Without meaning to I think you with the bolded have summed up the receiver situation...... Brown 😀 Beasley 😀Foster 😀....... oh, and there's also Zay...... 😟

 

Zay is an unknown but still young.  This is his make or break year.

It is. He has to catch more of the balls thrown his way. It is as simple as that.

Brown is absolutely going to be a starter. His contract and skill set for Allen will dictate this. The only way he doesn’t start is an injury, which def can happen. 

What is Foster and Jones are better?  Brown has not been a star or performed at the level Foster did the 2nd half of last season.

If both Foster and Jones are better than Brown, that's a good problem to have.

FIFY ☺️

 

I admit to being a bit sceptical of Foster last year (not when we signed him but during the pre-season games when he looked totally lost). I always thought Levi Wallace was a good pickup - but I expected him to be a serviceable starter or a solid depth guy. How well he played at the end of last year surprised even me and I liked the signing. If he can repeat that form in 2019 and we found a guy who is a legitimate good starting outside corner as an UDFA then you have to say that is exceptional personnel work. I wonder how much input Daboll had in that? Clearly he played a role in Foster but having coached against Wallace in practice I wonder if he at least put a word in McDermott and Beane's direction for the kid. 

I am sure that he had a role in his signing. Calvin Ridley raved about Wallace. The team knew that he could play.

More wisdom 

 

 

 

Lamar Jackson is his highest rated QB from the Class of '18?   Rated higher than Deshaun Watson?

 

Allen is rated lower than guys who never played a snap in the NFL?

Fahey is Schopp's zen master, that's all you need to know about that guy.

Guys the moral of the story is, if you have ever wanted to try football journalism, you can probably do it. 

There are plenty of talented writers on this forum.

Cian Fahey should be traded for whatever his employer can get.

His employer has no use for a flaming bag of dog poop.

I was confused at first why Trubisky is labelled a 'high-variance starter' and Watson a 'high-end youngster' when they were drafted in the same class and Watson's been a starter for longer...but then I read 'Fahey' and now my only question is why Tyrod Taylor isn't ranked higher.

You don't know that. His employer may appreciate the irony in trading figurative for literal.

Football Writer Cian Fahey Says He Left ESPN After Being "Ignorant" At A Bar

Football writer Cian Fahey said today that he resigned from ESPN after he “drank too much at a bar and treated American strangers like I would my Irish friends.” The Dan Le Batard Show executive producer Michael Ryan Ruiz mentioned Fahey leaving the Worldwide Leader during today’s broadcast, and Fahey elaborated on Twitter.

I wanted to post the “Cocaine is a hell of a drug” meme but I didn’t for two reasons:

 

1- I’m on my phone and it’s too much work.

 

2- more importantly, cocaine produces more thoughtful analysis than this steaming *****.

Of course, if Foster and Jones are both WORSE than Brown, that's a bad problem to have.   Seriously bad, because it means the Bills have exactly one wide out.  

 

The problem the Bills have at receiver is mediocrity.   They need players to emerge as real go-to guys.  People expected that of Brown, but it hasn't happened after a stellar rookie year.  Some people expected that of Jones, but he did very little in his second season, when he should have been breaking out.   (Yes, he had a nice play here and there, but EVERY guy good enough to be on an NFL roster will make a nice play here and there.  Look at McKenzie.)   Foster hasn't done it yet.   Williams is unknown.  Sills is a rookie.  

 

The Bills need guys to step up.   My prediction is that the Bills will end the season, if not start the season, with their top four receivers being Beasley, Brown, Foster and Williams.   Why?  Beasley is an excellent short- to mid-range guy, and the Bills are telling Allen to throw more of those passes.  He is the anchor for the receiving corps.  Brown, Foster and Williams are the three most talented receivers after Beasley.  Brown and Foster have the speed that allows them to get open short or long.   Williams was a four- or five-star recruit who needed time to get his head together, and his experience in Canada suggests he's done it.   Jones doesn't have the speed that Foster and Brown have and doesn't have the all-round talent, including hands and physicality, that Williams has.  

 

But as I said, the problem the Bills have is that they all could remain mediocre.  If that happens, improved oline or not, Allen will be running for his life again this season.

Ahead of Brady and Brees. Ludicrous.

 

Maybe the Pats or Saints should propose a straight up trade for Mariotta? It seems like they would be getting the better of the deal.
