There are those outside of the Bills organization that think rookie QB EJ Manuel will just be handed the starting job. C.J. Spiller said it couldn’t be further from the truth.
In an appearance on NFL Network Spiller had an interesting perspective on how the QB competition applies to Manuel.
“If you look from the outside looking in, you would think so with us taking a quarterback that high, but in this league you have to prove yourself and you have to earn it,” said Spiller. “Hopefully that’s the way EJ wants it to be. Hopefully he doesn’t want the coaches just to give him the job just because he was taken in the first round; hopefully he wants to go and earn the job just like everybody else on this team. You want to earn that playing time and to be able to get out there on the field.”
