Draft Scout EJ Manuel News
12/11/13 - -- QB EJ Manuel is 16 completions shy of setting a new team record for a rookie passer. The mark is 178 set by Dennis Shaw in 1970.
12/09/13 - Coach Doug Marrone said the coaching staff may have to dial back the game plans for QB EJ Manuel because he may be suffering from a bit of information overload. This is certainly a disappointment because by now, Manuel should be processing information quicker and be able to handle more of the playbook.
"We've been giving him more and more, and now it's a point where you have to re-evaluate that," Marrone said. "We've been going fast with his progression, and now we just have to look at it and get him started again. It's not starting over. Don't get me wrong. We've got to look to see what we can do and probably cut down on what we're doing."
Manuel had his worst game of the year with a passer rating of 31.2. He was sacked seven times and half of them were a result of indecision and holding the ball too long. He also threw four interceptions.
"A disappointing day in my performance," Manuel said. "It starts with me, especially on offense. I'm the quarterback. I'm the leader. These guys feed off of me, and I was supposed to be facilitating the ball to these guys. I didn't do a good job (against the Bucs), plain and simple. Got to get better, plain and simple."
12/04/13 - QB EJ Manuel has yet to win an NFL game away from Ralph Wilson Stadium. He is now 0-3 on the road, and 0-1 in Toronto.
12/02/13 - QB EJ Manuel took a big shot to the ribs in the first quarter, but missed only one play. Manuel played another turnover-free game and threw for 210 yards and one TD on 18 of 32 accuracy.
11/25/13 - QB EJ Manuel is two touchdown passes shy of tying the team rookie record of 10 held by Dennis Shaw in 1970.
