  1. I think a lot of fans are going to be disappointed with how the Diggs situation plays out especially if he 'turns heel' so to speak and holds out or becomes a lockerroom distraction. But you make a valid point about that dreaded 30 mark and even though there are many WR's that can be dominant well into their mid 30's if the same logic applies to Beasely (who some fans couldn't wait to see leave) it's going to apply here as well and why you can't give him a big money extension.
  2. If you are an UFA not sure you can say goodbye since both sides have technically moved on. I appreciate what he has meant to this team through the years and he certainly had a great stretch during the Marrone era. But there's a reason why Hughes hasn't been signed yet by another team and may only find himself a veteran type of minimum deal in the coming months closer to camp. And unless he's willing to do that with another contender looking strictly for a depth/rotation guy his NFL career may very well be over.
  3. Honestly surprised he still lives in the area since he's been out of the league for so long. But another disappointing player on a very long list that came through here during the drought years.
  4. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up back with Brady on the Bucs especially since Brady got his way and forced Arians to 'retire'. Because not sure any other franchise wants any part of his antics at this point.
  5. He definitely had a substandard stretch but again let's not forget JA17 was terrible most of 2018/2019 where Mahomes was the league MVP in essentially his rookie season (2018 first year starter after sitting behind Alex Smith as a rookie in 2017). Not sure why JA17 was so inconsistent at times last year other than oline play but if he plays anywhere close to the level he did in the playoffs for the balance of the 2022 regular season this team should easily lock up the #1 seed in the AFC.
  6. Even though there are ways to circumvent the salary cap like the Saints did for years and the Bills are now doing, at some point you have to let certain players go and I definitely don't see both Hyde and Poyer here beyond 2022 which is why it's imperative to try and win a championship this season why we still have them.
  7. That's really the only hole in his game left. If JA17 can be consistent over a 17 game regular season there's really no more arguments in comparing him to Mahomes. Everyone has a down game here and there but Mahomes has rarely had those outside of the SB loss to the Bucs a few years ago which is probably still his worst NFL game in his career.
  8. It's a very misleading contract given Wagner's age, likely structured very similar to Von Miller's deal with the Bills (a 2 year deal vs 5 years in reality) If we would have traded Edmunds we could have easily made this deal for Wagner if not slightly better.
  9. Wishful thinking since everyone is looking for the next Tyreek Hill type of player, but there's honestly a better chance at this point of Stevenson not even making the team this summer vs making the roster and contributing. Still pretty sure we are going to add another WR at some point in the draft and/or FA which also diminishes the chances of Stevenson being on the final roster.
  10. Again, this is also why I woudn't be shocked if Diggs is moved. He's been great for this team but looking strictly at the production on paper, the Vikings landed the better, younger, and most importantly cheaper player with the pick we sent them for Diggs.
  11. Tua is not the same type of player as JA17, but these type of comparisons do hold some weight and exactly why Miami is going all in with him in year three adding a dynamic weapon like Hill just like the Bills did with Diggs in his 3rd (and breakout) season. All the ingredients are there for the dolphins to take another step in 2022 and win 11+ games which puts even more pressure on McDermott and this team to be consistent from opening day until the end of the season to ensure they win a 3rd consecutive division title (and guarantee themselves a playoff spot). Definitely can't take the middle of season off again and go through another 3-5 type of stretch.
  12. Won't be a popular opinion, but personally I would move Diggs before Knox. There's no way there is going to be room to keep him long term with given the current WR market that is only going to keep climbing higher. And no matter what people think and read into his social media, Diggs is not taking a 'hometown' discount for this team. He knows he's worth big time money and guarantee those demands have already been made by him and his agent to Beane the minute the Adams and Hill deals and contracts were done.
  13. I still wouldn't rule it out given the amount of cap space it would free up and the fact we aren't likely paying him upwards of $15M - $20M a year going forward. It makes too much sense to move him now instead of keeping him for a lame duck season even if he were to put together his best NFL season in a contract year (which would make him even more expensive anyway).
  14. For fans that insist Bease production was starting to slip this would be a valid reason as to why. But it's not all that shocking since he is such a small dude taking a beating amongst beasts out there. Same reason guys like Edelmen were constantly banged up and on the patriots injury report seemingly every week. Still think we are going to miss him this year and hope Dorsey figures out a way to compensate for it.
  15. Not if you are looking for a stud DB who could be even better than Tre White, but other than that I would tend to agree the Bills should (and ultimately probably will) stay put.
  16. Bills pash rush wasn't an issue last year against the Dolphins, in fact both Rouseau and Epenesa had their career best games against them last year. Again, I think what's missing in the discussion is that eventually the Dolphins will figure out a way to beat the Bills and 2022 will provide their best chance yet under a new HC and revamped roster.
  17. It's good to hear we are still doing the obvious in terms of pursuing a veteran DB. At some point though the market is going to dry up quickly, likely before or right after the draft.
  18. All signs would point to DB because can't see them moving up for oline or WR. Also Edmunds is the only guy worth anything in a trade to move up and still makes sense in a separate individual trade scenario. Throwing in useless roster space like Moss or Ford wouldn't move the needle considering we'd be lucky to get a 6th or 7th rounder for either of them right now straight up. Either way this is an interesting rumor to monitor.
  19. If McDaniel is truly some sort of genius and savant the Dolphins will eventually find a way to beat the Bills soon even with mediorce QB play. And obviously by hiring an offensive minded guy this time around they are doubling down on Tua and assuming that McDaniel can bring out the best in him like he did with Jimmy G in SF. If that happens and Tua does take another step still think the fish are right up there with the Bills as not only as potential division winners, but SB contenders.
  20. There are two schools of though on this, if your QB/offense is hot you probably want them to get the ball first in overtime. However now that each team is ensured at least one possession I would lean on deferring every time since you still have a chance to stop the other team first and then can just win with a FG instead of TD on your next possession.
  21. Ties in the NFL are one of the dumbest rules in all professional sports. No other league does this and really surprised they have done away with this yet ensuring regular season games extend beyond overtime if needed to determine a winner.
  22. I'll never understand the Fitz obsession by some bills fans especially when you consider he was a big part of what was wrong with this franchise the prior 17 years before the current regime came here (i.e. rewarding a mediorce player with a massive contract because of a few good games). He's not coming back to Buffalo unless it's as a fan or playing on an opposing team so time to move on.
  23. This would be the smart move for a number of reasons, if anything to keep Allen healthy and ensure his career has real longevity instead of following the path of Cam Newton five years down the road. I'm all for Allen taking off and making plays when he needs to but the designed run stuff needs to go moving forward.
  24. Now this is a bit of a headscratcher. And even if we would have lost Bates it doesn't make much sense to sign a guy that likely isn't even going to play in 2022 unless it's strictly under the agreement that if he's not healthy before the season starts he'll get cut without any penalty to the Bills.
  25. I'm actually surprised this happened and now it's pretty clear this team views Bates as locked into a starting spot this season.
