    As a Bills fan I am keeping a close eye on the moves we make at the quarterback position. With Orton retiring and a new coaching staff in place Manuel will get a clean slate, but he will also be in an open competition for the job in 2015.

    I can see the Bills having a 3 quarterback competition with Manuel, a FA signing and a QB from the draft. I hope we avoid the hype around Sanchez's resurgence in Philly and don't sign him. Not only will he command more dollars than the other FA QBs (probably around 8 million a year) I just don't think his arm can make the throws in Buffalo with all the wind and cold in November, December and hopefully January.

    My pick would be Locker. The injuries scare me but he hasn't had anything that would hinder his arm strength or his mobility. Still young and in his limited time he has shown me enough that makes me want the Bills to take a chance. Also could be had for a prove it type contract (1 or 2 years around 5 mill per).

    In the draft without a 1 we are not in a position to make a move for Winston or Mariotta. The two guys I liked the most in the Senior Bowl are Mannion from Oregon State and Grayson from Colorado State. Neither guy excels at any one aspect of the game, but I see a good enough combination of attributes that makes me think that either could work. Still early in the process but neither guy will go in the 1st because they don't excel in any one aspect, so I'm thinking either one can be had anywhere from the 2nd-4th rounds of the draft.

    I would just like to know how many hate-filled, overly-aggressive, and ignorant texts Mario Williams has received from his new teammate, Richie Incognito.

    Woah. Blockbuster.

    Shady is screwed going from the Eagles elite O-Line to the Bills mediocre O-Line. Great move for Philly. Kiko is an elite player at a much more important position.
