Bills Running Back C.J. Spiller Is Going To Get The Ball Until He Throws Up

In this pass happy NFL that we all love, it’s got to be frustrating for running backs, who have seen their number of carries plummet in many offensive systems. However, for Buffalo Bills running back C.J. Spiller, the concern may not be a lack of carries. He may be worried about getting too many!

When asked on a radio show in Buffalo about Spiller’s role in the offense, Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said that Spiller’s role in the offense will be so vast, that Spiller may not be able to contain himself. Literally.

It’s real simple: we’re going to give him the ball until he throws up. So he’s either got to tap out or throw up on the field. Let’s just put it that way.

Now, while it seems a bit brutish to put a player such as Spiller through such a daunting ball carrying regimen, this may not be such a bad idea for the Bills.

Assuming he doesn’t actually start throwing up on the field, Spiller is a great back who hasn’t been allowed to reach his full potential due to a pass happy Bills offense in recent years. The result for the Bills was a lot of interceptions, and not a lot of wins.

With Spiller running the ball more, Buffalo should turn the ball over less, and avoid a number of wasted downs that would otherwise feature Kevin Kolb incomplete passes. In my opinion, this can only be a good thing.

Do you think the Bills should give C.J. Spiller the ball until he throws up? Let us know in the comments section below.
