It is official: C.J. Spiller will be the starting running back against the Miami Dolphins. Spiller was the feature back for most of the 2010 preseason after Fred Jackson broke a bone in his hand and Marshawn Lynch suffered a severe ankle sprain. This announce from Buffalo Head Coach Chan Gailey comes just four days prior to the Bills’ season opener.
I believe that this decision will give Bills’ fans a spark of hope that they haven’t had in a few years. When a first round pick can come into an organization and contribute immediately, that proves to be good for the organization.
Dolphins’ Head Coach Tony Sparano believes that the Bills’ will run a wildcat offense, among other things on Sunday:
“First of all, I know that Chan’s history is one that he’s done whatever he has to do to move the football and he has utilized his personnel as best he can,” Sparano said. ”That’s really what we did when we started the Wildcat thing. As far as them running it, I’ve seen everybody else running it so it’s not something new anymore. And most defenses are now having to prepare for it every day against their own team. Do I expect to see it this weekend? I expect to see a little bit of everything this weekend.” (http://blogs.buffalobills.com/2010/09/09/sparano-expecting-bills-wildcat/)
