Back-Up QB Discussion



In the recent Buddy Nix approval poll there have been some comments disapproving his work based on the lack of a true back-up QB - specifically related to keeping Thigpen and trading for Tavaris Jackson. While I can understand that some fans expect this aspect of the team to have a perfect solution, it simply isn't the case this season. With that being said though, I would be curious what current back-up QB Bills fans would rather have than Tavaris Jackson.

I am having a hard time thinking of another team's back-up that I would feel comfortable with if Fitz got hurt.

Matt Flynn couldn't beat out a 3rd round rookie. Ryan Mallett has been questionable with the Pats. Colt McCoy is nothing to get excited about.

The only two that I see who have been successful are TJ Yates and Tim Tebow. Yates was fortunate to have a stellar D in Houston, and minimzed mistakes as a 7th round pick. I don't think anyone would look at Yates and say "I told you he would be good."

Tebow also had the advantage of playing with a good defense, and delivered a number of clutch plays last year as the Broncos finished 8-8 and won a game in the playoffs. He has also delivered a media circus to New York - which I would rather not have in Buffalo. And considering that a firstround pick was spent on tebow, no experts at this point have said he can develop into an NFL quarterback - not one.

Please let me know if there is someone missing, or a QB you would rather have that Tavaris Jackson. You can keep Curtis Painter, Dan Orlovsky, Graham Harrel, and Chase Daniels all day. I'm good with TJ.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
