Ryan Leaf by a wide margin. Many thought he would be better than Peyton coming out of college. Most people never thought Manziel would be more than a serviceable QB that would maybe have some good moments, except if your Skip Bayless.
Yeah incredibly the full game is on You Tube. I love YouTube. It also has a lot of full Colts games too. I miss the days of being a kid, do a few chores then the parents give you money and you eat McDonalds and buy Football cards with it! That game did bring back memories just because of my friend, I would've never known him had his parents not moved from Florida to Indy in the late 60's. They moved here because they were offered great job opportunities in their profession. My friend was actually born here but his whole family loved the Dolphins. Thanks for the You Tube Post, I will definitely check it out again.
Technically, I could see why he'd say that, because during Manziel, we had Twitter, Facebook, etc. When Ryan Leaf was being drafted, it was the year 1998. Thinking back to 1998, I think I had a 56k dial-up modem, so it was harder to share in those discussions without social media platforms.
I feel like College football has also grown a lot more since then, and with high-speed Internet and YouTube, it's easier than ever to pull up game tape highlights on athletes. Johnny Manziel was like a superhuman highlight reel, which helped drive a lot of his popularity. Even during his limited time at the NFL level, you could see moments of his athleticism that made him so exciting.
