Beat: Bills' QB competition is "a dead issue"
Saturday, August 17, 2013, 1:35pm
Make whichever argument you'd like in favor of Kevin Kolb. "It was only his first game!" "He was going up against the first team of a good defense!" "He's just coming off an injury!" It really doesn't matter, because in the opinion of many (including your author) the competition to be the Week One starter for the Bills is now a dead issue. Kolb was indecisive, didn't take many chances down the field and missed many of his intermediate targets. His stats, 13-of-21 for 111 yards and an interception make it sound a little better than his day was, but Kolb did himself no favors. Couple that with E.J. Manuel's drive to begin the second half where he went 6-of-6 including a touchdown toss to Brad Smith, and the conclusion for many is consistent: the rookie needs to be named the starter this year. He's the best man for the job and has outperformed Kolb throughout training camp and now in an individual preseason game.
Stevie Johnson (hamstring) returns to practice

Bills WR Steve Johnson and Brad Smith returned to the practice setting from their hamstring injuries. Both Smith and Johnson participated in individual position drills and each got a couple of reps in 7-on-7.
The QB situation is not good in Buffalo, but Johnson still has WR3 value, especially in PPR formats.

“There are some times, honestly, where I feel like, ‘man, I’d want that home,’ but at the same time I’ve learned so much,” Smith said. “I’m tremendously blessed to be able to play this game. For a coach to say, ‘Brad, we need you to play receiver,’ and then trust me enough to go out there and do what we need to do to win, it means a lot. If a quarterback goes down, and they need me to go in, then I can do that too.”
The question is whether the sum of all the parts of Smith’s game is valued enough by new coach Doug Marrone to earn him a roster spot for an eighth NFL season.
