The Bills say they believe Ryan Fitzpatrick is a quality starting quarterback. They’ve showed it during the NFL Draft.
Given a chance to take a quarterback at No. 3 overall, they passed overall for Marcell Dareus. (Wise move.) Given their choice of second round options at quarterback (Ryan Mallett, Andy Dalton, and Colin Kaepernick), they passed once again.
Time will tell if the Bills’ faith in Fitzgerald and their distaste for this quarterback class was misplaced or not. Barring a big free agent move or trade, which is very unlikely, the 2011 Bills will live or die with Ryan Fitzpatrick.
