With the exception of Tom Brady, there are quarterback questions throughout the AFC East division.

But if you get to the second and third year and you're still seeing the same mistakes, that's when you get concerned."
This is a pertinent story for Jets, Bills and Dolphins fans. Here is a link to read the full article.
