    I think carving out a 20+ year coaching career out of being a McD yes man is less likely than maybe he has done something right.  Von Miller has nothing but praise for him.  If making up narratives on "a hunch" is your thing then don't let me get in the way.

    Von Miller has effusive praise for the cafeteria workers.

    You'd be starting completely over defensively with that hire. Everyone complaining about wasting Josh's window - you're talking a 2-3 year transition from a personnel standpoint with a move like that.

    A new hire would certainly run a similar scheme, that's McD's style, he's not all of a sudden going 3-4.  Seems like the play calling is more of the issue- and a lack of aggressiveness.

    Payton turned Brees into a HOFer. 

     

    Sean McDermott is turning Josh Allen into Dan Marino 2.0.

     

    Be honest, do you think Brees and Josh Allen are the same, talent-wise?

    QB "talent" for me is always hard to quantify.  How would you compare Josh vs. Brady talent wise?

  4. Josh Allen is good.  I don't want to hear anything beyond that until he at least wins the conference.  Not many "elite" QB's go 6 six years in without at least winning the conference.

     

    We can make all the excuses we want but an elite big money QB needs to elevate those around him.  How are our current weapons and offensive line any different than last years playoffs when Josh was other worldly?

     

    I'm done giving a rat's ass about hurdles or backyard circus plays.  Learn how to run an efficient on-schedule offense like the one that just ran us out of our own barn with 3 backup lineman and a hobbled center.  This far into a career I have my doubts much will change. 

     

    I think we're the Yankees.  Racking up "exciting" regular season wins with the long ball.  But when things get tight in the postseason the high-variance approach isn't suited to make a run.

    The thing for me is not only are they missing 3 offensive linemen, but one of the starters they aren’t missing is bad.  It’s not like Miami who had Connor Williams and terron armstead playing last week. Volson is probably the worst player on that offensive line when they’re all healthy. 

    And it’s not only the individual players, but the communication in a loud and hostile playoff environment.  Should be really tough on them

    Maybe you could actually show the injury report if you're going to start a thread on it? 

     

    So no Miller, no Hyde, no Crowder, a questionable Phillips.

    In other words, exactly the same as last week; and it's the best in a quite a while?

     

    I think your reporting skills need polished up a bit.:D

     

     

     

     

    Do you see the game designations?  I haven't yet

    The neutral site thing is was is throwing me for a loop. Otherwise I’d be confident to wait it out. 
     

     

    If you can't get them at face value as a ST holder, or if they do happen to release any to the public, waiting until gameday is probably you best bet on the resale market.

    If it ends up Bills/Chiefs in Atlanta, I expect prices to go down. There are a ton of folks in Buffalo who bought tickets but havent even booked flights or requested off work yet. When reality hits that they wont be able to travel, they'll want to move the tickets.

    In my opinion demand will far outpace the supply outlined in this scenario.

    Anybody have thoughts on what will happen to ticket prices the next few days?

     

    Just based on the trajectory of Bills, Bengals, and Chiefs playoff tickets the last few weeks I think they’ll drop significantly. 
     

    Or does anybody think they’ll go up? 

    Generally they drop up to kickoff.

     

    Personally I don't think that will be the case for this potential game.  It's a neutral site championship game, next closest thing to a superbowl.

    I think the only way McKenzie sees any burn is in gadget situations. With Beasley back, I think the slot is his for the rest of the playoffs. 

    We'll see.

     

    They clearly like McKenzie in certain situations and I think he can run away from CIN's limited athletes.  Looks like their dime corner will be out as well.

    It's not bulletin board material tho. There isnt a pro in the room that would be shocked or somehow more motivated by what he said.

     

    It means nothing to our or any players. And shouldnt mean anything to the fans.

    You must not know how pro athletes think.  They look for any potential slight to use as fuel.  I guarantee they are very aware of Mixon an Boyd's comments as well.

     

    There's a reason the Bills, and most other teams, are very careful and complimentary in their comments to the press.

    WRT specifically Burrow's quote: Nor should he.

     

    Not sure why anyone would be surprised by the QB of the team saying that. It isnt a crazy statement or even bulletin board material. Everyone who is playing wants/expects to win.

     

    Joey B is all good in my book. He isnt one of the bad guys.

    They all feel that way.  Most just aren't dumb enough to say it.  The proper response is something like- "they're a great team, we're going to have to play well."
