      Problems logging in?   11/05/2017

      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name. So, to log in:   Username: <display name> Password: <your password>   If you need to contact me to find out what your display name is use: Contact Us  and we can get things sorted out.

Anyone else think this guys needs to sit down?  I mean I love the guy but the middle of the field for both passing short and running the ball has been a joke for us the last 2 weeks and all I see is him 1 step late on every play.

12.5 sacks mostly rushing the passer in 2016 Bills near the bottom of the league in sacks this year and have one legit pass rusher in 55 (at most)

 

McDermott: hey you know what would be cool? Lets put Alexander in coverage 80% of the time

Everyone: Why?

McDermott : something, something, something process

 

The end

He is fine setting an edge but cant cover or run sideline to sideline.  LB is a massive need.  Brown is ok he is who he is.  Really do not understand why Milano has not replaced Humber or alexander at this pint.

he's 34 , very few linebackers are playing effectively, if at all , at that age. He's had 1 year in his career where he was a pass rush threat. To think he would be as effective this year was wishful thinking and poor judgement.

The bigger one for me is why Milano is not starting over Humber. Humber hasn't done a thing since he returned from injury. Definite decrease in production from Milano to Humber

I heard a Bills player (maybe Wood) this week mention that were going to see who the true leaders are on this team wit there performance on the filed, I wonder if it was reference to Lorax.

 

Milano did play more snaps yesterday, he looked lost as well.

Yes, in hindsight he simply got lucky with all the sacks last year but wasn't really any good either against the run.

 

The reality is this entire front seven is trash and it's sad watching KW out there too because he's beyond finished.

The entire LB Corp was picked on yesterday. Humber seemed to also have a particularly tough day. 

All 3 starting Lbs are awful. We need so many players I don't know where to start. It is like we're an expansion team.

He should be on the field with his hand on the ground on 2nd and 3rd and long, and a LB on goal line D, and on the bench for the rest (other than special teams).

I do too.  But, who else do you play.  He is a pass rusher in a 3-4.  A lifetime STer.  We need sooo many new starters.  This is not a one year fix.  This is not a two year fix.

 

Milano MAY be the only LBer that does not need replaced. Which is similar to the quality starters we have at most positions.

 

Sad face on another sad Monday.

Agree with all of the above.  Milano>humber although that's not saying much.  Maybe we put Brown with humber and milano just to see if it helps us from getting killed.  :)

12.5 sacks in the NFL luck?  Not sure I should be trusting your judgment too much now for a few diff reasons

not luck, more of an anomaly. 12.5 last season and 23.5 for an 11 year career total.

The Bills LBs are bad, among the worst starting LB corps in the league. LA s great season last year is the outlier in his career and he was pretty much a pass rusher. He can't play the game they are asking him to right now, and it was suspect thinking to believe he could.

Ive been saying this all year, even Preston Brown is bad, he wont be re-signed, humber should be gone, maybe we ask LA to take a cut to play ST, or we can keep him as a pass rushing specialist, regardless thats 3 starting LBs that need to be replaced, maybe Milano can fill one but we need a lb in the worst way

It is time we move on from Alexander.  He had a great year last year in his role but he is a role player not a starter.  We need to see what our younger guys can do as we build for the future.  I am excited about our current draft picks and hopefully we can take advantage of our picks next year.  I believe in the process and if we have patience in am confident our coach and GM will deliver.  We have one of the best scouting departments in the league.
