EJ Manuel The Best Rookie Marrone Has Ever Coached

EJ Manuel

To say that the comment is odd is obvious. The hope that it comes true is one that all Bills fans are hoping for.

The comment in question came from Bills coach Doug Marrone, who claimed that he couldn’t be happier with rookie quarterback EJ Manuel and says he is the best rookie he has ever coached.

“From my standpoint … EJ Manuel has done better [as a rookie] than any of the other organizations I’ve been a part of,” Marrone said after Friday’s practice, via the team’s official website.

He’s in his first season with the Bills, but Marrone spent seven seasons as an assistant with the New York Jets and New Orleans Saints before a stint at Syracuse.

Marrone’s latest comments are a contrast from earlier this month. At the Bills’ three-day rookie minicamp, Marrone said he was keeping his expectations in check when it came to assessing Manuel, who was the only quarterback taken in the first round of April’s draft when he was selected 16th overall.
