BPA all the way. I would be a bit surprised if the BPA is an interior offensive lineman, defensive back or running back at this point. The draft could always fall differently from what I expect though. It usually does.
Rarely works that way, if ever, BPA is a perception/opinion , that’s why need is selected 99.999% of the time. When was the last time every evaluation on all teams agreed on who the best player over all was?

I’d like to think my elbow injury is why I can’t run for ***** but it’s unrealistic. Gabes ankle had nothing to do with him dropping ***** passes.
Sure it does, (ankle) if he can’t move towards the ball effectively it will have that sort of effect, that and you can’t run because you are likely kinda old and fat, 😂
The question is, will Beane draft more O-line within the first three picks, as it stands presently we still need to fill Edmunds spot, in FA or the draft, so it’s likely that one of those first three picks goes to the defense if no FA is signed to fill that role, plus, we could stand another WR2 level selection, I am not so confident Beane will use two of those pick on O-linemen, which means one in the top three picks, and PS level lower picks for the line, so far we have seen incremental improvement with FA signings, which is good, it is needed, but, the O line needs more attention if we want to see improved post season success.

We had Hopkins and let him go uggghhhh
The latest WR/STs FA we signed appears to be a better overall option than Hodgins, and I was not happy that they barely played him, and then let him go, but ya know, that’s how the cookie crumbles sometimes,

Fortunately, you are not our QB1
C'mon man - having a petulant snit about a WR signed to compete at the bottom of the roster, and one who actually did contribute for the Dolphins last year?
You don’t get to use the word “snit” on a football forum very often, well done, and well applied if I do say do myself, 👍

This is actually a very good signing, as long as...wait for it...HE GETS OPPORTUNITIES!
I know this staff is tempted to just have him on the ST unit.
I like this signing a lot.
God I really hope you are right, our coaches seam to have an affinity for not using the talent they thought was good enough to sign, unless seemingly, they are in effect forced to so, normally I would not give it much thought, but looking at Hines, Shakir, Cook, Elam ( a 1st rounder, as we all know ) etc, etc, makes me wonder why they sign some of these guys in the first place,

Check back in a few years…… that’s your advice to not cut the cord now? You could be dead in a few years. People are actually saving money now….
I’ve been using my brother in laws Hulu, Espn, Disney account for years. Yes, that will probably change in the future, but by that time have already saved close to $1000 dollars. But I shouldn’t take advantage of these loopholes while they exist…,because it’ll change in a few years? 🤣
people are laughing at you for this thought process.

The loss was demoralizing for sure, but part of me is still convinced we wore the wrong cleats and, combined with the wrong game plan for the weather, were essentially playing on skates all day. I don't believe we are two touchdowns worse than the Bengals.
Well, the Bengals were beating us soundly in the first game before it was called, and did so again in the second game, so…, yeah, right now they are are coached better and the players are playing better, is what it is.
Could we next time around have better coaching/scheming, and play better? Yes this can happen, but history says that our coaches lack of desire to adapt/recognize the need come the postseason will continue to be the root cause of our early departure from the playoffs, the only counter to this likelihood is if Josh and the guys play lights out in every single playoff game…,
What frustrates everyone, wether they say so or not, is that no meaningful adjustments were made on the O or D to counter what the coaches knew was coming, they ran the same game plan that was soundly beaten in the first game against the Bengals.
With the coaching changes on the D side we may or may not see a team that can adjust as necessary, on the O side we might see a coordinator that has learned to use personnel more effectively, “so far” the O -line has seen only minor improvement in free agency, I get the feeling not a whole lot more is going to be done to improve that room, even though it is the unit in need of the most help, fingers crossed 🤞 that I’m wrong on this point, and Beane will draft real talent to shore up the O-line.

I'm not completely in agreement that the oline gets ignored though.
Beane has made moves like Ford, Saffold, and Brown. His misses have hurt to solidify the oline combined with some negligence as well.
I said, “For the most part” what Beane does do would include, what I and others consider to be, a minimal effort to acquire better quality O-lineman, instead he continues to bring in backups, and developmental players as starters, only our center and LT are above average, and come the post season, it shows in a big way, He won’t overtly say it, but I would suspect Josh is getting tired of this crap…,

God and McDermott… obviously so they can fill their holes defensively in a adequate manner…. It’s how they did things with Cam on Carolina. Stack defense and let the elite QB raise everybody else’s game on offense.
We have disagreed on team stuff in the past, but on this you are spot on, it didn’t work in Carolina, and it isn’t working here, after three consecutive post season failures, one would think they might notice, at this rate Josh is going to be thoroughly beat up in three years and not have won anything more than the AFCE, bit of a shame really,

" I still believe many if not most games are won in the trenches." Well put Gregg
This is where Beane and McD have failed year after year. It's the prime reason the Bills lose in the playoffs.
KC and Cinci remain better than the Bills in the trenches. They have a better or just as good as a QB.
I don't see the Bills advancing to the Super Bowl unless they get their trenches rectified.
Agreed, our O-line is / should be a top priority, only God knows why it gets ignored for the most part every off season,
Cole who is lives in Bizzaro land, is feeling comfortable with supporting Mr sweat lodge cleansing boy and mushroom eater A-Ron Rodgers, Birds of a feather…
So, I guess a sixty million dollar broadcasting job isn’t enough to fund his retirement then, this is why they are called Highdeas…,
All teams draft their perceived BPA at positions of need every year, it’s never not been that way, 100% of draft picks are needs.
Every team needs backups,

Perhaps the amount of money that they were talking about at extension time wasn’t agreeable once again I don’t know I’m just spit balling here. It’s really not like Brandon to not resign his own players.
I think this is what the case was, otherwise they very likely re-sign him, which is the SOP with Beane, the extension they “may have” offered likely made it clear to Edmonds that Buffalo did not see his value where Tremaine felt it should be…, and now he is gone, its moving on time now, jmo.

Valid thoughts, i tend to agree for the most part, i would like to see a Wagner level LB signed in FA, that would be ideal i would think
