  1. Wilson, Rodgers and Roethlesberger have been the most sacked QBs in the NFL also at various points...Wilson was last year actually...they didn't regress like Wentz
  2. I agree with this...it was kind of unsustainable some of the things he did at the end of last year...more like "however I have to get it done" type of stuff...almost like Allen in his rookie year. I agree...but that doesn't mean he will be a good HC...huge skill set difference between what you need to be a good OC/DC and a head coach...much of it has nothing to do with football.
  3. I think Lawrence stays in school rather than be drafted by the Jets. Didn't Manning spurn them in this way as well years ago? Also, Beane has some relatively easy methods to generate enough cap space to do whatever he needs to do in the offseason. Some big cap space players have relatively little dead cap space(like Butler and Jefferson) attached to them. One of these players likely is expendable when Star returns. In addition, there are some relatively easy targets for either pay cuts, restructures or cap maneuvering extensions. This is a long way of saying Beane has plenty of flexibility to get whatever he wants done under the cap for next year. Special Teams, I think we are good, but according to DVOA, Miami has the best special teams in the NFL at 10.2 and NE is actually 4th at 5.0. Bills are at 8th at 3.5, which is still very good but not quite up to NE or Miami. Sanders the K for the Dolphins has only missed 1 FG and been perfect on XP. Grant is the leading punt returner in the NFL, thanks to an 88 yard return for a TD against the Cards I believe. Hauck has been solid if not spectacular as a punter for them. Jets are terrible at -4.8 which is 28th.
  4. What I was expecting even when they were not playing well early in the year...this D is too well coached and too talented to play that poorly all year. Had some new pieces they had to figure out how to best fit in there, and they have done a pretty good job as of late, especially with becoming a pressure defense. As reported by Aaron Schatz at Football Outsiders:
  5. That's right...isn't that the game he came back in the 2nd half and went off on them for like 4 TDs?
  6. A lot better than the Bills 2010 class where the highest Career AV is Arthur Moats taken in the 6th round with 21...most of that coming with Pittsburgh after leaving the Bills. His AV with the Bills was 9. What a terrible class that was...actually shocked to see that it was worse in terms of career AV than the amazingly bad 2000 draft class which was highlighted by Sammy Morris' 28, again, most of which after leaving Buffalo. However, came across this, listing the worst draft classes of all time using DrAV from 2017... Bills 2000 class ranks as 15th worst in NFL history(the only Bills draft class on the list) with a Total DrAV of 13...the 2010 class was good enough not to make the list. Actually...now that I look at it more closely, they are only taking the worst for each team and how they compare to each other.... https://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/19092546/stacking-worst-classes-nfl-draft-history
  7. Also, in their entire draft class Edmunds is 6th in Career AV and Allen is 10th...pretty impressive. And that is before Allen's year this year which might catapult him to #1.
  8. Very nice....and this won't even include the Diggs trade since he wasn't an FA but has added a huge amount of AV for this year... I think sometimes it helps to see things in perspective compared to other teams when we might be upset that player X from round Z hasn't produced more, but then you start looking around the NFL and realize that we have done really well overall...
  9. Tomlin has the 6th highest career winning percentage for coaches with more than 200 games at .658. His worst record as a head coach has been 8-8(3 times). He has won double digit games 9 times out of 14 seasons. Pretty sure while the FO might have helped, he is a damn good coach.
  10. But even last year people were talking about that there was something wrong with him and that he wasn't playing well...I think this is a case of the stats not lining up with how he was actually playing.
  11. Watching Wentz looking absolutely clueless this year and badly regressing makes me really wonder...how much was Reich responsible for his successes? It seems like he started downhill once Reich left and this year he has hit rock bottom...he may no longer be a starting caliber QB in this league. And that is what I worry about with Allen a little bit...Daboll has been instrumental to his success and maturation into a star for us...how much would Allen regress(if at all) if Daboll leaves for a HC coaching job this offseason. There are expected to be a lot of opening, more so than any other year in recent memory perhaps, and Daboll has been a hot name for a year or two now.
  12. Some games he definitely would be in the discussion, others not so much. Still working on consistency but his floor has moved up tremendously since his rookie year. Josh playing his worst game is still good enough to probably beat half the teams in the league of not more. Also...as an aside...has Josh ever thrown a pick 6? I don't recall seeing one...some QBs have a tendency for those type of INTs like Winston(and Matt Schaub going back a while) and others never seem to have them happen...
  13. Shouldn't this be posted on other fans message boards??
  14. Wouldn't Hodgins be that? 6'4" and some said he had the best hands in the entire draft.
  15. The crazy thing is, every one of them has worked! And not just worked, scored a TD. Very few teams scheme up trick plays that well...many times they are covered and we only get to see the highlights of the ones that actually worked. Some of these plays are pretty awesome...would like to see Daboll try the one at the 1:33 mark of the video... Best trick plays of all time(college and pro)
  16. Apparently even dudes playing with him at first didn't think he was very good... https://www.yahoo.com/sports/tyreek-hills-first-impression-of-patrick-mahomes-i-thought-he-was-trash-041028592.html
  17. This year might see the most head coaches getting fired that I can remember in recent memory...not good for our chances of keeping Daboll as OC, or for that matter maybe even Frazier as DC.
  18. If you see the title of the graph tho, it says "expected win probability LOST by kicking in go situations"
  19. No what it says is the Bills are best at making decisions to go for it when they should and kick when they should based on his statistical models. This is a good thing.
  20. It is a default ejection now by rule. They usually announce "This is the player's first penalty towards ejection from the game"
  21. I can't either...basically the GM tells him this is what we want to do and Overdoff would give them the implications for that and if they decided to do it they would give him the general terms and he would draft up the contract. I don't see how he got thrust into being some type of bad guy.
  22. I am shocked they didn't ask for concessions from players...in the long run they are the ones getting screwed in all of this...the stars will get paid its the guys on mid term contracts and vet minimum contracts that will end up bearing the brunt of it.
  23. Rule also is if you go on IR a second time after coming back you are done.
  24. I just can't see ot dropping that much...unless they get players to accept 90% of their salaries or something for next year to avoid a huge number of cap casualties and low contracts in FA. The players may be smarter to accept 90% of their salaries versus have a huge number of players get cut and then have no money to sign them.
