CJ Spiller feels EJ Manuel learned from Kyle Orton

Everyone feels the Buffalo Bills need to draft a quarterback, and they definitely need to bring in competition, but CJ Spiller feels former firat rounder EJ Manuel learned from Kyle Orton last year.

“He learned that you can’t be buddy buddy with everybody,” Spiller said. “You’re the face of the franchise, you’re the quarterback so you have to demand everything…I think early on he didn’t really didn’t understand how to step on guys’ toes. Once Kyle took over, he saw what Kyle did and it helped him. 

“He’s a tremendous worker. The guy comes to work every day, prepares unbelievably. He’s in there first, last one to leave, so he has all that stuff. It was just that buddy buddy. You know how it is, you come in with some guys in your draft and you don’t really want to step on their toes. As I told him ‘You’re the quarterback you have to (step on guys’ toes) and I think he learned that.”

This sounds sorta like a shot at Manuel, but it could be a valuable learning lesson for the former FSU player.
