Inside The Bills

Manuel looking to learn from Kolb

Posted by Chris Brown on July 29, 2013 – 9:09 pm

EJ Manuel might be in a competition for a starting role with Kevin Kolb, but they’re also teammates. That’s why the Bills top pick hasn’t been shy about asking Kolb questions.

“I ask him questions just to be exact on certain things,” said Manuel. “I think he’s been in the league for six years, more than five years I know so he has a lot of experience. So I ask him questions just, you know, how do you prepare for a practice and things like that.” 

Manuel, who has been buried in his playbook since the spring, believes he’s really improved his understanding in one particular area of the offense that is key for any quarterback.

“I understand my protections,” he said. “I feel a lot more comfortable. (I’ve) been going over that a lot during the offseason and also now with coach Hackett. And just the overall playbook. I feel that I have a better grasp on it than I did during OTAs”
