Buffalo Bills Need To Address Quarterback Position


I cannot believe I am going to say this, but here it goes: I agree with Ron Jaworski.  Whew! It feels good to get that monkey off my back.  Jaws recently came out with his quarterback ranking and has Blake Bortles as his top signal caller.  Although I agree with this assessment, it is his choice for the second spot that may have ruffled some feathers.  Zach Mettenberger fills his second spot and I could not agree more.

Mettenberger is coming off an ACL injury and could slide down draft boards, but do not count on it.  He is big and comparisons to Joe Flacco are not unfounded.  It will take one team to look past the injury to see how this guy can be a great quarterback in this league.

I have stated in the past how I would love to see the Bills grab this guy.  My hope was in the third round, but now I don’t think he will last that long.  I can see the Cleveland Browns grabbing him at #26 or even the Broncos at #31.

The Bills have stated that they are happy with EJ Manuel, Thad Lewis, Jeff Tuel and Dennis Dixon.  This could be grandstanding or it could be the truth.  It is pre-draft time and you really cannot believe too much coming out of the mouths of GMs and coaches.  Who would have thought the Bills had their eye on EJ Manuel last April?  These are deceptive times.

What say you Buffalo?  Are there too many other needs or is Mettenberger a good fit?  Jaws likes him and so do I, but how much is he worth?  Second round? Third round?

    Good upgrade at QB for the Bills.

  • Joe

    it’s been ONE YEAR. Can we at least give EJ another shot with a FULL SEASON before looking to upgrade our QB? Does anyone remember the Carolina game, or are our memories too short for that?

    I like it; I think he can be a top notch NFL QB; still like Johnny Football better but I’d take this guy.

    “It is pre-draft time and you really cannot believe too much coming out of the mouths of GMs and coaches.”

    funny ….I’ve always felt that way about Fansided writers….

    Listen to what Joe says below – and base your QB thoughts from that. Too many people have thrown EJ Manuel out with the Bills water; it’s unfair to him, to the team that’s invested in him, and to the fans – who haven’t seen him enough to make a call either way. Fansided: why don’t you talk more about other needs the team has, and let the QB story play out for another year?

    Or is your bin of story material that thin?

    Guess we need new running backs too because they really under achieved to, if you don’t have a good offensive line it doesn’t matter who’s back there …….. get a clue and while your at it a new job

  • Thomas Eric

    Aj McCaron will end up being the best quarterback to come outta this draft

  • Zachary Alexander

    The running backs the Bills have looked into have been “role” backs, they seem to be preparing for a future without Jackson. He is 33 and we would be smart to invest in our running game as we had issues with scoring in the redzone and converting on third down.
