  1. Gretzky is the only athlete in the conversation for most dominant across all sports. As you pointed out its not even close. The only criticism of Gretzky would be he dominated at a time in Edmonton when the Eastern European and Russian players were not in the NHL yet. As for Ruth, you can't even discuss him without brining up the fact he didn't play against black or Latin players.
  2. Agree. Cribbs was a great story for a few years. He isn't on the wall now though.
  3. As for a new Wall, maybe they vote again. Guys like Kalsu, Ferguson, Hansen, Ritcher and a few others are memorable parts of Bills history but are they really worthy of Wall of Fame? And then vote in a number of guys that should have been in a long time ago like Byrd, Reuben Brown, Schobel, and hell even Moorman.
  4. How about a compromise? Just put up "2003 Yards" Honor the achievement and black ball the murderer.
  5. Best: 1980 Dolphins. 2003 Patriots is close but the Bills lost the 1970's to the Dolphins. The 2003 team was not good. The 1980 team was good enough to win the SB. Worst - hard to choose. I know this is recency bias, but last year was so deflating. All the expectations of a SB run and they absolutely looked terrible. Baltimore in 2018 was an embarrassment as well. If McD does not win a SB with Buffalo his Wikipedia page will be two lines - Failed to win a SB with Josh Allen and started Nathan Peterman in an NFL game - astonishingly more than once.
  6. It's more than just being a target for the fans. He is in a contract year and it is probably the most difficult decision Beane will face in the next 12 months. So it is a worthy topic of discussion. Ideally Edmunds plays better and you sign him to an extension and the Bills have an anchor on defense for the next 5 years. That said if he is extended at a high price and is just as mediocre as he has been then he is an anchor on the team and the salary cap for the next several years. See what I did there? Used anchor to mean the opposite ...
  7. Its a team sport. Chargers defense was terrible. Herbert is a star already Agree more like a 1969 Shelby Mustang Cobra. Speed and power
  8. Agree only add in Burrow and Herbert and an aging Wilson. Sucks that all 5 are in the AFC. When Brady and Rodgers retire, there is not much left in the NFC. Dak probably is the best of the NFC after those two.
  9. It says 5 scariest but they only talk about 4. I'm not going to watch the whole thing. My top 4 is Allen, Mahommes, Herbert, and Rodgers. Rodgers is better than Brady at this point and without Gronk I don't think Brady cracks the top 4. I know Adams is not in Green Bay any more and that is why I have Herbert ahead of Rodgers. I've already posted numerous times the AFC Championship will be decided when Buffalo and LA Chargers meet in the playoffs.
  10. Wow I didn't know that. Such a tragedy. I saw Mike Meyers on Colbert wearing a Sabres jersey the following week as a shout of to Buffalo.
  11. Isn't the front of War Memorial Stadium still standing? You could drive past that. Not sure what is around there.
  12. Ford is gone Moss is staying Epenesa stays if they keep 10 linemen. If they only go with 9 it will come down to him vs Lawson.
  13. KC has two SB wins and knocked us out of playoffs two years in a row. We would all trade several playoff runs for just one of those trophies.
  14. Wow I have never heard if this place. Where is it? I cant wait to check it out. Portland has a place called Voodoo Doughnuts. They make some crazy stuff. Not really to my taste but super popular. There is also a chain called Blue Star doughnuts. Much more traditional and very very good.
  15. This is my upset game of the year. Bills will beat GB and Rodgers the week before. Then have a mental lapse on the road. Almost nobody picked a loss to the Jags and most did not expect a loss to Pittsburgh last year.
  16. I could live with 1 preseason game but they played none in 2020 and the competition and quality of play was fine
  17. The gap between Jerry Rice and every other WR in the history of the NFL is greater than every other position. Yes I do think Brady is best QB of all time but he doesn't even have all the all-time records. You can make legit arguments for Marino, Elway, Rodgers, Brees, and Manning in the best QB category. Lastly Brady is not in my top 2 NFL players of all time - that would be Rice and LT. I think the gap between Lawrence Taylor and all other linebackers is the second widest margin. Jim Brown is probably even a better argument than Brady. Though his records have been surpassed he was more physically dominant than any RB in NFL history. As for overall athlete, it is Gretzky and there is no further discussion. Male or female there is no other athlete that was more superior in their respective sport across all eras.
  18. I agree. They open up a roster spot by getting rid of Gilliam. With Howard and Knox you then get rid of Sweeney. Then the decision is how many and which RBs do you keep?
  19. Why wouldn't Quessenbury be first to back up IOL? I thought he could back up at all 5 spots and compete to start at RT.
  20. Honestly if he hadn't gotten hurt he probably would have been cut by now. I guess the only spot he is really competing for would be Kumerow's. And I say that because those are two guys with size. Both are listed at 6'4" though many sites also say he is 6'3". Davis is 6'2. I just can't see him making the roster for the rare red-zone opportunity. His only shot would be if Kumerow got hurt and even then I'm not sure he would make the roster.
