Training Camp Preview: Quarterbacks


It’s only a matter of time, the Bills drafted Josh Allen with the 7th overall pick to be the starting quarterback.

But will that be week one in Baltimore, or at some point during the season? Or will they stay patient and be overly cautious.

Bills fans will want to see what Allen can do sooner than later.  Even the team’s top playmaker is intrigued with Allen’s ability.

LeSean McCoy said, “I have to be honest, he’s pretty good. I’m not a big fan of rookies. The best rookie I’ve probably liked in my career has been Tre [White]. Tre’s really good. A lot of guys as rookies, they’re not like him. The quarterback is on that level: he’s good, he’s smart, [but] he has to learn of course.

” I  think Josh is a mature guy who’s handled his responsibilities the right way. He comes in everyday, works hard and proves [himself], listens to the veterans, listens to the coaches. If he makes a mistake one day, [he] works really hard trying to fix it the next day. [He] has the right attitude”, said Offensive Coordinator Brian Daboll.

Sean McDermott and Brandon Beane have made it clear all along that there will be an open competition at camp.  AJ McCarron and Nathan Peterman will get their opportunity to win the job. 

But if Allen doesn’t seem overwhelmed, he could end up the starter.  So when can we expect the Bills to pull the trigger on a QB decision?

Here’s what Head Coach Sean McDermott had to say about that, “There will be a time in training camp where we need to be decisive and be reminded of that for the betterment of the team in terms of, we need to build, as I mentioned before to Sal’s question about the continuity of our football team, just in terms of getting people playing with each other at the same- you know, with the ones, with the twos, with the threes, so there is a chemistry that’s so important that goes.”
