Johnny Manziel went full-on 'Johnny Football' in second Spring League game – For The Win


Johnny Manziel rebounded from a poor debut in the Spring League with a vintage performance (can a 25-year-old have a vintage performance?) in his second and final game in the showcase event for NFL hopefuls.

Manziel was lights out in the first half, completing 80% of his passes for 145 yards. He also found the end zone twice on the ground.

The 2014 first-round pick looked much more comfortable throwing the ball. That probably had to do with the weather. Manziel was up against a stiff wind in his debut and struggled to throw downfield.

That wasn’t the case in Game 2. Manziel opened the game, which was played in perfect conditions, with a 40-yard dime on the run.

He finished off that drive with an easy touchdown run.

Manziel had a little more work to do on his second rushing touchdown. He escaped the pocket and stiff-armed a linebacker before diving for the pylon.

Of course, Manziel’s ability to improvise was never really in question. If an NFL team is going to give him another shot, he’ll have to prove he can consistently do the little things that all good quarterbacks have mastered and avoid mistakes. Throwing a second-half interception won’t help his case, but he does have the option of going to Canada if NFL teams aren’t sold yet.
