When the Buffalo Bills drafted quarterback EJ Manuel, the expectation was that he would start in Week 1. Organized team activites and minicamp season slowly changed that perception. Now many believe that Kevin Kolb at least is on equal footing, even if Manuel clearly is the long-term answer.

"I don't buy what's being sold I guess," Kolb told the Bills' official website regarding his perceived spot as a placeholder. "I just listen to what (the coaches) tell me to do and roll on with it. I have a lot of confidence in my abilities and this offense and hopefully what I can do in it."
