    The NFL is transitioning into a bit of an Spread Option league, something Losman was well suited for. Fast on his feet, good at throwing on the move, great deep ball to keep the defense spread out. Would he have been better in today's NFL that wouldn't ask him to be a pocket passer but instead have him moving around and utilize his feet in the run game, and create mismatches for the defense?

    Nope.
    I may not go to church, but I pay for my sins by being a Buffalo Bills fan.

    no j.p had a comp% of under 60% in college its pretty much a guarantee that a QB wont succeed in the NFL and what a surprise he didn't and he still wouldn't

    Not at all. Losman had a cannon and decent mobility, but never had the brainpower to quickly process and read defenses, go through progressions, etc.

    Which wouldn't be an issue as the spread option is generally a one or two quick read offense.... It would be more tailored to his strengths.

    No. He's just a bad QB.

    You have to be quick between the ears as well which he was not. I've never seen a more lost QB in my life. He'd throw alot of picks like Fitz did to Cromartie in week one.

    He would have done better had he gone to a well coached team with a real QB as a mentor and watched for 4 years.

    We ruined him, is that a shock.

    i watched a preseason game this year where he threw for something like 450 yds and 2-3 TDs. not that that means anything seeing as its preseason.

    cautiously optimistic about the 2013 season. lets go buffalo!!!

    Yes, but he would have needed everything Daryl mentioned as well.

    Losman probably would have been much better than he was if he was just allowed to be the type of QB that he was, which definitly was a "stand tall in the pocket" QB, he had too many bad and older "old school" coaches to succeed. He did have short game accuracy issues so likely it wouldn't have mattered in the end.

    We need to sign Kelly Holcomb. One year starter who can hold it down for a year so the rookie can learn

    he would succeed in todays game only behind a good o-line which he never had when he was here. i would take him in a flash over captain checkdown or pickspatrick !

    He also moved really poorly in the pocket...he always ran backwards in a loop.

    Of course he would. Imagine if he went to a team with a real coach.
    When will the Bills find the heir to Losman?

    if he had to sit and watch on the sidlines for 4 years he didn't belong in this league to begin with.

    Probably not, but to play devil's advocate, Losman's passer rating out of the shotgun in his time with Buffalo was over 100.
