    Hypothetical : Trade down in 1st with Raiders?

    Would i do this? Yes. Would the Raiders do this? I think unlikely.

    Who Are You Rooting for the Rest of the Way?

    I just want the pats to make it to the game, and then in the lead up, a low level pats assistant gets caught taping the other teams walkthrough in a way that gets out on Twitter before the league covers it up. Now THAT would be popcorn worthy TV.

    Out Of Divison Rivals

    i think the Jags are quickly climbing up that list. a gritty playoff game followed by an all out brawl. as good a choice as any for us. im hoping for us to develop a nice browns rivalry for years to come with baker and allen going toe to toe. that would be fun.

    Bills hire Heath Farwell as ST coordinator

    To be fair to the "there is a Carolina pipeline" narrative people, there have been a lot of players with connections: Tolbert Benjamin Star Kaelin Clay Joe Webb Derek Anderson Leonard Johnson Dean Marlowe Newhouse (traded to Carolina from Buffalo) Now i dont think it matters and think Beane and McD are doing a great job, but to say its a false narrative is understating the connection by an equal amount as people saying they only hire Carolina people and its weak. Both sides are far from reality https://www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nfl/carolina-panthers/article173506866.html https://www.buffalorumblings.com/2018/8/9/17669920/buffalo-bills-are-loaded-with-former-carolina-panthers-sean-mcdermott-brandon-beane-kelvin-benjamin https://www.catscratchreader.com/2018/3/30/17177796/are-the-nfl-carolina-panthers-buffalo-bills-in-a-committed-long-term-relationship http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/24796233/marshall-newhouse-traded-carolina-panthers-buffalo-bills

    Shaq Lawson 5th year option on the table

    For the people debating the value of Shaq’s ability to block passes at the line vs sack the QB, I would submit that the NFL passing game has evolved in a way that should significantly increase the value of DL pass blockers. Quick slants, WR moving pick plays, etc are the new norm of passing offenses. These plays are extremely difficult, if not impossible for the DB to defend (boarderline but rarely called offensive pass-interference) and the ball comes out so quickly a sack is nearly impossible to achieve. These plays are called frequently on important downs such as 3rd downs and near the goal line. Also slants and other quick strikes frequently turn into huge plays (Tyreek Hill for example). On WR moving pick plays (Patriots run them all the time) outside of the QB/WR making a mistake, the only surfire way to defend these plays is to bat the ball down at the line. Shaq has found a niche for this and should improve on as his experience and awareness grows. This is not to say that sacks aren’t the more impactful of the two... just don’t discount the increased importance of pass defense within 3 to 5 yds of the line of scrimmage given how passing games have evolved.

    Vance Jospeh named DC in Arizona...how???

    Remember when Rex Ryan sucked and then we hired him immediately following his firing? And remember when we then fired him before he completed his second season? Good times.
  7. if i remember correctly, Gruden loved Mariota coming out of school when he was doing his Gruden QB segments for ESPN or whoever. Maybe the Raiders go from one brutal QB deal to another...

    Speculation on Golic and Wingo that Rosen could be traded

    completely agree. i think to the original comment, there is close to zero chance he goes #1 overall to the cardinals, but easily someone could trade up so #1 and take him #1 overall... Cards would probably LOVE to trade down as well and retool, so might even trade out of #1 for a discount IMO

    Tre White Deleted Bills Photos from IG

    I thot it was dumb...then looked at his IG account and it is curious, I must say. Antonio Brown??? Lol.

    Who is the 2019 MVP of The Buffalo Bills?

    McD can’t win bc of the overall record and the QB descisions early on, although I like how he keeps the team playing hard even after they are out of it. Milano, Hughes, and White were all great, but I think Allen was the only Bill that changed the game when he was in there vs when he wasn’t. T Edmunds prob was best non-QB player down the stretch post the bye.

    Eric Wood - His Bills offseason shopping list (The Athletic)

    What would you do on the pass rush points? I think Shaq Lawson has come on strong and definitely should remain as starter opposite Hughes...so need a sort of rush OLB type? Would you mix in more 3-4 using Lawson, Star, and JH in 3 fronts and then bring in Harry Phillips for 4 fronts to play the penetrating DT role Kyle played? Given this draft is so D heavy thats maybe where we go? (i want OL, in partic the guy from alabama if he is there)
  12. I’m as pumped for Levi Wallace and his future as anyone on here, but you’re not being fair. PFF grade ppl on % positive plays without taking into account the volume of plays or who they were playing. Ward was their CB#1 playing almost every down against the other teams top WRs. Levi worked into the game in situational circumstances. Most the time it was an almost certain passing down, and was rarely against a genuine #1 WR bc Tre almost always covered the true #1s. He didn’t even play the first 9 games of the year. So, Levi is promising for sure, but did not have a better year than Ward, who won AFC ROTW for 2 of the first 5 weeks of the season, and played as their #1 CB all year.

    Josh Allen final numbers

    Also keep in mind the tons of drops his WRs had. A number of third and longs were dropped over the back 6 weeks. Clay dropped a 40 yard TD at the end of the first Miami game. i think his numbers don’t really tell the story. He is a playmaker. If he gets surrounded by some more playmakers, this offense could be electric.

    2018 QB Class Future Projections

    as a fan of the league, the one thing that is AMAZING is that between Mayfield, Darnold, Allen, Jackson, and then throw in Mahomes and Deshaun Watson, all these QBs are in the AFC. Years and years to come of marquee QB matchups reminiscent of Kelly, Marino, Elway, Moon, Kosar, Esiason etc. Unfortunately for us Bills fans, it makes the road to the super bowl more difficult for years to come, but at least should be a treat to watch.
