Johnny Manziel Speaks Out After Completing Just One Pass In Fan Controlled Football League Debut (VIDEO)
Since the end of Alliance of American Football League — Johnny Manziel found himself being talked about on social media for actually playing football.
Manziel, once a first-round draft bust in the NFL, made his debut on Saturday night in the new Fan Controlled League — a 7-on-7 league played on a 50-yard field where fans have input on play-calling.
Manziel played for the Zappers in a 48-44 loss on Saturday. He completed just 1 of 5 passes for 11 yards while rushing for 67 yards on eight carries with one touchdown.
After the game, the former Cleveland Browns QB didn’t seem to be too worried about the outcome or even his own numbers.
“The product will keep getting better as the weeks go on,’’ Manziel said, via USA Today. “Good start even with the loss. You know, win or lose we booze on the Zappers.”
“We’re having a blast,’’ he added. “This league is fun, and everybody that’s here is having a good time, so we’ll keep getting better.’’
The Fan Controlled Football League has four teams, and it will have games every Saturday for six weeks. All games are streamed live on Twitch.
“Feels like I’m super washed up, but I still had a blast,” Manziel said. “That was the most fun I’ve had in a while.”
