With the Quarterback position up for grabs, Head Coach Rex Ryan scoffed at pundits who think that he will only be taking two of the QB’s in camp into the regular season. EJ Manuel, Matt Cassel and Tyrod Taylor will all be competing for the starting job and backup.
“I would think – it’d be hard for me to fathom that those three won’t be on the roster,” Ryan told WKBW’s Joe Buscaglia. “Unless Peyton Manning gets cut, or something like that – I don’t see that happening; maybe Archie Manning will be available – but yeah, I think it’s a safe bet to say those three will be on the roster.”

Just days after the Philadelphia Eagles released WR DeSean Jackson on the same day that it was reported that he had ties to gang activities, which Jackson later denied, teams came a calling and the Buffalo Bills were one of them. Other teams that have shown interest in the veteran receiver are the Oakland Raiders and the Washington Redskins.
The Bills are interested because he is one of the top receivers in the NFL but would the franchise be willing to put up with his off-field antics? The fact that Jackson is used to the quick pace offense that the Bills are now turning to is a huge plus. On the negative side, is there a quarterback that will be able to deliver the ball to such a player? Right now, no, there is not. E.J. Manuel completed less than 60% of his passes in 2013 where as Oakland’s Matt Shaub completed 61.2 of his passes and Washington’s RGIII 60.1. Add to that that Jackson is a “West Coast” guy and the odds are stacked against the Bills. But it’s worth the look.
Home Season Finale with Dolphins to be blacked out
The Buffalo Bills turned in their most solid game of the season with Rookie QB EJ Manuel going at least 70 yards on three drives, that lasted at least eight plays and concluded in touchdowns.
“Those are the things that you get excited about and at the same time you get frustrated about because you want that more and more,” Bills coach Doug Marrone said. “I think it shows the capability of what you can do and then it comes a matter of time. Again, it goes back to … being consistent.”
The Bills conclude the season on the road against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Great seats and tickets remain for both games.
