I have been reading around the web on various sports sites and Buffalo Bills Fan Sites the reactions and responses to yesterdays game and the play of E. J. Manuel. Some are super high and some are super low. They range from the focus on the touch down and great come from behind win (the super high). Some focus on the bad turn overs and him putting the team in the hole in the first place (the super low).
Me I don't want to get too high or two low. I will be the first to say I was not a fan of the pick, however I am starting to become a believer in the kid and here is why.
While I think as of right now his deep ball is horrible, and he needs to improve on play action, he has something that I didn't know he had. It is something I don't believe you can teach a quarterback and he either has it or he doesn't. The really good news for Buffalo is that to me it is the difference between a good quarterback and a great quarterback. The ability to move on and forget the last play.
Yes he made some bad plays and 1, almost 2 bone headed interceptions. Guess what so does Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, etc, etc. What he did like them is put it behind him and go back and do his job when it is needed. That is where other high draft QB's have failed (think David Carr, Joey Harrington, Blaine Gabbert, etc.).
While he is not yet in at the same level as the first group, he has already shown that he won't be part of the 2nd group.
