I stopped at PFF

 

 

I like that PFF is the sound we make when something is, well, lame.

 

raw

 

Coincidence? ;)

Anybody else feel Spencer Long might not make it and Bates does?

 

Tomorrow night will go a long way toward determining that.   If Bates has a repeat performance, I could see McBeane going for the young guy with upside, especially since there's a lot of veteran experience already on the O-line...

“I promise you, you guys haven’t seen anything yet,” Washington said. “The sky is the limit with this boy. He’s going to do some things because of his natural ability and talent but also his work ethic. He’s going to outwork the average guy.”

 

Sounds like they found another "McProcess" sort of guy.

I called this in another thread - Long is my surprise cut.  Don’t see him making it.  I view Bates as the Sirles replacement (supersub that can play all positions and offers game day roster flexibility).  Not sure if they give him an active roster spot or try to stash on taxi squad.  Doubt they move on from Teller given his contract situation, youth, Spain on a one year deal, etc.  Connect the dots.

I bet we get to see both guys early tonight going against better talent. I don’t want to see Allen hurt, but do you think they could start Bates? 

Why not start Johnson and Lawson at DE and see what they got?  You know what Hughes and Murphy can do.

They kept 9 OL going into last season.  I think they’ll do the same this year and keep Dawkins, Spain, Morse, Ford, Nsekhe, Feliciano, Long, Teller and Bates.

Agreed - that's my 9 as well. Thinking they put Boettger on PS too. McGhin may have had a chance to wind up there as well, but I believe they can keep him stashed on IR if they like him.

No one is fitting them for green jackets yet.

What's this about Nicklaus O'Leary now?

You think we're doing good.. until you realize that the Patriots have the highest rated offensive rookie (Jakobi Meyers), the 3rd highest offensive rookie (Jarret Stidham), the 8th highest offensive rookie (Hjalte Froholdt), and the 2nd highest rated defensive rookie (Chase Winovich).  

 

Hopefully in the Pats case preseason play isn't an indicator of regular season success!

If Bates and Johnson and even Sweeney prove good enough to just see substantial backup time, it's a big win for McBeane. I imagine all of them will be making close to the minimum ($480K, I think). That's a lot less than you're going to pay for a contributor off the street, which will save a lot on the cap.

Not to knock them but Bates has been only against the 2nd team and Johnson is only against 3 so far, correct? So while I like this info it is not enough to go on.

 

I'm not totally disagreeing with this, but consider the fact that he played tackle in college, and has been in Buffalo less than 2 weeks. Not to shabby.

I am very happy with the progress- I just find PFF not very useful in the preseason

I am a math teacher and I like numbers that quantify things but especially in football they are not the ending point. I do find PFF useful when they agree with me.😀
