Roger Staubach believes that Johnny Football is the real deal

Dallas Cowboys former quarterback doesn’t usually say much in the media but today when he was asked about Johnny Manziel he raved.

“I love watching him play,” Staubach told’s Frank Schwab. “There’s just something about him. He’s exciting to watch. You don’t have to be 6-5. Drew Brees proved that, and we see it with Russell Wilson. It really about instincts and arm strength. Size, it’s being shown, is not imperative if you have those qualities. ..

“If you take the 32 NFL quarterbacks in just shorts, throwing to targets, you won’t be able to say ‘This guy is better than this guy,’ Staubach continued. “They’ve got to have that feel, and can make the right play. It’s that ability to understand what’s happening and make those eight or nine plays that make a difference in a game. Figuring out if a guy has that inside of him is the challenge for NFL scouts.”

Roger is not the only one that thinks highly of Johnny Football, Alabama head coach Nick Sabam also praised his play, but can he translate in the NFL? I think he will struggle, but that my personal opinion.
