CJ Spiller has taken the Buffalo running game by storm over the last couple of seasons.

The ninth pick of the 2010 NFL draft was C.J. Spiller, running back chosen by the Buffalo Bills. He hasn’t been on a consistent offense yet, the Bills have always been trying to find their way, sort of like the Jets. Despite that, look at the numbers that Spiller has put up.


Season Team Rushing Receiving Fumbles
G GS Att Yds Avg Lng TD Rec Yds Avg Lng TD FUM Lost
2012 Buffalo Bills 16             9 207 1,244 6.0 62 6 43 459 10.7 66T 2 3 3
2011 Buffalo Bills 16             11 107 561 5.2 38 4 39 269 6.9 19 2 2 0
2010 Buffalo Bills 14             1 74 283 3.8 20 0 24 157 6.5 41 1 5 3
TOTAL 388 2,088 5.4 62 10 106 885 8.3 66 5 10 6

He’s not the first name you think of necessarily, but to average 5.4 yards per carry for bad teams like CJ Spiller has been on is nothing to be ashamed of.

    judging by comments made by rex regarding different draft picks, connor and hill in particular, i’m guessing mr. t sometimes allowed rex to make the call on draft day and sometimes made the call himself. i’ll extend that to where i’ll guess rex was behind the mo w. pick as well as coples. if i’m correct in these guesses that would indicate rex is pretty good at picking jewels in the first round (we’ll blame wilson on mr. t, even though i would guess rex was behind that one as well). i really hope they hit a home run with the first rounder. if they can grab mo with the thirtieth pick, i’m hoping we can get a future hof olb with the ninth pick. my optimism knows no bounds. :-) oh, yeah, that doesn’t mean mo won’t spend his entire career here and become a hofer….

      I would agree with that. I think Rex got some choices on his own, as did Mr. T. This ultimately would have led to his demise in my opinion. The GM has to be the face of those decisions. The coach can have a voice, but the GM has to be the ultimate voice.
