Matt Milano defensive MVP

We have a Casper mattress. Love it. Nice part about it is if Matt was in the bed with me I wouldnt even feel him move around....hmmmmm. Perhaps I do have cause for concern. 

Good title change....MVP? I want to see how his leg bounces back first.

He can realistically never be the same again

 

But modern science is amazing so I wouldn't doubt it if he comes back stronger

 Right now he's a pretty average overall starting LB. I like him, but like many Bills players, he is often overrated by many fans.

as long as he is a piece to a winning puzzle , then all the Bills can be considered overrated

People are being too hard on the OP, let it slide guys. Be happy we have a spectacular young duo in Edmunds and Milano for the next decade. Happy thoughts guys.

But, I've read on this very board that the linebackers are suspect and only Edmunds *maybe* has a chance to be marginally mediocre someday. Meanwhile, the DL isn't even cut out to rush a JV QB. It's all true. Cause I read it here. 

 

Add more to ignore list.

Your #42 post certainly added to waste of time.

In truth, it's Devin Singletary who's being slept upon.  

This is a curious one. It's odd how low the expectations seem to be for a third round running back. I didn't personally like the pick, but time will tell. I will say that when you draft a RB in the 3rd round, he should be expected to contribute immediately and substantially.

 

You don't stash RB's away for future use. Statistically speaking, their best years will be early in their career.

 

Edit: greatly improved title.

Yes. Fred Jackson had a very typical career for a RB. Not a great example...at all.

Not one person here is sleeping on him... Where did you hear a single person say this?

i did get a solid nap in. no lie.

but at my age..

 

hope he returns healthy !

who is the 3rd LB though.is a 4-3 Joseph ?

 Edmund needs the year two  to do the tighten up .
Milano is fun as heck to watch come out of no where seemingly.

 could be beastly or we could struggle.

can i go back to my nap now?

TC will come soon enough

I can see it with Milano....but also I honestly could see it from Oliver.  I think Oliver could come in and make an immediate difference.

I think we all know Milano is a budding star, but 90% of fans of other teams have probably never heard of him. If he had his 2018 season for a big market team, he'd be on every "breakout player" list.

I wanna just break up some of the bashing, and say that I am STOKED to see Milano this year! He’s going to be an absolute beast. The way he reads a play and is able to run downhill to make a play, while avoiding blockers is something only 25% of NFL linebackers can do. Edmunds hasn’t been able to do this yet, but he’s still very good. Milano reminds me so much of Lavonte David from the Bucs. He’s a gem! Probably should be the face of our defense.

Matt Milano is one of several cases on the Bills where the present regime has a real good feel for matching players to systems.  Matt Milano on a team with a 3-4 defense would be at best a special teamer.  I think even some 4-3 defenses would find him something of a poor fit,  but Matt Milano in McDermott's 4-3?  Awesome!  Ed Oliver may be another one.  He probably has enough talent to be scheme flexible, but he has the potential to be a perennial pro bowler for McDermott. Tre White was regarded fairly highly coming out of college, but lots of observers thought he had limitations.  McDermott's zone defense on the back end facilitates greatness for him, even as he's had the chance to work on some of his limitations in man coverage.

I don't disagree with your assessment of Milano, but I've heard plenty. Not quite sure where "forgotten" comes from.

 

...agree bud...plenty of press about how he was missed doesn't mean "forgotten"....plenty of TBD posts asking for updates...thought that the kid was a bit smallish, but NEVER anticipated his veracity and contribution.....just another 5th round gem ala Meatball....so before I return to "under my rock", keep an eye on two more potential 5th round gems, Neal (2018) and Joseph (2019)...stay tuned....

Most NFL players fall into the role of scheme fit player

 

Only the truly elite elite players are plug and play players fit for every scheme

 

If you put 90% of NFL players in the perfect scheme they will be very good... Because they were scooped up for a reason and can play. That's why UDFAs sometimes become pro bowlers. They always had the talent, just not in the right fit

 

Milano would probably be a fit for any attacking 43 team as a WILL as he has the speed and instincts to run with TEs and backs but you are absolutely right he would be out of place in a 34 even as the WILL on the inside

 

Tre was the most polished corner in that draft to me as he played all techniques and coverages at a good level. Though he was supreme in zone especially cover 3

 

Where he can get lost a bit is in man vs a straight burner because he doenst have 4.3 speed or vs a big physical WR because he's 5'11

 

But you can gameplan for those things and he will learn. Just has to sit 7 yards off a guy with 4.3 speed and not press him
