No one at the Browns are worried...just a writer from Chicago stirring up some trouble and looking for people to click on this article (be sure to thank Manziel). 

Try worrying about your Bears and spend less time worrying about Johnny Manziel.  Everyone has an opinion on what Manziel is doing and not doing. What I know is that Manziel is all business when it comes to football so stop projecting your ability to learn a playbook on someone else. He will be starting before you know it.

Johnny is all about team and playing hard but when he is off the field he has the right to relax and enjoy life.

I enjoyed the article. I just wish that the key to JM success wasn't changing him. Ultimately that is what you are saying, the Browns need time to change Johnny into every other QB throwing from the pocket for him to be successful. I hope that they don't take out of Johnny what makes him exciting and fun to watch. Give him some additional skill sets but embrace what is unique and spectacular about Johnny already. The answer isn't always about conforming to what is familiar so the coach is comfortable but instead embracing all that Johnny brings to the game.

Enjoyed the article., I just wish Kyle was all in on Johnny instead of trying to figure out how to change him in to something he is not.

Sorry,  I am not seeing eye to eye on your QB assessment nor the order. I am really tired of the same old preceived concerns about Manziel.  He is not half the partier the media makes him out to be. 

What makes Manziel different as a QB is not his size which is what you wrote but his unique talent as a football player.  He is a player, all in, 100%.

I will be so happy next Fall when JM is on the field playing football and all the naysayers are eating their words.

Eric,  what isn't that you don't like about Manziel?  I have read several articles by you and there is always the same undertone with regards to Manziel.

The question here is how do you evaluate a player who is different, who doen't fit the sterotypic QB?  If you can't do that then you will continue to struggle to see the value of what JM brings to a team's offense. 

I think what is also totally undervalued in many assessments I read is JM's ability to learn and grow his skill set from last year to this year.  He is a builder of skill set, he keeps layering a new technique or method onto what he already knows, he can assimilate and apply what he learns in a variety of situations.He is smart, quick,  and has dealt with naysayers all of his life. I don't see him falling later the 5 in the draft because there are too many teams that are afraid to miss out on what they think he can bring to a football team.  If the Texans are smart they will take him #1.

The only reason I started watching Texas A & M football is Johnny Manziel (started mid season last year).  I have of course along the way gotten to know other players and become a fan of the whole team... but Johnny drew me in to Aggie football.  Downplaying Manziel is not a good strategy until he has actually declared that he is leaving for the NFL.  I am still not sure that is the case for Johnny...he loves being with the team and you are only in college for a short time...the NFL will be there in the future.  If the University continues to push him out he just might decide to go sooner than later.
