With The Finger Gesture, Johnny Manziel Is One of A Kind

No surprise, it’s Brian Hoyer as the choice among the Cleveland Browns brass. Entering his six season, this veteran will take the snaps from center on the road against the Steelers.

Now Johnny Manziel must learn patience. But we are not going to learn to ignore his antics. They will continued to be covered. As what we saw in the preseason game Monday night against the Redskins, just on the outskirts of the capital.

What has become Johnny Football, became Johnny Finger and Johnny Bird after the infamous gesture towards the Redskins sidelines.

Truth is, Manziel is not going away, and in all probability, his way of doing things as well, although anyone can change.

But if not a change, I guess we should question, what will he do next?

Who knows, but I’m sure most will care.

Concerning that one finger raising on Monday night, not the best of all examples when it comes to leadership.

The Manning brothers have never done this, Brees the same, Rodgers likewise, you don’t even see Brady give that motion, and there’s plenty that don’t like Brady.

What about the young QB’s of this generation, the star attractions of tomorrow, Russell Wilson leads by example, while Colin Kaepernick, well no finger from him.

Question is, what does Manziel’s gesture of Monday night mean? A fine, well it should, but how about the continued long-term impact of defenses, wanting to mark Manziel?

Hey, he gets what he’s asking for. Then again, maybe it’s best that Manziel sits out. No drama and no markings of defense going after him.
