11-12: McDermott's Bye Week Presser at 1:30 PM ET - Josh Allen Will Start Week 12 vs. JAX If Healthy

Recommended Posts

McDermott's Bye Week Presser at 1:30 PM ET today.  Hopefully he will shed some light on the QB plans moving forward along with any injury updates.  This will be the only team media availability until following Monday. 

 

Will post live Twitter and Facebook presser links as they become available: Buffalo Bills Video Live

 

Quick Hits: Why Josh Allen Will Start in Week 12, If Healthy

The highly-anticipated return of Josh Allen is seemingly in sight.

 

Should he be back at full health, the rookie will retake the reins of the offense when the Bills return from their bye week.

 

“Correct,” head coach Sean McDermott confirmed on Monday. “If healthy, [Allen] will start.”

 

Allen has missed the past four games with an elbow sprain, an injury he acquired midway through Buffalo’s Week 6 loss to the Texans. The signal-caller returned to practice last week in a limited capacity and has continued to move forward in his recovery this week.

 

“We’re still making progress,” McDermott said. “He threw on his rehab again [Monday]. We’ll continue to move forward and take it one day at a time.”

At least it solves the Allen v. Barkley debate. And of course it's the only that really makes sense for the team long-term. I didn't see the play where Milano had to be put in the concussion protocol. But, that's two starting LBers in the last few weeks that have needed that time to heal. Sad, but timing couldn't better with the bye week as it seems to take more than a week to clear the protocol.

Still confident in Nate? I'm confident in Nate, too. As in I'm confident he has no place on this roster unless Derek Anderson decided to hang 'em up again during the bye week. And I wouldn't blame him if he did decide to retire again. It took a ton of coaxing to get him off his couch to begin with and coming back only to get concussed might have him reevaluating his priorities. 

 

But back to Nate: he is fourth on the depth chart. If Anderson stays, Nate is gone.

"I'm still confident in Nate"????  WTF.  Confident in what?  What does McD see in him as a QB???  Jeesh.

Good. Important for Allen to continue to get reps and develop so he can be in better position to make a jump next year.

 

Barkley looks like he should be the veteran backup on this team instead of Anderson.

If Anderson stays then I’d expect Peterman to get released mid week. Maybe McD is waiting a day or two so it’s not like they couldn’t wait to get rid of him.

That's some funny ***** right there!

His actions will speak louder than words. If they release Barkley, and keep Nate then like I don’t know. 

 

I fully expect that Peterman will be gone, but he isn’t just going to go out there and crush a guy in a presser.

I know, I know.  I agree with you.  I think they will cut him.  They have a legit reason based on performance of Barkley now.

My guess is they'll cut Peterman and then put him on the PS. Allen will be the starter and Barkley the backup. Anderson will be the 3 and inactive on game day.

Makes sense to me except I wouldn't bother with a PS spot for Peterman.

I think that Barkley makes Derek Anderson expendable. I get rid of DA and Peterman and keep Logan Thomas as an emergency backup

So dumb to not play Barkley. We will go back to scoring 9 points a game on a good day. Thanks Mcd

9 points or not it's not stupid because of the fact that Josh is the future. Better to get experience in this year when it doesn't matter as much as next year

I don’t agree. The guys not ready right now. He’s played terrible and wasn't a good qb in college anyway. I’m not saying he will never be good but he sucks right now. Barkley played well and deserves a chance to back up his first start. There’s no harm to that. Allen’s not going anywhere and he probably should have sat out this whole year anyway. If Barkley ends up being real good, it would be so dumb to hurt ourselves by not finding out. Allen is going to get his chance regardless. Barkley might not. Best case scenario we have 2 good QBs. That would be a great  problem to have. Let Barkley prove he can’t do it before you take his chance away. Allen’s not going anywhere.
