  1. make that 32 - played 60% of snaps for Colts last season on 1 year at 4.7M https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/indianapolis-colts/xavier-rhodes-12305/stats-valuation/
  2. fall is right but fall down happened twice to Josh - slipped twice on last-second throws in the road loss at Tenn last season and again yesterday in Miami...wide open McKenzie...sigh another close loss was the unlikely Hail Mary catch on road versus Cardinals...our guys lost the jump ball if I had another 13 seconds I would mention one more...thats half of them left 24 points on the field yesterday...al we needed was 3 of those...
  3. Open PS slot cuz RB poached by Carolina plus he's from U of Wyoming and likely will be making more appearances in Josh's suite at Sabres games pounding beers with Knox and Sweeney...
  4. rest in peace..catcher...likely was the best player along with pitcher Craig Swan during a run of some very bad Mets teams in late 70s...as a youngster used to watch Mets on WOR channel 9 (Lindsay Nelson, Ralph Kiner, etc ) on cable along with Yankees on WPIX channel 11 (Phill Rizzuto, Frank White)..after Abbott and Costello move re-runs on Sundays (after church of course)...
  5. from Bills view... hoping for a tie, chargers win, think chiefs win is least desirable outcome...
  6. as we used to say in the military...you want it bad...you get it bad.
  7. of all todays games this one would be most helpful to the Bills... cardinals were very strong early last season - home against the chiefs - 2.5 dogs - 420 PM game - most of the country get the game The Cardinals are ravaged with injuries and DeAndre Hopkins is out due to being suspended. If Kansas City manages to lose this game, would be ideal for the Bills for overall AFC standing (ultimately home field playoffs) and provide good game tape for our upcoming game just as Jalen Ramsey (postgame podcast) mentioned the Bills (and our 6 foot 6 260 pound QB) used some plays that San Fran effectively used against Rams...he also said (ignorantly-arrogantly) that just 3 plays changed the outcome of Bills-Rams game; one of which was Diggs burning him long....
  8. only "starters" being a Feliciano (for how long ?) and the punter whom the fanbase felt was "ungodly" and only got the opportunity in Indy when the incumbent got hurt...
  9. cuz yesterday, with all the Biils games in prime-time. as a cord-cutter, I purchased NFL+ package to get all the Sunday local games, plus all prime-time (esp the Thurs nite Amazon prime game) and post-season games...good for an entire calendar year for $29.
  10. another coord made a pretty good intro: Hamlin led with two solo tackles on special teams. Crowder had a 21-yard return on only return; the vet called three fair catches ands seemed to make the right decision on when to field the ball and when to call for fair catch. No punts but Martin held 4 XPs and 1 FG for Bass-o-matic...usual pro performances by gunners: Taiwan and Siran burying the Rams at their 11-yard line....
  11. the best stat of the nite was when Stafford came off the field on very last possession with McVay on the field and he said "I cant throw the ball"....a good-solid defense gets better...Von Miller is who Beane, McD and Frazier thought he would-could be...elite on both sides on the ball...
  12. dont disagree with all the players posted, but the overall coaching and esp the play-calling by Dorsey was tremendous and a relief...just wish Josh wouldn't cas run as much...this has been a recording good mood to start the weekend and oh by the way, there is more football a comin..life is good
  13. cheffers 2021 crew threw the most flags of any NFL crew - more than shwan Hochuli which is hard to believe... looks like a couple of changes to his crew, rooks, and I dont see them throwing less flags esp at our rookie corners: https://www.nflpenalties.com/all-referees.php?year=2021
  14. Indirect football related, since it has to do with the Pegulas' daughter, Jessica, , and barnyard animals need to be fed between now and Thurs nite kick-off... https://www.wtatennis.com/rankings/singles below is limited extract from todays BN on Jessica Pegula..ranked 8th in the world ! Now the #1 ranked American woman...age 28, has won $2.25M alone in 2022 and now has over $5.3M in career winnings Aside from a wedding ring, Pegula has no fancy jewelry – no visual indicators that her parents are the billionaire owners of two professional sports teams. Nothing except a pair of beaded bracelets. “A 12-year-old could probably do these,” she said, smiling. But the meaning runs a little deeper than a simple childhood craft: One bracelet is yellow and blue – the colors of the Buffalo Sabres, which her parents Terry and Kim Pegula purchased in 2011, when Jessie, which her family calls her, was 17. The other bracelet is red and blue, for the Buffalo Bills, which her parents bought in 2014. They were made by her friend and competitor, the Australian tennis player Daria Saville. “She used to make these – she was doing it when she was hurt and wasn’t doing anything, and I was like, ‘Oh, make me Bills and Sabres colors,' ” said Pegula, who received the bracelets from Saville before the 2021 Australian Open. Pegula advanced to the quarterfinals of that tournament, which is one of tennis’ four major championships. She wore the Bills and Sabres beads during her matches – “(Saville) was watching me on TV and said, ‘Oh my God, you’re wearing my bracelets!’ ” Pegula recalled – and she still slips them on today. Subtle as they are, those bracelets may be the only indicator during a tennis match of Pegula’s family connection to the National Football League, National Hockey League, or extreme wealth. For most matches, you won’t see either of her parents in the crowd. Not that they aren’t watching. Terry Pegula, who is a passionate tennis fan even beyond his daughter’s career, watches nearly every one of her matches on TV or livestream, which is easier than ever to do, because her high Women’s Tennis Association ranking – eighth worldwide in singles; sixth in doubles; and the top American woman – means she’s always on the broadcast. Kim Pegula, who has been battling an undisclosed medical situation this summer, gets “so nervous that she can’t watch,” Jessie said. When Kim Pegula, who is the president of the Bills and Sabres, has attended tournaments in the past, she’ll step away from Jessie’s matches to check out the concessions. “She likes to think of it like that; it’s fun for her,” Jessie said. “She’ll just go eat. Literally, she can’t watch. She’ll sit there, fidgeting.” At home, Jessie added, her mom records matches but tends only to watch if her daughter wins. “She likes to know the outcome if she watches,” Jessie said.
  15. Ozzy is to perform at halftime...according to classic rock (The Home Of High Voltage Rock'N'Roll ). Fans in the stadium will be treated to a multi-song medley on the eve of the release of Ozzy's new Patient Number 9 album Fans watching at home on NBC and Peacock will be shown a portion of the performance during the halftime interval. the linky mentions the Raiders instead of Rams, the article originally did as well, has been corrected...must have been written or approved by Ozzy... keep on rockin in the corporate world.. https://www.loudersound.com/news/ozzy-osbourne-to-perform-half-time-set-at-la-raiders-vs-buffalo-bills?utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=socialflow&utm_content=classic-rock&fbclid=IwAR1S8g9Dzn8Lo7DS3sZLQ6tpLlxrG1Ax0lCN69tSC211ucKJrtGhHzvSuoU
  16. I think it speaks well of the Bills talent evaluation. - yeah all late round picks that have some chops, but: Anderson - now on third team Johnson - same wildgoose - same McCloud - same Who gets cut when we add: 1. Punter - this week or next ? 2. Tre - one month from now ? 3. Ike B - either one month or season-ending IR are the choices with that achiilles GR radio says Bills have singed to PS (so far) : Love (DE) Bryant (DT) Blackshear (RB)
  17. tho his rapping or wrapping career may come first, after all he is an entertainer....
  18. beano gonna take care of some internals: 1. upcoming 27 cuts will eat a little more cap space - good thing we dont cut many picks as the late-rounders have modest dead cap space... 2. PS cap space plus budget for in-season unknowns - injuries, vet depth signing, trade deadline move, etc 3. maybe....one vet contract maintenance ??? its gotta work for the Bills now more than before
  19. as a matter of fact, yes, but that would require a grasp of facts and reading comprehension skills, keep the job...IF you have one
  20. at end of the day: Beano is going to miss: 2nd round for Ford, 3rd rounder for Kelvin Benjamin come to mind Josh is going to throw the occasional INT our RBs are going to fumble once-in-awhile WRs going to drop passes as well... OL gonna jump early and hold on touchdowns - happened Saturday DBs gonna hold on DL sacks - happened Saturday we got 28 starts from Cody, we save about 500k in cap space(1.4M in salary gone, minus 900k in dead), got a fifth rounder back which is where Beano excels, Ford cant swing to tackle which is something the draft department now knows better how go to gauge, tihik RAS (Doyle, Brown). https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/arizona-cardinals/cody-ford-29074/stats-valuation/
  21. am expecting more use of the double TE offense has me keeping one more TE Morris over Sweeney or vice versa and cutting Blackshear, 4th RB is a dead roster spot, and returns handled by Shakir (P) and Cook (KO)...expect several Bills to be waived picked-up or traded in next 7-10 days. Its the pre-season....Denver didnt play any starters so the results were skewed somewhat and yes our backups played well, and that reflects good coaching, cohesive-teamwork not just talent...
  22. yeah I checked his draft card with D Brugler (the Beast)...he went undrafted, is slow-footed, runs a 5.1 40-time, must not have shown separation, blocking skills, improvement, etc
  23. Nelson (TE) , Josh Allen, Perreault, Lafontaine, Peca, Eichel, Resitsma,, Blank - sorry I stopped the show me thinks..
