02:01 PM ET 11.09 | Last week, Buffalo Bills general manager Buddy Nix said in his weekly radio segment on WGR 550 in Buffalo that he would like to obtain a franchise quarterback before retiring his current post. He also alluded to the fact that Ryan Fitzpatrick was not that guy. This morning, Nix reiterated those comments and took it a step further. "Let me be as honest as I can," Nix said Friday morning when asked how long he could afford to wait. "I think we really need to address it this year. The thing we can't do is you can't create one. You can't go out thinking I've got to make this guy a player. If you do then you're going to be in a bigger mess. We don't want to do that. We try to guard against that. But we do need another one and we need to do it this time." Nix went on to suggest that the team would consider trading picks to move around in the draft, if need be.

The way the Bills are playing they won't have to trade up to get a high pick.

I really can't think of any franchise Quarterbacks available at the moment... maybe check at the local Quarterbacks R Us store

They should take some lessons from the Chiefs about how to suck.

It does seem pretty thin this year. And the guy acknowledges that you can't force these things to happen. The only thing I can figure is that they have a real good feeling about Matt Barkley.

Oh wait a minute, this is the Bills we're talking about. Obviously they're on the Geno Smith bandwagon, ready to anoint him as the GOAT and hand him the keys to the city.

We rarely get to see the bills being in the central time zone so I've only see Fizpatrick a couple times and was not impressed either time.
