A bit of encouraging history for EJ

Posted by Chris Brown on September 9, 2013 – 9:13 am

EJ Manuel’s debut performance had far more ups and than downs despite the fact that Buffalo lost 23-21 to New England. The Wall Street Journal compared Manuel’s debut to that of other active quarterbacks in their first starts as rookies.

Manuel’s passer rating of 105.5 ranked fourth in NFL debuts for active signal callers in the league. The only three ahead of him were Robert Griffin (139.9), Matt Ryan (137) and the quarterback he squares off against Sunday, Cam Newton (110.4).

Here’s a more in depth look at the numbers.
