Bills OC: C.J. Spiller will get the ball 'until he throws up'
Bills offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett has an interesting plan for running back C.J. Spiller this year: he's going to give him the ball 'until he throws up.'
Buffalo offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said on Wednesday that Spiller will be getting the ball until he 'throws up.'
"It's real simple," Hackett told WGR-AM, via the Buffalo News. "We're going to give him the ball until he throws up. So he's either got to tap out or throw up on the field. Let's just put it that way."
Giving Spiller the ball often would seem like a good idea, the 25-year-old running back was second in the NFL last season in yards per carry (six ypc), a number that tied him with Adrian Peterson for first among running backs. Only Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had more (6.8 ypc).
Hackett doesn't sound too concerned that other teams might know the Bills 'give it to C.J.' offensive strategy.
"It doesn't matter," Hackett said. "You can say that because any team that has ever watched him should, I mean ... You've got to stop C.J."
In each of his three years with the team, Spiller's rushing numbers have gone up considerably. Spiller went from 283 rushing yards on 74 carries in 2010 to 561 yards on 107 carries in 2011 to 1,244 on 207 carries in 2012.
It's safe to say that if all goes according to Hackett's plan, Spiller's 2013 will top the 1,244 yards and 207 carries he had last season.
