Orton is the biggest kitty cat to ever play on the Bills. No one should ever mention that scrub who just stealing on last paycheck. 

He played pretty well for the Bills.

I'd flip #1 and #2.  Otherwise, agreed!

I respectfully disagree. Fitz put up slightly more yards and touchdowns per game, but Tyrod threw way less picks and was one of the best rushing QBs in the league.

There aren't 2 more diametrically opposite playing style.

 

Yes Tyrod was a better rusher, but not by much and Fitz threw a lot more INTs.  Tyrod was far too conservative and afraid to take chance whereas Fitz didnt care much about the stats, he would do what he thought he had to to win, one of the reasons he threw so many Q4 ints when he would launch the ball to try win it in the end.

1) Ryan Fitzpatrick

2) Tyrod Taylor

3) Drew Bledsoe

 

There's no much separating these three from each other,  but it's a considerable drop-off to the next tier, which would include, in no particular order,  Kyle Orton,  Rob Johnson,  Doug Flutie and maybe JP Losman.

I think I’m doing this backwards 

 

Tomorrow I'm going to ask everyone to rank the 3 worst QB's in Bills history. 😈

They averaged like 20 points/ game (I could be wrong but they have averaged more than with EJ that year or it was very close) and they had one of the greatest defenses in Bills history that year.

 

no one will agree because everyone hates Whaley but if Allen on those teams, they were a SB team.

He had the 2nd most rushing yards and 2nd most rushing TDs of any QB in the league during his time with the Bills (2015-2017). Fitz wasn’t in the same universe when it came to rushing.

Being risky and aggressive is a bad trait if it rarely pays off. Fitzpatrick led 4 4th quarter comebacks in 4 seasons. Tyrod had 3 in 3 seasons and somehow managed to not throw a crap ton of interceptions.

Flutie, Tyrod and Fitz in whatever order you want. There isn’t anyone else in the conversation (Orton is next).
 

Please, please, please do not say Bledsoe. I posted his stats in that Tyrod thread. If you like 57% completion, more turnovers than TDs, 110 sacks in 40 games and a losing record, he’s your man. Don’t let the 8 game stretch fool you. If you do that, count that Trent Edwards 5 game stretch. Bledsoe was so bad but for some reason people remember it differently. No one has been given the benefit of the doubt more than him. He stinks.

Somewhere Mark Weiler's eyes are smiling reading those words.

After reading through the Tyrod legacy thread (really makes you love the offseason) I woke up this morning wanting to fight by ranking the top 3 quarterbacks for the Bills between the Post-Kelly era and before Josh arrived. Curious how each of you would rank the Bills quarterbacks between 1997-2017, here are your options:

 

Todd Collins

Doug Flutie

Rob Johnson (pro tip: this is not the answer) 

Alex Van Pelt

Drew Bledsoe

J.P. Losman 

Kelly Holcomb

Trent Edwards

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Brian Brohm

E.J. Manuel

Thad Lewis

Jeff Tuel

Kyle Orton

Tyrod Taylor

Matt Cassel

Nathaniel Peterman

 

Who are your top 3? 

 

Why do you want to torture yourself (and everyone else…)

Doug Flutie

Tyrod Taylor

Ryan Fitzpatrick

Kyle Orton

Rob Johnson 

Drew Bledsoe

JP Losman

Trent Edwards

EJ Manuel

Kelly Holcomb

Thad Lewis

Alex Van Pelt

Matt Cassel

Todd Collins

Jeff Tuel

Nathaniel Peterman

    Flutie was a weak armed bum with “ small man syndrome “ on teams with great defenses and good rushing attacks. 
    The only Bills QB I remember who was better at chucking it into the turf short of his receivers due to lack of arm talent was old Vince Ferragamo. 
    Put wonder boy Dougie on the 2002 team and it’s a 4-12 season at best.
