    Shaq Lawson on roster bubble

    He breaks it down a little bit more if you click on the tweet. I don't think anyone expects him to become Clowney considering Clowney is bigger and more athletic. A lot of players take time to make an impact though. With Shaq's newfound motivation, hopefully he puts it together.

    6-15: Brandon Beane on One Bills Live

    Zay will make the 53 and will only be out produced by Benjamin, Clay, and Kerley. I like their extremely cautious approach with Murphy. I love the sponge comment about Allen. I can see why they liked him before the draft regardless of the completion percentage. I recently rewatched The Matrix. The sponge comment made me think of the part where neo is having all of the information implanted and dozer calls him a machine. Is Josh "The One"? I kid, but still really, really like everything I hear about Allen. He's obviously got a lot of work to do, but I can't imagine he fails due to lack of effort.
  3. Good point, I missed that. I was looking for another example and saw this one. I don't miss him looking for someone else to blame. Whether it was someone else's fault or not, it just looks bad.
  4. You're absolutely right. I'm not sure how many siblings are older or younger, regardless, he's a great example of a kid that really gets it.
  5. White is always in control on the field. When I watch Gilmore, there are times he seems like he's just barely keeping it together while playing coverage, while White looks like he's always calm and collected. I think it's easier to get away with a little grab here and there if it doesn't look like you're using that tug to stay with a receiver. Here's an example. Gilmore makes a nice play on the ball, but at the top of the route it looks like he almost falls back and is totally out of the play. I used Gilmore as an example because it felt like he was called for illegal contact all too frequently.
  6. Two part article by Jay Skurski going into where he came from and Shaq's motivation. http://buffalonews.com/2018/06/08/tredavious-white-reflects-on-journey-from-a-forlorn-field-in-louisiana-to-the-nfl/ http://buffalonews.com/2018/06/10/tredavious-white-bills-shreveport-lsu/ I really enjoy these pieces and reading about where players come from. A lot of them are heartbreaking because it makes you think about all the horrible things so many kids go through. I love hearing about them going back and working really hard to encourage kids to work hard in school and on the field.
  7. He threw it after his break. No anticipation, BUST!

    Tremaine Edmunds vs. Roquan Smith: Direct Comparison

    So far it seems like Edmunds is passing all of the mental tests with flying colors. He reportedly is approaching the process the correct way, just like Allen, taking it seriously and acting like a pro. They both appear to know that getting drafted is just the beginning and the real work is ahead of them. Not only are they saying the right things, everything coming out of OBD says they're putting in the work as well.
  9. That would make sense, especially if you think about him signing with his old DC where he can go back to what he used to do.
  10. The analytic guys LOVE Tyrod and his low int numbers. silva trashed McDermott after he benched Tyrod and said Sean was putting himself above the team. It's fine to side with analytics, but silva takes the Buffalo pessimism to a weird level. He recently called them the worst run organization in football. Had he said from 2000-2016, it would be hard to argue to hard against him. Now they have owners willing to spend whatever they need, a front office that has people going up for GM jobs elsewhere and are highly regarded, and what looks like a promising young coach. I don't see it.
  11. Decent piece on Lotulelei with a quote that stood out to me. http://buffalonews.com/2018/06/07/despite-hefty-contract-bills-lotulelei-is-ok-with-not-being-a-star/ As always, a new player mentions the process, one eleventh, or earning the right to play. And the quote that was interesting to me. I'm not sure what exactly was going on in Carolina, but it doesn't sound like he was enjoying himself and maybe wasn't giving 100%. It's interesting that he followed his old D coordinator, you might think he was part of the problem, but I assume that isn't the case. I hate saying, "I hope this millionaire athlete can stay motivated," but I try to catch myself, they are just people after all. God knows I could stand to be more motivated at work. Anyway, hopefully we can see him come in and play well. I doubt he puts up more than 3-5 sacks, but he could have a much bigger impact than his stats show if he plays at a high level.
