Jeff Tuel, EJ Manuel looking good in Bills win



     The Buffalo Bills have options at quarterback. After their first preseason game (a 44-20 win over Indy), I can now safely say that EJ Manuel should be their starting quarterback come Week 1. Manuel went 16 for 21 with 107 yards and a touchdown. Jeff Tuel went 19 for 23 for 212 yards. Kevin Kolb did not play.

   From what I've seen of Kolb over the past few seasons, it is also a safe bet that if the Bills start him, they will lose. Not every single game, but they'll have a tough time winning. Kolb is an average QB at best with limited mobility and an arm that's nothing special.

    On the other hand, EJ Manuel is a young quarterback with all the physical tools he needs to be a solid above average passer. Sure, his first real game is yet to come, but I think it should come in Week 1.
