    How did you become a Bills fan?

    Grew up in WNY... It just happened. I love football and the Bills were the local team. My dad was a Steelers fan (raised in Pittsburgh) but tolerated the Bills. We moved when I was 14 but by then it was too late. I tried to explain to my wife the other day how it surpasses fandom and becomes almost a part of identity, or a part of who I am. I've never been an adult living in WNY but my connection via the Bills (and in a lot of ways, via other fans like you) makes that area feel like home. I get irrationally angry when I see idiots flaming the Buffalo area while I have almost no memories of it (at least memories that understand the social importance of location). I'd move back in a heartbeat if NY wasn't such a messed up state in general. I have flirted with the idea of changing allegiances, I feel like I have a good excuse between not living there and never seeing them be anything but terrible (became a fan in 2003) but I can't stop but return to the Bills. Even during the Rex era, which was probably as "done" as I've ever been with the Bills, my lack of interest led to me just not watching a lot of football and when I did watch, I still watched Bills games. All that to say, there's something in the blood...

    Clay Matthews signs with Rams

    Peter Schrager pegged this as a good fit before FA started.

    NFL.com Bucky Brooks 2019 Mock Draft Version 3.0

    I would love a trade back, or else Edge, DT, or TE. I don't mind OT, I'm just not sold on moving Dawkins out of the LT spot, and I'm not convinced that an RT is worth a top ten pick at the end of the day.

    So ...who knows where the Pegula jet is....

    Wait... is something happening? It's been so boring since last week I forgot to wait anxiously...

    NFL.com Bucky Brooks 2019 Mock Draft Version 3.0

    Daniel Jeremiah, who I really like, is really high on Dillard. Likes him better than Taylor if I'm not mistaken. I wouldn't mind the player, but I don't love an OT there to begin with.

    New Player Jersey Numbers?

    I really dont know... Probably not unless it's a matter of incoming player setting something up with existing player to buy jersey #. I wonder if Gore will do anything to get 21...

    New Player Jersey Numbers?

    I know it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, but I've always cared about the Numbers that players wear. Any update on the numbers for our new signees?
  9. People laud the Jets move as this sensational decision to get "their guy" and save the franchise. That's utter bull####. The Jets move (which was an overpay by every standard except whatever one the pro-ny media is using) was trading up 2 months early to sit and wait for one of three guys. They didn't want a specific guy, they were happy taking whatever fell in their lap. It was not crazy to assume that the Bills would jump to #2 (regardless of what Gettlemen said- he's an idiot) and the Jets would be left with third best. They shot their shot and it worked for them because they got the guy that everyone loves. Let's revisit this in 2 years When Gregg Williams is the interim head coach in Jersey, when Adam Gase is a QB genius moving on to his 18th post-manning job where he's done nothing, and Sam Darnold is an interception machine. Also, agree with the other posters who rightfully pointed out that this is BS "journalism."

    Devin White - Luke Keuchly, Patrick Willis, Ray Lewis

    We already got our Luke Kuechly. He goes by the predator. Seriously though, I don’t see spending a high pick on a linebacker that would lead to either a first round pick, or one of our best players from last year (Milano) only seeing the field about 60% of the time. If they didn’t like Edmunds at MLB they wouldn’t have put him there last year. Off ball Linebackers aren’t worth that much these days, no matter what the Jets say. If they were really wanting to mess with the LB core they could get a late round thumper like TJ Edwards or Khalil Hodge and put him in the middle for base packages, then do Matt and Tre for sub packages.

    Full Intelligent Breakdown of DK Metcalf

    I am at the same time more and less okay with DK after what we have done on the market. More so because I think he could play a complimentary role to what we already have on offense. Less because WR is less of an immediate need now and I might just as soon have a Ed Oliver/Montez Sweat/etc and a Kelvin Harmon or JJ Arcega-Whiteside later in the draft.

    Bortles signs with the Rams

    Lol. What happens when Goff gets hurt and Bortles lights it up?
  13. Well, I mean, if you have a world class GM like Bruce Allen, do you really need the coaches approval? I mean, the mans a ***** legend... He cannot miss!

    30 seconds in is when I knew Allen had a real chance to be special.
