Johnny Manziel's a better quarterback this year than he was last year when he won the Heisman trophy.
And the stats prove it.
The only reason Manziel isn't a prohibitive favorite right now is because Texas A&M's defense sucks. But why is that Manziel's fault? The Aggies have lost two games this year against Alabama and Auburn. In both of those games, the Aggie offense scored more than 40 points.
Manziel's performance against Alabama was the single greatest performance ever allowed by any Alabama team. Ever. Alabama gave up 42 points to Manziel. The Tide have given up just 53 points combined to the other eight teams its played.
Against Auburn, Manziel was virtually unstoppable except for when he left the game with a shoulder injury. If he doesn't get hurt, the Aggies win that game as well.
His Aggies still posted 41 points.
Can you really hold it against Manziel that his team lost to two teams that are a combined 18-1 on the season?
Right now we've got a two-way Heisman ra...
