Marrone wasn’t the only one to quit after a surprisingly solid year for the Bills, quarterback Kyle Orton decided to retire in order to spend more time with his family so now Buffalo has a new head coach, but no QB to lead the offense. Do they roll the dice with EJ Manuel and possibly waste an excellent defense with a young QB who will be learning on the job?
They should call up the Chicago Bears as soon as possible since rumors out of Chicago are that Jay Cutler is all but finished in the Windy City and that his time is up there.
Ryan was saddled with Mark Sanchez, Geno Smith, and Michael Vick during his tenure in New York. Cutler would give him the best QB he has ever had to work with. Cutler would be an upgrade over Orton, much less Manuel. Cutler had a horrible defense this past season with the Bears (they allowed 27.6 points per game, 31st in the NFL) and was forced to win shootouts in order to win a game. Buffalo had the fourth best scoring defense in the league (allowing just 18.1ppg) and Cutler wouldn’t have to try and do too much, he’s never had a defense as good as the current Bills unit. Ever.
Cutler would also have some very nice weapons on offense to play around with in wide receivers Sammy Watkins (65 catches, 15.1 yards per catch, 14 plays of at least 20 yards, and six touchdowns) and Robert Woods (65 ctaches, 11 plays of at least 20 yards, and five TD’s), and tight end Scott Chandler.
The running game is good when healthy, but may need a change since CJ Spiller and Fred Jackson both were injury prone this past season and seem to be constantly battling assorted injuries.
Ryan had too many QB issues during his time with the Jets to go into his first season with an untested QB or question marks at the position. He needs to tell management to do whatever it takes to get a QB, specifically Cutler since he seems to be available.
Make it happen!!!
