Manziel Discussion

I apologize, I'm not a college football fan, nor do I understand a lot of the intricacies of this Game. I'm a fan, only team I'll usually watch is the Eagles and through the years I've learned a lot about the sport, but am still learning and open to learning.

With that preface, I'd like to ask the more knowledgeable fans on both sides of the fence about Manziel. Forget for a moment that we have Nick the Gunslingin' Kid on our roster, and look at this Manziel thing by itself.

I know Chip recruited him to play for him at Oregon and that Manziel would really fit what Chip likes to do (although Chip caters his offense to the players he has, so he doesn't have one set way). The question is about his arm strength and height, maturity etc.

So the first thing is, can this kid not cut it as a NFL QB ? Can he not make all the throws ? I'm asking, as I don't watch the games, and a lot of you know a lot more about that.

The other question is, can he not succeed in the Chip Kelly offense and outdo any of our current Qb's ? The defense will have a lot more to worry about with his skill set, given that he can make all the necessary throws. Or will he be too fragile and won't be able to run around like he did in college when he's among the big boys ?

He definitely has passion for the game, and he definitely has a skill set, but would that be a good match for what Chip wants to do in the NFL ? I understand Chip will cater to the players he has, but at some point, does he have a preference for players that he would want to bring in and truly do what he wants to do ? Or Chip really that flexible and great that he'll work with what he's got ?

I don't know, I have a lot of questions about this, I like what Foles did, but I just feel that Chip would love a QB who's multi-dimensional, he gave Vick a shot, but Vick didn't live up to the expectation or didn't even come close. But is there a QB in this draft that would be a perfect match for Chip, and if so, would you go for it ?

Lots of questions, so few answers, I apologize if we've discussed this Manziel issue to death, but would love to hear from those who are still willing to discuss, thanks !
