We all knew Johnny Manziel was going to bring attention to the Browns and have some endorsements. Let’s just say that I didn’t anticipate “Johnny JamBoogie.” It’s a funny ad though.
This year’s Great Lakes Classic is happening tomorrow night and it’s a pre-season all about Johnny Football. My friend is the creator of the original GLC song and he gave me the newest iteration today. Enjoy!
John Turner of The Sporting News was kind enough to join me and talk about his time covering Johnny Manziel way back in high school. We talked about just how good and competitive Johnny Manziel is. We talked about his off-field antics. We also spent some time talking about the existing sports media culture including
Of all the headlines for the USMNT’s victory over Ghana last night, this is my favorite so far. Well done, Inquirer.
Always fun to talk to @sportsyelling about everything. This time I wanted to help everyone get to know her even that much more before we talked about sports. So, I asked about movies, music, internet cliches and some other stuff before talking about… Lonnie Chisenhall Michael Brantley’s walk-off winner Carlos Santana’s struggles Jason Kipnis’ statements about
Now that the Browns have drafted Johnny Manziel and are heading into rookie mini camp this weekend, the proclamations have begun. I’ll try not to create any straw men here, but I’m pretty confident most of us have heard variations on the following phrase. People say, “You don’t draft a guy in the first round to
The Cleveland Browns are going to do everything they can to control the narrative of their football team, it seems. They have decided to be ultra protective with their high profile rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel, apparently barring national media from rookie mini-camp. Wow, the Browns told me the national media is barred from their rookie
It’s been quite a while since I talked to Jon on the podcast, but I asked him to keep tabs on the NFL draft as a passive Browns fan who is married to a real Browns fan. We ended up talking a lot about draft value, trades, Johnny Football, Josh Gordon’s impending suspension and the
A lot of people asked for it, and I got the fateful text last week that said Scott was ready and had something to say! In all seriousness, I loved talking to Scott Raab every week and I love talking to him whenever I get the chance to now. With the Johnny Manziel draft pick
It’s 2014 and people are videotaping everything. That can sometimes be troubling, but on a night where the Browns drafted Johnny Manziel it’s pretty useful. Here are some of the more fun reaction videos I found today. Here’s the ESPN Cleveland party with Aaron Goldhammer and Tony Rizzo. There are a couple naysayers in there,
And this is why the Internet is fun. The Browns get Johnny Manziel and people start video mashups on Youtube with celebration footage, including… Apollo 13. Gotta love the Ed Harris reaction shot.
The Browns welcomed the biggest name of the 2014 NFL draft into Berea today and this is what it looked like. Also, no surprise, all the initial questions were for the second man taken yesterday, Johnny Manziel. Poor Justin Gilbert.
Johnny Football doesn’t know where he’s going in the draft, but he knows who at least one of his detractors is. His quote will join him on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Draft Preview issue. Former Browns Prez, Mike Holmgren says of Manziel, “Too Playground, too freelancey” When I think of Mike Holmgren’s reign as defacto owner
The word is out that Johnny Manziel is having his visit in Cleveland today. Have you seen him? Johnny Manziel is having his visit with the Cleveland #Browns today, per source. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 23, 2014 As I said yesterday, I’m really not sure that draft boards are changing that drastically at this
The fake Jim Kanicki or the real Mike Burgermeister joined me to talk through some Browns topics. We talked about the 2014 NFL draft, specifically who the Browns should take at #4. Mike Evans vs. Sammy Watkins and talking about three studs on the offensive line. Finally, we talked a bit about NFL draft cliches.
It’s Friday so that mean’s it’s my time with WWW. Just wanted to plug the podcast first before I start though. It was a good week of podcasts, so please make sure you check them out.
Jim Kanicki (Mike Burgermeister) joined me today to discuss all things Browns. We talked about the Browns decision to release D’Qwell Jackson, the shakeup of the front office, the free agencies of Alex Mack and T.J. Ward, Mike Pettine and lots about the combine. Is the combine meaningful? If so, how meaningful? Check out this
We’ve spent a lot of time talking about Johnny Manziel already. He’s spent time talking about the Browns in the past week. It’s no wonder that talented graphic artists continue to use their talents to put Johnny in Cleveland colors well ahead of the NFL Draft. Here’s another really good rendition of Johnny wearing the
It’s a divisive topic. Every time anything hits the WFNY Facebook page regarding Johnny Manziel, there’s an immediate split among fans who love the idea of Johnny Manziel becoming a Cleveland Brown and those who are as opposed to it as if Johnny Manziel is a fierce combination of Ryan Leaf, Mark Sanchez, Michael Vick
Like it or not, Johnny Manziel is news for Cleveland Browns fans until such time as he’s not officially an option for them in the upcoming NFL draft. So, as we move ever closer to that fateful weekend, I’m sure a lot of us will be watching various highlight compilations of many of the available
