    What has Bortles and Bridgewater done with THEIR down time? Don't know? NO ONE knows, because they don't have a thousand people snapping pictures of them on a daily basis. The only question I have of Manziel is, can he succeed on the field? Until we know that, all of this is just a "slow football news" day blitz.

    He reminds me of a wealth of football players, some busts, some hall of famers if I consider his off the field antics. But all of that means squat... if he can take his ability to the next level, people will be cheering him on; if he can't, they will mock him. Only time will tell.
    Well if I was just starting a multi million dollar high profile job where I needed to learn an entire new offense, and could be out of a job in a year, I would not be partying like a rock star, I would be studying the play books and preparing my body for what is to come. I do not care how confident I was.

    But you are correct, if he can perform nobody will care.

    Well sometimes you expect Beiber to be in his own house from time to time

    His most recent high-profile act of partying — a visit to Justin Bieber’s house only a few days after reports surfaced that the Browns want Manziel to tone it down — has a wrinkle that could go awry for Manziel, if he makes a habit of hanging out with young pop stars. Per a source who briefly attended the soiree, underage girls were present at the Bieber party

    But hey Manziel was partying with Beiber's ex the week before

    I can't believe how we're talking about a qb who has never taken the first snap and who doesn't even play for the Vikings. I don't give a flying f__k about no Johnny Manziel. He's not a Viking. To me he's just another qb in the league who has yet to earn his contract.

    I think it is because this reeks of a love boat type scandal and we are happy we got a bridge over that troubled water.

    And everyone is making the comparison:

    Hm... let's see... We gave up a second round pick for Bridgewater. Did we give up any 1st round picks? No, we didn't. Ergo, we gave up a second round pick for Bridgewater. :P

    No ... we basically gave up a fourth rounder for him ... the second rounder does not matter ... it is replaced by the first rounder ... the fourth rounder is what we gave up to move up.

    It is correct though ... people who claim we gave up a 2nd and 4th to get him are a little off ... because we did not trust him to be at the second ... we SWAPPED the second and GAVE UP a fourth.

    Or used a 4th round pick to move up 9 spots

    That's how I look at it. We only "gave up" the 2nd rounder in the sense that we gave up our #8 for Barr.
