I disagree. Yeah the GMFB crew gives the occasional shoutout to Bills mafia and whatever, but they’re just throwing a bone to the faithful.They quickly move on.  Their obsession with the Patriots et al is undeniable to anyone watching for more than about 15 minutes

I really enjoy the show but you aren't wrong here....

So they give a lot of time to the team that is always in SB??? 😉

I actually like the show and it’s hosts for the most part. My tolerance level for Pats coverage is low, so it colors my overall impressions. Most times, I switch the channel and come back to it. I don’t expect a ton of Bills related discussion, but they do put more out there than say NFL live on ESPN.

Yes, and a LOT is an understatement. Regardless of their success ( and the fact that most football fans despise them outside of Boston) it is the NFL network. There are 31 other teams in the league and their focus on that one team is obsessive. Besides, their collective opinion is always something like “ event or injury X doesn’t matter, because we’ll its the Patriots” and the HC ( and by extension the players)  are notoriously boring and mundane in interviews. So what’s to discuss ?

I mean if we switched roles, we would be pissed if they spend any time talking about the Pats who missed the playoffs 18 out of 19 years (how amazing would that be!).

I wouldn’t , as it is a league network and that type of coverage is always available locally.

Did you not think they would be motivated?  Fans overrate this stuff.  These guys’ jobs are on the line every game.  

 

But I agree Tre and Micah seem like top 100 players.  But I’m sure there are players on every team that think they are being snubbed.

 

Did you see Josh Allen with Tim Graham talking about his Madden scores?  Players respond to disrespect.  I think there's an effect.

I’ll agree with this. While these guys have internal motivation, I believe they constantly seek out external sources as well. It’s the way they stay on top.

earlier in the spring NFL Live was dedicating an episode to each division. basically included breakdowns of each teams moves and plans. well on its AFC east episode they literally broke down every other team other than buffalo. that takes it to a new level right there.... all I could do was chuckle.

So be it -- I don't watch much of this stuff anyway and what the national media thinks of the Bills is of no concern to me.

 

Oh, and news flash -- a team that has been to 3 straight Super Bowls and won 3 of the last 5 is going to be the primary feature most of the time.

God, the Madden stuff is so stupid.  Everyone thinks they are better than they are.  I really don’t think Allen or other players will be motivate that much one or the other.

With 15 hours to fill a week, all teams must get GMFB time during the offseason.

Patrick Mahomes #4    (but we were able to draft Tre White )

 

50 touchdowns, 5,097 yards and an MVP trophy. 


Khalil Mack  #3    (but Sammy Watkins before him)

 

The Bill's could have drafted both these players , I expect to be flamed and rightfully so

They had Larry Fitzgerald and AJ Green in the 50’s while Carson Wentz was 96. 

Was 96 the room number that he has at the hospital on a permanent basis.

When we start destroying the other teams in the division we'll see what they talk about.

But, but, but ... they wouldn't have been as good in Buffalo as they have been in KC and Oakland/Chicago so White and Watkins (who helped the Bills acquire Josh Allen) were "good picks".  It's the typical Bills fan's defense of the Bills regime du jour's draft gaffes -- which are repeated with sad regularity (remember the Bills passing on Brian Orakpo to take Aaron Maybin????) and then compounded by frequently letting their best players walk in FA rather than paying them.  FTR, both Stephon Gilmore and Robert Woods made the top 100.  Brilliant!

Reminds me someone on this board posted the Bills should have drafted OBJ and ruined his career 😄

Why is it "crazy"?  Beane and McDermott accomplished their goal of stripping the team of all its established talent and replacing it with JAGs and non-NFL talents plus a youngsters of varying quality.  The Bills had one of the lowest, if not the lowest, actual player salary total for 2018.  Ex-Bills Gilmore and Woods, both sent packing by the current regime in 2017, made the Top 100.

You claim not to care but here you are claiming you don't care.   Tell me another one.    FTR, it's players not media hosts who vote on the Top 100 players but keep up your whining.

I agree that the Bills have guys that could Ben in there. It’s only something like 10% of the league that votes though so it isn’t indicative of everyone. As an example if 22% of the AFC West votes and 6% of the AFC East the guys out West are more likely to be selected because the players are more familiar with them.

 

EDIT: 1,098 players submitted ballots this year. That’s way higher than in previous years (65% of the league).

 

Yea the process in general isn't indicative of what's going on around the league. The players are given a list of already narrowed down players and then asked to rank their top 20 out of that list. They then add up all the rankings and that forms the list. Ties in 'points' the NFLN makes the decision of who gets ranked where.

 

EDIT: I feel like one of these threads starts every year when a Bills player isn't ranked or ranked "high enough".

Especially with the second ranked defense last year. Hughes, White, Poyer and Hyde are all deserving of recognition. Milano too
