  1. Do people even care about the Sabres during the regular season anymore? I think this has been far worse than the Bills drought. Maybe it’s because I’m a fair weather hockey fan, but I’ve found that team immensely unlikeable for years. It seems like that team couldn’t care less for the past decade.
  2. Cousins would be very mediocre on this team with our talent. Josh turns water into wine, while Cousins works within the system allowing other talented guys to make plays. Allen is the talented guy on this offense.
  3. I absolutely agree, but I think people will quickly change their opinion of Brady if Josh puts up those numbers. I’m of the belief that our 2023 Brady offense isn’t a sustainable plan for the future. You must have chunk plays to succeed in today’s NFL. There’s far too much that can go wrong with ball control offense. One holding call easily can derail an entire game. That’s why big plays are so important these days. Everything, including defensive play worked in perfect unison during the second half of 2023. However, I don’t think we can keep winning with “complimentary” football over a long period of time.
  4. I’ve always seen the Rochester suburbs as great places to raise a family, but not a great place to be young and single. That was at least my life experience in Rochester vs other cities. You can’t ask for much more out of a place to raise a family though.
  5. Flipping TV channels, and just watched Bass miss an extra point in the 2020 AFCG. He’s been unreliable for quite a while. I don’t care about the cap, you can’t have a guy that makes an extra point an adventure.
  6. I also think Daniel Jones regressed a lot. Lawrence isn’t amazing, but I think he’s been more consistent. Jones put up some big numbers, and started to fade quickly.
  7. I get your point, but the idea is to win a Super Bowl. Derek Carr can’t do that, but the idea was Rodgers could. That’s fine if you disagree, but I don’t think you bother with a player like Carr in the Jets position. If you’re going to waste time on a player like Carr, you’d be better off drafting a rookie. The rookie might give you a chance at a title. Everyone knows Carr isn’t that guy. The playoffs are never really the point. Winning a championship is the real goal.
  8. Sirrianni is the real issue imo. He doesn’t come across as a professional who can lead an NFL locker room. He’s more east coast suburban sports dad.
  9. He lacked the drive and ambition to be great. I think a lot of the injury issues were a result of it.
  10. Johnson isn’t a great owner, and he interferes too much, but I’m with him on the Rodgers signing. It’s easy to pick on in hindsight, but Rodgers had a greater upside that Derek Checkdown Carr doesn’t have at all. Carr wasn’t going to sell tickets, or be a real franchise QB.
  11. This country also varies greatly by zip code. Americans mostly know what part of their city can be dangerous, and how people find that trouble. Buffalo has its share of issues for example, but I’m not stressed out in most locations. In South America even the glamorous decent looking neighborhoods aren’t very safe. As far as per capita crime rates, I’m not sure how some have such inaccurate information. It actually is far higher in South America than the US. There’s a reason that survey’s in places like Brazil indicate the majority would like to leave their country. Brazil like much of South America has a fun culture, with people who enjoy life, but even locals don’t feel safe at any time.
  12. The number of drugs that aren’t easily detectable in a roadside breathalyzer type test is another one of my biggest concerns. I’m seeing people who looked absolutely cooked on the road more frequently.
  13. At the risk of sounding abrasive, did anyone actually watch USC football? I’m seeing a lot of criticism about Williams’ late season meltdowns USC. It sounds like something people are parroting from random pundits. USC the team had late season meltdowns, but it wasn’t always Williams’ fault. This Lincoln Riley coached team simply can’t play defense. The USC offense often put plenty of points on board, but lost high scoring games. Williams looked good more often than not. I’m not promising he’ll be a success, but I can’t go along with this narrative. He can make throws that other guys simply can’t. That’s what separates him from players like Fields coming out of college. The ability to make spectacular throws seems to be a defining characteristic of successful NFL QB’s these days.
  14. He’s no Peterman. That guy would never throw picks in practice.
  15. Agree, I also disagree with the idea that Chan was a brilliant offensive mind. He made his name as a position coach with the 80’s Broncos. If you look at his other stops, he didn’t have very successful offensive teams. Fitz just did what he does during Gailey’s time in Buffalo. He put together a stretch of magical games, and had a decent first half of the 2011 season. That’s what Fitz did at every stop after. Gailey didn’t do much after his time in Buffalo, and did little in the years before. That doesn’t sound like a guy with anything innovative.
  16. I don’t fully agree with everything I think you’re getting at, but the last paragraph couldn’t be more true. It doesn’t matter what side of the legalization argument you’re on. I’m sure there was a lot of stupidity involved in this arrest. States that haven’t legalized aren’t going out looking for offenders. People get busted when they do something incredibly stupid. Things like driving around at 2am with smoke rolling out of their car windows. The type of stuff no one should be doing, regardless of the legal status. This type of obnoxious behavior is the stuff that gets people in trouble.
  17. Agree, most people waste words when speaking. Reading gives us the luxury of skimming over those things. I’ve watched a few videos on various things such as auto repair, only to discover a twenty minute video that could have explained the solution in twenty seconds.
  18. We always seem to get lots of early season road games.
  19. Murph did well growing in his role as play by play announcer. He had a good radio voice. It seems like “radio voices” aren’t a thing these days. I hope we get a good play by play announcer who fits that bill.
  20. Celebs typically have fragile ego’s. I’m fully convinced most jokes at these roasts are shared with the person being honored before they are read aloud. I think it’s akin to believing any “reality” television.
  21. I understand, but regardless, Kraft’s “transgressions” being off limits for jokes is super lame. Krafts’s antics were actually one of the more humorous parts of that franchise. I’d find him likable if he could handle a joke. Just my opinion though.
  22. The Kraft rule seems super lame. People are claiming this was some fun free for all, yet they make Kraft jokes off limits.
  23. I wanted to like this league, but quality of play is always going to be an issue outside of the NFL. Modern football is all about the passing game, and there aren’t even enough NFL QB’s to make every NFL game watchable. It only becomes worse when you create more leagues. College football has the luxury of future NFL stars being on the field. Spring leagues are essentially battles between NFL third stringers. That’s very difficult to get excited about.
  24. I get that, but I find it difficult to believe the team and players didn’t know he had gang affiliations. Former players have said they’d joke with him about it during games. It just didn’t matter to the Pats when he helped them win.
