Rookie (4/8)



  1. so the bills play 4 road games in 5 weeks early in the year?
  2. Can someone explain to me how you think the Bills-Chiefs trade came together? Who says what first? Do the Chiefs tell the Bills who they are taking? I don't get it.
  3. The Super Bowl has gotten unbelievably competitive over the last decade. So I don't even agree with the original premise. 2024: Chiefs 25, 49ers 22 - multi-possession OT under new rules. All-time classic. 2023: Chiefs 38, Eagles 35 - chiefs rally from 10 pts down, kick game-winning FG with seconds left 2022: Rams 23, Bengals 20 - game-ending sack kills bengals late rally attempt 2021: Bucs 31, Chiefs 9 - game sucked, but fitting for the covid year 2020: Chiefs 31, 49ers 20 - score not indicative of the game, chiefs trailed by 10 with 8:30 left and hit a 3rd-and-15 to revive their chances 2019: Patriots 13, Rams 3 - snooze fest 2018: Eagles 41, Patriots 33 - Philly Special, great game 2017: Patriots 34, Falcons 28 - Pats rally from 28-3 down, win in overtime. All-time classic. 2016: Broncos 24, Panthers 10 - boring game, uncompelling matchup, game sucked. 2015: Patriots 28, Seahawks 24 - arguably best finish in super bowl history, INT at goal line instead of Lynch running from 1 yd out. All-time classic. Overall there have been way more good Super Bowls than bad since the '99 Rams-Titans game.
  4. Rice will be punished much more severely by the NFL than he will be by the law. I would bet a lot of money on that. Rice's lawyer is a Texas state senator, Rice doesn't have a history of trouble, KC's owner went to the same school as Rice (SMU) and is also the richest man in Dallas with strong ties to the area that remain today. The level of transparency being brought forth by the lawyer suggests to me that they know Rice will get a slap on the wrist based on Texas law and their connections with people that matter. I think the self accountability act is more directed toward the NFL/Goodell. And it will fail. Even though this isn't comparable to the Henry Ruggs case, I think Goodell will want to come down hard on the speeding/reckless driving aspect of this incident and send a message. Minimum suspension: 4 games. Most likely suspension: 6 games. Possible suspension: 8 games.
  5. it's 10.8 grams. that's equivalent to 0.38 ounces. which is nothing, and certainly doesn't rise to felony. these aggregator accounts are awful.
  6. NEVER trade up for a wide receiver unless you have absolutely unmatched levels of conviction that he's gonna be a superstar. What have we seen in past drafts to suggest that NFL GM's are particularly skilled at properly rating receivers? 2023 WRs drafted in order: Smith-Njigba, Quentin Johnson, Zay Flowers, Jordan Addison. 2022 (in order): Drake London, Garrett Wilson, Chris Olave, Jameson Williams, Jahan Dotson, Treylon Burks 2021 (in order): Henry Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy, Ceedee Lamb, Jalen Reagor, Justin Jefferson, Brandon Aiyuk 2020 (in order): Jamarr Chase, Jaylen Waddle, Davonta Smith, Kadarius Toney, Rashod Bateman A few years prior, we saw Corey Davis, Mike Williams and John Ross all go top 10 in the draft. The year prior, Round 1 WRs consisted of Corey Coleman, Will Fuller, Josh Doctson, Laquan Treadwell. Kevin White was a semi recent top 10 WR. The Bills took Sammy Watkins fourth overall in 2014. I would obviously much rather draft 8th or 18th than 28th. But spending draft capital to move into those spots - which merely earns you the opportunity to guess wrong at extra cost - when you have a reasonable chance of getting someone just as good if not better later in the draft at no additional risk - doesn't seem like the correct move. Especially with a roster that could benefit from building depth at other positions.
  7. there was one kickoff return TD the entire XFL season and i believe it was in the very first game.
  8. There's no guarantee it would have been a third rounder, and even if it was, it would be at the end of the 3rd round aka it's basically an early 4th. If the Titans are a non playoff team as expected, KC will pick mid-3rd round at worst.
  9. Brady's familiarity with Samuel, and Samuel already being familiar with Brady's system (or at least terminology) makes me think this has a good chance of working out just fine for the Bills. Free agency is a crap shoot, especially at the receiver position, because it can be hard to fully understand: a) why or why not a player was or wasn't successful at the previous stop b) how exactly the acquired player will fit your scheme c) what the player's work ethic/leadership ability looks like Brady knows the answer to all three of these questions.
  10. KC put it together in the playoffs, but think people are forgetting that there was a full-season sample size of their offense being pretty mediocre. The Chiefs finished with two more TDs than...the Broncos. And they scored 25 fewer points than the Colts and Browns, who both used backup QBs the entire year. There's only so much a great QB and play caller can do against defenses that can defend against essentially a 15-yard field because no deep threat exists and no WRs can get open (and when they do, they drop it.) Rashee Rice's usage going way up late saved the season.
  11. Why would this signing preclude them from taking Mike Williams out of curiosity? Brown costs 7 mill vs this year's cap. After the Mahomes restructure, KC had about 15-16 mill in cap space for 2024. If they trade Sneed as expected, that will clear another 20 mill. So KC would have about 28 mill in cap space with no obvious holes anywhere on the roster other than a likely desire to add another receiver and someone to compete for the job at left tackle.
  12. I wouldn't say the Bills have neglected WR as much as people here suggest. They traded for Diggs, who was and/or certainly became a top-5 receiver in the league. He wasn't cheap. They signed John Brown who had a great 2019 season (72 catches, 1060 yards), then flamed out a year later. They signed Cole Beasley in 2019, and he posted two really good seasons and had a solid third year. There were reasons to think Isaiah McKenzie could take over in the slot, but he fell out of favor with McDermott and obviously underachieved. Everyone here (rightly) thought Gabe Davis would turn into a superstar after the 2021 Divisional playoff loss. The Bills were widely considered to have one of the best 1-2 punches in the league. Davis then was hit-or-miss the rest of his tenure. The Bills have made some low-risk, high-upside efforts at filling out the WRs corps with Crowder, Sherfield, Harty. Crowder was legitimately an exciting addition but got injured instantly. Shakir showed promise and got a bigger role as time went on and now appears to be a long-term option. I don't know. When you're paying top dollar for Diggs and had what you thought was your #2 in Davis, while having solid vets like Brown and Beasley in prior years, I can certainly understand why the Bills weren't going all-in on drafting receivers. Besides, they've been drafting at the end of the 1st round. Some of these drafts have been pretty top-heavy with the elite WRs.
  13. He reportedly had quite a few suitors, but is choosing to bet on himself in 2024 in hopes of getting a bigger payday next year. Also, how do you say no to this?
