Niagara Gazette — Manuel looked leagues better than Smith on Sunday and — for the short term, at least — reminded fans why the Bills made him the first quarterback selected in the draft. Though he missed 5 1/2 games with a knee injury, he's thrown just two less touchdowns than Smith and nine fewer interceptions.
Whether Manuel or Smith end up being franchise QBs is still a ways away. After Sunday's win, though, it sure looks like Manuel is a lot closer.
