  1. True if you are buying a few for your own use and for some reason want to sell some games. This is meant to prevent big players from buying hundreds or more just to try to sell at higher prices.
  2. I think that There is a bit of arrogance among Long-suffering Bills fans. The Bills are a very good team on paper - one of the favorites in AFC, but make no mistake there are other outstanding teams in the AFC.
  3. Oh man, that’s bad. I feel terrible for a guy who was working hard and potentially ended his career.
  4. I’m not a 40-time is all that guy, but Khalil Shakir ran 4.43. It isn’t just 40 yard dash times that make a deep threat.
  5. Is Araiza’s release quick enough? I’m not saying that it is, but it seems a little slow from what I’ve seen. Does he take an extra step compared to many punters?
  6. I agree that good players come in different shapes and sizes. I also agree that athleticism can make up for less than optimal size. I also recognize that there are examples of great players who have less than ideal size and some that succeed despite less than ideal athleticism. Further, intangibles matter. Still, Bernard is light - maybe he can add some strength. He is a good athlete and is supposed to be a leader and high effort player. All that I am saying is that his athletic testing numbers say good, but not eye popping and he is somewhat undersized.
  7. I’m not trying to be argumentative, but overall players were lighter back when Ham and Singletary played. Remember Refrigerator Perry was HUGE at 300 LBs back when Singletary played.
  8. Citing one undersized player who has excelled at the NFL shows that it can be done. It doesn’t mean that being undersized isn’t a concern. He has good speed and quickness, but not sure excellent speed and quickness. If he plays fast, that is important as well.
  9. I hope that he can contribute beyond special teams. He is very small for a NFL LB and isn’t super fast to make up for his lack of size. I understand that he is very smart and a hard worker.
  10. We don’t know what weight under control means. He looked to be carrying some bad weight last year. If he drops 10 LBs of fat while maintaining strength, that doesn’t seem like a bad thing.
  11. Again, late in the rounds, theoretically you aren’t getting as talented of player as early in the rounds. It’s also pretty early to give up on Rousseau and Basham after only their rookie year - and Rousseau was a starter who played well. Sack numbers are not the only measure of a DE. Also, Bills’ secondary plays soft zone a lot which gives QBs easy underneath throws which doesn’t give the pass rush much time to get home. Hopefully, the DEs develop and Elam, White and Jackson can be more aggressive in coverage to give the rush more time.
  12. Rousseau was picked 30th in round 1 and Epenesa and Basham were late 2nd round picks. Shocking that they haven’t been as good as a top 10 pick DE…
  13. You're kidding, right? Jackson is a sub-par athlete by NFL standards and was a 6th (I think) round pick. I *hope* that he is as good as you think, but I'm very skeptical of that. Elam has better size and athletic ability, played in a better conference than Jackson did and has NFL blood-lines. Best case, both Elam and Jackson are starting calibre and White returns to his previous form. How is that bad? I'm not the biggest fan of the Cook pick, but he can play and make an impact at the NFL level. He is more receiver than RB, but he can for sure tote the rock a few times a game. His hands and speed make him a threat. Could they have found a WR there? I don't think so - I think he is a better fit than Skyy Moore who went just a pick or two earlier and he does more, too.
  14. He was picked for his receiving ability and he can handle 10ish carries a game as well. I like this pick better than dropping a 1st on Hall who is bigger, but a lesser receiving option. They run empty backfield sets relatively frequently and Cook can play in that without worrying about his blocking. Few, if any, RBs come into the league as good pass blockers.
