Did Manziel fail at football because of his bad decisions, or because he just isn't all that good?

Update:

I have to think it is the latter, because other players who behave badly are tolerated so long as they take care of business on the field. 

Update 2:

Fail at professional football.

    He was over rated,like many others,because his college system/teammates made him look better than he actually was...

    He was throwing to Mike Evans in college..

    EVANS COULD MAKE ANY QB LOOK GREAT.

    (Evans was a man among boys in college.)

    Bad decisions, because that kept him in trouble and took him literally off the field. Had he have been able to keep himself on the field and be DISCIPLINED, maybe he could've bounced back somewhat. Who knows ?

    It was a combination of both things. He's very self destructive.

    You're leaving out talent. 

    His skill level is very high. His talent is marginal. 

    His off the field problems hurt him, yes. But he might have gotten a 2nd or 3rd chance if he was 6'6 and could throw the ball 80 yards.

    His lack of drive to become a better player made him a not so good player in the NFL.
