Manziel Mania

May 16, 2014 - Kim Collette
Cleveland Browns are on the clock and.....with the 22cnd pick of the NFL draft choose....Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M University. "Johnny Football" is now a Cleveland Brown. did that happen? Manziel in brown and orange? Manziel by lake Erie doing his money sign? This can't be right, can it? A week after the draft it has finally sunk in, we now have "Johnny Cleveland." Love him or hate him, he has brought Cleveland Browns football back to the forefront of almost every NFL discussion. He has generated a buzz that was desperately needed for Browns football. Do you think Browns fans are desperate for a winner? Only 20 hours after drafting Manziel, there were 2,300 tickets sold. Manziel has the top selling jersey. (The NFL won't release actual numbers but have said that Manziel's jersey has sold more than RGIII, Andrew Luck and Tim Tebow combined on their draft day.) A Cleveland company already has a Johnny Manziel "Money" shirt. Obviously it remains to be seen whether Manziel's game play will transfer from the college level to the pro level. He could be an Andrew Luck story or a Tim Tebow story. If he follows the Luck career path, he will go down as a legend in Cleveland. If he follows the Tebow route, things could get ugly very quickly. Browns fans are nothing if not vocal! Either way, Browns fans better buckle up for a very interesting and entertaining ride. Johnny Football it is.

Interestingly enough, I haven't heard much from my Steelers' friends since the BROWNS took Manziel. I think they are wondering, as much as we BROWNS fans, how this is going to work out.
