After the Bills lost to the Steelers on Sunday afternoon, Bills coach Rex Ryan said “we’ll see” when he was asked if there was a chance that the team would make a quarterback change.
Ryan and company took the night before making their announcement on Monday. That announcement is that Tyrod Taylor will remain the team’s starter for their home game against the Browns.
Ryan said that he’s felt all season that Taylor gives the Bills their best chance to win games and that he still feels that way heading into Week 15.
Taylor has not been as effective this year as he was in his first year as Buffalo’s starter and the team ranks 31st in passing yards, although some of his difficulties could be attributed to injuries elsewhere on offense over the course of the season. Whatever the case, the Bills’ issues stopping the run are just one example of the other issues that have plagued the team this season.
The Bills will still have to make a decision about Taylor’s long-term future with the team once the season is over. Given the reports of Ryan’s possible departure, that call will likely not be the first thing on their to-do list when another disappointing year comes to an end in Buffalo.
