    Oh no, I wasn't suggesting drafting him (unless he fell to the 2nd round), I just think he's got the right attitude to handle playing against good defenses in the NFL

    It may be a smoke screen by the Browns but not by the Bears.

    To be honest I've watched a lot of his games & the kid is fun to watch. Anything could happen on any play with him at QB. I hope he gets drafted in the top 10 so another top player that we may be interested in falls to us. In fact I hope all but one of the top rated QBs goes in the top ten. Maybe a team who needs a QB freaks out & gives us a ridiculous trade offer. Not likely but stranger things have happened & something stranger probably will happen on day 1 of the draft.

    Sorry, but I just don't see it in Johnny. Like Mayock was saying that if you force him to be a pocket passer and play straight he has a good chance of beating himself. Trestman could work wonders with him mind you but I don't think he's durable.

    He needs to go to a team that runs a "Run & Gun" type system and not many do that plus he'd get killed if he tries to scramble and gets leveled by someone like Allen. He's no Fran Tarkington that's for sure.

    I have the feeling that Manziel could become another Tebow.

    He is either going to be an exceptional quarterback or a total bust. Just my personal opinion, the odds of Johnny Football being a bust vs being a stud area about 70-30 (or higher).

    Some are comparing him to Drew Brees. Manziel isnt necessarily a bust simply because he doesnt fit the prototypical QB mold. Admit it...if we didnt have Cutler, and were still bouncing between Rex and Orton, who wouldnt be the least bit excited to see Emery gamble and take a shot at Manziel if he dropped to us? Nobody can predict the success of a drafted QB.

    If the Bears were still bouncing between Orton and Rex after nearly a decade I'm not sure I could have still been watching. The very thought makes me feel queezy

    Sometimes I wonder how some of our past QB's would have performed with an offense loaded with our present talent and led by a solid offensive mind like Trestman. We all hate on Grossman now. But early in his career he had some talent. Talent that may have been developed better in our present situation. We'll never know. But I sometimes wonder about this.

    I think he would be a good fit for the high octane offense that Philly is running, he is great on his feet that would help spread out the defense but ya...I don't think he will do well in the NFL if dropped into a starter spot right away.
    I was a little surprised to hear Rice comparing him to a young Steve Young.
