    The Bills need a quarterback to back up Josh Allen in 2024

    Buffalo Bills need a QB to back up Josh Allen in 2024- Some options

    The free agent QB market is filled with veterans who would fit well behind a QB who never misses games, guys like Sam Darnold, Jacoby Brissett, Tyler Huntley, Carson Wentz, Gardner Minschew, Jake Browning, Tyrod Taylor and Marcus Mariota. But the salary range for them would likely land between $1.5 million and $5 million on a one-year deal.

    We’ve had absolute skid row bums as backup QBs during Allen’s entire career. We’ve been lucky so far with his durability but I’d rather not press our luck any longer and finally get a capable backup.

    Browning, Mariotta or Minshew off that list would work nicely.

    Agreed .... if we could have any one of those 3 who would be your choice?

    I like those guys in the order I listed.

    Browning played extremely well. Mariotta has legs. Minshew is a better Fitzpatrick.

    meh. If Josh goes down for more than 3 games, we're screwed no matter who the backup is.

    I thought in your world that even with a healthy Josh Allen we’re already screwed and the window is sealed shut.

    How do we get more screwed than a sealed shut window?

    Uhhhh are you seriously asking that? If Josh goes down for an extended period of time, we're looking at a 4 win season vs hovering around .500.

    more than 3 is 4 ..... no way that spells the end with a backup such as Browning.

    With Kyle Allen maybe. With a competent backup we’d win 10. The team is good despite your protestations.

    Also you must have a different definition of screwed than I do?

    You don’t think we have a chance at a ring…that’s the definition of screwed to me.

    now you moved the goalposts ..... you said more than 3 games ..... stick to what you post.

    4 games is more than 3.

    you're a devout pessimist.

    entertainment purposes only.

    nobody in real life is that big a pessimist ..... maybe a closet Browns fan.

    Last years Bills were WR deficient hidden in Josh’s shadow.

    no back up was winning with that group, a new OC and a brittle D

    no contending team can have their starter out for 7 or more games ..... 3 or 4 now that's different altogether ..... 17 game schedule keeps you alive .... 14 teams make the playoffs.

    My definition of a good backup is a guy who can go 4-4 if your QB is out two months. Playoffs are absolutely still in play under that scenario. Cleveland had a better record than us this year under an even worse scenario.
