John's Take: The Manziel circus takes over NFL

Right now in sports, it's all about Johnny Manziel's pro day yesterday in front of 30 teams on national TV. We now have live coverage of a workout.

I'm at fault here, too, because I'm going to talk about it. It is wall-to-wall coverage that we haven't seen since Tim Tebow.

My Take: To the team that drafts Johnny Manziel, the circus is not only coming to town, it's moving in. The bandwagon is full of Johnny Manziel fans. It's overflowing. They need to rent another wagon.

Yes, he made the deep throws, yes he completed almost all of his passes, and yes, he faced pressure, but only from the spectators.

Manziel and his 5-'11" frame did not have to see over his bigger lineman. There was no speedy defensive guys putting real pressure on him. And his receivers were wide open every time. Sundays in the NFL will be different.

Tim Tebow was a winner in college, too, a two-time national champ, but caused a circus in Denver, New York and New England and couldn't make it in the NFL. And the circus was not all his fault.

But here we go again. The NFL, the media and Manziel himself, have created one huge distraction.

I don't like Manziel because of his size, I think he will play out of control football while running around, and I'm not sure he can survive an NFL hit. And now, we could have Tim Tebow part two.

It takes 53 players including a really good leader to win the Super Bowl. I don't want a ringmaster and the circus that comes with it. Is Manziel really worth all the hype?
