Twitter reacts to Johnny Manziel getting first CFL start

On Tuesday, news broke that Johnny Manziel will finally get his first start in the CFL playing for the Montreal Alouettes this Friday against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The same team that traded Manziel to Montreal, which is an interesting twist of fate.

It’s been a long time since Manziel played in a meaningful pro game that wasn’t part of The Spring League. In fact, the last game he played in the NFL was way back in 2015. So this is a pretty big deal, both for Manziel and his fans.

Speaking of his fans, let’s jump right into some of the best reactions we saw on Twitter to this big news.
