ESPN’s Skip Bayless Calls Johnny Manziel An Alcoholic and Liar [VIDEO]
Johnny Manziel's rookie season was not what many expected after the Cleveland Browns selected him with the 22nd pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. Johnny Football played in only five games this season and did not throw a single touchdown pass. In fact, he started only two games all season (both in December), and was injured early against the Carolina Panthers just nine days ago. Despite his lack of playing time, Manziel had no trouble staying in the media spotlight with his off-the-field behavior. He continued to party like a rock star, which was well documented on social media sites. The Browns quarterback later apologized to teammates for being a distraction, but the damage had already been done.
ESPN First Take co-host Skip Bayless has long been a critic of Manziel's behavior and had no problem blasting the rookie signal caller during yesterday's show with Stephen A. Smith. Bayless went so far as to call Johnny Football an alcoholic who needs help and a liar. Strong words for sure, but it will be interesting to see if the face of the Cleveland football franchise takes a long look at himself and tries to get help during the offseason.
