    I'm pretty sure they know exactly what they want and where. Funding discussions probably take up most of the next couple years. We'll be in a new stadium before Josh Allen turns 30.

     

    They've already been doing this research for nearly a decade. 

      This is no different from what I said...best case 5 years.  3 recent domes have taken approximately 3 years from ground breaking...and there will be at least 2 years of design/site acquisition/financing/etc...

    The team plays better in controlled environments and your now a passing team with a QB who will be around 10 more years hopefully. Build a dome

    Only one problem...half of those 10 years would be spent arguing about the site, the financing and construction issues. A new stadium is at least 5 years away. 
     

    That being said, I have been and remain in the “downtown dome” camp for years now.

    What makes you think that Josh was "the guy"?   The only thing we know with certainty from the draft is that Lamar and Josh Rosen weren't their guys since they were passed over.  "The guy" could very well have been Darnold or Mayfield.

    I'm said this all along.  Not only this, but people act like Beane is a mind reader and knew Josh would still be there at 7.  I'd love to know what the plan was if Josh went in the top 5 along with Baker and Darnold.

    I remember watching when Josh was picked.  I had told my buddy "the Bills have picked out their guy, and they're gonna get him no matter what it takes."  I think they did the same thing when they moved up to get Dawkins and Knox.  I believe they have a guy they want in this draft, probably one in each round, and they will do what it takes to get him.  If they have to move up, they will do that.  If he's there at #30, depending on the situation, they may move down a bit to get him.  But they'll get him.

     

    Any thoughts on who "their guy" might be?  

    Keep in mind that unless the Bills moved to #1 overall, there was no guarantee the Bills were going to get "their guy in Allen".  There were six selections that could have really messed with the plan.

    Didn't the Teller trade somehow get us Diggs? Google is telling me that one of the picks was later flipped for Diggs so yes. Got to break some eggs to make some better eggs or something.

    Your fuzzy math doesn’t add up.  Are you trying to say that without trading Teller, the Diggs trade would not have happened?

    I know Rocket Ship 7 with Dave Thomas (who is still alive) was on mornings when I was a kid. I think Commander Tom got moved to mornings in the 90s but that was long after I moved away.

    Don’t forget Dialing for Dollars w/Nolan Johannes & Liz Dribbin, and Johnny & Jimmy...on the accordian and drums.  😊


     

     

    I’ll never forget as a young boy, my mom took us to see Dialing for Dollars(as they had a live studio audience), and off camera in the one corner was the top half of Promo. I was very confused as to what I was seeing.  😂

  7. They can't even compete for a playoff spot over the last decade in a league where half the teams make the playoffs each year.  A Sabres team that is challenging for the Cup is so far off in the distance, it's not visible without a telescope.  Sad times for Sabres fans.  :(

     

    They have wrecked this franchise.

  8. Other than the fact that Beane can't find DL anywhere in the NFL except for Carolina, my biggest problem is the ridiculous rotation of the DL by Frasier/McD.   I'm not saying your best 4 have to be out there 90% of the snaps, but it is ridiculous when your best DL are playing less than 60% of the snaps.

    IMO...Not even top 20 for me. Spags parody acct can be funny, but not that funny. 

    Off the top of my head...

    I’d have to search the archives sorted by most views/replies, but I am sure over the last 20 years there are many other doozies.

    The NFL finalized media rights deals worth $10B annually, or $110B over the course of the 11-year deals. For many consumers, the new deals will look largely like the last deals, with the big TV packages remaining unchanged on CBS, Fox, NBC and ESPN, albeit for much bigger rights fees, and many more...

    So each team receives ~$300mil each year from the TV deals?

  11. I still think the off-season needs to revolve around how to beat the Chiefs in the playoffs...

     

    1 - Improved pass rush by DL(not addressed yet)

     

    2 - Improved offense...if you can’t stop them, you have to outscore them (Brown out, Sanders in. No net gain)

     

    3 - Get home field advantage throughout the playoffs and make the Chiefs play here in front of 70,000 diehard fans(TBD).  

  12. I’d be shocked it this was to announce a trade or big name FA signing.  Word would already be leaking out.  Like others said, nothing more than we are glad to re-sign Williams, Milano and Feliciano...and welcome aboard Emmanuel Sanders.
