Thad Brown: “Cody Ford Is Not A Starter For the Bills”

I see Ford starting at RT by the Bengals game.  I don't see him working in at G, I thought he was a solid OT prospect.  But I could be wrong.

 

But you see him starting then, right?

For this gem on YouTube.  Rochester’s own Thaddeus Brown spends about 2 minutes talking about Josh allen and then rips Cody Ford.  He says he doesn’t like the pick and that unless there’s an injury he can’t see Cody starting all season long.  He just doesn’t seem to be much of a fan.

 

I disagree with Thad here and have Ford pencilled in to start at one of the guard spots.

 

 

 

 

O no! 

 

Mr. Thaddeus Brown says Cody Ford isn’t a starter.

 

My goodness what are we going to do?

Wonder what he says about Trent Murphy then 

 

It says that he is healthy. He should be beating 2nd round rookies. He's beaten proven players in the NFL, rookie should be a cake walk.

This guy?  And we care about his football predictions why?

With a good OL, it's quite common for a rookie OLman to spend a year learning the NFL game and pursuing NFL level strength and conditioning.

We do have competition on the OL, but if Ford doesn't start this year, it doesn't mean he's a crap pick either.

 

I see it as a good sign that we aren’t so desperate that he’s a lock to start. 

 

He may not start week one, but I’d bet he will by the end of the year. Not liking the pick in the 2nd is.........unique.

Absolutely correct but speed rushers may also prove to be a weakness in Ford's game at this level of play. I have some concerns about that TBH. I think he has a future as a starter on an NFL line (though maybe not immediately). Right now with experience I see him developing into a quality guard. That would certainly justify the pick. Good guards are hard to come by.

I think Ford will eventually be a decent, maybe, very good player. But if he doesn't start, it is not necessarily a bad thing. As a matter of fact, right now his odds of starting are probably less than 50%. But that in no way implies he's a bust or poor pick.

 

If the FA pick-ups are doing their job, there will be no need to rush Ford.

 

If Nsehke plays to the level of his signing money, he should be the starter.  I hope he is, and I hope it gives Ford time to develop, or, maybe Ford ends up being the starting right guard?

I suspect Bills picked up Ty to play RT. By chance Ford fell to Bills.
let him develop behind some pros.

 btw i think he will find his way on the field at some point this season.

if only in packages.

 I think he was fine draft pick and cheered it

Ditto.  That's exactly how I see it.

Brown may have simply gotten what he wanted: attention.  Or he may be suggesting that a rookie with major upside doesn't necessarily have to start, especially if you have experienced depth.  In fact it may be beneficial to them not to start immediately.  Ask Steve Young.  We shall see what we shall see.

It's pretty unlikely that Ford doesn't end up starting any games he's healthy for.  

 

To start, our OL-men otherwise really aren't much better than average.  

 

Secondly, of the 6 OL-men drafted last season, four started all 16 games, one started 10, Price on Cincy, but I think he missed those 6 due to injury, and Isaiah Wynn, whom I would have drafted last year, was injured before the season began.  

 

I didn't like the pick only because Risner was still there, with experience playing C, but otherwise he seems like a solid OL-man.  

 

IMO Ford's going to have a better career than Oliver.  

 

We could have had Wynn, Hilliard, Risner, and Lock.  IMO that OL along with Dawkins and Morse (assuming he could stay healthy) would have benefitted Allen something fierce.  

 

 

 

Morse may be the best C in the NFL.

 

Ford>Oliver would be impressive because I think Oliver is going to look good in a gold jacket.

The whole draft was a waste other than first pick,  Ford has bust written all over him

Your whole post is a waste.

 

To call players busts when they haven’t even played a game as professionals is highly ignorant.

Thad cohosts Buffalo Kickoff Live which is on TV at 11:30 am on game days.  My bad.

I don't think that predicting Ford won't start week 1 is a stretch. I like the pick, but Nsekhe probably has a leg up in the competition just based on experience alone. We all want Ford to win the competition at RT and start, and I think most fans assume he will, but Brown was asked for a bold prediction and he gave one.

I agree, but going farther saying that he didn't like the pick at all just a little baffeling. It is hard to argue against the pick

Not sure that is a bold prediction? With the depth we have for the 1st time I can remember in 20 years I have zero problems with our rookie lineman learning the trade from some vets. 

 

Not liking the pick in the 2nd rd for a player that should have went in the 1st is the only thing bold or F'ing stupid here.

we he certainly got this board's attention.  mission accomplished from his standpoint.   Minutes of life you won't get back for board members.

Yeah, because anybody who dares to have any doubt about anything about the current Bills is "an idiot".  They are perfect.  Got it.
