Matt Barkley on the sidelines

Recommended Posts

Given that Barkley is much younger and was far more effective in his start, it would be hard to imagine Mc'dermott preferring Derek Anderson.

I’d love to have him back. However I think he’s looking for a starting opportunity. Not sure he would get one anywhere else, though.

He just might have been thrilled he wouldn’t be thrown into the fray!

Maybe as a qb coach or some type of offensive quality control assistant

Yeah after Fosters TD, Barkley was on the sideline smiling and chatting it up w everyone.  Seems like a good teammate for sure

Barkley letting it fly on that first play against the Jets, was the turning point of Robert Fosters career. Without that play, who knows where he is? Barkley showed me that Dabol isn’t the problem and it also got Peterman cut. He might have helped us discover McKenzie and Foster. I’m all about Barkley being back. If he has to play we will be in good shape.

I'd love it if we sign Barkley for 2-3 years @ 5m per. He'd be our Foles (who is having a great game vs Rams tonight)

Not with Josh Johnson, Mark Sanchez and Cody Kessler out there .

$5m? that seems high. He's never been a very good NFL QB.

Way better than having the defeated, glum look of that supposedly great guy Peterman on the sidelines.

 

My coach used to say that if you're not in the game, your role is to be a cheerleader.


Maybe they don't teach that anymore?

They gave McCarron 5m per. . It's the going rate for a top notch backup who could be a starter. And it would keep him here for the foreseeable future.

Thumbs up to Matt Barkley.  We may want our backup to be more mobile so we can continue to run our offense if Allen gets hurt, but I like Barkley

The team obviously loves Barkley too.  In McDermott's speech, he says "where's our 260 lb. QB" and someone yells "yeah Barkley" and the whole team chuckled.  That's a good sign that Barkley is all in.

Anderson is gone. There is no way Barkley doesn't get the backup nod for next year. Matt is young and smart and has just enough arm to make most throws.

McCarron was signed to be the starter. Barkley might be an ok backup, But there is a reason he was out of football. Happy to keep him for next year at much less than $5M

It would be difficult for him to get a starting job in the league.

 

I think it would be great for the Bills to sign him to a 2-3 year deal.
