Evans Critical Of Decision To Start QB Trent Edwards In 2010

ESPN reports that Lee Evans was not all that in favor of the team starting Trent Edwards at the start of the 2010 season.

Wide receiver Lee Evans doesn’t mince words when he reflects on the Buffalo Bills’ decision last summer to go with Trent Edwards at quarterback instead of Ryan Fitzpatrick. New head coach Chan Gailey gave all the first-team reps and preseason starts to Edwards. “That was a huge missed opportunity,” Evans said Monday. “It’s hard, especially at the quarterback position, to come in and take control as he did…It’s a remarkable feat to come in and do what he did last year. Had we been doing it from the beginning, he would have been that much better even earlier.” In 13 games, Fitzpatrick completed 57.8 percent of his throws for 3,000 yards and 23 touchdowns with 15 interceptions. He played with a panache that made those ordinary numbers seem even better to Bills fans.
