The Buffalo Bills released an unofficial depth chart which means some fans will overreact. That and more in today’s Morning Charge.

The Buffalo Bills open the preseason in two days and that means it is time for the first depth chart of the season, even if it is considered to be unofficial.

All the talk has been about the quarterbacks and it seems the competition is still too close to call. See for yourself:

AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman are both listed as the top quarterback in this depth chart. They shall duel!

These unofficial depth charts come out every year and honestly don’t mean much. It just gives fans, and the players, a general idea of where everyone stands before the preseason begins.

While the quarterback position is listed as a tie, the same goes for the center position. This is what the preseason is for. Players get to prove themselves and earn starting jobs. There is no need to know the entire starting lineup at the start of August.

New Bills receiver Corey Coleman is listed at the bottom of the depth chart because he just joined the team, but he is a player who will swiftly move up the ranks. Perhaps the same will be true for Josh Allen.

We look at this and more in today’s edition of The Morning Charge.
