I had this feeling about Miller when we drafted him.....just that late round guy that does what he is asked to do really well.....doesnt have to come off the field because he can block.

 

Would love for him to pan out.....I actually would love for BOTH Knox and Sweeney to pan out

Miller was picked in the first round, so this makes no sense.

Its been 5 hours....any confirmation? 

I would like you all to meet the Anti-Astro.

Don't expect any from that fella.

Really think Badolbilz is the anti-Astro. Diametrically opposed assessment of the current regime.

Not good. Probably won’t make the team.

You think they're cutting a 5th round pick?  Doubt it.

 

I hated his college tape though.

Really. I thought for sure that he would overcome some of his weaknesses. Coaching up has not helped. Kid has talent...it is a shame if he doesn't make it.

McCoy is going to look like vintage Shady this year. Huge weapon nobody is talking about

McCoy's decline has been overstated, IMO. He had a bad season last year because the OL sucked a$$. That being said, if the OL doesn't get healthy and come together he's going to struggle this season too.

I live in the Buffalo area, and make the trek to training camp every couple years.  My observations from today(and they are the same every time I go, but for some odd reason, I choose to forget my prior experience).

 

1 - From the time I pulled in the Mendon HS lot(920AM) until I got off the bus at SJF(1015AM), almost an hour passed by.  😡

 

2 - Why do people bring little kids to practice and expect them to sit in the stands? :blink:

 

3 - Training camp for the most part is boring...and in the case of today, extremely warm for the AM. 😴 😵

 

4 - As I get older, people(strangers) annoy me at every turn.  :rolleyes:

 

 

That's my 2019 training camp report.  LOL

 

Don't worry. Camp will move to OBD in two years, if not one.

I expected much more from Joseph. I understand that he needs to work on some of the fundamentals, but his skill set is hard to ignore. Maybe live action will help.

I think he'll shine on special teams, his athleticism really jumps out.  When he "fires his gun", it's impressive.

 

But I saw a TON of missed plays in college.  Hopefully they can coach him up.

I have heard about his faults such as missed plays, bad angles, over pursuits and even making his own assignments. Another knock on him is his awareness and concentration. I would like to believe that with experience and coaching, he can overcome this.

I wonder if the Bills are having any buyer’s remorse. Star is strictly a “space eater” and a small one at that (6’2” 315). He averages about 1 tackle per game. His backup, Harrison Phillips, was much more productive, stats wise, in fewer reps. Mount Washington, all 6’5 365 pounds of him, was truly a space eater and managed to average over 3 tackles per game. I heard the Bills are starting to group Jordan Phillips more often with Ed Oliver. He is actually a bigger body than Star. I wonder as the season progresses if Jordan proves to be more valuable than the 7th highest paid DT. We shall see!

I think that Jordan Phillips is already very good and he will continue to improve. There have been comparisons of him  to Chris Jones of KC.

Crazy that it’s the last one. Seems like they just got to SJF. 

This year they have a shortened stay at SJF.   Usually they will come back for one more week after the Week1 preseason. Not this time.

Star is a space eater freeing others to do their job. However, our DL did not meet that expectation including the play of Kyle WIlliams.  I think Oliver will be the difference maker.

They cut their 6th rd pick last year. I do though VJ will be signed to the PS though. Who knows, maybe he sneaks on to the 53, but at this stage that would be a surprise. As someone else said maybe he shows up in the games and gains some traction.

That's my 2019 training camp report.  LOL

1.  This year I realized that Sutherland is a little quicker - one thing is that it turns onto the street midway through downtown - while the Mendon bus has to go the full length and has more delay b/c of that

 

2. Last Wed someone had the bright idea of bringing like 40 small kids from a YMCA camp and sticking them right behind me.  I thought they were going to explode.  Forgot how annoying groups of little kids can be :) (see 4).  After 20 mins the counselors finally realized the futility of having them there and thankfully they left.  I think even Britt and Grandma Allen were annoyed. 

 

3. I still like to go and see things/players up close.  It helps that I've scored passes to the Entitled Area the last couple years.  Can def say after going to SJF for 2 days then to the stadium practice  (the last couple years) - the stadium practice is much more of a snoozefest.  I do wish there was closer access at SJF - last year spoke to a guy who works every camp and he basically said McD really is focused on the actual football part of camp, and fan experience is really not high on his list of concerns (to put it mildly)  

 

4.  Truer words were never spoken

How so?

 

Was Astro a Petermaniac?  Did I miss that?:lol:

 

My predictions of McBeane's intentions have been very accurate(Jauron Ball 17') and I've given McBeane credit for the good things they've done.......Tre White, Allen, Edmunds, Oliver...couldn't tell you the last time I liked the first 4 players a Bills regime took in round one. 

 

But because I won't ignore the poor coaching hires and pro personnel decisions,  the inexcusable amount of uncompetitive "blowout" games and unprecedented first-two-season ineffectiveness against Belichick I am the opposite of Astro?    

 

I somehow think Astro doesn't like a lot of those "bad" things either.:lol:

 

As I've said many times..........you gotta' be making bad decisions on a near constant basis to be a bad team in the NFL.    Being a middling franchise means you are at least doing some things right.    

 

But it's not hard to be 15-17 in 2 seasons when you inherit a team that was 15-17 the prior two seasons.    Now it's just time to start winning.    It's OK for a regime to have to "prove it".......it's a violent, competitive professional sport.

Happens all the time.

 

If he’s cut, I doubt many will be surprised.
