    IF the guy had an arm, he would be one of the best QBs in the league. Its so sad that he excells at everything accept arm strength/accuracy.

    you know, some of those head scratchers are WR running the wrong route, right?

    yup, and if you watch brady, brees, rothlesburger, or manning play, they all make their share or head scratching throws every game

    (and now que the infantile you're comparing fitz to hof QB remarks)


    remember this is a fanbase that was up in arms because the bills didn't draft Quinn, Clausen,mallett or GAbbert, and were upset the bills didn't sing mcnabb or vick

    ha ha, I wasn't upset about any of those...
    I've been a big Fitz supporter and think he does a lot well. But consistency is his bugaboo.

    Whether we fans like it or not I think the reality with Fitz is that Buddy will draft a QB high next year, but Fitz will still be the starter.

    yea, i dont' think the guy is perfect, but replacing him with a better QB is going to be a lot harder than the people who hate him think.

    I guess people just want to believe the Bills are 1 QB away from being in the Super Bowl. They also seem to want the QB to throw 400 yards and 4 TDs every game with a couple of 90 yard TD throws mixed in every game or so. Oh, and as mentioned above, they are terrible at evaluating QBs based on who they cry for the bills to bring in

    It is hard to explain things to you when you when you jump off the deep end with this ridiculous thought. People just want a QB that can be consistent.

    Apart from Big Ben very few QBs ever throw blocks. At most they try to stand in someone's way or just hand the ball off and become a spectator.

    No, they all do not do it. Once again blind Fitz haters need to open their eyes. Fitz it FAR from the worst QB in the NFL. If you believe he is then you're just not paying attention.

    Maybe that is why Fitz can't throw down field he hurt his shoulder blocking a long time ago.

    You know minus the hof numbers, there was another qb that played here that more like a lb'er than qb mentality wise...Just sayin...

    It's funny, if Fitz was in the Brady/Manning class, everyone would be mad he is out there throwing numerous blocks, albeit, very good blocks, because you wouldn't want a true franchise guy consistently putting himself in harms way.

    But because Fitz is, well Fitz, everybody loves it.

    CJ brought this up on the Dan Patrick show - he mentioned how he is willing to throw blocks like no other QB in the league. I think Luck has that mentality as well but I think their coaches protect him from himself and has told him to not do it.

    Fitz is good enough to win but it has to be the Trent Dilfer, Jeff Hostetler model with a great D and a good running game - our D was good this game but has been miserable most of the year and our running game is great but certainly under-utilized. Why we go empty backfield on 3 and 1 with this O-line and our RBs is beyond me - but we did it twice in the game and it cost us TDs

    So what you are saying is Fitz needs a defense that is the best in league history to win?
