The Bills fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday 27-14. The offense looked inconsistent and basically boring for the most part. The defense was sound and look like the still have a couple of ends to tighten up but not to the extent that the offense is looking at.

What should be done with EJ Manuel? Tim Tebow is still available. Just saying. Manuel went 9-18 in the first half, and looked like Captain Check-down. No change from last year, still not taking any shots down the field, and hos reads and accuracy didn’t appear to have improved either. Manuel was our first round draft pick, 16th overall, in the 2013 draft. With Sammy Watkins as our first round draft pick in 2014 that really cost us two first rounds, we are out of options for next year, unless a trade happens.
Manuel is suppose to be the new face of the franchise and fill the quarterback void since Jim Kelly. At this point, hope is hanging on with all its might, but we have a cliff hanger scenario here.
EJ Manuel did go 10-10 for 135 yards in the second half with a touchdown. So there is that glimmer of hope, but as said before hanging by a thread. We can’t wait for EJ Manuel and company to come around in the second half. They need to come out of the gates running and not look back
The Bills will win games if they are up and have the lead. Playing from behind, is not an option for this team. Playing from behind is draining to a team and doing it on an everyday basis will kill this team quickly.
Doug Marrone is trying to change a history of losing and a philosophy at the same time. He doesn’t like to lose even in preseason. The rest of the team needs to start and grab hold of this and begin to move forward. Change is in the wind, is EJ Manuel part of it?
