And not just with his arm and legs.

On multiple occasions Friday night in Hamilton, the Tiger-Cats' newest quarterback got an earful from Toronto Argonauts defenders. And Manziel gave it right back.

"I'm not here to be pushed over," Manziel said after the game (via The Score). "You can come at me because my name's in the papers, my name's on TV. You can come at me. I'm not backing down. I'm here for a reason. I'm here to play ball. I'm not going to be treated like s---."

Manziel said he learned some valuable lessons Friday while completing 9 of 11 passes for 80 yards and adding 10 yards rushing on two carries.

“Still feeling it out. It's a different game," Manziel said of the adjustment to Canadian football's unique rules and rhythms.

Still, The Score noted, Manziel made plays with his legs, found open receivers on scrambles and showed flashes of why his new coach, June Jones, suggested last year that Manziel will become the best player in CFL history. t-hamilton-ticats-tiger-cats-argonauts-trash-talk/1pksrw9zcu lav1kows50o97fce

I find it rather funny that we are seeing all this hype from south of the border TV outlets like ESPN and FS1 surrounding Manziel's move to the CFL without any sort of guarantee that he starts a single game at QB for the Ticats anytime soon as they are slated to roll with Jeremiah Masoli the former Oregon and Ole Miss QB as their #1 to begin the season in Week 1. They could still be waiting a while before they can document Manziel taking a single snap in a CFL regular season game.

Im with you Ian, but for stateside CFL players, for those guys to be talking about should mean it won't bel long before their televising CFL games. Espn was doing it for a few years but would shit can them once NFLX started.
