A partial list of quarterbacks greater than Johnny Manziel

Literally, and therefore also figuratively.

Christian Petersen

On December 6, 1992, Jonathan Paul Manziel was born. His parents didn't know then what he would grow up to be - a doctor, a salesman, maybe a modern dance performer. Surely, their minds were full of possibility, and of hope.

And maybe they were prescient enough to think he'd become a football player. Unfortunately, today those dreams died:
