UDFA (2/8)



  1. I don't post on here much and i can't say i am a football guru when it comes to play calling and formations but I have some thoughts and concerns from an average football knowledge fan and die Hard Bills Fan so please hear me out. The WR position is a concern for me as it is improving all over the lease and that is where the money is. Our draft classes do not reflect that in recent years. I know we have Diggs but lets be honest that is it. When our offense started humming the past two years we also had a vet receiver as the number 2 or backup using Smoke for that roll and Sanders last year as a solid number two. That to me is what made Gabe Davis great as a solid 3. Gabe to me has those games where he either catches everything thrown at him or he drops everything thrown at him, you never know what you are going to get. At least with a veteran #2 we always had another option. This is one of the reasons i would sign OBJ now...not for this year its too late but for next year and draft a WR either in RD 1 or 2. That is would replenish our WR corps real fast just need to find that reliable slot guy then. Imagine Diggs OBJ Davis Shak (who seems to catch everything under the sun just needs to learn the slot position in this offense so Beasley coming back will be big just for that) and a round 1 or 2 pick Our receiver corps would go from a weak point this year to a strong point next year. With just signing OBJ and hopefully you hit on that draft pick but with OBJ here if we miss on the pick next year there is always 2024 and our receiver corps doesn't drop off. That is me. I am also glad and mad we signed Beasley. Glad for our young guys who need a savvy vet and mentor...but mad that Beasley hasn't been on our team all year long. He was kind of the glue that kept the offense going especially on third and short always knew where the soft spot was and Josh trusted him. It makes me wonder how the heck they are using I Mac in the slot. To me (and this is from an average fan who doesn't know how to watch film) it seems like they are always trying to get I Mac the ball while in motion for YAC yards instead of just having him use the speed as a threat and then sitting in the zone knowing that he will probably not get any YAC yards but picking up first downs. That is what Beasley did and we miss. I think if they used I Mac in that form his crossing patterns would be even more dynamic and unpredictable which looks to me like that is what they are now predictable always catching the ball going towards the sideline instead of in the middle of the field. I know this is long and I usually don't break it up into semi paragraphs but i am trying to do better. Thoughts...
  2. If it was up to me (thank god it is not) but I would keep 7 WR's and 3 TE's rather then 4/5 RB's. Keep Touchdown Jesus on the roster for Gunner on ST and another threat when they go 5 wide. Have T. Jones and R. Gilliam battle it out for the #4 RB/ST player. We get more value with an extra WR then we do a RB.
  3. I think the Steeler's might surprise this year. Always great defense, second year back Harris will be just fine and the Steeler's will play in a bunch of grind it out defensive battles this year. As for the Bengals, I put them in the same tear are the Steeler's. Not the top dog even in their own division and fighting for a wildcard spot with the Steeler's.
  4. Devon Achane RB Texas A&M. We have been looking for a speed back that can take it to the house. This is the man has elite speed that you can't teach... and it translates to the football field he had 118 yards rushing in the forth quarter when the defense was tired and his speed shined. This guy is a stud. He can also return kicks all done!!
  5. Just because he was a fan favorite doesn't mean he deserves to be on the Wall of Fame. The Wall of Fame is for iconic Bills Players with HOF credentials that might not hold up against the rest of the League as far as the Hall goes but does call for some well deserved recognition from the Bills organization like Darryl Talley, Kent Hull, Fred Smerlas, and Steve Tasker. Not Ryan Fitzpatrick.
  6. All SEC players at all positions of need. If his school is from the SEC I will take it. That is the best conference in football hands down. Maybe some late flyers in the later rounds. But rounds 1-4 all SEC.
  7. I will keep this short In round 1: Jameson Williams WR Ala. We have enough depth now to draft him late in the first. He is a top 10 talent that we don't have to rush back and the way WR are getting paid now it would be nice to pair him with Josh for the next 5 years. That will take Josh into the mid-late stages of his career. In round 2: Best CB available. I still know we are going to sign a veteran CB at some point (Beane always does) but we still need youth there. In round 3 or 4 draft: David Ojabo LB Michigan. first round talent that tour his ACL today at proday. Again we have enough depth and he would be in no hurry to return this year. I just have a feeling it is going to be hard for a draft pick later in the draft to make this team anyway so why not set us up for the next 4 to five years with the hurt guys.
  8. Looking at how McDermott handles his players during season and in game is sometimes questionable...don't you think? McKenzie fumbled the punt against Indy...yes it was bad...but everyone on the team seemed to be having a bad day during that one. Did that mean that McKenzie needed to be benched for that game and then on the IA list the following week. I don't think so, that is why McKenzie may be leaving us. Z. Moss fumbled the ball in 2020 against SF early in the game...yes it was on the goal line...but I don't think coach had to benched him for the rest of the game. D. Singletary had fumble problems in 2020 and early this year he seems to under utilize him until the end of the year...that is probably a bad example...but you get the point. Not to mention his in game management as a coach...he always preaches Super Bowl caliber to his players well maybe he needs to look in the mirror too. He is the head coach which means he is responsible for everything that goes on, on the field. Bad play calls by the Offence or Defense...on him. Weather or not to go for it on 4th down...on him. Communication on the side lines...on him. Questionable use of TO's during the game...on him. This one baffles me as a spectator and watching how other coaches use their time outs. He never uses his time outs to manage situations...(i.e. after we scored a go ahead TD with 13 seconds left. We still had one TO to burn, why not use it to calm the team down after the big play lets catch our breath and make sure everyone is on the same page on how to close out the game. Make sure Bass knows its a squib kick (trust but verify...leadership 101). Make sure everyone knows the situation K.C. has 10 seconds basically (less then 10 seconds with a squib kick/3 seconds or less for FG try) to get in FG range with 3 TO's at their disposal so cover the whole field. Instead he uses his TO on the second play on Defense to see what the Chiefs will do giving them more time to come up with a play. Not a Super Bowl Caliber moment for our coaching staff and it falls on McD. He is a great coach but not a great game manager. This might keep our own guys from resigning or it might scare potential FA's from coming here.
  9. I would say Malino is pretty good...wouldn't you. Taron Johnson is pretty good...Harry is pretty good too when not hurt....and Tre White yeah he sucks....kidding.
  10. Hopefully he will tell McDermott and Fraizer not to play prevent defense with 13 seconds left in the game.
  11. Watch Storm Duck...Great Name but has the build that McBeane and Co. love 6'5" corner 4.38 40 he would be a 3rd rounder or later.....
  12. Good Write Up!!! I will not bash Edmonds he does have his moments. If it were up to me I would get younger in the backup positions by cutting AJ and Tyler saving about 7.6 Mil in cap space. The one college guy who is a beast who may drop in the draft is Adam Anderson OLB GA. He may drop to a day two or three pick because he was accused of rape in 2020. His stats are beast though at 6'5" 4.39 40 at 230 pounds. I would do some serious character checks on this guy though before drafting him. The good thing now about our team is our locker room is solid and I think they can help a guy like this out. Great at rushing the passer. Brandon Smith LB Penn St. is another one who will go higher then Anderson IMO. Bigger at 245 ish lbs just as fast 4.40 40 can play inside and out. According to write up was better in pass coverage. Those are my two. I would use the money freed up to get a good CB2 and draft a lot of offense early.
