The Buffalo Bills enter 2019 with a ton of experience in the quarterback room. That is a major upgrade from what we saw last year.

It is crazy to look back at how the Buffalo Bills assembled the current quarterback depth chart.

Josh Allen is at the top after months of speculation last year about who the team would select in the draft.

Matt Barkley is behind him after injuries and terrible play by Nathan Peterman opened up a spot on the roster.

Derek Anderson is next in line after coming to town as a mentor and then being an emergency starter, once again due to injuries and terrible play by Mr. Peterman.

I guess it doesn’t matter how it happens as long as it does.

The Bills now have two accomplished and intelligent veteran quarterbacks who can teach Allen all offseason. Barkley is also capable of stepping in and providing competent play if needed, as we saw in his lone start with the Bills.

Having all three guys in place this early in the year is a relief after last year when the only constant was Peterman. The team doesn’t have to worry about the position at all in 2019 and fans don’t have to spend the next three months screaming at each other about which quarterback the team should draft.

We look at the quarterback news and more in this Friday edition of The Morning Charge. Happy weekend! I know I need it.

Oh what could have been.

It appears some former Bills were pushing for Frank Reich to be the head coach when the job was open a few years ago. Instead, the front office went with Rex Ryan.
