Johnny Football: Get over it. I ain't changing

Has there ever  been a rookie professional athlete  like Johnny Manziel who burst onto the stage with less aplomb and more defiance of his critics?  After five fun-loving weekends away from the field, dutifuly recorded in the media,  Manziel drew a line in the mythical sand to reporters at the Browns' site in Berea, telling them that he has absolutely no thought of changing his lifestyle, no matter what anybody else thinks.

"I am not going to change who I am for anybody," he declared,  adding that he didn't want to live in a shell.

As we all know, professional football is a brutal sport, and as a quarterback, Manziel's  moment of further reflection on his life may come  with the arrival in his face  of a crushing defensive end who gets paid to ruin the other guy's week end.
