  1. That may have been true the past couple of seasons but with the acquisition of Von Miller and the end to the previous season the Bills are the odds on favorite to win the Super Bowl and Josh Allen is the MVP favorite too. The expectations and predictions are coming in from national media. The Bills are on the radar nationally and for good reason. If Josh fails to win the Super Bowl this season the media will ratchet up the pressure.
  2. I didn't realize they played Crowder. That being said when you sit your top 3 WR's and you still get a good performance from a WR who is 4-5 down on the depth chart it isn't a bad showing.
  3. But then you add Kurt Angle to the mix
  4. I hope both have solid seasons it would be nice to have the Brady era Patriots cycle of players getting overpaid elsewhere then coming back and balling out again.
  5. Solid little acquisition for the Oline depth.
  6. That’s pretty common with NFL Coaches, however there has been questions as to how much those long hours pay off in the long run. Not only is the human body/mind only capable of so much but at what point are you over preparing? Given the NFL’s culture I don’t see this changing anytime soon.
  7. Coaching goes far beyond simply calling plays and in game decisions. Yes that is one aspect of good coaching but the team building and organization building aspect is far more important and McD is one of the best organization builders out there.
  8. Schobel makes the pass rush elite, Peters solidifies the Oline and Lee Evans makes the offense unstoppable.
  9. Good competition for that 6th WR spot and for a returner you could do worse than kicking the tires.
  10. Seems gimmicky but I support the attempt to do something different.
  11. ESPN’s business model once rights fees took off was always the highlights and pundits would produce the money while the sports would break even and be a gigantic ad for the networks. The rights fees are still massive and not making much for the network and the punditry and highlights are declining due to the internet. Sports Center or your local news used to be the only place to catch a game highlight now you can get that online. There is also a lot more punditry options online too. ESPN will survive but it will not be the Golden goose it once was ever again.
  12. I wonder if they did "elite" level NFL players how outcomes would look? I can think of several elite players who had ACL tears and come back to form.
  13. Tua doesn’t scare me at all. He gives me Tyrod Taylor vibes (less of a runner than Tyrod but a bit better of a passer) in the sense that he can play smart and not turn the ball over but not win you many games against better than average competition.
  14. The arena football league used to have the one yard rule, it just resulted in a bunch of QB sneaks. I don't hate the idea of under two minutes kneel downs leading to a clock stoppage but I am sure that adds much excitement.
  15. That's kind of how I feel, why go into a season with SB expectations and not look to help out one of the positions you are weakest at?
  16. I think if the bills were making one last “fine tuning” move for the roster they are better off adding a vet CB or Oline player. Cook was added to the back field in the draft that’s plenty to pair with Singletary
  17. Would be a nice final piece to add to the secondary as even with Elam added there is a lack of depth at the position esp if Tre isn’t ready to go at the start of the season. Add him and another vet Oline piece would be the last fine tuning of the roster.
  18. 7 prime time games plus a Thanksgiving game, how the turntables, if true.
  19. Feeling the same way, although I didn't hate the third round pick I thought it would have been better to spend that pick on the O-line which is still pretty thin.
  20. I would like to see them try and bring in another vet O-line body. Probably my only true concern on the roster is O-line depth. I also wouldn't mind seeing AJ Klein back I know they just drafted a LB high up but one more LB is solid.
  21. Love it, reminds me of Robert Woods. Great depth short and long term
  22. I think Billy B's has taken a lot of players off the scrap heap and gotten good production out of them on both sides of the ball. I think he has also gotten some draft hits here and there all throughout the draft. But no GM is perfect and as a GM I would say he is pretty average at best maybe better on the pro side esp in the bargain bin.
  23. McD turned an undrafted free agent in Levi Wallace into a capable starting corner, T.Johnson into a stud slot corner, early returns on Dane are solid and T.White turned out to be an All-Pro. I trust they know how to find corners that fit their system.
  24. Truly in a position to take the best player available and just add to the depth and talent level of the team. Wouldn't be surprised to see a WR or OL/DL player taken.
  25. Some of these players will be signed as backups or starters for bad teams, some will be mid-season injury replacements. Since you don't count for the comp pick formula after the draft I expect a lot of these former Bills to be snapped up after the draft.
