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.
