  1. I was about to post the same. It really shows how historically bad the Dolphins have built that team to be. Conversely, we have to feel pretty good about where we are on this one. Good metric, I haven't seen it before!
  2. Seems like he should be on our Practice Squad
  3. Will it be Rosen? Or can it be Fitzpatrick? Regardless, Bills Win
  4. Who will we get next week? So far the Fins are the only team who are yet to experience FitzMagic, unless that 4th quarter today counts? #MakesMeNervous
  5. True, but they don't need a starter at LB, just a strong back-up and ST contributor. Plus again, he wouldn't cost anything in trade compensation.
  6. There's 2 games before the trade deadline and I would think that Beane will take a close look at what he has using these games as a test. First up the Fins. My guess is that they'll have a pass happy game. Lets see what Duke Williams can do now that he's had a game under his belt. And I imagine Robert Foster will be back. They'll take a close look as to whether this WR core can handle some more aggressive passing and determine whether they need another WR. Second is the Eagles which will be a big test for both the O and D against some stronger competition. DeSean Jackson and Alshon Jeffrey should be back by then and we'll see how the D handles all that. Also plenty of test there for the O to show a complete balance game. I would think that any deal would be triggered after those tests. Maybe someone like Emmanuele Sanders (in last year of contract) could be a WR target? Also, I'm thinking Geno Atkins DT from Bengals as an upgrade over Peko might work. If they need a LB, it could be someone like Bucannon who was just cut by Bucs and they don't have to give anything up for. They should be able to get all three w/o parting w/ 2020 first round pick...
  7. where else would you rather be than right here, right now?
  8. You are what your record says you are
  9. I checked out his post-game press conference and to his credit he handled it well. I was half-expecting him to be in meltdown mode as well
  10. Truth,... with that one INT being mentioned over and over again
  11. At this stage there's no way anyone is paying a 1st for Green. To me even a 3rd is too high. I'll bid a 4th.
  12. While there are other more high profile moves, I'd like make a shout out to an under-the-radar move that shows how good Beane really is. The trade for Ryan Bates. I can't recall another example of a team trading and established NFL player for an UDFA rookie and scoring the win in that trade. Eli Harold was an established NFL player. Not a star, but certainly established and still young. He wasn't going to make the team and as players like Darryl Johnson were stepping up. Beane not only pulled off the trading of an asset that was going to be cut, but targeted a rookie who nobody else knew. Bates demonstrates his value, makes the team, offers position flexibility and yesterday was a key part of our 4th quarter victory. I don't know what Bates will eventually turn into, but it kind of reminds me of when Polian snagged Steve Tasker, a guy nobody knew at the time, as Houston tried to sneak him through waivers to bring back from IR. https://www.mcall.com/sports/eagles/mc-spt-eagles-column-saturday-moore-20190915-5nsoc6ujfzfkdj3r5442vus56u-story.html
  13. This a very good topic for the bye week as the NFL has now become a much more activity trading league. The trade deadline will see the lower rung teams dumping players for draft picks like we've seen for years in the other major sports. The article below shows several teams that gearing up for a big run. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/patriots-chiefs-ravens-saints-eagles-seahawks-among-teams-already-laying-groundwork-for-frenzied-trade-deadline/ Where do the Bills fit into that is the question that I'm sure they'll be talking about this week. I love the way they built this team from the ground up and this new trading trend kind of flies in the face of that. Plus Beane got burned on Kelvin Benjamin trade two years ago in a similar situation. If they're going to make a move, I'd love to see them get Geno Atkins from Bengals (sending Peko back to PS for this year). I'd also like to see us get a better 3rd RB. I'm mixed on Yeldon and Gore will need more help as the season progresses. I don't think I would trade for Gordon, so it would have to be someone else. Maybe Drake or Bellage from the Dolphins? Von Miller would be amazing, but the price would be pretty high, I imagine.
