  1. If I'm spending money in FA I'm picking up a DE, OG, or a WR with speed and I'd only give the DE a contract anywhere near 14M+. I use that boatloads of cap space to re-sign the guys on the team who are actually producing like White, Hyde and Power and so I don't have to act like a feeder team for teams with responsible cap management. The key to long-term success is drafting well and retaining your own players, not playing fantasy football like the Redskins. Once you have the cap under control you can throw some cash at vets on a 1-2 year contract, drop them and bring in the next guy that's still producing after the first vet's production declines. If we are lucky and we actually hit on Allen we'll be handing him a 20M contract in 4 years anyway.
  2. The Athletic actually looks to be building something that is relevant and may actually be worth paying for.

    Underrated aspect of McBeane Tenure: Managing the Cap

    Open mouth, insert foot

    Shaq Lawson on roster bubble

    Beane said in an interview that they were "probably being too conservative" with Murphy, but they preferred to let him go through minicamp without contact because they knew they had over a month off after that and they preferred to just let him fully recover and rehab rather thank risking a setback.

    Thoughts about the Bills Official Website

    The only thing I use the website for is the videos section. I don't read the self-congratulatory articles or explore any other of the dark recesses of that place.

    Beane interview w/ Fairburn (QB, Shaq, etc.)

    The Athletic is already a better site than BN
  10. Rodak isn't a real journalist, he's a paid troll. The fanbase deserves much better than Rodak.

    Bills Backers of Guatemala

    Sure, I'll pick you up at the airport and you can stay with me. I'm in Guatemala City, you here too GG?
  12. Times change. Remember when 411 was a thing and you had to pay per search for information you can get for free in about a second now? That's what these sports columnists at TBN are. They don't provide inside information, they just posted click-bait drivel to try and drive traffic to the site in order to justify getting paid for being professional trolls. Newspapers are/were important because they provided information to an uninformed public. Some time in the 90s when personality-driven content became the trendy thing a bunch of sports columnists stopped including insider info in their writing and decided to just make "hot takes" in order to grow their personal brands. People are no longer willing to pay for that crap. TBN sports desk doomed itself when it ostracized itself from the teams it covered and started getting scooped by the national media. I don't need a TBN sub to get Bills news, I just need a twitter feed. Why would I pay money to read poorly written troll pieces by Bucky and Sullivan? The only way for local journalists to maintain relevancy is to provide the local audience with information that national reporters don't have access to. TBN has failed in that and has only themselves to blame for it.
