I'd like a Johnnyception with cheese, and an order of pick-six fries to go.

*and since we're referring to Texas*

"...oh, and a coke."

Cashier: What type of coke would you like?

"Mt. Dew please."

Heh.

But seriously....people need to stop calling all sodas "Coke".....it's annoying.  That would be like calling all beers "Budweiser" or "Bud".

"I'll have a Budweiser."

"What kind?"

"Guinness."

Who the hell is Johhny Manziel?
 
2014-01-08 02:42:15 PM  
As has been spoken about on various blogs/forums, I would not be surprised to see the Texans call New England and get Mallett.
 
2014-01-08 02:43:53 PM  
Subby thinks Manziel is going to the Texans? I suppose that's plausible -- he might be worth that #33 overall pick.
 
2014-01-08 02:43:59 PM  
My preference on Texans draft picks:

1. Bridgewater
2. HeisManziel
3. Trade down for more picks
 
2014-01-08 02:44:27 PM  
Please, a much worse fate awaits Manziel......you could say all this energy is calling him, back where it comes from. He's going to have such a crude attitude, he'll truly be back where he belongs

I don't think he warrants a first round pick, but I'm sure New England wouldn't argue.

Actually it does.  Bill O'Brien coached him during the 2011 season, so Mallet would know the playbook that Bo'B will throw out there.  They can trade the first pick down to get some needed help in other spots and have a decent QB to start things off with.

More likely, Manziel will be the next QB to be added to this famous jersey:

You know if they don't draft him they are going to have a backlash like the Pacers did when they drafted Reggie Miller instead of Steve Alford.
 
2014-01-08 02:52:40 PM  
O'Brien isn't drafting Manziel. He's already said he wants someone highly motivated and Manziel is the second coming of Vince Young, without a NC win.

Most likely they're going to trade down for more picks, hire a veteran to keep the seat warm fora year and get a QB late in the draft. Or draft Bortles since O'Brien seems to like him a lot.

Because Mallett is dreadful. Have you not watched him in preseason or mop-up duty?

ongbok: You know if they don't draft him they are going to have a backlash like the Pacers did when they drafted Reggie Miller instead of Steve Alford.


I  know exactly what it will be like.  Houston has already been there with Vince Young.  People still call into sports radio in Houston suggesting that he is a viable QB for the Texans.
 
2014-01-08 02:56:12 PM  
On a sorta side note, I don't think any of the quarterbacks that are likely to go in the first and second rounds are going to be bad choices at all.  Add in Fales, Carr, Murray, Mettenberger, and maybe even Smith (Wyoming) and - allegedly - Garroppolo out of Eastern Illinois ... and you have yourself a lot of potential to have yourself a solid NFL QB.

Can you say sideline reporter competition for Tebow?
 
2014-01-08 02:59:32 PM  
I would rather have his receivers at TAM. Those guys are the ones that made him look so good. After he ran around the backfield and chucked the ball in the air up for grabs, those guys were the ones going up and fight off the DB's to get the ball.

Yes, and I disagree. And, let's just say you are right, I saw him in college. He was arguably better than Newton in college.  The knock on him coing out of Arkansas was whenever there is so much as a slight breeze of pressure in his face, you had no idea whether or not the ball was going to end up rocketing to the target or in the seventh row. I read one scouting report that joked how if you gave him a four Mississippi count, he'd annihilate NFL defenses.  I believe that and with the way the NFL is today, unless you are playing in Miami, you will get as much time as you need because you can't do shiat on defense anymore.

But, that said, he is still straight out of central casting. Huge frame, huge arm, and can make every throw. Sure, he is hardly mobile but is elusive enough and is outrageously good on play action. You can do a lot worse in the draft than grabbing Mallett now.

Just stop it Subby, we all know the Browns will draft Manziel and it will be hilarious.

To be truly authentic, the order needs to follow up with

"what vegetables would you like on the side?

"Cornbread and macaroni and cheese."

Every time someone brings that up it think of the immortal words of Eddie Felson.

"That's not what I said, kid. I said you *are* a natural character; you're an incredible flake. But that's a *gift*. Some guys spend half their lives trying to invent something like that. You walk into a pool room with that go-go-go, the guys'll be *killing* each other, trying to get to you. You got that... But I'll tell you something, kiddo. You couldn't find Big Time if you had a road map."

What is he? 5'10'' and 175lbs? He's going to get crushed the first time he holds on to the ball too long trying to create some of his Johnny Football magic.

lecavalier: As has been spoken about on various blogs/forums, I would not be surprised to see the Texans call New England and get Mallett.


I have this theory about those people that speak highly of Mallett.  They are all Patriots fans that realize how terrible he has been in the few appearances he's made.  They are hoping to drum up enough interest in him that someone will be stupid enough to take them off the Patriots' hands.

And we agree on this one. He'll obviously have to tame his Johnny Football act because defensive ends at the NFL level aren't going to fall for his pirouettes every time like they do at this level (but, once every other week, he will Johnny Football some poor defender; much to our enjoyment).

No way in hell.  McNair doesn't want players with the kind of character that Manziel has.  He wants his players to either be totally off the radar (like Andre Johnson), or, if they do have a media personality, be safely quirky (like Arian Foster).  The most famous picture of Johnny Football out there is of him at a kegger with a firework in his mouth.

There is no way Bob "Goody-Two-Shoes" McNair drafts that kind of guy to his team.

Ivandrago: What is he? 5'10'' and 175lbs? He's going to get crushed the first time he holds on to the ball too long trying to create some of his Johnny Football magic.


Why do people think he is that small?  I am a bartender in a sports bar so I talk about college football a lot and I have never met one person that realizes he is 6'1, 210. And even if you want to call that program weight, then he is 6'0/200. Nobody is even close when guessing how big he is.

I'm okay with him Johnny Footballing every other week if I get to watch him get levelled on a consistent basis by 180lb CB's and 220lb SS's.

Yeah all that running around means his knee is going to take a hit in an awkward position.

He won't be twirling around NFL DBs
