Former NFL MVP To Johnny Manziel: 'You're Gonna Get Wrecked, Son'

1988 NFL MVP Boomer Esiason isn't very impressed by Johnny Manziel.

On his morning talk show on WFAN radio, the former Bengals star gave his take on Manziel's play, conduct, and one-finger salute:

"He's not even remotely close to being ready," Esiason said. "If he opened as the starting quarterback at Pittsburgh in Week 1, he would get his ass kicked."

On Manziel's maturity:

"Whether or not you can handle it is going to be determined by your maturity level. And right now, this kid is a baby."

On whether Browns HC Mike Pettine should start Manziel on opening day:

"If I were Mike Pettine, I would have to have my head examined to put that kid on the field."

When the subject of Manziel's draft-night text came up, Esiason didn't mince words:

"[Wreck this league?] You’re gonna get wrecked, son."

Tell 'em how you really feel, Boomer.
