We got a small taste of the 2018 NFL season last night when the Ravens edged out the Bears in a thrilling 17-16 game in front of 19,876 Cantonites that had nothing better to do on a Thursday night. Did I watch every snap of the game? Of course not. I had a podcast to record with my friends (sans DB) so it was on in the background. Did I enjoy that every time I lost concentration while Whitty tried to help Jefe with his fantasy draft picks I could look over and see NFL on my television? You bet your sweet ass I did.
ProFootballTalk.com – The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have agreed to trade Manziel to the Montreal Alouettes, according to Duane Ford of TSN.
Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman knows Manziel well, having coached him at Texas A&M. Manziel’s redshirt freshman season in 2011 was Sherman’s final season coaching the Aggies.
The Alouettes have already tried three quarterbacks (Drew Willy, Jeff Mathews and Matt Shiltz) and have the worst offense in the Canadian Football League. If Manziel can’t beat those guys out, that’s a very bad sign.
It’s hard to believe the Alouettes would trade for Manziel if they aren’t going to play him, so it appears that Manziel may soon, finally, get on the field in Canada.
