Running back is the position to watch at St. John Fisher

Paul KasprzakContributor IMay 24, 2010

According to Michael Silver of Yahoo Sports, via Pro Football Talk, Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch vows a return to “Beast Mode” in 2010.

That means the running back position is shaping up to be the position to watch at Bills training camp.

The Bills already have two capable starting running backs in Fred Jackson and Lynch.

However, the Bills drafting the running back CJ Spiller has setup a three way battle for the starting position.

Spiller is a long shot though being a rookie and was most likely selected for third down situations for now until Jackson’s contract is up.

That leaves Jackson and Lynch to battle it out and the pair admitted there is a friendly competition between the two.

So, how do the Bills satisfy all three? The answer is that the Bills will most likely be a predominant running team.

That means the Bills will run the football 40-45 times a game while attempting 20-25 passes.

That is not a knock on the quarterbacks it is what the Bills strength on offense is right now.

In the end, the offense will be much improved under Gailey.
