    Amazon changed their music app. They stated that they added music. But they ALSO no longer allow you to play songs,  or albums or Playlist without shuffling and them adding songs. In addition you no longer have unlimited skips or the ability to fast forward or rewind.  In order to do this you now have to sign up for Amazon music UNLIMITED  which is an extra 8.99 a month. It's shameful, like they need any more money.

     

    I've had Amazon Music Unlimited for years so I wondered why I can still do those things.

    Sort of sexist I agree.

     

     

     

    Not really.

     

    "Bastard" refers to males or females born outside of marriage, although today it's mostly applied to males.

    "B word" refers to a female dog but is more commonly applied almost exclusively to women.

    Very well said op

     

    I actually like the adversity and the fact we're not blowing out teams still. I think it'll be a blessing in disguise come January. 

    Shoot it wasn't even a week ago ppl were questioning if we'd even make the playoffs 🤣

     

    This is exactly how I feel.  The Bills will be a better team in January for winning tight games in November and December.   My sense is that good teams that have to scrap to get into the playoffs or to get high seedings seem to do better in the playoffs that teams that coast in.

    No one has a defender that can match up with him. He’s an even better Gronk

     

    He's also more durable.   He hasn't been injured enough to miss many games.   Gronk missed a lot of games.

    It seems that every year you hear "watch out for the Chargers!", yet every year they underperform to the expectations.

     

    Same old Chargers ... going back to the early 2000s when they were loaded with talent.  They made the playoffs then but they never did much in the playoffs.   Now, they certainly have good talent but they don't make the playoffs because they continue to find ways to lose games.

    Yes, easily.

    And Zay Jones is the Hero, who woulda thunk?  Guess he’s finally found a “real” QB who can unleash him…..….…

    ………I still think Trevor Lawrence looks like a horse, though

     

    Lawrence really does have a "horse face"!

     

    I'm watching Red Zone, and they're flipping between KC/Rams and Arizona/Chargers ... and the team colors are almost the same: KC and Arizona in red and Rams and Chargers in gold and blue.   It's a bit confusing!

    Why did the Jaguars do a squib kick?

     

    Doug Pederson is very fortunate. He nearly caused his team to lose after a miraculous comeback.

     

    I think it was to waste some time.   That was the criticism of McDermott last year ... the Bills didn't squib kick against KC in the playoff game.   Two or three fewer seconds and the game would have been a Bills win.

    For sure, but as fans, you should be able to call out the bad without being crucified. 

     

    If you come on a Bills fan site and have nothing positive to post, being "crucified" by other posters is the least you should expect.  You could easily be suspended or banned by the moderators.  

     

    Words have consequences, whether they're spoken or written.   Once said or posted, they can't be taken back.  That's true if you're in politics or in the media or in business or in a relationship ... or you're a fan of a sports team.   "Free speech" guarantees that you can say what you want about the government and the government can't come after you.   It doesn't mean that private citizens or businesses or organizations have to accept some horse's ass spouting trash or stupidity without taking action against said horse's ass.   If you lie, don't whine when you're called a liar.   If you call people vile names, don't cry foul when you get called worse back.   If you send disgusting emails to co-workers, don't pretend to be a martyr when you get fired. 

     

    If you don't want to be "crucified", then don't spout opinions to people you know won't like them.  :doh: :doh:  :doh:

    Well how about Kurt Warner, Roger Staubauch, George Blanda, Bart Starr was a 10th round pick. I guess probably better odds then 1 in a million.

     

    Staubach, Blanda and Starr were all drafted 50 or 60 years ago.   Warner is a baby ... he came out of college less than 30 years ago.    Even Brady was drafted more than 20 years ago.

    He had two td passes dropped on one first half series (one admittedly a lot harder catch than the other) and a te who couldn’t toe-tap before falling down on a good pass. The game is a lot different if people catch the ball, although i suppose you could say the same about gabe davis’s  drop early on. Brisset played well.

     

    Brisette generally plays well -- and puts up good numbers -- but just not good enough to win games because he can't seem to make clutch plays.  His failed QB sneak on 4th down is an example.

    The lack of general geographic knowledge of NYS continues, this time from CNN…

     

    “Nearly 6 feet of snow has fallen across portions of western New York – numbers considered historic for the area, the National Weather Service said. The town of Natural Bridge, just east of Watertown, has recorded 70.9 inches Saturday morning, which is just shy of 6 feet. Watertown has seen 57.4 inches over the last two days.”

     

    Never once have I known anyone to consider Watertown in Western NY. But most think Westchester County is Upstate.

     

    This isn't something that just affects New York.  The US is a large country ... too large for most people to know the geography of each state unless they have a reason to do so, like they've visited a place or they're from that place etc.  I would say that, though, that if your job involves maps, that you ought to be able to read one well enough to accurately locate places on it.

    Just because those teams, Dallas, Minnesota, and San Francisco, could make it to the Super Bowl out of the NFC doesn't mean the NFC is better at the top.  All of those teams, plus the Eagles would be underdogs to the Bills or Chiefs.  So, no, the NFC is not better than the AFC at the top, they just have more parity. 

     

    Agree.  The Eagles might be on a par with the Bills and Chiefs but the Cowgirls, Vikes and Niners are on about the same level as the Ravens and Titans.

    No moves when our safeties are hurting is a bad look for Beane. I was high on Johnson in the preseason but whenever he plays big plays happen.

     

    Beane needs to add a safety or face the consequences if safety is a problem later in the season. It’s his risk to take. It’s a dumb risk. Adding safety depth won’t cost much.

     

    You are assuming that the guys already on the Bills aren't nearly as good as players on that other teams are looking to move.  I'm not sure that's a safe assumption.  "Adding safety depth" could cost an awful lot in the future if the depth player isn't better than the young safeties that the Bills already have on their roster or PS.

     

    I don't pretend to any expertise, so I'm good with whatever roster moves Beane makes or doesn't make.   He's proven he knows his stuff.

    Previous two years I did not agree on Beane doing nothing at the deadline and we lost both years to KC.  This season I again plead to either add a speed/power RB or perhaps depth at the safety position.  This is not even about if I like Singletary,  you need quality depth and Moss should not even be on this team. Cook is not ready and needs to get stronger before you can really count on him as a runner between the tackles.  I third or 4th rounder gets it done. Same people saying were fine were saying the same thing two previous years and then cried after losing to KC.  

     

    You're assuming that a RB and/or safety better than we currently have are available at a reasonable price.   There may not be.  :doh:

    He definitely needed some polishing, but he also made some guys look silly with his throws and runs. Dude was a gamer and if he could be more consistent, there was incredible potential 

     

    TBH, statistically, JA was trash in his first and second years.   Some of that was on him, but a lot of it was on poor coaching in his rookie season (as in lack of an experienced QB coach) and a poor supporting cast.  What didn't show up in his stats was his willingness to do anything to win as well as his continual improvement early on.  His leadership was on display from the get-go, too.  He played considerably better after sitting out his elbow injuring, which obviously had given him time to observe and figure out the pro game better.  He was considerably better at the beginning of his second season than he'd been as a rookie, and he improved all through his sophomore season even though his stats didn't blow anybody away.

     

    A lot of QBs have the physical skills but not the mental traits to be successful.  Some have the mental traits but not the physical ability.  Others have both physical and mental skills but not the leadership (ie, "it factor") and vice versa.   Allen has it all!

    Coach's son was the OG scumbag on that team. He was busy scumbagging when Frank Clark was still in junior high.  In 2007 Britt Reid was convicted on a felony gun charge for pulling a handgun on a motorist in an incident in PA where he also pled guilty to simple assault and possession of marijuana and cocaine. He's a heckuva guy I know I was shocked when he did something else stupid that ultimately hurt somebody. Heckuva family. Character starts at the top and Andy Reid STILL cannot babysit my children. I don't know how he can look grown men in the face and use words like discipline and accountability without getting laughed out of the room.

     

    Obviously your perfect parents raised a perfect child who has never done anything illegal, stupid or dangerous.

    I know its not exactly a popular pick around here but its reasonable NE is a wildcard when all is said and done. Bellicheck kinda feasts on middling squads(and inexperienced/journeyman QBs) and the entire NFL other than like 4 teams are that

     

    I agree.  Belichick has a good defense, and Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe are pretty decent QBs for Belichick, and Belichick sets them up with his game plans.  I think the Pats' offense is considerably better than the Jets and their defense is better than the Fish.   That's a recipe to make the playoffs.

    I will bet anyone on this forum any amount of money that the Jets will not make the playoffs.

     

    12-5? Good Lord.

     

    There's only one threat in this division. I've said this all year. It's the team that Bill Belichick coaches. The rest are jokes.

     

    Agreed.   Belichick has a good defense, and he has two credible QBs that he knows how to put in situations that maximize the offense's chance of success.   Contrary to what some think, NE's success over the last two decades wasn't solely because of Brady.

    Jets are going to make the playoffs.  They are without question the 3rd, 4th or 5th best team in the AFC.  There is a big drop off after the Bills and Chiefs, but there is a good argument the Jets are the 3rd best team in the AFC.  

     

     

    Do you know how many playoff berths have been decided on the last week of the season in the last five years?   In fact, the Bills broke their playoff drought in 2017 when the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Baltimore Ravens on a last second TD throw from Andy Dalton to Tyler Boyd.  It was on 4th and long I think.  

     

    Game six is way to early to be predicting playoff berths for most NFL teams.

    Based on what? They've won four games through smoke and mirrors.

     

    We see starts like this from paper tigers literally every NFL season.

     

    Any Bills fan old enough to remember the most of the Bills teams between 2001 and 2016 can cite numerous times the Bills looked the class of the AFC a few games into the season.   In 2003, pundits were predicting the Bills to go to the Super Bowl three or four games into the season.  In 2008, the Bills went 5-2 in the first 7 games and finished up 7-9.   Another year, they went 6-2 or something in the first 8 games and then collapsed.

     

    IMO, it's much more likely that the Jests finish below the Pats and Fish than above them in the standings.
