I’d give someone not currently on an NFL team a huge signing bonus and then tell him. ” all we want you to do is punish Brady. Don’t worry about the penalties and we’ll pay any fines you may get”

Bills sitting pretty with a young QBs with promise.  The generation is changing, just how life goes.

 

I think Brees will be back, at least this year and next. 

Foles will be back next year.

Eli I believe will retire.

Rothraper will retire.

Rivers has a couple years

Ryan has at least 3 as well as Flacco (same draft class)

Rodgers has at least 2 more as well.

Brady will play until someone puts that team down.

I know everyone wants Brady******* to retire ASAP , BUT before that happens I REALLY want to see us beat him > winning the division BEFORE he retires , 

I Don’t want to hear that we had to wait for Brady****** to retire for us to win the division, 

Goooo Bills !!!!

In all fairness Flacco was done 2 years ago.  Father Time just forgot he was in the league.

 

Flacco was done more than 2 years ago .   Got hot for one Superbowl run which allowed him to get paid and tie up too much of the cap.   All  for mostly mediocre QB play.

I mean Eli counts but he pretty much should be listed with the fallen at this point he's at least as done as Cam.

I'd say Eli is more "done" than Cam.  I can't see him getting another starting gig in the NFL, and I think the odds are he retires after the season.  Cam at least gets the rest of the season as a starter if/when he's healthy enough.

Rivers

Rivers faded the last couple weeks last season.  I don’t think Rivers can play at a high level for a season and the playoffs.  Last year his arm looked like a noodle at the end of the season.

 

But, he still competes well!

Fitz will be back in there when Rosen gets killed behind that line.

Yep- I noticed that also. He was short hopping balls and just didn’t have any zip.

If the Texans don't do something about their O-Line, the next quarterback to go might be Deshaun Watson.

 

In all honesty though, here are the ages of some prominent QBs:

Brady - 42

Brees - 40

Manning - 38

Rivers - 37

Roethlisberger - 37

Rodgers - 35

Ryan - 34

Flacco - 34

 

I'm not sure what is driving Brady at this point.  Stats?  Another Super Bowl?  Pure enjoyment of the game?  Common sense says he MUST done soon, but if he keeps playing at a high level...what stops him from going another 4-5 seasons?

 

Brees isn't much younger than Brady, but he's accomplished less on the championship side.  I see him giving the Saints 2-3 more seasons of trying to assemble a contender, and then he will call it quits as well.

 

I think Manning may give it another shot next year with a different franchise (if someone is willing to give him a temporary starting job), but I just can't see him playing much longer.  He doesn't seem like a guy willing to spend years with a backup job, and that's what he's probably looking at.

 

The big knock on Rivers is his lack of championships, and I think that will continue driving him for another 2-3 seasons.  If the Chargers stop looking like legit Super Bowl threats, he may consider being done.

 

Roethlisberger says he's going to play next year, but we'll see how the rehab goes and how Rudolph plays in his place.  Pittsburgh is showing signs of a rebuild, and I don't think he wants to stick around for that.  He's considered retirement before.

 

Rodgers and Ryan should have several years left in the tank.  Flacco is on his last starting gig, and will probably go another 5-6 years holding a clipboard and bouncing around the league.

That's not how the Fitzy cycle works bro! It's a closed loop, no beginning, no end...

Foles has a total of 45 starts.  That's less than 3 full years.

But he beat NE in a SB......that gives him a lot of brownie points for me...lol..

I'd call it the odds catching up to you after throwing so many passes in the NFL.

There are many franchise QB's to retire in the next 4 to 5 years.

 

That means the market to resign Josh Allen is going to be vicious.🙄

Getting rid of Brady would be like superman getting rid of Lex Luther or Batman getting rid of the Joker.  Just wouldn't be the same.  The villain must remain and be defeated.

The NFL has been protecting TB12 forever.  Only they have the power and officiating influence to remove him once fans grow tired of the same NE.  Eventually you would think for revenue purposes they'd wanna start promoting these younger quarterbacks?

Always shocked when I see how young Ryan is. He's one of those players that I've always assumed was in his late 30s after his third year or so.

I'm pretty sure Brady has nude selfies of Father Time or something, so he's not going anywhere for a while...

Agreed. Brady's time is coming, time to promote some new blood.

I think Josh will set up shop and stay here. If all goes well, the Bills will lock him up. Probably a lifer.

The odds are going to catch up to him soon. He's going to get injured at some point. Even a barbell falling on his foot or something.

I hope you're right.

 

I hope the Bills could lock him in with contract extensions--never let him test the open market.

 

For his part, Josh seems to genuinely like Buffalo. Maybe he'll give a home town discount. That would be way cool.
