I agree! I Also think his determination will get him to his goal!

Its odd how many people have written this kid off because of a weak preseason.

Incredibly odd. Of course, you also have all of the national draftniks just waiting to declare "BUST!" so they can say they were right a year ago.

Be confident and just let it all hang out. Do be afraid to make mistakes. if you make more big plays than poor ones people will remember the big plays.

Your use of initials is noted. As is your yearning for Manuel to suck.

Can't believe I'm responding to you, but compare the college resumes and achievements of JP, RJ, Trent, and Fitz to that of EJ. They're not in the same stratosphere -- only RJ even comes close.

With the OL settled down for now and 1st string WRs it should be a lot better here out. The good thing is no major injuries and a proven backup QB to give him advice.

Yolo, I agree. EJ is still going through growing pains this season. There's going to be some ugly moments, yes, but there's going to be some great play from him also. That's just a natural fact. For me, I gotta just keep this in mind as the season goes along. Go Bills.

I’d get excited if Mike Mayock wrote this. But a Chris Brown PR/puff-piece explaining all the ways EJ has gotten better? While the entire 2nd preseason body of work tells me differently?
I really don’t want EJ to fail. But I am in the camp of highly skeptical observers of EJ’s supposed “development” – he makes a lot of football 101 mistakes that should not be made. Like don't run out of bounds and etch an 8-yard loss in stone, especially near the red zone - chuck it at the feet of the nearest Bills receiver!!!
I know he played 10 NFL games, but he played plenty in a major college program and he still does not:
- do a good job of freezing safeties … he stares guys down & pulls the trigger as everyone breaks on his motion. Doesn’t often work in the big leagues.
- fire the ball in there. Too many timid floaters. No confidence.
- have a good pocket presence. Don’t abort the mission as soon as you feel someone’s paw grabbing at you. To sack a Roethlisberger, you’d better get ready to wrestle that bear down to the ground, and he still might fling it on the way to the ground. Big Ben is in a class by himself in this way, but EJ wilts.
- get rid of it quickly, and make the defense pay for the heat they bring. He’s still calculating, and there are two guys swallowing him up for an overload pressure sack.
It has been 14 years now. How about “win now” mode for a change.
