Tuel encouraged by pass game success

Bills undrafted rookie QB Jeff Tuel had a few big pass plays in Monday night’s live scrimmage. While some might expect Tuel to be happy for himself, the Washington State product was more happy for the offense as a whole.

Tuel feels like he and EJ Manuel are beginning to get a feel for how to throw the deep ball to their different receivers, knowing each is not the same. When we asked him if he feels they’re anywhere close to the refinement stage in passing to members of the receiving corps, he didn’t think they were quite there yet.

“It may be too early to say that, but we’ll continue to work on it and get better and the more you throw it the better you’re going to be at it,” Tuel said. “Taking those shots in the scrimmage means it may be more high percentage down the road in actual games. So like I said we’ll keep working on it and see where it takes us.”

Still, Tuel was encouraged that in their first test of live football they connected on big plays, which aren’t always high percentage.

“It’s awesome,” he said. “It’s great for myself and my confidence. It’s great for the receivers and it’s great for the O-line. It’s great for everybody, great for the coaching staff. It was our first kind of true test in football and we came out and did some good things so I’m happy about it.”
