According to Jason Cole of the National Football Post, one scout compares Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel to future Hall of Famer Brett Favre.
“He’s Favre,” the scout said. “On Sunday, he’s going to play his (butt) off. The rest of the week, he’s going to do what he wants to do.”
The scout says Manziel is going to do whatever you tell him not to, but he believes he’ll be a great NFL signal-caller.
“If you tell him not to go drink, he’s not going to listen. He’s going to go drink,” the scout said of Manziel. “If you can tell him not to chase (women). He’s going to chase (women). That’s just who he is and he’s going to do what he wants. I think he’s going to be great, but you’re going to have to deal with him on his terms.”
