Here is a good backup plan for Rex Dan Leberfeld

Rex Ryan is going to be the next coach of the Buffalo Bills.

Some wonder why Ryan would take this job, considering their quarterback situation is far from ideal.

The Bills likely starter next year is the team’s 2013 first round pick, E.J, Manuel, who is still a major work-in-progress.

Why would Rex jump into another situation, with a weak QB situation, after he never had a franchise QB during his time with the Jets?

Perhaps it was the only job he had a realistic shot of landing. It looks like Atlanta said, “thanks, but no thanks.”

So what can Rex and Bill GM Doug Whaley do for Manuel insurance?

Give Mike Vick a call?

I know a lot of people don’t agree, but I think Vick can still play. I’m not going to hold that awful game in Detroit, against Buffalo, against him. He had a bad game. it’s happens to the best of them.

We saw in Jets games against Pittsburgh and Kansas City that the guy still has game.

Vick still has world class speed and has maintained great arm strength.

And he has a lot of game experience, which is huge at such a challenging position. Playing QB in the NFL is one of the most difficult jobs in all of sports. Vick has started 112 NFL games. He’s 34. There are quite a few NFL starters in their mid-late 30’s.

Vick could be terrific backup plan for the Bills in case Manuel doesn’t work out.
