Dean Cain

Warning to Manziel

Don't Be Like Matt Leinart!

Johnny Manziel is flashing shades of Matt Leinart -- and it's NOT a good thing -- so says Dean Cain -- who warns the QB that "going Hollywood" can backfire in a big way.  

Cain -- who made it all the way to Bills training camp before an injury dashed his NFL hopes -- was in Malibu when he hailed Manziel as a great athlete ... "but there's a lot of athletes in the NFL."

That's when the Leinart comparison began -- "I do remember another quarterback back in the day, coming out and being a high draft choice and hanging out with the Hollywood starlets and stars and never really doing that well."

When we suggested that Matt -- who reportedly dated Paris Hilton and Kristin Cavallari -- was still living the life and scoring hot chicks, Cain shot back with a reality check: 

"I'm not saying Matt Leinart can't get ladies ... but he cant get a contract in the NFL now."

I love how this story was on yahoo news and of course the title of the story was Dean Cain compares Manziel to Leinhart.. Which isn't really what I got out of the quotes.. He was just saying, more or less..Don't get to Hollyweird, and just focus on your job, which is football. And that Matt got more focused on Hollywood than the NFL and look how it turned out. I was in AZ when the Cards selected Matt, and even then I was like ok...lets see how this goes. (never really believed in high profile USC QB's, maybe it's cause Im a SunD evils fan), but after the contract was signed I was like this is insane..Never give a rookie QB that much on his first year.. Thanks to Matt and the Cards lessons were learned..First never give rookie that much cash, second..The Cards have never gone after a rookie QB in the draft since.. Which that part is sad, cause they could have picked some QB's that turned out to be great. And for Matt to respond on twitter insulting Dean.. HA! What a loser..I watched him throughout his professional career (if you want to call it that) that dude learned real quick in his first year, that he could get paid obscene amounts of money and sit on the bench with a fake injury or by throwing a bunch of picks. Worse QB to ever come out of the draft, and he insults Dean Cain.. That's funny..What a joke. Dean Cain seems to be cool. I know he's doing more "christian" movies but good for him. My kids and I enjoy them, and what's funny is Dean's still working on movies...what's Matt doing?
