Johnny “JFF” Manziel’s Slow Descent into Madness

Johnny Manziel is a legend and he’s 20 years old. In his opening season with Texas A&M last year, he lead the team to an epic win over Alabama during the season, demolished Oklahoma in the Cotton Bowl, and capped off the season as the first freshman Heisman trophy winner.

TrophyWeek 7 is in the books and the most interesting thing I’ve heard was a late bit of news that the Chargers got busted by a ref in their epic loss to the Broncos for cheating. Apparently they were using Stickum, which was banned in 1981. I guess when they put on those throwback powder blue uniforms they decided to play with a few of the throwback rules. Expect fines and a possible loss of draft picks when the punishment is handed down by the league office. “Rampaging” Roger Goodell is probably still smarting from giving up power in Bounty Gate to Tagliabue. On to week 7! Continue reading
