Texas A&M Aggies quarterback Johnny Manziel voted for Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston in the 2013 Heisman Trophy race, per FanSided.com's Josh Sanchez.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel voted for Florida State Seminoles quarterback Jameis Winston in the 2013 Heisman Trophy race. 

This was what FanSided.com's Josh Sanchez confirmed on Dec. 14:

"While many players would be tempted to vote for themselves, Manziel took an honest look at the season and cast his vote for the eventual winner, Florida State's Jameis Winston.

"Not only did Manziel vote for Winston ahead of him, but he voted for Boston College running back Andre Williams at No. 2. Manziel came in at No. 3 on his own ballot." 

To support his argument, Sanchez cites a Dec. 14 tweet from Billy Iucci of Yahoo! Sports Radio 1560 AM of College Station, Texas which reads,"Johnny Manziel reveals his vote: Jameis Winston 1, Andre Williams 2, himself at 3." 

As it turns out, Manziel's vote was just of many for Winston which helped him win the Heisman Trophy on Dec. 14 in landslide fashion. Manziel, known as "Johnny Football," finished fifth, per Ralph D. Russo of The Associated Press. 

Winston earned 2,205 points while Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback A.J. McCarron had 704, Northern Illinois Huskies quarterback Jordan Lynch had 558, Boston College Eagles running back Andre Williams had 470, Manziel had 421 and Auburn Tigers running back Tre Mason had 404, according to ESPN. 

Russo was able to quote Manziel, who offered some words of praise and advise to the Florida State redshirt freshman quarterback, who is just the second freshman after Manziel in 2012 to win the Heisman. 

"I had to go through controversy and I had to go through some things. To see him at such a young age, to put his head down and to focus on his teammates and where they are and where they're headed...I do give him a lot of credit for that with all the scrutiny he's under. I feel like he's done a tremendous job of focusing on his team and on his family and what matters most.

"Live it up. Enjoy it. Continue to be yourself and don't let let anybody change from that. You're going to have to adapt to how life is going to be after this.

"Stay focused. Stay true to yourself and continue to be the person that you are." 

Not only did Winston become just the second freshman to cop the Heisman. He, at 19 years and 342 days old, is also the youngest to ever do so. He became "the overwhelming favorite" to win after a sexual assault case in Tallahassee, Fla. concluded with no charges being filed against him, the ESPN report goes on to say.

As for Manziel, he is now a third-year junior who "can declare for the NFL after his season," per Russo. Should he do so, Manziel's last collegiate game will be the Chick-fil-A-Bowl on Dec. 31 against the Duke Blue Devils.

Manziel concluded the 2013 NCAA regular season with 3,732 yards, 33 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, per ESPN stats.

Brian Hoyer Is A Ford Bronco; Johnny Manziel Is A 1970′s Jaguar. What Would You Choose?

Oct 23 2014 10:26pm CDT | Source: SportsGrid

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer had been a solid starter for the Cleveland Browns — until the Jacksonville game. It was beginning to look like they had a serviceable player at the NFL’s most important position — until the Jacksonville game. Hoyer was smart with the football — until the Jacksonville game. He had thrown seven touchdowns and one interception — Until. The. Jacksonville. Game. But if your Ford Bronco broke down, ...

Brian Hoyer's Time Is Not Up Yet in Cleveland, Still Too Soon for Johnny Manziel

Oct 23 2014 2:19pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Cleveland Browns quarterback Brian Hoyer's dismal performance in his team's 24-6 loss at the hands of the Jacksonville Jaguars have some thinking perhaps it's time to finally make the switch to rookie Johnny Manziel. A cursory search of the Twitter machine makes that quite clear. However, Hoyer shouldn't ride the bench this week or any time soon. Though Hoyer was instrumental in the Browns' loss to the then-winless Jaguars, it wasn't all his fault. And the ...

Marcus Mariota Can Save the Heisman Trophy

Oct 23 2014 12:42pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Nobody is perfect. And the more we build up athletes as if they are, the more it comes across as a setup, just waiting for the juicy fall. That doesn't mean athletes aren't willingly participating. It's a two-way street.  But we can't afford another phony. Not now. So I asked Marcus Mariota, the Oregon quarterback, outright: Have you ever signed autographs for money?  "No," he said, laughing. "Not at all."      It's a start. We tiptoe lightly int ...

For the second week in a row the Cleveland Browns will face a team that has yet to win a game. This time the Browns will desperately try to avoid the embarrassment they felt against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The game plan for the Browns against the Oakland Raiders this week is simple: Protect home field and bounce back from the lowest point of their season.

The Alabama Effect on the SEC

Oct 22 2014 6:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Paul Finebaum noticed something peculiar when he was in Fayetteville, Arkansas, two weeks ago to see Arkansas take on Alabama. There was no fear or anxiety in the air from anyone the SEC prognosticator talked to—from Razorbacks coach Bret Bielema down to the fans grilling hot dogs before the game. The usual intimidation that comes with playing Alabama was largely gone. Alabama ended up winning an ugly 14-13 game. But Arkansas—the team and fans—believed it ...

The Pressure Is Getting To Matt Ryan Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan has been sacked nine times over the last two games but just 15 times this season. This is a reflection of the injuries and changes on the offensive line and specifically, the play of tackle Ryan Matthews, who’s really struggled against any kind of quality pass rusher. The added pressure on Ryan has shown up in the targeting data to his wide receivers. When the team is firin ...
