    Game 3 thoughts...


    - Last night was a reminder to Dave Roberts that if the game is close, DO NOT bring in Kenley Jansen.

    Skip...I tried to warn you.  

    PS Crazy ending.  Here’s hoping for a fantastic 3 game finish! 🤞

  2. Game 3 thoughts...


    - Beuhler was great.  It's too bad Charlie Morton wasn't up to the challenge.


    - Last night was a reminder to Dave Roberts that if the game is close, DO NOT bring in Kenley Jansen.


    - I like Mookie Betts, but the announcers raving about his defense and base running while his offense has been mediocre is tiring.  $365 mil contract, postseason totals...15 games, 6 Doubles, 1 HR, and 7 RBI.


    - Tampa has shown they don't have the offense to come back, if falling behind by more than a couple runs.




    Game 4...


    Dodgers win tonight this series is all but over.  Therefore, here's hoping for a Tampa win tongiht.

    Chan Gailey loves him some Fitzmagic so I have to wonder If the QB change was forced on him.


    On a side note Fitzpatrick would make a very good coach on the Offensive side of the football. I feel like Tua may offer Fitzy his 1st taste of what it feels like to help coach an elite athlete up into being the best that he can be IMO. (scary thought)


    I know allot of Fitzpatrick fans are dissapointed for him. On the other hand though Fitz is on the wrong team for us to love the old bearded one the way most of us do so its for the best.


    My dilemma is learning how to hate Tua now... ( bama fan )



    I wonder if Fitz sees the light at the end of the tunnel and saw this as maybe his last opportunity to be a starter...and emotions got the best of him?

  4. I would have expected something more like this from Fitz...


    “Yes I am disappointed but I have been on enough teams to know that this is how it goes sometimes.  Therefore, I will do everything I can to help Tua, and at the same time, be ready to go in, if needed.”

    Instead, he came across as whiny, especially about having to sit in a room on a zoom call for 4 hours(QB meeting?). 

  5. I’m just getting old and cranky 😂, but I mostly stopped wearing Bills gear when out of town(I’m in WNY), because of this.  I don’t mind if I’m sitting at a bar while on vacation, and someone wants to talk about the Bills season(if I happen to have a Bills cap on), but just randomly yelling at strangers “Go Bills”...no thank you.

  6. For the fans yearning for Beane to do something, he already did.  He spent 10’s of million in cap space on mediocre DL players.  His only move now is to sit on the sidelines and try to fix the mess he has made,  in the off-season.

  7. I’m sure it is a closely guarded secret at OBD, but how much say do you think McD has in terms of personnel?  I’m not talking about who starts and who sits, I’m referring to what players are signed, traded,  and drafted, and which players either don’t make the 53 man roster, or in the case of Spain, cut loose in mid-season. 

    Bottom line...how much blame goes to McD for the OL and DL disasters despite $$$ thrown at the problem?

    In regards to the salary cap, the Bills are: 
    #1 in allocation on the DL - https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/positional/defensive-line/

    #2 in overall defensive spending- https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/positional/defense/

    #4 in allocation on the secondary.  - https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/positional/secondary/

    #6 in allocation on the OL - https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/positional/offensive-line/


    These spotrac numbers are not pretty. In fact, they are downright UGLY. 

  9. I don't remember this at all.  Take that Fireman Ed. 😂


    After finishing 1-15 in 1996, the Jets were primed to select Peyton Manning with the No. 1 pick and team him up with the newly hired Bill Parcells and previous top pick and wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson.

    Then the future Hall of Famer Manning stunningly announced he would return to Tennessee for his senior season, creating one of the biggest what-ifs in Jets history.

  10. I'm going to be happy for either team.  I was glad to see the cheaters get knocked out, and I like Atlanta, but Acuna is a bit too much of a hot dog for my liking.  Huge payroll vs. small payroll.   Hope it goes 7 exciting games.


    I'm going with the Dodgers!

    Does anyone have any update on if the Bills will be allowed to have a minor level of attendance soon? Last I heard a week or two ago, Cuomo was scheduled to visit Bills Stadium and talk about safety of this matter. 

    Can I answer your question with a question?  If there was any news on this, don't you think there would be at least a 1/2 new threads related to this topic?

    McDermott is loyal to his coordinators at the expense of what is best for the team....he is his old players also as evident from raiding the panthers castoffs......Frazier is past his time and the tampon 2 is too simplistic to beat top teams in the NFL......dabol has zero run schemes that work but is a decent pass scheme coordinator.......we need to scrap the tampa 2..move edmunds to olb and run more 4-3 and nickle packages on passing downs with tighter coverage..on the opposite side of the ball we need to learn the fundamentals of run blocking and run more off tackle and outside sweeps and reverses to keep opposing dlines off balance from just collapsing the interior of our oline on run downs......

    A coach who refuses to change when something is clearly not right, is doomed to fail.  That includes players, coaches and schemes.

    Singletary does NOT seem like any part of the problem to me from what I can tell. He is a skilled back with quicks and surprising power.

    I agree on this.  While he may not be superstar material, he appears to be more than adequate.
