Huh! All be damn! Maybe he could make a bigger impact in Detroit than Garcia.

We've been hearing rumors about this for weeks, looks like it's official.

I don't think Losman will struggle and if anything will be better than Bledsoe. I think this bumps the value of Moulds, Evans, and McGahee up a small notch.

I would bump down the fantasy value of any WR, TE or RB that Bledsoe ends up starting with, unless it's a team such as Dallas or Miami that already has an even worse QB situation.

Why do you think it increases the value of the Bills' offensive players?

Well Buffalo's bid for a playoff run this year was definitely not because of Bledsoe. If Losman works hard during the offseason and gains some experience in preseason and the start of the regular season.. he should be an upgrade. The Bills have a great supporting cast, and being my favourite AFC team.. I hope everything goes well for them. ;-D

I think Losman can become a very capable NFL starter, but there will likely be a lot of bumps along the way. I don't think Losman's promotion will mean elevated stats for any skill position players until he gets acclimated to the speed of the NFL. Ben Roethlisberger had one of the best rookie seasons by any NFL quarterback and I didn't see Hines Ward or Plaxico Burress have an upward spike in their stats. If anything, Ward and Burress' stats suffered even with Big Ben having a great rookie campaign.

In a couple years the Bills are gonna be a real force in the AFC. They have loads of young talent on offense(Losman, McGahee, Reed, Evans....) and the defense is solid with veteran leadership. They will make the playoffs this year, and I think the could make the Super Bowl the year after.

25th out of 33 in QB rating.
26th out of 33 in completion percentage.
18th of 37 in passing yards
22nd in interceptions per pass attempt.
26th in sacks.


Bledsoe must wear a size 7 shoe, because those aren't very big to fill.

Losman, McGahee, and this defense will be fine. Fantasy wise included.
