  1. So, its a free range mountain? Like the chickens?
  2. Isn't that how the general posting sentiment on TSW goes as well?...
  3. Bupkis. Anybody that gets tossed off a plane is going to be "mortified." How about saying "get off my lawn" while you're at it... mor·ti·fy /ˈmôrdəˌfī/ verb past tense: mortified; past participle: mortified 1. cause (someone) to feel embarrassed, ashamed, or humiliated. "she was mortified to see her wrinkles in the mirror" synonyms: embarrass, humiliate, chagrin, shame, discomfit, abash, horrify, appall, crush "I'd be mortified if my friends found out I was learning ballroom dancing" 2. subdue (the body or its needs and desires) by self-denial or discipline. "return to heaven by mortifying the flesh" synonyms: subdue, suppress, subjugate, control, restrain, get under control; More
  4. Not seeing anything in their "terms of service" about proper attire: https://www.thomascookairlines.com/en/fileadmin/dam/user_upload/tcauk-en/11_pdf/Thomascookairlines_com_Terms__Conditions__live_from_10_December_15___v9_.pdf
  5. I like the FA approach so far for the reasons mentioned in the OP. It will be interesting to see if targeting "strong complimentary" type players coming off their first contract rather than marquee/high price "I've heard of him!" guys will be a winning approach. The Pats have perfected this model but Brady the GOAT makes its replicability to other franchises a tough thing to judge. At some point, "stars" make the difference between SB winners and first round playoff losers. Right now, that's not something to worry about as a first round playoff loss would be a big achievement in and of itself for the Bills...
  6. Agree with everything you said, especially this. Repeating the same old "tastes great, less filling" ping pong is boring. This roster needs at least 4-5 new pieces to be in the playoff hunt next year. Until we get a look at what Botts has in mind, we'll just keep spinning our wheels talking about it...

    Report - Bills talking to Hou for Clowney

    Well, if Clowney came here he wouldn't have to face Nsekhe any more:

    Talent vs Multiple low level players?

    Fired up the Madden console and signed only players he's heard of, silly... P.S. quit feeding the trolls.

    OT Ty Nsekhe (Redskins) to the Bills

    I'd love me some Hockenson but I suspect they have to go defense (probably D-line) with that first pick, given all the resources they've spent on the O...

    OT Ty Nsekhe (Redskins) to the Bills

    They only like players they've heard of. Which is the same old "high price spread" the Bills served up before Beane...

    OT Ty Nsekhe (Redskins) to the Bills

    He'll likely get most of the $7.7 million in guaranteed money this year, meaning no dead cap if they cut him in 2020. If he works out, he'll then be on essentially a 1-year $7 million contract in 2020, with no dead cap in 2021.

    WR Cole Beasley (Dallas) to the Bills

    Nah. He's a solid, 3-dimensional id***...
  13. Seems fair (and balanced)....

    TE Tyler Kroft (Bengals) to the Bills

    He's had one injury--a broken bone. Played in 44 of 46 games before that...

    TE Tyler Kroft (Bengals) to the Bills

    Nope. But the "ignore user" feature is a Godsend...
  16. You don't know much abot the AHL then...
  17. IMO, this team needs to address the O-line and D-line deficiencies before any talk of paying the price needed to land a WR like Jones. That kind of trade would be a repeat of the Sammy Watkins at four fiasco, absent the core line problems being fixed...
  18. So? That's like putting a 426 hemi in a VW bug. Great for smoking the tires but not very effective, given the underlying chassis...
  19. Trading top 10 picks for high price big names over 30 years old (who aren't QBs) is fools gold, IMO...
