Bills QB E.J. Manuel obsessed with 'mastering' the quarterback position

Wednesday, May 13, 2015, 10:35am

Buffalo Bills - [Full Article]

In an interview on Bills flagship station WGR Sportsradio 550, Bills QB E.J. Manuel said his commitment to the quarterback position has reached a point of singular fixation, and attributes it to the adversity he faced last season when he was benched after just four starts.

“I think what I went through that’s just what made me grow up. That was true adversity in my playing career,” Manuel said. “As far as the competitive edge I have now, it’s crazy. It’s almost an obsession now as far as mastering this position and mastering this offense and mainly the fundamentals and mechanics of the game. Why not spend all my time doing that? There’s really nothing else to do right now. The main thing is just being all in and investing in yourself.”

Manuel insists his throwing accuracy is much improved after working for four months this offseason with former NFL QB Steve DeBerg. He credits DeBerg with eliminating the wind up in his throwing motion that compromised his accuracy. His throwing motion is much more compact now and he feels his accuracy is much improved.

Fantasy Impact:

The team acquired Matt Cassel in the offseason and he's likely to start unless Manuel is able to make big strides. There are a lot of weapons in Buffalo, but under new OC Greg Roman the team is likely to utilize a run-heavy approach (with LeSean McCoy and Fred Jackson) and rely on its defense to win games.

Scouting Report

Matt Cassel - Week 3 vs. New Orleans

Matt Cassel is coming off of a horrible performance against the New England Patriots. We knew the Patriots had a tough secondary and they showed why in Week 2. Cassel barely completed over half of his passes and ended up throwing four interceptions to just one touchdown. He finished with 202 passing yards.

The statistics say the Saints have allowed the most fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks this season, but that's because Matt Ryan tore them apart in Week 1. In Week 2 they allowed just 204 yards and one touchdown on 40 pass attempts to Brian Hoyer.

Cassel hasn't shown us anything promising this season and that's why he's a very poor option at QB this week. Look elsewhere for your quarterback.
