The improvement of this roster is incredible.

Rex Grossman went to a super bowl, Trent Dilfer won one.  Its rare but D can carry lousy QB's to the big game.

 

When on their rookie contracts agree. The problem occurs when QB is just good enough to demand and get high $$ on second contract.  Maybe not super high amount, but high enough that limits your other moves. 

 

See Ryan Tannerhill, Andy Daulton, Joe Flacco, guy in Detroit, Cam Newton, to name a handful.

Bortles was carried to the AFC championship

 

Nah, Bortles played well that year. He wasn't great, but he played above average, which is more than our QB's the last decade+ can say (outside of Orton).

Yep, and these coaching staffs sure as hell don't need to play 4 games to figure out who stays and goes.

 

The whole thing sucks and should be canned.  There's just no need for it, other than making $$$..but the teams could do that in other ways that are more forgiving to the fans.  

I'm curious, how are you making that determination, exactly?

 

 

Just in how they are carrying themselves on the sidelines. I'm not saying it's translating into production on the field but you can definitely see the team chemistry, the D and O seem to be cheering each other on instead of being 2 separate units.

Haha, Orton sucked and he was a coward.

On paper, these guys have a legitimate chance to be the greatest Bills team of the 21st century (I know, I know...not saying much...just get to 10-6 and be competitive in a wild-card loss and you've won this title). The depth is looking strong at virtually every position except maybe tackle. The 2019 schedule looks very manageable at this early stage of the season. I wish we had an elite #1 WR and elite #1 DE, but I believe Beane will get us those pieces next year. Most importantly, the 2019 Buffalo Bills look like the true definition of a TEAM - guys who actually like each other and like playing together and like working hard every day to achieve a worthy goal - rather than just a haphazard collection of talent like we saw with the Whaley and Donahoe rosters of the past. Just look at the character traits of each of McBeane's first round draft picks to see what I mean: White, Allen, Edmunds, and Oliver.

I love the enthusiasm but I think the 2015 roster is far superior.

preseason is a "no-biggie" for confirmed starters.  But for fringe starters, backups and  players on the bubble, it is pretty big.  Let us applaud their effort to make the 53 man roster.

👏👏👏👏

I will mentally throw roses or tomatoes or D cells depending on what they actually do on the field.

A former player on sportsradio the other day said vets needed about one quarter and a half to get ready

 

and rookies needed parts of 3 games to get used to formation and the speed of the pro game

While watching the game last night the one thought that kept popping into my head..."We're getting there"

We are still at least a year away but you can see the progress and the depth continue to grow.

When compared to last year, even now, it's infinitely better in many aspects both within the roster and without, including the coaches and even FO.

 

That said, I'm not setting many expectations for this year, and think we're at least another year of current roster development, system continuity/coach consistency, maintained cap management, and a 2020 FA/draft class away from seeing this team become the perennial playoff/SB contender we're all hoping for.
