Default Do it for Johnny!!!

Might as well start this now seeing as things in my estimation don't look very promising. We've lost key players, we won't have Bell for awhile. Heath is out still. Our QB cannot put points on the board and our coaching blows. I see maybe 5 wins this season...6 if we get lucky. That should put us in the discussion for Johnny Manziel. Yeah, I know. We already have a franchise QB and didn't we just draft Jones to be the future? To the first I will say he looks better this year. But I think it will be wasted on the team around him. While I see maybe 3 more quality seasons out of Ben I don't think the team will be very good around him. His cap number will be onerous, he is getting older, and our line sucks. To the second, Jones might have promise but he is not in the same league as Manziel. So if we do in fact get the worst record I say it's a no brainer we take Johnny.

I know, there are many clamoring for Clowney who has looked pedestrian so far this season. I don't see the fit in a 3-4. I also don't like Bridgewater as much as Johnny. So, putting aside whether you think we will be that bad, and holding back the insulting fairweather fan go root for some other team b.s. If we do end up with the first pick are we taking Johnny?

We probably split against BAL, we should beat OAK, CLE maybe twice. We have a good chance to beat the Jets, MINN, or DET. But none of those are a given either. I just don't see any easy for sure victories besides one versus CLE.

Steelers have prided themselves with continuity, stability and patience throughout their history. Making irrational, emotional decisions will not take you far. Ask the Browns.

I don't think that Johnny is eligible for the draft until after next season.

I don't believe in "throwing in the towel" after one game.

We just may go 15-1, Ben there, done that.
