manziel plays like it's madden....the nfl not
What does that even mean?Quote:
haven't seen bradford throw a prayer just because without looking
Not that I'm advocating the Rams drafting Manziel (although I wouldn't mind as long as it's not in the first round), but do you even follow college football? Because if you did, you'd know Manziel completed 68 % of his passes last year. This year his completion rate is 73 %. Hardly the numbers of someone just "playing like it's Madden".Quote:

considering college success isn't on par with the pro's its a valid thought...look at Tebow.
Manziel is just another jock thriving from the spread...by and large that still in no way translates to pro success for a QB ...last year was the shock value of the option. Wont happen again until all the pansy anti- defense rules are in place and flag football is the norm
he'll run away from pressure, back and fourth, and then when he runs out of room, he's had some no look passes....and they worked, mainly cause the A&M receivers were really good at three flags up...
won't work in the nfl, and especially not the rams
and yes, die hard SC fan
i don't follow CFB as a whole (thanks NCAA for killing hope i have for fair play)
as much as i used to anyway
but it's the way he's completing these pass, nfl guys can't scramble for ages every down and just hurl one up there and expect his receivers to always come through, NFL DBs will see to that
The highlight plays you refer to a far from a majority of his passing plays, they're just the plays that make the highlight reels. Most scouts agree that he has excellent accuracy on short and intermediate passes. The questions are regarding his size and arm strength. Keep in mind he's only a sophomore.
You may be right, he could very well flop in the NFL...but to predict that at this point is kind of premature in my opinion. He's running way less this season than last year and the consensus is that his skills at reading a defense are much improved over last season. I guess we'll see what happens.
1st- Matthews or Lewan
1st(b)- HaHa Dix
2nd Gabe Jackson - G
3rd Carr or Fales
Matthews or Lewan could step in and start at RT until we part ways with Long. He isn't signed to a huge amount of guaranteed money or very long term. Dix is a huge need and Jackson will step in and start right away. Carr and Fales are talented with huge upside, sit for a year or two behind Sam and at worst they are a solid backup. At best if Sam isn't retained after his contract is up have a chance to play.
not a very strong arm imo and if he thinks he can do the same thing in college he'll get hurt like RGIII
also he's a RS soph so he's draft eligible
