  1. I totally agree with you about Brandon Marshall. I find him to be a very intelligent and charismatic person who has admitted his flaws and has great self-awareness.
  2. My wife said to not give them my credit card number. I told her there was nothing to worry about. THEN I saw this post. *****!!!
  3. Please don't bring up Brian Moorman... it brings back traumatically bad memories...
  4. Some context from yesterday's The Athletic: "While it’s true the Bills play zone most of the time, so does almost every other team in the NFL. As they have added defensive talent since the start of the McDermott era, the Bills evolved into calling man coverage at the 11th-highest rate from 2019 through 2021, according to TruMedia and Pro Football Focus. (However against the Rams) Defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier and a revamped defensive line ran zone coverage a whopping 92.4 percent of the game. It was a 32.1 percent increase from the Bills’ regular season zone rate in 2021 (60.3%)." As far as your concerns about drafting a situational player in the first round, the Bills obviously don't view Elam as a situational player. They view him as a player who will excel in the 40% of man coverage snaps and a player with elite traits who they can coach up to excel in zone schemes. Most Bills fans view McFrazier as "defensive back whisperers" who have a long track record of taking "average talent" and moulding that talent into productive secondaries. As a first rounder the Bills expect to develop Elam into a starting shutdown corner who can excel in zone as well as "travel" with opponents top receivers and win that matchup.
  5. A word as long as abbreviations oughta... well, you know... NM = nonmetallic aka Romex
  6. And as posted in the related thread, the interception to McKenzie happened at the 24 yard line whereas the fumble by Moss happened at the 16 yard line. There's no plausible scenario where those two drives end in punts.
  7. Thanks for finishing the drive. 👍 Upthread I mentioned that based on something I had read, the occurrence of one team not punting occurs about 2% of the time. That number and the number you calculated are pretty close so yes, going puntless in 3 of the last 5 (and 4 of the last 6 when including the playoffs) is an amazing accomplishment for the Bills.
  8. When you look good you feel good. When you feel good you play good. There's a third thing but I can't remember what it is.
  9. Well rather than sharpshoot my spoon feeding attempts, just do the math brother. I drove the ***** ball down the field, put it in the end zone.
  10. And I'll mention again that the Titans will be without arguably their two best run blockers from last season, Rodger Saffold and David Quessenberry. I'm a bit concerned that Oliver and Settle are not practicing but I don't expect we'll see the Titans rushing attack of 2021.
  11. In fairness it again needs to be mentioned that Bates is playing right guard this year after playing predominantly on the left side last year. Also we're judging his play in week 1 versus a very tough assignment. Isn't it actually likely that Bates' play will improve? I would think it would.
  12. Indy GM Chris Ballard who assembled the roster is not at least as culpable as Reich? He hired Reich. It'll be interesting to see what Irsay does when the wheels come off. At least it had no deck chairs seeing as it was a blanken ship.
