Buffalo Bills: A category for the 2019 quarterback situation
A recent NFL.com article went about placing each NFL team’s quarterback situation in one of five categories. The Buffalo Bills appear to be in good shape.
It is natural for individuals to place things in nice, tidy categories.
That is what NFL.com’s Marc Sessler did recently when he broke down each NFL team’s quarterback situation into five categories.
Those categories are: In desperate need of help, Set for years to come, Love the one you’re with, Staring down father time, and The wild cards.
The Buffalo Bills showed up in “Love the one you’re with” in regard to Josh Allen. This is much better than ending up in the first category.
This is a fair spot considering the Bills aren’t entirely sure that Allen is the savior of the franchise just yet. But he did show enough last year to enter 2019 as the starter. The fact he was taken so high in the draft helps make him the obvious starter as well.
The entire AFC East is an interesting case study within these rankings. All four teams are in different categories, with the Miami Dolphins currently owning the worst situation. That team may go into full tank mode in 2019 if they decide to move on from Ryan Tannehill.
The New England Patriots have to see how much longer Tom Brady can hold up, while the New York Jets are like the Bills in that both teams took the future of the franchise in 2018. I’d still give the Bills a leg up on the Jets because there isn’t a new coaching staff in Buffalo like there is with the Jets and Adam Gase.
This is a great position to be in and a great year from Allen will eliminate any talk of having to even consider quarterback prospects for years to come.
