Biggest Bust [Y-not]

No, I'm not talking about CBD's Food Thread!

I mean this guy:

Johnny Manziel threw a party Friday night that was attended by multiple members of the Cleveland Browns, triggering a tumultuous weekend during which several players were punished by the team, according to multiple reports.

Receiver Josh Gordon, who was suspended Saturday for a violation of team rules, was one of the players in attendance, according to cleveland.com.

The Browns also fined Manziel on Saturday for being late for treatment on his injured hamstring, a source told ESPN. Less than 24 hours later, rookie cornerback Justin Gilbert was deactivated for Sunday's season finale against the Baltimore Ravens after missing a team meeting the previous night, a source told ESPN.

Josh Gordon was one of several Browns players who attended a party thrown Friday night by Johnny Manziel, according to a report. Gordon was suspended Saturday for missing a team walk-through.

Both Manziel and Gordon were absent from the Browns' walk-through on Saturday morning, and the team had trouble locating them, a source close to the team told ESPN.

There have been rookies with terrible attitudes.

There have been rookies with questionable skills.

Has there ever been a highly drafted rookie QB with such a gawdawful combination of both?


Open thread until the next one comes along.

34 So since this is an open thread I'll poll the horde. I mentioned in earlier thread today that my grandpa survived Pork Chop Hill. I didn't realize this, because he certainly never mentioned it, but he is actually a character in the Gregory Peck movie about it. I've never seen it, and I'm wondering if I should watch it. On one hand, it would be interesting to see his history, but on the other he steadfastly refused to talk about those days (other than to profess a strong hatred of the Chinese) so it feels like sort of an invasion of his privacy, even though he died years ago and would obviously never know.

So, would you watch a movie based on one of the worst parts of a family members life?

Posted by: Lauren at December 28, 2014 07:46 PM (pfylN)

35 This has been a dream season for the anti-Johnny Manziel crowd. He fucked up in every way possible. On the field, off the field, managed to even bring other players down with him. He needs to go to some sort of fucking boot camp this winter, in a last ditch effort to rescue his name, or he's going to be right along Ryan Leaf and Brian Bosworth as loud mouth do-nothings.

The thing is, I wasn't "anti Manziel." I had nothing against the dude. I knew he had behavior issues, but they're much worse than I'd imagined.

I feel badly for Cleveland but I think they should give him one last chance to make the team in Spring Training and cut him if he blows it.

Guys like Manziel or Tebow or RGIII have always had that question mark about their styles of play not being pro-style. I just don't remember about Leaf.

RG3 is uncoachable. His instincts are bad. He can't read defenses. He holds the ball too long. He has zero pocket awareness. When he tries to run under pressure, he has no moves. Say what you want about Colt McCoy, he can scramble around a bit, but RG3 has no escape moves because he thinks his speed will make him escape.

He hasn't learned that he is no longer playing against weak Big12 defenses.

I never root against college kids, I guess because I'm old enough that they just seem like such "kids", it's hard to get all hot and bothered over them doing dumb stuff. I was in the hopeful-for-Manziel camp, not only because he was a blast to watch in college, but because Cleveland needs something, anything, to go right for them. This year, Johnny deserves all the crap he gets. He's a pro, and he's acting like a chump.

19 year old kid makes a bad play in front of 75K people and on TV in front of millions of people. No way you criticize that.

It's also why I don't think a 4 or 5 star college recruit that doesn't do much in college is a "bust". He was being graded on playing against 15 and 16 year olds, and now is playing against 21 and 22 year olds.

Worst thing that young QB's can do is going to these "QB Guru's" during the offseason. The guru's teach them what they think they should do, not what the coach wants them to do.

One of RG3's problems is that he listens more to his QB guru instead of his head coach who actually coaches in the NFL.

99 Here's my dawg story:

I was taking care of my friend's Shepherd/Rottweiler mix while friend was out of town. This was a trained attack dog who, if he didn't know you, would rip your throat out as an introduction. Jabba the Mutt loved me just as much as his owner.

I go to my friend's house and can't get the door open. He had two locks but only gave me the doorknob key. Strangely, the deadbolt was locked. I could hear Jabba on the other side, in a bit of distress, IYKWIM.

I'm standing on the front porch on the phone to 'splain to friend, he said, "Jabba probably locked it, he does that. Just tell him to unlock the door."

Yeah, sure.

So I tell Jabba to unlock the door. A few seconds pass, then I hear the deadbolt rattle. Another rattle and I try the key again. Viola! I open the door and the dog gratefully runs past me into the front yard to relieve himself.

He was also notorious for locking himself in the bathroom.

108 Manziel played one game where he went 10 for 18 where 3 of the incompletions should have been caught . The defense gave up 250 rushing yards which resulted in only 38 plays from scrimmage for the Browns. Funny that Bortles went 14 for 33 for 117 yards today and all the comments by the pundits on him were that he has shown great potential. Every rookie QB who has started most if not all the season have losing records but Manziel loses one game and he's done. Back to Brooklyn 99.

When I was a young punk living at my sister's house, I had a lab that would grab me a beer when requested (kept in ice in the sink), close the front door when rude friends came to visit, and fetch a brick (yes, the kind you build houses out of).
He had a brick he started playing with - it became his toy. I used to take him to the beach, throw it in the ocean, and he'd go bring it back. I'm sure there are many Canadian tourists out there with videos, because he was popular back in the eighties.

****


I don't know anything about the movie, but without some sense of personal context other than "Grandpa was there", it might not be a very useful exercise, but you never know until you try.

What I have found interesting about my Dad's diary is his daily observations, sometimes almost casually, about pretty significant events. He was in HQ of VI Artillery so had to have a pretty good working knowledge of the big picture on the beachhead. On the day when the German counterattack came within a whisker's breadth of collapsing the thin line of defense along the Albano road, Dad's diary entry was:


"This is war as you hear about it. Gerry pushed more and more infantry against 1st Br and 45th [1st British Division and 45th U.S. Division]. Some tanks. Artillery fire everywhere. Infiltration parties penetrated our line several places but generally our line held. No great concern."

The Manning's QB school is great for high school kids, but NFL QB's need NFL coaching.

Not so stellar as Manziel and Leaf, but a number-one draft choice. So he'd definitely a denizen of the bust league (and I don't mean the LFL).

He really should have stayed down at A and M for another year. Or barring that should have sat this entire year. His attitude demonstrates that. Did you hear about any of the other rookie QBs being late for meetings, or holding parties the Friday night before a game?

Another year of maturity and a full offseason would have done him a lot of good.

247 Cade McCown. He was taken in the first round by the Bears. Was super cocky and was never close to backing it up. Questionable skills, terrible attitude. His downfall wasn't as bad as Leaf or Jamarcus, though. He's a VP of an investment house of some kind now.

Ryan Leaf had the physical tools but wound up either hurting his wrist, or else had some kind of degenerative condition in his wrist, on the throwing hand that really killed his ability to throw the ball. He was viewed by many leading up to that draft as having a higher upside than Manning as he was more mobile, though most agreed Manning was the surer bet. Very similar to the Luck/Griffin draft in that respect.

Posted by: Lauren at December 28, 2014 07:46 PM (pfylN)


I suggest you watch the movie. It is actually pretty well done and I remember reading somewhere that, for pre-production, a trench system was recreated for the movie. It is fairly gritty without dwelling on the carnage.

Don't feel guilty about watching the movie. My Old Man fought in Vietnam, saw combat and was severely wounded. He has told us almost nothing about his experiences over there but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a well-done war flick.

War movies are one way of expressing our appreciation for what warriors do for us.

281 258 He was viewed by many leading up to that draft as having a higher upside than Manning as he was more mobile, though most agreed Manning was the surer bet. Very similar to the Luck/Griffin draft in that respect.
Posted by: Paul Kroenke at December 28, 2014 09:38 PM (a0LHn)

Of course then he was asked what he would do the next day if he were drafted number. And his answer was go to Vegas. Now I can't remember what Manning's answer to that question was but it probably involved something football related.

He does have decent passer skills but he doesn't know or want to operate in the pocket.

He's one good hit away from being done in the NFL.

Johnny football has one more shot so he better not screw it up but since he seems to have fallen in to the balla lifestyle he probably whiff on it.

He comes from a super rich family so at least he's got options when his football career come to a screeching halt.

His running style leads to the injuries. He has all kinds of straightaway speed, but he has zero elusiveness. Compare him to Luck. Luck is a little bit slower, but he can elude the pass rush, RG3 can't.

Hell, Colt McCoy is more elusive than RG3.

After some of the hits he received his first 2 years, you would think that he would work with someone on something so simple as sliding, but he hasn't. He still cannot slide to save his life.

Posted by: Buzzion at December 28, 2014 10:20 PM (z/Ubi)



Peyton only started doing all the commercials after he became "OMGPeyton Manning". The first couple of years are the most important for a pro athlete. That is the time when they learn the ins and outs of the pro game, get adjusted to the speed, and start playing at the speed of the pro game. Lot's can't make the transition because of physical reasons, others because they didn't because of the mental part of the game.

Pro seasons are longer. In the pros, you are playing against people that do this for 365 days a year. This is their livelihood. The mental part of the game grinds players down more than the physical part. They are used to the physical drain, but not the mental drain. In college, teams play 12 regular season games, usually with 2 open weekends a season. If they are lucky, they may get a conference championship game and then a bowl game for a 14 game season. Teams playing in the NC game, will play 15 games with about 5 weekends off total.

Pro teams play 16 games in the regular season with one weekend off. Then, if lucky, they can play up to 4 more games in the playoffs for a total of 19-20 games with 2-3 weeks off during that span.

The college team can also dress 75 scholarship players for a game. Pro teams can dress 46. You don't have a dedicated backup for most of the line positions, you have a guy that can play 2 of the positions, and another that can play 3 of the positions.
