Twitter reactions: Bills fans respond to Matt Barkley as starting QB vs. Jets

With Bills first-round pick Josh Allen and veteran Derek Anderson ruled out for Sunday's game against the Jets, Matt Barkley - signed on Halloween - will be under center for Buffalo's visit to East Rutherford, NJ. Nathan Peterman, who flopped in his two starts this season, will be relegated to a backup role.

That's scary.

On a day when the Buffalo Sabres came from behind to stun Vancouver in a shootout, fans of the city's football team lamented how rough - even farcical - this season has become.

Here are some of the top Twitter responses to the Bills' announcement that the former University of Southern California quarterback would start. Barkley, 28, has not started a football game since New Years Day 2017.
