08:05 PM ET 09.01 | Buffalo Bills rookie quarterback E.J. Manuel believes that he will be the team's starting signal-caller for Week 1 of the regular season, but head coach Doug Marrone will still wait a few more days before making his decision. Marrone told reporters on Sunday that he will not be making his decision on the starting quarterback until Wednesday -- the day before the 2013-14 NFL season officially kicks off. The good news for the Bills and Manuel is that the rookie was able to return to practice this weekend and prepare for the upcoming game. He has been recovering from surgery to repair a meniscus issue and it appears to have been going well. If Manuel is unable to go in Week 1, the Bills will turn to undrafted free agent Jeff Tuel to get the start. It would be the first time in NFL history that an undrafted rookie got the start in his first regular season game.

I think they should name their starting quarterback "Rumplestiltskin."

Just for fun. And to tick off that poor little Italian lady who has to sew all those letter on the jersey.
