The hole on the Bills roster that could ruin the season

I’m pretty surprised the Bills as a contender didn’t take out an insurance policy for Josh Allen. With Newton in the fold this division is going to be a dogfight and if Barkley/Fromm has to start meaningful games that could be the difference. 
 

I know you guys love Beane/McDermott and they are doing a great job, but to me they made a mistake here. 

Every team in the division has proven QBs behind their starter with the exception of the prohibitive favorite.  

 

You don’t like Barkley ? 
The last game that he started still gives you nightmares?

The one advantage Barkley has he's familiar  with the playbook and team. The lack of practice time due to covid hurts teams that had a high turnover.

I mean our backup situation is bad. I am a little surprised they are content with Barkley.

I mean they drafted Fromm so maybe they aren't.

Bringing in another QB is a delecate situation....if you bring in a vet who has been a starter and had success....you run a chance of creating a problem

 

I thought the bills handled it right.....Fromm wont be looked at as a threat to Allen but had a lot of college success....so he might be good

McBeane are not shy about signing former Panthers, obviously.  The best-known of former Panthers, they passed on. 
 

If you haven't noticed, they have a plan.  Call it a process.  Signing an expensive backup QB, especially a guy who considers himself a starter, isn't part of the plan.

The biggest hole on our roster is punter. We lose the field position game with regularity because of it.

This is funny because Barkley beat the brakes off the Jets. 
 

Does Jetfan even revisit his own threads anymore? Or does he just drive-by troll us now?

Guess you missed the part where I said three teams in NFL history won a Lombardi with a backup QB in the lineup.

 

You want a back up who can come in and win you a few games if your starter is out. Someone who can keep the ship afloat... if Allen is out for a 4-5 weeks, the Bills are screwed. They'll lose every game with Fromm/Barkley.

The Jets completely quit on Todd Bowles that game. I think Barkley’s overall body of work speaks for itself. 
 

The Bills had ample opportunities to upgrade that position this offseason and decided not to.

Its the most important position on the field. If Allen can’t beat out Joe Flacco, Colt McCoy, Andy Dalton, Jameis Winston, or Marcus Marietta than he’s probably not the guy.

They probably aren’t. I don’t think Fromm is the answer either; maybe they do. But Cam wasn’t signing with any team that he wouldn’t be at least competing to start.

Who is Tampa's insurance policy? Or SF? Or KC? Or Baltimore?


San Francisco has Nate Mullens who is pretty highly regarded around the league. 
 

Baltimore has RG3 who is far more accomplished than Barkley. 
 

KC and TB are up against the cap so they really don’t have that luxury. That said both of their coaches are offensive masterminds who can probably get solid play out of a Chad Henné type.

3 of the top 12 threads on the board started by this clown.  I know I've had enough of this crap.  GO AWAY.

The Bills are in the same position as 90% of the league, and that includes your Jets and NE - if they lose their starting QB for any significant length of time, they’re in big trouble. Bridgewater and NO last year notwithstanding, most backup QBs in this league are bad.

 

And it’s comical that you think Flacco isn’t completely washed up after flaming out in Denver last year. I’d be more worried about your starter if I were you anyways. Him, and the fact that your best player is routinely talking trash online trying to get outta town. Worry about that.

I think Flacco can be a Pro Bowl starter for the Jets by years end. Perhaps he had a Vinny Testavetde type run.

Based on what Beane and McD have done so far, I give them the benefit of the doubt.  They know Cam very well.  Perhaps they didn't believe he would be a good fit.  

Cam wants to be #1.  The Bills don't want a challenger to Allen on board at this point.  I agree w that assessment.  Barkley is #2, knows it, and is supportive of Allen from a vets perspective...perfect to help get Allen's head right.

Either Fromm or Barkley can be sufficient "game managers" who can do enough to not lose games that our Defense wins. I am comfortable with QB 2.

The only hole I see on the team is at TE, but that's not enough to derail the season.
