Johnny Manziel and the Montreal Alouettes struggled a bit in the first quarter of their game on Friday against the Hamilton Tiger Cats.

Manziel threw an interception on his first series and was picked off three more times in Montreal's 50-11 loss to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor and 2014 National Football League first-round pick finished the night just 11-for-20 for 104 yards and four interceptions. Manziel's second came after he scrambled away from pressure and tried to flip the ball to running back Tyrell Sutton, but the ball went off Sutton's hands and into a defender's.

It added that the US' "aggressive attitude serves no goal ", and vowed that it would respond in equal measure. Treasury Department's decision, calling on the U.S. administration to reverse its "wrong decision".

In his first ever pass attempt in the league, the quarterback managed to throw an ugly interception that left him wondering what else could possibly go wrong. I feel I can contribute that for sure. The Tiger-Cats signed the former Cleveland Browns first round pick with the troubled past this season after he was given clearance to play in the CFL.

His first interception came on Montreal's second offensive play, a ball thrown into coverage in the middle of the field. "Only up from here", Manziel said after the game.

But after his CFL debut with the Montreal Alouettes Friday evening, it seems Manziel can not catch a break.

Manziel will be leading a team that has won once in its last 17 outings dating back to last August, but which hopes it has found the quarterback it needs to be a contender. These are things that I've repped a lot in the past.'. The defense was porous and the special teams even gave up points, when a punt was blocked and returned for a touchdown. For the first time in his career, he was intercepted four times, and Montreal trailed his former team 38-3 at halftime. A few years ago, Montreal's former general manager Jim Popp, who held the rights to another college sensation - Tim Tebow - told me Tebow's skills were ideal for the CFL because one less down makes a versatile quarterback more unsafe. "If I would've been judged after one game at Texas A&M, I wouldn't be where I am today". But those moments were few and far between.

To his credit, Manziel owned up to the poor performance and promised to be better.
