As a TT supporter
 
It does not directly fall on tyrod tayler....but at some point you have to ask a starting qb to take a team and put them on their back for a much needed win.
 
If that qb cannot do that?  Then you need to continue your qb search......
 
Now.....tyrod has had a opportunity to do that one time this year and was actually on his way to doing it when zay dropped that pass....we really should be undefeated right now


Of course. I'm not saying we don't need a better QB. I'm fully on board with drafting one. I just think Taylor criticism is overboard when the team had bigger problems.

Taylor did carry this offense last week and he still gets criticized because he didn't get 300 yards for example.

The answer is:

It's quite possible.

Just depends if he

A) continues to do these things well

B) shows improvement in his weaknesses

C) he leads a team to the playoffs

 

Another plus is Taylor's bad games are never completely horrible. Compared to Dalton's first game or Carr vs Washington, TT's worst never hits rock bottom. Even during the Carolina debacle, he kept plugging away and was efficiently inefficient (or inefficiently efficient). Taylor never loses his poise or lets things spiral out of control. The problem? There are way too many of those inefficient games. That's where I see his objective this year : Pare down those games to a bare minimum per season, then you get a lot of Jets-Broncos games, with an occasional Miami. And that would be a pretty damn good quarterbacking.

The backup QB is the most important player on the team of a Super Bowl winner.

The backup quarterback is a fairly important position on any team. There ain't a lot of them. If one injury kills your whole season that makes the backup gig important by definition.

Good thing Flacco didn't get injured and instead threw 12 TD's to no picks in the playoffs.

His play in the postseason was arguably the most important reason they made it to and won the Super Bowl.

So what. That doesn't negate the fact backup QB is an important position. I and a lot of others here have been saying that for years.

There are degrees of importance. That was my point. Backup QB's who don't play are without a doubt the most important backups.

Just pointing out that there is no perfect stat when it comes to QBs. They all seem to have flaws and you can make numbers tell whatever story you want.

You're not going to find many, if any, stats that paint an accurate reflection with 1 data point...

I agree with this post.  And I think we should see how he does on this A, B, C list before we chuck him over the side.  If he leads this Bills team to the playoffs (big if), how do you move on from him lightly?  It has been 18 years now, and this was supposed to be a hopeless, tanking, evaluative year where we had no wideouts.  I never bought that, but I did think we would be 7-9 or 8-8.  Still might be, but if TT gets them in the dance he can't, IMHO, be dumped lightly.  If he looks bad from hear to the end and finishes 6-10, we know what we have to do.  But for a QB to emerge as a quality starter in his 3rd year (as a starter), is not really slow development and TT's last 6 games or so are pretty promising.
