  1. I've been to many Bills games in Miami. Even in the down years for the Bills, the crowds have been pretty evenly split. Bills fans are generally louder. In recent years, Bills fans have the stadium to themselves by the end of the third quarter because the Miami people bail when their team is down. Every stadium has their fair share of jerks who are looking to cause trouble. Miami is no exception but they have fewer than other places I have gone ( Jests, KC, Steelers, Dallas, Chicago ). It is really fun to see the home team having to go to a silent snap count because the Bills Mafia is rocking the place. Looking forward to sending the Miami fans home crying again this year.
  2. It depends on what coverage is dialed up by Frazier on any particular play. The Bills have great options that most other teams don't have. Taron Johnson and Matt Milano are very good in coverage. Those two guys allow the Bills to play a variety of coverages and to hide the coverage presnap.
  3. The player would be a fool to turn down a contract from another team so that he could wait on a job that may not materialize. Punters are not in short supply but jobs are. I can't even imagine an agent letting this happen.
  4. We all hear about "roid rage" being a real thing. When I see the helmet swinging it makes me think there is something to it.
  5. It may have more to do with his ability to get a team set at the line of scrimmage, execute a snap count, catch a snap, and avoid taking a huge loss on a play gone bad. They also figured even a guy with average athletic ability can get one downfield. Finally, they probably felt putting the third string QB at risk was the best of all undesirable options.
  6. Teddy was a great play designer. He was fortunate to have a QB that could make all of the throws, a running back that was an excellent runner, receiver and blocker, and wide receivers that were versatile. It also didn't hurt to have a good o-line either. Defenses were mostly caught with the wrong people on the field for the plays that Kelly called (audibles). With McD's rotations on defense, the Bills could probably deal with some amount of fast no huddle if used strategically. It sure was fun watching the K-gun roll. It's a little premature make the comparison between Dorsey and Teddy but we may be justified in doing it at the end of the season.
  7. I always thought the Fins were full of **it. After all of these years I guess they finally proved me wrong.
  8. Runs at the goal line will probably remain a big part of their offense. An empty backfield usually creates a number mismatch in the box that is a huge advantage to a running QB.
  9. I believe Drake will catch on somewhere. He has excellent receiving skills and speed. People should not forget that he was also a really good kick and punt returner at Alabama. As others have pointed out, it is likely that an injury somewhere in the league will get him a job.
  10. Beane continues to do good work. He acquires a surplus of decent players (better than many teams have) and flips them for draft picks. When the team continues to draft at the end of each round, having some extra picks in order to move up can be important. I would not be surprised if he moves someone from the d-line also.
  11. It is really his last shot to hang onto a starting job in the league. Not only does he have to perform but he also has to stay healthy and available. With about 6 projected first round QB's headed to the 2023 draft, some borderline guys will be headed to duty as clipboard holders. Personally, when I see him play, I put him in the category of Chase Daniel or Case Keenum. Good enough to be a very good backup but not a starter.
  12. These cuts will probably be players that the Bills will not want on the practice squad. There may also be a veteran that knows that he isn't going to make the team and wants to get a chance to catch on elsewhere. The Bills may also factor in what positions they need to fill for the last preseason game (depends on who they are holding out of the game). There are more than four obvious cuts on this roster.
  13. Pretty good assessment. IMHO Bills probably don't keep 5 running backs but we'll find out soon enough.
  14. News flash! The Bills can't keep them all and it is better to get something from a trade than to cut them and get nothing. If Beane can't move any of them to another team, they will be released and the Bills get nothing for them.
  15. It might be a little too soon to think about this but I have to believe that Beane may be working the phones to work a trade or two. After watching this game, I believe the Bills have a surplus of o-line and d-line talent. Compared to what some other teams have for starters, Bills cuts will be an upgrade for them. Teams like Seattle, Chicago, Atlanta, and Houston could make good trade targets. A trade could seem like a good option for teams that may feel that they will miss out on the waiver wire merry go round. Even a 6th or 7th round draft pick is better than letting guys walk and getting nothing.
  16. ESPN is generally pathetic in most things that they do anymore. It is difficult to ever take them seriously. In this case, with these rankings, I don't.
  17. Probably some combination of zones and double coverage in man to man situations. The Rams are very good at using formations and motion to get the match ups that they want. Bills are very good at hiding their coverage pre-snap, even when facing motion and different formations. It should be a good game of "cat and mouse". The pass rush will be the key to the Bills defense.
  18. Unfortunately, it always comes down to the dollars in a lucrative business. Both sides decided that the cost and risk of losing litigation was more important than the moral outrage displayed by the public.
  19. If the Browns didn't negotiate an escape clause and/or a bonus recovery clause in the contract, they may be even dumber than most of us think.
  20. It's a reach to think that this will cause Beane to make a bad decision. One team making a bad deal doesn't set the market for every other GM. As good as Poyer has been, he plays a position that is more easily replaced than some others. Beane will not blow up the long term financial management plan for the team to over pay a safety that is on the downward side of his career (from an age perspective). To find examples,we only have to look at the crazy contracts that were given to Todd Gurley and Elliot to see that other GM's have not accepted those contracts as setting the market. In fact, GM's have come to realize that running backs have a short shelf life and replacements are easily found. If RB's won't sign a reasonable contract, teams are letting them walk and finding their low cost replacements in the middle rounds of the draft or in free agency.
  21. The video of any play tells the story for any football coach that takes the time to watch it. They don't need to hear a player talk his way through the play or formation. The context of the play (field position, down and distance, game score, etc.) also sheds a lot of light on the team's strategy. None of this guarantees that the team will do the same thing in a future similar circumstance. Therefore, all of this sounds like much to do about nothing.
