Doesn't preclude it

Matt Moore, a player I’ve seen some fans discussing on Twitter a bit more these days due to his connection to Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll from their time in Miami together. Keep in mind that Moore also played with the Carolina Panthers while Beane was making his rise through the ranks. By signing Moore, they could get him for a low-cost deal, and likely wait until after the draft — which is right around the time where qualifying free agents for the compensatory formula is all finished up.

 

 

It may come down to a Matt Moore or Chad Hennessy, but I would be disheartened a tad if that's where the search started. These aren't guys that should be prioritized...they are way down the line fall back options.

Thank god.  Signing Moore is just as bad as signing Thigpen was.

 

This probably came from:

"The bills are going to bring in more QBs this week."

"Moore at QB?"

"Yes! More QBs!"

*rushes to twitter* "Bills bringing in QB Moore this week!"

you got this new world twitter news trajectory down. Any little post on social media in Buffalo area from Bills fans, Bills media, etc etc....... =

 

Soon after what you said then some bigger guys like Ian Rapoport or J LaConfora post "reports out of Buffalo say Bills may have interest in Matt Moore and may have him in for a visit soon" or "what I am hearing out of Buffalo is Matt Moore may be in". Then the ball just keeps rolling.

 

I guess for those not paying attention to local matters if is good to have this reported, but these guys should state it is just an internet rumor, and not lie to sound all connected.

He’s not that bad.  But with Moor as starter you can’t expect better than 8 wins.  Teddy Marchibroda once said this about backup QB’s:

 

”They’ll win you 3 games and then they’ll lose you 3 games.”  

 

That is Matt Moore in a nutshell.  Of course signing Moore 100% ensures the team is all in on a drafting a QB high.

 

He's more like a "Win you 1 game and then lose you 5 games" kind of QB.

It could also mean that McDermott prefers having a veteran QB as a backup. If they end up signing another FA QB and drafting a rookie could signal the end of Peterman on the active roster at least.

Moore played for Miami at 1.75 million per year.

We need 4 guys in camp and with Peterman and rookie with no experience, why not get a cheap old timer?

 

Peterman-Doesn't have a lot of experience

Rookie

A guy like Moore/Anderson/McCown (If he signs cheap enough)-Lot's of camp/backup experience

Another vet who can be the 2018 starter on a short length contract (Bridgewater)

Now that you put it that way. 2 mill or less 1 yr deal for experienced camp arm with no dead cap if he does not make the final 53 is not a terrible idea.

 

These NFL QB's on the edge of making a living in NFL must be drooling over the number of "bridge" QB deals opportunities to show what they have with a full training camp as starter like most never had before. Some could be Case Keenum 2.0

He and Beane have stated the importance of there being a veteran in the room. Moore might not be active on Sundays, but is really important when it comes to film study and things of that nature, especially if you are drafting a young guy. Having a guy like Moore gives you like an extra coach who can still play if needed.

Albright's profile pic makes me think he wears sunglasses inside a club or bar and listens to Nickelback.

That's a terrible thing to say about a person.

I actually like Matt Moore

You and his mom then.

 

He looked dead last year when he had to play. Big reason why the Fins are moving on and signed Cutler out of the retirement

We're all a little wound up with this legal tampering period.

Thanks for seeing my point.  I would rather have McCown in that role than Moore but you get my drift.

Lots of NFL HCs/OCs think McCown can be a great QB coach, we could use one of those.

I know, right?  Seems as though 20 teams in the NFL are looking for a "bridge QB" these days.

His ticket is still processing...

 

that little circle keeps spinning on the airline's website.

 

I'm told Bills brass DID hit "submit" though on the page. Stay tuned!

My question to the general audience is why we want any of these guys.  Matt Moore, Chad Henne, Drew Stanton, Derek Anderson, etc. are all retreads.  I would rather see Nate Peterman crash and burn for a year while they're getting a guy ready to be the starter.  Other than the "process", what is a rookie going to learn from a below average NFL quarterback?  I say that the answer to that question is nothing.  They're not going to learn anything more from a 35 year old journeyman than they will from Peterman, who at least has a year under his belt.  This is especially true if they trade up to get their guy, which seems pretty evident after moving on from Tyrod.  This team does not need an open QB competition to determine who the starter will be this year.  They need a definitive game plan.  I firmly believe that the draft has to happen FIRST, unless they decide that one of these guys out there that will be available is starter material.  In that case, a signing would certainly be showing their hand.

I see Moore as a potential backup at best. Not a very good one either. 

 

 

Back up yes ! Not very good ?? Fans perspective !!

Get a steady "career backup" type who understands his role and can provide mentoring while playing a bit at a reasonable level if needed while the rookie develops.

Replace bridge with journeyman and it's basically the same thing.
