Not that it’s a huge upset, but after some early struggles, Vince Young seems to be pulling away with the Bills backup quarterback job.
Young was 8-of-14 for 123 yards against the Vikings, leading a touchdown drive built on a deep pass to T.J. Graham.
“You’d have to say Vince came out a little bit ahead tonight,” Bills coach Chan Gailey said, via Tim Graham of the Buffalo News.
Thigpen was 8-of-15 for 56 yards, with an interception for a pick six by Vikings linebacker Audie Cole which was reminsicent of a bad one in the opener.
“Tyler had done good, too, until he threw the interception,” Gailey said. “The last two throws he had were not good, but up until then he played pretty well.”
The Bills only have a spot for one of them, since Brad Smith will hang around to run Wildcat plays. Smith allowed Cole the opportunity at a banner night, throwing another interception which was returned for a touchdown, one play after Cole’s first one.
What the Bills should is just pray neither of them have to see the field.
And maybe try to swing a trade for Cole, and play him at wide receiver.
