But the coaches watch every practice and spend time in the meeting rooms and film rooms with these guys and decided that Young was the worst out of the bunch. I really don't know how else to put it. No one's signed him.
They knew they had to cut Vince Young. He was not worth paying. By cutting him they bailed out on his contract.
That left the Bills with only 2 QBs. And, Chan didn't seem to be in love with the idea of just having Thigpen, if Fitz got hurt. T-Jax was an insurance policy, plain and simple. For a 7th round pick.
The possible upside is *IF* T-Jax resigns with the Bills in the off season the Bills can drop Thigpen and pencil in T-Jax in as their #2. Getting a #2 QB for a 7th round pick is a win. Who is better, T-Jax or Levi Brown?

I am over VY but it baffles my mind why TJax has not received any reps or some reps. Why is all the time spent on Fitzpatrick or sometimes Thigpen? In the few tapes we see on the news all Fitz is doing is throwin to open WRs. After all this fruitless time does he need more reps? Keeping his limp arm in shape? Maybe if he threw less in practice he might get off a long one in a game. If OBD is trying to get a better draft pick at 6 rather than 7, they should look what they get at that pick as the previous picks in those rounds are now cutting grass somewhere. Only OBD can do these type of dumb moves and not ev en try to make them work. At 3-13 they will still screw up the picks.
VY out played Thig in preseason so I agree a bigger contract for a less talent guy makes no sence. I also agree its kind of fishy they get rid of a black QB for a black QB so quick.. TJax not playing at all not even as a backup is even more fishy since he was traded for. Its also fishy why they wouldn't just play him and if he doesn't do well we can pull him before he plays 6 games. I think this staff won't play him at all and will let him go to FA at the end of the season without even looking at him and that also is fishy. Why use the draft pick and not even take a look.? The season is over in most fans eyes because of the Fitz, games still need to be sold out. It isn't going to sell out with the Fitz in fact many season ticket holders I have talked to said they weren't even going if Fitz was still starting. I agree OP there is a lot of fishy stuff that could be going on. Thig is horrible but yet he is a better option then VY or TJax ? . Now the bad QB depth is biting Nix in the butt, he's the one that made this circus of backups and no options of the future let alone the 2012 season. Again no playoffs and season ticket holders screwed for buying another season everyone wants to lose for a better QB draft choice. As a season ticket holder It would be nice if they showed me they were still trying this season but with Fitz fail all it shows is the staff is set on losing out because we all know Fitz will be lucky to maybe get one more win and that's if Jacksonville continues to lay down. The chan era is now one of the worst ever to be a season ticket holder. Fitz is horrible just like the entire depth that Nix has given us. There better be a change at QB next season because I'm not buying another season of the Pits..oops Fitz
A new era of hope begins. Go Bills
