Johnny Manziel kicked out of the CFL

And yet Jon Gruden spent about the first three hours of that draft constantly pushing for whatever team was on the clock to pick Manziel. It was ridiculous.

Gruden was doing the broadcast? I was away from home for that draft, cleaning out my late uncle's house to prepare it for sale. So I didn't get to see much of that draft. I think I was watching (what I could), on PE.COM.

He was commenting on one of the networks, either ESPN or NFL Network. I constantly flip back and forth based on how much I hate the current person talking. In hindsight, I guess it's odd that I would have heard what Gruden had to say since he's annoying as hell. The other network must have had someone even worse.

At any rate, yeah, Gruden was doing commentary that night and was ridiculous in his endorsement for Johnny Football.

Who did you have to convince of that? I'm pretty sure mostly anyone besides the browns thought he was a joke

What?  There were plenty of pundits had him top 10.  Story of the draft was him falling to Browns.

Pundits, sure. But as we've seen, most GMs didn't rate him that high.

The Browns traded up (with us) to get him.

I remember how worried I was that we'd waste the first round pick on him. Then we ended up taking Marcus Smith. I still think it was a better decision.

Some people are given up at first opportunity, some people get chance after chance after chance.

Yep, called him being a bust from day 1. There were actually Eagle fans that wanted him in that draft.

To be honest, the only one I can remember with more college success immediately given up on was Tim Tebow.

Manziel is a self-defeatist. The worst kind of loser.😧

I'm more interested in Jimmer Fredette's comeback at this point.
