The Bills hope that running back C.J. Spiller will help pull the franchise out of a decade-long funk.
Before that can happen, he’ll need to quit impersonating Jim Marshall.
Spiller lost a total of 16 yards in his first three carries on Saturday night against the Bengals.
Of course, the quality of the line has something to do with it. Which of course makes more curious the failure to take meaningful steps to shore up the line in the offseason.
The good news is that, as I was writing this, Spiller got another carry, gaining four yards.
So he’s up to minus-12.
