  1. The difference being Danny Snyder threw a wheelbarrow full of money at Canidate.  Gordon is probably still under his rookie contract.

    I'm wrong...Looks like Canidate signed a new contract with St Louis prior to being traded to the Rams.

     

    St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) - The St. Louis Rams have traded running back Trung Canidate to the Washington Redskins in exchange for guard David Loverne and a 2003 fourth round draft selection.

  2. howard schnelanbarger was coaching OSU.  they played UM in ann arbor. the team buss ran out of gas on i-75 after the game as the OSU team lost.  the were 1 mile from the ohio state line and toledo.  coach told the players to get the fu@k out of the buss and push it to Ohio state line and buy their gas, as opposed to the michigan stevestojan gas.  they players got out and pushed...

     

    great story...

    Did your story somehow get derived from this one???

     

     

    Woody was famous for his hatred for Michigan and anything that had to do with the state (he referred to it, of course, as "that state up north" or "that team up north") . One night on a recruiting trip in the state of Michigan, an assistant noticed that the car he was driving was going to run out of gas. He let Woody, who was dozing in the passenger seat, that he had to pull over for gas. Woody refused, and the assistant drove on. The assistant, who saw the weather was starting to get bad, began to become worried about getting stuck in the middle of nowhere, and once again stressed his desire to pull over and get gas. Woody erupted: "No, goddammit! We do NOT pull in and fill up. And I'll tell you exactly why we don't. It's because I don't buy one goddam drop of gas in the state of Michigan! We'll coast and PUSH this goddam car to the Ohio line before I give this state a nickel of my money!" The assistant knew he wasn't kidding, and they barely made it across the border and sputtered into the first gas station they found in Ohio.

  3. hate to be negative, but i ahve serious problems with this unit.  in fact, i have had serious problems with this unit for the past 6 years. 

     

    Jennings is injury prone.  the guy cant stay healthy for anything.  his ankles have some odd problem with them.  NOt bad when healthy. Can hang with the edge rushers pretty well.

     

    Pissullio is useless.  he should be a bouncer at some college bar in some small town, not on a nfl field palying against premier de tackles who school him 8/10 times per game.

     

    Teague would be great on a WEST coast offense, as he was supposed to on with us.  He is not a power center.  HE is a chop blocking center with good range who can roll out of his stance well to move with the QB in those systems.  He should play out west somewhere, maybe DENVER!

     

    vallarie is pretty solid.  he will paly 16 games in the trenches and work hard to muck it up.  type of player you like to have in the 4th quarter when the players are dead tired and you need the 1 yard on 3rd down.  good cold weather player as well.  solid lineman.

     

    Williams is average.  So - SO on pass blocking and so -so on run blocking. cant dominate a game as advertised by Donahoe.  he is part of unit, as opposed to being the main part of the unit (ie orlando pace, ogden, roaf, tait)

    Smith is starting at LG not Pucillo. ;)

  4. Allen Wilson is the best writer in town. He's OK in my book.  ;)

     

    Jack, Jay and I were able to witness it firsthand, 8 days ago.. Glad to see it's become a daily ritual. It can only help Evans get better.

    Mark, Kind of you to speak highly of Allen. So he scours TBD for ideas when he is having a brain cramp...no big deal! :doh:

  5. It's called BLUE FRIDAY and is downtown at Fountain Plaza.  Players and Alumni will be there to kick off the season.  It's taking the place of Jumbogate.

     

    I can get more info if any of you are interested it is at 5:30pm

    21180[/snapback]

    89...Why did you have to remind that there is no more Jumbogate? I still think the league ruling on this is a joke and the charity that benefited from this is getting screwed.

    I'm going to try and be there. Thanks for the heads up.

     

    :rolleyes::o

  6. it's called sarcasm, labatt.  i thought canadians were known for their sense of humor?  (yes, i'm assuming you are canadian because of your screen name and avatar -- if that is an incorrect assumption, i humbly beg forgiveness.  in that case, you're an american w/ no sense of humor.)

     

    :rolleyes:

    No I'm not Canadian. Born, raised and still living in WNY. I have a great sense of humor. I just forget where I put it some days! :o

  7. 1. Will the O-Line protect Drew and open holes in the running game?

    2. Will the run "D" wake up and shut people down?

    3. Will Drew get rid of the ball?

    4. Will the "D" continue to force turnovers?

    5. Will Kelsay put pressure on opposing QB's?

     

    If the Bills can make 3 out of 5 happen, I forsee a 10-6 record and a playoff berth.

    1.Pass protection will be better(it's all relative) and yes

    2.They will be solid.

    3.Let's see what happens when the live bullets start flying. Saw some positive signs during camp.

    4.Yes. Once again, it's hard to be any worse than last year.

    5.I'm still not sold that this DL can pressure the QB consistently without the aid of blitzers or blanket coverage in the secondary.

  8. I think it is the case of neither of them raising their play to a level where he forced the team to play him a lot and rely on him, but I wouldn't say it was a case of both of them being failures so we are in big touble because neither took the job.

    FFS...I don't think Kelsay and Denney are failures, I just thought Kelsay was going to take the bull by the horns and end the revolving door at LDE that the Bills have had since Hanson left.

  9. Didn't you make your point earlier....

    What is wrong with posters cheering for certain players to make the squad? Hoping for Lawton to make the 53 man roster or practice squad is a lot more credible than all the Jason "Slash" Peters hype that has occurred here since before training camp started and now that he is back on the practice squad, will continue. Good thing no one else gobbled him up. Now we don't have to worry that he will come back to haunt the Bills.

     

    Just my 2 cents!

  10. What about the LDE situation?[/b] Two starters at LDE.  They will get rotated, possibly spelling Schoebel as well.  Both have done well.

    I am not sure what to make of this two headed monster at LDE. Instead of both doing well as stated by TD, is it more of a case that neither of them raised their play to the next level, so therefore the Bills will play both of them and hope for the best???? :rolleyes:

  11. It's all a case of supply and demand. All of a sudden New England has a huge waiting list for season tickets due to their success and so therefore decided to raise the ticket prices.

     

     

    I am fairly sure that the prices that New England is charging would never cut it in WNY. RW is still making a pretty penny at $37 a head.
