  1. sorry if you read the article, it said that Lee tried to convince Whaley to take Prescott but his heart was set on Cardale Jones. That’s what I was referring to
  2. It should be noted that Buddy was also rumored to be very interested in drafting Tim Tebow in the 2nd or 3rd round and was “crushed” when Denver grabbed him in around 1
  3. Yes and it’s a lot of revisionist history for Lee and Nix here. Of course, Buddy wanted Russell Wilson!
  4. A lot of revisionist history here from Buddy Nix. If he loved Russel Wilson as much as he said he did, why wouldn’t he take him before the 4th round? Why would he take TJ “FN” Graham ahead of him? It’s because he didn’t value Russ as much as he wants you to believe back then. Also Doug Whaley taking Cardale Jones over Dak Prescott. TERRIBLE. Yet there are so many stans in this group that will say Nix and Whaley were good GM’s. They were horrible and screwed this franchise
  5. I see why you are saying and I don’t believe he’s in the same category as the players you mentioned. IMO he does benefit from playing on a very wel-coached and well-schemed defense that plays into his strength
  6. LOL this is a huge stretch. We have many Native American reservations located in Western, NY. I’ve never heard one publicly voice a complaint over the name or the way that the organization has presented it. Also it’s not like Buffalo Bill Cody has any presence in the stadium or relation to the team other than in name Also the Patriots. Because many of our forefathers, including John Hancock in MA, owned slaves
  7. Didn’t they buy the naming rights to the stadium? So whether he likes it or not, New Era is entitled to naming rights
  8. Sure but that was mostly early in his tenure. The decisions that he made during his final 2 decades of ownership were terrible. His legacy is one that’s complicated. As a philanthropist, he did some good things for Western, NY - no doubt. As an owner, he made some terrible terrible decisions that made the football team (and the city of Buffalo) a laughingstock around the NFL. That’s a fact Fair enough, he deserves his share of the blame. You can’t forget about the guy who empowered him and...to quote RB....”tarnished the brand” the most.
  9. Russ Brandon - the second person most responsible for tarnishing they Bills brand. Ralph Wilson is still number one by a long shot. He did some major damage to the team
  10. Sal Capaccio said on WGR this morning that he thought Hauschka would have a hard time unseating Bass. Bass not only had a strong leg but he’s accurately in mid-range FG’s as well. This would have been a big surprise this past Spring but I do think it’s more likely.
  11. not bad and he’ll only get better
  12. Meh, while there always were some fans pining for Sammy, I think that most informed fans took a look at his production and were ok with the trade.
  13. How is this unpopular? Most would agree
  14. There are so many factors that go into playcalling. First we don’t know whether the calls were all Daboll or whether McDermott ordered those safe calls as you would suggest. Also we don’t know whether Josh audibled out of the original playcall into a run. I believe this happened their possession of the half. The Bills ran the ball And everyone lost their mind and said that it was a bad call by Daboll. In actuality, it was a pass play and Josh audibled into a Gore run which was stuffed. He confirmed this after the game. The 3rd factor is the OL. They were improved but overall the unit wasn’t great at overpowering fronts when they needed to. This has happened in short yardage or at the end of games. The line remains intact this season but they will need to play better. I don’t disagree though, if it’s an offensive issue Daboll and/or Allen will take the heat before McDermott does
