The Fake Football:
No, CJ Spiller shouldn’t be the first overall pick. That honor belongs to Adrian Peterson, and Adrian Peterson alone.
I know what you’re thinking. You probably hate-clicked the headline, and now that your assumption of it being a mere hyperbolic ploy to stroke my groundless opinion seems to be correct, you’re ready to hate-click the exit button.
Or maybe you’re generally curious to see if I’m actually able to talk you out of drafting AD first overall.
Either way, allow me to at least humor the both of us.
I think it’s best that we start by clearing up a misconception regarding the first overall pick. We all agree that it should be a running back. If you don’t agree then you have a little more research to do. But what some don’t understand is that the first pick is the most logical one; not necessarily the one who is going to score the most points over the course of a season.
Sounds odd, doesn’t it? Thankfully we have history (and spreadsheets) to shed a little light on the matter.

Kevin Kolb will likely be the Bills Week 1 starter as EJ Manuel reportedly needs knee surgery. See how long Manuel will miss.

Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback EJ Manuel was in a heated
competition to be the team’s starter Week 1 with veteran signal caller Kevin Kolb. Entering the weekend, it was up in the air who would be under center to
open the regular season. However, The Bills announced yesterday that Manuel
will undergo “minor” knee surgery, which will sideline him for the remainder of
Buffalo quarterback EJ Manuel had what Bills coach Doug Marrone would only call ''a procedure'' on his left knee Sunday morning and will miss the rest of the preseason.
Marrone, who declined to characterize the medical attention the quarterback received as anything other than a ''procedure,'' says it was ''very, very minor'' and that...
With three weeks left until the regular season, here are my three questions based on what we’ve seen from the Bills so far:
1) Is Kevin Kolb simply rusty or should we assume the worst?
Kolb completed 13 of 21 pass attempts against the Vikings on Friday night for 111 yards. If you just saw those numbers (which, due to the blackout, many of you did), you’d think Kolb was good...
Tonight’s Buffalo Bills Minnesota Vikings preseason game offered some important insights into the team, but it was still a preseason game. So, the Buddy Nixon’s crew enthusiasm was a little more muted than usual. Not so for this lively guy sitting in front of us, who was having as good a time as anyone ever. Check it:
Now that’s just awesome. The wave’s a little tired, but...
EJ Manuel has had the look of a guy that is ready to start the season for the Bills and utilize his skill set to make the Bills offense more dynamic. Unfortunately, he will need a minor surgery (perhaps a scope) that will keep him out the rest of he preseason. So we will see more Kevin Kolb. Yippee.

Kevin Kolb did not make a bold statement in the battle for starting quarterback and the Buffalo Bills’ defense looked good in Friday night’s exhibition against the Minnesota Vikings.
Kolb managed to engineer just four first downs in five series against the Vikings’ defensive starters. On the last two drives of the first half against Minnesota’s second-stringers Kolb drove...

With every passing week in the preseason, we start to get more of a feel about which players may make a splash and how a team may perform as a whole for the upcoming year. Although Adrian Peterson did not play in this game, the Vikings and Bills did show us some things to keep an eye on for both next week and for the regular season. 1.

Remember last week when I wrote about hating preseason football? Yea, this is precisely why. While the Buffalo Bills escaped Week 1 of their preseason unscathed, in Week 2 they weren’t so lucky…
I was driving home yesterday when I got a notification on my phone that said “EJ Manuel to miss final two games of the preseason due to knee injury.” The game the...
This is how we get Matt Flynn, Matt Cassell, and Kevin Kolb ruining NFL franchises. Gruden does seem to love everybody but a first rounder?
You know if Gruden thinks this, then there are executives and coaches around the league who feel the same. When will they learn?
