  1. No reason to run a different play. If Dawkins gets dozed on your option play, like he did the play they ran, it wouldn’t work either. It wasn’t the play it was the execution. Allen is 6’5, 240lbs. He should get a yard. Most times he does.
  2. Bills fans are everywhere. Southern California is deep with Bills Mafia.
  3. Beane can do both because that’s what GMs always do. Look for the next player. In fairness they’ve not been able to replace Wallace after 3 years or so and they’ve given him competition. At some point fans have to accept the fact Wallace is a good player.
  4. If that’s the case what’s the point of doing it again? Would circumstances have changed that much? Seems like a waste of money.
  5. My bet is Beane drafts either a 1 Technique DT, OG with Center versatility or CB in the 1st round come April. And I’m here for it.
  6. Maddie works for the organization. It doesn’t get more “we” than that. If you went into their offices I’d bet you would hear “we” from many people who don’t actually play on the team. Many fans say “we” as well and don’t have anything to do with any sports organization they root for except spend money and emotion on it. And so what? It’s figurative not literal.
  7. What should be on their minds is building something specific to them. UB had, what, 10-15 g’s for Coastal Carolina and the placed sounded like an abandoned building. It was embarrassing. I wouldn’t anticipate that foolishness translating in a bigger venue. if it does happen, hopefully people in the city and the students act like they have a pretty good football program in town.
  8. That would be absolutely terrible. UB, if they’re comfortable staying at their current level, need their own building. If they build or renovate, correctly, with amenities, that might help their attendance issues. They deserve the support. But putting them in a partitioned stadium or a too big venue would be yuck. At a certain point money needs to be spent. Everything can’t be done on the cheap or on a discount. UB will be there for generations. Their stadium will be definitely be used.
  9. I get that. My question was rhetorical. UB’s issue is lack of support. How much worse would the atmosphere be in a bigger stadium? Unless UB/State is serious about going big time in football. Then it makes sense. But if they’re cool staying in the MAC no point to them being in on a Bills stadium.
  10. A shared stadium why? UB can’t get 20,000 people now. Playing in a 62,000 seat stadium won’t improve the atmosphere.
  11. It’s pro sports. It’s business. Some might be priced out of season tickets, unfortunately. This is the main reason PSE proposed the stadium type/location that they did. To keep costs as low as possible while sill raising them. Put a roof on that added cost will show up in the PSL rates and ticket/parking costs.
  12. Stadium shows are few and far between. You’re talking the top 1% of musical acts that can fill a stadium. There might be 15 or so acts across genres and generations. And not all of those acts tour regularly enough to count on booking them as part of a plan to use the stadium for more than football. it’s a stadium that will be meant for football, with the odd concert and alternative programming thrown in. No, it doesn’t make sense to spend billions on a stadium, but it’s happening and is the cost of doing business with pro sports. Stop trying to make it make sense and enjoy the fact that your team will be in its city of origin for future generations.
  13. Not just you. This is my first time on since the game. Don’t have time for the doom and gloom. The loss is bad enough. Don’t need the lack of reason that comes right after a loss.
  14. It seems they just try to fill up time, which is understandable, but here’s the thing: if there’s no Bills/Sabres news what about other teams or other sports? People taking time to listen to a sports radio show probably like sports, in general, and would prefer a discussion around various teams/sports if paired with the right guests, instead of various “drafts” of films and foods, etc.
  15. He doesn’t seem interested in the actual game. He seems more enthusiastic about things that are ancillary to the game. I just lose interest. I like Bulldog when he’s by himself or with a different co-host.
  16. I agree with you. People are sleeping on the Steelers. Hard core defense and excellent skill position players. The game will come down to the Bills D-line, front 7 v Steelers O-line. I think the Bills front will win that battle. But Steelers will make their share of plays.
  17. I don’t know. Newspapers are dying, but MLJ and Fairburn work for digital platforms which is the present and future of journalism and seemingly everything else. Keeping careers alive in that environment would mean diversification in skills, not necessarily market. And you see both on podcasts, MLJ doing TV spots, etc. covering other sports will be the next thing to add to their portfolio. Fairburn went home. Being from Cali, MLJ was probably looking to get away from winter.
  18. I’m sure the fact both are already very familiar with the AFC East had something to do with their new assignments.
  19. Milwaukee is 3-4 hours away. If Milwaukee counts for Green Bay, Toronto should count for the Bills. Now that it looks like the Bills will be good for a while it’s time to market heavy in Toronto if they haven’t been. Winning creates fans and corporate interest. Milwaukee is over 500,000 people in the city itself. When I visited it was scary how much many parts of the city reminded me of Buffalo.
  20. I think Singletary will play very well, but I doubt he gets 1G. They just don’t choose to run that often. If it happens it will be because of the defense. Offense will score points. If the defense doesn’t give points back to the other team and the opposing team stays blown out, McD and Daboll will definitely grind out the clock at that point. But Miss and Gilliam would probably get most of that work.
