Buffalo News reports: '"One of the things when we drafted EJ, we were going to draft him and let him sit behind Fitz or a veteran for a couple of years and learn the NFL game and grow into it," Nix said.

He had some success and then he got hurt. There are just so many things that have to happen, have to fall right at that position. And they haven’t. They fell the other way for EJ.'

Buffalo News reports: '"I like Tyrod," Dilfer said. "I think there were probably too high expectations for him. He hasn’t played a lot of real football. I thought his flashes were really good. I liked that he played hurt. He’s a tough kid. We were there in New England when he got banged up. I think he’s got a chance to be a solid starter in this league. I really do. I think their passing game needs to grow. I’m not a fan of what they do schematically in their passing game. I think it needs to grow a little bit.
