Bills | Tarvaris Jackson to remain No. 3 QB

Wed, 03 Oct 2012 08:45:22 -0700

Buffalo Bills QB Tarvaris Jackson is expected to remain third on the depth chart the rest of this season. Head coach Chan Gailey does not envision Jackson challenging backup QB Tyler Thigpen. "It would be very tough for Tarvaris to challenge for that spot this year because of limited reps (in practice)," Gailey said. "Fitz takes almost every rep we have on offense during the course of the week. The backup gets very few reps through the course of practice. So it's hard for him to get the reps necessary to make a viable charge at this point for that position."

Bills | No. 2 QB still undecided

Sat, 21 Jul 2012 08:06:13 -0700

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey remained coy regarding the battle for the team's No. 2 quarterback job, only saying QBs Tyler Thigpen and Vince Young will battle it out during training camp and the preseason. "I think it's going to be a good competition," Gailey said. "Tyler has the advantage of being here and being in the system. Vince has the advantage of playing in games and the experience. Vince has more experience than Tyler. Tyler has more experience in this offense than Vince. So there's a trade-off there. It depends on who ends up doing the best job during the course of the entire preseason."

Buffalo Bills head coach Chan Gailey said QB Vince Young is having trouble picking up the nuances of the offense because Gailey has added things to the playbook each of the last two seasons. "It would not have been as hard two years ago, but we are in so much more of an advanced stage now than we were two years ago. He is trying to learn what the base concepts are and how we have advanced to where we are today without the benefit of going through the baby steps," Gailey said. Gainey indicated QB Tyler Thigpen may have an advantage over Young because of he has been in the offense longer.
