How good do you think A&M would be without Manziel? He is such a difference maker with his improvisation and athleticism. I think they would be a 8-4 type team with a "normal" QB. They have a good defense but not elite. With him they are obviously on par with the best teams but I think overall they are slightly above a middle-tier SEC without him. Unfortunately for the rest of the SEC, they'll have him for a few more years.
They lose to us...so a 3 loss top 15 type of team.
Check back in 3 years
That is the beauty of football imho. Coming into the year. It wasn't even known for awhile if he was even gonna start. & then he goes & has a season like this. You can make that statement all day. But it doesn't change the fact that "nobody" saw this one coming. Just like Vince Young, Tebow, & Cam as well.

They lose at least 5 games without him. Maybe 6. He is the TOTAL difference in this team. They were decent last year. This year, explosive and its because of him. He actually makes the defense better as crazy as that sounds. But he does simply because they do not spend half the time on the field they did without him at QB. There rested and more able to just go and make plays freely - knowing they can score at anytime.
Exactly like Cam and au. They would've been a 5 loss team easily.
Sick O Line, pretty solid defense. That O Line and Johnny is just the perfect marriage. No way around it.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
You'll never achieve great things until you believe that's what's supposed to happen
They have a lot of talent but he's a one man show.
His ability to scramble for yards or extend plays is so valuable. Also good timing with a good oline and receivers already in place. They would be a good team but def a few more losses
