  1. A single season of football is just so hard to predict.  Maybe the overall roster took a step back but it could work out to be the same deep playoff run chances if Milano stays healthy for example. It takes a ton of guys stepping up huge to overcome something like aj klein getting forced into a major role against playoff mahomes  
     

    I do think Hyde,poyer,Diggs,and Morse were a bit overrated last year for stretches of games and the roster falloff is not nearly as big as the pundits are projecting but I guess we shall see

    ESPN did the QB rankings based in part on NFL exec input and Josh Allen was No. 3 behind Burrow.  I just think to myself where do I apply to be an NFL exec bc it doesn’t take a ton of intelligence to know that Josh Allen is a better player.  Burrow is really good, but he isn’t as durable or electric, or even as talented.  He can be deadly accurate but he can also prone to getting sacked a ton and flustered by good DLs.  I’m sorry, but I feel like Josh’s value is based on his team’s performance that has not been due to his effort outside of Bengals game.  I get the turnover complaint, but that isn’t an issue when the stakes are highest. He doesn’t crap in his hat in the big moments. The defensive coaching has been plain and simple bad in most playoff losses and mediocre at best in wins.  If you want an outlier to take out the Pats game is a good one…for the Defense. 

    It’s pretty much splitting hairs when you get to the top 3 or so qbs.  Its real difficult to normalize for the talent these guys are surrounded by to really rank one as significantly better than the other 

     

    If you swapped defenses in that last bills/chiefs playoff game I think the bills run away with it as one example then there’s a pretty big shift in the mahomes vs Allen debate even though the big discrepancy in that game was on the defensive side.  Way too much stock is put into a football game being qb vs qb

    After Gabe Davis 4 TD playoff game did you presume that he would just become a superstar with more targets?

     

    That's what @HappyDays is talking about.

     

    Giving Gabe more targets lead to diminishing returns in 2022.

     

    His catch % dropped,  his passer rating plummeted 20 points and 50% more targets tripled the amount of interceptions thrown his direction.

     

    Samuel is a good, journeyman WR.   A really good WR3.   7 years of film and stats to prove what he can and can't do.

     

    His best season in the NFL(under Joe Brady) he was WR3 getting WR3 CB matchups.

     

    Part of the reason "the extrapolaters" were wrong about Gabe Davis was that his skillset didn't allow him to get open against CB1's and CB2's.   So when he got elevated,  he got worse.

    Seemed like he and Josh just didn’t gel either…they were always reading those option routes differently

    I'm not scared of Tua, but he is good. Not great, but good. I'd rather the Dolphins not sign him and then see them struggle to find another QB for a few years. Even if they find another good QB, it will take 2 or 3 years for him to develop, and then there is no guarantee he is better than Tua. Chances are he'll be worse.

     

    So, I'd rather see a QB carousel in Miami, honestly. Finding an elite QB is extremely hard to do. That's why they have to pay Tua, because even though he isn't elite, he is good, and the alternative is far too risky.

    Paying a good not great qb the amount of money he’s looking for is kind of the kiss of death though in the medium/long term.  Short term though yea it helps if he stays

    We haven't added, we've subtracted. Davis, Harty, and Sherfield all have replacements on the roster. Diggs does not.

     

    But my point is that every single offense can argue they have "multiple good options." That's a meaningless statement because it's the utter floor of any offense that exists in the modern NFL.

    If you replaced Diggs for mvs in our playoff loss we probably win 😂. The dude made a couple big contested catches.  
     

    in all seriousness though idk why people are talking like we’ve gotta replace prime Diggs to upgrade what we had last year.  Diggs was playing like a decent wr2 down the stretch.  Could be he was mentally checked out and a change of scenery will help but I’m not so sure.  He’s never had burner speed and seemed to get pretty unreliable with contested catches

    If only that's relevant to what I said.

    @ me when McDermott puts together a record like that with some of the schlubbs that have started games for Andy Reid.

    Josh Allen makes every person at OBD look like they know what they're doing.

    Edit: also, let me know if McD holds that average over another 300 games like Reid has.

    The last couple years have been pretty equal in qb help imo…back in the tyreek and Kelce days the chiefs offensive talent far outclassed ours. 
     

    I don’t think ‘Andy Reid has coached up schlubs while the bills have had more talent’ has ever been accurate

    Not really. We threaded the ball control needle perfectly for a while there but it all fell apart on the final few drives and it required Allen to create magic several times just to keep us in the game. That offense we showed against the Chiefs is not close to a sustainable championship caliber offense.

    Oh yea the last few drives the chiefs locked down hard I wouldn’t argue that…that first half though the running game was killing them.  We absolutely dominated top and were running on them at will

    Why keep bringing players who will not not make the final roster I keep hearing zero risk, but don’t they take limited snaps and opportunities  from the young guys ? 

    I’d be surprised if claypool doesn’t make the team personally but idk if that’s a majority opinion lol

    Scary bunch...

    Secondaries are trembling with fear

    Kincaid gets a bunch of defensive attention and he doesn’t factor in here just because of the technicality that he’s officially a tight end I guess.  makes it look a little better imo.  
     

    i dont think they’re trembling a whole lot less than the second half of last year with how diggs was playing but I understand the point

    We have Josh Allen, and the plan is to design an offense built for JJ McCarthy? If that's the plan I don't support it. Build a dominant passing offense capable of steamrolling teams.

    I mean the running game hurt the chiefs pretty  bad in that playoff game.  If we weren’t controlling the clock as well the chiefs would’ve scored like 30 more points just dunking on aj klein all game lol

    Dude he’s an idiot. You cant fix stupid. He needs a new brain. Worse thing is that he makes the roster (because we are desperate and he is way more talented than the competition) because you just know he will F up again. 

    I mean he’s financially motivated to at least appear to not be an idiot for one year so he will fix himself short term imo…can he still play is the question

    Tua has not been garbage no matter how bad bills fans want to rip on him 

    Yea but he joined Miami midseason…that offense is not an easy transition where you can just step in cold and go off.  He undoubtedly would’ve been better with a full offseason there but how much better is the interesting question 

  13. 1 minute ago, TheBrownBear said:

    I mean, we know he can play when motivated.  He's 25 and doesn't have an injury history.  He should just be hitting his prime now.  The question is whether his attitude is right.  If he's suddenly transformed into a hardworking, team first guy, then this is a great signing.  I don't have much hope, since you don't really see guys just flip their personalities in their mid-20s.  I guess Cris Carter is a guy that turned it around.  Just have to wait and see.

    I think you do short term when there’s a ton of money at stake.  I could see him workin hard to hit one last pretty big contract then he can phone it in

     

    Heck that’s probably what he was disgruntled about in the first place.  If your teams passing game is garbage that’s costing you money in the future.  I’m sure a bunch of teams were interested in him on a deal like this but he’s got a legitimate path to wr2 in Buffalo and josh Allen and chose us

    The 3 teams in the past 4 years were probably thinking the same 

    His last two seasons were uprooted by midseason trades where he was dumped into a new offensive system and the years before that he went for 800+ yards back to back.  Don’t think he’s really old enough to just call it quits and likely has to prove he can still play.

     

    idk if he’ll return to form but seeing as there’s essentially zero risk this is a great signing.

    this where I'm at 100%.  If he's trouble or doesn't produce in camp....easy cut. 

     

    IF IF IF he's a changed man with a lot to prove.....could be jackpot for us 

    I think he kind of has to have a lot to prove…he’s gotta have a big year to get a modest payday from someone then he can coast if he wants to lol

     

    hes not like OBJ who has been rakin in pretty big contracts for years

    He's been absolutely terrible a couple of years running. Miami took him on this season and he did nothing there. They don't want him.

    I mean he played for pit and Chicago back to back which is pretty much wr hell lol then got traded to Miami midseason.  Not sure how high the expectations for him should’ve been in a partial season under a new offensive system.  
     

    if he gets his head out of his a** and has a full offseason with a team that can actually throw the ball he could be dangerous. If not, cut him.  Great signing imo

    This how you know a fan is jaded.

     

    Bills go on a great run and take the division when it looked bleak.  2.5 games behind with like 6 games to go?

    Not a great run by the Bills....it was a miracle and Miami SHOULD have won it. 

    It’s all a scheduling mirage with Miami…they always have like a 6 week run in the middle of a season that’s an absolute joke I just don’t understand it.  They build an artificial lead then come crashing down when they hit a tough part of the schedule.  
     

    feels like they should be better because they lost a bunch of games to close out the season but I think 10-11 wins for them was exactly right

    Fortunately for them, there's enough bad teams to carry them to the playoffs. It took an epic collapse at the end to lose the division last year. 

     

    Even our own defense hasn't proven they can stop elite QBs either (especially not in the playoffs). That's why I've wanted the Bills to stop investing so many resources into D & go all in on just trying to overwhelm with offense. 

     

    If we can't shut down (or even contain) Burrow or Mahomes in the playoffs, we need to be able to out gun them. Dolphins seem to think the same thing, only their QB isn't as good as ours.

    It wasn’t really an ‘epic collapse’ imo.    They just had a prolonged layup game period on the schedule then a tough stretch and fell on their face in the tough stretch same as the year before.  Won one game they could’ve lost against Dallas and blew one game against a bad team against tennessee.    If you reshuffled their schedule you’d probably get the same exact result with them never looking like they’re running away with it 

     

    im on the other side of the defense thing but im sure im in the minority haha. I think if we had one of Bernard/milano in place of aj klein that chiefs game is a comfortable win 

     

    I do think investing in a bunch of pretty good dlinemen is stupid though with the way they have been officiating the playoffs.  The amount of uncalled OL holding is out of control so unless you have a beast that’s fighting through that it just isn’t worth it.  Seems like we’re adding bigger body receivers to fight through that grabby chiefs secondary/add more run blocking support this year
