Default Johnny Manziel not on Steelers' radar

Johnny Manziel not on Steelers' radar

June, 27, 2014
By Scott Brown | ESPN.com

PITTSBURGH -- As polarizing a figure as Johnny Manziel is, he can probably get Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers fans to agree on one thing.

The majority of fans on both sides would love to see him start Sept. 7 when the Browns visit Heinz Field for the regular-season opener between the bitter rivals.

Steelers season-ticket holders would pay double to see the quarterback who reached celebrity status before throwing his first NFL pass receive a baptism/comeuppance from Dick LeBeau’s defense.

Browns fans might be just as eager to see Manziel in Pittsburgh, though obviously for a different reason.

The Browns have gone through quarterbacks at an alarming rate since the NFL returned to Cleveland in 1999. They desperately need someone to stop the cycle, and Browns fans might want to see if Manziel can conjure up the magic that made him a legend at Texas A&M right from the start -- even if the circumstances for his NFL debut in Pittsburgh could be a recipe for disaster.

Manziel, speaking to Browns reporters at the NFL Rookie Symposium, said his goal is to start this season. But the former Heisman Trophy winner conceded that he is still well behind Brian Hoyer, who will enter training camp as the No. 1 quarterback.

I asked a handful of Steelers defensive starters before the end of offseason practices whether they would like to see Manziel under center for the season opener, and I didn’t get much more than a collective shrug of the shoulders.

“It don’t matter,” veteran cornerback Ike Taylor said. “We’re trying to win ballgames. It doesn’t matter who is at quarterback.”

Mike Mitchell agreed.

“To be honest I just want someone that’s going to throw me a pick,” the Steelers free safety said. “I don’t really care who it is. I want the quarterback that’s the most confident, the most prepared, so when I take it from him, no excuses. That’s what I want every week.”

Defensive end Cameron Heyward played his college ball at Ohio State, so he can understand, even if only to some degree, the scrutiny Manziel is already under in the Buckeye state.

“It’s tough. Everybody’s looking for him to mess up,” Heyward said. “He’s a great player. I wish him the best.”

So, would Heyward like to get the first crack at Johnny Football, so to speak?

“Whoever’s in there I’m going to have fun either way,” Heyward said with a smile.

He also gets made a fool of by dual-threat QBs. We'll see which tendency is greater.

Johnny Football also stays on the ground for a while when college players hit him. Let's see if he gets up after NFL players crush him..............He may not.

Shazier's going to crush Manziel in the first series that Manziel is on the field, and will cement himself into the hearts of Steelers fans across the globe.

His team just reprimanded him for basically doing too much partying. This Steelers defense will "knock him back sober". BUZZZ KILL EM""""

Cops called to party with Justin Bieber, Johnny Manziel and Floyd Mayweather
By Frank Schwab
14 hours ago
Shutdown Corner

"I want to wake up with a week and not have my name going through something." - Johnny Manziel, June 27, 2014 ... yep, just last Friday

How would you go about keeping your name out of the spotlight for your off-field activities? How about this plan: Go to Justin Bieber's house for a party that also includes Floyd Mayweather and other celebrities, and have the cops come out twice to Bieb's crib on noise complaints.

Very stealth there, Johnny Football.

A few days after Manziel complained that his Browns teammates were sick of answering questions about his partying, and he was too, the rookie quarterback won a game of social media bingo by getting Bieber Fever and hanging out with the pop star and Mayweather in Beverly Hills.

Bieber put a couple pictures on his Shots.com account.






TMZ said the party, also attended by recording artists Tyrese and Tyga and Bieber's maybe girlfriend Chantel Jeffries (Selena Gomez is furious, y'all), got so loud the Beverly Hills Police Department was called in twice early Tuesday morning. TMZ said the first time the cops came was because the music was too loud, the second time was because "packs of young girls" were screaming outside of Bieber's condo for him.

Ridiculous enough for you yet?

Look, if Johnny got the Bieber Fever and wanted to hang out with the pop star, cool. Good for him. But it's just not going to fly to play the "I can't go anywhere without people taking pictures!" card and then a few days later go party with Justin freaking Bieber, which is basically like giving TMZ a personal invitation to document your night out.

I still don't really care what Manziel does with his own time, but by this point he knows the consequences. If you go out and party at Bieber's place in Beverly Hills, there is about a zero percent chance that you're not going to draw a ton of attention for it. If that's what you want, that's fine. But don't act surprised when it happens.

And then I envision Manziel, upon seeing #50 on the 2nd series, doubling back but hitting the brick wall that is the new #91.... SPLAT!
