Like much of America, Jeff Fisher is hoping to see a lot of Johnny Manziel Saturday night. But it’s not entertainment Fisher has on his mind when he says he wants the Browns to dish out a big helping of Johnny Football against his Rams.
No, Fisher has more practical considerations in mind when he talks about Johnny Manziel’s snap count. He thinks Manziel would be a good test for the Rams’ D (via bnd.com):
“I’m hoping he gets to play a lot,” Fisher said. “He’s an outstanding athlete, and he’ll test our defense if he breaks the pocket and takes off running.”
And if he stays in the pocket, he’ll test the Rams’ DBs’ ability to dive for badly thrown balls.
Fisher also talked about Johnny’s recent middle finger controversy and whether he thinks we are in for a repeat of The Great Johnny Football Flip Off of 2014 come Saturday’s game:
“I’d say it’s highly unlikely that he were to do something like that,” Fisher said. “I think he’s probably learned from his experience.”
Well Jeff Fisher, America hopes you are right, because America does not want to hear another week of people complaining about what a bad apple Johnny Manziel is.
Here’s what we want from Johnny Manziel: lots of action, no middle finger flipping, and at least one sack at the hands of Michael Sam. Oh goodness, what would happen to the media if Sam sacked Manziel?
Forget about that volcano in Iceland, that would be the real explosion.
