@NFL Twitter account makes a dig at Johnny Manziel #sadmanziel


The above tweet was made by the @NFL account at 9:54 EDT (6:54 PDT.) The Dallas Cowboys had just made the 16th pick of the draft and it wasn’t Johnny Manziel. I’m not sure who’s sadder at the news, Johnny Football or Jon Gruden. The Gruden-Manziel bromance, along with Mel Kiper, Jr., made many people remember that the draft is on the NFL Network and change the channel from ESPN.

Right now it’s 10:28 PM EDT (7:28 PM EDT) and the New Orleans Saints just picked Brandin Cooks with the 20th pick. Green Bay is on the clock now with the 21st pick.Manziel still hasn’t been picked. Are his attitude and off-the-field problems playing a role?

Is Tony Romo a happy man right now? Will Manziel drop farther down than Brady Quinn did a few years ago? How long will the tweet stay up before someone at the NFL deletes it? As of right now, it’s still up.


The Cleveland Browns made a trade with the Philadelphia Eagles to pick Manziel at 22. That’s the exact same pick the Browns drafted Brady Quinn at. How’d that work out for them?
