With too much talent to draft an all-star quarterback next year, but not enough to win a Super Bowl, Whaley feels stuck between heaven and hell.

Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley told WGR 550 radio on Wednesday that his team is stuck in “quarterback purgatory” because the team is “good enough that [they] won't be picking first or second overall.”

The team's current quarterbacks—Matt Cassel, Tyrod Taylor and EJ Manuel—are fighting for the starting job, but none of them have much experience in a starting role. 

Cassel played just three games last season for the Vikings. Taylor has logged only 14 games across four seasons with the Ravens, and has started none. Manuel played five games for the Bills last season, and posted a quarterback record of 2–2–0 with five touchdown passes.

Quarterback Kyle Orton started 12 games for the Bills last season, but announced his retirement in December after 10 years in the NFL.

The Bills finished 2014 with a 9–7 record in second place in the AFC East.
