RB C.J. Spiller was brought into Buffalo for some excitement on the Bills offense. He provides playmaker ability for an offense with few playmakers.
His 10 carries for 54 yards looks good in the box score but, once you take out his breathtaking 31-yard touchdown run, you're left with less than three yards per carry.
Brian Galliford of Buffalo Rumblings says, with Spiller, you must take the good with the bad.
It was very easy to see what sets Spiller apart last night. He gets to the edge of the defense with astonishing ease. His cutting ability makes Roscoe Parrish look rather pedestrian. His acceleration is top-notch, his vision is excellent, and he's got great instincts and a nose for the end zone. You have every reason to be excited about Spiller's pro prospects; he does things that very few human beings are capable of doing. But for now, the simple fact of the matter is what we'll have to take some bad with the breathtaking.
That's the way it is with a lot of young running backs and the Bills will learn how to handle Spiller.
