David Tyree, and questions rampant here🛸, answered in the original link published BY THE BILLS makes me wonder how much we actually retain - or even read for that matter. 🤦‍♂️We have a hard enough time reading inbetween the lines lol. We need to get the info we are offered correct!!! Im not sure whether to laugh or shake my head. Youd think we are Dolphins fans or something😂

He still has to be good at football.

 

So..

 

Potentially? Maybe.

 

Definitely? No.

I mean...Beane said they'll go with those 3...in may...sssoooo.....

At the end of the day, we've seen them make questionable (at the time) roster decisions. I dont think its out of the question so definitively BUT Id hope/think they learned their lesson w no vet qb last year. So at the end of the day 2 QB obv makes it easier to be heavier at other positions BUT i think it comes down to how TJ does. If they dont wanna be without a vet, but are impressed enough with TJ that they believe in him and dont want to lose him (remains to be seen) then at the very least I can envision a senerio where they roll 3 deep.  That said, its a long time between now and sept and anything can happen so speculation is a moot point until the bullets fly in the summer imo

Do you see Tyree Jackson on the PS?

 

What I like about T Jax is that he is a poor mans Josh Allen. Similar build, skill set, athleticism, strengths and weaknesses

.

I was pretty obvious in my desire to see Buffalo grab him from the 6th round on. I'm happy Buffalo got him for those reasons.

As a non-starter, with similar skills, he seems a great project backup that allows Daboll to keep most of a Josh Allen offense

in place if T Jax can develop into a reasonable backup.

 

Neither DA or Barkley can offer that

I like Barkley.  I think hes the backup this season with Jackson on the practice squad.  I think Jackson may be raw enough for it to be a safe move.

Everyone thinks David Tyree will be given the 3rd spot just because he was a local product.  There’s no evidence the Bills will even keep 3 QB’s on the team

I know.  That is what I said.  I think they only keep 2.

I hear ya, I think you consider Barkley a veteran despite his short comings as a starter during his tenures as one. 

 

I think Tyree goes to the PS

So we're gonna bring in a former WR to play QB? Culley had a tough enough time transitioning from WR to QB COACH. I think this would be even more difficult.

 

I guess you never know.

Happy for the guy. He stepped in to a bad situation last year and absorbed more than his fair share of crazy hits on basically a week’s notice—he deserves to go out (again) on whatever terms he wants. I do hope he finds a role with the Bills to stick around for JA.

Agreed on Barkley. 

The cool/good part is TJ is in control of his destiny to a degree - which is all you can hope for as a UDFA. He COULD push to become the 2 next year. If he impresses and forces them to keep him up (but do the whole not dress thing) then so be it. If he struggles but they still like him then PS is an easier option. I totally forget, did Cardale initially get placed on the PS? Either way, its possible they have similar paths- for better or worse.

Beane mentioned that he intends to keep three quarterbacks on the roster for near future.

 

"Right now we’re going to roll with these three . We’ll see how Tyree adjusts and how he does and give him a chance and compete. We’re excited we got Tyree and we’re excited to see him this weekend."

 

Ok so they are carrying three thru camp. Not really ground breaking.

Good point on cardale. I read his wikipedia because I honestly don't recall if he was sent to the PS. It mentions nothing of it, and given the way this team has been ran. I think they actually carried 3, but I could be totally wrong.  Cardale was a 4th round pick vs a UDFA .

 

I think TJ clears waivers for PS unless some team with depth thinks he's worth the risk. I can't see why after drafting Allen as high as they did with the amount of WRs and RBs they they think they have to protect him.

Cardale was on the active roster as 3rd string behind EJ and Tyrod, but he won a national title wasn’t an UDFA.  He played in one game.

 

I think Tyree will also be on the active roster as 3rd string.  Who knows?  Kid could be the next Kurt Warner, or Warren Moon!

Anderson is not needed as much now that we have an actual QB coach. Barkley will be fine as the player in Josh's ear on the sidelines and in the QB room, you should just hope to god he doesn't have to play.

There you go. Bad QBs are always available.

 

 

Do Jax fans now expect him to become a coach like our fans do with DA?

The uniformed fan in me (that amounts to 100%) is a kind of excited about him retiring because we may have an opportunity to bring in a better QB to compete for 2 or 3.

This could upgrade our depth and also be another mentor type to Allen.

After his last concussion I don't think he wanted to get hit in the head with anything harder than a Nerf ball.

I could swear they are bringing in a QB as a camp invite, not a UDFA, other than TJ of course.

 

Good memory.  "Southern Illinois QB Sam Straub: Threw for 4,336 yards with 37 touchdowns and 20 interceptions. Had 20 TDs passes as a junior in 2017."

I thought Barkley put together one of the best QB games by a Bills QB last season?  First Jets game.  

 

Our WR looked better, we racked up the points, and while stats aren't everything he had the best QBR and passer rating of a Bills QB last season, passed for 2 TD, 0 INT 232 yds, 9.3 YPA.

 

Don't get me wrong, the Bears did the experiment of what he looked like over a longer stretch, but for a game or two, if he can continue as he did there, he seemed quite competent.
