    Manziel is a very talented kid and he really can throw it pretty accurately, I just don't think his gunslinger attitude is going to work so well for him in the NFL. He will certainly be fun to watch, but he might not win many games.

    In other words, are you saying Fran Tarkenton would not have succeeded in the NFL today?

    I want to know why he's hanging out with a shirtless Dez. That's weird, I don't care who you are

    The gunslinger attitude seemed to work just fine for the Favre...

    Yeah, this kind of says it. I was expecting something crazy when I opened the link. Drunk in a club or something. Hell, if this is criteria for a bad reputation, I better find that picture I took with Johnny Orr in 2001 at the Independence Bowl and get rid of it, since we are each holding beers in the picture.

    I know its not a charity or anything, but still a cool move by an athlete. I'm sure you'll find someway to knock it though.


    Dez is promoting childhood obesity/violence by buying children these video game systems!!!
