  1. If it’s my pick here is the Bills next QB

    I think, as @hapless said earlier, trading up get a QB is dependant on a lot of things, and our draft position is clearly not conducive to getting a top5 pick. In all reality, Rosen and darnold shouldn't even be on our radar, as they will be gone top5 (most likely 1 and 2) and the top 10 packs this year are: 1 browns 2 Giants 3 colts 4 browns (again) 5 broncos 6 Jets 7 bucs 8 bears 9 raiders 10 sanfran Looking at that list I see: (Definitely taking a QB) -Browns taking a QB (either at 1 or trading down and taking a QB @4) -Jets (Not taking a QB) Bucs, bears, raiders, sanfran That leaves 4 "wild cards" in the mix for possible picks: -browns other pick. If they go darnold/Rosen at #1 they might trade #4 to drop and stockpile, even if they don't, that is spot where no QB is taken because they won't take two QBs (although it is the browns...) -Giants. Nobody has any idea. If they like Davis Webb enough, they might roll the dice to groom him as Elis heir. If not, they might go QB, but that's a lot of money to pay a backup to groom him. -colts. Total wild card. Depends on luck's shoulder. -broncos. I believe they are going hard on cousins, Smith, or even keenum. They are in "win now" mode, only a QB away again. If they don't land cousins though, they still might draft a youngster to go behind Smith/kenum. 11 dolphins 12 Bengals 13 Redskins 14 Packers 15 cards 16 Ravens 17 chargers 18 Hawks 19 cowboys 20 lions Our only threats from that group to trade up would be: -redskins -cardinals (though they may go after cousins/Smith) I would be happy moving up to get Allen, although that would probably require getting up to #5, and hoping the Jets don't jump to #4, with the broncos being set at QB with cousins, otherwise the will take a QB. If darnold and Rosen go 1-2 or 1-4 then i don't see Allen getting past broncos/Jets. At that point I don't think anybody else is worth going all in for, as the rest are reaching.
  2. Is having a franchise quality QB essential for

    This. Do you need a QB chucking 400yards? No. Do you need a QB who can consistently make throws WHEN NEEDED? Yes. Christ look at super bowl winning QBs in last 20 years The only subpar winners who stand out are: Trent dilfer and Brad Johnson. They had all time great defenses. All the QBs were either elite, had an elite hot streak (flacco, Eli twice) or were game managers who MADE THROWS WHEN NEEDED. I have never been confident Tyrod could be "that guy" to nail a 8 yard curl on 3rd and 7 when you're down in the 4th.

    60% of the time it works, every time.

    Sorry hap. My Android corrected OC to HC. I should have proofread lol
  5. You have $100million contract. You show up and do your job. Voice your opinion to management. If you don't like it there, play out the deal and leave. Nobody is holding a gun to your head. I understand "kids like him" perfectly. He wants to run the show and not be held accountable for anything he says or does. He wants to blame everybody else for his problems. Nobody forced him to drag race. Nobody forced him to smoke and violate his workplace drug policy multiple times. Nobody forced him to show up late to a GAME. These are on him. Period. Even if he didn't like the job situation he was in, he made no effort to rectify it, other than to act out like a whiny baby. Grow up Marcel.
  6. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Agreed As said before I'm not giving daboll credit for pulling the QB on a team run by King Saban. Just like I'm not bashing daboll for his poor OC stint in the NFL a decade ago. I like the hire.

    Lukewarm milquetoast with a side of vanilla
  8. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    I would have handed the ball off too if my QB roster between my 3 NFL gigs consisted of: Jp losman Brady Quinn (twice) Seneca Wallace Colt McCoy (post multiple shoulder injuries) Matt Cassell A one legged Brian hoyer Derek Anderson I feel you. I'm with you here 100%. Especially with a guy like saban who rules the roost.
  9. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Based on sabans track record of being a control freak, I'll say that yeah, I think it was saban, the king of the crimson Tide. We will never know though, since it worked out. If saban made the decision, it wouldn't surprise me bc he's the king there. If daboll made it, do you think saban will allow him to take the credit? I don't. I think that if they still lost, or the idea crashed and burned, saban would have thrown daboll under the bus
  10. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Agreed. Hopefully daboll wants to be and MCD gives him some leeway. MCD is pure vanilla, slow and steady. Is he the guy to get to to the promised Land? Nah I don't think so. Is he a good choice to steady the ship and build a foundation? I think so.
  11. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Ok I can give you that. BB was fired from Cleveland though. Fired. Somebody above him thought he failed. (Not saying they were correct) He took them to 11-5 and the playoffs, then they regressed, on all fronts, and was fired after the move was announced. I'm just saying even if you thought he was decent with the browns, he obviously had improved since then. I would say that HOPE daboll has learned and improved since his HC stint, hoping he learned a bunch under BB on the pats
  12. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Yep. Can't really get aggressive on the racetrack when you're driving a stock Honda fit and chasing Ferraris. Just gotta hope enough Ferraris crash, taking each other out while jockeying for position, that the Fit can be the #8 vehicle to finish the race, while the other 8 wrecked. (Which is exactly what we did. Finished the laps, worried about ourselves, and let the other contenders crash and burn before the checkered flag) Now we are trying to throw a little more horsepower under the hood
  13. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Well he did continue to have a career, so that's something, right? BB failed in Cleveland. Everybody since Shula has failed in Miami. Christ other than "regular season Midas touch" Andy Reid everybody fails in KC also. See a pattern here? Coaching is generally a crapshoot. Bad coaches catch lightning in a bottle sometimes. Good coaches get handed bad hands sometimes. All you can do is look at his track record (which overall has ups and downs), but most recently is up, and hope for the best. If I had to put a number on it, I'm about 70% excited about this, and happy we made the call and got things settled before the draft.
  14. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Tyrod is not a good QB. That was my point. We were a running team. Partly because mccoy is a boss. Partly because Tyrod isn't good.
  15. Brian Daboll hired as new OC

    Except the bills were -32nd in pass attempts -30th in pass yards -27th in passing TD -30th in passing 1st downs Lynn didn't throw the ball because he know tyrod was a tire fire.
