There also hasn’t been anything negative for the doomsdayers to seize upon, either. They’ll be back as soon as a negative report gets posted. Like flies to a turd pile.

 

Listening to Jerry Sullivan show from Friday, whining about how well camp is going, no controversies, no selfishness, whaaa. Jerry's gotta Jerry. I guess when your whole game is harping on the negative, this team is a famine right now.

I think him complaining about not being able to complain is about as good as it's going to get.

There was a scuffle today. They now have something to focus on.

Sounds like that would be a bad thing this time of year. Knox needs to be out there.

Not if it is just a mild strain - then it is some ice and mild rehab to recover. That, and Knox has been getting all the work with Kroft out, so if you work in the kid from Boston you start to build your depth in the off season. TE's get dinged - a lot. They have the size and speed that puts a lot of strain on the joints, they get tangled up blocking, and when receiving defensive players (smart ones) always take them low.

 

The Bills need to work building the depth.

He also had 4 90+ yard games out of his last 7 in the NFL, as a rookie. His deep ability, coupled with Brown's, isn't something you want to keep off the field very long.

 

They draw away safeties, opening up underneath stuff and down the seams. If a DB bites even slightly on PA, one of those 2 are ready to pounce.

 

He was easily the most pleasant surprise on O last year and brings a skill that can't be taught. 

 

Use him.

 

I didn't say not to.  Just saying that IMO people thinking that Foster is the full time #2 WR may be disappointed. 

I see a good rotation between the top 4 WRs.

So lame....NFL Network is covering training camps where the players aren’t even in pads yet, while not even showing Bills camp...just watched a Vikings WALK THROUGH with just jerseys/ not even helmets.

No, they need to work building a quality starter. TE is one of their weakest positions. They don't have an established starter, so Knox needs to be out there as much as possible.

 

I would agree with you if we had Gronk or Kelce or some other established vet who we know will produce regardless of practice time. But we don't.

So next year when the Bills are a hot item and ESPN wants to spend much more time at Bills camp wil you join me in telling them to get the ***** OUT we don't like your kind around here.

personally I love being ignored by ESPN for that reason. When the Bill's are relevant in their eyes I don't want their coverage I want Bills fans in their faces telling them how much they suck, have sucked and will continue to suck, at least for next 17 years or so.

As an advocate of the Bills investing more into the TE position for years, I get what you are saying. Just taking the glass half-full position of being able to get more starting reps for that Boston kid who I don't think is all that bad of a player. That, and Daboll likes to feature a lot of 2-TE sets so this can build into having two young TE's becoming long term starters for us down the road.

 

Will hit the pause on the panic button till we learn more about why Knox came up gimpy and how long they feel he has to rest it - may only be a week or so kind of deal so we will see what OBD comes out with in their next presser.

I'd rather it be an ankle vs a hammy though. Hamstring is so easy to reinjure. You can feel completely fine and not even realize that your hamstring still needs more time to heal, then reinjure it. It's also usually injured from fatigue, so you can go full tilt for half of practice and think you are good to go, but then reinjure it. Just a really tough injury to know how to deal with for the player, so he has to be sure to listen to the medical staff.

I'm LOVIN that the defense is going against legit wideouts and offensive line this year in practices. For all their talent last year I wondered if they lost a bit of edge because their in-house competition wasn't up to par...now every day is a battle. Everybody has to stay sharp

Training camp is one of those strange things. On one hand if your defense plays great, you worry about your offense, but if the offense plays great you worry about the defense. I think what we shoukd start to see is good and bad days for both sides

Totally this. I hate the hamstring and groin injuries. They are so damn hard to fully shake without just full rest. Two TEs with hamstrings and one already out on significant time sucks.

Its a joke that was played out last year but seems to have returned for another season.  There is no Mckittrick, eventhough he will reply to this response asking me how I dont know who he is.

The traditional thinking is the offense is way behind the defense early in training camp because offense is predicated on timing for many moving parts and it takes time together to establish that.

 

If that is true, the offense is going to be a helluva lot better this year.

Got live training camp on NFL Network while following this. They’re @ the Pats* but go around the League. Bills STILL haven’t been shown... BASTARDS!

 

Why should you be surprised?  Even some "Bills" fans on this board who never pass chance to kick the Bills are interested in that team.

I liked the pick last year and I loved "The Concept of Ray Ray Ray McCloud" but he was flat out lousy. McKittrick filled in for that concept and often did a damn decent job of it, particularly on the jet sweeps and short passes. We could use a jackrabbit of all trades like that as opposed to a 6th WR who is likely not going to get on the field. Hopefully the light came on for him.

There was an article this offseason where he said he got hurt at the beginning of the year last year and never really got up to full strength - said he is bigger/stronger this year
