    The best single season ever in the SEC for passing yards was by Tim Couch (and 1st overall pick)

    Also...
    Andre Woodson, Danny Wuerfful (and Heisman winner), and Jared Lorenzon are way up there too.
    All massive NFL busts.

    Just saying. Nothing is for sure.

    Notice I said "Manziel put up as many yards in offense in 2 seasons as Teddy did in 3". I didn't say "passing yards". Perhaps you would want to go back and re-calculate, adding in the 2,169 yds rushing Manziel had in 2 years and add in the 170 yds Teddy had on the ground in 3. I did that before I made the claim.

    I came up with:
    Manziel 9989 in 2 years
    Teddy 9987 in 3 years

    I don't want him anywhere near the Cowboys. I can't wait for another team to waste a draft pick on him and this nonsense can finally be over.

    The best part was wearing the pads so he wouldn't look so scrawny.

    I agree. He certainly had the IT factor at A & M. Fun guy to watch.

    If you move up to draft Jonny then you better knock on wood with both hands. But I do believe that if you do believe in a guy, then you should surely move up and get him. However I do not think that Johnny will be a top NFL QB

    Wasn't Aaron Murray more highly regarded pre-injury?

    Just sayin'...

    :rolleyes:

    I'm warming up to the Aaron Murray angle. Not at 16 but somewhere in the mix.

    I'm not sure I would want Johnny just because he doesn't help us now because Romo isnt going anywhere anytime soon and we need some help. No way I trade up for him but it would be interesting if for some reason he was at 16, he'd be nice to have for the future and all if something happened to Romo.

    I'd try to trade down to a team who didn't expect him to be there and get a nice pick but I'm not sure, it would be interesting seeing how Jerry just gushes over the guy.

    Oh yeah, definitely not at 16. I'm thinking 4th round.

    The Texans have been jealous about the Cowboys hold on Texas for as long as that franchise has existed. Now, they have a chance to take a Texas Hill Country QB, and an Aggie QB, who won a Heisman Trophy. And considering that their previous starting QB is gone, there is no chance the Texans don't draft Manziel. To Texan fans, they don't have to be the best team in the NFL, just better than the Cowboys. If they passed on Manziel, their season ticket holders would mutiny.

    Do you have a link proving that this quote was in relation to that? I only ask because I've heard people make several excuses for Romo in that regard including his Grandfather passing away. From what I read, his father was declared cancer free in January of 2008 which was almost a full year before Romo uttered those words.

    Better than the nice guy attitude we have floating around.

    Manziel would be the best thing to happen to the cowboys, to bad we are never that lucky. I would trade Romo for him in a ny minute

    There is a great chance that they will not draft Manziel.
