    Not lately.  Seahawks haven't had a top 10 D (scoring or yards) for the past 2 years.  In 2017, Wilson scored 37 of the team's 38 TDs (and STILL didn't win the MVP).


    Other than perhaps Brady and Rodgers, Wilson has the best vision in the game.  He's very smart, freakishly athletic and has a big arm.  


    That's the guy I want Allen to be.  Not rock-head Cam Newton.

    I agree with u whole heartedly but if we want Allen to be like anyone why not go for Aaron Rodgers with legs.

    Edmunds got pushed around quite a bit last year, that goes with his misdiagnosing plays and taking bad angles. I know he is young but lack of instincts was his knock in college. He has a long way to go especially with the seasons Leonard, VanderEsch,  and Warner had. I hope he turns out. 

    This is true but he was 20yrs old and was making the calls for #2 ranked defense on the field that took massive responsibility.  I'm guessing he was playing with his head on a swivel.  He did seem to get better in the latter part of the season and I fully expect him to be much better in yr2

    For the longest time there has been a debate with my friends about who the greatest Defensive End was during the time we started watching football in the late 80’s and into the 90’s.


    Back then we thought we had the best DE in the NFL in Bruce Smith.  Others considered Reggie White, from Philly, at the time to be the best. 


    Now that we have the benefit of hindsight, the question is...who was really better?


    Statistically there really isn’t much difference.  Reggie played 15 seasons with 198 sacks.  Bruce played 17 with 200 sacks.  Of course, Bruce is the all-time leader.   Both men should be considered toward as the best DE’s ever.


    I hate to say it, but I’m going to give the edge to Reggie.  I think he was a much better leader and impacted the game more than Bruce did.  


    For many years, I would argue in favor Bruce but one game made me change my mind.  What sealed the deal for me was in a 1996 playoff game.  Bruce had the flu and was questionable to play.  This happens quite a bit in the NFL and players usually play through sickness.  So I was really shocked when he missed the game.  Pittsburgh scored 40 points so the team definitely could’ve used Bruce.


    I immediately thought of the Thanksgiving game against Dallas where Reggie played with a severely injured arm.  He should have missed several weeks but he played through it.  Thinking of that made me say “It’s official, Reggie is better.”  


     As an adult, I can see the flawed logic there, but forgetting that incident, it doesn’t change my answer.  Bruce was fantastic, but I think Reggie was the greatest of all-time.


    I dont know if any one answered this yet but Reg played LE and faced much weaker comp vs RTs while Bruce played the 5 tech RE vs LTs. Basically Bruce played against much harder comp vs elite tackles while playing a position 5tech that really doesn't equate to monster numbers he put up.  Bruce should be way more respected based on these facts . I'm talking about respect from the media but I guess playing in a market like Buffalo hurt him in that manner.

    He's got a couple of vacant roster spots.  Is there a veteran free agent really worth bringing on board at this point, or does he look for somebody else to fill a spot?  Is there anything out there at this point that isn't garbage?

    I say stand pat and see what Shaq, Murphy & Eli have to offer. With the addition of Oliver it should open things up for left DE. 

    On 5/10/2019 at 12:01 PM, GreggTX said:

    We go with Murphy/Shaq at LE and Hughes/Harold at RE. Darryl Johnson on the PS. That's my guess. Next year they go all in for both DE positions.

    Why both ends Hughes is one of the best in the league we can at least franchise him and if we don't like his price that he's demanding we can at least trade him.  If we can sign 36yr old RBS we can keep 31yr old DEs . Especially if Hughes has the type of yr he just had.

    I would like to see 2500-3000 yards and 15 tds 

    Josh will probably run a lot of those in as opposed to throw from inside the 5 cause well he’s a monster in that area of the field. 

    I’d prefer less than 15 ints. 


    I think those are rookie stats. We need to see a leap to at least 3500 plus yds passing 26-30 td passes. We don't get these types of passing numbers in his 2nd yr then that's alarming.

    Sees us as last in the Division. Obviously, he has many critics, but I’ve always liked him and he makes points.


    *Alarming 7 Blowout loses

    *Young QBs do better with Offensive HC

    *Fish go from 7-9 pretenders to WC consideration w/Rosen

    *Pats* great Draft

    *Jets did much to improve 


    I’m good with this analysis as we all (AFCE) play a comparatively favorable schedule and no Bills fans really know what we have or who we are yet. We’re putting a lot of stock and hope that all the pieces will fit nicely very quickly. If not, and it’s unreasonable to expect it, we’re going to lose games we likely should and could have won, while learning ‘who we are’.


    I still think 10 wins is possible, but it’ll take at least 3 Division wins to accomplish.



    CC is an absolute joke of a media member his opinion is always based on some weird ways of thinking and outright outrageous comparisons.  I hate his guts to be honest not as a person but as a media member😅

    Ok, hear me out. 


    * The kid scored a 36 on the Wunderlic (compared to Jimbo’s 20 or so...no offense)

    * He obviously has legs to call his own number.

    * Defenses will not be able to substitute in quick enough to account for Beasley, Brown etc.

    * He is growing with the job. He can handle the duties.


    Would love to see Josh call his own plays (like Jimbo) and have Daboll coach him up.  

    Eventually Allen will have the ability to make changes to play calls once he gets the experience necessary.  All franchise QBs have this type of leeway.

    Guys, If someone signs Shaq next off season it will effect the comp formula for that season. So signing a million free agents in 2019 would have nothing to do with someone else signing Shaq in 2020. The Bills aren't getting any comp picks in 2020 draft, becuase they signed a lot of free agents in 2019. They could get comp picks in the 2021 draft and Shaq signing elsewhere in the 2020 offseason would effect that. People gotta read up on how this stuff works before going all apeshit. 

    Damn right I'm tired of people bringing up the comp pks. We should shut down all comp talk here until this team is great and doesn't have a ton of players on 1yr deals.

    WR and DE are going to be by far are biggest, and only major, needs going into 2020

    It's not about needs it's about Stars. Every team has needs . Hopefully Allen becomes a star that will mask a bunch of needs likewise with Edmunds and Oliver on D. Super Bowls are won by stars no doubt about it.  Right now we don't have any but this yr hopefully some will develop.

    I like Andrew Brandt, and appreciate his usually solid takes. In this case, though I’m not sure it’s an indictment on the Bills own scouting. It’s fair to say it’s damning of their former GM and HC though. Lawson just hasn’tshown he’s consistent enough to be paid at that number. Smart move by the Bills FO here. 

    The thing is he's going to be 24 this yr he's very young and has gotten better . If he gets 8 -10 sacks in 2019 his value will skyrocket . The tag is only guaranteed for injury so if he didn't perform  he would be released.  I hope McBeane is wrong on this one and Shaq busts out in a major way this yr.

    Agree. Excited to see "new (definitely) & improved (hopefully)" O-Line. Equally excited to see Oliver on D. Think this might be a make or break season for #17 at least in the eyes of many fans. I'm not too worried yet but the next few months will fly and it'll be mid-season before we know it. 

    To early for make or break but he definitely needs to make big strides

    Give him one more year to mature...keep him around.  Let him walk if he doesn't earn the 10 mil in his option year.  He is young, and apparently has finally learned how to be a pro.  Maybe he will be a late bloomer.   terrible Whaley/Ryan pick though....he was not ready.....

    I agree , just look at Jerry it took him 4yrs to get his career on track. 

  12. 1 hour ago, Woodman19 said:

    Exactly, you can do better in free agency with $10.2 million than Shaq.  Don't overvalue him just because he's home grown.

    10 mil is basically a solid player salary now a days . I think its worth the risk because we can just release him at the end of the season if he doesn't have a serious injury. If he steps his pass rush up to around 8sks and can still be one of the best at DE against the run then he'll be well worth it.  Plus we have to keep that franchise tag available for Jerry . So give him the 5th yr option and hopefully he blows up this yr and we won't have to make a decision on him and Jerry.

    So, he will be an average NFL player, we reached, Beane was nervous and we lost the draft.  You may have just set the record for # of hot takes in less than 52 words.


    One thing I have learned in my many years on this planet is "do not make pronouncements about things you are not expert in." Have an opinion, offer that opinion, but, don't make pronouncements because they have a tendency to make you look stupid if anyone cares to bring them up down the road.

    I've been making proclamations for 20yrs I've been right @ least 70% of the time.  That's my opinion maybe I'm right maybe I'm wrong but Singletary will not live up to his 3rd rd grade . I'll even go one further fans on this board will be unhappy about this pk for quite some time and they'll be talking about players like Winovich and Sternberger amongst others of players we missed on.

    Clearly the Bill's scouting department and decision makers feel differently, but I'm guessing all your extensive and exhaustive hours researching and scouting came to this informed analysis.

    The kid will be average at best in the NFL . We reached for him and in turn gave up basically the rest of our mid rd pks to get Knox . In which Beane has admitted to getting nervous about during the draft.  In my opinion that's where we lost the draft.

    Wentz completed 63% of his passes as a rookie and threw for more TD than INTs with an average group of recievers.  I’m pretty sure they knew what they had and went out and got him Alshon Jeffrey etc.  


    Wentz recievers, who he completed 63% to were Zack Etta (good) Jordan Mathews (not good) Darren Sproles (very old) Trey Burton and Nelson Agahlor.




    Speaking of the Eagles I wonder if they would part with Dallas Goedert for a 2nd and 4th next yr I'm even willing to give them 1 of the guards we signed.  

  16. Devin averaged 5.2 yds per carry in 2018 in a horrible conference.  I hope his Oline had more to do with that then him.  


    I much rather have taken Winovich or Sternberger at that pk then trade up for Hakeem Butler.  Good backs were going all the way threw the 6th rd in this draft. Who knows Singletary might of stuck around to our 5th rd pk. Not sure many teams cover at 5'7 195lb back with over 700 carries this early in the draft.  Shifty or not I mean Tarik Cohen went in the 5th and he's more talented then Singletary.

    McDermott was in charge. Everybody knows that. That's why I said Beane AND McDermott. Those two are responsible for the latest rebuild of this team.

    He might of made the final decisions but those were players brought to him by Whaley and his scouts. Btw don't glorify that draft to much we missed out on some really good players in that draft including the MVP of the NFL . U can't trade our last 3 drafts combined for Mahomes. Which btw I the random fan wanted very badly in the 1st rd. I guess I should be paid millions to.  😂

  18. 6 hours ago, MJS said:

    Beane and McDermott have already proven, in their last two years of drafting, that they are good at identifying talent and getting guys that will help the team. Edmunds, Allen, Matt Milano, Taron Johnson, Tre White, Wyatt Teller, Dion Dawkins, Zay Jones. Undrafted Levi Wallace and Robert Foster. These are guys from the last two draft classes that have been significant contributors and are the building blocks of the new team. You can't argue with their success rate.

    Those are definitely exceptions. If you never found diamonds in the rough, the draft would only be 4 rounds long. But generally speaking, higher picks are better.

    The problem with your rebuttal average random fan is that Whaley and his scouts ran the 2017 draft not Beane.

    Thanks, random fan. I'll trust the experts and the people who get paid millions of dollars because of their proven record of talent evaluation.

    Proven record of throwing away mid rd pks. That's what the Bills do this is nothing new.  Paid millions yes and there's plenty of them being paid millions to go home and collect dust because of there inept draft skills.


    People here amaze me u want to crown Beane for making no brainer pks u don't have to pay me millions to pick Oliver and Cody in the 1st 2 rds. Matter of fact 90% of this board could of done that for free. Where GMs earn respect is in the mid rds of the draft. 

    • Haha (+1) 1

  20. I see it in another way Gms earn there stripes in these mid rds and we gave our pks away like candy. I see teams like Balt and NE earning a living in these rds yr in yr out.  We haven't changed much we still love giving away these pks from Russ Brandon to Buddy to Whaley and now Beane it's Halloween and we got the candy to hand out.
