    Re: Nix: “Time’s now” to trade up for a QB

    to be fair, our line had levitre and wood and playing in their proper position during year 1 of gailey. the journeymen we kept getting were doing ok. i don't remember watching a guy have a terrible terrible game on the OL in a long time. mistakes here and there, but they don't take many bad penalties and they are ok.

    the time was last year, when there were 2 can't miss qb's to make the jump.

    RGIII would have looked amazing in buffalo.

    "Thanks for printing the article on the Kentucky Labor Cabinet employees shoveling snow (“Office workers to shovel snow” Nov. 22). At first glance, I thought they were actually helping until I read the quote by Kentucky Association of State Employees President David Smith. He admits he is 42 and should not be shoveling snow, nor should cabinet employees because they have not been properly trained.

    You need to be ‘trained’ to shovel snow? Really?

    Trained to do what...scoop, dump, repeat? It is this mentality that explains what is wrong in Frankfort. Perhaps Smith wants the government to hire $30 per hour “snow shovel technicians” so he can take a cut of their

    The Bills were in no position to draft Luck or Griffin last year, so what is your point? Who knows, there could be a Dalton or Kaepernick in this draft.

    Watched Dalton and Kaepernick the last few games?

    Point is exactly as you say, you have to be in the right spot at the right time.

    just what we need.... a bunch of bumbling fools quick to pull the trigger on a bum for the upcoming draft when they passed on numerous QBs in past drafts. who will be our JP Lossman for next year?

    We didn't have a crappy line in each of the last 2 seasons until guys went out with injuries. The OL hasn't been a problem since Urbik & Pears were picked up in 2010. So Buddy has no excuse for Dalton, Kaepernick, Wilson or even Foles & Cousins. Instead Buddy is shouting from the rooftops that he's ready to draft a QB after eschewing a QB in 2 rich QB drafts & plunging into what might be the thinnest QB pool in the last 3 years. One things for sure, when Buddy said he wasn't the brightest guy in the room, he wasn't kidding.

    Build the lines, and the defense first, then get the QB when you can. I have zero issue with the approach.

    Funny how everybody this season is now talking about Kaepernick and Wilson, and nobody is all over Cam Newton's nutsack anymore.

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.

    Re: Nix: “Time’s now” to trade up for a QB

    The time to trade up was last year. Of course the last time we traded up we wound up with JP Losman who set the franchise back many years. I don't have much faith that Buddy will get it right.

    After the listening to the interview I came away thinking theyre going QB WR with their first two selections. Sounds like they want Steve in the slot.

    If he had actually successfully built a defense or his handpicked coach had emphasized the running game like he should, I might agree with you.

    Funny how everybody this season is now talking about Kaepernick and Wilson, and nobody is all over Cam Newton's nutsack anymore.
    Have you been following Carolina? Cam had a rough start to the season but he has been on fire since Halloween. His running game and defense have utterly collapsed, but he's accounted for 15 TDs and 2 turnovers in 6 games.

    He knows he fcuked up the QB position with Fitz and may now overpick a QB while passing on a better player in Round 1. If Te'o is sitting there and we pass him up, I'll scream.

    To add to what a number of others said, I think a number of us were also interested to see if Fitz could take his play to the next level behind a really good O-line. Now we know.
    Still searching for that offensive rhythm.

    He's acquired the talent that could accomplish both, his footsoldiers have failed miserably.
