  1. Beane discusses Knox, Ford picks and getting Lev as i drafted Free agent https://www.nbcsports.com/video/buffalo-bills-gm-brandon-beane-talks-past-nfl-draft-success-failure McDermott Talks building team and offense https://www.nbcsports.com/video/buffalo-bills-gm-brandon-beane-talks-past-nfl-draft-success-failure Interviewer asked good questions IMHO
  2. It really shows the real improvement ( with Stafford as an outlier) is between years 1 and 2. Josh will need to beat the average improvement to be anything other than a very average QB per the analysis https://www.buffalorumblings.com/2020/2/28/21155523/how-big-of-a-leap-should-buffalo-bills-expect-josh-allen-to-make-in-2020
  3. I agree that they were worth more when we traded them than they are now, but we were not ready to compete back then so it was sound strategy to trade them away and get resources that would help us once we turned the corner. The Patriots sell high approach to staying competitive over the long haul
  4. Yes .. in the playoffs, but as stated he is on his second team. In the regular season he only had 673 yards which is 100 yards less than Cole Beasley as an example and the Chiefs have made it clear that while they would like to keep him it will not be at his current salary.
  5. Glenn, Watkins, Dareus, Tyrod - all big name guys here in Buffalo back when they were traded .. and each on there second team or soon to be with reduced pay along the way. Of them, I wouldn't mind getting Tyrod (as a backup) back at some point and Glenn was always a stand-up guy .. due to injuries he would need to be cheap. Overall it looks like the Bills FO made the right call on these players.
  6. One thing I found interesting is that if Josh had not been available neither Rosen nor Lamar would have been the choice at number 12. With Lamar they may have felt that he could be had later in the first, but the not taking a QB first would have been a big surprise.
  7. I remember one of the Bills defenders .. I think it was Talley say they had gone the first half with extra DBs but in the second half they went with a more traditional defense. The oilers already had a history of choking so after we scored got the onside kick and scored again .. the offense started tightening up
  8. Sounds like trending in a very positive direction. Like his potential as a piece in our rotational line. https://billswire.usatoday.com/2020/02/21/buffalo-bills-harrison-phillips-acl-really-well/
  9. I would likely feel excited .. because we would have a new coach and be drafting a new QB as we would have been horrible and McDermott would I imagine have been fired. I was always excited when we started over because there was a chance. I would also be kicking myself because we missed out on Mahommes, and Watson, and that Josh Allen kid, but I would be hoping that our new QB would be able to finally change all of that. So ... happy we went against the crowd and chose Allen over Rosen.
  10. Talks a bit about what he got from his dad. Letting Antoine Winfield walk was one of those bad decisions that led to the drought. Would love to see him on the Bills. https://touchdownwire.usatoday.com/2020/02/16/like-father-like-son-how-antoine-winfield-jr-echoes-the-play-style-of-his-pro-bowl-dad/2/
  11. A little good .. and a little bad with a lot of potential (which is how I feel). A very balanced take. https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/articles/every_throw_graded_an_ultimate_scouting_report_of_buffalos_josh_allen/s1_13132_31350035
  12. Ed Oliver was 18, Singletary 26, and Cody Ford 44. https://draftwire.usatoday.com/gallery/nfl-rookies-2019-rankings-nick-bosa-josh-jacobs-kyler-murray/ Building through the draft and focused free agency will be the key to getting on top and staying there. We should avoid overpriced free agents .. even if they are ours.
  13. Cody Ford's response from Twitter Cody Ford ✞ @Cody_Ford74 "Thank You Bills Fans...the money you guys raised through the go fund me for my fine was donated to charity....My fine was reduced to just over 4K...I still believe I did nothing wrong on that play #BillsMafia" Classy!
  14. There will be others that can be had as well .. Interesting article by CBSSports documenting some of the worst positioned teams and the sacrifices they may need to make. This is why you do not overspend on any one player as you quickly get into an uncomfortable cap position. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/news/nfl-2020-these-five-teams-are-facing-difficult-personnel-decisions-cap-issues-and-more/
  15. Was talking to a Jets fan yesterday ... and he was raving not so much about how well Josh plays but rather how he plays .. all out all the time. He wants to see more of Josh on 📺
