Well, I hope you took my advice, because I was pretty god damn close on my predictions for Moulds and Evans.
Go Bills!

sweet sassy molassy that was awesome! Although it does make sense. Evans is the deep ball guy, moulds is the trusty old sure hands WR. Moulds will get more catches, evans will get less but for more yards.

I sat and waited too long and someone got moulds.

So do you think Holcomb will stay put as the starter and then Losman will get worked back in towards the end of the season?

I would think they would go with Holcombe for now.

Losman needs more time to develop and the Bills can still make a run with Holcombe.

Holcombe is inconsistant but is a much better option than Losman right now.

I have Evans and would like to be able to use him at some point this year.

Ya know...I think Buffalo just invested way too much in Losman for them to permanantly bench him like that. I think if and when Holcomb makes this offense stall, JP will get the nod again. I think all year long Buffalo will just go with the hot hand and whoever can make this offense click.



JP is definately the long term guy, but he just isnt NFL ready right now. He waits in the pocket a long time, at times he decides to scramble too early. And the thing that annoys me the most is he will wait in the pocket and throw into double coverage and someone else will be wide open. I think Buffalo should have kept Bledsoe around for 1 more year...
Go Bills!

Well, the passing game couldn't get much worse, so I guess it's an improvement by default. In JPs defense, I didn't think he was getting a ton of time in the pocket, but they really had to make the switch. Pass protection or not, 75 yards just doesn't cut it. I have high hopes for him in the future after we draft a couple of linemen, but Holcomb is the right guy for this year.

the bottom line is simple...

Holcomb can read the defense well and sustain a drive (especially in a low risk short passing game). He actually doesn't make many errors unless trying to constantly stretch the passing lanes.

advantage : McGahee, Moulds and Bills defense

Here is a CBS Sportsline story about this...
http://www.sportsline.com/nfl/story/8949963

My favorite line-
"We think it is an advantage as a team, when you have two different types of quarterbacks, to play it out as long as we can," Mularkey said. "I think it's an advantage regardless of what other people think."


I would have to say the advantage goes to opposing defenses...

Too funny!

Two different types of QB? One who is ready to play and one who isn't? Are those the types he's talking about? Unless he has a "play JP until the defense gets overconfident plan" I don't buy it.
