CJ Spiller Is This Team’s Starting Running Back


 

With one week in the books controversy is already starting with some Bills fans. CJ Spiller who is in line to have a great explosive season didn’t start off well and now is looked at as a potential backup for week 2 in some people’s eyes. Listening to it today from people just made me shake my head.

Last season this Bills team I actually thought had the pieces to have an ok season but it just never happened. One major reason was the use of CJ Spiller. His play showed the world that he has what it takes and could produce weekly. Always having people on the edge of their seats waiting to see what he was going to do next. All of that over the course of a whole season was basically gone with one game this past Sunday. Spiller you could say was nowhere near the top of his game but it happens. I’m not going to make excuses for him because I know this game would’ve been great to win but really after one game?

My feelings of Fred Jackson haven’t really changed over the past year. I don’t care for the guy and the thought of him having one decent season is not enough for me to give him that attention. Getting older he is surely piling up the miles and injuries have hurt him as of late. I not going to say the guy is terrible by any means but I think much of his better days are well behind him. His role now as a backup is more than ok with me. Spiller can help this team in so many ways that sometimes just being on the field as a decoy continues to have the defense second guessing their coverage. CJ I believe will indeed have the season everyone is hoping for and also hopefully lead this team beyond the regular season.

Moving on to Carolina I think the Bills and Spiller will have a good game. The offense and Spiller will be ready to go and the running attack will be better and have people a little less edgy. Are you on the Jackson bandwagon or is it Spiller the guy everyone had high hopes for just a week ago?

    I don’t believe this about Spiller, people’s view or that there is any controversy. Seems a made up report. Nobody I know has ever felt Spiller was not the man! If there is, I said IF there is, then they are not a true fan, but a fair weather, flavor of the month fan or a reporter on a slow news day!! GO BILLS!!

    Believe it. I heard it from multiple radio stations talking about Jackson and should he start and/or play a lot bigger role. On top of that fantasy questions as well have been circulating. I don’t agree one bit and hopefully CJ can silence this.

    Sorry, I can’t believe you or this RUMOR! I listen to WGR 550 am radio daily till 10 am. I have not heard one thing about this on that station. They are the Bills station! I also listen to John Murphy at 6 pm till he finishes, sometimes at 8 pm or 9 pm.I haven’t heard anything from any radio guy about this! Any other local radio stations are not close enough to the Bills, so anything they say is not with any real knowledge. So, where/what are these radio stations? Kiss102, wwkb 1520 or some other non-Bills station like the EDGE? If you stand by your rumor, state who you say they are or just STFU! GO BILLS!!

    First off its not a rumor from anyone besides fans as I stated. Wgr 550, 1270 the fan and espn radio all had callers wanting the change. That is what this is about the FANS. So then I simply wanted to remind people the hard times we dealt with last season when Spiller didn’t get the touches he deserved and we seen what happened with that.

    John, I find it hard to fathom the fans your talking about know football. I stand behind WGR 550 not saying this crap about Spiller vs Jackson. Fans, ok, but fans, me included don’t always know much on the inside of the team. Comments tend to come from opinion not fact, too often opinion clouds what we say and mean. I have stated my opinion many times, John the backlash is just plain wrong. IT is my opinion, like yours, opinion is just that, if we state a fact, then debate it, right? 1270 and ESPN radio, who really listens to them? I have ESPN radio on my I Pod touch. It sucks, in fact I’m about to delete it. Another thing, on my I Pod, the navigation sucks, limitation is bad, too little and just a terrible app! 1270??

  • John

    1270 the fan am buffalo sports radio 12-3

  • chas territo

    Do not listen to them, not many listeners like that station, now I know why.

  • John

    Who doesn’t like it? Its alright and thanks for your opinion
