I don't know. I get the feeling there's a lot of pent up negativity waiting to pour out with the next bad performance. We're not used to this much competency.  I listened to Jerry Sullivan's podcasts today and the guy sounds like he's withering away. He's got nothing to go off on. He's even begging his reporter guests for any crumb of bad news from Bills camp.

Oh there are definitely a handful of members here just licking there chops waiting for that first rough day from Allen.

For the love of god, why?  If there is any time to get excited and "pumped up" it's now!  We've got an up-and-coming HC, a young stud at QB, a roster finally brimming with talent, and a front office that is actually following through on a plan!

 

I read posts "worrying" about this and that -- a post earlier in this thread is by someone apparently "terrified" about how a player may let him down.  Get a grip!  If you can't have fun with this team after all we've been through as Bills fans please consult your mental health professional immediately!  BBFS has a cure!

 

 

Been a die hard fan since 1963. Pumping up every TC can wear on you, but I can tell it's happening again. My wife says I'll never learn and that's likely so!

Wide receiver

If the first four days are any indication, Brown and Beasley will be front and center of the Bills’ passing attack in 2019. Brown has already shown off his deep-route ability to beat the defender, track the ball over his shoulder and complete the catch. It’s his intermediate route running to the sidelines, however, that’s largely underrated. The route complements Allen’s arm strength just as much as the deep ball. The early signs for this connection are all positive.

 

As for Beasley’s footwork and route set-up are, I can recall only one Bills receiver in recent memory who was as agile: Stevie Johnson. Beasley reads the defender much like a ball-handler in basketball when trying to set up a crossover. It took a few misfires through the first two days, but Allen and Beasley got on the same page in a big way when the pads went on over the weekend. On Sunday, it resulted in six receptions on 17 pass attempts.

 

Zay Jones and Robert Foster have their work cut out for them if they want to be prolific pieces of this offense. Outside of an early red-zone catch and coaches vocally admiring his route-running, Jones has been mostly silent. Despite the lack of targets, Jones has been working primarily with the first-team offense. The former second-round pick also sat out of team drills Sunday for an undisclosed reason and was spotted speaking with members of the medical staff after practice. Foster has been working mostly with the second unit as Brown’s primary backup. Although Foster is considerably taller than Brown, they have similar skill sets, and the second-year player has flocked to the veteran as a mentor. Through four days, Foster is firmly the fourth wide receiver.

 

Andre Roberts has worked on both the inside and outside of the formation. Along with his returning duties, he seems entrenched as the fifth receiver on the depth chart. The battle for the sixth spot starts with slot man Ray-Ray McCloud. The 2018 sixth-round pick returned to Buffalo with a more chiseled physique and it’s showed so far in on-field results. Victor Bolden Jr. had a strong spring but has since disappeared, working behind both Brown and Foster. Cam Phillips, as he did last summer, has made some flashy plays that have created more opportunities for him — including time with the first unit in Jones’ normal spot on Sunday. Undrafted slot receiver Nick Easley has also provided some spark with the third-team offense. Isaiah McKenzie, Duke Williams and David Sills V have all faded into the background at camp.

Exactly.  This is what people did after the bad pre-season against the Bengals last year.
