Johnny Football’s early departure from the Manning Passing Academy was a well-documented one, as reports on the reason for his leaving have been mixed. Did he actually oversleep, or was he hungover from a night of heavy partying? Sources suggest the latter.

The truth is that this really isn’t all that big of a deal, as Johnny was a camp instructor and not a participant. He is, after all, a college kid, and it’s no surprise that he was trying to go out on a summer night. However, it’s his trail of lies that ultimately got him the boot, which makes us question his character.

Johnny could have easily gotten off if he just admitted to Archie Manning (Peyton & Eli’s father and camp supervisor) where he was the previous night and why he was late to a Saturday practice. According to Rumors & Rants, Manning knew exactly about Johnny’s whereabouts thanks to his eyes in the streets, but Manziel decided to give him a lame ass excuse anyway.

Johnny was spotted with Alabama quarterback and fellow camp coach, AJ McCarron, out on Bourbon Street in New Orleans (about an hour away from Nicholls State University where the camp is held) as late as 4am in the morning. However, it was revealed that the incident with Archie wasn’t even the final driving force in him leaving.

It was an incident with Dartmouth head coach Buddy Teevans, who was in charge of creating schedules for the camp’s coaches and players. Teevans saw it as unfair for Manziel to receive preferential treatment by getting a second chance, as any other person at the camp would be punished. And after Johnny gave them the same fake excuse, Buddy and Archie saw it best that he left the camp.

Add this to the fact that Johnny lied to his own mother about where he really was that fateful Friday night, and we can finally get to see a better picture of who Johnny Football is — your average lying ass college kid. Oh well, he’s still the man and is probably going to kill it again next season.
