Jaws: Manziel showed energy in first appearence
ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski joined the show to share his preseason observations.
Jaworski explained why he was a bit down on Johnny Manziel coming out of college. When I studied him, Jaws said, I just didnt see the attributes that would lead to sustained success in the NFL.
But Jaworski said he saw a lot of energy from Manziel in his first game and thought his performance was encouraging.
Jaws, however, said durability is a concern: You put a quarterback in harms way, they want to knock you into the cheap seats.
Jaworski also said hes in favor of sitting young quarterbacks. I always thought the best way to develop a quarterback is to sit behind a wily veteran, Jaws said.
Dan asked how guys like Tom Brady and Peyton Manning can play five more years. Jaworski said they would need luck. Jaws said it can end suddenly: You start going downhill and it usually happens quickly. I think thats what will happen.
Dan asked about his former business partner Jon Bon Jovis attempt to buy the Bills. Im pulling for Jon Bon Jovi, Jaworski said. He will be a great owner. He wants to win.
