Johnny Manziel put on a little display for those who might have doubted whether he can still throw rockets all over the field.

Remember a couple days ago when I said he looked like he was in game shape? Well, this video should permanently silence any doubters.

Manziel threw a ball that appears to have gone at least 70 yards in the air, and hit a receiver perfectly in stride.

That ball was incredibly well thrown. I understand that there’s no pressure on Manziel, there’s no defensive backs he needs to read but that was a stunning throw.

There aren’t a ton of guys in the NFL right now capable of throwing a ball 75 yards accurately. It’s just one video of him slinging it, but I’m loving this video. Shows that his arm strength hasn’t dropped off one bit. In fact, I don’t remember him even being able to chuck it this far in college.

It really does look like #ComebackSZN is going incredibly well.
