Johnny is picking up blitzes and making hot reads

Here, the offense is driving on what will be their touchdown drive in the third quarter. Manziel thinks the Browns protection is set as it appears the 49ers defense is blitzing four.

However, the 49ers use a stunt and still blitz four, as it frees up the left outside edge rusher. He has a free release at Manziel. Manziel quickly picks up the blitz and makes a quick throw at his hot receiver Gary Barnidge. This play shows the awareness of Manziel and how he has a firm gasp of the Browns offense and how to adjust against defenses.
