Sometimes, it really is better to be lucky than good.
Witness this play from Johnny Manziel, which violates basically every rule of quarterbacking ever written. But the rules weren't written for a player like Manziel, were they?
Here's some of the reaction from Twitter to that little miracle:
I'm pretty sure when the Devil comes to collect, #JFF will get out of it.— Tyler Dawgden (@TylerDawgden) September 14, 2013
This kid can't lose. If Johnny doesn't have a new Miami-based reality show with LeBron by the time HEAT camp opens we've failed as a nation.— rebkah howard (@pink_funk) September 14, 2013
Seriously, if Sumlin pulled Manziel from the game after that throw you couldn't even blame him.— Tom Fornelli (@TomFornelli) September 14, 2013
Manziel plays like Florida Gulf Coast University.— Mark Ennis (@Mengus22) September 14, 2013
They can't teach that at the Manning Academy.— Gary Parrish (@GaryParrishCBS) September 14, 2013
I want that guy's autograph.— warrenstjohn (@warrenstjohn) September 14, 2013
