  1. I don't see that he's been activated from the practice squad. Buffalobills.com was updated with Von Miller going on IR, but doesn't show any PS activations.
  2. There is no longer a "doubtful" designation. There is "questionable" and "out". And, of course Josh is currently questionable. Looked for the link to show the rules, couldn't find it. But, I know I heard it on WGR the other day and looking at the injury report, those are the only two used anywhere so I'm quite sure it's correct.
  3. Right before the "sliding" quote from Diggs, Josh was chanting "jockstrap, jockstrap". On a Dawson Knox interview someone posted earlier in the week he was asked what they think about Josh hurdling and Knox' response was that they make promises to do embarrassing things to get Josh to slide and his example was that he (or someone else?) promised to run around practice only wearing his jockstrap if Josh slides.
  4. The main claim to fame for Jeff Wright was him getting the first sack of Dan Marino in 20 games (not 20 Bills games, 20 Fish games). Marino had set the consecutive sackless game record at 6 games and obviously went basically a full season longer until they met the Bills and Mr. Sack himself, Jeff Wright. https://buffalonews.com/news/wright-sacks-marinos-streak/article_3798f993-a015-55e4-8edf-fcf6fb0ec806.html
  5. I remember the 1993 season (had to Google the year, my memory isn't THAT good) when the NFL expanded to 18 weeks giving each team two byes. There were teams on bye every week of the season, even weeks 1 and week 18. There were SEVERAL weeks that the games just completely sucked! Pretty sure that's why they only had it the one year. "The double byes are a double disaster," then-Sports Illustrated columnist Peter King wrote in 1993. "... The bonehead result was that there were as few as 10 games per weekend through the first two months of the season, not 14. Fewer games, fewer chances for good games, obviously. Another by-product of the double bye: With so much time off between games, teams fall out of sync."
  6. He claimed he "felt horrible immediately." Well, if this were true, why didn't he go back to the guy, check to see that he's ok, and, if still on the ground help him up. Besides the obvious that was already pointed out, that this apology was on social media instead of reaching out to him directly, bs, fine the crap out of him and suspend him.
  7. We'll see. I tend to think that when he's healthy, if a team that has a realistic chance to make a deep playoff run wants him and he expects to get significant targets, he'll go for it.
  8. In 3.25 seasons, a total of 447 yards, best season 2020 with 21 receptions for 224 yards. Last season, with the #1 receiver out much of the year, he had 1 reception for 13 yards. As someone said above, who do we cut to make room for him? Taking AZs trash isn't a winning strategy. https://www.google.com/search?q=andy+isabella+stats&rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS919US919&oq=andy+isabella+&aqs=chrome.1.69i57j0i131i433i512l6j69i60.8427j0j9&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
  9. Considering they started on the 20 yard line and Motor could have scored if he didn't give himself up (and even if he was stopped short Josh would have scored after), and if the Ravens kicked a FG the Bills likely would have started at or around the 25, it seems extremely likely Josh drives for a TD.
  10. I don't think we can assume McKenzie is out. Conclusions come in all levels of severity. I read on this board he's doing his show today which implies it's likely not severe. And hopefully Davis will be better with resting most of the week. Othersise, Hodgkins or Austin it is.
  11. Absolutely correct. Wilson didn’t want to lose the Miami rivalry which was still big at the time. I remember I completely agreed and was thankful for his stance but now believe that was silly. Would much rather be in a rust belt division with Pittsburgh Cleveland Cincinnati.
  12. My seasons are in section 132 row 35. Everyone in front of me stands the entire game. Personally, I don't care either way, I'd stand or sit during plays but have no intention of missing the play because the person in front is standing. Therefore, I stand for all plays, sit mostly during commercials and sometimes between plays. I haven't been to a concert in a while, but it always bothered me if people behind me are yelling "sit down in front" and those in front of me are standing. I normally could go either way there also, but hate that I have to choose between not seeing or forcing those behind me to have to make the same decision.
  13. Agree. Although a smart player may realize on his own and not score, that's not what they do anymore than knocking the ball down on a Hail Mary on the last play of a game instead of trying to catch it and risking a deflection. It's not in most player's thought process to not score and the coaches must coach it into them and tell them the situation.
  14. As someone said above, SoFi had either this or similar. I thought as I walked in how much better it was than at highmark. Very glad for the change.
  15. Chris Berman used to always call Fontes "Rasputin" because he or his teams would come back from the dead. After starting the season average, he kept making the playoffs with late season surges (just to get beaten in the first round of the playoffs). In one of the first Bills SB years he beat the Bills backups (primary starters all were held out since we had the #1 seed wrapped up) in OT to make the playoffs. Regarding BB, he's a great defensive coach who recognizes the importance of a great offence. I say the last part because I believe it's not always true with defensive coaches. I think many would continue to play a conservative style and want their defense to win games. That approach may have still won BB a couple of SBs, but certainly not six.
  16. So far as what percent were Bills fans, I swear it looked like half. I was in Section 514 row 11 (50 yard line) so I could high up and could see pretty much the entire stadium except the rows behind me. It looked 50/50. I saw a few things: When standing in line for beer, 7 to one ration Bills to Lamb fans When going to the bathroom, at least the same (of course correlated to the above) When I was walking out, as expected Lamb fans left much earlier than Bills fans, I stayed to the end. But, It looked like 50 Bills fans to each Lamb fan. I took a picture when I started walking down the stairs to exit. See below:
  17. Where were your seats? I was also on the 50, section 514 row 11,
  18. No reason not to do both. Hopefully most people do make some regular donations of whatever amount they can afford to either charities they care about or an umbrella group like United Way (many companies have United Way campaigns to encourage their employees to give through payroll deductions). In addition, when tragedies happen, be it an earthquake somewhere or a family member of a stranger that we care about as fans of what they do, it's great to do that one time donation for a specific cause related to that event or that person.
  19. Ok, as I know no rap at all, is this a take on one of his father's or uncle's songs? I admit, I was hoping Griffin would stay on the practice squad but I assume if he's the first cut, that's unlikely. Not because he did anything, he hasn't done anything at all except get a bad penalty in a preseason game last year. But because he went to high school with my son. He didn't know him, but still was cool that someone at his school was on the Bills.
  20. I 100% disagree with this, or maybe that just depends on context (i.e. pro vs. youth). I spend a large amount of time volunteer reffing youth rec soccer and also paid reffing Club soccer. Have also reffed some lacrosse. Now I pretty much stick with volunteer rec. Parents and coaches can be unbelievable axxhxles. Really nice, normally calm people get completely worked up over a kids rec game. Coaches put in a heck of a lot of time, all volunteer in this rec league, but their emotions get the better of them. I've coached for years as well and admit I've crossed the line a couple of times as well. I also am in charge of referee instruction for my local area. I used to put up with the crap that parents or coaches give but then I noticed that this is why we lose referees. They just don't want to give their time when parents can be such jerks. Yes, we make mistakes. Some of the refs are not very good at all. Even the best of us have some bad games and none has ever reffed a perfect game. Now I don't put up with any bull whatsoever. As soon as I hear criticism, I shut it down, partially so the next referee doesn't have to deal with that. Virtually any call I make (or don't make), half the people will think it's wrong. If I call a foul, it's either ticky tack, not as bad as the other team has been doing, or should have had at least a yellow card. If I give a yellow card, one side thinks it wasn't deserving while the other says it should have been an automatic red card. And yet, I go back and will spend another 6 to 8 hours the next Saturday and Sunday doing it all again!
  21. I'm having no issues withe the app. Used it yesterday and it on right now listening to Josh's interview.
  22. Very sorry for your loss. If you're willing to break them up, I'm looking for one ticket. I'm going with my brother but was hoping to take my 98 year old father with us. Please PM me or text me at 949-923-7242.
  23. I have a ticket but want to bring my father who turns 98 in two weeks. If you have one extra ticket, please text me at 949-923-7242.
  24. Up until a few days ago, I could click on links and read the story without having a Twitter account. It seems now I'm always asked to log in or sign up. Are others seeing the same thing?
