It was bound to happen.
When Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine finally succumbed to the pressure of an entire city by starting rookie sensation/eventual reality television star Johnny “Football” Manziel over more proven commodity, Brian Hoyer, the internet was bound to explode.
The one they call Johnny Football finally got his first start as an NFL quarterback and let’s just say it didn’t go as well as he would have liked. The Browns got shut out in their own stadium by a score of 30-0.
I didn’t watch the game. I was busy watching my Bucs who have quarterback issues of their own. I’m sure the loss wasn’t entirely Manziel’s fault. Losses rarely are. But after the defeat, I did take to Twitter to see what the world was saying about Cleveland’s next alleged savior. Let’s just say, the Twitterverse wasn’t entirely kind.
To the Twitter machine we go…
I see the Manziel debut went well…
Media: “You took some shots out there.” Johnny Manziel: “Yeah, I had some Jack on the sideline.” Reporter: “I meant hits.” Manziel: “Oh.”
Manziel confirms he forgot to drink 2 bottles of water before bed and take ibuprofen this morning and will not be hungover next week
Manziel BAC is higher than his QB rating
I’m sorry, but that Manziel debut is about the most Cleveland thing ever. #Browns
That wasn’t a football game. That was Manziel depicting my love life via interpretive dance.
Johnny Manziel’s stats today are looking worse than Cam Newton’s truck.
the greatest thing about Manziel was the unknown. the worst thing about Manziel right now is the known.
I walked from the couch to the bathroom and back which means I now have more yardage than Manziel. -money celebration-
Josh Gordon just said Johnny Manziel was good today Josh Gordon is about to fail another drug test because clearly he is on drugs
Doing the Money Manziel hand gesture but also playing two of the world’s smallest violins at the same time.
The next time I completely fail at something, I’m gunna throw the Manziel money sign up. Seems obligatory.
Of course PacMan Jones wants Johnny Manziel to show him the money. He’s got a strip club to go to after the game.
Manziel: “Yeah I’m disappointed in my performance, but I am excited that my money gesture has caught on with the Bengals.”
Was that Johnny Manziel, or scrawny armed Rob Lowe?
It’s a shame to see Johnny Manziel struggle so much. Hate for somebody with that much class fail. #thicksarcasm
The best Johnny Manziel joke I’ve seen all day is Johnny Manziel.
Mr Manziel, welcome to the NFL. We’ve been waiting for you. Signed, NFL defenses.
Tebow and Manziel are going to be awesome together on the SEC Network.
