What EJ has gained over the past month

As we profiled on today (Saturday), EJ Manuel has taken steps to improve his personal game within the scope of Buffalo’s offense. A big part of that is his commitment to being a more aggressive player who makes decisions with authority in the passing game.

In talking with, Manuel shared some of what he’s learned and tried to apply to his game over the past four weeks.

“If you turn the ball over, obviously you don’t want to do that, but at the same time you’ve got to play aggressively,” he said. “That’s one thing that’s helped me with the scout team reps I’ve had is let it rip. Obviously you don’t want to be wild or reckless in your decision making, but at the same time you want to try to fit this ball in against (Stephon) Gilmore, what better corner to practice on. So I think all those things in combination are going to help.”

I asked Manuel if and when he does get back on the field this season, how might these past four weeks of work help him most. He wasn’t certain, but he is confident that the way in which he has attacked the past month will only help him.

“I think it’ll be one of those things where time will tell. I’m just going to continue to work hard and try to take the positives out of it and look at it for what it is.”
