What is there to say about Johnny Football that hasn't been said already this weekend?Here's my take. Johnny Manziel is fun. Brett Favre fun. And good. I can't imagine he'll ever be a great pro quarterback but who cares. We still have three more years of him at Texas A&M, plus a few more Saturdays this season. And by the way, Manziel had the game of his life at Alabama in the Bear Bryant bowl. Scrambling, running, throwing, whatever it took as he led the Aggies over the previously unbeaten Crimson Tide. It was the game of the year so far in college football. I don't know what it was like where you were but all eyes were on Mainzel where I was yesterday. Compelling television.I get the idea we are heading for another Tim Tebow though in terms of attention and moving the media needle. I hope not. But it's probably inevitable. Anyone nicknamed "Johnny Football" and plays like that is going to have eyes on him. Wherever he goes.Speaking of Tebow, I ...

With his team already leading the number one team in the country, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is somehow able to escape the Alabama defense, fumble the ball into his own hands and then throw a touchdown. How is he able to escape the defense is beyond me. What is even more amazing is that he almost fumbles the ball but...
