  1. That’s pretty much how I see it myself. I appreciate that the Pegulas bought the Bills and built a marvelous new training center and hired a GM and coach who seem to have turned the thing around. But they are multi-billionaires with mansions and a yacht. If they need $1.54 billion of taxpayer money as the price of keeping the team in Buffalo , Nuts.
  2. Sal Capaccio’s take on the practice. Similar Kumerow love Similar comments to the effect of “Dawkins, we Miss You, Get Well Soon!” https://www.audacy.com/wgr550/sports/bills/bills-practice-in-front-of-thousands-at-highmark-stadium
  3. Matthew Fairburn Athletic artcle I think there are a few hints that the Bills may be using stadium practices in front of fans to do some roster evaluation. Ryan Bates, who is still here, filled in for Dawkins in a couple of games last season and looked capable. I’m told Bobby Hart looked lost out there. Spencer Brown is still learning. (Fairburn doesn’t mention Bates in his article) If the answer is “Bobby Hart”, I’m not sure what the question was Bolded echoed some points guys have made here. I wasn’t impressed by the video clip
  4. You said you “hated the pick”....maybe you’re different, but most people who hate something, are putting some energy into it.
  5. I don't even think it's a matter of energy, it's a matter of understanding data and track record...let's pick a team which I believe most people would acknowledge to have a long track record of drafting well. I'm gonna take the Baltimore Ravens. Picks since 2016 include Matt Judon (Whoooop whooop!), Jermaine Eluemunor (still in league with Dolphins after stint with NE), Jordan Lasley (never played a down), Daylon Mack (has bounced around 5-6 team practice squads), and Broderick Washington Jr. The latter showed some promise and was seeing playing time last year, but m
  6. Whippersnapper Well, most round 5 picks do have a short league lifetime....at any position. The Bills picked him because by the end of the 5th round, he was sticking up on their draft board, and they knew they needed an upgrade at backup QB, nothing wrong with taking a shot for that in the 5th IMO.
  7. Where did you get this information that we can't counter? As far as I know, it's incorrect - if another team makes an offer to your practice squad guy, you ARE allowed to match it (but the same restrictions about needing to put the player on the active roster for 3 weeks apply) I think angst about PS'ing Fromm is another Fosteresque Bills Fan-ism. Other teams passed on him at least 4x. There's a new crop of promising QB from this year's draft. Here's his draft profile for reference: https://www.nfl.com/prospects/jake-fromm/32004652-4f32-5139-dbcd-9c79c7f41e56
  8. This did not quite go where I expected.....heh
  9. Er, don't they have Mac Jones? NBC says he's been very impressive the first three days of training camp https://www.nbcsports.com/boston/patriots/mac-jones-shares-impressions-patriots-qb-competition-training-camp
  10. If you told your wife she needed a spanking would you be ducking?
  11. Enchanting! Then if Tua looks so marvelous, all the talk of how the Dolphins are trying to deal for Watson must be baloney, yes?
  12. Yikes, that's a huge setback for any potential career. They.Aren't.Even.Wearing.Pads.Yet
  13. I can't figure out how to link to it directly, but NFL Network interview is up on NFL Network. About halfway down their training camp coverage https://www.nfl.com/network/events/nfl-training-camp
  14. I thought she had a point 🤷‍♂️ I mean, it's a great throw, whoo hoo - but we knew after last season Josh can make amazing throws. The question is, can the defense do its part and can we have enough run game that we're not so one dimensional. Steak and potatoes
  15. Man, if Frank Reich didn't have bad luck with his QBs, he'd have no luck at all. Rivers had a foot injury, now Wentz - wonder if there's anything in the training facility or the turf they practice on that contributes? I think the Colts need to start playing Country Music backwards at practices
  16. McKenzie improved a lot on his route running last season. By all accounts he seems to have taken another step.
  17. Coach Sal takes on practice: https://www.audacy.com/wgr550/sports/bills/running-backs-and-a-skirmish-highlight-day-3-at-bills-camp?utm_campaign=sharebutton&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_term=WGRAM More detail on the Oliver-Brown skuffle: Kumerow and Gentry impress: Sal says Rachad Wildgoose looks good. I can't remember who said it, but earlier someone else said UDFA Oliajah Griffen looked ahead of him.
