  1. Alex, I'll take "Let's Speculate Despite Insufficient Data" for $400.
  2. None of us have any idea what the future holds at this point. I love football but with all that is happening, there is so much more to worry about that I have a hard time appreciating football even as a distraction. Bottom line, if things are anything like they are now come September, no one in their right mind would go to a stadium full of people. I hope it doesn't come to that for reasons far more important than football. Strange times.
  3. Mims might not even make it out of the first round.😞
  4. I'd rather analyze how he did in short yardage situations but the Bills didn't give him the ball in those situations, trusting Josh or Gore to handle them. Besides, not losing yardage is not exactly what you are looking for. In my limited understanding of the game, the goal is to gain yards, not avoid losing them. Devin is awesome at that in many situations but. 4th and 1 guy he is not. Call me crazy but we already have a small, quick guy, why do we need two? Is it so awful to have a guy who can bull over a few defenders? I have more than one kind of knife in the drawer, you want nothing but steak knives?
  5. I could have been good on short yardage behind that line. Not a lot of successful short yardage backs in the NFL at 5'-7".
  6. Call me an optimist but I think that young people are not going to band together to fight for the right to kill their grandparents. We don't have a choice on the economics. Whether its because we do nothing and people die left and right or we shut down for 9 months, there is going to be an economic disaster. As my not very bright uncle used to say, that horse has left the station and the train is out of the barn. Here is some fun math. If you have the "normal" flu, you will infect 1.3 to 1.4 people. Ten layers of that means you infect 14 people. If you have this virus, you will infect 3-4 people. Ten layers later, you will have infected 59,000 people.
  7. i don't think we can afford to have two RBs on the roster who are next to useless in pass pro and short yardage situations. There are plenty of RBs with a skill set that offsets Devin's weaknesses that we will have a chance to draft. I'd pass on Edwards-Helaire.
  8. It is unclear as to whether or not people who recover from this virus will be immune to reinfection and if so, how long that immunity will last. The seasonal corona viruses which make up 10-30% of common colds reinfect people over and over again despite their exposure to them since childhood.
  9. I would add TE. Knox dropped a lot of passes last year and was very shaky at pass pro. Kroft's resume is a black hole for two years running. There is no better way to help a young QB out than a TE who gets open, reliably makes tough catches and hits on his blocks against blitz happy defenses. I think/hope they find a solid TE somewhere in the draft. It is a key position in the modern game, all the best teams have a standout at TE.
  10. Sounds good but I don't agree that a FA TE wouldn't help. And having guys under contract does not mean we don't need to improve the OL.
  11. Makes sense but resigning guys doesn't make you better, it keeps you from getting worse. It was the offense, not the defense that needed the most help and so far, Diggs is really the only change on offense. It will have to be a very good draft and our first pick isn't until late in the first round. There are some good backs that will be there and there are some very interesting WR's that will be around so hopefully, the offense will get what it needs.
  12. I believe there is a legal limit as to how many free agent defensive lineman you are allowed to sign in one off-season, or there ought to be.
  13. I am a little concerned that we have spent so much attention on the defense and, beyond Diggs, left the offense without badly needed reinforcements. The defense was solid last year, the offense, not so much. Where is the investment in the offense beyond Diggs? Yeah, we re-signed a guard and brought on a top notch deep threat and separation specialist at WR but the offense is still behind the defense talent-wise. I guess that will have to happen in the draft.
  14. I think you have him confused with Art Vandelay, well known importer/exporter-architect
