Bills OC says E.J. Manuel needs to work on “everything”

According to, Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett was asked what they need to focus on with rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel to help him grow.

“Everything,” Hackett said. “He’s a young man that’s got to work on a lot of things from footwork to progressions to plays to formations, everything. Defenses in the NFL are obviously a little different. He’s got to work on that too. He’s got to work on everything.”

Manuel realizes he has a lot of work ahead of him.

“I still have a long way to go in this offense as far as picking things up, but I’m trying to learn it as fast as possible,” Manuel said.

I would certainly hope that Manuel would have something the work on and the truth of the matter is that every NFL player can improve in almost every area of their game.  I’m sure he will be fine as he continues to learn the Bills offense.
