I have said NO to this since the Bills signed Fitz to the extension. Although now I am having second thoughts..
Depending how the Bills finish the season, will tell me if Fitzpatrick can lead this team next year to the playoffs. If we finish well, not that they have to go 3-1 but if they go 1-3 and are competitive in all of the games then I think we should draft an OLB 1st pick (Courtney Upshaw) or maybe a top WR or CB depending on who is available. But not a QB.
However if we go 5-11, and are not competitive in every game, my faith in Fitzpatrick will definitely waiver. While even now I am fully confident in Fitz's abilities, there are some GREAT QBs available, and I dont know if we can pass on them. While we are definitely out of Luck contention and should not even consider a trade for him, guys like Barkley and RG3 have really impressed me. Landry has not, he seems like the Blaine Gabbert of this draft to me.. could be wrong though.
Its unknown whether either RG3 or Barkley will come out but if they both do and we go 5-11 we could have a chance and either of them. Personally RG3 is the guy I like. He is unbelievable. An NCAA record holding Track Athlete and a very accurate QB with a great deep ball. He will probably win the Heisman. And if you watching the Heisman show now he is wearing superman socks - with a cape. He would be a great QB for the Bills to get and would be instantly inject life into this fan base that is running out of patience for a play off team.
So any thoughts?
