  1. Last time Brady had a prototypical #1 was Moss, right? Also I agree that Cooks doesn't fit the bill. I think that having 4-5 good weapons is better than having 1-2 elite weapons and 3-4 average/below average weapons. The problem with those elite players is the money they command. But if we can land a #1 in the draft and pay him a rookie salary for 5 years while filling out the roster with good veteran weapons, that's a plus. Also, look at the Hoodie and how he gameplans for other teams. His defense always focuses on doing 2 things: they set the edge, and they take away your number 1 weapon. He makes his teams immune to his very own brand of poison by not relying on elite weapons. Edelman is good but not elite. Elite WRs are over 6 feet tall, faster than he is, and catch balls just as well. Gronk is (was?) elite, but once teams started to focus on him Brady just spread the ball around to his other good weapons, and they intentionally used Gronk as a decoy more and more. ON THE FLIP SIDE, however, is the fact that each NFL team has a limited roster and can only field 11 players at once. You still want elite talent to put your team over the edge on at least one side of the ball that your opposing team has to gameplan for, whether it be an elite pass rusher, shut down corner, or offensive weapon.
  2. Since this has yet to be answered after 2 pages of people circle jerking about rock and roll or metal, I'll just quote a comment from the comment section. He’s smiling and dancing to distract you from the horrible stuff behind him, just like how entertainment distracts us from whats really happening in our societies.

    Bills sign C Spencer Long to 3 year deal

    I see. That gives this signing some perspective.

    That's a bit high for a depth player, isn't it?

    Which non-Bills draft pick stung the most?

    In retrospect, the trade up to get Losman that cost us a chance at Aaron Rodgers is only rivaled by passing on Brady on 2001. At the time of draft day, however, I wanted Orakpo over Maybin and Ngata over Whitner. I didn't know enough about Gronk at the time to really want him when we picked Troup (although I wasn't a fan of the Troup pick at the time either).
  7. As much as I love his receiving abilities, I don't think he's a good fit for Buffalo. If he was a good fit, a trade like this might have some merit.

    What's the best name in the upcoming draft?

    This thread reminds of that joke of a safety.
  9. Hmm. I'm reading about it now on its Wiki page and I'm surprised to see that there is actually a lot of debate on the historical impact of the treaty. Alluding to your point, "Finally, Evans argued that it is untrue that Versailles caused the premature end of the Republic, instead contending that it was the Great Depression of the early 1930s that put an end to German democracy. He also argued that Versailles was not the "main cause" of National Socialism and the German economy was "only marginally influenced by the impact of reparations".
  10. Tbf, the war reparations from WWI were a major strain on the German economy. Some in Britain believed that their abandonment would bring about an economic boom. The harsh terms of the Versailles Treaty practically guaranteed eventual political turmoil in Germany in the 20s and 30s.
