Buffalo Bills QB EJ Manuel said it has been easy to pick up the team's offense, which he said is less complicated than the system he learned at Florida State. "The funny thing is it's easier to learn than the offense I had at Florida State," he said. "It's a true West Coast-type progression offense. That's really what I wanted when I was coming through the pre-draft process. I wanted something that I could just go in and say 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, check it down and run it. That's it, it's that simple. I love it." Manuel has spent extensive time working with offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett.
Fantasy Tip: Manuel will compete with Kevin Kolb and Tarvaris Jackson for the starting QB job this summer. If Manuel wins it, consider him a weak backup quarterback in just his rookie season. Manuel could be a decent signal caller in the long term, but Buffalo will need a proven receiver opposite Stevie Johnson in order to make a significant impact.

Sat, 20 Apr 2013 09:39:34 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb said the team's up-tempo offense will help the younger players because they will not have to think as much. "The best thing to me that tempo does," Kolb said, "is that it relaxes the mind of the players and they can just do what they've been doing their entire life. A big problem, especially for young players at this level, is they slow down because they're thinking too much. If you get them into a no-huddle, you get them into a quick style of offense, then they're just reading and reacting. When you're reading and reacting you're playing at your highest level and that's when you make a lot of great plays."
Wed, 10 Apr 2013 12:32:08 -0700
Buffalo Bills QB Kevin Kolb does not think he gets sacked too much, and talked about how he should not have that label placed on him. "No, because the label only came from really my stint in Arizona," Kolb said at Monday's introductory news conference at One Bills Drive. "When I was in Philly for however many games I started -- I don't even know -- I can remember going multiple games without maybe getting hit four or five times."
Tue, 09 Apr 2013 08:14:21 -0700
Buffalo Bills head coach Doug Marrone said the addition of QB Kevin Kolb does not mean the team will not look at quarterback prospects in the NFL Draft. "I do not think it really is going to change the philosophy on the draft," Marrone said. "I think that when the position comes whatever is best for our team to get better I think we will go ahead and choose that player whoever it may be. I think that rather than trying to, and I do not want to speak for Buddy (Nix) or anyone else in the organization, rather than trying to reach or go somewhere that you do not want to go you bring the best players you can bring in and you make those guys compete. You are a better football team."
Tue, 09 Apr 2013 07:31:07 -0700

Tue, 19 Mar 2013 07:47:35 -0700

Wed, 13 Mar 2013 17:33:22 -0700
The Arizona Cardinals signed QB Drew Stanton Wednesday, March 13, which casts even more doubt on the future of QB Kevin Kolb in Glendale. The team now has four quarterbacks under contract, and they owe Kolb a $2 million bonus if he is on the roster Saturday, March 16.
Fantasy Tip: It appears Kolb's days are numbers in Arizona. He'll likely latch on with another organization, but he will likely find himself as a backup somewhere else. Unless he unexpectedly lands a starting job for 2013, he can mostly be ignored for fantasy purposes.
Mon, 04 Mar 2013 16:20:13 -0800

Updating a previous report, the Arizona Cardinals could show interest in Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel if he is released but would also like to keep QB Kevin Kolb on the roster because head coach Bruce Arians likes him.

Arizona Cardinals team president Michael Bidwell said the team is probably going to need to address QB Kevin Kolb's contract in the offseason. Kolb is scheduled to make $11 million in 2013, a number that many feel is high considering Kolb has not outright won the starting job. "Kevin's contract is probably something we're going to need to address," Bidwell said. "It's a big number and given the productivity and the questions about durability and everything, that's something that I think the reality is we need to sit down and discuss."
Tue, 12 Feb 2013 10:57:22 -0800

Sat, 26 Jan 2013 06:57:12 -0800
Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians said he is keeping an open mind when it comes to the quarterbacks on the team's roster. Arians will give QBs Kevin Kolb, John Skelton and Ryan Lindley an opportunity to earn the starting job; however, he is not opposed to an outside candidate earning the nod as well. "I'm sure that (general manager) Steve (Keim) and (vice president of player personnel) Jason (Licht) are going to be looking behind door number two," Arians said. "If door number two is a better option, we'll go to door number two." Arians said he's looking forward to meeting with all three quarterbacks but isn't in a rush to evaluate their chances at this point.
Sat, 19 Jan 2013 04:23:28 -0800

The Arizona Cardinals may decide to release QB Kevin Kolb following the 2012 season. Kolb has played just 15 of a possible 32 games for the team in his two seasons in the desert. "Clearly Arizona has to do something at the quarterback position, and more than likely I think they'll wipe themselves out after two years of the Kevin Kolb experiment," ESPN NFL insider John Clayton said. "I don't know if they move on Alex Smith or draft a quarterback, but they've got to do something."
Thu, 13 Dec 2012 11:20:05 -0800

That's what extends the process." Kolb is optimistic that he will return this season, though.
