The D should be above the O for the entire summer.  They are an established unit.

JA and the offense will struggle and I hope McDermott comes up with a plan to allow them to build some confidence.

It's almost a completely different offense compared to this time last year.

 

People need to watch and wait until at least the preseason to see what the O can do.

 

This reasoned and patient perspective takes away the fun over reactions that make message boards so much fun this time of year.  Please refrain from this destructive behavior.  :P

Yup.  Remember the reports out of KC last summer that Mahomes was throwing six picks in practice?

I mean if you're going to push your limits on what you can and can't do it's best to do it in practice than in a game.

Thanks for the advice.  I'll try to remember to light my hair on fire before any future posts!

Thanks for that reminder.

 

 

I've noticed that a lot of fans have high expectations this year (much more than typical) and it seems to have brought out the

same fervor from others not so inclined.  I'm sure there is a Psych 101 paper in here somewhere.  LOL

 

Daboll, Josh and the O have about 3 month to put together and execute a game plan/play to beat the Jets in NJ.

I'm thinking that they have enough time and determination to do that.  Then rinse and repeat with the Giants.

Can't wait to see how those first 2 games turn out.

 

Go Bills!

I like this. 

There's definitely a balance between treating them like grown men, and treating them like kids, but mental mistakes are dumb and deserve a little bit of a "10 year olds can remember a snap count/watch the ball" punishment. 

Back in the day when I used to coach youth/AAU basketball I'd make the whole team drop and do pushups if someone missed an easy layup - and sometimes for other assorted offenses that were simply lack of focus/attention.  Would be interested in how hard the run is - if it's just a jog I don't think it has the same impact as a sprint that causes enough discomfort to really commit the cause to memory.

he's going to have to show much more than he did in 2018, and for the record, the one thing he did well in 2018 was blitz from the slot.

He sacked Aaron Rogers. That’s all I remember. He was filling in for Hyde

I told you guys the coaching staff “loves” Love.

 

Right now he is the 4th DE unless he is awful in TC.

So who is now rooting for the combination of Love Johnson as DEs on the team?

I think there's more to the story of contributing late round picks than just picking the right players in the draft.  There are several components that I see supporting to better player development on the Bills roster...

  1. Establishing a culture where every player is driven to improve.  It's not about where you start but where you finish, so late round picks and UDFA's can earn playing time by showing up every day and competing hard.
  2. Capable coaches providing tangible development plans, giving road maps for players to become better versions of themselves.
  3. Competition at every position, leading to a "no plays off" mentality.
  4. Drafting players based on character in addition to physical talents.  This doesn't mean we are drafting choir boys - it means we are drafting team-first, competitive-by-nature football players.  One of the characteristics that shows up in these players is the drive to get better.  

I think our future Bills teams will have more depth because of the developing players on the roster.  Not every late-round pick can become an NFL starter, but it feels like we are trending in the right direction.
