Who’s the one FA you want in 2020?

Recommended Posts

I’m going to stir the pot here...

 

For me?

 

Marcus Mariota.

 

The kid had a new offensive coordinator every season in Tennessee, they refused to hand the ball to Henry when he was at QB, and he’s already had huge success before in the league.

 

Before you all flame away, he would be a SIGNIFICANT upgrade over Barkley, and what has Tennessee/Philadelphia showed us the past few years? Never hurts to have a good QB 2.

 

Lastly, I’m not sold on Josh Allen. I was extremely bullish on him early on but towards the end of the season my optimism has faded. 
 

Who is your number 1 target and why?

You need to change your name because the real McBeane isnt that dumb. Mariota does nothing for us,  we need someone who can actually help us win.

 

going for RT Jack Conklin.

Derrick Henry. If he does become  available I think the Bill's should pay what it takes to get him here. I have heard and said, "you shouldn't pay big $$ for RB's"... but this guy would make us SB contenders without really doing much else IMO.add another solid draft and we could be the 1 seed ne t year

Maybe Amari Cooper.  

 

I'd like Clowney but really should be on O.

Why even say this if you're just going to say this right after?

So you created a new thread to disguise another “I’m not sold on Josh Allen.”  


No?

 

I just gave my reasons for why I think Mariota would be a great addition to this team.

 

I want Josh to start next year and be great! It doesn’t hurt having a good backup in place though. Did you watch us play the Jets this season?

Am I not allowed to voice on here that I’m

not 100% sold on our QB?

 

I haven’t bashed the kid at all, just stated I’m not sold. Why is that so bad?

Then you should have stopped after your second point as an improvement over Barkley.

I just think it's kind of funny to basically say don't worry I'm not saying we should replace Allen and then basically follow it up with I'm not sure we don't need to replace Allen.

Say what you want.  Some of us are keen on your intent, which is to disguise your “not sold” bit in a new thread about looking to upgrade the back-up QB.

It is kind of a random thing to tack on there doesn't really have anything to do with the point of the OP at all.

If your going to pay Shaq you can probably throw some extra money and get a better edge in FA

Mariota stinks. I think Barkley is better than him.

I’ll ignore the Allen part, but Mariota will have a better shot at starting somewhere else. If you don’t think he’s looking to start next season you’re not playing with a full deck of cards here. He’s not going to buffalo to be a backup. Patriots, Panthers, Dolphins, Steelers, Indy, maybe LA are all more attractive jobs to someone who wants a chance to start

When anyone raises the slightest ounce of skepticism of Josh and our bottom 5 pass offense, they are immediately dismissed on this board.  Very odd

I’m sold on Allen and I still think QBs can be great assets. Always be drafting them for value and trade them. I’m surprised more organizations  with franchise QBs don’t constantly churn the late round QBs to get better draft capital.

No, just be honest in your post.  Could have easily just said bring in Mariota to compete with Josh for the starting QB gig.

To be fair I don’t understand why NFL teams don’t value the backup QB position. It’s widely considered the most important position in sports so why not add competitive depth?

 

What’s the downside of adding Mariota for teams like the Jets and Bills? It’s going to make Allen and Darnold sweat it out? Isn’t that a good thing?

Why would he go to either team? He is either soooooo bad very few teams will make an offer so he settles for a Jets or bills, or he’s decent and someone will pay him to have a chance to win a starting job. It makes zero sense for him to go to a team with a possible franchise quarterback on a rookie deal. His only shot to play is injury.

Jack Conklin. Likely to hit Free Agency and seems like a good character toughness fit that the Bills covet.
