From Chan's own mouth, Tarvaris isn't expected to rise above 3rd string this season. THIS SEASON!

The Bills org spent $1.75 Million for a 1 year contract and traded away a draft pick (a 7th, but moves up to a 6th if he is active for 6 games) for a 3rd string QB. Sound move!

Thank you, Buffalo Bills, for once again proving that you are who we thought you were.

Dude threw for over 3000 yards last year, we needed someone that is an actual QB (not Brad) for that spot.   $1.75M is reasonable, and 7th round picks are a joke.   Would you rather Ralph just keep the money to add to the stack he'll never spend?

The Bills are the biggest joke of the NFL and have been for over 10 years.  Nothing will change probably until they move....

7th round picks have almost no value.   And  1.75 mil ain't a large salary.  So what is your point?

He should be starting and he doesn't even dress.
Typical.

For this they ditched Vince Young?  At least there was some upward potential with Young.  They could have kept Young in third and saved a buck plus a draft choice.

I'm guessing that Jackson isn’t picking up the offense as quickly as Chan had hoped he would and that is why he’ll stay at #3 for the season.  That and because Brad Smith has been working more with the WRs due to the lack of depth/talent there.

What does Buffalo's Pro Personnel Department do anyway?

This has a lot to do with Chan's cronyism with Thigpen. Chan will do whatever it takes to keep Thigpen employed. That's why Vince Young was cut. Same thing with Choice. Why did Johnny White barely get any touches in preseason? Because Chan doesn't want anyone to challenge his pet players. Both guys will be here as long as Chan is HC (and not a day longer).

What Chan states publicly means nothing.  If Fitz were to go down with an injury, then lets see what he says, until that happens it's pretty much a moot point anyway.

It just amazes me how so many people seem to believe every word spoken by the Bills must be 100% correct.  They are required to tell their fan base everything!

IIRC, isn't there some condition with the trade/contract that is based on games which Jackson dresses? I thought it changes the round of the draft pick Seattle acquired in the deal.

Remember in the preseason when Vince Young and Tyler Thigpen stunk it up.  They dumped Young and wanted an upgrade over Thigpen so they traded for Jackson. Remember right after the trade for Jackson, there was talk Thigpen could be cut.  There is the only one plausible explanation at this point:  Now that they've seen T. Jackson up close and in person, they now realize he sucks worse than Thigpen which is why he remains 3rd string.  The trade did not upgrade the back-up QB position as they had hoped.  And quite honestly, is there anyone who can honestly say they thought Jackson would be an upgrade for the Bills after watching him play in Minnesota and Seattle?  He was horrible!

He will be dressed up as our QB for the future while Buffalo yet again skips on drafting a young franchise QB to develop.
