A few months ago, Matthew Stewart and I had a lively discussion about whether the Vince Young signing would create a QB controversy. We went back and forth for a bit and at one point, Matthew made a great point about Young. I’m paraphrasing, but it went something like this:

“Buffalo loves athletes who are famous. Young sucks but he’s famous. That’s why we are talking about it.”

Bingo. That’s exactly right. That quote probably fits Shawne Merriman as well. Never has a free agent – who mind you, was cut, signed, injured, re-signed, injured again, and cut – gotten so much credit for doing things like bringing Nick Barnett and legitimacy to a market. Seriously, Buffalo? Culture change? Let’s win 10 games in a season before we start talking about a culture change.
