  1. I think Gruden will just mail it in and steal Mark Davis’s money, kinda like Rex did with the Bills.

    Would you draft Oliver or Bosa?

    Oliver is a nice player but I would never use the number 1 overall pick on an interior d-lineman. Bosa would make more sense. BTW, maybe now we know why Beane was so adamant about holding on to our ‘19 first round pick.

    Would you draft Oliver or Bosa?

    Before the new rookie wage scale came into being, the top pick was sometimes a hot potato. It’s better now...and this looks like a pretty good draft.

    I agree, but it’s not possible every year. When there isn’t a big-time QB available, it can be hard to find a partner willing to trade a boatload of picks.

    A retirement avalanche in the NFL.

    Could be. He’s certainly got nothing left to prove and he’s had his share of injuries. Can’t believe he’s not even 30 yet.

    McDermott- Highest odds to be fired..

    There is literally no such thing as a “negative chance”. If you think there is zero chance McDermott gets fired, you haven’t been paying attention. While I agree it’s unlikely he gets fired this year, if he loses control and the team quits on him (and there are early signs of both) all bets are off. It’s not like McDermott has a long history of success in this league. Patience and continuity are great, but as soon as someone demonstrates that they don’t know what they’re doing, their days are numbered, and rightly so. Losing is toxic and should never be accepted or expected as part of some idiot’s four-year plan.
  7. Is it still only -16.5? Seems like easy $$$.

    How Safe Are Coach McDermott and GM Beane?

    Those saying there is “zero” chance McDermitt gets fired are kidding themselves. If this team gets blown out week after week, which seems possible, and it becomes apparent that he has lost the team, then he most certainly can get fired. Anyone who is unconcerned with what we are seeing needs to wake up.
  9. Nice drive by seattle. Got to mix in the running plays despite what that idiot Whitten says.
  10. Agreed. Neither was a complete bust, but given all the future Hall of Famers in those two drafts, especially at WR, it’s hard not to consider those to be wasted picks.
  11. I know. I was just wallowing in the misery.
  12. May I remind you that the Bills have drafted in the top four twice since 2012 (both times in historically great draft years) and came away with two turds?

    Is anyone THAT upset being 0-2?

    Thank you. Tear-down rebuilds are not how it’s done in the NFL. Teams rebuild on the fly and it is a league designed for parity. Anyone selling you that we need to tear it down and start over to be good is full of it. If this team goes 1-15 or 0-16 it will be because of incompetence, not as the residue of some grand plan or process.

    How Safe Are Coach McDermott and GM Beane?

    I don’t disagree, but no coach or GM should be kept around once it becomes clear that they don’t know what they’re doing. “Continuity” is important, but once a coach has lost the team, or the GM has exposed himself as a fool, there’s little sense keeping them around for the sake of continuity. We’re not there yet, but it’s not inconceivable that we could get there sooner than some think.
