Sorry but the book has been out for a while in terms of stopping Gailey's offense, this is a primary reason I'm very concerned based on what I've seen in preseason so far.
I agree. Post 23
I agree, get Young the reps. Even though he will get mostly an entire game against Detroit

So let me get this straight.....some of you think Young is to be criticized for not picking up the playbook fast enough? For heaven's sake, Thigpen has been working with Chan for YEARS in Kansas City and now Buffalo, so if knowing the playbook is the criteria, I guess I will take the better athlete on this one!
If Thigpen gets cut, he signs with Miami......

You can't release Thigpen until after the pre-season is over, one you give him a chance to come back, but two and most importantly, you cut him Monday he is in Jets, Miami, or NE's camp on Tuesday playbook in hand.
You cut a player when it is most strategically advantageous for you to do so. End of camp is when you cut a QB.
It will come! I think it should come before the steelers game but we will know for sure after the steelers game. VY does not have Harvard like intelligence but he does have the athletisim. It's nice to have a QB with both but we don't have one of those. I like Fitz and think Gailey has done a nice job fitting the scheme to match his strengths(wish we could run more though). Gailey will have to do the same with VY. Orchestrate the offense to exploit his strengths.
What happens if Thigpen comes in this week and throws 12/14 80 yards 1 TD and Vy comes in and throws 6/14 50 yards and an INT? Young may be ahead now but he is ahead because of 1 single pass.
Release Brad Smith, and see if Thigpen is willing to take a significant pay cut to stay on the team as the #3 qb... God forbid, Fitz goes down on IR, and then say Vince gets the nod but looks about as good as he did in Philly, it'd be nice to have a QB who atleast is familiar with the offense and our HC as the 3rd option.
i have a weird unrivaled hatred for tyler thigpen that i can not explain.. i just hate him for wasting away a position that could be in use by a young qb being groomed to be a starter behind Vince young athleticism and ryan fitzpatrick brains.bring back aaron corp or any young qb that seems to have alittle higher ceiling then horrible pigpen -.-

A new era of hope begins. Go Bills
Maybe the Bills will keep him on for some half time entertainment. Have people chuck footballs at his head. =/
