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).

ARE YOU NOT EXCITED, BUFFALO FANS?!

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?

    Around Buffalo many fans think his shit don’t stink, rallying around him thinking he is good or great! I do not! OTA’a, mini camp and training camp, yes, he looked like a world beater, but that was CAMPS! When Kolb got concussed he came in against the Redskins, did he play good? NO!! He looked worse than bad, confused and way, way over his head! Ringing endorsements of mediocrity!! Frankly, he reminded me of that over hyped QB’S in Jet land, geno Smith!! The same bad QB, most thought was better than, EJ MANUEL and how is that turning out? GO BILLS!!
