Washington State coach Mike Leach on Jeff Tuel: "He's never really won any games"

As you’re probably aware by now, former Washington State quarterback Jeff Tuel, undrafted and unheralded, will be starting for the Buffalo Bills when the team takes on the New England Patriots to start the 2013 NFL season. Outside of people who follow Pac-12 football, most football fans don’t know a whole lot about Tuel (oh, except that his name is a homonymous with “tool.” I’m sure that joke won’t grow rusty this season). That’s okay, though, because Mike Leach, Tuel’s former coach, has this ringing endorsement:

He’s never really won any games. His entire college career and maybe his high school career as well, he’s never really gotten into a rhythm, between injuries and just being moved around a bit, with new coaches (Sirius XM NFL Radio, via ESPN).


Tuel was 4-22 while at Washington State, which is damn abysmal. However, Leach went on to say that Tuel is not necessarily a bad quarterback, but rather that he just needs to establish a rhythm.

Again, are you not excited, Buffalo fans?
