    Redskins may want to trade up for QB

    There are six teams in front of the Bills that probably won't be drafting QBs (AZ, NYJ, SF, Raiders, TB, and Detroit), so I wouldn't get too excited here.
  2. He didn't beat them; the defense did. Watson was actually terrible in that game. I watched it. Well, his NFL.com draft profile says he was the starter, and he played all the time. Christ, he led the team in pass breakups. https://www.nfl.com/prospects/levi-wallace?id=32462018-0002-5599-37dc-f8dc32c7ecf3

    The tough times of Nickell Robey-Coleman

    Always liked him. A question: was the PI called against him in London (v Jax) the worst and most game-deciding call against the Bills since the late 1990s (Just give it to him plus Home Run forward lateral)?
  4. I think Alpha is right and that a bad NFL team would utterly slaughter Bama or Clemson. What do so many top prospects in the league say in the midst of training camp? "Man, everyone here is good." Both Clemson and Alabama have weak spots on both sides of the ball that an NFL coaching staff -- which is far more prepared than any college staff going into a game -- will ruthlessly and repeatedly expose. Wallace was a starter all season in his senior year. He got better every year--which is kinda Alpha's point! He's a FAR better player now than he was at Bama. The coaching in the NFL is also far, far, far, far more rigorous than in college.
  5. Depends on the sport and whether kids can play. A good friend of my son's (who is an elite baseball player) had offers from Duke, Vandy, and Stanford, but because the latter two had made offers to a ridiculous number of pitchers (not good for him), he chose Duke. In football, I'm sure Duke and Northwestern tell good players that their chances of playing are going to be higher at those places than Stanford. As for academic quality, they're all roughly the same.

    About Tom Brady and the Patriots

    Miles Jack disagrees with your assessment of last season. And I thought the reffing was perfectly fine in the SD game once you factor in that Gronkowski was held on nearly every passing play.
  7. You think all those standford players are academic all stars? I am talking about admission requirements and which schools compete against which for talent. Stanford competes against Duke and Northwestern among big time D1 schools.
  8. It's really not much different from Duke and Northwestern.

    Bills hire Bobby Johnson as offensive line coach

    Another bearded bald guy!
  10. I imagine many here will hate this, but it's hardly autotune pop. I think he's a weird choice for the SB (given that he's best known for acid rap), but then again Prince released some pretty crazy stuff over the years. It's not really my thing, but I have to confess that I think it's pretty good for the genre.

    Gerald McCoy: Cap casualty

    According to PFR, his best season was 2013 under Bill Sheridan (Schiano was coach). It was the only time he made all-pro and he had his highest AV that season. https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/M/McCoGe99.htm I am in no way blaming McCoy for the entire Tampa D performance, but it is the case that his been really terrible during his career there: https://www.pro-football-reference.com/teams/tam/.
  12. My son actually attended this now infamous show at Terminal 5 in NYC. He said it was completely insane. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/10/30/arts/music/travis-scott-sued-concert-injury.html. I have to think that the NFL is aware of the rep of his concerts, but after all they had the Who perform a halftime show ...

    Eagles officially choose Wentz over Foles

    ? - He was banged up this year and struggled (although his stats were good), but last year Wentz would have been MVP if not for the injury. It's way too early to be passing these judgments.

    Blakeman ref for KC *NE game...and *pats fans upset

    that's a good point. There was blown call in that game (The Lewis fumble that was blown dead and which should have been a Miles Jack TD). Not sure it was him, though.

    Blakeman ref for KC *NE game...and *pats fans upset

    The Carolina game from 2013 - which Blakeman completely blew at the end by picking up a flag on a BLATANT end zone PI vs. Gronk - is driving this as well. I know we don't like the Pats here, but ... um ... https://www.businessinsider.com/ref-explains-patriots-panthers-call-2013-11 .
