Doug Marrone will name Bills starting QB when one emerges
The Buffalo Bills have yet to decide on a starting quarterback and may not do so for a while. Bills head coach Doug Marrone told Chris Brown of Buffalobills.com he has yet to decide between free agent signee Kevin Kolb and rookie E.J. Manuel. From the team's official blog:
"As a coach the earlier it can get done the better," Marrone said. "I'd be a fool to sit here and say otherwise. The earlier the better, but again if you make decisions early and no one can see those decisions with the team then you wind up hurting your football team. So I'm hoping the decision and the timeline really relies on the players that are in competition and they have to separate themselves. And when you give people enough reps they will separate. At what point? I don't know."
In other words, Marrone isn't ready to name a starter until he sees how Kolb and Manuel perform in training camp. The Bills signed Kolb to a two-year deal in March and drafted Manuel with the 16th overall pick in the NFL Draft.
