Steve Young compares Johnny Manziel to Drew Brees

johnny manzielPro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young compares Johnny Manziel to Drew Brees.

“He’s the guy that seems to really thrive in chaos,” Young said in an interview with Yahoo Sports, via Black Sports Online. “That’s an innate quality that I don’t see very often. I think Johnny is very improvisational. I think that that’s a fun part of the game. The truth is that in the NFL, the job is to deliver the ball from the pocket. That’s the job. So he’s going to have to transition that.

“… That’ll be the challenge for Johnny — if he’s willing to do the boring work behind the scenes day in and day out, over years, he can be Drew Brees. He can be guys that have moved around in their careers – Aaron Rodgers. Aaron Rodgers could scramble around for 100 yards if he wanted to, but he’s learned the game. That’s what Johnny is going to have to do.”

I’m sorry, but I don’t see any similarities between Manziel and Brees.
