But, no, don't let facts get in your way of judging him - that would be ridiculous.
Cam like Vick like RG3 have never won anything and probably never will. I must say, i like watching them too!

Cam is already a better quarterback than Vick was in his prime, and he's played 31 games.

Yeah RG3 will never win anything. He is on his way to the playoffs despite playing the toughest schedule in the NFL, and his team having an 18M cap penalty while running the 4th best scoring offense in the NFL and having a qb rating over 100 in his rookie year.

You could probably get a job on First Take.

Not kidding at all... It's actually a great idea. What's so bad about it in your eyes?

Getting a number of first round picks then trading them for more picks in the upcoming years for a qb that's damaged goods and is headed towards the end of his career? Guarantee that if a team did offer 2 first round picks for Ben, management would take the deal. It would be a GREAT opportunity to rebuild our team in multiple positions for years to come. Weather it be age, terrible coaching or a combination of both.... This team is not a Serious contender, so we may as well get the future handed to us for a aging half broken qb.


Let's hear your argument......

Fans like you make my head hurt. I got excited when I saw the title of this thread and then extremely disappointed to read such nonsense. You must be young or just not very knowledgeable about the game of football.

Cam is not a joke, but other than his age you gain no advantage with him over Ben in fact you lose. Example Cam is so far a 59.2 percent passer while Ben is a career 63.1 Cam QBR of 86.2 and Ben career of 92.5, Ben throws a TD on 5% of his total passes while Cam 4.1% and they both throw INTs at a rate of 2.9%. Cam has had only 1 NFL 4th quarter comeback while Ben has 20 And Ben had 7 in his first 2 seasons. Cam is a good QB but I think you along with others are reading too much into this last season as the decline of Ben.

2 1st's would be tempting for anyone to at least consider. Just from a logical standpint, and Matt Barkely better be the pick if not its not worth any risk as they will never sign a free agent QB that is worth anything.

Back to reality, I would not ever trade Ben. Im not too sure the Rooneys would think that, imo they would trade him if they got a high offer for him as they hold a grudge from the past. However The Bills have way more issues than just at QB and no way they would toss 2 1's for Ben.
