E.J. MANUEL NEWS

Winners and losers from the first round of the NFL Draft

The 2014 NFL draft is stacked with talented players, but not every team came out of the first round smelling like roses. The Cleveland Browns and St. Louis Rams owned the draft with multiple picks, while the Buffalo Bills were among teams that made head-scratching decision.

Unfortunately, the majority of the focus was put on the injuries that the former Florida State Seminoles standout had to deal with, which limited his progression mightily. Recently, Manuel revealed that he has underwent a minor procedure on his...

Jameis Winston’s First Half Stats Are Absurd, E.J. Manuel Is Loving It

Manuel Never Won When it Mattered Most

I have to tell you Bills fans, I remain conflicted about our 2013 first round draft pick.  In large part it’s because I live in Florida, and have seen plenty of Florida State football and their QB EJ Manuel.  First, he’s a good kid and if he plays well, he will be very popular in Western New York. Manuel could be the face of our franchise for years to come, but I have my reservations...

Manuel may not start right away, but it won’t be because the playbook is too hard.  According to ESPN.com, Manuel told SiriusXM  Radio that the system and offense at Florida State was may more difficult than...

EJ Manuel Says Bills’ West Coast Offense Is Easier to Learn Than Florida State’s Pro-Style Attack

This is one of those tricky situations where a player thinks he’s praising himself and his new team, but it really comes out sounding much worse than he might have meant. EJ Manuel, the Bills’ first-round quarterback, said Buffalo’s offense is easier to learn than the pro-style offense he ran at Florida State. That may be because Buffalo’s head coach and offensive coordinator...

Bills Pick EJ Manuel for Success

Buffalo Bills Draft EJ Manuel In 1st Round: Big Mistake!

The 2013 NFL Draft had a lack of quality at the quarterback position, so the Buffalo Bills wanted to waste a first round pick on this position. Why not draft another wide receiver like Justin Hunter out of Tennessee? Kevin Kolb can get the job done for one year until next year's draft. Next year, the NFL Draft will have more quality at the quarterback position. EJ Manuel is...

The quarterback position was expected to be unpredictable in the 2013 draft, but if anyone saw E.J. Manuel as the lone quarterback taken after a trade down from the Bills, well, congratulations. Maybe that person has a future in palm reading. It’s tough to process right now that a quarterback didn’t go until No. 16. And it was Manuel! The same quarterback that couldn’t beat...
