Sorry, but Johnny Football doesn't sound like he's going to be a great teammate, leader or worth the headaches.

The Houston Chronicle publish the 1st of a "5 part" series on Johnny Manziel in today paper. This is the article that contains the now infamous quote about the chip on his shoulder going from a "Frito to a Dorito". But I have to wonder if anybody heard or read, what else he said during this really in depth interview, or why those quotes didn't make the headlines like that one quote that was a tiny bit of the whole.

He talks about how important football is to him and that he respects the game and how hard he works to be the best he can. "I'm going to fight until there is no time left on the clock", "It's not about the money to me", "Football and family will always be the most important things in my life", If you read this article and see the complete picture of what trainers and professionals who know the game and what it takes to succeed in the NFL say about Manziel, maybe you wont be so dismissive of Manziel and look at him from a more even perspective.

I don't think any other player will be getting this kind of a write up , its clear the Houston media is behind Manziel. I am too.

Baloney. So why was he autographing shirts? It is TOTALLY about the money. And people who read what he says and think "Wow, the REAL Johnny Football" should be referred to Florida real estate brokers. They'll find some very tempting investment properties.

Stupid. I'm not a fan of this idiot. Until he proves himself over many seasons in the NFL, he should really just shut up.
Peyton Manning said to the Colts before they drafted him, that he would "kick their asses" every time he played the Colts if they passed on him.

This is nothing new, and this thread only shows how silly the public has become with these athlete's and their talk.

A show monkey for sure. But at least he doesn't need a wildcat formation.

Yea thats true I just hope the workout in California pays off. Jadaveon sounds good with j.j. but the guy seems lazy and seem like another sam Montgomery. Im really hoping Bridgewater is the pick hes more of cerebral qb at type of quarterback bill likes. Blake bortles is another blane gabbert.

I'll be SO eager to see how motivated Jadaveon is in an NFL uniform. A fired up version of him could be a Ray Lewis rebirth. But it is all about the fire in his belly. Ray had something NUCLEAR going on inside him.

cocky bastard. He's a darn good quarterback, but I hate him as a person. Comes across as a real jerk and he oozes arrogance.
