Recommended Posts

And we are now officially there

Dead cap crap sandwich officially done and eaten (ewwww)

9th overall pick

10 picks (for now) in the draft

90 million in cap space

Future QB secured and games of experience under his belt

Jets on the verge of draining the swamp and starting over

Dolphins on the verge of at least partially draining the swamp, and most likely starting a QB search

Pats*** at least starting to look mortal

Some room for optimism, but this team needs a lot.  I also wish that Edmunds and Allen showed more to give us more than hope for the future.

"Today", they showed much. Here's to more days like today with even more to come.

Edmunds had 120 tackles, 2 ints, 2 sacks as a 20-year-old rookie and looks like he's poised to take over reins as defensive leader at 21 next year. Allen had 5 tds today and almost led the league in qb rushing despite missing nearly half of season. It's hard to expect much more.

 

On another note: they may have found two starters at key positions in the 2018 UDFA market which is pretty impressive.

 

And...don't look now, but Browns about to have ball and if they get 50 yards or so, we can claim #1 defense.

7 picks in rounds 4-7. 

 

Multiple other teams have plenty of cap room. And UFAs know it. 

 

Defense itaelf is nice, but less important than many fans realize. 

 

They need significant help at RB, WR, TE, and at least 3 OL positions.

I agree with the list John. 

 

I’m excited for the offseason. 

 

For the Bills it’s all in front of them. 

 

The FO should be able to chart whatever path they need to.

In the last two drafts, we got Milano and Taron Johnson in those rounds.

 

Yes, other teams have cap room, but we have more, hence can outbid -- more importantly, it gives freedom to re-sign our own guys.

At this point, 2 other teams have more cap space and two are within 15M of Buffalo.  Besides, this will change significantly by March when the new year begins.

BTW, which guys is this team going to re-sign?  It's too early according to the CBA for the '17 draft picks.  And who from '15 or '16 are the types to retain on big contracts? 

 

Meanwhile, the hit rate after round 4 is low, so if you're looking for top end starters there, the chances are very slim.  Johnson is injured all the time and Milano has finished his first two seasons on IR.

Oh ok, other teams have cap room.  Guess we should just give up.

I hope you're being sarcastic here because IMO they both showed us a lot to be optimistic about the future.

Johnson sustained a (I think) shoulder injury early in the season and tried to play through it all season, hoping to delay surgery until the offseason.  He almost made it.  To say he is injured all the time is misrepresenting what actually happened.

Most important off season in 2 decades.  A good off-season and we're definitely contenders. A great one and we could be one of the elites in the AFC .

 

Either way,the future is so bright. I can't stop talking about how much I love the vision and blueprint McBeane implemented

Huge off season  They spend wisely in FA and have a decent draft and this team should jump up to 10 wins.  Jets/Dolphins look like both will be once again rebuilding/reshuffling.  Brady/Gronk one year older.

Let's give up AND ignore economics.  That would be even better.

Johnson is physical, to be sure.  I remember another Buffalo cornerback who was considered undersized, yet was very physical.  Antoine Winfield had himself a very nice NFL career.  Yes, it's possible Johnson could have recurring injury issues.  Buffalo will want to kleep working on building depth at defensive back.  I hope Johnson continues to play with confidence and physicality though.

Why do people keep saying we have the 9th pick?  We have the 10th.

Gees...Let's put you in charge of morale!  I know you could look at things from that perspective...but talk about Debby Downer!

Brady one year older and Gronk GONE. I honestly dont see him coming back... not that he was much of a factor this year anyway.

Sorry Alpha....when I left and went to the gym it was reported the 9th pick

 

9 or 10....doesnt matter...that is OL or WR territory and the pick of the litter

Needs:

 -  Stop the Run 

 -  Run the Ball Better  (Ranking is masked by Josh's runs)

-   Weapons for Josh

-   Protect Josh 

-  Better Special Teams (Coach, PLayers)

 

The Bills Front office has its work cut out.
