Future Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre told USA TODAY Sports that Johnny Manziel remind him of himself when he was younger.

“I haven’t watched him much,” Favre said, “but one game I watched, for like three quarters, was the Ole Miss game.”

“I almost thought I was watching film of a young Brett Favre,” said the current Favre, who is 44 and spent 20 years in the NFL.

“I didn’t think I did a lot of things well (in college at Southern Miss), but he did. And and I liked the attitude of ‘whatever it takes’ — from that standpoint, I liked him.”

“I didn’t throw near as well as him,” said Favre. “He may have that capability — unbelievable throws and can makes plays with his feet.

“I was impressed.”

I see a little Favre in Manziel with how reckless he can be with the football.  He threw up for grabs way too much at A&M.  Can’t get away with that in the NFL.
