View Full Profile - the first pick of the Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey chapter of the Buffalo Bills history book - had averaged 182 offensive touches, 1,242 total yards and 11 touchdowns per year in college. A player with unique speed and tremendous big-play ability, Spiller was the player the Bills chose to begin their re-build around. "There's only one Spiller," Nix quipped when he took the runner.
Spiller logged 98 touches as a rookie, producing 440 yards and one touchdown on those plays. His disappointing rookie campaign was compounded by a foot injury that caused him to miss two games. He logged 10 or more touches in a game just three times, failing to produce more than 45 yards in any of those contests.
Gailey insists that he's figured out how to integrate Spiller into the offense, and Nix is certain that Spiller will become the player the Bills drafted him to be - a dynamic, game-breaking force. Our question for y'all this afternoon, as a point of discussion, is this: what would you consider an "acceptable" step forward for Spiller in his second pro season?
