After Week Two, Trent Edwards Leads AFC Q.B's

Not that numbers mean everything but I couldn't help myself to notice that after week 2 Trent Edwards is leading the AFC in passer rating by a decent gap, and second in TD's. His completion percentage is 64.3%, and his passer rating is a beautiful 104.9. And after hearing so much about how goooood Tom Brady looked on MNF, I just wanted to tell you Tom is 11th in the AFC and our own QB is number one. I thought it was totally unfair how they hyped Brady up that whole monday night game and forgot to give Edwards "any" credit for the way he was playing. Now, I do want to point out that before the season, and especially after the preseason I was not an Edwards fan. But if I learned one thing this year, it is not to look too far into preseason games. Granted, I did mention it probably wasn't all Edwards fault and equally blamed Dick Jauron and the offensive scheme for Edwards downfalls. However, right now it really looks like AVP has been the "key" to this now what I believe could be a high powered offense. Now, it has only been two games, and I realize there is at least 14 more to play, but I can't help to notice this team is starting to gel. As the weeks progress, you know T.O will find more catches and so will Lee. Just 5 catches for Owens and 3 for Lee after two games is way too little. AVP, in that respect, does need to find a way to get them more touches, they are the playmakers after all. As for Jackson, what can I say, he is playing awesome. And just think, this offense is without its best player (Lynch, in my opinion). Edwards has played great so far and is proving me wrong, and I love it. He has shown he can make all the throws, and the best thing is, he can improve even more on his already stellar play and he knows it. He is atop of the AFC so far, and that is great to see, especially with guys like Brady, Manning, Rivers and Rothlisberger in the AFC. My opinion would be to give this guy a contract extension as soon as possible, because for one: your keeping a what looks to be a future star and B: you could probably get this future star at a inexpensive price. My point- Trent hasn't really proven anything yet, and by signing him now versus this offseason (with his first playoff season under his belt I believe) would cost us less. If it were up to me I'd wait for the season to be over with, just to solidify my feelings on Trent,  but I know how Ralph thinks, and he does count his pennies most of the time. By signing him now, you probably save millions. Q.B's get some of the biggest money out there, and as one of Brian's article links said, "Trent is great value for the money he is making." Just think if he makes the playoffs this year, do you drop a $60 million + contract on him? Wouldn't you like to get a long term deal done now, before he does really well and asks for that kind of money? Well anyways, I am proud of our Q.B thus far and hopes he keeps it up. Remember, he did start very well last year and tanked bad. Take a look at how he ranks in the AFC versus some elite Q.B's and let me now know if you think he is the long term answer for the Bills and what you would do about his contract.
