Examining Johnny Manziel's Performance Against SMU
Johnny Football did it again. This time Manziel put up Heisman-worthy numbers in just two quarters and change.
After posting a ridiculous 464 passing yards and five touchdowns on an outstanding Alabama Crimson Tide defense a week ago, Manziel is took care of business for Texans A&M against SMU.
Yes, Manziel and Co. did not defeat Alabama. Yes, that will have an impact on Manziel's Heisman chances. No, Manziel did not hurt his Heisman stock against SMU.
By halftime Manziel completed just 13 passes, but those went for 222 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Where Manziel did the most damage was on the ground, rushing the ball 10 times for 75 yards and two touchdowns.
Manziel started the second half for the Aggies and led the team on another scoring drive capped off by a Ben Malena touchdown to put Texas A&M up for good, 39-6.
On the day, Manziel officially finished with 244 yards passing, 102 more on the ground and three total touchdowns.
It doesn't matter how Manziel gets it done in order for his team to win, and it really does not matter in the confines of Heisman voting either. Voters will peruse total yardage numbers, and the versatility may actually give Manziel a leg up on the competition for his second consecutive Heisman trophy.
Manziel was once again the best player in the country this week, and the Heisman standings will reflect that notion.
