Bills Training Camp: Day 4 - 7/28

Does sound like Foster is the #4 at the moment. 

It could easily be that they feel Brown and Foster are somewhat redundant, and more effective together in 4WR sets, and that Cole in the slot, Zay running intermediate routes and Brown being the deep guy is the best three pronged attack. I don't happen to agree with that in total because I don't think that Zay is a good intermediate guy, he is best at the 3-8 yard routes like Beasley will be doing. But there is a logic to it. Not to mention that Foster does seem to need a fire lit under him, and Zay had a great off-season and was the veteran starter at that position last year. Zay needs to take a giant leap in year three in a lot of areas, I sure hope he does. Foster needs to show he can run and be effective in 5-15 yard routes. He showed flashes last year but just flashes.

🤣🤣🤣 For entertainment, you should visit fan boards and media for "right Josh"'s new team and see what they have to say about him

I've been to finheaven and another Dolphins forum and I can't find any meaningful Josh discussion other than a few generally optimistic comments, aand one thread declaring their QB situation the best in the league. Maybe I misread your post, did you see doom and gloom? Or are you just laughing at their optimism in general? It reads just like ours has any year in the past really.

Everybody really needs to chill out with the Foster thing... he got cut last year because he didn’t produce during camp... but when the games counted the boy showed up... we’ve been fans of players long enough to know that not every player balls during practice...

 

Is it an interesting topic? Sure... Being blown way out of proportion? Absolutely... Relax y’all...

Agreed, John Brown is also taking his role but that’s ok. Brown is way more polished at this point so he should be more of a focal point. Having Foster as the fourth wr is ideal. That means everyone else is playing up to their standards and RF can just be a weapon against back up cbs

Wow.... not to shocking, but what does it say that Bodine can’t even get reps with Morse sitting. Feliciano and Long both make the squad based on this move here.

That he will be cut at some point...

I think it as much about Foster's mistakes in route running still based on what I hear and read. But I am not in camp, obviously.

I know it is way early, but so far, this does not sound like a 16.8 points per game team.

All the reporters sound much more upbeat about the offense.

So was Cut last year because of his work ethic in Practice. They do Sign a WR that busts his ass in practice already runs all the routes and has same speed. So Foster should be on notice and not Loaf at practice. 

 

Now that hat being said do they cut him (I doubt it) but can he lose a starting job that was there for him ABSOLUTELY.

Um incorrect.  Foster made the team last year and got cut after the 6th game "that counted", because he was making route running mistakes and on his deep routes, not contesting for and even not catching balls that went right through his hands.  After about a month on the Taxi Squad and an attitude adjustment, he came back refocused and contributed.

This year, we've seen Foster fail to adjust/contest for a couple deep balls (his bread and butter) and make at least one mistake lining up that Allen called him on.  People who are there have also commented on body language.  I don't think McDermott is calling him out in a presser because it's "way out of proportion" - that doesn't seem like McClappity's style.  He's concerning the coaching staff.  He's got that thing you can't coach (speed) and he'll get every opportunity to make the team, but if he doesn't change state, it's not totally beyond belief that McKensie and someone lower on the camp depth will make it and Foster will find himself looking for a new hat - especially if McKensie has successfully been strengthening himself.   Foster shouldn't bank too much on his combination of fast 40 time and height.

I recall a lot of snark when we’d picked up Gore, some from me, but it sounds like he’s going to make an impact as a leader and on the field.

See above.  Not his work ethic in practice - his actual performance in the 1st 6 games.

I love hearing good things about Singletary, especially in the passing game. Allen is going to have some really good outlets when plays break down.

Anyone know what was up with Jones today? Dont remember if I saw him early in practice, but definitely he was standing on the sidelines dressed but not in with 1s, 2s, or 3s for at least the last half of practice.

I’ll give u that... Either way, we’re talking about the same person who stayed in Buffalo after the season to get his game stronger are we not? He did everything right in the offseason and now after 3 “practices” people think he’s called it quits or something...

 

It can be a hundred different reasons his body language is the way it is... maybe he got girl issues, maybe he’s going through emotional stress, depression, heat, who the Hell knows? Knowing coach, he’s very close to his players and I’m sure we’ll find out if it’s a cause for concern sooner rather than later... but nothing McClapClap said makes me think it’s over for Foster... My own personal opinion is the heat more than likely has him exhausted. But as I said, we don’t know for sure...

I think Singletary is going to be EXTREMELY fun to watch! 👀

I hear from where you are coming from. But those in game issues are solved via practice. So was cut and signed to PS where he busted his but to get better after being humbled. Now comes into camp (After Bills signing same type of player, that runs better routes, in UFA) as he arrived and back to loafing. Yelled at by Josh Yesterday. Called out by McD. Maybe those will get his light back on and the feeling of I have arrived gone.

Actually, sounds like Foster has been demoted from #4. Cam Phillips on the rise.

 Keep Grinding Kid. Make my bold prediction come true that your play is going to force Shady off the roster via before season trade.

You'll give me a verifiable fact?  Big of ya! 🤣

 

Everybody is out there in the same freakin' heat, including John Brown who has a bona fide genetic condition that makes him more susceptible to heat, exertion, and dehydration.

It's NFL football, Man.  Yes, he did everything right this off-season, but when the coach calls you out in a presser and says you need to "evolve", you better make a change, especially if you're later seen making a concentration drop from the second string QB. 

Meanwhile if you don't, there are guys behind you who would love to have your spot.

How much does it take to sit in your dorm room. Study and actually line up in right spot for practice. Only to be called out by your QB when you go walking back to huddle

Everything I'm hearing is that the Shady comparisons were dead on. We were missing a bona fide difference maker on offense last year. If he can be that guy along with the improved offensive line our run game should make a big leap.
