and some fun jersey math at preseason opener
Neither Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor nor EJ Manuel has been able to establish himself as the Bills’ top passer thus far through the preseason, leaving fans with a wide array of opinions on who they’d like to win the starting job.
Justin Roberts of Bradford, Pa. had a message for coach Rex Ryan written on his shirt: “EJ for QB 2015. Do the right thing, Rex!”
“That’s my guy,” Roberts said when asked to explain why he supports Manuel. “First year, he looked great. Then they put the training wheels on with [coach Doug] Marrone. Cassel is [Kyle] Orton The Second, maybe worse.”
Here are the best quarterback opinions fans shared Friday:
On Matt Cassel: “In this race, he’ll get the nod.Cheap Jerseys china . We’ve seen some things from EJ and they weren’t that pleasing. Gavin Dia, Toronto
On EJ Manuel: “Total misuse by Marrone. He didn’t let him play. The last six games Orton shouldn’t have played. If Matt Cassel was the answer he would’ve been the answer somewhere else.” Joe Gemza, West Seneca
On Tyrod Taylor: “I think he’s got a big arm and he’s quick with his feet.
“I’m pumped because I hate the Jets,” Corey Konieczko of Lancaster said. “Anybody that could give us extra motivation is good.”
“It’s a jab to the Jets,” Dave Saskowski of Cheektowaga said. “[Rex Ryan] knows the guy. He knows the ‘D’ and player. He’s the best guy available.”
“We need some strength. “He made an honest mistake. Geno deserved it. Even his teammates said he deserved it. Geno was running his mouth.”
Jeff Montante of North Tonawanda didn’t see it that way.
“To me, it doesn’t make sense to bring in a marginal player,” he said.
Cameron Forrester made the best of his Kiko Alonso jersey.
After the Bills signed IK Enemkpali, the sports satire website Sports Pickle wrote a story saying that Rex Ryan offered a roster spot to any player who punched New England coach Bill Belichick in the nether regions.
Several fans were overheard talking about this offer before Friday’s game. PSA: That wasn’t a real story. Fans in Lot 7 were disappointed to learn Rex Ryan did not actually say such things.
