Johnny Manziel had a rough off season after becoming the first ever freshman to win the coveted Heisman trophy. The controversy of allegedly getting paid to sign autographs and being arrested for partying had put a downward spiral on his image and reputation. All this being said he still had to play football games and try for an encore of last years incredible feats. His encore statistically has been better than last year, and he’s playing with more confidence and looking like the quarterback who should be the first player ever to win back to back Heismans. Manziel scored five touchdowns against the number one team in the nation, the Alabama Crimson Tide, and almost beat them for a second consecutive year. No other player or quarterback can say they’ve scored three touchdowns in the past two seasons. Back to back Heisman? I’m thinking so.
