It was reported that Anderson will be the backup and play in case of injury 

I just listened to McDermotts Wednesday PC and he said that Peterman would be the number 2. Has something happened since then?

Derek has already learned their 4 passing plays in the playbook.

Maybe, but that’s not what he said at the PC. He said that Peterman status with the team, as the number 2 QB, hasn’t changed. I’m just trying to figure out if Anderson becoming the prime backup is just a guess or if anyone associated with the team actually said it.

For this week. Anderson just practiced for the first time yesterday. He can’t be the backup qb in 4 days.

If Allen gets hurt, and DA plays, DA is the primary backup. 

 

Matches up with the original report:

If Josh leaves the game for any reason, Anderson will be out there in no more than 3 series. 

 

I wouldn’t expect Anderson to even be active for the game.

Just an FYI but Anderson is making a shade under $716,500 with the Bills this season.  That's a steal for a backup QB with his experience.

How Derek Anderson Could Become Bills' Starting QB

Mike Rodak ESPN Staff Writer

 

r445736_1296x729_16-9.jpg&w=570

 

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- As Buffalo Bills players walked off the field Thursday, defensive tackle Kyle Williams teased quarterback Derek Anderson that the gray T-shirt he wore under his No. 3 jersey hardly showed any signs of sweat after a 90-minute practice.
 
"I’ve seen a lot of football -- I’ve been through a lot of ups and downs in my career and just be a guy that he can lean on," Anderson said Wednesday, one day after the veteran signal-caller signed a contract with the Bills. "[He can] ask me any question."
 
Beyond serving as the sage of the quarterback room, what would it take for Anderson to be pressed into duty as the starter? Other than an injury to Allen, it is hard to say at this point.
 
For now, the bigger question is whether Anderson is capable of being Allen's backup. Bills coach Sean McDermott said Wednesday that Nathan Peterman will continue as the team's No. 2 quarterback, meaning Anderson likely will be inactive when the Bills travel Sunday to play the Houston Texans. However, McDermott considered the topic a "crystal ball question" in which he could not predict the future.

.....maybe I missed the memo, but aren't we back at Square 1 with an OLDER "Vet presence"?......Anderson is an older version of McCarron with no ambition to start unless called upon versus AJ who was looking to start until Josh was ready IMO............sure AJ exhibited expected ring rust in the last pre-season game post injury, but rebounded nicely in the 4th...would have kept him versus McBeane pulling the trigger for a coveted, envious 5th.......I'm sure the 2019 "blue chipper list" for the 5th round is glowing.......big gaffe IMO expecting PeteredOut to be "live ammo ready"....and while we're at it, was dumping Glenn the right move with our OL apparently being all set (COUGH)?.......started all 4 Bengals' games at LT, is still healthy and Andy has only been sacked 7 times.......certainly are some head scratching moves.........

I don’t care if Anderson knows 5 plays. He needs to be active Sunday. That defense can hurt Allen. If Allen goes down, Peterman can’t play. I’d rather see Anderson with a limited playbook then anything with Peterman. I don’t care if Peterman knows all of our plays and all of Houston’s plays...he can’t see the field.

I don't think the Bills could have botched the QB position more than they did this year. 

Sure they could have

They could have kept TT and not drafted a QB

 

Were ppl not expecting growing pains?

 

Now we are 2-3....our rook is gaining valuable experience....and a veteran qb mentor i on board

Right but what was Anderson doing the previous 3 months?  Why wait.  After Cleveland it look obvious that Allen would give Buffalo the best chance to win.  Double down on Allen then.  Bring in Anderson give Allen the reps and precious time with the first team.

Nobody knows.....there was a rumor that Anderson was waiting for a opportunity with another team.....

 

Or maybe the bills thought they at least had a place holder with AJM

 

Then there is the worst scenario....that they still liked Peterman

Matches up with the original report:

 

I understood McDermott was referring to the way Anderson would be used throughout the season.   It seems that he wants to forestall any quarterback controversy by stating the only way Anderson plays is if Allen gets injured.  I don't believe McDermott was suggesting Anderson would be #2 on the depth chart this week vs the Texans.

Right, he directly said Peterman is.

I like the move but I don't understand the timing.  Why do it now, 5 games into the season?  Why not at the beginning of the year?  What changed?

 

They really thought Peterman was NFL material because he looked good in shorts and red jerseys?
