    I've said it before, I'd love the Patriots to draft Manziel next year. He's been excellent so far today.

    Too short, not real strong, very immature. Iffy that his game can translate well to the pro level.

    Manziel has made some really good throws so far but his game is still built around his legs. Mike Evans is just a huge matchup advantage over all of the Bama CBs. Alabama seems to be moving the ball pretty easily after a shaky start, but I'm not sure why they aren't running the ball more on early downs because they seem to be gashing them every time they run it. Really good game so far.

    That play had shades of the helmet catch.

    That kinda reminded me of the helmet catch play........

    And I hate seeing that play.

    I don't care which players get the hype, but the best player in this game is Alabama linebacker CJ Mosley. #32 is in on every play for the Alabama defense.

    Last year at the beginning of the season I felt that Texas A&M was very underrated; people seemed to think that since they joined the SEC that meant they would be roadkill on a weekly basis.

    This year I think it's the opposite, that A&M is a bit overrated because of all the Manziel hype. I expect 'Bama to win.

    Manziel is in Brady's 2011 position. Let's see how he fares the rest of the game.

    Forget what I said about running the ball, A&M can't stop McCarron at all. It looks like Bama has fixed their O-line issues of the first game and nobody on A&M's defense is covering anybody. This is gonna be a fun one!

    What a terrible call, thank god for replay because that would have been a disgrace if Dix had of been ejected.

    I'd rather have Marcus Mariota than Johnny Manziel. That's not to say Doug Flutie MKII isn't going to be a very good NFL player because he's improving at a rapid rate, I just like Mariota more.

    The revelation from today was Mike Evans. He destroyed Alabama's D.

    jameis winston is the next big thing. he makes manziel look like a child play.

    manziel is a baller, but did you guys see how tiny he looked next to mike evans? i'm starting to think he may not even be 6ft even. unless he has mike vick cannon arm, he is not gonna do anything in the nfl. i would not touch him in the first 3 round.

    I think I'm gonna sit and have a drink or two and let my heart calm down. That last quarter was a bit too close for my likes.

    ROLL TIDE!

    Oh, like the other three quarters didn't raise your heart rate. :D It was an awesome game and this crusty ol' gator was rooting for Alabama all the way for the first time in many moons.

    Let's see Winston play against a team with legitimate defensive players before he's anointed anything. Pitt and Nevada are garbage.

    Manziel has done what he's doing against defenses with talent. The best thing that's ever happen to Maziel's draft stock is Russell Wilson.
