well, he IS a boy, and Garcia started his career as a 30 something year old man.

But I thought all the football stuff was supposed to be the important part. Oh well.

He's an alien
He reminds me of a Rebel Without a Cause character from the 1950's with a white tee shirt, sleeves rolled up to the shoulders with a pack of cigarettes inside.
