E.J. MANUEL NEWS

2014 All-Sophomore Team

Houston Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins QB E.J. Manuel 2013 was not exactly the year of the QB. While I there’s a lot to like about Manuel, there really weren’t any other option. Mike Glennon lost his starting job in Tampa and Geno Smith is terrible. When Mike Vick is your “backup” and you are arguably the worst starter in the league, chances are you’re not keeping your job very...

Stock rising on Bills' QB Jeff Tuel

When your starting quarterback has developed a nasty habit of suffering knee injuries, the training camp battle for the backup job tends to be conducted with a bit more urgency. Yes, the sample size is small for EJ Manuel, and perhaps his 2013 rookie season was an anomaly as two of his three knee injuries could certainly be classified as fluky. Nonetheless, they happened, and he...

What does the future hold for Buffalo Bills’ EJ Manuel?

There has been a lot of talk this off season about the future of the team, a lot of it pointed in the direction of Doug Whaley and Doug Marrone. Many feel that if the Bills don’t make the playoffs this year that both men will be out of job, normally a coach and GM have a three year window to show they can win but with new ownership on the way that process has been expedited. With...

Why I think Jim Schwartz will be under more pressure than EJ Manuel

  I know what you are thinking…Why would I not go for the QB? QB driven league. The last dozen or so who have won the Super Bowl were either good or great. They move the broadcast needles and all that sort of stuff.Yet, when you are a fan, sometimes, you tend to lower your own expectations when things don’t start going your way. You start to rationalize. Sometimes the logic...

Buffalo Bills quarterback E.J. Manuel will struggle as a sophomore

Young QBs Ryan Tannehill and EJ Manuel among those vying for FSLR's ultimate sleeper title

Improvement of Mechanics is key to the success of EJ Manuel

To this day I believe that EJ Manuel was not drafted with the intention to start week 1 against the Patriots. Since we will never know the real answer it’s not even worth debating it, but I do think that Kevin Kolb was set to start under center for the 2013 season while we groomed EJ Manuel into an NFL quarterback. Obviously that plan was changed as we rushed Manuel into the NFL...
