A reason to believe in Spiller.

I've talked to a lot of people about CJ Spiller. Personally, I still think he can be a great NFL back, even though many people have told me no. And today I read something that really intrigued me.

I was not around when OJ Simpson played or much of any of the Bills history for that matter, but I read that it took 3 years for OJ Simpson to develop into a great NFL back (in an article about if OJ's name should stay on the wall, written by Larry Felser in 2006). I remember going to the first home preseason game of Spiller's rookie year, my uncle told me that he looks like OJ and that he will be the starter this year over Jackson,  (a lot has changed with Jackson now though, so i don't think this should be the case and still didn't at the time).  Of course its a different Era of the NFL, but i think a good running back is a good running back no matter what period. So after reading about this I am more hopeful than I was previous.

Any thoughts on this comparison, and is this a reason to be more patient with Spiller?
