Manziel leaves Manning Passing Academy early, but reports of partying are denied

 Posted by Mike Florio on July 14, 2013, 2:06 PM EDT


 
AP


Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel will be the most scrutinized college player in the 2013 football season.  We know that because he already is.
 
Chris Mortensen of ESPN confirms a report that Manziel left the Manning Passing Academy a day early.  However, Mort says camp officials were “adamant” that Manziel was not sent home by Manning family patriarch Archie prematurely due to partying.
 
“Johnny Manziel did participate in some activities in the 2013 Manning Passing Academy as a college counselor/coach,” a camp spokesman told Mortensen, who is present at the event. “After missing and being late for practice assignments, Johnny explained that he had been feeling ill. Consequently, we agreed that it was in everyone’s best interest for him to go home a day early.”
 
It sounds like a diplomatic way of tiptoeing around a situation that could embarrass the Mannings almost as much as it would embarrass Manziel. After all, the Mannings want high-profile quarterbacks to choose to participate in the camp; if the Mannings start calling out guys who are essentially acting their age, the harder it could be to get them to choose to attend in the future.  Likewise, the Mannings don’t want to create the impression that their camp is being run by actual or alleged booze hounds.
 
“I enjoyed meeting Johnny,” Peyton Manning told Mortensen. “I can remember a 20-year-old Eli [Manning] missing a meeting and catching some flak.  We always have counselors who leave early.  Johnny was great with the campers for the time he was here.  He had to leave early.  I wish him the best and I want him to come back as a counselor next year.”
 
It’s possibly Peyton was being diplomatic, too; however, he hasn’t pulled punches in the past when necessary to call out folks who have been “liquored up.”
 
Regardless, it’s another reason for scouts and the media to keep an eye on Manziel as he faces the challenge, whether he likes it or not, of maturing in to the kind of quarterback who won’t have non-football concerns prompt his draft stock to dip.  And if there’s any behind-the-scenes truth to the reported rumors of partying, the private dressing down he undoubtedly received from Peyton was likely punishment enough.

Dude has some red flags building up.  I think by the time the 2014 draft rolls around, Bridgewater will be the top QB available.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

Jarred Allen likes him some booze too, so let's not discredit Manziel as a talented QB.

I'm a freeman supporter, but I'll take one Manziel with a drinking problem over two Freemans without.

Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Or option 3, a better QB with better measurables in Teddy Bridgewater.

Yup.

"Measurables are everything," screams the fan of a team that has a 6 foot 7 QB that they complain about daily.

Seriously though, Teds OK. A good consolation prize I suppose.

Bridgewater is already better than him NFL wise. David Fales is probably better than all of them though.

Manziel is exciting as hell. But with all the media scrutiny, this guy is almost like the anti-Tebow.

He has major red flags, and needs to get out of college ASAP. He is going to ruin himself.

Given a choice between the two, I think I like Bridgewater a bit more as he is NFL ready IMO.

Manziel is ridiculously gifted as a QB however.

And I am sure he and Justin Blackmon would get along fine. Dude left because he was sick and dehydrated?  Yeah. He was dehydrated alright.

Up all night Manzielling his liver into jello.

"Manziel is ridiculously gifted as a QB however."

That'll get you through college, but the pros require discipline and dedication to go with it. All too often guys that have been getting by on talent alone don't realize that until it's too late.

A NFL exec said today, teams no longer go with the big tall QB that can throw it a mile like Ryan Leaf.  If the guy can't lead, and stay out of trouble, forget it.

Obviously a case of favoritism....but I am glad in this case because the NCAA is garbage and this whole case against him was stupid. Just sucks that some other less known kid would be out for the year and probably lose his scholarship.

He's the Joe Namith of this generation.  Hell, sexting pics of his penis to a sideline reporter while his wife was recovering from cancer isn't going to keep Farve out of the HOF.
