    Prediction: Nathan Peterman Bills Starting QB Wk. 1 vs. Ravens

    I'll expand on this a bit. I think if AJ and Nate indeed look like a dead heat through preseason, both WILL be kept even if Allen is lighting the place up and looks ready to rock. The reason I think that is because the wild-card is, are we dealing with a Preseason Warrior who fades when the pace and intensity ratchet up during the regular season? They want to field a capable team this year I believe, and they won't know for sure until they see a guy play a regular game. I'll put it out there, though, that I think it's a pretty big "if".

    Ah, yes, I recall the days when folks here lobbied most vehemently that we just COULDN'T expose Levi Brown to waivers, someone would claim him. Well hey y'all guess what. Unless Peterman just lights up the place like a pinball machine in training camp and preseason, don't you think the market for a 5th round draft pick entering his 2nd year, and who threw a record number of picks in one half of a game last year, would be a bit limited? Note: I'm not saying that defines who Peterman is as a player, I'm just pointing out it would seem to limit his market to other teams. And if his velocity doesn't improve or his judgement about what he can do with it doesn't change, he won't be a backup either.

    how is Josh Allen doing so far?

    Even so I think what did in Vince Young wasn't his throwing motion, but his "knowing motion", knowing where to go with the ball.

    Mock Draft Has Bills Selecting At #1.....

    No, they clearly wouldn't pick a DT #1. They will surely take a DB at #1 instead. Kidding! Kidding! That aside....I have faith in McDermott's coaching to keep us out of top-5 pick contention unless they let Allen start and he's 2 picks per game while learning....but I DO think there's a reason Beane fought hard to keep our entire draft board next year, and it's not because they intend to be in Superbowl contention.

    Confession #2. I wanted Hue Jackson as HC after Marrone quit. Rumor had it that was the guy Whaley wanted and he was already negotiating with Schwartz to stay as DC. I now think Jackson would have been a horrible choice.

    There are QB who have unorthodox footwork or platform or throwing motion and make it work.

    Photoshop could maybe help you with that. Shop the 0 into a 2 maybe? I Feel Your Pain

    Julio Jones Trade possibilty?

    I’m not sure what all Beane plans to spend the money on, but at a guess, it isn’t gonna be a splash, PR-intensive WR trade where he then has to sign the guy. I wouldn’t rule out Beane doing that at some point in the future, when he thinks That One Guy is the missing piece - but do you see us as there, at the moment?

    I thought Ryan Fitzpatrick had the potential to be a decent NFL starter. I was wrong.

    NFL planning to suspend Jameis Winston for 3 games

    The time frame matters to the ability to conduct a reasonable investigation. If you investigate in a timely way, maybe the worker at the drive-through window noticed who was in the car and where they were sitting. Maybe there would be a cash register record of what was purchased that would corroborate if there was just Winston or several guys in the car. Maybe UBER has records that get destroyed after a time. And the memory of the other people involved will be better. A friend's kid got married almost 2 years ago to the day. I remember driving here and there with various people in the car, and for several of the trips I know two particular friends were in the car with us, but we made a number of drives and no way could I accurately swear to who was in the car on some of them.

    Nicely done!

    Well, for 26 of them, he flung them in the general vicinity of Brandon Marshall or Eric Decker and they came down with the ball
  13. LOL at Mayfield asking Cowherd if he played football past the HS level
  14. Yes, having talked to some Browns fans recently, >6 wins would apparently make them quite, quite happy. The question is would it change the franchise's QB plans wrt Taylor, who is a FA in 2019.
  15. That they do, but do you think a 7-9 or 9-7 record for the Browns with TT as QB and 200-220 ypg would be likely to change those plans?
