Even though he didn't get a single snap in the last pre-season game,Matt Cassel took the majority of first team reps in every training camp practice,including the four sessions immediately following the game he was held out of.That being said,Fat Rex has just announced that Ebony Jenkum Manuel will be starting Saturday's game against Pittsburgh.I don't see any possible legitimate explanation for this other than Fat Rex trying to kiss up to Doug "AA" Whaley.Hopefully,I'm wrong. During the Bills coaching search something very telling was revealed by Hue Jackson,of all people.In addition to proclaiming that he and his agent both thought that he was the leading candidate and a virtual lock to become the next Bills coach(due to inflated self image/delusions of grandeur) he was the only interviewee to give some first hand insight into the "process".Jackson said that Whaley took the lead and one of his main concerns was how much he knew about Manuel and did he think he could make the offense work with him at the helm.When Jackson assured him that he long admired Manuel and was sure he could make it work,Whaley was visibly glad to hear it and opined to Jackson that the majority of Manuel's shortcomings were due to the ineptitude of the previous coaching staff.While chagrined at learning this,I was hardly surprised.Whaley has had an agenda from Day One which I will expound on in a seperate thread specifically about it. P.S.> Even though Caste Clown/former DWF Fat Rex isn't much better,if they would've hired Hue Jackson,I would already be a former Bills fan !!!!
