This has got to be the ugliest crop of passers on one team that we have ever laid our eyes on.
In terms of confidence, leadership, arm strength, and moxie, the Bills would come dead-last in a quarterback power rankings list if one was written today.
Sure, much of their struggle in 2009 came due to firing their offensive coordinator right before the season started, but the guy behind center also had a lot to do with it.
Trent Edwards doesn't have a good deep ball, and it seems like he surely knows it. He tried just two passes past 40 yards last season.
While that is discouraging, there is no ignoring his great mental make-up and potentially lulling-you-to-sleep deadly accuracy.
However, if he wants the job, he needs to open things up and utilize Lee Evans and his other deep threats.
Brian Brohm has vaulted himself to the second spot in this competition, probably just because he used to be a second-round pick.
This is the guy the Bills would love to see succeed, as he would have been a major steal, and because the guy does have the talent. The problem is, he's been shaken throughout his short career, and he has zero confidence or swagger.
Ryan Fitzpatrick is easily better than Brohm at this point and actually played quite well in spurts for Buffalo in 2009. The offense performed best when he was under center.
Regardless of each passer's lifeless career resumes, it's safe to say it will be a boring competition, and none of these guys will be considered a strong fantasy football option in 2010.
My money is on Edwards to win it if it's out of this group. Then again, I'm still sticking by my prediction that the Bills trade for Michael Vick.
