    I don't understand what the hell is wrong with him taking that picture? I can't imagine any team would pass on drafting him because he took a picture with Dez Bryant. If that is the criteria they are using to set up their draft board, they are pretty freaking stupid.

    meh, I'm not really a big fan of Manziel, but this is not a big deal. Bryant is a stud of a receiver that plays for a team in Johnny's home state. Why wouldn't you get your picture taken with him? Plus, there are rumors that if he falls far enough, that Dallas might be interested as a Romo replacement.

    I can't stand the draft being expanded and pushed back two weeks.

    I'm down for some ball but this coverage is enough to make a Kardashian blush. I lived in Dallas when TO was there and the coverage almost ruined ball for me.

    The games are enough reality TV for me. This other stuff is really pushing me to rethink the NFL

    Agreed, How is taking a pic with Bryant a big concern? Its not like they were smoking, drinking in it or anything.

    Kids fail the drug test at the combine, but Manziel gets shat on for taking a picture with a top 5 NFL WR.

    This pic wouldn't concern me as an NFL GM.

    Manziel's playing ability though, definitely would. I wouldn't touch him with a 20 ft pole if I were an NFL GM.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the kid's competitiveness, I just don't see him as being a successful NFL QB. I just don't.

    I know that picture alone is not a huge deal but why reinforce a negative reputation at this point.

    Yeah he is basically dealing drugs and waving a gun around while getting kicked out of an Indian casino.

    Dont' talk about him going to the Cowboys. I am not necessary a Manziel fan either, but if he dropped to the 'Boys. Man a chip on his shoulder to motivate him. I like that, I really like that. That said now that I have dreamed about it it won't happen, or if it does he will get caught with coke or something and be out of the league in 2 years.

    I don't blame Manziel, the kid got to live a life that most of us only dream of. We all make stupid mistakes at that age. He seems to always show up and play well, and that is ultimately what matters.

    You nailed it. So many of his snaps devolved into playground junk plays, where he ran around in the backfield, narrowly avoiding pressure, only to toss up a prayer that 6'5 Mike Evans would come down with. Don't get me wrong, that makes for exciting football, but you can't expect that kind of thing to continue to be successful in the NFL. I think he'll have some highlights, but I also think he's going to toss a lot of INTs in the pros.

    The Browns are gonna take him and it's gonna be glorious. I've fully bought into him now. At first I was hesitant.

    I think the only person who would cause a stir about this picture of of Manziel is Donald Sterling.

    The Browns are the Browns are the Browns. They'd find a way to turn Peyton Manning into a 4-12 quarterback.

    I'm 1000% sure that picture will have 0.000000% affect on his draft stock.

    A future NFL draft pick getting his picture taken with a current NFL receiver for the Dallas Cowboys reinforces a negative reputation? Do go on...

    (Just kidding, please don't) Your Manziel hate is showing hardcore today. I am not a Manziel fan, fairly indifferent if anything. But your comments are just...blind hate. If you really find something that wrong with that picture, you sir are:

    I'm on the Cleveland Hype Train for sure this year. Normally I am more reserved but we have one of the easier schedules, an elite receiver, top 5 defense, and if our O-Line stays healthy it can protect a quarterback. We saw flashes of this last season when we won 3 in a row at the beginning of the year.

    Browns are making the Playoffs. Book it danno

    They've got some work to do after a slow start. According to your signature they are already 0-2. :jimlad:

    How is taking a freaking picture with one of the best NFL WRs reinforcing a negative reputation?

    Is that the first time that someone ever said something from Cleveland was "glorious?"

    I guess it could count that people say "What a glorious day I am leaving Cleveland."
