Johnny Manziel picked off four times in opening half of CFL debut, Twitter lights him up


Johnny Manziel’s second CFL pass was caught but by the other team, not the start Johnny Football envisioned to his Canadian career.

Manziel completed 9-of-16 passes for 90 yards and four interceptions as Montreal was down 28-0 through 15 minutes and 38-3 at the break. The rough opening 30 minutes lit up social media – Johnny Manziel was trending on Twitter.

Some current and former CFL players weren’t shy to share their opinion on Manziel. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner had four practices before his first CFL start in Montreal.

“He can make plays, but he’s got to be smart with the football,” head coach Mike Sherman told TSN at halftime.

Manziel has certainly thrown s%** load of interceptions.
