    Tale Of The Tape: Buffalo Bills At Chicago Bears

    The Bills are hoping that second-year quarterback E.J. Manuel can stay healthy and make significant progress this season. He flashed his athletic ability and skills last year, but he had a hard time saying healthy. Manuel is a powerful man who can shake off the pass rush and throw the ball with power. If he can increase his consistency, the Bills could develop into a dangerous offensive team.

    Tale Of The Tape: Green Bay Packers At Seattle Seahawks

    The Packers figure to be one of the primary challengers to Seattle for the NFC dominance this season, and they should have an excellent chance if Aaron Rodgers can remain healthy.

By Comparison, backup outfielder Craig Gentry is being paid $1.15 million this year. So what kind of return on investment are the A’s getting? Let’s compare.
