Quotes From NFL GameDay Highlights & NFL GameDay Final

“I haven’t seen [Johnny Manziel] grow at all. I expected this period where he got a chance to sit and watch Brian Hoyer, I thought he would grow from what he did in college…I haven’t seen growth from Johnny Manziel.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel who was 10/18 for 80 yards and two interceptions

“[Johnny Manziel] did some things that were really, not only rookie like, but very undisciplined. He’s got a long way to go. Two more games…he’s got to be better.” – Steve Mariucci on Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel

“All of this is learning tape for Johnny Manziel. We are going to find out can he retain it, does he learn from it and will he not make the mistakes again? The problem that I have with Johnny Manziel is he’s a playmaker. Some of those plays are in his DNA.” – Marshall Faulk on Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel

“We saw the same things from Johnny Manziel that we saw in college. He likes to force the ball, especially when he gets pressured. He’s going to give the defense an opportunity for an interception. Going forward he has to learn to play better from the pocket and manage the game a little better.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel

“I played 16 games with Peyton Manning. As great as he is right now, in those 16 games the one thing that he always talked about was the speed of the game.

“I like the momentum that [the Cincinnati Bengals] have going forward.” – LaDainian Tomlinson on the Cincinnati Bengals who shut out the Cleveland Browns 30-0

“It’s unfortunate because of all the success [the San Francisco 49ers] have had. We know [Jim Harbaugh] is a good coach, we know it’s a banged up team and we know whoever’s going to inherit this team, if Jim does leave, is going to find a very talented competitive team. Jim will find a place to go – there will be several suitors for him. It’s just an unfortunate situation for the 49er faithful.” – Steve Mariucci on the San Francisco 49ers who lost 17-7 to the Seattle Seahawks and have been mathematically eliminated from the playoffs

“Jeremy Maclin, he gambled right here saying I will not take a contract let’s play the season out. I think he earned a lot of money.” – Michael Irvin on Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin who had four receptions for 98 yards

“In Bruce Arians I trust because regardless of what quarterback that he puts on the football field, this defense and him calling plays, they are going to make sure that they have a chance to win these ball games.” – Marshall Faulk on the Arizona Cardinals who beat the St. Louis Rams Thursday and secured a playoff berth Sunday with the Philadelphia Eagles loss to the Dallas Cowboys
