Recommended Posts

So...Clowney is still trending for some reason?

Wawrow is Wawrow. To clarify for a couple of other posters Wawrow did not give his opinion regarding whether or not a deal was likely. He stated that someone high up in the organization shook their head no when asked about it. That's Wawrows way of not being tied down.

 

What was his take on AB? I remember he said slow the roll on the Rapsheet report, but didn’t he also indicate that they weren’t even interested? I don’t know his level of reliability in such matters.

Talking about these leaks and such.  The local Indianapolis people weren't the one to break Andrew Luck's retirement.  That was Adam Schefter who certainly didn't get it from the team directly either because the team was setting up a PC for 3pm today to tell everyone.  They didn't want it broken during the middle of a home preseason game with fans finding out on their phones.

 

Point being, there are lots of places to get information and lots of reasons to want to put stuff out at different times. Agents put stuff out, players put stuff out, people attached to the people put stuff out.  That Wawrow doesn't have it doesn't mean it's not happening.  It doesn't mean it is either. It just means that nobody that he has access to or a relationship with has said anything to him.

I'm just curious as to why Profootball Talk or any other site I looked at aren't running with this rumor.

Some people on this site know the real jw.  Plus, SDS wouldn't tolerate an imposter.  

 

Anyhoo, who else would be such a sycophant for The Replacements?

That is a good point- But is that the only reason to believe so? I’m sorry, I’m still blaking on the idea that a legit beat reporter trolls this message board... 

 

Well, back in the day, Lori Chase told me it's him...so there's that

I don't know, If I had to guess, I would say the Texans have weighed their chances of winning with both players...they have already attempted it and that ship sailed. Now other areas of the team are in need.

...I get what you're saying bud......but either Watt and Clowney on defense, isn't that side of he ball a better well known versus the untested, long term nature of the offense with Watson at the helm?...a solid Watt/Clowney infused defense may win you some games in spite of the youngster Watson's hiccups...just sayin'....

Yea I tend to agree.

 

JW also said they laughed at him when he inquired a couple weeks ago, yet there are still reports of the Bills working on a trade.

 


There are, however, no CREDIBLE reports of the Bills working on a trade.

We've heard it from three different no-name Twitter posters trying to make a name for themselves by discussing vague conjecture. 

Until someone halfway worth a darn reports anything about the Bills being interested, I won't believe they are. The only person who DOES have credibility that has weighed in on this idea is JW, and he specifically stated twice now that he was told there's nothing to it.

Believe what you want, but I'm filing this one under "wishful thinking" by Bills fans.

When the Talley fund was happening it was John that I chose to break the news that Darryl would accept the donations. We communicated many times through pm here. I can affirm, unequivocally, that he is the real John Wawrow.

No he didn't. Read what he actually said and you will realize that he was couching his words.

I agree with you, but perhaps the Texans just want to move on. Remember that Gaine wanted to keep Clowney and Watt together. The brass would not allow Gaine to pay Clowney and extend him.

"Spoke to someone earlier today about Bills/Clowney, person shook head no."

That's "couching his words" to you? 


Believe whatever makes you happy, but I'm sticking with "wishful thinking".

Thanks John, always appreciate your posts.  Couple follow up questions

  1. Is this person someone that for sure would know in the first place, or is it possible Beane is working on this and source wouldn't necessarily know yet?
  2. Lets assume he would definitely know, wouldn't it make more sense for them to say no at this stage since its not done?  Or would this person always tell you the true answer no matter what?

Just curious to the weight of their response...thanks again John!

I have assumed my usual post in the bushes outside Pegula’s house. It is currently raining hot water as it only does in South FL in the summer. I will endure it for the good of the team and by team I mean us.

 Ben Allbright said last week the Bills were interested or inquiring or something... this report is the 2nd one linking them. PFT is an aggregate and sometimes they have their own sources. They don’t run with “rumors” like this. In this case, these guys at PFN  seem to have a mole with the dolphins and a mole with the Jets based on the stuff they’ve put out. Someone is telling them, as with allbright, that the Bills are involved. To what degree, we don’t know.
