  1. Have all the offensive players play defense and the defensive plays, play offense. FG kickers punt, punters kick FG, offensive lineman have to hold for kicks.
  2. Reading the title of the thread, thought you were debating having your contract changed. Was going to ask if you were looking for more or less money!
  3. Isn't there something on the back in the real fine print that says something about not being allowed to sell over face value?
  4. OK so that was the year they lost to Washington. Recall Washington kind of came out of no where that year. Meanwhile Bills just lost to Giants in SB and probably were the better team.
  5. Wow, this is scary being the favorite!! Trying to recall during the early 90's were the Bills the overall pre-season SB favorite any of those years?
  6. Yeah just so they can out all the bad parts! Well actually Netflix isn't under the same rules are they??
  7. Is it any different or worse than west coast viewership when the games start at 8:20 eastern time. People in LA are just getting out of work. Even now if working the next day I (and many others) may turn off the TV by 10:30 unless it's a game/team I really want to see I'm guessing they will try to have west coast teams in the late game and east coast teams the early game
  8. So I took your list and edited slightly, hope you don't mind. I went through all the positions and below the names in black added a number in Red that IMO will be the number of total players on the roster in each position group based off numbers they had in prior years and whats typical. Taking your original 33 I added 20 more to bring the total up to the 53 man roster. Likely some combination of the names in red and blue will be chosen. In the case of RB I put 2 or 3, WR I put 3 or 4 ? and TE 1? I'm thinking will be a total of 6 additional players in those three position groups, how that exactly shakes out TBD. Wouldn't be shocked to see one less DL and one more LB too.
  9. Agree with the development part, though it is much easier to let guys like Milano and Phillips develop and take some lumps early on as generally the results aren't as catastrophic as a bad hold. And also get a decent $$ saving going from Haack to Araiza too. Having said all that do agree 95% likely Araiza will be the holder. I do wonder though if Barkley is on the PS how much will he be paid? Will he get the required minimum or will he be paid more as there's just a minimum amount required, teams can pay more. Would they keep him at the same level he just signed for??
  10. I don't disagree with you at all. I think he will be the holder. My point was if somehow he was absolutely terrible like Lucy from Charlie Brown level bad, think there's be a better chance they'd keep Haack than bother training Barkley as either way it's an extra roster slot for a holder only. In that case may as well use the guy who you know is very good at it. Also agree with Barkley being on PS and yes with new rules could easily call him up. But that still means using an extra roster slot on Sundays for a "Holder". Which goes back to my point, may as well use Haack then just to hold. But highly doubt it will come down to that. Very likely Araiza will be holding come September. Araiza also has too much hype to ever sneak onto PS so he will make the roster. Does bring up one question, has the NFL announced are the PS rules the same again for this coming season?
  11. No way are they keeping 3 QB's for this on the active roster. If it really came down to Araiza is terrible at holding, better chance they'd keep Haack for holding rather than start training someone else, or use someone else who's a core ST player.
  12. Hmmmm.... So when I posted, didn't go through the numbers that closely, just based it on the concept of well if you're replacing someone below the 51 line with someone above the 51 who's salary is higher, there has to be a savings. Going through the numbers more closely, agree can't argue with what you said. But still just doesn't make sense as to why. Either way, not all that worried about it as there certainly are 3 or 4 that can be extended or restructured.
  13. Wow kind of amazing that 6 D-line FA not re-sgned plus Star was cut for total of 7. I think they kind of rebuilt the line!! WRT cap and currently only count top 51, there's a large number of players below the top 51 cutoff that highly likely most will be on the final roster so the only way that happens is if an equal number of players above the cutoff line are gone. These are the players below the top 51 line who I think very likely will be on the team come September. Maybe not everyone I list, but most will be there: Doyle, Gilliam, Dodson, Jackson, Stevenson, Hamlin, Shakir, Araiza, Also a good chance last CB will come down to either C Lewis who right now is the last guy above the cutoff line of C Benford. Likely may also come down to choice between Dodson and B Spector who's salary is lower. Looking at the roster players likely to be gone would save around $4.2 mil and that doesn't include Ford or Matakevich Granted you do still need to add practice squad in which will cost something.
  14. OK so he either needs to come off of PUP before final cut down and placed on 53 or he can stay on PUP for 6 weeks, then they have 5 more weeks to decide whether to let him start practicing and then have up to 21 days to activate him. Considering his injury and how long recovery often takes, that doesn't sound like such a bad thing timing wise. So he could return anywhere between around 7 weeks up to 14 weeks from beginning of season. Assuming Ford sticks around they have 9 lineman likely to make the 53, Boettger would make 10 which they often don't need barring injury. He could be a fall back if someone gets hurt or if they decide Ford isn't the answer. Could be the new line coach feels he can salvage him. This would give him some time to see if it worked.
  15. Agree overall. Just curious, who are the other five we know of. At this point, the only ones I recall are Beasley, Star, and G Davis. Dawkins missed time for Covid, but believe he was actually vaxxed. Was another AJ Klein?? As far as Beasley goes in bringing him back, we have 2 slot guys plus the rookie Shakir who they've stated they want to have play all three positions. But if either Crowder or McKenzie got hurt, I'm sure Shakir would mostly play in the slot. IMO I'd rather have Sanders back or someone else who can play outside. There's another thread about "we should have signed B Edwards" But isn't he more a slot guy too? Bring in an outside vet!! Not sure who that is though that's available.
