CJ Spiller: Preparation is key

Posted by on August 9, 2012 – 8:39 am

We play our first preseason game this week! Everyone’s excited for football season starting and fans are going crazy.

The main thing for me to prepare for a game is to go over the stuff I’m going to be doing. The typical mindset throughout the week is going through the plays that are going to be run and making sure that I’m familiar with all the formations and play calls so that once the game starts I’m ready to go.

Even though it’s preseason, I never try to say, ‘Well I’m just going to do this much because my load is going to be light,’ because you never know what’s going to happen throughout the game. I try to soak up as much as I can throughout the week, especially during preseason.

I can take it back to my rookie year, when Fred Jackson and Marshawn Lynch went down in the same game. Who would have thought both of them would have gone down? But I prepared throughout that week like I was going to be the starter. Unfortunately it did happen, and I was ready to go.

I was always told that as long as the cameras rolling you want to go out there and put on a good tape. When you get to that first game though, that’s when you know it’s for real!

Can’t want to play some football! Go Bills!
