The Buffalo Bills are one of the most intriguing teams in the National Football League right now.
It seems that all the Bills are lacking is that right person under center to take them to the playoffs for the first time in the 21st century. Buffalo have a very good defense and made significant improvements to their offense by acquiring LeSean McCoy, Charles Clay and Percy Harvin in the off-season.
The Bills have now confirmed that they don't really have a good enough quarterback to take them to the next level, much to the dismay of fans.
According to a report from Mike Rodak of ESPN.com, Bills general manager Doug Whaley has admitted that they don't have a good QB and will just have to do their best to try and get by without one this season.
"We don't have a marquee quarterback. Everybody knows that," Whaley said.
"But we have a championship defense and if we can build it inside out on the offensive line and run the ball, that was the recipe that took the Jets to two straight AFC championships when Rex [Ryan] got the job, the GM added."
Whaley's admission is notable after the amount of faith the organization showed in young EJ Manuel last offseason, when Whaley told reporters: "Our main focus is making sure EJ progresses."
Manuel, though, has been incredibly awful over his first two seasons, prompting the Bills to bring in Kyle Orton last year before they decided to trade for Matt Cassel at the beginning of this year.
Buffalo could be genuinely very good with even a decent quarterback under center. Still, with one of the league's most talented defensive lines and an attack littered with playmakers, the Bills will certainly play a part in what is bound to be a very competitive AFC East.
If the Bills did consider brining in a quarterback in this draft, they would have to pick from the second tier of consisting of Bryce Petty, Brett Hundley and Garrett Grayson.
