Who wants to ride on the wheel of starting quarterbacks? The Bills announced this morning that they'll go with former Baltimore backup Tyrod Taylor to start in Week 1. Taylor was a sixth-round pick of Baltimore in 2011. On one hand, Taylor provides an unknown upside that you don't get from Matt Cassel. On the other hand, Scott Kacsmar's article from last year about where teams find good starting quarterbacks (hint: not the sixth round, not since 2000). At least Taylor should provide enough rushing yardage to be an interesting fantasy football value.
And then in Washington, it looks like the Skins are going with Kirk Cousins over Robert Griffin. In fact, it looks like Griffin is now officially persona non grata. Or he's not. The reporting and counter-reporting has been predictably confusing. I always write that someday, someone will write a great Psychology Ph.D. study on what the Tampa Bay Bucs did to Josh Freeman. Maybe that same person will write about what happened to Robert Griffin afterwards. I know it's fun to bash the guy, but he was great in college and great as a rookie. He was great even from the pocket as a rookie. So many people to blame for that disintegration.
