    Dukie. I guess O'Brien still is looking at the wrong test scores in making his QB picks.

    must mean OBrien isn't comfortable with Savage in the back up role.

    Back to Fitzpatrick.. did i mention he's a Harvard guy?

    If you wanted Teddy Bridgewater _ Thad is the next best thing. He was decent with the few starts he had.

    This means Savage is no where near being ready.

    If he starts him over Fitz, that will really be something. Surely not.

    The "next best thing" to Teddy Bridgewater is a street free agent?

    It's always a good strategy to build your franchise around Buffalo's scraps.

    It worked for Baltimore... They won a super bowl with our scraps.

    Because if Savage was ready they probably wouldn't have brought in Thad.

    I think we signed him to be our 3rd QB. Personally I would have started Lechler.
