Andre Roberts is a waste on the 46

Recommended Posts

Something I've been thinking about and today confirms it for me.  The Bill's return game isn't good enough to waste a spot dressing Roberts. 

I believe they'd be better off dressing Duke.

 I agee, why did we sign him? He is constantly not making it to the twenty and costing us yards. He’s not fast. 

Duke doesn’t have the skill to turn into anything special. I think they are both gone next year.

Agreed.  He's lost his speed.    Nothing left in the tank...

One can hope.

You have any evidence pointing to this or just some unsubstantiated opinion of yours?

I my opinion, he's played well for us this year.  Not too much today, but over the year he's been good.  There are other areas needing more attention.

Andre has been a surprising disappointment. He hasn't busted 1 good kickoff or punt return all season.  But our punt and kickoff block coverage might be the worst in the league. Farwell is actually worse than Crossman.

Seriously? He was one of the only non-Defensive Bills to do his job competently all day today. He caught all the balls that came to him, for example. The days of Devin Hester are long gone - big returns just don't happen much anymore.

uh. Is this a serious question? He had his shot and failed, he’s been inactive since. He has RAW potential but is not good. Don’t think he sees the field again this year and we release him during off season.

Not his fault.....the blocking he gets is horrid

 

He much more noticable because behind Brown and Beasely we have JAGS

 

You get a talented WR to play across from Brown and watch this offense pick up.....Bease would always be open

He's not an issue for the Bills.  He's not the reason Duke isn't dressing either.  This reasoning is misplaced.

Roberts can't do much when the Ravens gunners are running down the field freely, not even slowed down by the Bills.  He had no chance on the PR's.

I think they need a good veteran and a high round rookie at the WR spot.

Didn't he have the 3rd most return yards going into this game? I mean he hasn't had a homerun yet but he's been consistently good.

They need to draft two wideouts.  Go get KJ Hamler from Penn State and drop Roberts.

McD will still dress special teams dynamo sinorice Perry. Guy constantly over does it with special teams at the expense of the offense. One or both of Julian Stanford and Sinorice Perry should be inactive to help the offense with guys like Yeldon, Duke, or Sweeney.

 

You’re telling me Yeldon wouldn’t have helped underneath catching short passes today on those cover 0 blitzes? He did great against NE in that role. Or maybe Duke gets you a physical catch today against a physical defense that bullied our diminutive receivers. Sweeney can’t be worse than Kroft. Guy is invisible.

I think he's one of the elite returners in the NFL. He's been a bit unlucky on returns, but that's the NFL in 2019 for you. 

 

Do we really want Hyde out there risking injury? Or some special teamer who might muff the kick? Roberts will get us those 7 extra yards on a punt every time. I like having stability back there. I wouldn't mind seeing Duke given a shot, but not at the expense of Roberts.

Roberts has been fine. He makes decent decisions and is sure handed. 

He's not the problem on the 46.

Gore doesn't even belong on the 53. Yeldon should be active. Gore has brought nothing to this team.

Give it up!

 

Williams isn't playing, even if they were to activate, he's not seeing  the field.  Likely if they didn't dress Roberts it would be someone else other than Williams.  Give up the love fest and say good bye as barring a huge off season improvement, not likely he'll be here next year..

You'll note I said "return game."  The Ravens took the ball all day at the 25, and the Bills would've been better off doing the same.  Roberts has added nothing on O, and the return game isn't good enough to take advantage of his skills.  They will definitely add someone next year who can be more flexible.

He's pretty good on returns and has had some big catches this year. We played the best team in the league and had a chance to win, Roberts is not a problem.

I don't think you'll find that I've been pining for Duke.  I simply think the return game is not good enough to take advantage of Roberts, and that they would be better off with having a big body WR on the 46 rather than a return specialist.
