  2. I stood around waiting for Schiff for an hour... then had to run to a meeting. He walked out as I was pulling away. CURSES!

    Away Game Roll Call 2019

    I’m planning on a few this year: Dallas, Nashville, Pittsburgh and Cleveland.
  4. I agree, but I think those talks have to happen before the draft starts. If I'm the Seahawks and I think the Bills' second isn't enough but no one else is offering much better and I let the Bills talk to Clark, the Bills may be willing to offer a lot (in part because they think they're making out by getting away with a low-ball draft pick). So Bills offer a lot and Clark says he's take it. This all happens before the draft, but the Bills won't commit until after they pick at 9. Well, that kills the pre-draft market for the Seahawks, because some team that would offer a first for Clark would have to be willing to match, at least, the Bills' offer. But the Bills offer was high BECAUSE they weren't offering a high pick . So I don't see how the mechanics would work to put together that kind of a deal before the draft, and I don't think there's enough time to put it together after the Bills pick at 9. By the way, I've convinced myself that if there IS a deal for one of them, I want Clark. He just seems more likely to settle into the process and commit to it. I haven't seen much of him at all, but he strikes as sort of a souped up version of Hughes, and Hughes has turned into a very effective DE.
  5. Personally, I would only do it for Bosa or Allen. With how much McD rotates his line, I can’t justify that many picks @NewEra is up and we almost have this thing closed out!

    Bills 2019 schedule officially released

    I think really for any team even the best any more then 12 wins starts factoring in some luck and fortunate circumstances. The Chiefs really should've lost a game or two more that they squeaked out last year.
  7. No I tell them unless they get my bill down to what I feel is fair then Ill leave.

    Man caves - who's got them? Let's see them.

    Maybe I can rent it out and turn it into a man cave in the process.

    But...but...maybe we have actually LOST 10 yards, now that there is a big question mark about Barr/Mueller being Russian assets! 🤣 Long Beach Port was where there was one of those "training" raids recently, wasn't it?

    What would it take to make the franchise tag go away?

    I don’t think it would direct a player anywhere but to the highest bidder (as it does now). It isn’t that the owners are worried about feelings it’s about a system that doesn’t achieve its initial goal. It won’t look the same way in the next CBA and the owner’s aren’t going to put up massive resistance. The players will never accept it in its current state and the owners aren’t going to pound the table for it. It’s flawed. You may be able to designate a player as exclusive to you but it absolutely, 100% will not be a 1 year deal that is the average of the top 5 highest paid players at a position. It may evolve to a multi-year deal, it may be the highest paid player at a position plus 5%, etc... The system as it is now is coming to an end.
  14. I guess I'm missing the point. What's wrong with the system as it is? I don't see the players union objecting to it, because the franchise tag is irrelevant to 99% of the players in the league. Getting rid of the tag just benefits a few guys who are making a lot of money already. And being tagged doesn't hurt them all that much. All they have to do is show up and play, and they get paid a top-five salary, so arguably they're getting paid what they're worth. And if they get tagged a second or third year, they're getting paid more than the highest paid guys in the league. Sure, they aren't getting the big guaranteed payday they'd get if they were free, but they're getting paid a lot. It does kind of suck that you actually have to sit out a year to force your team to let you go, like Bell did. Maybe you could change the tag to say that if a team tags a player, it's a TWO-YEAR tag, first year at the average of the top five at the position, then 20% over the top five in the succeeding year AND both years are guaranteed. So if you get tagged, you know you're getting major dollars (QB would be getting $50 million, guaranteed). That would sweeten it for the players and make it a slightly bigger risk for the owners. I agree with those who don't like the way the NBA works. The owners and the fans should be somewhat secure from their best play holding them hostage. I don't want to spend five years turning Josh Allen into the best QB in football and then just let him walk. The Patriots keep Brady happy. The Pack kept Rodgers happy. Seattle kept Wilson happy. Cousins is the only guy who's left for greener pastures, and the Redskins probably wish they'd let him go a year earlier. I'm not seeing the problem here.
  15. Not sure about Clowney but I've seen reports that the Seahawks were already fielding offers for Clark. I imagine the Wilson deal will only solidify that. So the Bills would probably already have an extension in place before the trade went through. If they know they can't afford him, there's no harm in letting potential trade partners talk to his agent.
  16. If that were their plan, I don’t know why they would have signed Fitz. Rosen isn’t going to be on the bench unless he goes to the Giants

    Bills 2019 schedule officially released

    Agreed. I said that if Allen leaps like many of his peers recently 12 is attainable, though still not likely.

    I'm not sure Nashville or the Titans know what kind of hell will be unleashed on them......I'm already planning on Nashville #1, Cleveland #2.

    Schedule Analysis

    Right! It really is the mindset of who cares about bigger or better things. Most NFL fanbases care about success and a product of success is receiving national exposure. There use to be a time we got jazzed up that we got the big games because our mindset was big in the idea of winning big. I thought like you that with Allen's progress/big moments last year a national game with him against Baker or Darnold or Jackson was a shoe in. Even a game vs Wentz and the Eagles would've been cool given they both had the same college coach. Instead we get at best a national game in New England at night which is probably the only it is even being considered and most likely will be a massacre given the Pats record during home night games. This year the schedule actually worked out pretty favorably for the Bills and generally when its home game front loaded they do better. But yea LAC got screwed hard like us. Going that long from home really makes it a tough go and eliminates a home bounce back game to reset if things get rough.

    One week before the draft, and Beane hasn't made one deal

    We're going to move up or make an optimal attempt to do so.
  21. Nunes Statement on Mueller Report The Mueller report ignored a wide range of abuses committed during the FBI’s investigation of the Trump campaign. And now, with the revelation that the Special Counsel was authorized at the outset to investigate Carter Page for allegedly colluding with Russians to hack the election, it’s clear that false allegations from the Steele dossier played a major role not only in the FISA warrant application on Page, but in the appointment of the Special Counsel as well. The biggest takeaway from the entire Russia hoax is that our nation’s counter-intelligence capabilities should never again be abused to target an administration’s political opponents. Those who colluded in this effort – the media, Fusion GPS, Democratic Party leaders in Congress, the Clinton campaign, and partisan intelligence leaders – should apologize to the innocent people they maligned and to the American people they deceived.

    D&C's Roth Serves Up 9-7 Prediction With Playoffs

    I'd be disappointed if we don't win 10+. Not even a homer but we should be challenging the Pats for the division this year.
  24. Yikes! He was great vs LSU, but Ed Oliver looks a little better. But, I trust the Bills FO.
  25. ...Patsies tumble??............ Roth: Bills to finish 9-7, with upsets over New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens Leo Roth, Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 1:02 p.m. ET April 18, 2019 | Updated 1:12 p.m. ET April 18, 2019 New York, New York. Well actually, it’s New Jersey, New Jersey. The Buffalo Bills open the 2019 season with odd back-to-back road games against the Jets and Giants at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford. Fans might want to drive the motor home down and stay for the week. Plenty of parking. Take in a couple Broadway shows. The NFL has released its schedule (heart be still) and here’s how I see the Bills (6-10 last season) faring (Warning: this column contains upsets of Patriots and Ravens at home): https://www.democratandchronicle.com/story/sports/football/nfl/bills/2019/04/18/buffalo-bills-to-finish-9-7-with-upsets-over-new-england-patriots-and-baltimore-ravens/3507707002/
