Tyrod Taylor: I still feel that I’d done more than enough to stay

I will say it again.   

 

Unless you have a franchise QB 99% of new coaches will want to bring in their own QB when that take over.  

 

Taylor got a free year because of the ??? of available QB’s on the market.   

 

Imagine if the Bills took the gamble back then and went after Foles !  

 

Or Keenum.  

Keemun here last season? 

 

He would've sucked and the Bills would've sucked.

Our coach does come from the Andy Reid coaching tree.

 

You are right though, I think the only situation he can possibly be successful in is where he is right now. That Eagles team is totally loaded, and coached up to the n'th degree so much so that even E.J Manuel would look like an All Pro running that offense.

 

I'm sorry, I should have said "an offensive coordinator from the Andy Reid coaching tree", which Dennison most assuredly was NOT

 

I think Foles would have done pretty well in KC or on the Vikes last year.  Maybe in Houston.  I agree on the right situation, but I think it's more common than n = 1

I'm really tired of this argument.  Per you, Drew Brees should have been thrown out of the league after 2003: 3 games under 100 passing yards and 4 more under 200 yds (an additional game that just squeaked over that benchmark 202), out of only 11 games started.  Average of only 191 yds passing.  Brees clearly wasn't doing enough to stay on an NFL team.  Ship the bum out of town.  Next year, pro bowl, "comeback player of the year".  Two years later, moves to N'Orleans and the rest is history.

 

I'm not arguing that the Bills should have kept Tyrod nor that he's Drew Brees, just that the criteria cited are (based on history) not good benchmarks for whether or not a guy is capable of quality QB play in the NFL.

Bress did lose his job in 2003 to the guy he beat out in Doug Flutie. To then regain the job by default when Flutie showed he was done as an NFL starter.

 

Bress did not continue to play like a QB that should be benched. Tyrod on the other hand was not terrible but also not good enough to generate a consistent passing offense.

Nothing to be sorry about. I think you are probably right, about KC or the Vikes. Houston only because of a weak division and solid D.

 

At the end of the day, this staff showed great discipline and forethought sticking with Tyrod for a year rather than stubbornly going out and getting "their guy" year one.I am still stunned at the genius of the trades to get all the picks, and the great coaching McDermott showed the talent depleted roster halfway through the season.

Brees 70,445 yards passing through 249 games or 282 ypg. 

 

Taylor 9,056 yards passing through 58 games or 158 ypg.     🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮🤮

Delusional 

 

Benched for poor play leaving us with Peterman 

 

130 yard easily winnable playoff game 

 

 

 

 

 

He really is delusional...and that’s the biggest reason the bills needed to move on...if he truly feels he had done enough and the team decided to keep him, the bills were doomed to fail.

And that's an entirely valid consideration. 

 

My point is just that I'm tired of hearing low-yardage passing games thrown out as though they're infallable metrics of a QB's NFL quality.

One can not look at a single-season performance of a QB with <100 yd and <200 yd passing games and say "this guy sucks, he doesn't belong on an NFL team".  Or at least, if one did, one would be kicking a number of very high quality NFL QB off the roster.

 

Now, if you look at film - as you say "what he did or didn't do when passing" and see Taylor missing open WR and struggling with reads and progressions after 3 years as a starter in a way that makes one question whether he's progressed, that would be a good reason to move on.

All metrics in regards to football are fallible.  But Tyrod's low yardage games are a simple way to exemplify how ineffective he was for large stretches.

Would be a top 5 backup Quarterback

 

Nah. He's a top 25 starter. Just not good enough to win consistently. He should start for bad teams, though.

Good luck in the factory of sadness. You let me down in the Panthers and Jaguars games. I would rather have the 3rd round pick then sit through another game the defense wins for you. 

 

I don't hold a grudge against you. Turn it up in Cleveland if your so good. Although I mean people should quit asking him about Buffalo. It's like asking a dude about his hot ex girlfriend when he's with the new ugly one.

Are you so sure of that? Keenum was the highest rated QB outside of the pocket last season. Sure, he wouldn’t have had Theilen and Diggs but he would have had a better running game. I’d take Keenum over Taylor 7 days a week, if your QB offers nothing presnap then you have the wrong guy.

I think the main reason Tyrod isnt here is how he leads, which comes across mostly by example.

 

With a rookie qb you plan to develop you would want a more hands on approach from the other qb's 

 

Josh Allen could have learned a lot from tyrod but it would have been up to himself to watch and learn, mostly training himself

 

With mccarron he comes across as another qb coach so to speak. In the few interviews I've heard it sounds like he is on board training Allen to be the guy

Two games with under 100 passing yards and 6 more with under 200 really isn't doing enough to stay on a NFL team.

You know we just spent a top 10 pick on a quarterback who averaged 161 yards/ game last year. In the Mountain West.  

 

I was was not a big Tyrod fan because I didn’t think he was a franchise qb.  But he was certainly solid and I totally get him thinking the way he does.  The Bills hired a WCO OC which was a terrrible fit for his style.  They trade away his best wr a month before the opener and tried to replace him with Jordan Matthews.  We had the least explosive wr core for a qb who’s best strength was throwing deep.  We benched him for a rookie in the middle of a playoff race which could have gotten a coach fired if we missed the playoffs. And after all that, he was the qb who ended the drought.

 

it was time to move on but the Bills did not put him in the best position to succeed. Odds are Tyrod is a better qb than AJ. Now, it’s on if Josh Allen will be the better qb (which isn’t the slam dunk most think it is).

Loved Tyrod when he was here, love him now.  Having said that, also could see his limitations.  But he gave our team his all, stabilized a horrific quarterback situation and was a great teammate.  Likely we needed to move on for Bills to take the next step.  But I hope he keeps Baker on the bench and takes the Brownies to the playoffs.  Baltimore and Cinci have windows that closed.  Pittsburgh can't win forever.  Browns with Tyrod vs. Bills with Allen in playoffs would be epic.  Browns. Bills is only game I want Tryod to lose - all class.

Tyrod Taylor has had one 300 yard passing game in his entire pro career and that was in a loss. I think that stat says it all. Ya sure Buffalo was a running offense but I am not buying that excuse. I wish him the best in Cleveland but I think we have seen his best and it's not good enough

Josh Allen had 2 in the Mountain West.  One against Garner Webb and one against UNLV.

I'm not arguing that the Bills should have kept Tyrod nor that he's Drew Brees, just that the criteria cited are (based on history) not good benchmarks for whether or not a guy is capable of quality QB play in the NFL.

Brees 3 under 100 yard games were his 22nd, 24th, 27th starts. 

 

Tyrods 22nd, 24th, 27th starts go as

 

22nd - 19/38 183 yards 0 TD 0 int

24th - 19/28 166 yards 0 TD 1 int

27th - 15/25 228 yards 2 TD 1 int

 

Clearly better than Brees 22, 24, 27 who was in his 3rd year compared to Tyrod 6th year and clearly 4 years of backup duties compared to 1 for Brees aided Tyrods numbers to be better at the early stages of both of their starting QB play.

 

Tyrod two under 100 yard games this past year were game starts 38 and 41

 

Brees games 38 and 41 starts go as

 

38th - 28/37 378 yards 2 TD 0 int

41st - 4/6 85 yards 1 TD 0 int, obviously Brees got hurt and couldn't finish the game.

 

on Brees way to 3100+ yards 27 TD 7 int as 3rd year starter, compared to 2800 yards 14 TD 4 int as 3rd year starter for Tyrod, progression (Brees) opposed to regression (Tyrod)

 

It's obvious there was steady progression to Brees game whereas Tyrods game showed plateau or regression. Guys with 40+ starts under their belt shouldn't be struggling to average 1 TD and 200 pass yards per game. That is more acceptable of a 3rd year guy 2nd year starter than a 7th year guy 3rd year starter. 

 

Brees passing talent was apparent early on whereas Tyrod  is now on his 3rd team.

I've said it before and I was a TT supporter. Three points on offense in three different games.:death: (That is also the reason Rico is gone)

 

Rico was super garbage tho. ALynn put up a lot better number with the same flawed QB and a defense that couldn't stop a nose bleed. How many 3 points games did we have with A Lynn at OC? None.

I mean Allen is bigger and has a stronger arm than Tyrod. So was Jamarcus Russell.

 

Tyrod was actually a pretty good deep passer, probably the best thing he did throwing.  Again, I was ready for a change at qb.  But I wanna honk they picked the wrong guy.  I pray they prove me wrong.

Yes, and Vince Young was way more mobile than Allen.

 

You can play that silly game all day long.

Moving on was the right decision for both sides. Tyrod handled himself with class as always. The Bills handled it the right way by keeping him in the loop. 

This. I am impressed with how well he has handled this situation. He is a true professional and I wish him well going forward.

I'd much rather have Tyrod than AJ, that's for sure. But without trading Tyrod, we wouldn't have Edmunds....so I think we made out well with that one.

Compared to McCarron Taylor is probably objectively correct, and IMO that belief is probably one of the main reasons he was shipped out.  If Taylor were benched for a rookie who then struggled, Taylor might have been outspoken about it and even brought up the race card as he did last fall, which would have been divisive to the team.  I think in the Bills opinion, McCarron is much more likely to be a "good soldier" about any coaching decisions the team makes.

 

Regarding that playoff game, one might wish to consider that Bortles was 34-155 with 75 yd net passing.  "But Bortles sucks too !" you might say, except that he sucked to the tune of hanging up 378 yds on the Steelers and 374 on the Pats in subsequent games.  My point is JUST MAYBE the weather conditions in Jax had something to do with the passing performance on both sides in that game.

As bad as bortles was that game he still managed to get 1 td drive. And that was the difference, tyrod couldnt
