Chicago Bears should prepare for Terrelle Pryor
The Buffalo Bills may resort to giving Terrelle Pryor snaps at quarterback on Sunday
The Buffalo Bills quarterback situation is an absolute mess. After spending the offseason thinking A.J. McCarron and Nate Peterman was a good enough support system for rookie quarterback Josh Allen, the team scrambled to sign Derek Anderson to find any semblance of leadership in the room.
With a poor offensive line and limited skill players, Josh Allen wound up getting hurt. Not long after, Derek Anderson got injured as well.
Anderson started last week against the New England Patriots but took some big hits late into that game. He was examined for a concussion, and it does not sound like he is going to play on Sunday.
However, note how it says “expected.” The Bills have not officially announced who their starter is. Is it a coincidence that earlier in the day the team signed Terrelle Pryor, a wide receiver who once played quarterback?
Pryor won the Rose Bowl as a quarterback with Ohio State and entered the NFL as a quarterback. However, after getting a couple of starting chances, he changed positions to extend his career.
Would the Buffalo Bills resort to Pryor being a quarterback on Sunday? It was asked to head coach Sean McDermott, and it was not dismissed. Just saying.
Against the New England Patriots, the Buffalo Bills came out in the wildcat and got a couple of first downs. Then, they ran a reverse flea flicker. They have absolutely no personnel on offense right now.
The only way that they can beat teams is with deception. Putting Nate Peterman at quarterback gives us an outcome we have seen before. Terrelle Pryor is an ultimate x-factor.
The team can line him up next to Chris Ivory and LeSean McCoy. They can put a receiver such as Zay Jones in motion. Pryor can hand to any of those three, he can keep it himself, one of two of those three can become check down options, and then he likely has one or two options on the outside down the field.
This is not going to be successful in the long term, but it adds deception, and it gives the Chicago Bears a look they have not seen before.
We saw the Chicago Bears prepare all week for Ryan Tannehill, hear Brock Osweiler is starting and find themselves unprepared and unmotivated.
The Chicago Bears need to prepare for the idea that Terrelle Pryor will take snaps as a quarterback for the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. As crazy as it sounds, the Bills would be crazy not to.
