Now that's what great quarterbacking looks like. For Bills fans who call our show and say the Bills should stay with Tyrod Taylor because "who else is out there" or "he's the best we've had here during the drought", I hope you watched the Green Bay-Dallas playoff game.
It isn't about having a quarterback who can manage a game while the Bills find a way to get a wild card berth. The Bills lone goal should be to win a Super Bowl and you have to do much better at quarterback than what the Bills have.
Watching Aaron Rodgers was the highlight of the weekend. His command of the offense, his poise under pressure, and his chance taking all stood out. Now I know its unfair to compare Taylor to a quarterback who could be in the Hall of Fame someday so how about the other guy in the game?
If you had no idea who Dak Prescott was, you might think he's a veteran quarterback who has had multiple playoff berths in a long, successful career. As a rookie, Prescott has been revelation and he is NOT a manage the game quarterback. He also plays for a team that has an incredibly talented running back but Prescott makes plays and won games this season with his arm.
It didn't work out against Green Bay but it wasn't Prescott's fault. He brought the Cowboys back from a 15 point deficit in the fourth quarter.
After watching Rodgers take his team downfield for a go ahead field goal, Prescott and the Cowboys offense was sitting at their own 25 yard line with 93 seconds to play. Prescott completed a 24 yard pass over the middle to start the drive and was 3-4 for 42 yards as Dallas moved into position for a game tying field goal.
Even though their team lost, Cowboys fans should feel great about the future because of the first year performance from Prescott.
Houston made the playoffs but they're going nowhere until they find a real quarterback. Kansas City made the playoffs but the Chiefs aren't a legitimate super bowl threat with Alex Smith.
The Bills could make the playoffs with Tyrod Taylor but there's only so far Taylor can take you. Hopefully the Bills know that and have that in mind as they formulate their off season game plan.
