I’d take Bortles. He’s similar in skill set to Allen.  
However if they don’t address the defense, it doesn’t matter if we have a capable backup or not, bc no backup will be able to carry the team to victory like JA17 did during the 4-0 start.

Barkley of course... He is the only one that knows the system as good as anyone. I doubt Bortles would catch up at all.

No they don't, Bortles can run and that is it... He cannot pass.

 

Yes agreed it doesn't matter.

I had hopes for Davis Webb this year, after he played such a big roll in the offseason workouts. I've never seen him play (I tend to avoid pre-season games, when there are some). But he is Josh's size.

 

Any chance for promotion to QB2 for him?

Learning this complex offense would be a challenge I'd imagine. I doubt he'd give us much this year. 

From a skills standpoint? Of course he's an upgrade. He's athletic and once threw for 4400 yards and 35 TD's in the league.

I happen to like Barkley. Lets face it, if Josh goes down nobody on this current roster or Bortles for that matter is saving the season. Every once in a while I'll remember the Jets game 2 years ago when Barkley dismantled the Jets on their home field and it makes me smile.

You get a guy who has been studying the bills playbook for quite a few months for one thing. Face the facts , the Bills in their current interaction rely 100 percent on Josh Allen to win games.  He is our Porsche.  There is no substitute.

Well.. How many teams around the league boast of having a Frank Reich caliber backup QB on their roster? And if you did have a Ryan Fitzpatrick quality of backup on your team, wouldn’t you rather have the worst possible option instead? Think about it.. if Allen goes down, we’re picking top 3.. Could get a Bosa caliber player there, Garrett or a Julio Jones or Calvin Johnson.. better than finishing 8-8... If Josh goes down I want Nathan Peterman to come back to Buffalo.. give me the worst possible QB imaginable if Josh goes down.. load up on ridiculous talent to load our roster up with for when Josh comes back..

I wouldn't mind seeing Fromme get a shot if Allen goes down. Just my 2 cents....

Like with an NRA approved and endorsed semi automatic weapon?

🤔

😳
