Yes, we come to you with yet another Johnny Manziel story. He really is the gift that keeps on giving. Whether he's signing autographs, going all scoreboard or showing up his coach, Johnny Football just won't leave the spotlight.  Oh, and all of that was just in one half of a football game last week.  Let's just say, should Manziel make it to the next level, there aren't many folks who will be putting up with his antics, including one of the deans of NFL quarterbacks, Tom Brady.  While on CNBC's Squawk Box program Brady was asked about Manziel and according to the SI.com article he had the following to say about Manziel:  I get pretty emotional. I have a lot of respect for … my teammates, for my organization and certainly for other guys in the NFL. There’s not a guy playing in the NFL who hasn’t earned the right to be here, and who isn’t supremely talented.  He’s [Manziel] probably been the best athlete in his high school class, in his elementary school class. So when you look across the ball, you have respect for those guys and treat them with respect. Football’s a physical game … and as [Kraft] would say, if you’re a turd, it’s going to come back to you. Um... A turd? Well, that's a new way to describe Manziel at least. So, bravo for that Tom Brady. At least he was honest in his feeling about Johnny Football and who he has shown to be over the course of the last few weeks and months.  However, Manziel won't be completely hated when he enters the NFL, don't worry, Joe Flacco has your back there sport.  There's no denying it—Johnny Football is a player and phenomenon the college football world has never seen. Never before has a player been so beloved for what he does on the football field and equally hated for how he acts and what he does off the field.  If this is just the beginning of 2013, buckle yourselves in because we're going to be in for one heck of a ride.
