    Sad thing is he’s likely still working for ESpin if he wasn’t a belligerent drunk 

     

    Shows the level of talent they employ over at ESPN. Between that and Rodak on the Fairburn/Buscaglia podcast saying how ESPN only really cared about the Bills when Rex was around I think it's pretty obvious that people are right about them only caring about the big markets and tmz journalism.


  2. The biggest concern is really just the Oline gelling and we won't even really know who is playing where for a while. WRs switch in an out and getting timing down with a QB can take a bit, but I think that's minimized with good communication and putting in the time. I'd expect the OL to get their act together sometime around week 5 as far as actually acting like a cohesive unit. Preseason is great, but as we've seen before, we don't always do the best job at picking the right starters.

    So two years ago when that Gronk slam happened to Tre White nobody went after Gronk. The team went 9-7 and broke the 17 year playoff drought. Last year, everyone went after Kiko after his cheap shot on Josh Allen, indicating their willingness to fight back after the whistle. The team went 6-10 and missed the playoffs.

     

    I think it's good when players are willing to stick up for each other, I just think it's impact to wins and losses is minimal. There are scores of more important things. In fact, you can play hard and passionate and tough between the whistles and make a bigger impact than reacting to something after the whistle when the play is dead.

     

    So the fact that we have had a wimpy team in the past is duly noted. I just don't think those teams would have won any more games had they gone after guys for cheap shots.

     

    Yeah, teams playing like teams don't generally translate to wins, you should talk to the Lakers about that one...

    You are correct I have a non-opinon. That is why it is called facts.

    You are completely missing the point. I agree Beane's decisions are reasonable decisions that other GMs make. You can argue their merit, but I've moved on from that.

    But you can not say Beane inherited the dead cap money. It's just not true no matter how hard you want to believe it.  

     

    Your point with that fact being what?

    Im saying he didn't inherit a cap mess. He caused it and threw away 2018 season.  

    Its just a fact. Was it right or wrong will be decided in next couple of years based on Allen's performance and the rebuilt oline

     

    You're basically saying nothing at all. You're just blaming Beane for not keeping players around that they didn't want in the building. "He caused it" means zero, you're just parroting what other posters on this board with actual points to make have said. Beane got rid of players that weren't team-first players with bloated contracts and ate the cap hit for it. You're acting like he's the first GM to ever do that. 

     

    Dareus since being traded - 2 sacks and 41 tackles in 1 2/3 seasons. Sammy hasn't broken 600 yds in a single season since leaving. What exactly is your point? That we took a knee on last year to reset the roster? How is this going to be proven "right or wrong?" Nonsensical ridiculousness like these posts are a waste of time. You have a non-opinion.

  6. I don't think it would be a bad thing to wind up with a Dawkins - Spain - Morse - Ford - Nsekhe line. I'd love Ford to start at RT right away, but I think there's a lot to be said for starting next to a solid player for a year. Ford - Nsekhe is a better right side combo than Long - Ford

  7. Super happy about this, this was a no-brainer extension at a modest cost. We now have the LDE locked down for 3 more seasons. Next season we can sign a RDE in FA to replace Lawson/Murphy (I don't expect Murphy to get to the last year of his contract with us). This takes a lot of pressure off of the 2020 offseason.

    ....have confidence in the youngsters.......they'll show up.....

     

    He's on a 1- year contract. We could probably get a couple years out of McCoy and not have to worry about him developing into a good player, he already is one.
