Johnny Manziel’s height an issue if he lets it be
Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel pointed out an important part of life in the NFL on Wednesday.
“I am not going to be able to sit there like some of these taller quarterbacks in the league and just be able to see everything happen as it plays on,” Manziel said on Wednesday. “There are going to be times where I am not going to be able to see something and I am going to have to make a faith throw.”
While there is no denying that the 5-foot-11 Manziel will, at times, have trouble seeing over the defensive line, this is not anything new. He’s been dealing with being shorter than most quarterbacks since he started playing quarterback and, at age 22, there is no summer growth spurt coming in his future.
Is Manziel’s lack of height an issue? Only if he allows it to be, which is what we look at in our latest at Dawg Pound Daily.
