Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone was pleased with EJ Manuel’s performance after Monday nights live scrimmage saying “I think it’s unbelievable to get him this amount of reps” also adding “The one thing he’s shown in a positive way is the mistakes that he has made during the course of practice he’s come back and not made those same mistakes.”
After the offense began poorly with Manuel throwing a pair of interceptions one of which was returned for a touchdown, Manuel bounced back in a big way throwing a slew of both long and short touchdown passes, and also leading a 7 play 70 yard scoring drive.
I fully expected the defense to present plenty of problems for whoever was on the field against them, and they wasted no time going to work. The Bills I believe will have one of the best defenses in the league this year thanks to Mike Pettine, which I think is going to result in Manuel being even better than he looks in these practices.
Fortunately we are going to find out in just 5 days here when the Bills play their first pre-season game against the Colts on Sunday. That is when we will see to a better extent how both sides of the ball can compete with other teams in this league. Get ready Bills fans, the season is almost here and we have plenty of action coming in the next month to keep us entertained. Go Bills!
