Draft another QB

Recommended Posts

I’m not saying it has to be a top-10 Pick, but if Allen misses major time and doesn’t show anything when he comes back, I think we need to either...

 

1) trade down, gather picks for 2020 and try again for a QB

 

2) draft a guy anywhere in rounds 2-4. Stidham, Jackson from UB are just s couple of the multitude of possibilities. 

 

Yes no or maybe?

The Bills literally have the worst offensive line and wide receivers in the league. That is not an exaggeration. Steve Young looked like crap playing with the same kind of bottom feeder talent in his first two years in Tampa Bay.

 

The owner made his choice of head coach and GM,...they in turn made their choice of future franchise QB in Josh Allen. The next step in this progression is getting a big upgrade in talent around Josh Allen. This is the one and only answer.

 

If someone doesn't like it, or doesn't have any belief it will happen for Josh Allen, then they will have to simply wait for the whole darn thing to fail and that won't happen until 2020 at the earliest.

 

I think fans forget how bad the talent level is on offense. Tom Brady would look bad here.

Yes...   if Allen doesn’t show anything when he comes back.

 

And keep drafting QBs until we find a winner.

 

But if Allen looks like the guy by the end of the season, we’ve got to start building up the WR corps and OL.   Obviously.

Please stop overreacting.  he has zero supporting cast around him.  Let's be real, Tom Brady wouldn't be that successful with our "O" line and our Receiving Corps.  Remember that Peyton Manning was absolute garbage during his rookie year and so were many others.  When are we gonna have the mentality to stop jumping ship every year for 1st year players/coaches?  Dynasties do NOT happen over night.  I know it's been growing pains for a while now, but it's difficult to build a franchise when we clean house almost every year.  Be patient and let Josh Allen develop.  He will be successful!

If we don’t land a decent back-up QB in free agency, of course we should take one at some point in the 2019 draft.  I wouldn’t take one in the first 3 rounds, but I’d definitely take one.

I understand he has a bad supporting cast. But all the things he’s shown to be (indecisive, inaccurate, missing open receivers, especially in the flat, moving back in the pocket instead of moving up), have been issues he’s had his entire collegiate career as well. 

 

I want Allen to be good as much as anyone, but if there’s no improvement, with the amazing defense we have, the cap space we have, and the draft picks we have, shouldn’t we look into a better backup option than we did this season???

Worst receivers?    No question.

 

Worst offensive line?   Very debatable.

 

Lot's of bad O-lines around the league.

The Bills need to add another QB.  Would be nice to find a vet, but if not available drafting another isn't crazy.  Assumes Anderson not in Buffalo next year.

It's not a terrible idea but it will never happen imo. These coaches and GMs have enormous egos, selecting a QB in rounds 1-2 would be them admitting they tailed with Allen and it's way too early for anyone to make that call.

 To me this is not so much about Josh Allen as it is the fact that Peterman is a bust if you can call a fifth round pick that there needs to be another QB on the roster whether it be a veteran or a after the first round draft pick of a QB I don’t want to reach for a QB in this next draft I want to draft supporting cast for a QB because we just used a seventh overall pick on a rock UB he needs protection he needs A running game and he needs past catchers that not only will catch the ball if it’s not perfect but will break tackles and do something with it after they catch it

Drafting another QB is just good business... I can't believe people are so dam sensitive about Allen being supplanted.

If you don’t like Allen you won’t like Jackson.

 

He is super raw and has some accuracy concerns as well. I think he’s a poor mans Josh Allen. 

 

But im glad he’s UBs QB 🤘

Competition brings out the best in men, if there is a Derek Carr or Drew Brees prospect in RD2? How could you not take him? I'm an Allen supporter, but I care about what's in the best interest of the Buffalo Bills numer uno.

I’m a fan of getting the kid from UB. 

 

I know they are playing lights out right now and mostly because of him. But where is he expected to go? I highly doubt a kid from UB in the MAC is getting drafted as early as round 3-5 no matter what he does. 

 

And yes, don’t bother reminding me about Mack. And yes, I already know the WR Johnson is slated to go in the first few rounds as well.

What we needn't do is neglect fixing massive holes in the roster by drafting another quarterback high.  The key to a standout offense is, generally, the offensive line.  The Bills haven't bought into that concept in quite some time.  A quarterback, even one that wouldn't normally function well when pressured, can be a star behind a solid line.  And it makes all the difference for running backs when there's a hole or even a sliver to squirm through, unless your name is Jim Brown.  Of course you need good receivers as well.  But none of it comes together without that stout front.  So Beane drafts a potentially franchise quarterback but paper tapes a seriously broken line with mediocrities such as Newhouse.  Of course his rookie quarterback gets injured early on.  But Allen needn't have been thrown to the wolves had Beane not made another bad decision, that's trading McCarron BEFORE determining if Peterman was no longer an interception machine in regular season games.  Beane's mistakes have been serious.  We won't be Carolina until we figure out how to be.  Yes, it will take time, but it'll also take sound decision making.

please just stop this.

 

Jim Kelley went 4-12 his first year.  And that is after having 2 years to warm up in the USFL.

 

Way way way too early to start this discussion … again.

This post is awfully familiar to a post by *********** a couple of days ago. How many "draft another qb post are we going 2 have?

Build around Allen for the next two years, if Allen does not develop, draft another qb high.

Allen is week to week, not severely injured, lets get that out of the way.  The only way that drafting a QB makes sense in the next draft is  if a decently rated qb falls to the 4th or 5th round and they are drafted to be groomed as a backup/failsafe option.   Buffalo invested too much in Allen and people are giving up way too soon.    For better or worse, Buffalo isn't drafting another QB high for at least two more years.

I'm practically driving the "Allen is probably too raw to make it" bus and even I think we need to wait until after the season to make this kind of decision. We don't know that he won't come back much improved after the injury. The way I see it there are three outcomes:

 

1. Allen makes a leap in the second half of the year, and so all we need is a new back up going into next year.

2. Allen slowly improves but isn't where we'd hoped he'd be by year end. As a result we bring in a starting caliber QB and make Allen compete for the job in training camp. If he's the right guy he'll win that battle.

3. Allen continues to look terrible, and there's zero improvement start to finish. We bring in a starting caliber QB to compete for the job, and we draft another QB of the future perhaps even with our first round pick.

Think again. A guy by the name of Big Ben Roethlisberger (Miami Ohio) was drafted in the 1st round (#11 overall) in the 2004 draft. Last time I looked, Miami (Ohio) was in the MAC.

I'd go ahead and grab both... Johnson in the 2nd, and Jackson around the 4th...  Some see Tyree as a 3rd, but that seems a bit high... Depends on how the MAC shakes out for UB, and how Tyree does in UB's Bowl game...
