Brett Favre loves him some Brett Favre. So it's not surprising that he's digging former Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel because, well, he reminds Favre of himself. In an interview with Nate Davis of USA Today, Favre said he saw Manziel play against Ole Miss where the QB passed for 346 yards and ran for 124, on the way to a 41-38 win. While watching that game, Favre thought he was watching tape of himself when he was Manziel’s age...
quote:

“I almost thought I was watching film of a young Brett Favre,” the old Favre said. ”I didn’t think I did a lot of things well [in college at Southern Miss], but he did. And and I liked the attitude of ‘whatever it takes’ — from that standpoint, I liked him.”

“I didn’t throw near as well as him. He may have that capability — unbelievable throws and can makes plays with his feet. I was impressed.”
Imagine that.
