Johnny Manziel, Browns billboard in Texas takes shot at Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys decided to pass up on Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, who is from Tyler just a little over an hour east of town. Instead they went with an offensive lineman in an effort to protect quarterback Tony Romo and Manziel eventually went to the Cleveland Browns a handful of picks later.

It looks like some Cowboys fans weren’t thrilled with the decision. At the Cowboys’ draft watch party an audible groan was let out when the Cowboys announced their pick. Now some fans in Tyler, Texas put up a billboard to appeal to another sense.

The billboard reads: TYLER, TX IS NOW CLEVELAND BROWNS TERRITORY. You can see what appears to be a Browns player wearing a number two jersey and holding what looks like a Browns helmet standing there. At the bottom it reads: PAID FOR BY FORMER COWBOYS FANS.

Something tells me Jerry Jones isn’t making it to Tyler all too often, and he certainly isn’t going on any road trips where he’d see this sign. Still, it is pretty funny and a colossal waste of money.

Don’t they know internet memes can carry the same message, reach a greater audience and they’re free.

    What a crock of crap.

    It’s Browns country because there’s a skid mark for the Browns to add to the list of failure.

  • Mitch Monteith

    That’s just from the ex-Cowboy fans with more money than brains. The REAL Cowboy fans were great with this years draft.

  • Old Frog

    I think it’s funny and it’s kind of nice they wanted to support their local hero. Besides,the Browns can use all the fans they can get.

    Good riddance. Anyone that dumb doesn’t need to be pullin’ for the Star.

    Yes, they know the internet would be cheaper but it’s apparent the billboard has a in your face style to it that Texas and Johnny are famous for. Right on the interstate. Hilarious!
