Buffalo Bills All-Drought team: Offensive runoff polls

New, comments

We need to break some ties on the offensive side of the ball.

Buffalo Bills fans are amazing. Whether through healthy disagreement or careful conspiracy, the margin of victory on multiple polls for our All-Drought roster is razor-thin.

The quarterback poll closed over the weekend. With over 3100 votes cast, Tyrod Taylor and Drew Bledsoe were separated by a mere eleven! Though Taylor held the lead, the margin of victory was too close to call the poll decisive.

Running back was also a dead heat. Of more than 3000 votes, Fred Jackson led with 1461 against LeSean McCoy’s 1446 when the polls closed. That’s a fifteen-vote difference!

We’re also well into the voting on our second starting wide receiver, but with more than 2000 votes cast, Lee Evans and Stevie Johnson are separated by only two percentage points, and 25 total votes.

Rather than make a selection and shortchange the practically-equal voices choosing another candidate, let’s turn this over to a set of runoff polls. While 96 percent of voters chose either Jackson or McCoy in our running back poll, the top two candidates for quarterback (83 percent) and wide receiver (88 percent) had room to work with. We’ll take away the other options, handing you a set of binary polls. Cast your final vote for each one!


Remember, in the case of running back and wide receiver, we’ll reuse the runners-up on a later date to choose a skill position “flex” player for our roster. So this won’t be the last you’ll see of them. Tomorrow, we’ll begin discussing the defenders of the drought.
