Wrong Duke. This is Duke of Earl.  One of my favorite songs.

Do you think Zay is resentful at Duke?

Here’s proof that a good 3rd receiver can make a difference. Props to whoever made the call.

He was actually kinda open on the other TD as well but Allen smartly found Lee.

He has the right attitude and fits completely into Coach McD's philosophy.

Not a college football fan but when I saw him in CFL I thought "There is a NFL player".

I’ve gotta say I am really happy for Duke Williams, and the Buffalo Bills,  like what was said above, he looked like a NFL receiver while playing in the CFL.

 

A few here compared Duke with Darick Rogers, they were never even remotely close to being similar, it surprised me that anyone could draw that comparison, apples and oranges imo, DR never had a chance to make it in the league.  Gotta love B Beane, he knows his stuff.

 

Go Bills!!!

Very impressed with Duke.  He looks like a menacing dude out there.  Good run blocker.  "Catches" the ball..  sounds easy but all 4 of his catches were vice grip catches with no juggle, bobble, nothing, just a locked in snag.

 

I think he has the ability for some bigger plays but what we saw yesterday is exactly what we were missing..  Red Zone WR threat and a big possession WR (I think 2 of his 4 catches were for 1st downs.)

I tend to think Williams was given some positive feedback about eventually being promoted to the active roster when he was cut and signed to the PS. That's probably why he stuck around and did his utmost to be part of the team, even if only cheering on the sidelines on Sundays. While no doubt hoping that Zay would turn things around, I'm pretty sure that they used the time to prepare Williams for the transition from the CFL / preseason to the NFL and active on game day. Beane had a plan for him and Williams held up his end. It will be interesting to see how the chemistry with Allen develops. I too think he may be able to handle more responsibility once they get better acclimated.

He did. Before that, slow, drops, lack of seperation and effort on some plays.Given the buildup here, I expected more. But my mind is wide open.  I'm rooting for him.

What are your thoughts today?

Any word yet?  I suspect Zay got to Mama Jones with a Hush Order

That pass was perfect to

It really was. Not that it was extremely difficult but it was very nice dropback, look, step into throw and right on target for a TD, something we obviously all want more of. I also think it was a wise call by Daboll. I have no idea of knowing this but it seems to me that the Titans knew who he was, planned for him being out there especially in the redzone and very probably, especially with him isolated on one side, for it to be a jump ball into the corner pattern. That may be exactly why it was relatively easy for Duke to take one step out and then cut hard back in, because the CB was expecting the out. Who knows but that is immediately what I thought on the pattern. That it was a great call to be low and in instead of high and out.

He's a big dude, watching him line up next to other players. 

 

I would like to see them line him up close to the line, almost as TE to create some mismatches.  Run is a few times and let him engulf a DB.

I thought he played well. It seemed he certainly was a big part of the game plan and helped inject a little excitement into the offense. He should continue to improve moving forward, as he and Allen develop more chemistry.

 

It's a bit understandable he was somewhat tentative during the first couple preseason games. He was still getting adjusted to the NFL game, and quite frankly probably the Bills' playbook. Those early drops, while not a good look for a guy who was supposed to be a guy who caught everything, were probably just a natural part of having some much uncertainty and being a bit overwhelmed. That likely played a part in why he was put on the PS to begin with.  It looks like he used those weeks on the PS to learn and get comfortable.

 

I'm on board, though I never wasn't.

Gotta give it to the board on this guy , I thought he was another Darick Rogers and really stayed quiet on Duke but you guys called it and look like y'all were absolutely right. 

Comes in his first game , has the 2nd most WR snaps , Game winning TD and perfect catch rate. Huge reason why we were able to move on from vZay. 

 

Love my fellow Bills fans. I feel like myself , you guys pride yourself on knowing the game , just so knowledgeable and loyal. And every great team needs a guy with a name the fans can shout after making a play. Expecting big things from Dukkkkkkkeeee , happy to eat crow on this one
