Johnny Manziel hangs with Playboy model Dallas Nicole


Johnny Manziel is not letting any of the haters drag him down. Following another week of criticism and talk about Manziel partying too much, he decided to unwind by spending his 4th of July weekend in Las Vegas. What better way to do that than with a Playboy model?

While in Vegas, Manziel hung out with Dallas Nicole, who is one of Playboy’s feature models for the World Cup. We would speculate that Dallas is Manziel’s girlfriend, but we know by now that Johnny Football loves kicking it with incredibly hot models without making things official. Remember when he went to the Texas Rangers game with Kyndal Kyaire?

Like Manziel, Miss Dallas has done the whole inflatable swan thing in Vegas.

Johnny Manziel allegedly rolling bills in a bathroom does not mean he was doing cocaine

Things are really getting out of hand in terms of how much Johnny Manziel is covered and hounded by the media and public.

I mean the guy goes to Las Vegas for July 4th weekend, and he can’t even make it through without some photo emerging insinuating nefarious activities.

Busted Coverage received the photo seen above and says they were sent the picture by an emailer who says it’s of Manziel rolling money in a bathroom. Manziel was in Vegas for the weekend and there are other pictures showing Manziel in the same exact gray shirt and gold chain. This is Manziel with model Dallas Nicole wearing the same clothes:

Norm Clarke of the Las Vegas Review-Journal has some details on Manziel’s weekend:

Spies said he stayed in the Real World Suite at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with friends, partied at XS nightclub at Encore and dined at STK, the steakhouse at The Cosmopolitan.

I’m not really sure why people take a look at that photo of Manziel and automatically conclude he was rolling bills in a bathroom for the purposes of snorting cocaine.

What, like you’ve never rolled money in front of a bathroom sink before?

What if those weren’t even dollar bills in the picture? Or what if he was rolling the bill in his hand to grease the bathroom attendant, security guard or someone else? Or heaven forbid he actually used the bill to wipe his nose because he’s rich and can do that sort of thing, and he was just rolling up all the snot. Don’t act like you wouldn’t do that too if you were a millionaire.

You people can go out there and jump to your own unfair, ridiculous conclusions all you want. Just know that when it comes down to it, there is always one site who will have Johnny Manziel’s back, defending him every time silly stories come out trying to get him in trouble. For all we know, just like that picture of Manziel’s Heisman Trophy holding a blunt, this can be a total fake or plant job by some jealous fans looking to railroad the guy’s career. Everyone’s always out to bring down this guy. Manziel’s the real victim here, just like he was when this picture came out, too.

Don’t worry, Johnny, we have your back. Keep doing your thing and don’t let these ridiculous stories bring you down.

Johnny Manziel hangs with Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather


Johnny Manziel has faced a lot of scrutiny for going out and having a good time since he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns. Legendary former NFL players like Joe Montana have even suggested that he tone down the partying a bit. So how does Johnny Football respond? By trying to break the internet.

On Tuesday morning, Justin Bieber posted some photos on the social media sight Shots of him partying with his “boys.” The crew included Manziel, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and rapper/actor Tyrese.

According to TMZ, Manziel, Mayweather and company were partying at Bieber’s house in Beverly Hills. The police reportedly came to the house twice for noise complaints, but one time was because packs of young girls were screaming outside the condo.

Manziel hung out with Chantel Jeffries earlier this month, who happens to be DeSean Jackson’s ex-girlfriend and the young lady Bieber was with when he was popped for DUI. And we already knew Bieber and Mayweather were close friends.

It all finally makes sense. Manziel is doing what all of our college professors urged us to do before and after graduating — networking. Who can blame him?

Johnny Manziel: I’m not going to change for anyone

Johnny Manziel has received just as much criticism — if not more — for his off-field lifestyle since being drafted by the Cleveland Browns as he did during college. Johnny Football has been enjoying the offseason the only way he knows how, which means parties in Las Vegas and photos with models at nightclubs. And don’t expect it to change anytime soon.

Some of Manziel’s teammates have already admitted that the attention he receives can get annoying. Then there have been prominent former players like Joe Montana and Warren Moon who have basically recommended that Manziel tone it down. They might as well save their breath.

“I’m not going to change for anybody,” Manziel told reporters Friday, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I’m going to enjoy my time off.”

Manziel added that he always appreciates the advice of Hall of Fame players, but he insists he has the balance of football and personal leisure under control. As long as he is doing what the team asks of him and is showing up to work prepared, the Browns probably have no issue with the pool parties and money phones.

That said, Manziel should still learn to watch his step. Whether his party-boy antics take away from his football preparedness or not, they can easily become a distraction to the team. Not only that, but part of being a professional athlete is adjusting — also known as changing — when you are told to. Manziel shouldn’t lose sight of that.

Joe Montana latest to offer advice for Johnny Manziel

johnny-manziel-las-vegas-1Because of his demeanor, Johnny Manziel is a lightning rod for criticism. Seemingly everything he does it put under a microscope. It’s the life of Johnny Football.

Hall of Famer Joe Namath came out and urged people to relax a bit on the Manziel hate. Others, like former Cleveland Browns first round pick Brady Quinn, have been a bit more critical of his behavior.

San Francisco 49ers great Joe Montana is the latest to offer a few words on the 22nd pick of this year’s draft. The four-time Super Bowl winner was a guest on NFL Network’s NFL All Access on Wednesday and though his words aren’t harsh, they made a point that has been a recurring theme when the topic of Johnny Manziel comes up.

“I go back to an old saying Bill Walsh told me after we won our first Super Bowl. I was going everywhere and trying to do everything. He called me in and said, ‘I want to tell you one thing, I understand what you’re doing, we may never get back to another Super Bowl. Just remember this, the less people see you, the more they want to see you.'”

“It’s OK to do some things but try to cut it back and don’t forget about football.” Because that’s what got you there and that is what’s going to keep you there. So you have to make sure you spend the time on football as much as getting out and about.”

Johnny Manziel certainly likes to enjoy himself, no one would deny that. He would also have you know he takes football seriously, as he showed by tweeting a photo of what looked like the Cleveland Browns playbook while hanging out in Las Vegas.

Joe Montana certainly won’t be the last to give his thoughts on Manziel, but he has played the same position and knows what it’s like to be in the spotlight so what he says carries weight. Quoting Bill Walsh is also rarely a bad thing.

Johnny Manziel hung out with Chantel Jeffries


Johnny Manziel continued his offseason streak of partying over the weekend when he spent some time in Houston. We’ve kind of grown tired of writing about Manziel doing stuff like talking on a money phone while wasted, but we couldn’t help but notice who he posed for a couple photos with on Saturday night. It was Chantel Jeffries.

If you recognize Jeffries, it might be because she used to date DeSean Jackson. Or, Jeffries could sound familiar because she was the one who was with Justin Bieber when he was popped for DUI earlier this year. A young lady who spotted Manziel and Jeffries together at Limelight nightclub in Houston shared a photo on Twitter.

We don’t know if Manziel and Jeffries arrived together, but they hung out long enough to pose for at least two separate photos. I wonder how DeSean feels about that.

Brady Quinn has issue with Johnny Manziel’s behavior, money phone

Brady Quinn is the latest person to object to Johnny Manziel’s off-field behavior.

Quinn, a former first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns who last took snaps in the NFL with the Chiefs in 2012, was a guest on Sirius XM NFL Radio and talked about how he didn’t like what he saw in the latest Manziel Instagram video to go viral.

The video, which contains explicit language (seen below), shows Manziel holding a stack of money up to his ear. Manziel appears to be extremely faded and wasted in the video:

Quinn was critical of Manziel and said he didn’t think the young QB was setting a proper example off the field.

“The thing I’m most worried about is what you’re kind of seeing off the field,” Quinn said as transcribed by Ohio.com. “Some people say you can work hard and play hard. But I think my biggest issue with it is when you’re drafted in the first round, you’re the face of the franchise, and when you’ve got a video that comes out like that, I understand he’s trying to have a good time and live his life off the field, but there’s a little kid watching that, and now he’s looking up to him as a role model. And for me, personally, I have a little bit of an issue with it.

“I don’t think that’s the way you want to conduct yourself. If you’re asking [Browns owner] Jimmy Haslam, ‘Is that really what you want the face of your franchise doing and having out there?’ I just don’t think it’s right. I don’t think it’s respectful to the other veteran players, too, right now who are probably trying to take care of their bodies, trying to prepare to go into a winning season right now instead of doing things like that off the field.”

Quinn then brought up Russell Wilson as a comparison.

“I always revert back to [Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl-winning quarterback] Russell Wilson only because he’s so young. He’s been so successful, but you see all the time his good works. When he’s out there on camera or out there on Twitter, whatever it is, he’s at a hospital with sick kids, giving them gifts, trying to brighten up their day. That’s the kind of role model I want for my franchise, and I don’t understand why [Manziel] can’t interject more of it into his life. He’s got such a following. So then try to do it in a positive way to help kids who are sick or people who are homeless, whatever it is, but just try to do it in a more positive manner.”

There are a few points I would make here. For one, Manziel didn’t post this video, so it’s not like that’s the image of himself he wanted to advertise. However, if you’re not out partying and getting wasted like that, that sort of thing wouldn’t be caught on camera anyhow. And I don’t think it’s right to compare Manziel to Wilson and for us to assume that Wilson is a great guy just because of what he chooses to show us on social media. That could make him a phony for all we know.

I won’t be quite as critical of Manziel as Quinn was, but I will say that particular video makes the former Heisman Trophy winner look like a total idiot. I’m guessing he’s not proud of it, either.
