Manziel may already be proving that it was a mistake to bring him to Cleveland.


Head Coach Mike Pettine told reporters last week that many players party on their time off and that he does not view it as a big deal when it comes to Johnny Manziel. Are we really to believe that not only does Pettine not have real concerns about Manziel but that the organization as a whole is also not overly concerned? It's laughable on its face but also insulting to our intelligence as fans. How many players have been drafted significantly lower for their extra curricular activities off the field? Yes, many of those were drug or weapons related but isn't it time for us to start treating alcohol as a drug as well when it comes to these payed professionals? How many lives are lost each year by drunk drivers? One could argue that it is far more dangerous than many illegal drugs. I'm not saying that Manziel is drinking and driving but how many other incidents can stem from over use of alcohol? Let's take just one example: how long will it take before a credible woman accuses Manziel of sexually assaulting her while he or both of them were intoxicated in a club or bar. Whether it's true or not, it will affect not only him but the team as a whole if he is the starter at the time. Unless the Browns or Manziel can find a way to curb Manziel's partying ways: I have to conclude that bringing him into an organization with a rookie head coach, a rookie GM and an owner who liked him so much he made the call to draft him at #22 and you have put your team in a position where they can't win unless Manziel never becomes the starter or is traded away before he sets the whole organization back three more years. I hope he proves me wrong.
