Bills RB C.J. Spiller will not be subbed out in certain situations
Bills head coach Doug Marrone is willing to use running back C.J. Spiller , no matter the down, distance or situation, as long as he is playing well. That's just his philosophy.
"My philosophy's always been if someone starts off and they're running well, keep feeding them the ball," Marrone told The Buffalo News."... I've really seen [Spiller] as well as Fred (Jackson) work on the things that make them both complete backs. Our goal, when we put a back back there, is to make sure they're complete backs."
Thank God that Chan Gailey is gone. He would have continued to keep Spiller off the field when the offense got close to the goal line; that's not how Marrone wants to operate. Jackson will still be around and get his work in, but Spiller is going to see more opportunities to score and get much more work overall. He's a locked-in RB1.
