    No reasonable person thinks Lamar Jackson is better than Josh Allen. No matter how many awards he may or may not win.

     

    However there are many people that think Jackson is a terrible QB. Those people are wrong. 


    He’s terrible against playoff defenses. 
     

    If the goal is excitement and regular season success, then Jackson is great (hence the awards). 
     

    If the goal is winning a Super Bowl, unless you’ve got the Steel Curtain defense, he ain’t your guy.

    im saying there are people who have conceded we are never beating the chiefs in the playoffs like @FireChansand @GunnerBill 

     

    which i halfway agree with tbh...but i go further to say as constructed we are never beating anybody of consequence a la bengals etc in the playoffs when it matters

     

    the folks to whom im referring are convinced we would be sb champs if only for the chiefs and i see little evidence of that

    I have not conceded that. 


    Are you two gonna fight?  
     

    I'm guessing that GunnerBill hits like a girl. 
     

    But from what I understand, GB808 is a midget, so it might not matter. 
     

    If I were a betting man, I think I’d put my money on the Pacific Islander.

    yes, that's the mentality ive seen this offseason. bills fans are so used to seeing the patriots at the top for all those years we just transferred our stockholm syndrome from one tormentor to the next. people think it's an inevitability the chiefs will always win and that our only hope is to just avoid them en route to a super bowl.

     

    this thinking is understandable when we have ej manuel or tyrod taylor at QB. w a guy like Allen...well you said it best. it's a loser mindset


    This has nothing to do with Patriots PTSD. 

     

    It has everything to do with the McDermott/Allen-era Bills finding ways to lose in the playoffs. 
     

    As far as the Chiefs always winning … that’s been happening since Mahomes got there. 
     

    No one is imagining these things.

    By all accounts it will be a sellers market so if they decide to part ways with Alonso or Severino at the deadline they should bring back some nice pieces. The trade deadline is still over a month away and as we've seen in the past month a lot can change, but as it stands right now the only way I'd move either of those players is if it brought back a top top prospect.


    I would like to see at least two top prospects (one for each). 
     

    Other than pitching, we will need a 3B (this is taking almost as long as it’s taken to replace Piazza) and a 1B (was Delgado our last legit 1B?  Does Duda count?).  
     

    We need to get some young guys in trades and spend some cash on decent position players.

    @SinceThe70s @Gugny @ExWNYer

     

    Good morning.  It’s certainly an interesting spot I find the team in and not one I ever thought was possible last month.  Just kicked the Yankees butt and are back to .500 and right there for the 3rd wildcard.

     

    Grimace effect or what but do you mess with shaking things up now come trading deadline? 


    I still think they need to think long-term. 
     

    Trade whoever is not going to be part of the future now and get something for them. 
     

    Definitely still need to be sellers.
     

    As weak as the NL is, we could get rid of Alonso and Severino (at the very least) and still make a wild card run.

    This is one page I found of theirs...

     

    Dreamer - The Supertramp Experience - Tribute Band Toronto, ON - The Bash

     

    I'm on the fence about going. It's at one of the local casinos. Tickets would be $30-$45 depending on where I sit.  It's not sold out, so I could probably even wait till day of to decide.  


    Seems like a pretty legit tribute. Probably some YouTube footage of them. 
     

    That price range for a very good tribute band really isn’t bad.

    What are your thoughts on cover bands?  There is a Supertramp cover band coming through my area, and as seeing they have not toured in years, and it's a group I would want to see, I'm considering going.  

     

     


    I have learned to embrace tribute bands more over the past few years. 
     

    I’ve seen a couple great Beatles tributes, an excellent Queen tribute, Billy Joel and Traffic (one of my favorites) as well. 
     

    Bands line Brit and Aussie Floyd are playing major venues now. 
     

    I did spring ($) to see Aussie Floyd many years ago in Albany and have no regrets. 
     

    For the Supertramp tribute, is it a touring act with musicians who have resumes?  Or it is a local-ish group of musicians (we’ve got a local group of musicians who put on tribute shows - but they charge way too much ($40) than I’m willing to pay for a bunch of local guys) ?

    Stupid question.

     

    Turn on the tv bro.  Open a newspaper.  Flip thru a magazine.  

     

    There used to be a time when sexuality was private.  It should stay that way.  

     

    EDIT:  if your post was a joke cause "crammed" and "tossing" were used, hysterical!!  


    I think you mean “there used to be a time when sexuality was only portrayed with opposite sex, same color, couples.”

    You’re correct. 
     

    but I for one am

    tired of having it crammed down my throat and tossed in my face constantly. 
     

    be gay.  I don’t care.  Just stop

    pushing it on others. 


    Where is this cramming and tossing happening?

    Saw this on X and figured it was a joke. But nope. We're beyond parody at this point.


    What do you mean “beyond parody?”
