  1. Cheers, and send my best to your father-in-law.  Father-in-lawing can be a terrible affliction.

      It definitely can be!!

    Eric Moulds... What happened to him?

    Purify yourselves in the waters of lake Minnetonka. I wonder if he posts on a phone that has an "ellipsis button" My father in law loves the ellipsis in his texts... Old man's posts look just like his texts, random ellipsis through

    Confession time at TBD

    Marrying into that family isn't a sin. You're like a sleeper agent so person dude.

    I wanted to draft Matt Leinart so badly... I was so excited when we signed him in 2013, even though he had already proven he was useless... I wanted Austin too!! (Actually still did this off-season... Although that's probably more to do with out terrible roster of receivers than my old residual Austin fanboyism)

    Josh Allen coins #SabresMafia

    Agreed. I like the kid, but let's see how he plays first. I mean, at least this is better than him going Johnny football or something in the off-season
  6. Def agree. A lot of people had him as an under the radar very good FA when he became available. He was behind clinton-dix on their depth chart so I'm not surprised they let Hyde walk, they are both very good, so tough call for the Packers.

    NFL planning to suspend Jameis Winston for 3 games

    Exactly. Which is also why he throws a ton of ints and is wildly inconsistent from game to game. His entire skillset involves chucking it to a reasonably close area, and hoping that his receiver gets it. Sometimes they do, sometimes the DBs do.

    Was thinking exactly the same thing.

    Doug Whaley Has Landed a New Job

    Are we talking about Whaley or Russ??

    Doug Whaley Has Landed a New Job

    I don't disagree with you. My point was he was a "boom or bust" guy with almost all his moves. Nothing was really conservative. The problem was he "busted" much more often than he "boomed" and really was clueless. I was just saying I respect when a guy goes "d*cks out"... Even if he crashes and burns.
  11. "He’s a 6-foot-2, 315-pound nose tackle that struggles to defend the run. According to PFF’s metrics, Lotulelei’s 11 run stops were fewer than all but five of 55 qualifying defensive tackles that played at least 190 run defense snaps. In 2016, he made just four – the fewest of any defensive linemen that played significant snaps in the NFL. Lotulelei ranked 50th of 69 defensive tackles in 2015, 21st of 73 in 2016 and 72 of 79 in 2017." https://billswire-usatoday-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/billswire.usatoday.com/2018/02/22/nfl-free-agency-buffalo-bills-star-lotulelei-panthers-draft/amp/?amp_js_v=a1&amp_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQECAE4AQ%3D%3D#referrer=https://www.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s&ampshare=https%3A%2F%2Fbillswire.usatoday.com%2F2018%2F02%2F22%2Fnfl-free-agency-buffalo-bills-star-lotulelei-panthers-draft%2F That's one I just saw when I googled his metrics. I'm optimistic he can turn it around, but not "omg amazing signing" optimistic

    Tough to get the ball too a guy when he's not on the field injured frequently. I bet EJ could have hit him on the bench with ease, especially if we put him in a tent 😁 Yeah Doug was a "go big or go home" guy. He had to go home though. Sometimes you hit home runs, sometimes you strike out. If you strike out too often, especially when it counts, you get benched. The guy wasn't afraid to take a risk. I respected that.
  13. So they've been great and won the SB every year? Some years teams are good, some years they are not. The Bills have not been good more often than not, especially lately. These predictions are made mostly using point differential from the previous season. A negative point diff is the hallmark of a team that isn't good, and I think only 2 teams with negative diffs made the playoffs, the Bills being one. This can be argued that it was skewed by a bad stretch (like the chargers and saints games), but every team has these, so it really evens out. The problem with using last year's negative diff is that it doesn't take into account any off-season changes to the teams, for better or worse, but in general, these point diff predictions are fairly accurate, though every year there are a couple of outliers, with the Bills being one last year. There is a precedent that has shown overachieving teams, like the bills last year, typically regress the following year. 3 wins is extreme negativity, but I wouldn't be surprised if they win 5. I also wouldn't be if they won 9.
  14. Agreed. I think we might take a step back on offense turnover wise, but more TDs could be a strong possibility, which is a good thing, and a net positive depending on how many we get. Biggest thing that people overlook though I think is all our "free agent upgrades" are big question marks. -aj mccarron doesn't need to be explained here, we all know his pros, cons, etc. -Vontae Davis was probably the #2 CB in the league in 2015. He missed all of 16 with an injury, and looked below average last year. Hopefully it was just a blip, but it's very concerning that he could just be done for, and if he plays like last year, he's actually a pretty big downgrade from Gaines. -Murphy hasn't played since 2016, and while I like the signing, and think he will be good, he's another question mark having missed last year -Star was very solid when he last played under McDermott, but almost all metrics had him as one of the worst DTs in football last year, but I'm optimistic that it was a scheme/ coaching issue, similar to Mario Williams under Rex. Again, I'm not being negative, I actually really like Davis, Murphy, and Star, and am optimistic they will all be upgrades over last year's players they replaced, but I'm tired of everybody acting like we signed jj Watt, Ray Lewis, and deion Sanders. (That last part wasn't directed at you btw Kirby)
