The football world has embraced Johnny Manziels comeback, but former NFL player Shannon Sharpe isnt having any of it.
“To watch this and to say, his potential is off the charts. Man, its straight BS,” Sharpe opined Monday on his FS1 show “Undisputed.” Its painful to watch.

Oh, boo hoo, Shannon Sharpe isnt happy that NFL teams are showing a bunch of interest in Johnny Manziels comeback journey. Why is there so much negativity surrounding this guy?
Isnt an incredible downfall and comeback a great American story? Im pretty sure thats what drives most of sports. People fall, people rise and were here for every second of it. I guess Sharpe never got that memo.
Look, I understand why people dont love Manziel. He dug himself into a deep hole with actions that are entirely his own fault. However, that doesnt mean that we have to shut down and hate his comeback.
Im pumped this dude is on the verge of a return. Hes gotten clean and hes still got his talent. Its time for Sharpe and the rest of the haters to join the winning side.
