Johnny Football? Manziel throws 4 interceptions in CFL debut

Johnny Manziel CFL

Manziel dressed as an Alouette for the first time last week as backup to Vernon Adams, who had a solid game despite a 44-23 loss to Edmonton.

Three of Manziel's four interceptions came on passes that he had no business throwing.

Manziel struggled mightily in the first half, tossing several head-scratching throws that showcased a level of bad decision-making only surpassed by his unfamiliarity with the offense. This time, it was picked off by Jumal Rolle, who played in 18 National Football League games from 2014-15 before signing with the Tiger Cats this year.

Manziel led Montreal to a field goal on his fourth drive, then threw his third interception early in the second quarter - Rolle's second of the night. All of the picks came in the first half as Hamilton built a 38-3 advantage prior to the break, and you can see them all right here.

The Alouettes are 1-6 and have won just once in 18 games going back a year. "I've had this experience in the past and there's two ways you go about this going forward".

Johnny Manziel's CFL debut did not go well. One, you can let this get you down and sulk. and harm you moving forward.

"But I didn't lack any confidence coming into the game".

For those that were disappointed that the Browns didn't give former Quarterback Johnny Manziel another chance to stay with the team and take more snaps in the National Football League, this story is for you.

Some may think it too soon to put him in even after a full week of meetings and practice, but Sherman said that with Manziel's talent and intelligence, the time was right. "If I would've been judged after one game at Texas A&M, I wouldn't be where I am today". "Those days happen in football".

Manziel finished 11 of 20 for 104 yards.

TWENTY-THREE POINTS - That's Montreal's single-game season high, achieved twice, and a target Manziel will be looking to beat. Manziel ducked out of the way and turned a sure sack and seven-yard loss into a first down as he found an open receiver.
