Against the Ravens it will have to be two notches.

That’s the way it looks. They are really playing well since beating the Patriots.

Well, there was that thing about McDermott going all Antonio Brown and whatnot a couple weeks ago. :lol:


Yeah. Glorifying and vilifying people are dangerous practices and should be avoided without exception.

Excellent! Just a conversation between a couple of fellows. So genuine in its simplicity.

To think that there were draft day "rumors" suggesting the Bills were going to trade up for Q. Williams! ouch! 

 

The Bills did call teams about a trade up. It was for Ed Oliver.

IF we beat the Ravens, McD should be in serious consideration for COY. If the hand of god gifts us to win out... he's a shoe in to win it.

Peter King lost all credibility with me when he bought a beer to drink for Thanksgiving and forgot to drink it.  Really Pete?  You’re better than that!

 

good article though, thanks for posting!

I read this today. He probably did touch a nerve a bit given the lack of respect he showed to the team. 8-3 going in as underdogs and they were ignored. Kings own lead up "little engine that could" shows the disconnect until the Bills curb stopped Dallas.

 

I still read Kings FMIA column but not to the depth or fervor as I did when he was with SI. He has become part of the media football giant that doesn't think. Mark my words most weeks he focuses on the same grouping of teams PHI, NOLA, NE, SEA, PIT, SF, and IND. Even when one of them are bad he gives them more press then they deserve. His love fest for Chip Kelly with Sam Bradford borderlined with obsessive. I am pretty sure he has given more writing space to the Phins this year then the Bills. A Bills fan wrote in leading up to the season asking why he has not said much about them and his own words "their not exciting" and "back when Rex and McCoy came they had more to cover". Mind you that team finished 8-8 with the HC fired a year later whereas this one is ascending with a good young QB, but the truth was straight up said he only cares about about what is exciting not the actual league. That is my issue with anything NBC related right down to the lead in song and video clips. They have their favorites and play for them regardless of reality.

Yes....and it is turning out quite well. Just his rookie year and plenty of upside remains! Patience will pay off!

He's easily the best coach they've had in a long time.... he deserved all the criticism in the world for that end of the game sequence against the Browns and he gets too conservative at times, but he is clearly showing he is a leader and a good coach. 

 

McD clearly demonstrated that he learns and will make necessary adjustments. After Cleveland, the Bills turned it up a few notches to become more aggressive in all phases of the game and McDermott deserves all the credit. I believe the coaches are getting as much as humanly possible out of each player. How many coaches could say that?

McD needs to be in the coach of the year discussion, and Beane in executive of the year

 

If the Bills were to win out or at least 3 out of 4 including this week, I think he'd get it.  If they lose to Balt. and Balt. keeps the #1 or #2 seed, likely will go to Harbough in particular with what he's done with Jackson who was the #32 overall pick.  And a great defense too.  Ditto for Beane.

You mean....the patience that so many had lost just a few weeks ago? Geez! Give it some time people! That should go for all the young guys. 

 

But just wait, we will hit some bumps in the road and the same folks will be piping up again about......something they don’t like. That’s fair, as long as complaining is not ALL you do. That gets tired. There is plenty of good and bad, but to me the big picture leans heavily toward the good right now.

Oh absolutely! This team is developing strength and character as the season progresses. Reservations about the Bills can be expected. I had my doubts, but anything that they do at this point will not surprise me. When McDermott had the conversation with Peter King, he sounded genuinely pleased...to the point of relief that this process is clicking. Good stuff...almost makes me homesick!

Part of his “I think I think” segment stood out too:

 

6. I think the Jets will regret passing on Ed Oliver for Quinnen Williams in the top 10 of the 2019 NFL Draft. If they’re being honest, they already do.

 

 

 

Music to my ears. 

Should give the Jets a 5th for Williams.

I believe this is illegal (contact with team when on suspension) and their coach should be suspended with hopefully suspension occurring when they play the Bills.

 

Quote

After the game, the Steelers had Pouncey FaceTimed into their post-game locker-room huddle. “He broke us down,” Haden said. (Translated, that’s something a coach or leaders does at the end of a practice or game, like “Steelers on three, 1-2-3!” or something collegial like that.)

Gateway drug - I thought it was MJ.

Quote

4. I think this was the reaction of one veteran league front-office man to the suspension of Arizona cornerback Josh Shaw till 2021 for gambling on football: “Not that this is the tip of the iceberg or anything, but I do think there’s more gambling going on than anyone thinks. I believe fantasy football is a gateway drug; how many players play fantasy football, and for how much money in their leagues? Maybe not much, but the temptation has to be there to use inside info about your own team to use in a league. Players play cards and dominoes in the locker room. I just think it’s too easy for players to think they can get an edge because they’re sure they know more than the average bettor.”

People notice when you have a good team, which we now do, which we pretty much haven't had for the better part of 2 decades.  You win more than you lose, you'll likely get attention, it's not rocket science.

Yes just like the Philly game...we were getting attention then.....yuck ....
