Buffalo Bills: Deciding how to find the next starting quarterback

The Buffalo Bills have several ways to go about finding the next franchise quarterback, and fans are vocal about one way in particular.

The Buffalo Bills are in the midst of one of the most important offseasons in recent history.

The Bills just returned to the postseason for the first time this millennium and the team wants January football to become a regular occurrence. For that to happen, the team needs to have a franchise quarterback.

Bills fans are looking for that next Jim Kelly, but such a figure isn’t easy to find. The safe option is to stick with Tyrod Taylor after he led the team to the postseason, but that brings up some fears after the offense was shut down by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Wild Card round.

I decided to post a Twitter poll to learn how Bills fans are feeling, and the results weren’t too surprising.

As you can see, a majority of fans in this poll are ready to move on from the two quarterbacks who started for the Bills in 2017.

The idea of drafting a rookie to start right away is always the exciting option. That idea of endless optimism and new hope that comes with a drafted quarterback never fails to get fans thinking of Super Bowl victories and a dynasty in Buffalo. If only it were that simple.

Thinking of Baker Mayfield or Josh Rosen in a Bills jersey is enough for some fans to move on from Tyrod Taylor, and that process can begin to gain traction if the Bills cut the man who took the team to the postseason.

The rookie hype will continue to build when the combine gets underway in a few weeks, which is also right around the time free agency begins and a decision must be made about Taylor.
