The Iron Sheik isn't known for handing out compliments as much as he is for dishing out insults.
On Sunday, the Sheik gave Johnny Manziel a stamp of approval -- despite a mediocre passing performance (13 of 32 for 136 yards and one interception) in Cleveland's 17-13 loss at Kansas City.

It was a different story on the ground as Johnny "Football" ran for 108 yards on 11 carries, rallying the Browns from a 17-3 halftime deficit to threatening twice in the fourth quarter for a possible go-ahead score.
Sure, it wasn't a win, but the Browns covered the 11½-point line.
Meanwhile, Sheiky Baby also was pleased with the Falcons dealing the Panthers their first loss of the season.
