Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel Discharged From Rehab

JOHNNY REHAB DISCHARGED …

Johnny Manziel, the Cleveland Brown’s QB and number 22 pick of the 2014 NFL draft has been discharged from the rehab. Has 10 weeks passed that fast? Manziel checked into the facility on January 28, 2015 in an effort to “be a better family member, friend and teammate.” however, the exact nature of Manziel’s treatment is unclear, but the facility that treated him specializes in drug and alcohol rehabilitation. Needless to say, Manziel’s first year in the NFL was a complete disaster. Now out of rehab he is expected to complete for the QB job. Sorry, I will believe that when I see it. Frankly, not only does Manziel not have the skill set to be a starting QB in the NFL, he does not have the character make up either.

Johnny Rehab

Johnny Manziel has been discharged from inpatient rehab after more than 10 weeks, a source confirmed for Northeast Ohio Media Group.

Now he will try to prove to the Browns and the rest of the NFL that he’s the quarterback Cleveland drafted No. 22 overall last year.

ESPN first reported that Manziel was out.

It’s been a long journey for Manziel, from making deals with his parents not to drink in high school to being ordered to undergo alcohol counseling at Texas A&M  to his frat-boy escapades with the Browns that were chronicled all over social media.

Sorry sports fans, there is no rehab for being an immature idiot, who is not talented enough to play QB in the NFL. A leopard does not change his spots and it is hard to forget when Johnny Rehab, oh sorry, Johnny football said, he was not going to change who he was for anyone.

“I’m not gonna go to change who I am for anybody. I’m growing up and continuing to learn from my mistakes and trying not to make the same ones over and over again,” Manziel said. “But am I gonnna live in a shell, or am I just going to hide from everybody and not do anything? I don’t think that’s the way I should live my life and I’m not going to do it. I am here, I am very committed to football, I’m committed to my job, but on the weekends I’m going to enjoy my time off. I mean, I think I deserve it.”

Cleveland Brown’s Johnny “Football” Manziel Enters Rehab … Remember Manziel Saying, “I’m not going to change who I am”

JOHNNY FOOTBALL OFF TO REHAB …

ESPN is reporting that Cleveland Brown’s QB Johnny Manziel entered treatment on Wednesday; however, it was not said for what he entered rehab for.

ESPN’s Skip Bayless is owed an apology from many in the media and elsewhere. Bayless called Johnny Football’s issues a while ago, when many others in the media had the asme information, but were too afraid to say it. Skip Bayless said on ‘First Take,’ “I am so proud of you, Johnny Manziel, for having the guts to do this. It’s not easy.”

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel entered treatment on Wednesday, adviser Brad Beckworth told ESPN.com on Monday.

“Johnny knows there are areas in which he needs to improve in order to be a better family member, friend and teammate, and he thought the offseason was the right time to take this step,” Beckworth said.

“On behalf of Johnny and his family, we’re asking for privacy until he rejoins the team in Cleveland.”

Manziel is expected to be in rehab at least a few weeks, but the amount of time depends largely on what doctors recommend, according to a source close to Manziel.

A source said the Browns are tentatively expecting Manziel to participate in training camp but are not placing any timetables on other offseason activities as he works through the treatment process.

The quarterback is voluntarily entering treatment as a direct result of his lifestyle away from the field, and he informed people in his circle last week that he wants to “figure out his value system,” a source said.

Remember when Johnny Football arrogantly said, “I am not changing who I am.” Hmm, really … you better and you better be serious out rehab. The world is filled with failed NFL players who washed out and did not take their job or the unique position they have been afforded seriously.

“I’m not gonna go to change who I am for anybody. I’m growing up and continuing to learn from my mistakes and trying not to make the same ones over and over again,” Manziel said. “But am I gonnna live in a shell, or am I just going to hide from everybody and not do anything? I don’t think that’s the way I should live my life and I’m not going to do it. I am here, I am very committed to football, I’m committed to my job, but on the weekends I’m going to enjoy my time off. I mean, I think I deserve it.”

NFL Hall of Famer and NFL Network Warren Sapp Arrested For Solicitation of Prostitution & Assault (Update: Sapp Sacked … NFL Network Fire Sapp)

Yet another black eye for the NFL … Maybe current and former NFL player should just avoid being awake in hotels after 1 AM …

NFL Hall of Famer and current NFL Network analyst Warren Sapp has been arrested in in Arizona early Monday morning at the Renaissance Hotel for solicitation of prostitution and assault. According to reports, two women were at the hotel “as escorts” (aka prostitutes) and went to Warren Sapp’s room, where an argument broke out over money. The Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Sapp had been arrested. The police picked up Sapp at the hotel early Monday morning and charged him with the two misdemeanors.

As reported by TMZ, RUT-ROH, this can’t be good, the NFL Network has removed Sapp’s bio from the official “On-Air Talent” section of the website. Sapp has also been suspended indefinitely from the NFL Network without pay pending the outcome of the investigation … so says NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller.

William Pitts of NBC 12 in Phoenix reports that the Phoenix police say they were called to Sapp’s room at a hotel when a woman reported an assault. There were two women in the hotel room and there was an argument going on over money.

“While there [Sapp] was questioned and admitted involvement in the act of prostitution, but denied assaulting the females,” police said.

TMZ reports both women received citations — one for prostitution, the other for a violation of the City’s escort permit requirements — and were released. They also reportedly received injuries “consistent with a struggle.”

Sapp has been suspended indefinitely from his job at NFL Network.

UPDATE I: Not the First Time Sapp has been in trouble.

Sapp was arrested February 6, the day before Super Bowl XLIV, for allegedly choking a woman in his Florida hotel room. Sapp was also arrested for an alleged domestic battery in Miami in 2014.

Sapp was arrested Feb. 6, the day before Super Bowl XLIV, for allegedly choking a woman in his Florida hotel room. At the time, the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Oakland Raiders player was working for the NFL Network as an analyst on its Super Bowl coverage, but was pulled off the air when his arrest came to light.

Sapp, who was not present in court Wednesday when the charge was dropped, said via text message: “The State Attorney’s office declined to file charges. BS is over!”

UPDATE II: Sapp Sacked … Warren Sapp has been fired from the NFL Network.

NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller said, in a statement, “Warren Sapp’s contract has been terminated and he no longer works for NFL Network.”

According to a statement released by the Phoenix Police Department, “officers working security at a Downtown Phoenix hotel were investigating a noise disturbance when they were contacted by a female alleging she had been assaulted.” The alleged incident occurred in a guest room at the hotel early Monday morning where an argument ensued, allegedly over money. The altercation allegedly turned physical, spilling out into the hallway, per the Phoenix PD.

Sapp was then detained and transported to Phoenix Police Headquarters, where he admitted involvement in the act of prostitution, but denied assaulting either of the two involved females, per the Phoenix PD.

Nationwide 2015 Super Bowl Commercial, Make Safe Happen – Maybe One of the Darkest, Inappropriate Super Bowl Commercials Ever (VIDEO)

MAYBE ALL PR REALLY ISN’T GOOD PR … Nationwide Insurance delivered a gut-punch to all those watching Super Bowl commercials.

Although this is an important message and something all parents need to be mindful of when it comes to their children, the Super Bowl was not the place to show this commercial. The powers that be at Nationwide decided on the the following to be their 2015 Super Bowl Commercial, ‘Make Safe Happen’ . YIKES! It maybe one of the darkest, inappropriate Super Bowl commercials ever. There is nothing like “DEATH” to break the mood of people trying to enjoy their Super Bowl Sunday. If those who thought GoDaddy’s spoof dog commercial was inappropriate, which was pulled, I could only imagine the uproar over this one.

A Nationwide commercial for the 2015 Super Bowl was called “dark and depressing” and drew a ton of negative online reaction Sunday night.

The spot started off in a whimsical way, with a boy riding his three-wheeler: ”I’ll never learn to ride a bike,” he said.

Daily Mail:

Nationwide Insurance has sparked outrage after showing a ‘dark’ and ‘depressing’ commercial about a young boy who died in a preventable accident during the Super Bowl XLIX.

In the advert, the cherub-faced child talks about all the milestones he will miss out on after dying in an accident, including learning to ride a bike, receiving ‘cooties’ from a girl and getting married.

In a voice brimming with hope and potential, he says: ‘I’ll never learn to ride a bike or get cooties. I’ll never learn to fly or travel the world with my best friend. And I won’t ever get married.’

Speaking directly to the camera, he finishes: ‘I couldn’t grow up. Because I died from an accident.’

UPDATE I: Nationwide defends Super Bowl ad about child deaths.

In a press statement, the Columbus, Ohio-based company defended its ad, stating its intent was to inform the public about the prevalence of preventable accidents.

“The sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance. We want to build awareness of an issue that is near and dear to all of us — the safety and well-being of our children,” the statement said.

“We knew the ad would spur a variety of reactions. In fact, thousands of people visited MakeSafeHappen.com, a new website to help educate parents and caregivers with information and resources in an effort to make their homes safer and avoid a potential injury or death. Nationwide has been working with experts for more than 60 years to make homes safer.

“While some did not care for the ad, we hope it served to begin a dialogue to make safe happen for children everywhere.”

Nationwide Responds to Super Bowl Reaction

February 01, 2015

Columbus, Ohio – Preventable injuries around the home are the leading cause of childhood deaths in America. Most people don’t know that. Nationwide ran an ad during the Super Bowl that started a fierce conversation. The sole purpose of this message was to start a conversation, not sell insurance. We want to build awareness of an issue that is near and dear to all of us—the safety and well being of our children. We knew the ad would spur a variety of reactions.

NBC Sports: Super Bowl XLIX Between Patriots and Seahawks Delivers Highest Overnight TV Rating Ever at 49.7

As they say in South Boston, Super Bowl XLIX gets highest Super Bowl TV rating, EVAH!!!

NBC Sports has reported that Super Bowl XLIX delivered the highest overnight TV rating in Super Bowl history. The 49.7 rating between the New England Patriots and defending champion Seattle Seahawks went down to the last seconds before a victor was determined. In the end, the Patriots won their 4th Super Bowl 28-24 in one of the most thrilling comebacks, nail-biting drives and bizarre endings ever.

It was reported on ESPN’s MiKe & Mike this morning that 78% of the TV’s that were on during the Super Bowl were tuned into the game. 89% of TV’s in Seattle were tuned into the Super Bowl.

NBC Sports

The early numbers are in, and the Super Bowl was a huge hit on TV.

NBC Sports PR has announced that the Patriots’ Super Bowl XLIX victory over the Seahawks delivered a 49.7 overnight rating, the highest in Super Bowl history.

Last year’s Super Bowl overnight rating was a 47.6 for the Seahawks’ blowout win over the Broncos. Closer games generally deliver higher ratings; the previous year’s nail-biter between the Ravens and 49ers got a 48.1 overnight rating, which was the record until now.

Super Bowl Ratings Hit All-Time High With Patriots’ Win on NBC.

In the metered-market overnights, the Patriots’ 28-24 victory earned a 49.7 household rating/72 share, eclipsing the previous high of 48.1/71 set two years ago when Baltimore defeated San Francisco on CBS; that game ended up averaging 108.41 million viewers in the nationals.

NBC’s Super Bowl XLIX overnight topped a 50 rating in each half hour from 8 p.m. ET to the game’s conclusion, peaking with a 52.9/73 from 10 to 10:15 p.m. ET.

THIS ONE WAS TRULY SUPER … NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS DEFEAT SEATTLE 28-24 IN ONE FOR THE AGES

PATRIOTS WIN ONE FOR THE AGES

In what might just go down as the greatest Super Bowl ever played, the New England Patriots defeat the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks 28-24. This one was truly Super, the Pats and Seahawks put on one of the greatest games ever. That is what all Super Bowls should be like. Two evenly matched teams,  an epic game and just one for the ages.

Patriots win 4th Super Bowl!!!

New England Pats_old logo

Brady rallies Patriots to 28-24 Super Bowl win over Seahawks.

The Patriots started the 4th quarter down by 10 points and Seattle had all the momentum. But the Patriots showed the heart of a champion as Tom Brady rallied the Patriots with a 5 yard TD pass Danny Amendola in the back of the end zone and a 3 yard TD pass to Julian Edelman (VIDEO) with 2:02 left in the fourth for the go-ahead score. As I said in a previous post prior to today’s game, Julian Edelman is special. Then, just when the patriots thought they would lose another Super Bowl because of a BS catch by Jermaine Kearse, reminiscent of David Tyree, an amazing thing happened. Instead of running the ball in for a TD with “beast mode” Marshawn Lynch, the Seahawks incredibly threw the ball from the one yard line where unknown, but oh so prepared CB Malcolm Butler made the play of his life intercepting the ball.

Malcolm Butler’s goal-line pick clinches Super Bowl win for Patriots

Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes, Malcolm Butler intercepted Russell Wilson in the end zone and the New England Patriots rallied from a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Brady overcame two interceptions to lead the Patriots to their fourth Super Bowl championship, becoming the third quarterback along with Pittsburgh’s Terry Bradshaw and San Francisco’s Joe Montana to win four titles.

After Jermaine Kearse made a twisting, turning, tumbling catch for a 33-yard gain to the Patriots 5, Marshawn Lynch ran 4 yards to the 1. But Wilson, operating from the shotgun, was intercepted on a pass intended for Ricardo Lockette.

Jermaine Kearse catch that took the air out of all of New England

UPDATE I: Tom Brady (4 TDs), Malcom Butler INT propel Patriots to Super Bowl title.

The Patriots beat the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24, last night to win Super Bowl XLIX after Tom Brady’s latest legacy drive and Malcom Butler’s last-minute miracle interception. The Patriots won their fourth Super Bowl in franchise history in dramatic fashion by erasing a 24-14 fourth-quarter lead.

Tom Brady completed all nine pass attempts for 72 yards and a 3-yard touchdown to Julian Edelman, who ran a pristine in-and-out route to beat Tharold Simon for the score that gave the Patriots a 28-24 lead with 2:02 remaining in the fourth quarter. The 37-year-old QB broke a Super Bowl record with 37 completions on 50 attempts for 328 yards, four touchdowns and two interceptions.

UPDATE II: Tom Brady wins 4th Super Bowl and 3rd Super Bowl MVP.

Tom Brady got the MVP, but it was an incredible team effort.

Tom Brady won his record-tying third Super Bowl MVP award and fourth Lombardi Trophy, leading the New England Patriots to a 28-24 comeback victory over the defending champion Seattle Seahawks.

Brady completed 37 of 50 passes for 328 yards, with four touchdowns — each to a different receiver — and two interceptions.

The Patriots trailed 24-14 in the fourth quarter before Brady connected with Danny Amendola for a 4-yard TD pass with about 8 minutes left, giving Brady 12 touchdown passes in Super Bowls, breaking Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe Montana’s mark.

UPDATE III: ESPN Analysts discuss the play calling of passing the ball at the 1 yard line, rather than handing the football off to Marshawn Lynch. Malcolm Butler’s goal-line interception gives Pats Super Bowl XLIX title.

Forget “Deflategate” … Seattle now has playcall-gate.

After Jermaine Kearse made a twisting, turning, tumbling catch for a 33-yard gain to the Patriots 5, Marshawn Lynch ran 4 yards to the 1. But Wilson, operating from the shotgun, was intercepted on a pass intended for Ricardo Lockette.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio Predicts the New England Patriots Will Win the Super Bowl XLIX 27-17

Yet another reason why to love Sherrif Joe Arpaio …

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, “America’s toughest sheriff,” predicts that the New England Patriots will defeat the Seattle Seahawks and win the Super Bowl 27-17.  Sheriff Joe Arpaio says he will allow some inmates to eat popcorn during Super Bowl Bowl. And if the Patriots win, or he might make you wear the pink underwear again.

joe arpaio_pink

The Arizona lawman who bills himself as “America’s toughest sheriff” predicts the New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl and says some inmates will be allowed popcorn as they watch Sunday’s face-off with the Seattle Seahawks.

Joe Arpaio, the 82-year-old sheriff of Maricopa County where the National Football League’s championship game will be played, held an event on Saturday at which he popped the popcorn and forecast the Patriots will triumph 27-17.

He also took a cheeky jab at his favored team over the “deflategate” scandal, in which the Patriots are accused of using under-inflated footballs during their AFC championship triumph against Indianapolis.

Holding up two mock footballs, one for each team, Arpaio noted that the one for New England was softer. “I don’t know if I can blow this up, but it is kinda deflated!” he said with a chuckle.
