Schefter wrote today that last year the Eagles were asking for nor less than 2 first round picks, and he doesn't believe they will accept less this season. He thinks the Eagles will have both Vick and Kolb next season. I rather spend two first on moving up for Luck
They are f**king high if they think they will ever get that for Kolb.
Have you seen Fitzpatrick play? He's lit up even some of the top defenses of the league. Buffalo has their guy. They'll be addressing other areas than QB this year.
I wouldn't be so sure about that OTC:
3. Buffalo is going to be near the top of the draft, and Bills general manager Buddy Nix already is doing his due diligence. Nix flew to Northern California last week and spent a day at Stanford looking at quarterback Andrew Luck, who is likely to be the No. 1 pick if he turns pro after this season. Buffalo has been looking for a quarterback like Luck since Jim Kelly retired. The fact that Nix already is spending his time scouting quarterbacks up close and personal is an indication that, as good as Ryan Fitzpatrick has been this season, Buffalo knows it must upgrade at the most important position in sports. But just the Bills' luck: Their improved play might cost them their best chance at Luck.
But if they do draft Luck, I believe Fitz will start the season as Luck develops.
They may have themselves a Kolb-Vick kind of situation if that happens. The thing is, Fitzpatrick is so young, you have no idea how much farther the kid can fly.
Fitz has not only proven he can be dominant against top teams in this league, he's shown he can be come from behind in the clutch and make plays. He is playing the way all teams want a franchise QB to play.
I agree he'll be the starter no matter who they draft, but I wouldn't be happy about the team wasting a pick on Luck if they already have a franchise guy who should be good for possibly the next 10 years. There are other QB's likely to be available. If I were Buffalo, I'd let someone trade the farm for their pick.
Buffalo then would have a chance to move down and still land one of a bevy of other quarterbacks, which may include: Newton, Locker, Stanzi, Kaepernick, Ponder, Devlin, Mallet, and maybe even Pryor.
