The Buffalo Bills are holding a quarterback competition between NFL veteran Kevin Kolb and first round draft pick E.J. Manuel out of Florida State. Bills head coach Doug Marrone has said that he isn’t rushing to make a decision however.

“You like to sit there as a coach and say you’d like that decision to just come up in front of you,” Marrone said, via the team’s website. “Really if you can get 10, 12 days prior to that first game, that’s when you’re going to get pressed for time and have to make a decision on a quarterback. That’s when you’re probably going to start preparing, 10 days out of the first game.”

Marrone tried to offer a little insight as to what he is seeing from the quarterbacks.

“The quarterbacks, we’re working EJ (Manuel) in, get the reps to 50-50. I think it’s the same as everything else, I don’t mean to be cliché about it, but there was some good things in it. Again, this is the first time throwing to receivers in a period of time. We have to work on our timing. We had a lot of work pre-practice before we got in to the teamwork. Again, we’re going to have to do a better job, both in our receiving, throwing, protecting. Just work to get better.”
