Start questioning the Manziel hype  

eNewsReference.com By : Staff Reporting

Do all of the naysayers about Johnny Manziel have something to hang their hats on after his dismal performance on Sunday? If you’ll remember there were a lot of analysts saying he couldn’t make it in the big league.

Some said a first round selection would be too high in the draft. What is very apparent is he’s not the day-one QB some were hoping for. Where it counted the most, against a division rival and with playoff aspirations in the mix, he failed miserably.

The Cincinnati, who have had troubles of their own this season, were able to dictate the game and shut the Heisman QB out the entire game. Johnny Football was a non-factor.

Every defensive coordinator will look at the tapes from his poor performance against the Bengals to get insights on getting in Manziel’s head. Is he a conversation piece? Yes. Does he sell seats? Yes. But the real question is can he perform in the NFL? And this has yet to be seen.

I know some of you are defending him. You’re saying, give him time or he shouldn’t be expected to perform after being on the bench all season. My response to you all is, didn’t he sell the narrative that he’s spectacular. Tebow was supposed to be spectacular too.
