We’re talking about practice, man.

Not a game.

But in a young quarterback’s evolution, one great workout is more meaningful than Allen Iverson’s infamous anti-practice rant would suggest.

EJ Manuel drew praise from his coach and teammates this week in Latrobe, Pa., where the Bills joined the Pittsburgh Steelers for two training-camp sessions.

Bills coach Doug Marrone called Wednesday’s practice Manuel’s most accurate. Wide receiver Mike Williams said he told Manuel that Thursday night was “the best I’ve ever seen him.”

Manuel now must bring that into a game. Not a real game, mind you, but still an important exhibition against the Steelers tonight at Heinz Field.

Last year’s first-round draft choice is the Bills’ biggest question mark entering the 2014 season. Manuel has been inconsistent throughout training camp at St. John Fisher College and discouraged many fans with his performance in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game versus the New York Giants two weeks ago, completing two of his seven passes for 19 yards, more than half coming off a Williams screen.

Manuel has rebounded since. He completed 69 percent of his throws against the Carolina Panthers last week and remained on point in Latrobe.
