    The Rams take Johnny Manziel @ #2.... What is your reaction?

    Over the last few months I have taken on a less active role here at the Clan, and though I have remained a reader of the quality posts I have not contributed much myself.

    However, on the eve of the Draft I think someone needs to pose the question: What if the Rams take Manziel? What if the smokescreen isn't a smokescreen at all, but 'genuine' interest? Would you question Fisher & Snead's thinking? Would you be in an uproar? What would your overall reaction be?

    I am very curious to hear what some of you have to say. As I have the last few years, I will be attending the draft and must say this is the most excited I have been yet. Sitting on the 2 & 13, and having no idea what we're going to do is pretty awesome.

    P.S. - This is my official comeback post.

    Then, after a day or two, I'd accept it.

    Not like I'd have a choice.

    There better be a trade announcement shortly. Frankly I think they should go defense with the first two picks, some combination of DT OLB CB or S not in that order. If they did that, I'd be fine if they went OL with the next 10 picks honestly. The D needs a few more pieces, so finish it with top talent. Bailey showed enough late in the season that I'm ok with him at WR, and this is the make a break year for Quick. Drafted those guys for a reason. Hell I'm still upset the old regime took Jason Smith over Crabtree! Grrrr...finish off the defense!

    Is that a pic of the first player who's body is broken in half before 20 million viewers, after dodging one defender and leaving himself completely open for the 2nd and 3rd defensive players.

    First I would go to the fridge and grab a half liter Belgien Beer with 10% alcohol that I have saved for a rainy day. That should take the worst pain.

    After that I will go in denial a few days, and then I will begin telling everybody around my that this is the year the Rams go all the way as I do each year after the draft (but this year probably with a little less conviction that usually),

    1. Drive to sporting goods store.
    2. Purchase ice skates
    3. Learn to ice skate
    4. Go to hell and ice skate..........because it has frozen over.

    I would be waiting to hear the Rams have traded Bradford to the Vikes for at least a first and a second this year. At the completion of the draft and looking at all the new talent I would try and get ready to roll with Johnny.

    I wouldn't be mad, because that would simply mean that they think Johnny can and will be a franchise QB and can win a Superbowl. At the end of the day they are the ones running the team and working 20 hours a day with these guys. They'd get a pick for a QB who has certainly disappointed and would work with one of the most exciting players in college football history.

    I like Johnny because everyone else hates him. I hope he succeeds.. I don't understand why everyone dislikes him so much. So he parties? So what.. The guys 20 years old and is a superstar football QB at a massive school, damn right he want's to enjoy it. So what he meets celebrities... The guy is a celebrity himself.

    I dont' mind it so much if we get something for Bradford. I don't want to carry 2 QBs.

    If we can trade Bradford for a high pick and Decide to move forward with 3 young guys:

    Manziel, WR, OT in draft, so be it...I just FO/Fisher

    Well since all of my reaction gifs are apparently too large to use, I'll just have to I'd be really disappointed and would (for the first time) genuinely question whether Fisher/Snead can take the team past mediocre.

    I don't dislike Manziel. He seems to be a pretty genuine kid who really loves football. But IMO he'll be a turnover machine his first couple of years at least. He's exciting to watch, but relied on luck in college more than he'll be able to in the NFL. I'll definitely be watching him play next year, I just hope it's on another team.
