Today there were rumors out of Buffalo that EJ Manuel could be done this year in Buffalo if he doesn’t improve. Well one former Bill quarterback thinks that would be a mistake. Jim Kelly the Hall of Fame quarterback says EJ has it all.
Kelly said on NFL Network’s Total Access that Manuel “has it all” and could benefit from playing under first-year offensive coordinator Greg Roman.
“He (Manuel) knows he’s got to get it done on the field,” Kelly said. “Now he’s got competition with Matt Cassel coming in who has a very, very strong arm. It’s a new system, for both of them, it’s a learning experience for both of them. We’ll see what happens.
“But that is one key position that — I don’t care if you’re Vince Lombardi, Don Shula whoever it may be — if you don’t have a guy under center that can get the job done week in and week out, they’re not going anywhere.”
I guess we need to pump the brakes on the EJ talk…
