    Re: Interesting How Johnny Football Ended Up At Texas A@M

    Plain and simple he ended up at A&M because Mack Brown is a BLITHERING idiot.

    Mack kind of offered him to come as a corner or saftey.

    Mack can't coach. Nick can. Their both paid 5 mill +

    Texas has Mack locked up till 2020. Here is hoping they extend him further.

    That's a perfect example of recruiting by the numbers. JF didn't have the "numbers" to play quarterback for Texas. What I mean by that is he didn't have the physical characteristics that they were looking for. It happens all the time. You can't really blame them too much because judging future potential is a really, really hard thing. A&M took a chance on him and struck gold. I actually think it's kind of neat that he proved them all wrong.

    In the first quarter we did not contain the backside. We also only had three down lineman. Johnny exploited that and when he gets open in space he is hard to bring down. I think he is a great player but he is no Cam Newton. He also has two NFL first rounders protecting him at tackle. Once we adjusted we handled them pretty well shutting them down in the red zone.

    I think our guys got caught up in the LSU win as we were obviously not playing at our best. Couple that with a beat up QB and defense and you get a loss in Nov when the other team is playing their best FB.

    Manziel doesn't have the size or style the NFL likes so we probably will be watching him play (and improve) for another 3 years. Maybe he will get tired of football and just play baseball.

    You're right, he's no Cam Newton - He is faster, more elusive, and more accurate, he was also $186,000 cheaper than Cam Newton. (Cam is bigger, and stronger, and has a more powerful arm)
