Spiller's priceless wisdom

I am all aboard the Spiller train. A couple of my favorite quotes from an ESPN profile last week: "When the Tigers struggled midway through the 2008 season, Spiller watched how Florida's All-America quarterback Tim Tebow rallied his own teammates to the national championship with a rousing postgame speech after a loss to Mississippi. Spiller wondered why he wasn't providing the same kind of inspiration to his own squad. A few weeks later, he was organizing the other leaders on the team to hold a players-only meeting and regain their focus." "My thing is that if you're a ballplayer, then you'll always be a ballplayer," said Spiller, who became the first member of his family to graduate from a four-year college. "But once this is done, I wanted something I could fall back on. And I didn't want to be some 30-year-old guy coming back here to finish up my classes." "I think I really grew in my pass protection. I wasn't responsible for a lot of that [earlier in college] because I had to get on the edge and catch passes. But I wanted to show people I could block. I didn't want anybody to have any questions about my game." So he is an elite talent and someone with a good head on his shoulders who wants to be a complete player. Yeah, I am allllllllllllll aboard the Spiller train.

"Need is important, but it had to be a guy that we thought was the player that could come in here and start immediately," said Nix. "Not to say that some of those guys couldn’t, maybe they could, but we also think we have a chance to get that position filled later on in the draft. There’s only one Spiller."

Marshawn Lynch has to be a goner w/ Bills. That's obvious. Couldn't give him away is what I've been told. Not confirmed by Bills. If true, that stinks. I find it hard to believe there would be no interest in him.... Yikes!

With Tim Tebow to Denver, Buffalo has to be heartbroken. It was going after Tim Tebow hard and he was square on their radar. #nfldraft
