The Bills will look to get back on the winning track when they take on the Buccaneers in Tampa today. The Bills being healthy will get another chance to show their stuff as a complete football team. Today definitely I will be watching a few things that could play out into bigger questions later down the road.
First place I’ll be watching is at the quarterback position. Manuel back playing healthy for some games now has to show consistently in his play. He has had some great plays and some good games but he needs to put it all together. I hope in these last 4 games he can do that and also most importantly stay healthy. If he can’t would the Bills look to get another guy?
Next is at the cornerback position. Who will be covering Vincent Jackson? I say that McKelvin will be as he has been playing well. Gilmore hasn’t been anything close to last year and I understand he had the injury but now it seems like you never know what you’re going to get with him. It will be interesting to see if he gets back to any type of form from his play last year.
Lastly will Spiller be involved at all in the passing game? Coming in with 23 receptions at a 4.5 average is ridiculous. This guy should be getting the ball in space anyway possible. It seems that it was one thing Gailey did very well but this new staff is making it seem like it’s tough to do. Any production in this area would be progress in my opinion.
There you have some of the things that I’ll be watching as there’s really nothing too big to talk about in the injury department. Regardless of what happens in the playoff picture this team needs to show it can play when healthy. Will they? Time will tell.
