  1. Solid signing. Probably means Von isn't ready until a month or two into the season. Miller, Rousseau, Floyd, Epenesa, Basham? Does that look aboot right? Unless Shane Ray miraculously steals a spot.
  2. I remember in 2020 they had to deal with a lot of players shuffling in and out on defense and it forced them to mix things up. The numbers weren't where they were for like '21 and '22 but they were definitely more aggressive. They mixed up the looks a lot more, more blitzing, more stunts, etc. They gave up some plays but they also seemed to cause more pressure, sacks, and turnovers. I hope it's more of that, like, let them get after it as opposed to keep everything in front of you and don't give up the big play.
  3. The comments, good lord lmao. If this guy doesn't rack up 60 sacks, 30 forced fumbles, 90 tackles for loss and generally becomes Aaron Donald and Reggie White morphed into one then this board gonna implode.
  4. Hadn't he been dating Brittany since hike school? First time the dude has been free to date around in a long time. Let him do his thing. He's focused on foosball! I have a family member with a small business that was patronized by Brittany sometime last year. She said she was a bit much. Came off real high maintenance and had some unreasonable expectations.
  5. He was just never as involved as people expected. Last season he averaged about four targets a game with two or three catches for around 26-27 yards. He took over in that game against the Pats in 2021 but never really came close to that type of performance again. He seems like a nice dude but in the NFL he's probably seen as just another guy.
  6. This was my thought too. The dude was really good in his first few years. The type of player you'd want in free agency...the Bills just signed him about four or five years too late. Sometimes I felt like it was fair to question his heart and how much he bought into the culture. Too many times we'd see him get beat and then just stand there like, "My bad, homie!" At the end of the day he's probably like a lot of other players at his age. His mind and spirit are telling him he can still go while his body been trying to tell him since like 2017, "Yo, we done! Go sit down before you get another quarterback squished by a 330 lb. DT."
  7. I remember seeing Preston Williams have a few moments in past seasons and he looked like a guy to keep an eye on. We'll see what happens.
  8. Mountains outta molehills...it's like these knuckleheads have incentives in their contracts. The more crap you make up the better the holiday bonus or something. Buncha turds.
  9. Surely the most judgmental spouting off in here are all Adonis types...
  10. Hey pal. You saw some of the other tough guys on the forum. "Nuff talkin! Go win sumthin'!" Tough guy!!! Very tough. In fact, so tough we need to spell it "tuff."
  11. Dawkins - Bates - Morse - Torrence - Brown, I guess, I dunno. I'm not an offensive lineologist.
  12. Wasn't it just a few years ago a group figured out like, a really good algorithm for the schedule? It was really balanced and fair and the NFL was like, "Lol eat s#!t." Sports and their fear of technological evolution....
  13. I know the players loved him and in the regular season he was solid. And keep in mind, the defensive plan allows for yardage and then they tighten up in their own end to force field goals. But there were some situations that just seemed inexplicable. I don't like to relive those moments. It just felt like when the pressure was on and they really needed it, he just didn't get it done. The Bills knew they had to move on and they did it in the most polite way they could.
  14. Hey, all I know is last time the Bills selected a player from Tulane it was all world megastar quarterback JayPee Loseman!
  15. The s#!t some of you think about.... good lord
  16. Teammates are constantly calling the guy one of the hardest workers on the team. I don't know if anyone remembers the story but during the playoffs, Von brought in a replica Lombardi and set it up in the locker room with a sign that said, "You said you'd do anything for it." Gabe, who had just finished practice, saw the sign, turned around and went back into the fieldhouse and spent another hour on the JUGS machine. His ankle really limited him last year. He couldn't run more than a few specific routes and there were a couple bummer drops. But I think he's a solid player and if he's healthy all season we should see a lot more from him. He definitely gets way too much crap on this forum.
  17. What's it look like? It appears to be a collection of absurdly large human beings. They'll pick the ones who are best at not letting other absurdly large humans get past them. I really don't know how it's going to shake out. Lotta people seem to think McGovern is slotted in as a starter from day one but I'd assume he'll have to beat out Ryan Bates, who I think does better on the left but that's also McGovern's natural spot. Torrence is a high end draft pick who's gonna get plenty of chances to win the RG spot. Is Bates odd man out and plays a backup role this year and maybe takes over for Morse next season? Dawkins and Brown are the tackles. The competitions to watch will be for both guard spots.
  18. I dunno, I get a good vibe from the guy. I think he's gonna be fine. People forget that Milano also converted from safety. Seems like he has a pretty good feel for the game and he flies to the ball. They'll coach him up and I wouldn't be surprised if he sees a fair bit of playing time.
  19. They love it when you call him Big Poona...
  20. Hey, I got one right, haha. I was looking at the remaining prospects last night and focused in on Shorter as someone the Bills would appear to like. Then I saw that they visited with him. His skill set really seems to suit their offense. They'll just have to hope he's able to stay healthy because his entire college career he dealt with injury and missed time every season. Also, can't wait to hear the broadcast morons on gameday: Jim: "And there's Shorter with the catch, and that's enough for a first down." Tony: "And let me tell ya, Jim, shorter he isn't! This guy is a specimen!"
  21. Solid pick. I like it. To celebrate, I made not one, but two PB&Js.
  22. I think I'm just looking forward to the inevitable meltdown some folks are gonna have no matter who the Bills draft. Just remember, this stuff is supposed to be fun. If the names they announce next weekend make you wanna throw things and punch holes in the wall then maybe take a minute to ponder if football is, I dunno, your thing? After that we'll round up the expert board analysis on Beane...who will surely have failed miserably at his job according to the message board savants of the world. Who's that one player you really hope they don't pick? I hope they pick that guy.
  23. I believe you're reading into this way too much. If you watched the press conference you see Josh flash a big smile when they ask about Diggs.
  24. All I know is when McD has taken over the play calls periodically during his tenure here, it feels like the defense plays with a bit more of an edge. It also seems like he's more willing to take risks and call some more unique things. I know it was out of necessity in 2020 when they had to switch things up defensively, but it looked like they were more in an attack mode rather than a "sit back and keep it in front of us" mode. I think it's a needed change. Les Frazier is a great coach and the players love him. I just feel like he kind of hit his ceiling here. Didn't see a lot of different wrinkles or unique things from his defense over the years. And unfortunately, in the big moments, it really seems like he goes all deer in the headlights and things fall apart. I'm looking forward to seeing what Sean can do. Should be interesting at the very least.
