When Johnny Manziel came to Cleveland Browns, he was regarded as one of the biggest and brightest stars to hit the main frame. But ended up being the biggest bust of them all.

Recently on the Skip Bayless Show, the 70-years-old analysts started discussing why his debates over Johnny Manziel being the G.O.A.T of Cleveland over LeBron James were not all lost cause. He started by stating, “I loved Johnny. So did a lot of people. His stories were legendary on and off the field. What Johnny did to my city (Oklahoma) was nothing short of legendary.” 

Bayless then went onto reveals certain opinions passed upon Johnny Manziel. He added by talking about his Cleveland Brown stats, “His elite effort of 516 yards, 2 passing touchdowns and 2 running touchdowns, this showed he could have been a great, not good, but great football player. But he prioritized party over football.” 

Now, when Manziel was drafted in 2014 by Cleveland with the 22nd pick in the NFL Draft, he was expected to break the charts of greatness. For his career, he threw for 1,675 yards, 7 touchdowns and seven interceptions, completing 57% of his passes. Moreover, the misery of his NFL career began when reports of him partying circulated just before clutch games. Furthermore, he was also investigated for domestic assault.

Apart from his accolades, making sure, that he hasn’t been in the news for any derogatory accusation in personnel or professional life. So, is Skip Bayless’ prediction of Johnny Manziel and LeBron James a flop-show or does his reasoning hold logic?
