  1. It is pretty obvious at this point having been to the Championship game, but Sal interviewed Mike North who is in charge of NFL scheduling .. prepare for many late nights https://www.audacy.com/wgr550/sports/bills/bills-likely-to-get-plenty-of-national-tv-prime-time-games-in-2021?utm_campaign=sharebutton&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_term=WGRAM "National Football League Vice President of Broadcast Planning, Mike North joined me on the SalSports... and Stuff podcast to discuss the 2021 NFL schedule and made it clear that the Bills will be showc
  2. Dean Kindig I believe used to be on this board and had tremendous insights. In particular he would provide day by day training camp feedback on the various players. He has put together a Bills draft projection which is very insightful. He has us taking a Center in the first round and no RB at all. The full article is here and worth a read. http://buffalofambase.com/2021/04/09/dean-kindigs-final-astronotes-by-position/
  3. Doctors state that they expect he will be back for the season. Glad to hear it .. must have been tough on him. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/20/bills-expect-tommy-sweeney-back-after-developing-myocarditis-last-year/
  4. I actually stumbled upon this interview with his college coach .. he basically likes Rosen as a person but his answers about how bad he wants it, how teachable he is are really surprising (and not in a positive coach cover for player way). Lack of humility, always "knowing" the right way .. definitely the blueprint for failure and with the 49ers drafting a QB it is not poor Rosen it is the 49ers looked and didn't like what they saw so they are getting a new young QB and maybe Rosen sticks as the third, but likely not. https://www.si.com/nfl/49ers/news/jim-mora-jr-explains-why-49ers
  5. Here is an interview with Zach Moss discussing his first time meeting Josh .. bottom line is everyone seems to indicate he just acts like a regular dude...
  6. @Buffalo716how dare you confuse the narrative of always tackling downfield with facts that contradict that ... next you are going to say that Josh Rosen wasn’t the most NFL ready QB in the 2018 draft .. let me just say our feelings don’t care about your facts
  7. It’s nice that the Bills players are not lighting up the police blotter.. instead this nice story ..love the shnowman https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/18/dion-dawkins-hosts-a-food-giveaway-in-his-hometown/
  8. Sorry you are correct .. I should have been clearer ... it can work out, but it often does not. We have successfully traded up (aka Josh) and I do think QBs are in particular a position where you have to take chances because if you don't have a QB it is VERY hard to win in the NFL. The Falcons traded up for Julio and that worked out pretty well also. I personally am just a believer in more darts equates to more opportunities to hit the mark .. and Ido get that trading away higher picks to own the later rounds there can be problematic as well.
  9. The Ricky Williams trade shows why that is not a good strategy. The NFL Draft is a crap shoot to some extent. The 5th round guy ends up being a solid player and the first round player ends up being a bust. I would have been happy back on draft day for the Bills to move up for Ed Oliver. Let's say they gave up their second and 4th last year to move up[ to take a legitimate tackle Isaiah Wilson or even a WR Tee Higgins. The first one obviously is a bust and the second is not better than who we got in the 4th Gabe Davis. As someone else mentioned .. depth is huge as people get hurt and the salar
  10. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/13/nflpa-sends-memo-to-players-recommending-they-skip-in-person-workouts/ Seattle and Denver players are opting out. Will be really interesting to see how this impacts the season .. if at all (i.e., teams that participate vs teams that don't)
  11. I think Diggs cares about his legacy .. and there is a VERY, VERY short list of HOF WRs who moved around teams a lot and one of the keys is having stellar quarterback play.
  12. I don't have a subscription, but PFT referenced the article and focused on the recruitment of Emmanuel Sanders by Stefon Diggs. It is good to see him proactively trying to recruit talent to the 716. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/13/stefon-diggs-well-be-able-to-lean-on-emmanuel-sanders-in-crunch-time/ Here is the Athletic link if anyone does have a subscription https://theathletic.com/2513990/2021/04/13/im-definitely-feeling-the-love-1-year-later-stefon-diggs-is-starting-to-feel-at-home-in-buffalo/
  13. Cody Ford should ask for his fine money back .. he was fined for what the NFL considers a legal block ... I would have my agent all over the league office
  14. On the bright side I got great deals on a recliner, cat food, and I was able to name a star after me. CorkScrewHill in the new name of the North Star. On the down side I sprained my index finger trying to click on one of the ads. I am having to use voice recognition software to enter this and my finger is in a cast .. thanks OBD ;).
  15. Since several people mentioned Dean Marlowe .. he was visiting with the Lions this week https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/07/dean-marlowe-visits-with-lions/
