Former Chicago Bear middle linebacker Brian Urlacher is not a fan of Johnny Manziel's antics on the field.

The former Pro Bowler is now an analyst with Fox Sports 1. He told the panel recently that the Texas A&M quarterback "acted like a punk." Urlacher also said that Manziel needs to learn how to deal with the heckling from the players on an opposing team.

“He’s the reigning Heisman winner. He’s making plays out there and running around and running his mouth obviously, but he’s going to have to learn to deal with that.”

Manziel, whose nickname is Johnny Football, burst onto the college football scene in 2012, winning the Heisman Trophy.

Manziel was penalized for unsportmanlike conduct after sitting out the first half in Texas A&M's season opening win against Rice University.

The reigning Heisman Trophy winner was penalized for an NCAA violation when he allegedly received compensation in exchange for signing autographed footballs.

Texas A&M's next game is this Saturday against Sam Houston State before their showdown with defending national champion Alabama on Sept. 14.
