Training camp is just around the corner. This means that the position competitions are right there as well. For me, this is the one of the most exciting parts of training camp. Wat should be the most exciting competition to keep an eye will be the quarterback competition between Manuel and Kolb.
Buffalo drafted EJ Manuel 16th overall as well as being the first chosen QB in the draft. Manuel is said to be te face of the franchise and drafting someone this high is not a statement that they were brought in as a backup.
For Kevin Kolb, he is hoping that his experience, and time in the league with the Eagles and Cardinals, will allow him to move past the new experiences that Manuel will be having, and begin to settle in and worry more about the new playbook rather than what he would do in certain situations.
Most competitions that players go into the coach usually has a favorite or someone he looks at ust a bit harder. In Buffalo, this may not be the case this year. Without any returning coaches, or a majority of players that have played for these coaches on the team, there is going to be a fresh slate for everyone to work off of and provide for a true competition setting.
Let the football begin!
