What is a good year for EJ?

So, post draft Buffalo Bills talk all seems to revolve around the Watkins trade, and how it all depends on if EJ has a good year in order to justify the first next year that was given up. I find this interesting for a few reasons. First, people assume we would have used that pic on a QB next year if EJ doesnt have a good year, although he is the first QB the Bills have ever taken with their first pick. so I dont understand why people think the odds are good we would do that again so soon after a bust( if EJ does bust obviously)? The other thing I hear is "EJ has to have a good year" or "EJ has to make that jump". So if he threw 23 TDs with 21 INT throwing for 3300 yards and a QB rating of 73.9, and but he had 5 4th quarter comebacks, and six game winning drives, would that be a good year? Would those numbers make people happy? If the team went 10-6 and made the post season with the above numbers, would you say he is the starter for certain, or would you want a new QB? Those were Eli Mannings numbers in 2007 the year the Giants won the superbowl. So what makes EJ's season good next year? If EJ was the top rated passer with a 35 to 10 TD ratio, but the Bills went 7-9, would that be successful? Or would you prefer he throws 18 tds and 15 INTs and the Bills make the playoffs? Or if he throws 15tds and 10 ints and the bills go 2-14, but his mechanics look ten times better? So Is it winning, mechanics or numbers? What justifies EJ having a good year?
