Johnny Football Is Coming!

April 9th, 2014

johnny football III

Joe noticed in a few of his comments on this here corner of the Interwebs that the Johnny Football haters of Bucs fandom (Joe will bet the same crowd is also largely inflicted with the Sammy Watkins Fetish) were giggling that the Bucs have yet to invite Johnny Football to One Buc Palace for extensive interviews.

Well, bad news folks (or good news for right-thinking, red-blooded football fans). Johnny Football’s coming. This is the word from Woody Cummings of the Tampa Tribune. Johnny Football will be at One Buc Palace Thursday.

This isn’t the first time the Bucs have met with Johnny Football. If the new Bucs administration wants to make a bold move that will energize a fanbase short of making a postseason run that hasn’t happened in 12 years, drafting Johnny Football will make a strong statement that the Bucs are not fooling around any longer with patchwork offense.

    This news will sadden the haters.
    Come on Johnny, and bring those hotties with you!

  2. Nick H Says:

    “or good news for right-thinking, red-blooded football fans”

    I’M RIGHT AND YOU’RE WRONG is all I hear in the most childish 12 year old voice imaginable.

  3. bucrightoff Says:

    Someone needs to hook Johnny up with a link to this site. After viewing it, I strongly suspect Johnny will refuse to play for the Bucs. Dude does not want to be stalked 24/7. Jacksonville will be better for him (and of course, this site will be renamed JoeJagsFan in short order).

  4. Mr. T Says:

    I wouldn’t read too much into this Joe, I’m sure when all is said and done they will have most all the “name” QB’s in for a visit. Don’t want to tip your hand by just having 1 or 2 visit. Then again all these QB visits may be just an elaborate smoke screen. We won’t know till May what their real intentions are.

  5. ShutTheBucUp Says:

    I just don’t think he’ll be there at #7. Maybe you should give us your insight as to why you believe 6 teams will skip over a franchise quarterback, especially when 4 of the 6 need a QB quite desperately.

  6. THETRUTH Says:

    Will he be signing autographs at the UFO on dale mabry..???

  7. finishers Says:

    better go put your best dress on lol

  8. bucfever Says:

    I wonder how many will join Joe lusting on the sidelines? When you got the news, did you feel like the 4th of July? Watch out Rachel, Joe will use someone else tonight to dream about. Joe can’t wait till he comes (of course I’m talking about Johnny Football).

    The answer is remarkably simple: No QBs in this draft are actual franchise guys. This draft is filled with hopes and dreams, but nothing even close to a sure thing. No Andrew Luck or Matt Ryan in this draft. Basically it’s a bunch of Josh Freemans: great potential, questionable whether the results will match.

  10. Eric Says:

    Yessssssss!

  11. Buccanole Says:

    Joe will he be bringing his girlfriend(s)? And if so can I get an article about her(them) followng Thursday?

  12. Yar Says:

    Just trying to make people think they would take him so they can get a trading partner to trade down.

  13. Eric Says:

    Best quarterback prospect in 20 years.

  14. bucrightoff Says:

    Eric is on drugs. He’s literally take Manziel over Manning and Luck? Good God…

  15. voice of reason Says:

    would you trade the #7 pick for matt ryan?
    i wouldn’t.

  16. robert6 Says:

    joe should really change his infatuation references from Rachel to manziel.

  17. JMN Says:

    Johnny might need to get a restraining order against Joe before he comes to Tampa.

  18. Mumbles Says:

    You mean all it takes is a kiss on the cheek!

  19. gcarr74 Says:

    I smell a restraining order.

  20. Eric Says:

    Easy to look back at great carreers like manning and say great prospect.

    Barry Sanders was a great prospect. Woooo hoooo im a genious.

    Prospectively its as bit harder.

  21. UnderDog Lefty Says:

    And where will Johnny Football end up? TIck tock, 29 more days and all the speculation will finally end and we can finally talk about something else!

  22. Barry Says:

    Barry White on the field speakers, very romantic.

  23. Ladyfan Says:

    The only way Johnny FB, Tim Tebow and other running QBs can succeed is if the team is willing to build the offense around his style of play while he learns to read Ds better and see downfield options better. I would love to have the most fun QB ( but not as hot as Tebow..ahem…) play for us but only if the Bucs make the commitment to his success. Otherwise pick any vanilla pocket passer you want and watch the dink and dunk return…if you like that kind of offense…the kind I find truly “offensive?, Pun intended! With Lovie being a defensive minded coach, I sincerely doubt he would put that much time and trouble in to that style of football. Just ok ( meaning “good enuf”‘ ) offense with stifling defense is what he knows and probably loves….Maybe Brad Johnson has a clone or a son or something coming up in the ranks…

  24. JBFstalkingjohnnyfootBALLS Says:

    There was a loud thump heard across Tampa Bay. Joe just caught an erection. Can anyone imagine if the Bucs draft Johnny and sign Tim Tebow. Tampa Bay would not be safe. It would be a WILD CAT FIGHT AMONGST GROWN MEN! It’ll be like teen girl fighting over there teen idol. SMFH!

    Joe and the rest of Johnny’s groupies will be down at One Bucs showing Johnny there mangina’s

  25. Gt40bear Says:

    Calm down Joe, don’t make us get out the hose!

  26. Architek Says:

    “drafting Johnny Football will make a strong statement that the Bucs are not fooling around any longer with patchwork offense.”

    Like I said earlier this week – one word – agenda. That being said it’s you all site and your can post absolutely what you want to post but when did Manziel become as safe a draft prospect as let’s say a superior talent in Andrew Luck?

    What does drafting him have to do with your quote above? How would this signal the Bucs “seriousness” of building a serious offense? All I am going to say is either you hope the Bucs land him or you better keep your Pom-poms in your hand for the next qb because this is getting to be more and more suspect. I have a funny suspicion if he slips and we don’t draft him you will campaign the draft was a failure.

    I am keeping score, especially after the posts and subtle shots at and about the times credible writers for the avg Joe WR Williams.

  27. rdbucfan Says:

    Johnny Manziel,

    Be wary of the guy that says he has a couple of balls for you to sign.

  28. Espo Says:

    Bucs are just doing their due diligence this shouldn’t get you excited. Unless you plan on hiding in his hotel room….

  29. RustyRhino Says:

    I would take Ryan with the 7th at least we know he can play in the NFL. Johnny manpipedream has yet to play in the Big leagues. He has yet to even play QB for 3 seasons. For the record I don’t care if he pulled in college that’s between him and his box of Kleenex.

  30. Mark Says:

    Next Headline: JOHNNY IS GONE. Vanished in a puff of smoke.

  31. biff barker Says:

    The Bucs may very well draft J Football to sell some seats.

  32. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m confused as to who I am, because I would love to have either Watkins or Johnny Football. Unfortunately, I don’t think either will be there. Mike Evans would make a nice consolation prize.

  33. Kramden Says:

    rdbucfan –> Absolute Classic!!!

    Right, but everyone was thinking Hall of Famer when Manning was in the draft process. Everyone was thinking Hall of Famer when Andrew Luck went through the draft process (it was called Suck for Luck after all). With Manziel, it’s evenly split 3 ways: Bust, Great, Average. But its not a consensus he’s going to be great. As Joe already mentioned, if he was a lock to be great, he’d be going #1 and the Bucs would have no shot at him. The fact he could fall to 7, 7 or even 37, tells you all you need to know. Manziel is a major risk, which could pay off, but of course could spectacularly backfire. No such risks with Manning and Luck.

  35. Zane Pope Says:

    This just made my day please god let us get Johnny Football.

  36. Orca Says:

    My hope is that this interest in the big 3 QBs is a ruse to create interest from other teams to attempt a trade up.

    Still think, with the significant questions around the big 3 QBs, that a 2nd or 3rd round QB is a better gamble and a better value. Don’t become infatuated with Fruityball as there are reasonable doubts about translating his game to the NFL. Bridgewater is not going to be anything great. Bortles has a way to go. I think Derek Carr and Jimmy Garappolo have just as good a chance at achieving franchise QB status as Fruityball.

  37. Please Says:

    I heard they brought in an apple box to stand on so the receptionist could see him over the counter when he checked in.

  38. Ernest T. Bass Says:

    The welcome mattress is already on the practice field. It was moved from the party house. If that mattress could talk!! Got a feeling there will only be room for Johnny and a couple of babes. Someone will be left out sitting in the grass.

    LOL. –Joe

    “I’M RIGHT AND YOU’RE WRONG is all I hear in the most childish 12 year old voice imaginable.”

    Why the heck do you even come here then? I mean, seriously? If all you do is complain about not liking it, get the heck out!

  40. iamabuc Says:

    Let’s just cut the BS. If Manziel is there at #7 pick, Lovie must get this guy, period. He’s got it all, and the best thing about him;…. when the pocket collapses, he’ll make the play, and you guys know it. Com’on Man!!

  41. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Please Says
    “I heard they brought in an apple box to stand on so the receptionist could see him over the counter when he checked in.”

    Now that is quality smack, lol.

  42. Buc1987 Says:

    Eric …Manning and Luck came out in the last 20 years. They were considered slam dunk franchise QB’s by MANY people. Many people on the other hand think Manziel is far from a slam dunk can’t miss. That includes Joe.

  43. phil Says:

    This is great news. Mons Venus here we come.

  44. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    bucrightoff
    “The fact he could fall to 7, 7 or even 37, tells you all you need to know. Manziel is a major risk…”

    That is very poor reasoning, considering the same could be said of every player. Clowney could fall because of the story of him not having heart. Watson had some off field issues. Bridgewater had a horrible pro day.

    I could go on, but each player could slide for a different reason. All it says is that teams let the media influence their decisions. If they’ve really done a good job scouting, the combine, pro days or media would not matter a bit.

  45. Buc1987 Says:

    Architek …good job man keep Joe in check for us.

  46. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Buc1987, Luck was not considered a slam dunk guy. Neither was Peyton. It’s easy to make that claim after the fact, but there was risk with them as well.

    No one knows 100% that a QB will succeed in the NFL.

  47. bucrightoff Says:

    Bonzai, you’re missing the point. Andrew Luck was projected to be the #1 pick in the draft when he was a freshman at Stanford. So was Peyton Manning at Tennessee. They were absolute, 100% locks to go #1. The only way they weren’t going #1 was by dying before the draft. So yes, any player can fall. But not a QB who projects to be a 20 year starter and Hall of Famer. They do not fall…ever. The fact Manziel could be picked anywhere from #1 overall to the 2nd round according to projections says he’s not even close to a lock to be a starting NFL QB, let alone a Hall of Famer. Luck and Manning, by far, were better prospects than Manziel. To suggest otherwise is pure insanity.

  48. Buc1987 Says:

    Bonzai….yeah that’s why analysts were already talking about future NFL stars in Manning and Luck’s sophomore years long before the draft.

    Maybe not a slam dunk in your mind, but suck for Luck was not made up. It was a slogan for a reason Bonzai.

  49. Buc1987 Says:

    bucrightoff…I see you took the longer approach. lol

  50. JBFstalkingjohnnyfootBALLS Says:

    God I hope the Bucs don’t go back to the dark days of the 80′s. Bad franchises like those Bucs teams, the Browns, Jags, and the Raiders draft people like Johnny. PLEASE BUCS, BE SMART WITH THAT PICK!

  51. Buc1987 Says:

    Hell Ryan Leaf was considered a better prospect coming into his draft than Manziel is in this one.

  52. Barry Says:

    And this one goes out to little Johnny from Joe and Justin:

    Gonna find my Johnny, gonna hold him tight
    Gonna grab some Afternoon Delight
    My motto’s always been “When it’s right, it’s right.”
    Why wait until the middle of a cold, dark night ?

    When everything’s a little clearer in the light of day?
    And we know the night is always gonna be here anyway?

    Thinkin of you’s Johnny is working up my appetite
    Lookin’ forward to a little Afternoon Delight
    Rubbin’ knobs and knobs together make the sparks ignite
    And the thought of lovin’ you is getting so exciting

    Skyrockets in flight!
    Afternoon Delight!
    Afternoon Delight!
    Afternoon Delight!

    Started out this morning feeling so polite,
    I always thought a fish could not be caught that didn’t bite.
    But you got some bait a-waiting and I think I might
    Like nibblin’ a little Afternoon Delight

    Skyrockets in flight!
    Afternoon Delight!
    Afternoon Delight!
    Afternoon Delight!

    Be waiting for me, baby, when I come around.
    We can make a lot of lovin’ ‘fore the sun goes down

    Thinkin’ of you’s workin’ up a’ appetite
    Lookin’ forward to a little afternoon delight
    Rubbin’ knobs and knobs together make the sparks ignite
    And the thought of lovin’ you is getting so exciting

    Skyrockets in flight!
    Afternoon Delight!
    Afternoon Delight!
    Afternoon Delight!

    Afternoon Delight!

    (A madrigal fugue)

    Afternoon Delight!

  53. Ed Says:

    What a joke, draft a wide receiver and put this to bed please.

  54. Chris Kamelaris Says:

    If Manziel isn’t considered a sure fire franchise Qb by the Bucs themselves they have to and probably will pass. With the #7 it would seem the Bucs must add something to the offense after all the attention the defense got in free agency. I trust the Bucs have done their homework and go with best available offensive player with that pick. Would not be surprised at all to see the Bucs trade back and add a couple more picks considering how deep this draft is.

  55. Pierce Says:

    Joe, I keep hearing the same thing in regards to his pocket discipline (or the lack thereof). Not watching any eagles games last year, can a quarterback who consistently needs the play to breakdown before making the pass flourish in a Chip Kelly offense? Hit me back brother. I’d love to hear your take.

    ————————————————————————————–

    Oh come on, why only read what you want to hear? That’s just no fun. I’ve been coming here a long time and sometimes it’s absolutely infuriating and other times it’s quite enjoyable, it’s just part of reading things on a site you don’t control.

    My dislike is more towards the blatant insults hurled at those points of view that don’t line up EXACTLY with the writer’s. Simply because people don’t like Johnny Scrambles they’re all of a sudden stupid, football idiots who couldn’t figure out how to strap on a helmet.

    Update: Loads of people have PLENTY of football knowledge who aren’t writers or analysts. We’re just not a bunch of sycophants who will sit here and gobble up every word and treat it as gospel.

    You’re fooling yourself if you think everyone is totally in love with Jonathan Paul Manziel, and not liking the guy doesn’t make the dissenters a gaggle of degenerates or some kind of lesser being.

    With that being said, I absolutely cannot wait for the draft to be over. Mainly to see how my Bucs will come out of it, but a secondary benefit will be the ability to come to this site and hopefully read the buckets of tears, or hopefully never read a single article about Jon Paul ever again.

  57. JBFstalkingjohnnyfootBALLS Says:

    @Ed,

    Bucs needed a WR ever since Mike Williams went down. The Bucs are in need of impact players like Clowney, Watkins, either of the OT’s. Players that will come in and play right away.

  58. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Joe’s JFF is an exciting player, but who really wants a repeat of RGIII? I want a QB who stays healthy for the long haul. What good is an exciting player if his slight build and propensity for running gets him injured all the damn time? Haven’t we learned anything at all by watching RGIII? Guys who run and who are built like this don’t last. It’s a proven fact. Stop living in a fantasy world where the laws of physics and of past experience don’t apply to your favorite player. Come back to the real world.

  59. Buc1987 Says:

    Barry…funny stuff. How long do you think it will be before Joe takes it down?

  60. BUCFAN4LIFE Says:

    Joe has an OBESSIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER about Johhny Manziel. It can be treated so please go get yourself some help for the sake of yourself and all of the site visitors, before everyone stops coming here and the site crashes, and you are left with only your beer and intrusive thoughts about Johnny football.

  61. Nick H Says:

    Teams have 30 players they can bring, it’s no shock this buddy here is on that list. But I think i’d have more peace of mind knowing we draft a player that’s not so boom or bust.

    I’d have an absolute ball if Watkins fell to us (unlikely but not impossible) and wouldn’t be unhappy if one of the OTs came down south either.

  62. Buc1987 Says:

    FLBoyInDallas …and RGIII has bigger build that Manziel too. That’s what people forget. If a bigger guy like RGIII can get badly hurt from running around like an idiot. How long before Johnny gets hurt?

    Yeah he will be exciting to watch for about 5 games until he’s on IR.

  63. Firethecannons Says:

    Joe(s), you remind me of Kathy Bates in Misery.

  64. Bucs2044 Says:

    Is his workout being held at the Mons?

  65. FLBoyInDallas Says:

    Buc1987…exactly

  66. Bucfan#37 Says:

    I’m OK with whatever happens. I don’t have a choice now do I?

  67. Patrick Says:

    I’m pretty sure we’ll win more than 4 games with Johnny as our QB.

  68. Eric Says:

    So I guess we have to wait until the next universally understood Payton manning to come our way before we can get a QB.

    I’d imagine such a sure fire prospect will be the number one overall pick.

    Better get to losing or sell the farm to move up. Im assuming the universally understood next Payton Manning will be highly sought after when he appears.

  69. zam Says:

  70. DallasBuc Says:

    There is a lot of homo-erotic innuendo being projected on to Joe by quite a few you. Obsessive homo-erotic projecting…hmmm. You dudes are fooling no one.

  71. JGM 2.0 Says:

    This one’s for you DallasBuc:

    The headline for this article was originally:

    “JOHNNY FOOTBALL IS COMING…….and so is Joe!!!”

  72. delson Says:

    Some of these comments make me laugh n some are very insightful. 2 years of football to being drafted as the greatest college qb to ever play in the ncaa. 2 years in the ncaa. Manziel should play baseball in the mlb if he can run n throw so well. I heard an analyst (I forget the name) say johnny has a weak pocket presence. I saw him play one time this year and i thought the same thing. We have 2 competent qbs who have game time experience. Why waste a top ten pick on a player who will sit the bench as a number 2 or even number 3? Last I checked we need at least one guard but I’d like if we got 2. At least 1 wr and at least 1 lb. We have 3 picks out of the first 4 rounds. Those are our top 3 needs. Four if u count a 2nd guard. Like I said if we don’t get watkins at 7 we should trade down to around the middle of the first get a 3rd or 4th round pick. Pick up another wr or g or trade up for a nicer lb. If glennon don’t work out we got next draft n the draft afterwards. That might suck to go thru another two years of not havin a future qb but could be pretty smart. We would be looking for another wr also but the holes of our team would not be so great when we do get our qb.

  73. JGM 2.0 Says:

    My last comment was over the line I expect it to be not approved or marked over. Sorry Joe’s.

  74. ManzielMadness Says:

    Manziel in the first, best receiver we can get in the second whether its Benjamin, Robinson, etc., Billy Turner OT North Dakota St, dude can play guard or tackle, and Robert Herron in the 4th. Would love this scenario.

  75. The_Buc_Realist Says:

    If the Bucs drafted the little qb from Texas, and that is a Big “IF” I will just have to make my ” JOHNNY FAILURE ” sign.

  76. Buc1987 Says:

    JGM 2.0 …ah ha ha ha ha over line yep.

  77. JGM 2.0 Says:

    I actually am ashamed of that comment I’m better than that. Once again sorry Joe’s.

  78. Joe Says:

    My last comment was over the line I expect it to be not approved or marked over. Sorry Joe’s.

    Joe thought it was funny!

    No problem at all man. No harm, no foul. All good.

  79. b.Bruce Says:

    Joe you should make it 21 and older only on this site.please draft Johnny football.

  80. Buc1987 Says:

    Forget about what Joe will do if Manziel is there at 7 and the Bucs pass on him.

    I’m more worried about Eric.

  81. RastaMon Says:

    Joes gonna have to wear a condum…so the wet spot doesn’t show

    Johnny Football is coming!

    …coincidentally, the title of Joe’s favorite porn.

  83. lightningbuc Says:

    JGM 2.0,

    When I read the title I thought it was a porn about Johnny’s pulling ability.

  84. Eric Says:

    I’ll be ok if they pass on Johnny Football.

    Perfectly fine.

    Nooooo problem at all.

    Won’t even phase me.

    Splash……………………….

  85. Westsidebucsfan Says:

    Make sure you keep your 1000 ft gap between you and JF, joe. I heard Florida doesn’t play around with restraining orders!… You must have the biggest wood knowing he will be in town.

  86. WalkdaPlank Says:

    Can’t tell you how hard I would lol if the Bucs pass on Johnny. What would be even more hilarious would be to see McCarron drafted in the 3rd. If that happens close the Skyway down. Though I doubt McCarron even more than Johnny, that guy’s a tool lol.

  87. Patrick Says:

    Ok guys, just continue to watch boring and crappy quarterback play for years. I can’t believe some of you guys would rather watch McClown stink it up instead of draft a potential pro bowl franchise playmaking quarterback in the 1st round. How can anyone not be excited about Manziel??

  88. RustyRhino Says:

    What happens Patrick if the “potential” never happens? Did we help our team or hurt our team?
    Yes I do know that EVERY draft choice is a risk. How well did the last years great QB drafted in the first round do? Would you be happy with those results on his “potential” as he was hyped up before the draft.
    I also do not want a boring offense! I want a competitive offense, because we play against some good Defenses in the NFC South. I am not sold on any of the QB’s in this draft to come in and kick a$$ & take names this season, maybe with a year holding the clipboard taking notes and learning the differences between college and pro football.
    If we do draft Johnny Manziel I will be supportive, and wish him well. He would be a Buccaneer.
    Go Bucs!

  89. buc'd Up Says:

    If you think Joe will be upset if we don’t get JF, just wait til he finds out Rachel left with him.

  90. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Like a lot of players, Johnny Football is going to have a great career if he’s in the right system. If they try to make him into a pure pocket passer, then he’s probably going to bust. At the same time, if they run an offense like RG3 (spread option, putting him at risk on every play), then he’s going to get himself killed. However, if you put him in a system like a Russell Wilson, he’s going to flourish. The kid can run, throw, and win football games. It’s going to be tricky because you can’t put a leash on him, but he’s not going to survive playing the way he did in college. I don’t think anyone can argue that. All things considered, in my opinion he’s got too much upside to pas him up at #7, but I really don’t think he’ll be there at 7 anyway. Talents like him don’t come around too often, so I really don’t see 6 teams passing up on him.

  91. Buc1987 Says:

    From Don Banks of S.I. about the Bucs and McCown as he picked McCown as the #1 FA QB pick up this offseason.

    “This is no knock on Bucs incumbent Mike Glennon, who turned in some very commendable work as a rookie despite playing in a tough situation for an underachieving club that was nose-diving its way to 4-12. But there’s a reason McCown was the most sought-after quarterback in free agency, and it had a lot to do with him clearly having outplayed starter Jay Cutler in Chicago last year. We all saw the same thing, so let’s not even quibble any longer on that front.”

    “McCown’s game was undeniably boosted by the presence of Bears first-year head coach Marc Trestman in 2013, but it wasn’t all coaching and a QB-friendly offense that accounted for his success. The career journeyman didn’t fluke his way to 13 touchdowns against just one interception, with 1,829 passing yards and a 66.5 completion percentage in eight games. McCown played like a solid No. 1 quarterback, which is what he’ll be for the improved Bucs as they fight for a return to relevancy under new head coach Lovie Smith.”

    The season might not suck too bad….we’ll see.

  92. Buc1987 Says:

    Sorry Joe I posted the above on the wrong article my mistake. Damn whiskey!

  93. Buc1987 Says:

    I can’t believe I have to go into another season rooting for another Josh. When he drops back to pass I’ll be saying “come on Josh” just like I’ve been saying for the last 5 years. If he throws a pick? Same thing as the last 5 years “effing Josh”.

  94. Vico Says:

    Manziel offers the turnaround the bucs need as a franchise, and not necessarily this year. Thing is at least other 3 teams are looking for a qb to build around, the difference is the bucs are the better team from all those 4 suitors, so it is easier for them to gamble. I only fear the Texans getting him. It is clear that Watkins, Clowney and Mack are the best prospects allaround, and that Jags, Raiders and Browns should be taking a QB. this leads to all kinds of possible combinations but I think this is how it goes down: 1.Clowney 2.Watkins 3.Mack 4.Robinson/Matthews 5.Bortles 6.Robinson/Matthews 7.Manziel

    So it basically depends on who the Texas and Jags take. As division rivals they affect each other. Only if Houston drafts a Qb will the Jags be able to gamble on a QB, otherwise they are setting up a losing mismatch twice a year against Clowney. To me this is unlikely as QB prospects are no slam dunks, and the other Carr will weight as experience for Houston on drafting QBs at #1. So Texans take Clowney, which leads to Jags taking Mack. Theyll have both Macks, scary.

    The Browns then will choose matthews, Raiders will relive the past and think that with Bortles they will get their very own Big Ben, like “it should have been” and Atlanta doesn’t need competition for Ryan, they take Robinson. Manziel is gonna be there at #7, the question is if Lovie and Licht buy into the hype, this visit will determine that. If they don’t i hope they trade down to get garropolo and a wr instead of johnny.

    Joe, just because he’s flashy, a winner, etc. in college doesn’t mean it will translate well in the NFL. Remember Rodney Peete, and countless other hyped qb busts? I’m with Hoge on this one…feel he will be a bust, and we have bigger needs and can have more of an impact this year with the pick in other positions.

    HERE’S THE CAVEAT, HOWEVER: IF WE DO DRAFT MANZIEL, I’M NOT GOING TO BE LIKE THE IDIOT GLENNON MOB AND ACTUALLY GIVE THE JOHN A CHACE, AND SUPPORT THE GUY.

    Of course not, but with that logic, teams should go only after benchwarmers? A Brad Johnson-type who sat the bench in college only to lead a team to a Super Bowl win only happens, what, once every 40 years?

    Never has Joe written he thinks Johnny Football is a slam dunk. But Joe sure as hell would bet more cash he’d have an impact in the NFL over Mike Glennon or Geno Smith.

    “There is a lot of homo-erotic innuendo being projected on to Joe by quite a few you. Obsessive homo-erotic projecting…hmmm. You dudes are fooling no one.”

    Now THAT is funny. But still they keep obsessing. Shame shame.
