Manziel Debate


Recommended Posts

BigDave I've seen Manziel lusted at 5'10" as recent as November. So either he's grown 3" in a month or one of those is wrong. Have you ever heard of a players size being exaggerated? He is closer to 5'10" then 6'1".

Do you ever read the posts you are quoting? I said it is possible his height could be exaggerated. Can you tell me with certainty that Ponder's height at 6'-2" is not being exaggerated as well?

Bortels/McCarron may be there in the early 3rd as well...probably not though.

Bortels is moving up the draft boards fast. Both CBS mock drafts have him going number 7 overall so if he is the guy we want, we would have to take him with our first pick.

This argument isnt about Ponder. IF his is exaggerated, which it may be, he is still probably over 6 feet. When someone lists 5'10" or 5'11", then how tall are they really?

Maybe he has a pituitary gland issue where he continues to grow past maturity...

Big Dave, calling somebody out for using an article over a year old... Classic. Only when its in your favor huh? Or I should say "think" its in your favor. It seems every link you post can contradict your beliefs.

Give up on the height issue, we all know he aint 6'1". 5'11" tops in his cleats he's probably just shy of 6'1"

That's not the reason he wont be successful. Its his non transitional game, dink and dunk, jump balls, speed of an NFL defense, throwing technique, off field, etc..

When you are talking about the difference between a 19 or a 21 year old kid, yeah 1 year makes a big difference. I'm sure with all your wisdom you do know that some people grow until they are 25 years old, right?

I will see what I can find between my games of candy crush.

It clearly has an update from 12/12/13. While I would agree some of the info is dated how do you know that his height wasn't one of them updated?

Besides quoting a team roster I would hardly call that a reputable source. That's the oldest trick in the book to alter data there.

On Sportscenter this morning, McShay predicts Jonny Football gets drafted #4 by Cleveland.

Thats just a screen so they can take MLB. We all know no one will take QB in the first round, that would be like drafting a punter in the first round.

I think Bridgewater goes #1, and Manziel goes 3, or 4. Vikings will draft Carr at #8. But I would really prefer either Bridgewater, or Manziel.

Just about all the mock drafts have 4 of the first 8 picks being qb's. Not sure how these clowns have jobs. Everyone knows the first 15, possibly 20 picks should be MLB's, it is the most important position on the field.

There have been few times I can remember a QB having that much time to throw the ball. Little baby Johnny has almost 5 seconds on every play. What is he going to do when he gets to the NFL and its twice as fast. The little pu$$Y looks like he needs his pacifier on the sideline.

Ha! 6'1" my silly-me! He stood next to his wide receiver mike Evans (6'5") and he was a SOLID 8 inches shorter. The top of his head didn't even come up to Evans jaw line.

He has passion that's for sure. He does that to a WR in the NFL and he will be picking up his teeth like chicklets

Did you measure that on your TV screen?

LOL.

Not sure I see it the same as you.

      Fished Saturday through Monday on the east end. As Brian said it was brutal weather. Wind wasn’t so bad but the wet snow Saturday and below freezing temps Sunday and Monday made things difficult. Didn’t do well until Monday when we put together a 30+ fish day. Caught more than a limit worth of 14-17” fish. Kept just a couple for a meal. Lots of them in that 10-13 range which bodes well for next year.     Nothing special on the tactics. Caught most of them in one spot. Fish were scattered all over a big mud flat in between islands at 30-35 feet. Jig and lindy caught about the same number of fish. Jig caught a few more of the keeper size fish.    Fish were coughing up what looked like mayfly larvae. Is that common this time of year? Maybe it was something else?

      You mention that if an archery hunter and firearms hunter are together they are considered 2 parties. Is that the same with crossbows, which use an archery tag. Would it be considered 2 parties (and obviously could not help fill each others tags)

      Skunked Again, heavy wet snow last night been shoveling it I'd say 3"+, what ice was there yesterday is now gone in front of my house anyways, more like a big slushy, 30' beyond is open water again. I have 44 degrees on the deck right now, you should be safe making a trip this weekend. If I'm wrong PM me I send you my address and you can come punch me in the nose.

      Buddy and I were fishing just below Whalan last summer and he caught two keeper sized walleye on a Rappala.  We were pretty surprised.

      It's not a very deep lake, so it is all relative. Most of the lake is 30-40ft deep so it is a relatively easy lake to fish from that standpoint. They aren't sliding any deeper than on a bright sunny day in July. There is also not much of a fall turnover to worry about.

      Great to hear from you Dtro!  It is sad that the participation in forums like this is going by the wayside and it seems we are losing valued members constantly which is sad, but also the way of the world.  Great to hear you are succeeding in your latest adventure, but that does not surprise me, as following you for the past 15 years, I wouldn't expect anything less from you!  I enjoyed the news clip and the excitement on the young girls face as she reeled in her first sturgeon!  Keep doing what your doing and don't be a stranger!!   Take care and stay safe!  Ozzie

      came back to civilization this past sunday. was nice tuesday when i got there and got alot of cabin stuff done. wed it rained all day but managed to do inside stuff that needed doing. thursday i finished up yard stuff and did a little hunting. friday finally got 2 grouse 😊 them gonna be good!!!!!!!! sat the kid and i fixed up deer stands but holy moly rockey with that snow was it wet in the woods. finished winterizing the cabin.   for me the weather wasnt cooperative to fish, so......... until there is ice the fish are safe from me!!!!!😜 the deer need to worry though!!!! sure would be nice if this snow melted, the ground needs to freeze up some.

      Better fishing out weighs crappy weather for me.  We are leaning the October dates, seems a fair amount of the resorts on the E side close first week of October however.  I would imagine fish slide deeper on Vermillion as the water cools?
