  • OK, first thing to remember, ANY dude who takes even a single snap under center in the NFL. Is not a scrub who is dogshit at the game of football. Yet, if you are talented enough to make it to the league, you can now be compared to all other members of this fraternity. And doing so shows that his career stats actually made me fucking laugh out loud. Can't really believe that anyone invited him into training camp after getting cut from SD. His completion percentage is hilarious

  • I blame the Coaches for his not being able to handle adversity. As a HS Varsity Coach, I see this with other young kids who don't know how to address adversity.

  • Addiction is Satan. The allure of the apple is sometimes too strong. Manziel just could not get Satan out his ear. Manziel could have been Patrick Mohommes before Patrick Mahommes. Their style of play is very similar. Unfortunately, neither he nor we will ever know what could have been. A pity.

  • Flemlo my guy, I know it’s a sad story but I think you should tell the story of Zaevion Dobson, a true local hero in Knoxville, Tennessee. A story about doing the right thing and standing up for those around you and those you care about.

  • This one was touching. Had heard his name mentioned around a lot but truly didn’t know they were being a little mean as I simply didn’t know what bust meant at the time in the context of football. But hey at least he’s still trying and that is commendable, seems like a relatively good dude who lost his way a bit. He’s very clearly gonna KEEP at it no matter what.. good for him. Good video as always I really enjoyed this one a LOT. We all know you’re DOPE and we appreciate you with the great content as always.

  • Your comment about if you didn't see the whole Ryan Leach situation coming, you weren't paying attention is usually the situation. People get all excited about the possibilities and willfully ignore the red flags; it is human nature. Anyway, I love your videos and the honesty that you put into each one of them.

  • ok, chargers pass up on multiple HOF players...but then football gods were like "we like San Diego so we will help you out" they get L.T. ,Drew Brees, Antonio Gates....what does the organization do? squander all championship opportunities with horrible coaching hires, bypassing coaching staff to get Phillip Rivers (don't get me wrong he is a good player but they had a Super Bowl roster and decided to pick him and let that roster fall apart....they could have gotten someone like Larry Fitzgerald....imagine that Brees, Fitzgerald, and L.T.)
