Over/Under on when EJ Manuel will be released from the Buffalo Bills: Week 6


maneul preseason over story Over/Under on when EJ Manuel will be released from the Buffalo Bills: Week 6

Add former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly to the list of people who are starting to worry about the Buffalo Bills’ quarterback situation.

What are the Buffalo Bills chances of making a splash this season? Highly unlikely, but that doesn’t mean you can’t place a wager on literally anyone else to finish better than them. You can even go so far to make some super bowl betting. My money would be on the Broncos, Seahawks, 49ers, or Patriots.

Kelly joined Sirius XM NFL Radio and was asked what he thought of EJ Manuel and the Bills’ quarterbacks. The Hall of Famer didn’t hold anything back, either.

Adding to the quarterback issue is that neither Jeff Tuel or Thad Lewis has played well enough to win the backup quarterback job at this point.

“I think it’s what you see,” Marrone said. “They either have to play better or we have to look to see if there’s someone that can better that position, like we would any other position. If we feel at the end of the day that it’s not good enough to win with, which we haven’t seen that yet, there’s only two ways to go. Either you put a lot of work into those guys and getting them better until you get to that position where you feel comfortable with it, or you have to upgrade that position some other way.”

Lewis hasn’t been particularly happy about his play, either.

“I think it’s been alright,” Lewis said. “Not like I would have liked it to have gone.”

Being worried about his job security isn’t exactly new to Lewis. He was in the same position a year ago with the Bills, so he’s used to the uneasy feeling heading into the final preseason game before roster cuts.

“It’s been like that ever since I’ve been in the NFL,” Lewis said. “It’s nothing new, but at the same time, it’s football. There’s always going to be competition. If you’re scared of competition, you shouldn’t play the spot.”

Ultimately, Lewis or Tuel won’t determine the Bills’ success, though. Buffalo’s playoff hopes are riding on Manuel. Kelly acknowledged that in the interview with Sirius XM.

Bills coach Doug Marrone said Monday he’s behind Manuel 110 percent and is focused on his development. He thinks it’s important to surround the second-year quarterback with enough talent so that he can have a fair chance to succeed.

“We have to have people around him playing well, there’s no doubt about that,” Marrone said.

“The quarterback, when you’re winning gets too much of the credit and when you’re losing he gets too much of the blame. We’re going to progress with him. He’s not going to turn around and be a franchise guy overnight. That doesn’t happen often.”

Are the Saints going to cut Champ Bailey?!?!


 

Champ Bailey 2 Are the Saints going to cut Champ Bailey?!?!

Champ Bailey was talked up as a big free agent acquisition in New Orleans out of respect for his 12 Pro Bowl appearances. There hasn’t been much talk about whether this version of Bailey can truly be an asset on the field.

Place a wager on the Saints or any of the other 31 NFL teams with sports betting at CarbonSports.ag. The Saints are already a huge favorite to potentially make it to the Super Bowl!

Greg Bedard of TheMMQB.com writes that Bailey won’t help the Saints as much as the team hopes. Bailey has “lost a step” and is much “stiffer in the hips” at age 36. That’s not a surprise. This is:

“It’s early, but it would not be a shock if Bailey, who has just $500,000 guaranteed on his contract, doesn’t make the team,” Bedard writes. “The Saints have some promising young defensive backs who might have to be kept. Undrafted free agent Pierre Warren, for instance, was making plays all over the field.”

It’s worth noting that this passage is below a section of the article that entitled “STRONG OPINION THAT I MAY REGRET BY NOVEMBER.” So it’s hardly a guarantee that Bailey is not going to make the roster.

Still, this is how it ends for a lot of Hall of Fame players. The next generation arrives, and guys like Jerry Rice and Terrell Owens wind up losing camp battles to young players that you’ve never heard of. (Darius Watts made the 2005 Denver Broncos over Rice.)

Bailey might still have something to offer as a leader and a player that provides depth for the Saints secondary. But counting on him as a starter was probably always asking too much.

 


Johnny Manziel’s jersey is already the top selling jersey in the league!



manziel 4 Johnny Manziels jersey is already the top selling jersey in the league!
NFL:

He’s No. 2 on the depth chart, but No. 1 at the cash register.

Rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel has yet to take a snap for the Cleveland Browns, but the former Texas A&M star alreadyleads the league in jersey sales, per NFLShop.com. The passer’s No. 2 garb outsold all others during the first quarter of the league’s fiscal year.

Manziel mowed down quarterbacks Russell Wilson of theSeahawks (No. 2), Colin Kaepernick of the 49ers (No. 3) andPeyton Manning of the Broncos (No. 4). Seattle cornerbackRichard Sherman and Rams rookie pass rusher Michael Samfilled out the top six slots.

JFF wasn’t the only rookie signal-caller making waves: Minnesota’s Teddy Bridgewater (No. 13) outsold Vikings All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson (No. 14), while Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles finished No. 18 between Robert Griffin III and Ryan Tannehill. Seattle’s “12th Fan” jerseys, admirably, ranked 10th.

Darren Rovell of ESPN.com points out that Manziel’s ranking is the highest a Browns player has finished since the NFL began tracking individual player sales in 2001. Brady Quinn opened the 2007 campaign with the No. 2 top-selling jersey, only to plummet to No. 17 by season’s end.

If Manziel emerges as more than just another Browns passer destined for the scrap heap, he’ll move units deep into the future.


Johnny Manziel reportedly asked to leave Nike Footbal lCamp


d88963a954fc8e3ef88f3fe82cded704 crop north 2 Johnny Manziel reportedly asked to leave Nike Footbal lCamp

Bleacher Report:

Johnny Manziel is pretty easy to spot anywhere he goes…except at Nike’s The Opening football camp, apparently.

High school recruits are at Nike’s elite, invite-only camp this week, and the company has Manziel there to serve as a camp counselor. Unfortunately, it’s tough to help out if you’re not actually with the players.

Kipp Adams of 247Sports reported that the camp’s security staff asked the Cleveland Browns quarterback to leave the area:

Per Wahoos247 Insider Jamie Oakes, Manziel was asked by security at The Opening to leave the area. While this might raise some eyebrows based on recent events, it turns out the staff security simply did not know who ‘Johnny Football’ was. …

Oakes reports: ‘To Manziel’s credit, he didn’t bat an eye and walked off as requested.’

It’s tough to imagine someone not knowing who Manziel is, but it does happen occasionally. This time, it just led to a mistake. (Coincidentally, the Browns QB signed with Nike earlier this year.)

Manziel was, however, able to take part in the camp earlier this week.


My Review of ScoreBig.com!


Screen Shot 2014 05 01 at 10.14.20 PM My Review of ScoreBig.com!

Ok football fans. I was approached by a very friendly employee over at ScoreBig.com to review their website. She sent me a promo code for some free tickets!

1. Browse their site

2. Select an event I would like to attend.

3. Purchase tickets

4. Have a kick ass time!

Here is a quick rundown of my experience with ScoreBig.com:

1. Arrived at their website. Very impressed that it recognized right away I lived in Denver, CO. I know this is all website cookies, cache or whatever technological magic kids play with these days but I was impressed I did not have to enter my info manually for these events to populate.

Screen Shot 2014 05 07 at 8.15.44 PM My Review of ScoreBig.com!

2. I only had $100 to spend and I know there is no chance at Denver Broncos tickets that cheap so I went looking for Colorado Rockies tickets instead. There was no game coming up that I was dying to go to, so I went looking for the July 4th game because the fireworks in Denver are insane!

Screen Shot 2014 05 07 at 8.18.03 PM My Review of ScoreBig.com!

3. They have a 5 star tier system that ranks tickets on quality. The money seats behind homeplate are worth much more than nosebleeds in the upper level. I took a shot and bid on some 5 star tickets with my $100. $50 each for a pair of tickets….

 Screen Shot 2014 05 07 at 8.21.22 PM My Review of ScoreBig.com!

4. I knew it would be a long shot to get tickets that cheap in those sections and I was right. Declined! So I decided to go for a more reasonable set of seats. I put in the same offer on the 4-Star Seating Area.

Screen Shot 2014 05 07 at 8.24.28 PM My Review of ScoreBig.com!

5. Winner! $50 each for some nice tickets down the 1st base line! Money seats for the fireworks too which is a nice bonus! Also $2 bucks off because I’m awesome apparently!

6. I received a confirmation email saying my tickets would be emailed to me! I was relieved that I would receive etickets and not have to deal with stupid will call or hard physical tickets shipped.

Summary:

- Very impressed that their website was intelligent enough to know where I lived.

- I love their bidding system where I can try to get amazing tickets for a cheaper price.

- NO Fees! I did not mention that above, but I said I wanted to pay $50 each and that is exactly what I paid. I expected them to add some annoying “convenience” BS fee on top of it, but they didn’t!

Overall I really enjoyed the entire experience of ScoreBig.com. I highly recommend giving them a try. My purchase was simple and I ended up with amazing seats. I was price shopping on that other ticket website at the same exact time and seats in the same row I got from ScoreBig would have been twice the price over there. I will definitely be buying my tickets here again!
