Apparently, the Bills are ready to move on without QB Trent Edwards. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Buffalo has placed Edwards on the trading block.

Coach Chan Gailey benched Edwards after a terrible first two games for the Bills, and Ryan Fitzpatrick will start today against the Patriots.

Apparently, this isn’t the first time Buffalo has talked about trading Edwards. Schefter writes the organization debated it during the offseason.

Buddy Nix, the Bills GM, is the one to blame here.

Bills to trade Edwards?

I'm not going to argue that Chan Gailey is the second coming of Vince Lombardi but how is the decision to trade Trent Edwards his fault?  Nearly every expert who makes a living analyzing pro football have remarked for the last couple of seasons that this team has no depth and very little 1st team talent.  For somebody who was supposedly the man responsible for drafting the players that turned the San Diego Chargers back into a Super Bowl contender during the 2000s under A.J. Smith, he hasn't shown squat since taking the reins in Orchard Park.

If there is one thing the Buffalo Bills have needed since the end of the Jim Kelly era, it's a franchise quarterback.  Even though there haven't been many Peyton Mannings or Tom Bradys available the last few years in the draft, the only QB the Bills drafted was Levi Brown out of Troy in the 7th round of the 2010 draft.  What in the world is that going to do for you?  I don't care how empty the cupboard is, he needed to go out and find a QB at almost any cost.  Everyone in the NFL had seen the Trent Edwards and Ryan Fitzpatrick show and given them both a thumbs down.  The fact that they didn't go after Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb, or Matt Leinart who were available for next to nothing and they passed on Josh Freeman in 2009 and Jimmy Claussen and Colt McCoy in 2010 tells me they have no real plan or any idea how to execute the rebuilding of a franchise.

Don't blame Chan Gailey for personnel decisions.  He has to play the cards he's dealt.  He's no Bill Parcells, Andy Reid, or Bill Belichick who calls the shots at finding and signing players.  Gailey is the perfect example of a guy who's been brought into a bad situation and is told to just go out and coach the 53 players he's got.

This makes no sense now. What kind of coach is Gailey? Lienhart was available, Kolb is out there, even Sage Rosenfels was, and NOOOO the Bills wait till now to figure out edwards is no better than a 2 or 3 QB. Wonder why you have not and will not sniff playoffs for another 5-10 years. This is funny!!!

I guess they are waiting for a spike in his trade value...right now he is worth a bag of footballs, but if a couple more qbs get hurt he may also be worth some tackling dummies
