    Cam Newton, Johnny Manziel and Jameis Winston go out to dinner with each other one night and leave without paying. The waiter chases them down and confronts them.

    Manziel says, "I didn't sign anything." Winston says, "I didn't take anything." Newton says, "I don't know anything."

    hard not to be a MM fan, but IMO at this point he has to prove it

    I literally do see any 'love'. The most 'love' you get is someone proclaiming he is great on ST and that they hope he can get a roster spot. Hardly 'love'.

    I don't believe he's going to make the team with just special teams this year. He's gotta prove to be a wr that can come in and play. End of story.

    Mariani gets "hate"? If anything it seems like the size of his fanbase/popularity goes wayyyyyy beyond his actual skill level. I get that he's a likable guy with a good story. But I can't remember the last time such a marginal talent was so revered by our fans.

    Return skills were pro bowl level at one point. I wouldn't be so quick to say marginal talent. Talent at WR... Yes. But he's also been killing Campbell so far at camp. Lol

    Tommie Campbell is also Chris Henry playing DB. Freak size & athletic ability, but he just can't quite play football.

    I believe either Washington or Mariani make the team because of special teams alone this year.

    My reasoning:

    You said yourself that you don't think he can make the roster on return skills alone this year. If you can't make a roster or are on the bubble I think it's fair to say you're a marginal talent (unless you're cut for off-the-field/character concerns, etc.). That said, I see where you're coming from. He was a pro bowler once upon a time. But that was ages ago, in football years.

    And Campbell sucks lol.
