Just about everyone has an opinion on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Most views of the quarterback have changed over the last few months, as many folks outside of Texas think the fame is going straight to Johnny Football’s head. Tom Brady was even asked about Manziel this week and the Patriots quarterback had an interesting (albeit indirect) piece of advice for the young QB. On CNBC’s Squawk Box on Wednesday, Brady was asked about Manziel’s recent showboating in the Aggies’ season opener against Rice. Manziel, who had to sit out the first half because of an NCAA suspension, was flagged by the refs and subsequently benched by head coach Kevin Smith after engaging in a little bit too much smack talk with an opponent after scoring a touchdown. Host Joe Kernen asked the Pats slinger a wordy question referring to Manziel’s showboating and eventually got around to asking: “what’s the biggest thing you’ve ever done in terms of flaunting? I think I’ve maybe seen a fist pump. That...

Missouri fans send their own taunt at Texas A&M's Manziel

On the Internet, there are GIFs. Then, there are GIFS. In a game that featured Johnny Manziel throwing up his now famous "money" celebration after each of his three touchdown passes, and a couple of taunting penalties by mocking a few Rice defensive players, we thought we walked away with plenty of GIFs to keep us entertained until Texas A&M took the field again....

Stallings with old-school beliefs on Manziel

The patron saint of the Aggies, Gene Stallings, had not heard about Johnny Manziel's Time Magazine cover story when I reached him Friday morning. Stallings, who lives on a ranch outside of Paris, Texas, was on his tractor trying to get some work done before lunch. "This has to be a short one," he politely said about the interview request. The Time story centered on...

Texas A&M president shows sense of humor with fans

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel created a stir with some of his on-field antics in a second half debut performance against Rice last week. When Manziel was not leading the Aggies to a touchdown, he may have been found making some symbolic hand gestures. One of those gestures saw Manziel rubbing his fingers today in a motion generally accepted to refer to money (dollar bills...

Thursday it was New England quarterback Tom Brady's...

Burden will be bigger for Patriots’ QB Brady

Sure he has three Lombardi Trophies two Super Bowl MVPs and two league MVPs has been selected for eight Pro Bowls lives with his supermodel wife on an estate surrounded by a moat and will be a first-ballot Hall of Famer. Fine. But this will be the season the New England Patriots rely on their dashing prince...

New receivers teach Brady patience

Parenting takes patience. A father of three, Tom Brady understands that truth all too well. And the 36-year-old quarterback says it's similar to what his day job calls for -- especially in developing the Patriots' new rookie receivers.

The adjustments...
