So one would think that AJM will rotate into the starter role for Preseason Game #2.

McDermott will name the season starter after that game, right?

Quick Hits: Rotation at QB will continue

Coming out of Thursday night’s preseason game, head coach Sean McDermott was generally pleased with the performance. With the focus of the fans squarely on the quarterback competition, McDermott offered his position on where things stand coming out of the game.

 

“I think all three of those guys raised their game. That’s good to see. The competition tends to do that,” he said. “The good part is all three of them played well, so it makes my job tougher.

 

Battle at center a dead heat

Team must make jump going into Cleveland game

If Ray Ray Ray continues to play well he helps the team in a lot of ways. They may be able to keep one less RB. They may not need to keep a guy just for KR or PR (or keep a guy like Taiwan Jones as the KR who is a RB but not a very good one. He can also be used effectively on offense as a gadget back for reverses (they did one last night), jet sweeps, etc. Line him up as the RB and then put him in motion to get a LB trying to cover him out of the backfield. He could be a nice little jack of all trades player and allow us to keep an extra WR or S or QB.

..not a fan at all with the new cutdown parameters......acceleration makes things happen too fast IMO.....trying to evaluate talent in a shorter order doesn't make much sense....too bad the NFL doesn't have a minor league system ala MLB or NHL where some of these kids could be assigned to hone their skills...similar callups/promotions or sent downs/demotions for slackers......a quick "off the top of my pointed head" observation without thinking the whole thing thoroughly through......

Im guessing AJ gets the start next game followed by Peterman. 

 

I want to see Allen with the first or at least 2nd team

No...that's a reasonable idea to at least explore. I've heard it mentioned once or twice in various outlets, but no one ever pursues the notion.

 

Seems like college ball IS the minors for the NFL. Maybe most players are too physically used up by their mid twenties to make substantial leaps in production? Of course a few guys here and there just haven't had a real opportunity where health and playing time have coincided often enough for them to show their abilities...I mean Freddie Jackson needed NFL Europe to really get noticed. But staying healthy and continuing to fight for a chance is just such a crapshoot with the brutality of the game (even in its kindler, gentler current incantation).

 

In short, I like the thought.

I'm kinda hoping that's what the AAF becomes. First season starts the week after the Super Bowl, so make sure you tune in.

...agree and thanks for info bud...:thumbsup:........plenty of career minor leaguers in MLB and NHL.....at least they're employed in the sport of their dreams.....collegiate football is waning IMO as the NFL's minor league....too many kid chasing their dream either go undrafted or are cuts because they're marginal......and I'd bet many do not end up well.....they may be good enough for careers in an NFL minor league system which provides them with a livelihood.....then again, I doubt the NFL could afford such a venture, right (COUGH)??...

Agreed on the first.  

 

Allen will finish the 2nd half as he did Thursday.

Joe B: 7 observations from 2018 Buffalo Bills training camp - Day 12

(WKBW) - Less than 24 hours after the first preseason game of 2018, the Buffalo Bills returned to the practice field in Orchard Park for Day 12 of training camp. Although they had to practice without some players that had been injured against the Carolina Panthers, we saw the return of some others to practice and even team drills.
 
On Friday, we also learned how the Bills are approaching the quarterback position following the first preseason game.
 
What stood out? Seven observations from a relatively light day of practice:
1) The QB rotation rages on
2) Zay Jones works in with the first-team on first team drills
3) Corey Coleman gets a bump up in team drills
4) Shaq Lawson flaunts his newfound skill yet again
5) Jerry Hughes took over team drills
6) Nick O'Leary's interesting placement
7) Trent Murphy gets back on the field
