Duke signed to active roster

Recommended Posts

I've been a huge Zay supporter, but this is about Duke.

 

Congrats to Duke and hope he does great for the Bills!

 

Be I interesting to see who is inactive at WR tomorrow

A few inches -according to Virgil..

If they are trying to phase Zay out and maybe trade him for a low draft pick it's probably not good to make him inactive. But that is a lot of conjecture. It's what I would do but McDermott and Beane have their quirks.

It'll be good to get some real evidence to support the ranting people have been doing on either side of this issue on the board.

Not surprising.  He seems to be a TBD poster favorite; let's see if he makes a difference.

My thoughts exactly, let's see what he does - hoping he makes an impact!

I said he'd get a shot before the year was out. I also said he would not be sent back down once he got here.

 

I'm standing by that. I'm excited as I think Duke will go up and attack the ball and snag those Allen fast balls that give other WR's some trouble

Welcome to the team, Duke!

 

Did we sign anyone to the practice squad?

This is awesome I can't wait to see how this experiment goes I think this kid fits what we need as a stark contrast to our small and speedy wr's

After reading a few more reports, I think we're looking at Foster inactive, due to injury and not demotion. He went from full participant Thurs to limited yesterday.

If he can make contested catches down the field he could find a place on the offense.  The other things are a most.  Teams, blocking, but adding a poor man Alshon Jeffery deep threat may help Allen stretch the field.  Being able to underthrow it and having a guy go get it could be a big difference.

Dont be surprised if Zay is used less or not activated Sunday as a wakeup call.

...so if you're an opposing other 31 GM, what in his skill set attracts you to give up any pick?.....you'll have to be objective and ignore his "TBD whipping boy status"......just curious bud...

Or ends. We'll see. Would love to see the guy have a big day. Just don't see that skillset translating to the NFL.

 

 

 

A tall WR who can out muscle CB's and has shown the ability to make that contested catch.

 

He is not a speed burner, His job is to fight and attack the ball in traffic. He has shown he is pretty good at that, and it is the biggest missing attribute we have in our WR corps.

 

He will be utilized much differently then Zay IMO

Zay can't even put up those numbers playing Madden.

I don't think you see much at all. But he was a second round pick, he had a great college career, he caught seven touchdowns last year, he can block. I wouldn't do it but some may.

We'll find out. My opinion is that anything Williams can do, one of the tight ends can do. I like that he's getting a shot; why not? It's not like the back end of the receiving unit has any standouts. Just don't have any real expectations.

Good to hear as I was hoping we would see him at some point.

 

Hopefully he can catch better than Mr Jones.

They've got dozens of small, quick receivers.  They need a tall, physical guy.  Duke looked great in preseason and I hope he's ready to go.
