07:22 AM ET 08.19 | Johnny Manziel proved over the weekend a big draw in College Station, and no wonder. Some 10,000 Aggies fans turned up Saturday night at Kyle Field to watch their team in a 90-minute scrimmage. Many, perhaps, came hoping that this wouldn't be the last chance they'd ever had to witness Johnny Football in a Texas A&M uniform. ... [Manziel] now knows he must chop his footwork down shorter so the play times out better than if he's throwing it from the near hash-mark (and the pass play requires less air-time). But it's not only the mental portion of the game where Manziel has made such a sizable leap. It's physically too for the 6-foot, 205-pound 20-year-old. "His arm really is getting stronger and he's gotten a lot better fundamentally," [QB coach Jake Spavital] says. "He's so much better throwing the deep ball."

He is a talented kid who may become a major college and NFL success; too soon to say, but I'm not betting against him.

Hmm... Not one post to the effect that JM's increased arm strength is attributable to off-season autograph signing.

August 19, 2013  12:43 PM ET

He should be a spokesperson for Sharpie.
