  1. I seem to remember the receptionist at OBD gave the phone to Jim Kelly just after we drafted him, and it was the USFL trying to sign him. Actually, I think your correct. Unless Coles is using the Bills for leverage and his agent is working the phones behind our backs, I would hope he is devoting his attention to us.
  2. I really, really hope the Bills had some plan letting Greer, Dockery, Fowler and Preston go. Not that Fowler and Preston were that great, but now we have exactly ZERO centers. I just can't believe they would hand walking papers to all of them without knowing they would land at least a center and guard in FA. Then again, I wouldn't put anything past this team.
  3. I assume you are kidding. But if you're not take a look at the Colts. How many "number one" FA's have they got in the past?? How many FA's have the Skins gotten? How many championships do both teams have in the last 10 years, and which team has the best overall record since then? Getting a killer FA is not the answer, just a quick fix. The Bills needs to draft better and keep those players past their first contract, instead of developing them and letting them go.
  4. 2 years 9 million dollars??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? Way to parlay a few good games into megabucks.
  5. About time. Wonder if it a show for the FA's to take us seriously.
  6. Yeah they talked football...backup QB. The two fought over Warner and Garcia for a few minutes squashed between Paul Hamilton and Robitaille.

  8. Fine by me the skins signed him. Just shows how overrated he is. Same with Haynesworth, people suspect he had a great season last year because he was in a contract year. Status quo for the skins signing names others talk about to try and make a splash.
  9. Would like to see Coles in a Bills uniform. Nice for a name player, only thing is, is he using us as leverage with some other team? Hope that's not the only reason he is in for a visit.
  10. BTW, NFL Live on ESPN at midnight. Also scoping out www.profootballtalk.com/rumormill.htm Let's at least make a splash with ONE top tier FA.
  11. Used to really like him. Guy had really fallen off the last few years, has not worked hard and has been a bit of a "me" player. No way do I want him.
  12. Might have been easier saying who we DON'T need.... TE, OL, DE, corner depth. DT not a real concern if we get a pass rushing DE who can take pressure off the middle. OLB depth and starting C.
  13. Saying he is the best player on this team means little with the "overwhelming" talent we have. As for how good he is, I would like to see another season of him before I make a judgment. Now about his "thugary". I've about had it with these out of control athletes doing whatever the heck they want. A-rod injecting himself, Ray Lewis "watching" a murder, Pacman Jones, and the list goes on. I don't care if he is only 22. He has the NFL watching his every step after running over that pedestrian. You can't tell me he's not smart enough to not sit in a car with bad plates, smoking blunts with a loaded non-registered gun in the trunk?? Don't care if he grew up without a father, the dude should know better. Good thing he has the money to pay good lawyers, anyone else would see some jail time doing what he did (that goes for his driving skills also). Honestly, if the Bills cut him I could care less. I know they won't because they invested a first round pick in him and that means everything to the team.
  14. The local installers are hit and miss, that's my only beef with DTV. Otherwise, I had an issue with my original HD receiver and I was issued and upgraded receiver and upgraded dish with not cost to me. I also called them three weeks ago and asked about a HD DVR and was told it was 200 bucks. I mentioned I thought that was a little high and they, without any prompting, hooked me up with a DVR for free. They also ran a new cable and added another small box allowing for two connections to the DVR. My only issue with DTV is weather. Otherwise customer service has been above excellent whenever I call them. Anyway, were I live I can't get FIOS anyway. They have talked about a 2 to 3 year wait.
  15. I live 2 miles as the crow flies from the crash site. By the grace of God I didn't know anyone who was on the flight. Due to my proximity to the crash, I feel a huge loss, more than any other event except maybe 9/11. God bless those who perished and my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of those who perished. I am not a deeply religious person, but offer this that I found: Lord Jesus, you are the master of life and death. You said, “I am the resurrection and the life,” and this morning we believe this with all our hearts. And, Lord, you know far more than we do what death is all about. So we come to you in our pain and in our sadness. Draw near, O Lord, for we desperately need your help.
  16. Man, finally. All that hard work of Might Taco, Duff's Wings and Genny Cream will finally pay off! Urrp!
  17. If he does not make it in the next few years, he's going to be one of those ones that take awhile. My fear for him is he's up against Rice next year who is a no-brainer. I don't think the HOF committee would put in two WR's in a year. Don't really know if he deserves the HOF that quick anyway. There a many HOF worthy WR's who have not made it.
  18. Congrats to both! Bruce, obviously had a tremendous career. Ralph, think he has done more for the NFL then anyone knows. Helped bring the AFL and NFL together, bailed out Davis and the Raiders financially, and was the one voice of reason with the new CBA and everyone thought he was nuts. Just wonder how much positive behind the scenes stuff he has had a hand in. Andre, hope he gets in some day. I fear that unless he gets in within the next few years, he may be one of the all time greats that sits on the fringe. My worry about next years is Jerry Rice is up for induction, and will be a shoe in, don't know if they would put two WR's in the same year. Great day for Bills fans!
  19. For what it's worth, regarding Packs declining sack totals and lack of run defense. http://bleacherreport.com/articles/108806-...pointing-season
  20. Actually, Donte just dropped a bit in my book. Hope that was in the offseason. If he put that much effort into his game, he'd be an absolute all-pro. Thing I think is funny about that video. Looks like he had a great time with his "friends", ya know the ones that are there for the party, not for Donte.
