After watching former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel in college, Brett Favre understands the comparisons between the two, according to Yahoo Sports.
Favre was impressed with Manziel after watching him play on Oct. 12 in the Aggies' 41-38 win over Mississippi. In that game, Manziel completed 31 of 39 passes for 349 yards and ran for 124 yards and two touchdowns.
"I almost thought I was watching film of a young Brett Favre," he told USA Today. "I didn't think I did a lot of things well (at Southern Mississippi), but he did. And I liked the attitude of 'whatever it takes' -- from that standpoint, I liked him."
