Buffalo Bills Must Go With C.J. Spiller Full-Time

The Buffalo Bills have a major decision to make with their running back situation when the 2013 National Football League season arrives. Buffalo has two quality running backs in C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson and it is obvious to me which one needs to be the main attraction in the backfield. The Bills should hand the reins over to Spiller full-time and see what he can do.

Spiller is definitely the most talented running back and Jackson has been an injury risk the last couple of seasons. It has taken Spiller quite a bit of time to get his act together since coming into the NFL, but it appears that he has finally taken a step forward and should be the main running back in Buffalo next season. If the Bills want to finally get back to the playoffs, Spiller is the player that the team must run with. Spiller finished last season with 1,244 rushing yards and if he wasn’t injured and missed a game probably would have went over 1,300 yards.

The team has agreed to play in Toronto for the next five years and while the fans in Buffalo can’t be too pleased about that, they have a star in the making with Spiller. He has the potential to become a top 10 running back in 2013 and Buffalo needs all the help they can get after a 6-10 season in 2012. I wonder if the Bills will actually pull the trigger on this under new coach Doug Marrone or if Buffalo continues to sputter without Spiller in the starting lineup.
