Barry Switzer bashes Johnny Manziel

Hey! Look! Someone else is bashing Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel.

“I’m certainly disappointed in his actions,” former Oklahoma Sooners and Dallas Cowboys head coach Barry Switzer told Colin Cowher on ESPN Radio (via Pro Football Talk).

Manziel returned to action in the second half of Texas A&M’s 52-31 season opening victory over the Rice Owls. After being suspended for the first half, Manziel completed six of his eight pass attempts for 94 yards with three of them going for touchdowns.

Despite the impressive performance, Manziel has been blasted for making a gesture about money, one about signing an autograph and pointing to the scoreboard while exchanging sack talk with a Rice defender. He was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and Aggies head coach Kevin Sumlin did not put Manziel back into the game.

“For him to act so arrogant,€“ I wanted to jerk his face mask and I wanted to grab him,” Switzer told Cowherd. “Of course you get fired for that now; in the old days you could get away with that. It’s the world we live in. It’s a misplaced value system. When I see this happen I wonder where the core value system comes from, if he has a core value system. This young man needs a damn hell of a lot of development.”

Manziel and the Aggies will host Sam Houston State Saturday at 7:00 pm EST.
