08:02 AM ET 08.27 | Tarvaris Jackson's gain is likely to wind up as Vince Young's loss. It appears the Buffalo Bills have made a choice in their summer competition for the No. 2 quarterback job: none of the above. A day after watching [Young] struggle against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Bills acted quickly to negotiate with the Seattle Seahawks to acquire Tarvaris Jackson. ... Young may have played his way out of a job by throwing two interceptions in the 38-7 loss to Pittsburgh Saturday night. Young struggled to look efficient in Gailey's spread attack throughout training camp. The same can be said for Bills reserve quarterback Tyler Thigpen, whose accuracy troubles have been a concern during camp. Thigpen did not see any action in Saturday's game.

They better hope to be in a lot of low scoring games.

Just traded to get Tavaris Jackson. They've given up.

Buffalo is obviously hoping Fitzpatrick doesn't get hurt.

So the athlete who played QB and was wildly successful in college despite his bad throwing mechanics didn't pan out in the pros? Has anyone notified the Jets yet?

If only Jon Gruden were still coaching, all these QBs would have a place to go to. On a brighter note, VY has made over $60 million playing in the NFL thus far.

Owes a couple of million to some company that specializes in leeching off of players during lockouts, via bad loans... Ole VY says he never took the loan... I'm willing to bet he's trying to put it off on the dude who was impersonating him all over the country last season.

He's broke and owes $1.9 million from a lockout loan.

I believe it's up to around $3 mill now, with interest.

Young's best play was the tackle that saved a TD,after he threw an interception...

August 27, 2012  08:59 AM ET

Not surprising someone was able to take advantage of VY and it's sad he'll get released because the only person who thought he could play QB in the NFL was Skip Bayless.

Poor Bills fans... The team is still stuck in neutral.

He's good at that... Like a point guard, always the first to get back on defense once he throws a pick.

Skip will just blame Jeff Fisher for this, saying he bad mouthed Vince to Buffalo coaches. He feels the games Tebow lost last year was because of the coaches.
