sources tell me that #Bills GM Doug Whaley wants Cardale Jones to be 2017 starter. Further, team sources tell me that Doug wants to draft a CB no one has heard of with the 10th pick, and then a kicker who needs hip surgery in round two.

That is true. The only guy that I remember projected to go 1 that went back and was still picked 1st though was Luck. Most guys are advised that if they are projected there to go because it may not look like that a year from now. See Matt Barkley, Jimmy Clausen, Matt Leinart, etc...


There was a guy named Jay Clocker that went back to school and hurt his draft spot.

Not that I think this USC kid has proven anything.

Carucci used to be a reputable reporter.  Now he's just a hack.   

 

Why does reporting this make him a hack?

I love fake outrage in the morning.

Vic just said 2 days ago it was up to mcdermott.

I think the title of this thread is a stretch based on what the article actually says. That said, I wouldn't doubt that he wants the QB he drafted to start if he's ready. I would rather see him play than more TT running around too.

Draft a kicker that needs hip surgery - that sounds very Doug Whaley - ish.    Gotta be true.   :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

You dont find this report believable? After the embarrassment that is EJ and the ridiculous we got a piece of clay we can mold comment? Its so far fetched that Whaley wants his guy on the field?

"When all is said and done, the Bills could very well determine their best move is to swallow hard and stroke the check for Taylor. Otherwise, they might be inclined to follow through with a plan that is thought to be appealing to at least one member of their hierarchy, General Manager Doug Whaley, and that is going with Cardale Jones as the starter."

:lol:  literally laughed out loud
 
I like Cardale but DW has been a big part of a front office that has missed on guys like Russell Wilson, David Carr and Dak Prescott......passed right under his nose....but he trusts his eyes on Cardale? Hmmm :flirt:  :lol:


Arent you forgetting that Cardale is a piece of clay?

We won't need receivers because no one will be able to catch Cardale's 100 MPH passes to receivers 5 yards away.

The idea of Cardale being a starter in the NFL after what we have seen of him this year is completely ridiculous.   Seriously.

 

Come on guys.   Nobody thinks this is a real possibility.  Do you?

 

Only way he would earn the start is if he improves drastically in camp and the preseason.   He was the 3rd string this year.   Friggin 3rd.   He couldn't beat EJ.

 

In my opinion there is zero chance that Whaley honestly wants the coach to start Cardale at this point.

Cardale is now EJ? Cardale is the only picked I liked from last years draft and I'm fine with him playing over a 30million TT. Taking up cap space and continuing to play QB with a blindfold on, get out!!! Still, I think Whaley's lack of direction while building this program has to be alarming to the Pegula's.

Where did I say that Cardale is EJ? I think you quoted the wrong person.

What are you basing this on? The NFL is full of veteran QB's who can't play and teams know it but still trot them out there year after year. If your saying he can't and won't put it together, why did we draft him? He has some seriously ability, I think to many people just want to debate the TT thing instead of looking down the road.

Fastballs into the flat was a common trait for EJ during his stay with the Bills.

Sounds like Vic is inferring that, probably because Doug (reportedly) wanted to start Cardale the last few games of the season...

 

I too want to see Jones get his shot, but only if he wins a legit QB competition!

Its got zero to do with TT.   Why are you trying to make it about that.   

 

Thinking about Cardale on his own merits, he is not a starting caliber quarterback at this point in his career.   If he was, he would have been lighting up the Jets in garbage time in his last performance.   And maybe he would have lit things up in preseason.   Those are the only times we have got to see him.    And based on those performances, it is blatantly obvious he is not good enough to start in the NFL at this point in his career.

 

Maybe he becomes good enough.   But right now I would say he isn't close.   And I explained that he couldn't even beat out EJ for QB#2 on the Bills.   That means he is bad, bad. because EJ is very un-special.    Whaley knows all of this.

Whaley said publicly on many occasions that Jones wasn't ready and if that were the case we probably would have seen him start over EJ in the season finale.

I wouldn't read too much into Cardale being the 3 last year. He was a project QB that the Bills did not want to play last year.

If he is obviously better than EJ, then he still would have been made #2.   They would have been naming him to the roster as backup and not dressing EJ.  

 

(especially while they were still in the playoff hunt)

Yep, I think that if you asked anyone within the Bills organization "who is more likely to be a franchise caliber QB EJ or Cardale" the overwhelming majority would say Cardale. They just didn't want to throw him into the fire if they didn't have to. I bet that if TT would have went out for a month or so we would have saw Cardale playing.
