Bills head coach Doug Marrone mentioned it in his Wednesday press conference knowing there’s been some criticism outside the organization for the recent performance of rookie QB EJ Manuel. He affirmed that Manuel is the starter going forward and that after his first five starts he was among the best rookie QBs in his first five starts since 2000.
“People have to understand that having lost those four weeks has hurt him. He was really coming on and to put things in perspective, everyone knows he’s our starting quarterback, there’s no problem there,” said Marrone. “But when you look at quarterbacks with five starts and you go back to 2000 with all the young quarterbacks he has the third best rating out of all those quarterbacks. So we’ve got to keep him coming along.”
Here is the statistical chart that Marrone referenced.
