  1. Beane has been pretty forward thinking when it comes to contract structuring for a win-now team. We have two long term deals on the books that could see diminishing value. One is Von Miller, who has an out after 3 years. One would hope we get 2-3 strong years out of him. After that, it’s year to year, and if we part ways after Year 3, we have some dead cap in Years 4 & 5, but nothing unmanageable. The other is Stefon Diggs. However, Diggs playing style lends himself to a long, productive career.. and the likeliest worst case scenario is that we have an overpaid stud slot WR as he gets later into the contract years. As far as other moves made, or potentially made, remember that Beane locked Allen down with what is already looking to be a team friendly deal for a Top QB… and it doesn’t even kick in until this year. He still has the proverbial “Ace up his sleeve” in the ability to restructure Allen’s deal at any time. Next off-season could be the first real point we see the effects of a top heavy roster should we have to let Edmunds, Poyer or Knox walk… but with the $$$ flowing into the league, how much the players truly like it here, and Beane at the helm.. I’m not assuming anything when it comes to who we can or can’t sign anymore.
  2. As of right now, no.. This question probably reads to most as "If the Bills don't, at least, make the Super Bowl, would you consider moving on from McDermott?" Of course, if the season goes off the rails, sure.. but we saw today, not one absence from a team event to be there for the community and honor those killed... McDermott is a leader of men, and I'm confident he leads us to Super Bowl win(s).
  3. I think it's pretty obvious the weather is a factor. Specifically, the weather last year. Just ridiculous what the home slate was dealt. Can't really expect a QB to kill at home when over half the games are poor weather games, and even worse... heavy wind games.
  4. Best QB in the NFL. Strongest arm in the NFL. Pass Offense elite. If Diggs or Davis go down, we run the Ravens Offense? Thanks, i hate it.
  5. It does, but the “pass catchers” term was in response to questions about Outside WR Depth. Grouping all the weapons together doesn’t change the fact that there is no proven outside WR depth behind Diggs & Davis. Diggs is top 5. Davis has the ability to be a top tier WR, but this year is where he’ll prove it. Crowder is a very good slot WR. That’s a Top 10 trio dependent upon Davis being the guy we all think he is. We probably have the best slot depth in the league with McKenzie and Shakir. For a team that throws the ball so much, it’s still concerning that the current answer for outside WR depth is 1) Kumerow and/or Stevenson 2) Moving a slot WR outside 3) Flexing Howard and Cook outside. Just seems like a very patchwork approach to outside WR3 on a pass heavy team, but hey.. this team has earned my trust so I’ll try not to be too annoying about this concern ha.
  6. “pass catchers” is definitely going to become the most annoying term of the off-season.
  7. Watch Mina Kimes talk football for five seconds and then watch Kay Adams. Kay Adams is girl next door cute and good at moving the convo along.
  8. Yea, I don’t think you can really count the season opener as a typical TNF Game. It’s going to be a completely different atmosphere, and obviously neither team is coming off a game 4 days prior.
  9. The schedule to start the season is tough. Was thinking we can just bring Tre White back slowly, but him being ready to start the season would he massive. Either way, him staying healthy is far more important than rushing him back. Kaiir, Taron and Dane will have their hands full Week 1 against Stafford/Kupp/Robinson/Jefferson if White isn’t ready to start the season. Same thing Week 3 with Miami and Hill/Waddle, but Tennessee (2) and Baltimore (4) don’t exactly have a ton of ammo in the WR passing game. Also glad we don’t open with Miami, so we can get a glimpse of their new offense and how they plan to use that speed.
  10. Schedule makers would be wise to put Russ and Kyler in primetime early season.. Nobody wants to watch those two struggle after the mid-point.
  11. Oh, I’m not worried about this year. I’m talking about having a developmental prospect on the roster who can eventually become TE2.
  12. I’d feel a lot more comfortable at TE if Wydermyer beats out Sweeney. Sweeney had a chance this past year, specifically Jax, and was a disaster. Last year of his deal.. he doesn’t seem to show TE2 potential.
  13. Is Oweh a bust? Seems weird to make that comment regarding a late 1st in Rousseau and a 2nd in Basham. If people want to make judgments about Epenesa, valid.. but it’s way too early for the other two.
  14. We're basically adding three high end pieces in Von Miller, Kaiir Elam and Tre White to the Defense that finished the year. Also upgraded the DT room with a true run stuffer and more talent in the rotational guys. DE room, outside of Von & Shaq, is comprised of 3 guys who are all at the point where big jumps are expected. Should 1 or 2 of them make that jump... this Defense will be absolutely dominant. I've been pretty consistent that we are investing way too much in the Defense at the expense of the Offense... and I do still feel that way while looking at an OL that's decent, but could use another piece or two and the lack of a true Outside WR3, but I have to admit that this Defense - on paper - looks absolutely insane.
