Former Cowboys RB Emmitt Smith gave his thoughts on Browns QB Johnny Manziel's party boy lifestyle in an interview with 105.3 The Fan, via CBS Sports...
quote:

“That lifestyle is going to be a short lifestyle — a short career lifestyle — if he continues that,” “As we used to say, you can’t keep burning the candle at both ends of the stick. The candle gets small fairly quick. Johnny is going to have to figure it out.

“Hopefully he’s not doing anything to hurt himself outside of drinking — which is going to harm his body and harm his performance anyway. At the end of the day, he’s going to have to learn to manage those things.”

“First, let’s recognize — Johnny is young. I was young and dumb myself at one point in time,” Smith said. “But maturity itself, and maturing as a professional athlete, is something that is required of every pro football player. I think right now Johnny Manziel is going to get a glimpse of what negative press can do for you. A lot of people think negative press is good press — or any press is good press. It’s not.”

Its the truth. Johnny will be here today and gone tommorow, athletic ability will make you a star playing college ball, but you need much more than that to make it on the next level.

Michael Irvin approves, while snorting a line off a hooker's crack.

Fantastic comments, and I wouldn't expect anything less from a consummate professional like Smith.
