The Bills from this report have determined who their top two quarterbacks now are. Just coming down from the Buffalo Bills App/Twitter has them releasing Jackson. Now this will let the other two know they will be a part of this team going into the season(basically Kolb) barring any injuries. I’m sure we’ll hear what went into this decision later tonight or more likely tomorrow.

What’s your thought on the move? Check back as more on this becomes available.

    Don’t forget Jeff Tuel; it’s interesting that they kept him, but sent a veteran – and one that has won NFL games in the past – packing. My read on this is that they didn’t see Jackson fitting into the new offense as well as the other QBs … and means that Kolb must have the inside track on being the starter for Game 1. It also must mean that Manuel was at least at the same level on the chart as Jackson; if not higher, in the view of the coaches. That’s a good sign for us Manuel fans – it means that he’s right where he needs to be at this stage. Whether that now stays the same depends on Manuel; but personally, I’m in no rush to throw him in against NFL defenses until he’s had more time to prepare. Manuel’s time WILL come; there’s no need to force things into coverage.
    I wonder if New England now wishes they’d waited another day or so before signing Tim Tebow?

    That’s the first thing I thought of as well in regards to the Patriots. Not sure if he’ll sign somewhere right away but can see him going to the Packers.

    Tavares seems to be generating a rep as a “system” QB; a player who does well in certain systems, but not others. Tebow is the same way; although, if anybody can find the diamond in the rough, it’s the Pats and the Hooded One. Of the two, I’d rather have Tavares; I just think that he has more arm strength than Tebow has displayed to this point. Definitely won more games, too. At the end of the day, I wasn’t all that surprised that Buffalo cut him; I think he’s a little too set in his ways to be flexible enough to teach new offenses to. If you can’t picture him running the Saints offense of the Gary Payton/Doug Marrone days (and I can’t), then his days in Buffalo were basically numbered as soon as Marrone walked in through the door.
