  1. This iteration of the Bills cares not for the accolades of the regular season! They know the only games that matter are played in January and February. After the loss to the Chiefs in AFCCG with a hobbled WR room and feeling the effects of going all out for an entire season, the Bills aren't going to let that happen again! It's a long season and they know it. They know what it takes to win playoff football games. They're not going in blind and flying high like last year. They're grounded and focused on the ultimate goal. Many fans and pundits are down on the bills because of the 'disappointing' record and the inconsistency of play, however, the Bills don't give a crap what you or anyone else thinks. It took everything the Patriots had to win that game Monday night, and if the Bills connect on a small handful of plays it's a rout in the Bills favor, it's really that simple. The Patriots had to play an almost perfect game and they still had to scrape by with last minute defensive heroics to come out on top. Milano might've purposely 'gotten injured' at the end of the game because the Bills aren't going to embarrass themselves with some trash play to win on a punt return in week 13, in week 19 and beyond if they're in that position, they're going to have something special prepared for the occasion. Yeah they lost to the Pats. Who cares!? They're still in prime position to make a run in the playoffs. It doesn't matter where they play, they know they can beat the pants off of any team in the league, in their own stadium, Bills fans travel well and they'd love to see Blue and Red confetti all over Arrowhead, or anywhere else. It took the best efforts of the Steelers, the fully loaded Titans, the Jags, and now the 'white hot' AFC leading Patriots to get the better of the Bills on days where the bills were 'off'. These weren't a couple bad plays and the game was out of hand, these games were close the whole way through, with the opponents feeling great about themselves for a having a slim lead, even knowing the Bills could end it in a play. These teams hold this win against the Bills as a highlight of their season (or decade, in the case of the Pats) and the Bills don't care about the loss for one second, they only care about the one that ended the season last year. The Colts game was over at halftime after the Mckittrick fumble and the Bills were ok with that. Something in common with these teams is that they all had this game circled as a big one. The Bills only have one game circled on the schedule. THE big one. That's not to say that the Bills are a team who isn't trying to win. Quite the contrary. They're a team that is working out the kinks now instead of later. A team who doesn't get too amped up about a week 13 game. A team in the process of getting better. A team with quiet confidence even with their backs against the wall. A team who knows their best football is ahead of them. A team with Superbowl aspirations.
  2. I'm just feeling good about the team! I think Sanders has been the primary target in the offense and starting Monday Diggs is going to get a lot more schemed looks to make downfield plays. With a healthy Milano the Defense is going to come out swinging. The rotation on the D-line keeps them fresh upfront to stop Henry all game long and Tannehill can't handle the constant pressure.
  3. Milano and Rousseau shine as the Bills notch another primetime rout! Allen with a near flawless night before Mitch closes out the fourth. Stefon Diggs has a monster night with 3 td catches over 40 yards!
  4. Man, I get the satire but the Chargers video objectively sucked and I'm pretty sure the Falcons one was made by a drunk 18 year old who watches too much Archer. Not saying the Bills is the best, particularly since I haven't seen all 32, but to say those are better is a stretch
  5. It's ridiculous! It goes to show that the Bills D has a ton of depth but not necessarily high end talent in the front 7 right now. That's obviously subject to change depending on how the next year pans out and if we have a guy (or a few) who's heads above everyone else moving forward
  6. I think they're gonna roll with what worked last year and see if it truly is a position that needs to be upgraded. They love Dane and Levi has proved to be serviceable so why invest a high pick if you have faith in Dane taking a big step. If he doesn't then next year they'll know for sure and draft accordingly
  7. It's a disappointing turn of events but the defense hasn't had the sacks numbers anyone's been looking for this year, they've still been getting pressure, they just haven't been able to get home with it. Two games to go in the season and it's anyone's game really. Addison leads the charge with 4 sacks followed closet by Obada (3.5), Rousseau (3), Star (3), while Milano and Taron Johnson (2) are tied for 5th. My hopeful projection of DRoY for Rousseau looks like a miss even though he's shown some promise. Epenesa hasn't done much and Boogie had a few flashes. Overall nothing to get super excited about. I think the rotation hurts the overall sack numbers for the individual players, so maybe it will help with the players being fresher for the playoffs. Ed Oliver has looked good at times and Harrison Phillips has shown more run stuffing chops than I think anyone expected. Star in the running makes me laugh since he was such a afterthought as sack leader. I think it's between 3 players at this point and that's Rousseau, Obada, and Addison. I'm excited to see how the D-Line finishes the last to game. End of update. Simple question here guys. Which bills defensive player finishes with the most sacks this upcoming season? One of the two high round rookies, a second year player, one of the vets, the new guy, the under achieving DT, one of the LBs? Man, when I first thought about this I was thinking just DE, but none of them had big years last year and AJ Klein tied with Addison for 5 sacks on the year. Honestly I could see any number of players taking the crown! I'm interested to hear what the rest of you think. Personally I think Rousseau is going to light it up with the tutelage of Bruce, Hughes, and Addison. At this point in their respective careers I think the vets realize they can either help the new kids learn the ropes or they can hit the road. I'm going to put it out there that Rousseau is going to be in the running for DROY, and help turn the Bills D into a truly fearsome unit. Everyone is going to wonder how he slipped through the cracks and Beane is going to further cement his status as a top GM in the league!
  8. Hahah I've never seen I get that for sure. It's really just an abstract thought I had on the potentiality of moving up to secure higher rated prospects this year at the expense of the later picks for the most part. Quality over quantity and all that
  9. What do you find unsustainable about the trade? If anything I'd say it's more sustainable because the players your drafting this year will be better than you'd get otherwise and next year having a 2nd instead of a 1st wouldn't be tragic
  10. I didn't. So theoretically the Bills would have to choose to move closer to the middle of the rounds rather than as high up as the Panthers are. Not a terrible trade off. What I find interesting is everyone automatically shooting it down even though if this trade were to happen the Bills would come out on top by quite a bit (the value of a 3rd and 4th?)
  11. I don't know the composition of their roster but I wouldn't be opposed to it, especially if I have a number of late round prospects I feel good about. Realistically this would be the bare minimum it would take for me to do the deal
  12. Those were my thoughts exactly! Although I didn't necessarily convey them like you did here. It's obviously risky and there's almost a zero percent chance of it happening.
  13. It's not like I said it was some rumor or bound to happen. Just a thought I had about trading up
  14. I'm not thrilled about losing that pick completely. If we do it this way then we still have two 2nds to work with
  15. We'd still have the same amount of picks and with more players coming out. The talent drop off would probably be comparable from the trade down next year to the trade up this year
  16. I don't hate it but then those picks absolutely need to be impact players. If it were for friermuth and then a CB2 whoever drops wouldn't be bad. I'd like to keep a 5th and 6th if possible for a 1t and a speedy offensive player
  17. I mean we'd be moving up in the 3rd too and getting an early 4th. I just feel like there might be a huge drop off in talent and this would prevent us from missing out
  18. The way the draft is looking I think it would be beneficial to trade up in the 2nd and 3rd rounds to ensure the Bills get contributors. How this gets accomplished is a bit of a conundrum.. so I got to thinking how to make this work. The idea that sprung to mind was to trade next year's 1st, this year's 2nd, 3rd, 5ths, and 6th for a 2nd next year, and a 2nd, 3rd, and 4th this year. It would have to be after a few picks go in the 2nd tonight but I think the value is close. It would look something like this when it's all said and done Bills receive Team X (Carolina) receives 39 61 73 93 113 161 174 213 2022 2nd 2022 1st The draft is light on talent this year with all of the opt outs and next year should have higher end players available in the second compared to this year. So the drop off isn't as significant losing a first next year since more (better) players will be available. The likelihood of this happening is probably negligible but a man can dream
  19. I'd love to come away with either Freiermuth or Meinerz in the second and one of Adebo, St Juste, or Melifonwu in the third. Then on day 3 pick up Marvin Wilson, or Tyler Shelvin, then Amon Ra St brown, Simi Fehoko, or Anthony Schwartz. Maybe a safety prospect after that and I'd be ecstatic
  20. Honestly I like the trade down for jaelin phillips but the rest of it is kinda meh and there's no way the draft 15 players
  21. BUF 30. Gregory Rousseau EDGE Miami (FL) BUF 61. Quinn Meinerz OC Wisconsin-Whitewater BUF 93. Pete Werner LB Ohio State BUF 161. Marvin Wilson DT Florida State BUF 174. Benjamin St-Juste CB Minnesota BUF 213. Tamorrion Terry WR Florida State BUF 236. Israel Mukuamu S South Carolina Really like this one. Everyone in the first 3 rounds was great value and really I just liked the way this one fell
  22. A couple trade backs to pick up some picks next year and get some solid developmental prospects and speed 61. Rondale Moore WR Purdue 89. Joe Tryon EDGE Washington 91. Brevin Jordan TE Miami (FL) 93. Kenneth Gainwell RB Memphis 161. Marvin Wilson DT Florida State 2022 CLE 2nd 2022 DET 3rd 2022 CLE 3rd
