They were comments that spread like wildfire – if you haven’t seen or heard them by now, here they are:
“If something happens, and it’s the Cleveland Browns, I’m going to pour my heart out for the Dawg Pound and try to win a Super Bowl for Cleveland. I don’t care if they’ve had 20 starting quarterbacks since 1999. I’m going to be the 21st and the guy that brought them the Super Bowl.”
Those words come from Johnny Manziel – aka ‘Johnny Football’ the player that many Browns fans want the team to draft with the 4th pick in May’s NFL Draft.
He’s the player that a lot of Browns fans think will FINALLY turn the fortunes of the team from drowning to not only above water – but heading for the promise land.
BUT – before you start buying into Manziel, let’s make sure you read the REST of the story about what he was saying in the same breath about the Browns.
Check out THIS report at Texans Gab, which has comments about Manziel and his wish to go #1 overall to the Houston Texans.
Here’s what Manziel said about if the Texans DON’T take him with the first pick.
“It would be the worst decision they’ve ever made,” Manziel said. “I’d be in the same division playing against them twice a year. Sorry, but you just turned that chip on my shoulder from a Frito into a Dorito.”
That’s I guess assuming Manizel goes to where most football players go to die – the Jaguars.
So make sure that while Manziel is saying all the right things right now about the Browns, he still wants the honor of going one overall – which means all those nice things about Cleveland could be a smokescreen.
If there’s one thing about Manziel to this point – he’s smart. He seems to know what to say when, and while he wants the fandom of the Browns going in his direction, what he really wants is pretty simple.
