Johnny Manziel Says the Browns Should Have known He Didn't Know the "X’s & O’s of Football"

Johnny Manziel hasn’t played a professional football game since 2015. The former Cleveland Browns quarterback wants back in the league. Which explains the redemption tour he’s been on for the last couple of weeks.

Manziel’s tour continued on Wednesday morning when he appeared on The Dan Patrick Show. During the interview he was asked what he would go back and change about his rookie season (a season where he threw for zero touchdowns and two interceptions in five games.)

Manziel was brutally honest when he answered, stating that, basically, the Browns — who drafted Manziel in the first round — should have known that he wasn’t ready for primetime:

If Cleveland did any of their homework, they would have known that I was a guy that didn’t come in every day and watch film. I was a guy that didn’t really know the X’s and O’s of football…Nobody was there, like helping me go over the X’s and O’s, and it was hard. I struggled.

 

After stating that, Manziel said that he would have gotten together with someone who can explain how things in the league worked (aka a mentor.)

His comments quickly spread around the internet. Manziel went to Twitter to try and articulate what he was trying to say:
