Johnny Manziel Is The NFL Quarterback You Want To Punch And Punch And Punch
There are situations in life when finger guns are warranted, but only a few: Like passing the bar exam on your first try; taking out an ISIS ammunition warehouse with a drone strike; or being Bruce Springsteen. These are the only three I can think of.
Finger guns definitely not warranted: getting sacked for a safety because you screwed up, but getting bailed out with a facemask penalty.
Johnny Manziel actually did that against the 49ers on Sunday, when he tried to run away from trouble from his own 7 by running straight into the end zone, where he was swallowed by SF defensive lineman Quinton Dial. Trouble was for the 49ers, Dial grazed Manziel's facemask on the play, so the Browns got a first down instead of giving up a safety.
And this is how Manziel reacted:
Not only that, but he made an exaggerated first-down gesture and then raised his fist as if he'd just completed a 50-yard pass. What's wrong with this dude? (Hold your opinions: his girlfriend gets to answer first).
To be fair, Manziel had a somewhat decent game and the Browns won, 24-10. But the competition wasn't stellar: neither team is going to sniff the playoffs, and my prediction is that Manziel won't sniff the starting position again if and when the Browns get someone decent behind center.
Anyway, a few plays after the non-safety, Manziel threw an interception. I guess the football furies were watching after all, and are just as sick of him as many of us are.
Is Manziel using the 'shooter Jennings' celebration after getting sacked? How drunk is he?
