Manziel will not play another down in the NFL

I’ve written exhaustively about Cleveland Browns (for now) quarterback Johnny Manziel. I’ve gone from thinking he was immature, to having a substance abuse problem, to being a jerk, to now thinking he’s a colossal jagoff and terrible person. I don’t throw “jagoff” around lightly…okay, yes I do.

But still, this new report is just awful. Manziel’s ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley filed an affidavit as part of a restraining order that details what happened to her on January 29th. If this is true, then Johnny Football will never play another down in the NFL.

She says that he violently beat her and threatened to kill her. He hit her in her ear so badly, that she ruptured an eardrum and still can’t hear out of that ear.

“They expect (her ear) to heal but it’ll take a while,” Dallas attorney Kathy Kinser told NBC 5.

I encourage you to read the rest of if here. It says that Dallas Police are currently investigating.

So, his agent publicly fired him, his dad says he’ll be dead before his 24th birthday if he doesn’t stop getting hammered all the time, and now you can add “woman beater” to his list of issues.

So, when the Browns cut him (and yes, they will cut him), who on Earth would take a chance on this guy? He’s shown some things on the football field, but not nearly enough where you would put up with his drunken online videos, domestic violence issues and overall immaturity and assoholic behavior.

I can’t see Manziel getting another shot in the NFL.

    I think you’re wrong, I believe he will play, if Crowley’s story was credible, for one, she would have looked beaten up. She did not. Two, the Dallas police would have arrested him after investigating. They did not. Crowley may be a bigger idiot than Manziel? I feel sure that someone will think they can straighten him out and give him a shot. But I do like your use of the word “assoholic”. Great!

    If this report is true that other teams could be interested, then I think I’d agree with you. If he REALLY beat the hell out of her, I can’t imagine that anyone would show any interest.
