Johnny Manziel Playbook

Johnny Manziel like any rookie has a big learning curve. The Heisman winner admitted that learning curve earlier today:

It’s a process for me. It’s not something that I should just come in here naturally because I played well in college and just know how to run this offense.

It’s a complete 180 from everything that I’ve been used to. And it’s going to take time. It’s a process coming from a spread, air raid system in college to a pro style system that’s very unfamiliar [to] me as far as terminology and routes.

Right now, it’s me versus the playbook and there’s nothing else.’

That all makes sense but then GM Ray Farmer’s thoughts were shared via Ian Rapaport:

This isn’t all that surprising but I can’t help but wonder if those nights and weekends partying are catching up with Johnny. He has given himself zero room for error with his off field activities so he only has himself to blamed for the conclusions drawn from these reports. Right now it sounds like Hoyer will get the nod but it’s early in camp.
