Willis is the most affected person in this move.
They already did, and its tough to strictly play the run with Moulds and Evans on the outsides, no matter who is throwing to them. I had McGahee at 3, nipping at the heels of Alexander for the 2nd spot, he probably drops behind Edge and Priest now.

I know this is a little off topic, but I think that moving to Dallas might be good for Bledsoe. If the Boys O-line could keep Vinnie alive, they might do the same for Drew. He still has a good year or two left under the right circumstances. And Tuna doesn't seem to put his QBs in bad positions too often. If I liked the Cowgirls, I'd like this move. Hensen needs more time, he's been away too long and played too little.
As for the Bills, I would worry about what this does to Evans. Is Losman going to have the patience to throw the deep ball that seems to be Evans forte'? Do the Bills dump Bledsoe and pick up a Kitna or Mrs Warner's husband? Are we reaching for something to keep interested in?
And whatchu talkin' about Willis value dropping? Was Bledsoe that much of a threat? His value could increase. He is a great pass reciever and will soon be a fav dump off of Losman, should that come to pass.
I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Well, JP Losman is a bit worrying for many because he's had the reputation of being a bit of a cocky headcase. He also isn't the "smart" quarterback who's really good at making reads and threading the needle...like a Leftwich or Brady. Many think he'll take longer to mature than other young quarterbacks. The lovely thing with Buffalo is that they love running the ball in the red zone. They're so committed. Other teams may PA fake here or there (well, more than a sprinkle here or there), but Buffalo'll pound the rock. Those touchdowns are music to McGahee owners' ears. Back to the subject, if it was a worse QB, some may be happy because that means less TDs for the QB and more for McGahee (that's a bit of a positive although it doesn't offset a less effective offense). However, since Buffalo is a run first by a lot team in the red zone, it looks like Losman's ascension to starting QB will have no good implications for Willis at all.
How much would Bledsoe cost for Dallas? A 2nd round pick? I don't think Dallas is ready to compete at all, as hard as the truth may be for Parcells to take. The good year they had seems like a fluke now. They just don't have enough talent. T-New didn't develop too well this year, either, after a solid rookie campaign. I think they need to continue bringing in young talent. This may be a bit of a waste for Parcells' coaching ability, but that's the truth with where the team is now. He seems to hate developing players...one of those guys who wants to put the best players on the field, even if they're old and over the hill with no future good coming out of it, only very small immediate gains.

Seems more like losman will pull a Carson Palmer (though less spectacular) struggle mightily in the beginning but begin to develop by midseason.
I too am worried more about Evan's value dropping, but it might be a plus for Moulds as he is the more intermediate and short route guy who could appeal to losman.
