in 2010.


"I don't think anybody foresaw how good Fred Jackson was going to be," said Gailey, reflecting on the 2010 draft. "When we drafted (Spiller), we thought there would eventually be a need there that has not shown itself to be. It's not his fault. Fred Jackson's playing extremely well right now. How do you take him out of the ball game? Receiver is not his natural position, so we'll just have to see how it works as time goes on. It may be one of those things where this year he doesn't get as involved as we all would maybe have thought he might. That's the way it is."


"I'm playing behind a great player in front of me, and I'm trying to soak up as much as I can from him," said Spiller, who is backing up Fred Jackson, the NFL's leading rusher with 917 yards. "Sooner or later my opportunity is going to come and I'll be ready. I'm not discouraged and I'm not going to stop working. I'm going to continue to be prepared and be ready to go."
