Bills RB C.J. Spiller said it flatly again on Monday. In Week 1 he said he played bad, but after a week of focusing on correcting some bad habits that resurfaced, Spiller put up over 100 yards on the ground in Week 2 on just 16 carries in a big bounce back effort.
“Once I looked at the film (from Week 1) I knew I played bad because I was impatient, I was rushing it,” said Spiller. “So last week the whole time during practice I just went back to being patient letting everything develop and just taking what they give me. (Sunday) was pretty much a display of what I had been doing during practice.”
Spiller, who had almost an exact 60-40 split in terms of snaps with Fred Jackson liked the rotation the coaches had going between them on offense.
“We had a great rotation on me and Fred, and that’s what we’re going to need,” he said. “I think this team, especially offensively it’s going to start working on the run game. It’s going to have to open things up for the receivers.”
Spiller was most appreciative of the men up front, who provided some holes against a pretty solid Carolina run front.
“Them guys I have all the confidence in my offensive line. It doesn’t matter who we play,” said Spiller. “Carolina is a great defense. I’m not taking anything away from them, they haven’t given up that many yards in a while. But our guys had confidence that we would be able to run the ball. If they have confidence then I have confidence. We just kept talking throughout the week and we knew certain plays were going to be really big for us and they were. So it’s good for those guys to go out there and run block the way they did and provide pass protection as well. It was a good thing for us offensively.”
