Do the doubters fuel EJ?

Bills QB EJ Manuel knows the magnitude of this his third NFL season and is all in when it comes to his efforts to win the starting quarterback job this summer in training camp. Manuel has had his share of doubters since he was made a first-round pick of the Bills back in 2013, but do the doubters fuel him all the more?

That was a question posed by NFL Network’s Kim Jones to Manuel, and though he didn’t directly say they do, he gave indication that was the case.

“I fuel myself as well,” said Manuel indicating doubters do fuel him. “But I think just moving forward and being excited about a new opportunity and obviously having coach [Rex] Ryan come in and give you that confidence as a head coach coming from him means a lot to us as his players. I’m just really excited and happy to be back in Buffalo.”

Manuel is never one to seek out criticism for motivation, which is probably why he didn’t give a direct response. His self-motivation is usually more than enough.
