The new Buffalo Bills quarterback thinks the new offense is easy to learn. If that's the case, he had better be the starter on opening day, right?

Manuel says Buffalo’s offense is easier than Florida State’s | ProFootballTalk

"The funny thing is it’s easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State," the 16th overall pick in the draft said, via "It’s a true West Coast-type progression offense. That’s really what I wanted when I was coming through the pre-draft process. I wanted something that I could just go in and say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, check it down and run it. That’s it, it’s that simple. I love it. . . ."

Manuel needs to be careful with talk like this. If he loses out on the job or looks bad in the opening few games, this will be brought to his attention. "I thought it was easy to learn, bud." It also must be noted that while the offense might be easier to learn, reading defenses in real-time will be more difficult.
