- First, Manziel has the greater potential. His playmaking ability reminds me of Brett Favre, and he has the ability to be a star.
- In addition, Bridgewater's pro day was an utter embarrassment. A pro day is essentially a job interview, and he completely screwed it up. A lot of training money was poured into preparing for that one day, and his accuracy was about as good as a Cubs closer in a save situation. His supporters blame it on the fact that he wasn't wearing a glove. However, those people should keep in mind that he was throwing against air.
- Manziel played in the SEC. He played against NFL caliber players on a weekly basis and excelled. On the other hand, Bridgewater's toughest opponent last season was UCF. He hasn't proven that he can succeed against difficult teams.
Ultimately, I think that Manziel has a higher ceiling. Now, I'm not saying that Bridgewater can't be a good NFL quarterback or that Manziel is a sure-fire success. I just think that Bridgewater is more of a project and will take some time to develop. From the Packers perspective, this is a good thing.
