Whaley: “We are almost in quarterback purgatory”
Um, we kind of know the Buffalo Bills aren’t in a good spot when it comes to quarterback, but you have to wonder if GM Doug Whaley is just going to stand pat if this mess continues. Whaley has built this team to win now and they are missing the biggest piece of the puzzle without a viable quarterback.
“We are almost in quarterback purgatory. We’re good enough that we won’t be picking first or second overall,” Whaley told WGR Radio.
I wish he were wrong, but at least he is willing to say it out loud and admit what everyone already knows. It is refreshing but not reassuring. Especially when the quarterback battle between Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel is a battle for mediocrity.
“The preseason games are going to be a great evaluator. I do see progress every day,” he said. But what will the Bills do if no one steps up? If the 2015 Bills, full of offensive talent, cannot make the playoffs you wonder who is going to be the scapegoat. Chances are it’ll be Whaley.
