  1. They already have one of the best punters in the league. I doubt Punt God makes their team but for his sake he shows something and someone else signs him. I'd love it if he came back here as he can flip the field which in some games vital.

    Wasnt an option. Had nothing to do with social media pressure.

     

    The Bills had two options:

     

    Keep him on the roster through the entire trial, and keep the ensuing media circus and constant distraction around.

    Or cut him.

    We could have signed him the practice squad after the cut though and at least held his rights a little longer to see how things finished.

    would prefer him to be WR3

     

    Diggs

    Rookie

    Samuel

    Shakir (mostly slot)

    Rookie

    Shorter

     

    it looks like he did have an impressive season under Brady with 851 receiving and 200 rushing

    60% o Samuel's snaps that year were in the slot, if we sign him we'd have to kick Shakir outside, not sure that's the best way to use him since he excelled in slot last year.

    Just for fun, I decided to score WR prospects on some of the metrics that I find to be important and create a prospect score that I then translated to a projected draft range. I took both 2022 and 2023 into account for these scores but weighted it more off of 2023 (with the exception of one player who missed almost the entire season). Then I took the draft grades that I have from watching film and decided to combine them into one all-inclusive draft grade (slightly favoring film over metrics). The prospects that I've watched film on graded out this way (combined grade first, then film, then metrics):

     

     

    I'm curious if you've evaluated Cornelius Johnson from Michigan at all? as he's on my sleeper list of WR. I mentioned before but think his size and skill set remind me of Romeo Doubs who the Packers took in the late 4th a few seasons ago and came up big for them in the playoffs.

    Mooney or Samuel plus a first or 2nd round WR would be great additions. 

     

    Though not sure we can afford those guys. 

     

    Bourne +1st round pick would also be great and perhaps more realistic. 

    I loved Bourne as an in season trade candidate but now he's coming off an ACL tear so he's not on my short list. I will bang the drum though for Noah Brown who has similar size and skill set that Gabe does and likely a lot cheaper. Toss in he showed last year in Texas he could be a pseudo WR1 when others around him got hurt. I also like the idea taking a WR early yet more into liking taking one after round 1 as feel we need a quality DE and to me harder to find that after round 1 than a WR. I mentioned Brown and Ja'Lynn Polk in Round 2 and then taking a guy like Cornelius Johnson in Round 5.

    This has been discussed in other threads, but the main problem I see here is why any of these guys are going to choose Buffalo to sign with on the cheap when there are going to be much better options elsewhere.

     

    And even if you take the obvious out of the equation with the Chiefs, you can argue the Bengals, Ravens, and a plethora of NFC teams are going to be better options for most championship hungry veterans because most are going to understand the Bills have no path to a championship if anything because of the head coach situation.

    The same head coach that it seemed the team to rally around when it came to questions about the type of person he was?

    That’s the crazy thing though…

     

    UPL is top 10 in saves above expected. He’s having the best season a Sabres goalie has had since Ullmark left.

     

    The Sabres also have a better 5v5 scoring rate than last year.

     

    If you told me Buffalo would improve goaltending and 5v5 scoring (over last season), I would have said they are a playoff team. Yet here they sit near the bottom of the standings 🤷‍♂️

    UPL took some time to settle in and toss in he was splitting time with Levi who isn't ready (and I didn't want playing in Buffalo to begin with). Not only that but Granato's system isn't the best when comes to defense. I don't know what the answer is but the more and more I watch Granato the less and less impressed I am by him.

    I think: 

     

    - Cam Lewis is back to complete for the FS job

     

    - Poona Ford is back on a slight pay bump from last season, will actually be on the active roster, starter if Jones does not return

     

    - Daquan Jones is back if he will take a deal that reflects a player in his early 30’s coming off a season mostly lost to injury.

     

    - Ty Dodson tests the market, ultimately returns on a 1 year deal

     

    - TM44 returns on a 1 year deal

     

    - Dane Jackson returns

     

    - Shaq Lawson returns in August

     

    - AJE leaves to start elsewhere 

    - Floyd leaves to get paid elsewhere

    - Hyde ‘retires’ 

     

    Poona was absent even when he was on the field. Sorry I would not bring him back. Instead I'd go for a guy like Montravious Adams or Armon Watts to add to the rotation, granted I haven't really researched all UFAs this year so am sure there are other guys out there.

    Not saying I like or agree with it, but I could see bills selecting Chop Robinson de penn st.

    If he's there and we lose Floyd and AJE I'd support this and look for a guy like Ja'Lynn Polk in Round 2.

    He's legit.  I've watched Georgia quite a bit and he jumps off the screen.   Toying with SEC defenders out of the slot. 

     

    I actually prefer Pearsall, who seems more athletic/explosive, but I'm not sure where people see slot WR's playing in this Offense..

     

    We already have a high potential slot WR for next year in Shakir and Diggs is a guy who we should probably think about transitioning more to the slot as well.  

     

    IMO, with that knowledge, along with Davis likely leaving in FA, it seems like the Bills should probably be in the market of bringing in multiple outside WR's. 

    I mentioned Noah Brown as a possible Gabe Davis replacement as a veteran, I also think Cornelius Johnson is a guy that could be an outside threat in the NFL.  He might never be great but think could be at the very least similar to  Romeo Dobbs. I'd also take a WR in Round 2 or 3 assuming we get a DL in Round 1.

    The question is: Will Diggs make peace with that?

     

    Bonus question: Will his brother?

    As Diggs says he can't control his brother and it's obvious the brother wants him in Dallas. It doesn't mean Stefon wants the same thing. Personally I think Diggs got painted with a bad guy brush in the Minnesota media perhaps because he voiced displeasure there and now people want to continue the story here in Buffalo but don't think it's happening. Yet Diggs know he ultimately can't control the media's narratives and just gives them indirect answers to their questions.

    Sounds very strange.

     

     

    Never heard of it but watch very little main broadcaster shows other than NFL.

    Series seems to be on YouTube free.  Burt Reynolds in it makes it bizarre enough I may look at it.

    Worst part of streaming series is dealing with opening credits repeatedly.  

    Watched "The Legend of Prince Valiant" that way and got so used to skipping opening credits with a certain amount of time I started doing it with other videos and needed to back up on them.

     

    Do you mean the 2011-2018 show?  In the first season, the Evil Queen interrupts the wedding of Snow White and Prince Charming to announce that she will cast a curse on everyone that will leave her with the only happy ending. As a result, the majority of the characters are transported to the town of Storybrooke, Maine, where most of them have been stripped of their original memories and identities as fairy tale characters.

    Watched this for a few years but schedule did not work for me due to work and those I saw were out of order.

    When I see it on DVD set inexpensively I'll buy it.

    No, it was during the 80s and looks like Ridgeway found it.

    That might be 'The Charmings'.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Charmings

    That's the one. 

  12. Some of these are 80s gems.

     

    Small Wonder -Who doesn't like a robot named VICKI?

    Out of This World- Who doesn't like a half alien girl who talks to her dad (voiced by Burt Reynolds) via some weird Pyramid/Triangle thing?

    I don't remember the title but was with Snow White/Prince Charming but in modern times.

    King Henry would not be worth the money that we would take to sign him

     

    We are like 50 million over the cap. This is a place where we can save money.

    Exactly it's about value and right now we have a starting RB in Cook, who was 4th in the NFL in rushing. We do need a compliment though and love to get AJ Dillon on a low cost deal.
