Pat White in for a visit as per Ian Rappaport. He is intriguing to me compared to some of the others out there.

The #Bills are bringing in at least one QB today for a workout, per source: Pat White. Intriguing.

Yea cant see us winning too many games with him as our starting qb. I think our best chance with him would be to run 50 times a game and play outstanding defense.

The Redskins did not want to let him go. He has upside which is way better than someone like Trenative. I would be cool with him.

Considering 2 impact players are returning from injury and MAYBE their #3/4 CB (Brooks) that was probably their plan anyway....

Yea good point. Still, I hate basically throwing away the season and being out of any type of playoff contention come Halloween time. I just want to sign a guy like Josh Freeman so that we have at least a fighting chance against teams with good passing attacks. I have zero patience with this team and I hate the "wait til next year" crap.

Pat White is probably the 2nd best option available besides Freeman.

Freeman sounds like he is going to Oakland, White maybe a better option

Great. Another guy who has accomplished absolutely nothing at the NFL level. He'll fit in with Tuel in that regard.

14 years of patience can become quite daunting...

Sadly, you are probably right. Our other only option, besides Freeman of course, would be to trade a late round pick for a quality backup or borderline starter on another team.

Lienert was more intriguing, so was Vince Young.  Both came and did not have what it takes.  Next on the list is Pat White.  Freeman is not on the list because I want to see a little bit more play out.

hopefully we can get the run game charging on a 50-60 runs a game type scheme. Hackett is gonna have to tweak the whole thing on the fly

Pat White looked a lot better against the Bills' D than Tuel.
