Conflicting Signals Over Tyrod Taylor

The Bills are sending conflicting signals over the future of Tyrod Taylor.  Senior management, including Doug Whaley and Russ Brandon, reportedly want to part company with the overpriced quarterback.  New head coach Sean McDermott, said to be the “One Voice” of the Bills, together with his coaching staff, are unsure they can find a viable replacement.  McDermott, speaking to the press at the NFL Combine, stressed he and Whaley are off to a great start together.  ONCE AGAIN THE BILLS ARE DIVIDED.  THE CONFLICTS CONTINUE TO PLAGUE THE DYSFUNCTIONAL ORGANIZATION.  HOPING FOR RESOLUTION, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

There are several NFL teams reportedly interested in Tyrod Taylor.  With March 11th fast approaching, the Bills have yet to announce their intentions.  Should Buffalo release Taylor, he will become a free agent.  The Jets, Browns, and 49ers are said to be potential suitors.  TAYLOR FAILED TO MEET EXPECTATIONS WITH THE BILLS AND SHOULD MOVE ON.  THE TEAM AGAIN MISSED THE PLAYOFFS IN EACH OF HIS 2 YEARS HERE.  LOOKING TO QUARTERBACK SOLUTIONS THROUGH THE DRAFT AND FREE AGENCY, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

Former head coach Doug Marrone regrets leaving the Bills.  Speaking at the NFL combine he said he has made peace with owner Terry Pegula.  He also had praise for late owner Ralph Wilson and his wife Mary.  Marrone has moved on to become head coach of the Jaguars.  Several of his assistants from Buffalo and Syracuse have joined the Jacksonville staff.  MARRONE’S DEPARTURE WAS INDICATIVE OF THE TURMOIL IN THE BILLS ORGANIZATION.  HE CLEARLY FELT THAT STAYING IN BUFFALO WAS NOT IN HIS LONG-TERM INTERESTS.  HOPEFUL THAT SUCH CONFLICT WILL SOON BE BEHIND US, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

The decision on whether to keep Tyrod Taylor is fast approaching.  The Bills have until March 11th to pick up his option.  Taylor would then be due $16 million which is ridiculous for a mediocre quarterback.  Buffalo should look to the draft and free agency to fix its quarterback problem.  Taylor is clearly not the way to go.  THE BILLS SHOULD ALSO JETTISON FUMBLING GENERAL MANAGER DOUG WHALEY.  THE PEGULAS HAVE THEIR BLINDERS ON CONCERNING HIS BLUNDERS.  HOPING THEY SEE THE LIGHT, WE REMAIN 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are noncommittal on whether to build a new stadium.  Owners Terry and Kim Pegula have not indicated their intentions for a venue to replace aging New Era Field.  They are likely to wait until the existing stadium lease is about to expire.  A new arena downtown would showcase the resurgent canalside development.  It would be a source of civic pride and regional identity.  HERE’S HOPING THE PEGULAS WILL SUPPORT A NEW STADIUM.  LOOKING TO THEM FOR LEADERSHIP, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are a team in disarray.  The revolving door of coaches, coordinators, and quarterbacks has taken its toll.  There is no clear direction from the front office.  No strategy for resolving the quarterback crisis.  Buffalo fans deserve more.  THE FAITHFUL HAVE SUPPORTED THE TEAM THROUGH A 17 YEAR PLAYOFF DROUGHT.  OWNERS TERRY AND KIM PEGULA NEED TO EXHIBIT LEADERSHIP AND PROTECT THEIR INVESTMENT.  WITH HOPE FOR A TURNAROUND, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

The Bills have named Derek Boyko the new vice president of communications.  He previously spent 17 years as public relations chief with Philadelphia.  The Kenmore native is a graduate of Canisius College.  Boyko’s appointment comes at a critical time for the Bills.  External communications are in disarray and dysfunction is rampant.  BOYKO WILL NEED TO RESTORE CREDIBILITY TO BILLS P.R.  HOPEFUL THAT HE IS UP TO THE TASK, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

The Bills should use their 10th overall pick to take a quarterback in the draft.  They would be building for the future while looking for a veteran in free agency.  Tyrod Taylor has disappointed in his 2 years in Buffalo and must be canned.  His overly rich contract must be jettisoned – another blunder of the Doug Whaley regime.  A FIRST ROUND QUARTERBACK IS THE LONG-TERM SOLUTION.  THE BILLS MUST RESET FROM THE GROUND UP.  GOING WITH YOUTH AS THE TEAM REBUILDS, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

Tyrod Taylor has received medical clearance from the Bills physicians.  This enables the team to release him prior to March 11th without guaranteeing $27.5 million that would be due under his contract.  Buffalo can now either attempt to restructure his contract or part company with Taylor.  He has been a major disappointment in his 2 years with the Bills.  General manager Doug Whaley ineptly signed him to a 6 year, $92 million deal.  BOTH TAYLOR AND WHALEY SHOULD BE SHOWN THE EXITS.  THE BILLS WILL BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT THEM.  HOPING THAT PEGULA COMES TO HIS SENSES, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.

The Bills are likely to release Tyrod Taylor.  The day of reckoning is fast approaching on March 11th.  Buffalo either pays him ridiculous guaranteed money or he is history.  Taylor has been a bust on the field.  The Bills front office once again stumbled in structuring his overly generous contract.  THE TEAM WILL BE BETTER OFF WITH TAYLOR GONE.  THE BILLS CAN LOOK TO FREE AGENCY FOR A STOP GAP QUARTERBACK AND TO THE DRAFT FOR A LONG TERM SOLUTION.  HOPEFUL THAT MANAGEMENT WILL DO THE RIGHT THING, WE ARE ALL 1BUFFALO.
