Enough adjustments? The offensive coaching staff, if they made any adjustments at all, went right back to doing the same damn things that didn't work all game. Did we run the slant pattern that Michael Thomas scored on again in that game...No. I haven't been that high on Herman period, and these last few games have only cemented that. Michigan State, Clemson, and Now VTech employed the exact same game plan, and it worked 3 times in a row. Herman hasn't changed anything to compensate. Fail. Period.

I would argue that Bosa was in perfect position. The angle that Reynolds was taking, he would have either had to toss it over Bosa, or pitch is so far behind him that there would have been 3 or 4 defenders there ready to make a play by the time the back had the ball.

Funny how golf works sometimes. Watch that 2nd shot on 10 again. He necked the hell out of that fairway metal, but got the roll he needed. Key though, he made the putt. Never hurts to get a little lucky. Well deserved.

I dont think much of Romo either, but both Romo and Manziel put up big numbers. Neither of them ever win anything of significance. Romo can't win a playoff game. Manziel beat Alabama one time, but other than that, he beat up on the bottom tier of the SEC and a bunch of cupcakes. I would rather have a quarterback that does whats needed to win than a quarterback that puts up video game numbers and loses big games. Throw Braxton in that conversation as well. He hasn't won anything either.

At what point did I mention Brady Quinn? I asked how many Heisman Trophy winning quarterbacks have done well in the NFL. Cam is the exception, not the rule. I knew Andrew Luck would be a good to great NFL QB, just like I knew Peyton Manning would be a good to great NFL QB. Peyton turned out to be all time great, and Luck could end up that way. And you are right, sometimes you can practice all you want, and someone will be better. Someone is always better, unless you are an all time great. So, my new question is, do you really believe that Johnny Manziel is going to be an all time great NFL QB?

Comment 14 May 2014

I agree with everything you said. My point with the post is that even people who benefited greatly from having him around were put off by him. I don't know about you, but I did a great deal of maturing while in college. The same cannot be said for Manziel. The NFL WILL humble him. Of that I am certain. We will see how he handles it.

How many Heisman Trophy winning quarterbacks in the last 20 years have done anything in the NFL? 3? 4? Yes, I think every starting quarterback in the league is better than any quarterback who has never taken a snap in the NFL. Until they prove they can play, its all hype.

I had a conversation with one of my members today (I'm a golf professional at a high end private sporting community outside Savannah) who is a TAMU alum, booster, and gigantic football fan. He also happens to be a Browns and Indians fan. I asked him today what he thought about the draft, and he said "The Browns are going to wish they went in a different direction. Johnny cannot be humbled, and he just doesn't get it, meaning he will never change his ways. He will not fit well in Cleveland. Oil and water." He spent some time with him at various booster events last summer. All you need to know.

Are you kidding me!!!!??? Johnny Manziel is a better quarterback than Tony Romo? Of all the insane things people are saying about Manziel, that is by far the craziest. He hasn't even thrown a pass yet. Hell, he may not even win the starting job. If Hoyer can play like he did in three games last year, Manziel won't even see the field. By the way, I'm no Romo fan, but I think its a fair comparison. Laughable!

Comment 12 May 2014

I was just thinking this the other day. I can only imagine the kind of numbers Troy would have put up in that offense, or the current Buckeye staff's offense for that matter. So to answer your question, the things that Johnny Manziel has that Troy Smith didn't is 1. He played in the SEC, so ESPN blew smoke up everyone's ass on his behalf, and 2. an extremely narcissistic personality that exudes arrogance, which people sometimes confuse with confidence. In no way is Manziel a better quarterback than Troy Smith from a skill set standpoint.

But, but, didn't you hear? The Browns have Johnny Football now. He's the next Fran Tarkenton/Dan Marino/John Elway/Joe Montana. The Steelers don't stand a chance now!

Comment 09 May 2014

More or less. He's extremely fun to watch, like Manziel, but you're right, he hasn't won anything. The difference is Braxton isn't out in the spotlight saying" look at me, I'm Johnny Fing Football! I'm the greatest!". But they are very similar in terms of not winning anything that really matters.

Comment 09 May 2014

Ole Miss twice, Arkansas twice, MIss St twice, Vanderbuilt, 2012 Auburn, 2012 Missouri. Yeah, that murders row. Throw in Rice, Sam Houston State twice, UTEP, SMU twice, Louisiana Tech, and South Carolina State. Whew!!!! It's a wonder they won any games at all.

Comment 09 May 2014

Everyone keeps saying he won in college. What did he win? He won a Heisman, but he didnt win the SEC, he won against Alabama once. Aside from that game, he beat a bunch of bad teams.

Comment 09 May 2014

I lied. The Browns took Manziel at 22, and I'm not good. Screw the Browns. I'm now a Bengals fan.
