    That fairy accounted for almost 10,000 yards and 93 TDs in two years. 2,000 of those yards and 30 of those 93 touchdowns coming while he was running like a "fairy".

    But please do tell me why you like Jimmy G other than you read a couple scouting reports and he might be available round 2? Nobody hear knew who Jimmy G was before this season ended and now everyone acts like they watch him play and he's awesome.

    I think locker and Johnny are rather similar. Wish we had someone to compete with and push locker .

    I've watched multiple Jimmy G games. He looks pretty alright with me. As a player, not sure I'd spend a 2nd on him, but that's the value of QBs for ya.

    Like this is a guarantee for a successful NFL career....Tebow's stats at Florida were quite similar to Manziel's. Also, Mike Evans bailed him out so many times it is ridiculous.
    I would like to see Manziel on a team like the Raiders with below average WRs. Who is going to catch his arm punts?

    I really don't understand the Bortles hype. I think he just has the idea size you want in a QB... and that's it.

    I am not even going to take you seriously after you brought up Tom Brady in a Manziel discussion. :nono:

    I'm not even going to take you seriously after comparing JM to Tim Tebow.

    the "Mike Evans" bailed him out argument is so stupid. When you have a big tall receiver that can jump higher than any defender and bring the ball down, it's not a bad idea to throw them a jump ball, it's using height/athleticism to your advantage.

    Stafford has won games doing this with Calvin Johnson. It's not like Manziel is throwing ducks and praying someone is there, he's recognizing the mis match and putting it up there for Evans to come down with.

    Put UW on the map? Back in the 90s Washington was an elite program. What are you 15 years old? Well you actually are that young.

    And taking a team to 6-6 type records is hardly putting them on the map.
