For someone with the screen name Logic, you have absolutely none. 

 

Parrish, in today’s NFL would be exactly the same he was back then. Small and small. did I mention small? 

 

The guy was always too small for this league. And dumber than a box of rocks that had been smashed. 

 

Did i I mention how small he was? I’m not saying he’s small, but I’ve met him and my wrists are bigger than his calves. My forearms were bigger than his thighs. That’s a problem in this league. He was always hurt because he was way too small. He was a decent returner until he got tackled and then broke 3 bones. Come back 6 weeks later. Rinse repeat. 

 

He sure was small back then 

 

but he'd be a lot slower for today’s game

 

Magic 8 ball sez............

 

freakin hands down first ballot HOF iF only he started in 2018..........

 

With all the millions he stole from the Bills I feel no sympathy at all....

Most talented, not sure about that.  And the staying healthy part might be because he was 5’3” and weighed 125 lbs. 

Actually he was 4'11' and weighted 87 Ibs. He had a 1 inch third leg if you know what I mean.

Worst part about this post is that I had to see those uniforms/helmet again -- :sick:

Honest question. Let's say we dominated that era. Perennial contenders. Playoffs every year. Even won one or two big ones. Do we still hate those jerseys?

Eh, I hated the pick from day 1.  Let’s draft a midget with the first pick of the draft.  Typical TD move, trying to outsmart everyone.  At least it wasn’t Tavon Austin in the first round. 

 

 

 

My pick there was Adam Terry, OT coming out of Cuse.

 

He didnt go on to be an All-pro or anything, but he did ok his first 4 years in Baltimore, and would rather have seen a dedication to building the Lines than a flashy Kick Returner who was too small for the NFL.

 

I'll never forget when that pick came in.

I'm biased, of course, but I think top 5 without a doubt.  The others I put in that category are the Cowboys, Packers, Raiders, and Steelers.

 

All sharp, clean and classic. Add the Colts & Giants to that list too.

 

Bottom of the barrel; Tampa Bay(offensive to the eyes), Jets(great color they switched to, but horrible execution), and New England & Cincy are just overall incoherent design trainwrecks.

I just recall his size was an issue at the time, could be wrong. Goodwin the best to compare to?

Smaller. Goodwin has an inch or two and played in the 180s. Roscoe was listed at 175lbs, but I bet he was closer to 170. And that all seems pretty close to you and I, but on the field makes a huge difference.

The most horrible play of the most horrible game I have attended in my life (2:30 mark)...

 

 

That being said, still liked him as a player.  Hope there is some way to resolve this for him.

...think I remember him being called a "luxury pick" at the time......and the coaches could not figure out how to use him effectively (I think)..

Good question.  I compared it to the Sabres and those slug jerseys.  Probably one of the best periods of the Sabres but those jerseys still are awful looking.  I hate watching the highlights from that.

 

i think the Sabres (royal blue and gold) and the current Bills have some of the best uniforms in sports so they should just keep them as is.

I'd wear a pink and purple polka dot jersey to get back to a Sabres team that good.

I vividly recall that as one of the worst, if not the worst NFL games I have ever watched, right down to the hideous Bills uniforms..  The "winning" QB was none other than Derek Anderson, went something like  2-16 for 26 yards.

 

Interesting to see Edwards getting sacked, his weak arm, Lynch, TO,   even the  fat slob Rob Ryan has an appearance.

The crowd was screaming "Fire, Dick; Fire, Dick" at the end of the game....and four short weeks later it was done.

Forgive me if i left any doubt it was anything but sarcasm...

 

Someone had a too powerful outburst about how RP would be a superstar today, then got real snippy when called on it.... made my day

Favorite off-field Roscoe moment: the first time it snowed during his rookie year, he was afraid to go outside. A teammate had to pick him up at home and drive him to practice.

Parrish was not much as a receiver, really just a bum who would once or twice a season break a big play. But he was for a few years one of if not the best punt returner in the league. So while the pick should be labeled as a bust it wasn't a complete waste either as at least he produced as a returner. 

 

Sadly this was a compounding effect from the Losman pick. Losman had a big arm and the team was looking to surround him with speedy receivers in order to cater to his skillset. This was another blunder that cost the Bills several years of quality football in favor of trusting mind numbing mediocrity.

Truth.

 

Hated those unis - looked like something that would be spawned if a Titan player knocked up our flag.
