With utmost respect to the USMC and Maj. Gen.William H. Rupetus
EJ Manuel Fans’ Pledge
This is my quarterback. There are many like him, but this one is mine. My quarterback is my best friend. He is my life. I must master my life as he masters his game. My quarterback, without me, is useless. Without my quarterback, I am useless. My quarterback must throw the ball true. He must pass further than any defender trying to intercept him. He must run faster than any defender trying to tackle him. He will!
My quarterback and myself know that what counts in our battles are not how many yards that he throws for, how many times he must scramble and run for a first down, nor the interceptions or sacks he may take. We know that it is touchdowns that count. He will score!
My quarterback is human, even as I am human, because the Bills are our life. Thus, we will learn the team as brothers. We will learn our weaknesses, our strengths, our linemen, our receivers, our tight ends, and our running backs. They will keep my quarterback clean and healthy, even as I am clean and healthy. We will become part of each other. We will win! Before our Creator we swear this creed, my quarterback and myself are the defenders of the Bills’ honor. We are the masters of the AFC. We are the saviors of Buffalo. So be it, until victory is Buffalo’s and there is the one ultimate win, the Super Bowl!
