Deion Sanders: People Don’t Like Johnny Manziel Because He Has “Ghetto Tendencies” (W/ AUDIO)


(AllHipHop News) Deion Sanders is one of the greatest cornerbacks of all time, but this past Wednesday he was giving out hood passes. During his interview on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, Neon Deion explained how Manziel’s “ghetto tendencies” are the root of the negative criticism the young quarterback has received.

The criticism about Johnny Manziel’s inadequacies to be an NFL QB have ranged from lack of pocket discipline to his God given height (5′ 11). However, for the trash talking legend himself, Sanders says the real criticism centers on one of Manziel’s traits:

Oh, please. I love Johnny Football. See, the reason people won’t accept Johnny Football is because Johnny Football has ghetto tendencies. I love Johnny Football.

Manziel has been criticized heavily in the past for his flashy ways. Most notably, during a game against Rice University back in September 2013 where he was benched taunting. Deion claims that is all apart of what makes up “ghetto tendencies”:

Because he was successful, he made it, and he let you all know he made it, and he was cocky, he was flamboyant, and he let you know.

  • MrNoName2K

    IDK about ghetto tendencies but what people are failing to realize is that this is just a KID. What do people expect? He’s coming fresh outta college and is still accustomed to that lifestyle. Let the man adjust and he’ll be pretty good.

    • EniggaMA

      nuff said

    • Antwon Grant

      point taken, but sometimes we gotta stop using the disclaimer, he’s just a kid and giving people passes….there are “kids” out here robbing, killing, selling and using drugs…and we can’t give it a pass and say he’s just a kid….Manziel hasn’t done any of that but we cant make the excuse for everything he does either..JMO

      • MrNoName2K

        Straight up, if i was a freshman in college and came in and ran sh*t, all over ESPN, all in the news, and then got the Heisman(College Footballs highest honor) id be a lil cocky, talkin a lil sh*t too. Boys are gonna be boys. Why not?? The thing is that he’s being micromanaged for everything he does now and oh lets not forget about the cameras in his face 24/7. He’s just enjoying life and people expect him to act like he’s been in that position before. Nothing wrong with a little youthful exuberance..what has he done so wrong anyways???

    • brotha_man

      not to pull the race card….fugg it! if he were black the media wouldnt say he just another kid, they would call him a tattooed thug. I dont give johnny the “kid” pass. take responsibility and do the right thing.

  • JUSROMAN

    Deion sure has my vote for Donkey of the Day or better yet, week. SMH at the ingonrace in his statement…

    • rocnation30

      NAW i don’t think so….. its true…thats why now no one is gonna draft him in the top 10…he will mid to late 1st round…owners don’t like when u are white playing jayz and drake at your pro day…but its just who he is

      • JUSROMAN

        No doubt my brother, but why is Deion now denying those comments he made about Manziel just yesterday?? Sure you don’t want to throw your vote in the hat now???

      • rocnation30

        umm probably cause he don’t wanna lose his job at NFL network…..what chew think???

      • JUSROMAN

        I can roll with that notion bruh.

  • Troll_E_G

    So playing rap music makes u ghetto…the stereotyping continues

    • ZUBU

      No listening to Rap music does not make you Ghetto. Possibly Deion could have selected a different label, but I get the point Deion is making.

      @Troll what are you doing here? I thought for certain you would be somewhere gargling Jay Z’s nutt sack. Lil’ Gay-bait asss was running that trap yesterday, lil’ boy stay in your lane. Essentially STFU when grown folks are talking!

      • Troll_E_G

        Dude what u talking bout . I don’t do all that arguing…as I stated previously…stop crying over marketing tactics cause its bitch made ….u yourself may not be a bitch literally but your comment reeked of estrogen

    • redcons

      Listening to some rap music proves you are ghetto. Especially if you love and understand Gucci Mane and some of those other trap artists.

      • Troll_E_G

        Your opinion sounds very silly n stereotypical

  • TXKING25

    Not even going to read this article, with that said, People don’t like Johnny Manziel because he just isn’t a good QB for the NFL. People need to hold their tongue when they speak about race. Sometimes things aren’t about race, and this is one of those situations.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      AGREED

    • meanygreene

      that’s what they said about tebow

  • Pierre Carrillo

    I dont like him cuz he seems like a spoiled lil bitch

    • Django 2Chainz

      How Does he seem Spoil, Im Just Curious??

  • Guest

    I dis-agree, leaving the manning camp, etc, etc, is not “actin’ ghetto”

  • Sean Power

    deion just looking for a headline his not ghetto is just spoil not good of qb kids

  • Django 2Chainz

    What I dont understand is Why is the Headline about Jonny Football But the entire interview is about Desean Jackson smh

  • pauleyPee

    I fux with Johnny Football. I generally agree with Prime Time.

    • W.E.B. Du Bois

      nah – what he said was stupid, and wrong – race and acting ghetto is not related to manzeil in any kind of way – since you agree with Prime – then tell us Why you agree

      • redcons

        Talking trash, belittling others for fun, and unsportsmanlike conduct, are signs of “ghetto tendencies,” just like DJack flashing gang signs.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        wrong – talking in sports is in No Way relative to the destruction of communities, slaughter of families, prison life , etc, that goes with gangs

      • Troll_E_G

        Agreed

      • redcons

        Didn’t say that it does goes with gangs, but gangs are part of ghetto tendencies, as well as the destruction of communities, slaughter of families, prison life , etc, these are all signs of ghetto tendencies.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        nah – we talking about deon’s comments about johnny football – you agreed with him – and I showed you how you and he are wrong

      • pauleyPee

        I’m still waiting for how you showed this man he was wrong. All you did was state that he was wrong and argued that talking trash is not relative to things that go on in socially-challenged communities. That doesn’t address any WHYs or HOWs. WHYs and HOWs are what “showing”, in terms of argumentation, is. But I know, I know, ” (I’m) wrong.” You sound like a three year old who has learned a new phrase.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        LOL – last comment to you , your morals are So Low , your Feeble mind lets you think your Jibbrish you said is to be proud of – LOL
        you be you , WHILE I BE ME – LOL

      • pauleyPee

        There you go again… “Your morals are so low”. We call those “ad hom attacks” in the forensics world… Sense you obviously don’t know, ad homs are personal attacks on a person, as if they somehow diminish said person’s argument. Which, they don’t. But I guess you feel at a loss for words and therefore have only a lame sort of logic working to help you sooth the irritation of your ignorance.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        there is nothing on Earth you can teach me – and , your wrong again ! – you think Weezily trying to change the subject will hide your Stupid – but as proven , it don’t hide your Stupid

      • pauleyPee

        I mean, do I really need to get all into it like that? Deion’s statement isn’t that complicated. Ni__as in the hood talk shi*… For that matter, I’m a ni__a who talks shi*. People from non-urban/non-black communities tend to approach competition with a different demeanor. Is this that hard for you to understand?

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        your wrong again – whites talk shit in competition too – you must think white people are space aliens or something not human

      • pauleyPee

        You can keep making this “you’re wrong” argument, but I’m telling you what I know from experience. Of course any color of people talk shi*… But what I’m talking about are cultural conventions.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        your wrong Again — 1) – your a lyer – I never agrue, asking you to explain your point, and showing you how your wrong is Not arguing
        2) – then its obvious you have No experience, because talking trash is NOT cultural – Example? – look at baseball pitchers, they’re mostly all white, and they throw at a batter’s head for any little reason, they talk a lotta shit before they do that, its why the whole team knows they finna do it – look at the nfl – where 2 of the Biggist trash talkers in history are white – new gen Ingocnito, and old school Conrad Dobler and Butkist – look at the nhl with all the fighting – there’s alotta trash talk before the fight starts – and None of these people are “ghetto” but they’re hugh trash talkers

      • pauleyPee

        Uhhhhhhh. An argument is a reason or set of reasons given with the aim of persuading others that an action or idea is right or wrong. So???? Either way. I still don’t agree with you. And I’m not really going to lose much sleep over the whole issue either.

      • W.E.B. Du Bois

        Uhhhhhhh wrong again – I’m not try’n to persuade you of anything – I’m showing you and the readers How your wrong, it don’t matter that you don’t agree – only Why you don’t agree – which you have never said

  • anemia716

    how does flamboyance equate to ghetto tendencies? explain.

    being cocky, being flamboyant, being out spoken, none of those are “ghetto” traits

  • AK

    this is something drake would say
