Drew Brees: I love Manziel and I believe he will be a successful NFL starting QB



quote:

So perhaps no current player in the NFL knows what’s in store for Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel — and what kind of NFL career the Heisman winner can have — better than Brees. And when it comes to Johnny Football, consider Brees a fan.

“He is a heckuva player,” Brees told FOXSports.com in a telephone interview. “He’s fun to watch. He makes all kinds of plays.

“He’s got all the playmaking ability to be a great player. [There are] guys like [Manziel] in this league. Russell Wilson and his ability to run the football and extend plays outside the pocket and throw the ball down the field. Intermediate [routes], I mean he can do it all.”

Most importantly, Brees thinks the third-year sophomore who most expect will declare for the NFL after this season has the most necessary of intangibles — the ability to take control of a huddle and lead an NFL offense. When asked if Manziel, who is listed at 6-foot-1, could be a starter at the next level, Brees put it simply: “Yeah, absolutely.”

“There’s way too much weight put into physical stature as opposed to can you find the open guy,” Brees said. “Can you deliver it accurately? Can you make plays? Can you lead your team to victory? Can you lead them? Period.”

Brees is right. If any small qb has a shot at success in the NFL it's Manziel. The kid is phenomenal.

Manziel's arm is sub par, he has off the field issues, he's ugly as frick with a giant arse nose and volcanoes all over his face, and his receiver always bails him out. He'll be a raging failure in the NFL.

When Drew Brees says love, is he talking in the biblical sense?

If you're comparing him to guys like Favre and Bledsoe, sure. He has a stronger arm than a lot of star QBs in history.

Jeff George had, unanimously among scouts, the strongest arm anyone has ever seen. Dude could throw the ball 70 yards on a rope and launched an 84 yarder at the combine. What did he amount to? Meanwhile, Roger Staubach never threw a ball more than 55 yards in the air and he was the greatest ever at the time of his retirement.
