[BN] Blitz newsletter: A.J. McCarron still the favorite to win Bills' QB job

Jay Skurski was asked in his weekly mailbag which quarterback he thinks will be the Bills' starter now that we're through OTAs and minicamp.

Skurski is still going with former Bengals quarterback A.J. McCarron over first-round pick Josh Allen and sophomore Nathan Peterman.

"I’m still picking A.J. McCarron until I see otherwise at training camp," Skurski wrote. "It’s true that Nathan Peterman had a solid spring, but the competition is far from over. It’s also possible that the Bills decide that rookie Josh Allen is the best quarterback they have and ready for the job from Day One."

A caller into our office recently asked which quarterback I think will start the most games in 2018; I picked Allen, but agreed that McCarron looks like the better bet to start the opener. The Bills' bye week is Week 11, but I'd guess Allen takes over before that. We'll see how it shakes out in camp.
