Wyatt Teller?

What's the word on Wyatt Teller? I've heard nothing but radio silence on him since the beginning of the season. 

 

There was enough buzz after the draft to give hope that he could get up to speed quickly and contribute. But the fact that he's still exiled to the practice squad worries me. 

 

He hasn't been good enough to be active on game days, but he's on the 53 not the PS. There's nothing to hear.

After watching him at TC, I was positive that he would get some PT eventually this season.  You are correct, he is an absolute monster in the running game.  Must need some polish, as most late round o-linemen typically need.

Potty training?  Did he crap himself or something.  I thought that was just mud.

I kind of am shocked they didn't try and have Teller be active on game day by now. Maybe he isn't ready to start but I thought if there were garbage time snaps to be had they would want him active on game day to kick the tires and see what he has if the situation called for it. I hope the Bills by the end of the season toss him out there the last 3-4 games of the season. We know what Vlad and Miller are by now, it would be good to see the younger players get a shot to showcase themselves a little and get some experience.

Coaches don't decide on game day rosters with garbage time in mind.

I understand that, but its not like the other backup OL players are that great, if there is an injury or garbage time I would like to see what Teller has. Then again this is just as a fan commenting on a message board. I have to trust that the coaches who see him every day probably know he isn't ready for prime time. It is just odd since Teller at least looked like a player capable of being active on game day during pre-season and from training camp reports. 

 

I at least hope they play him and the other young guard on the roster towards the end of the season assuming the last 2-4 games are completely meaningless.

There are others ahead of him such as Groy and Sirles.  Maybe near the end of the season as you suggested.

Teller likely needs work in pass protection at this point. But I like his potential and I still think they should give him a chance to play. Guys like Groy, Ducasse and Miller I think have a good chance of not being on this team next year. Go ahead and give Teller a chance to play. 

 

On another note, go trade for Forrest Lamp. He is healthy and ready to go and the Chargers just won't play him. Not sure why they are keeping him on the bench, but I do think there is a possibility of trade there. 

 

...I'd bet Castillo is saving him for the "playoff stretch run"  versus upsetting the current "apple cart success"...make sense to me.....

Backup rookie offensive linemen, don't generally create a lot of buzz, unless it's for the wrong reasons.  He could be improving in his technique, or not.  We probably won't hear anything this season unless McDermott shakes things up and names him as a starter.  I'm not expecting that.  We'll learn a lot more in the next training camp.

None of the Bills' rookie draft picks have stood out except for Edmunds.   Johnson's been OK but hardly great.  Phillips has been OK but nothing to write home about.  They both strike me as the type of players that will both play out their contracts and contribute in some way but that no major effort will be made to retain them.  We'll see I suppose.  That's about it.  The rests are either enormous question-marks (Allen) or role-players (Neal, McCloud, Teller), or no longer on the team.  (Proehl)  

 

McBeane needed to do a whole helluva lot better in this draft, immediately, in order to save their jobs IMO.

If Allen pans out this draft is amazing, there are some solid contributors on defense but we need more elite talent. We need that young WR/TE that demands extra coverage attention. We need that young DE/DT that demands double teams. Tre White is really all we have.

Dude aint on the practice squad

 

You're right, my mistake. I meant to say he continues to be inactive every week. 

 

Teaches me to type before I'm caffeinated up in the morning.

Very well said.  This is exactly what im hoping for.  With some wheeling and dealing with the extra draft picks i hope it gets done.

Let's suppose that that's true, that he's actually great.  You leapfrogged the point entirely.  

 

Typical here.  Everyone wants to be right, so very few people look at the big picture.  Unfortunately that's EXACTLY the problem with our FO.

He was on the field for more plays in preseason than any other lineman.In addition,our second offensive unit was the most productiive on paper and on the scoreboard....he did allow one sack.

The way the college game is played these days has impacted the development of OL and QBs the most. 

WR's as well.  Getting spoon fed plays and every offense designed to play in space it must shock a player's system when they get to the pros and have to analyze a defense before the play or as the play gets under way having to make decisions based on the movements of the defense.

Right you are. It's just such a different style they play in college, offensively anyway. And it affects numerous teams. I watched a bunch of different games yesterday and there were OL breakdowns all over the place, especially if the OL had more younger players than veterans. Teams like the Rams, Pats, Packers, etc. all have OLs comprised of mainly veteran players which is why they're usually successful. Most teams have a mix of vets and younger guys and it just takes time to gel and become a unit that's all on the same page.

He looks good in preseason, he doesn't ever see the field.  Peterman looks good in preseason, we cut a veteran and go with him instead.   

 

McDermott has his favorites and his not so favorites.    I'm thinking because Vlad is one of Castillo's favorites, Teller won't have a chance to play this year.

Not sure about McDermott and Boettger.

It's so nice to see a sentence like this end in Boettger instead of Beane.  There's too much criticism of the coach instead of the proper doubt about the other McDermott. 

From now on every time I'm about to get mad that someone is being overly critical of our coach, I'm going to pretend they're talking about the O-lineman & calm myself down.

If he comes in and plays well that’s one spot we don’t need to draft. Hoping he mauls some dudes
