Flavor of the day....Manziel

The media is scrambling for something to write about. So this week its all about Manziel...sorry I don't much care for this guy.

I did read an article, where the writer said, he may not fit, but he'll fill the seats for JJ. This was what I wrote years ago about McGee, he was home grown and fans would buy tickets. Gee how good was this guy, good QBs were cut to keep McGee around, and now not even the Arena league wants him.

If you want this guy, I'd like to hear the reason why, maybe I'm just plain missing something here. I do know he's the same height as Drew Brees, a guy who sucked until he went to the Saints. So I could be wrong about this guy, it would not be the first time.....But at the moment I say NO!

I say El Paso, this guy would want to be the star of the Dallas circus, and right now we have to many clowns to add another one.

Give me a freaking break, if JJ goes after ticket sales for this guy. Then I'll finally know he doesn't give a sht about the Cowboys only money.

We will need at least 1 DE, and a NT, that's 1 and 2 right there. Then we need a FS for sure, throw in a G and our first 4 are gone. Plus you will need a WRer if all the nay Sayers who say get rid of Austin are right.

Where the hell in this draft will you even come close to getting a good QB. Who knows the next Romo might be out there in the dark someplace. Does lighning strike twice, never going to happen.

If we can get him in the 6th round, I say yes lmao

Why Johnny football is really a stupid choice!

This is where the Dallas defense ranked respectively in yards and points allowed since Romo became starter.

2006: 13th, 20th
2007: 9th, 13th
2008: 8th, 20th
2009: 9th, 2nd
2010: 23rd, 31st
2011: 14th, 16th
2012: 19th, 24th
2013: 32nd, 26th

The best defense that Romo has played with was in 2009, and that's the year that Dallas got it's lone playoff win. Coincidence, I think not.

It's really been about the defense all along.

I think this guy went senile a few years ago, but it truly is the flavor of the week. Talking about Goose not Hawk lol

SportsDay columnist Rick Gosselin hosted a live chat Monday morning. Here are some of the highlights:

Q: Should the Dallas Cowboys trade for Johnny Manziel?

Gosselin: The Cowboys don't have enough to offer. When it's all said and done, I believe you'll have to get into the Top 5 to guarantee yourself a shot at Manziel. The Cowboys sit at 16, possibly 17 if they lose the coin flip with the Ravens. Teams offering to trade down, want draft picks. Lots of them. Lots of high ones. The two teams with multi-first round picks in this draft are St. Louis and Cleveland -- and the Rams are already in the Top 5. So don't bother speculating veteran players -- Miles Austin, Barry Church, Orlando Scandrick, Doug Free and some of the other names I've heard from readers this season. It will cost the Cowboys a pair of ones, a two, a three and maybe more to get up for a chance to get Manziel. That's giving up a lot for a guy who figures to be sitting on the bench for at least two years as (Tony) Romo gets into his new contract. I like the idea -- the Cowboys just lack the ammo to get there.

Q: Let's say Jerry gets that itch and trades up to top 10 to draft Johnny Football...what do you do with Romo? Try and trade him, cut him and take the cap hit, or let Manziel ride the pine while Cowboys finish 7-9 and miss the playoffs again?

Gosselin: Forget about Manziel. Because of the financial commitment to Romo going forward, the Cowboys can't afford to pay a player first or second round money who doesn't even figure to get on the field for at least two seasons. If the Cowboys go quarterback, my guess is they'll start looking in the fourth round at the earliest.

Out of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most....went senile yrs ago.....just like my buddy Bevo....lol

I'll tell ya, I'm not by any stretch a Romo hater, but I'm becoming more and more open to the idea of bringing in a quarterback for this team.  If we didn't have the cap figure we do for Romo currently, I'd be pining for a change sooner rather than later.  Why?  Because to me, that Eagles game with Orton was very telling.  He threw for more yards in that game than Romo had in like 3 or 4 games.  He moved the offense with just as much efficiency as Romo had. I feel like we have the weapons on offense to have a bus driver like quarterback be successful for us.  If Romo's contract was not a thing, we could maybe draft someone, his cap hit would be miniscule, and we could have gotten more pieces in place with said cap savings.  Meh.  I don't know.  I'm just not enamored with Romo anymore.  He used to excite me with his big play ability.  Now, he makes the safe throws that any old QB can make.  Not worth $100M, IMO.  Just a thought.

Once again it came to an end way to soon for us die hard fans. It also is possible that it comes to an end for Tony. I hope not, but he really has suffered for way to long like the rest of us.

The FA season will get started in March, we will start talking draft before to long. Hopefully Tony will tell us what he'll be doing before to long

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The future plans for Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel soon will be known.

Manziel is expected to make public his decision on his football-playing future Wednesday, two sources with knowledge of the player's thinking told ESPN.com on Tuesday.

It's widely expected that Manziel will announce that he's forgoing his final two years of NCAA eligibility and declaring for early entry into the 2014 NFL draft. Jason Cook, Texas A&M's senior associate athletic director for external affairs, told ESPN.com on Tuesday that there is no timetable for an announcement of Manziel's decision.

The deadline for underclassmen to declare is Jan. 15.

On Monday while in Pasadena, Calif., for the VIZIO BCS National Championship game, Manziel told ESPN's Brett McMurphy that he was still undecided and wanted to visit with his family before making a decision.

"I want to make the right decision that's best for me and my family," Manziel said.

Multiple sources told ESPN's Darren Rovell on Tuesday that Manziel has chosen Select Sports Group out of Houston to be his contract agency and LRMR, the firm run by LeBron James' business partner Maverick Carter, to do his marketing, though it is unclear if he has signed with either firm. Once he does sign with an agency, he forfeits his remaining NCAA eligibility.

The Kerrville (Texas) Tivy High product is rated as the No. 14 player on Mel Kiper Jr.'s Big Board, and Scouts Inc. ranks him as the 22nd-best player. ESPN College Football and NFL Draft Analyst Todd McShay projected Manziel to go fourth overall in the draft in his initial mock draft of the 2014 cycle.

Manziel is coming off his second productive season at Texas A&M, where he finished fifth in the Heisman Trophy voting. In two seasons with the Aggies, Manziel threw for 7,820 yards and 63 touchdowns while rushing for 2,169 yards and 30 more scores. He won the 2012 Heisman Trophy, becoming the first freshman in college football history to do so, and set the SEC single-season total offense record when he accounted for 5,116 yards.

He set the Texas A&M single-season record for passing yards (4,114) this season and finished 11 yards shy of becoming college football's first sophomore to account for 10,000 career yards.
