Johnny Manziel being compared to Matthew Stafford is never a good thing.

"Party on, Matt!"

"Party on, Johnny!"

The worst thing ever to happen to Texas A&M starting quarterback Johnny Manziel has happened. No, not the Wright Thompson article for ESPN. It's being compared to former Georgia  and current Detroit Lion QB Matthew Stafford by FOX Sports' Jack Kuhlenschmidt.

"Not so fast. Let's take a minute to gain some much-needed perspective on all of the recent Johnny Manziel drama. This kid isn't the first All-American to be seen at a party, and the world didn't end when this sort of thing happened before.

Remember Matthew Stafford? You should, seeing as he is the starting quarterback for the Detroit Lions. He also won three bowl games during his time at the University of Georgia on his way to being selected first overall in the 2009 NFL Draft.

Oh yeah, and Staff also loves to party. His penchant for red solo cups definitely didn't hold him back in college."

Does Johnny Manziel really need to be compared to a Georgia QB who managed to become a first pick in the draft while still managing to underperform in college? Or has gone on to underperform in the NFL? Or manages to be the fattest-looking 232 QB in the NFL? Didn't think so either. 

Of course, it could be worse. Manziel could be compared to Heisman winner and NFL washout Matt Leinart...oh wait, that did happen
