Hightower

I wonder who the youngest player is to play in the pro bowl? He’s 21.

This is how you start building a league-wide rep.

 

Guaranteed, all the national stories on the Bills going forward will include mention of Edmunds...

Seems like the whole D was off to Orlando by halfway through the 3rd Q in the Texans game.

I honestly would rather he didn’t play. It’s such a waste. I get they don’t exactly play hard or anything but I would rather nobody risk any kind of injury for a worthless game. 
I wish they would just do skills competitions for everyone. I would enjoy that more. Less risk of injuries

Good for the kid. He took a nice step this year. He remains frustrating at times in run defense but I think we just have to accept he is never going to excel at that. What he does in the pass game in taking away passing lanes and pursuit in coverage is rare skill.

Absolutely. And at the end of the day, in the 2020 and beyond version of the NFL, his rare ability to massively impact the opponent's passing game outweighs his run game struggles.

There was recently a chart showing that the Bills had 6 DBs on the field the LEAST of any team in the NFL in 2019 -- Edmunds and Milano allow them to do this.

Here's hoping Edmunds' run defense improves over time. After all, he's still younger than much of the upcoming rookie draft class. Still, he'll likely never be an elite run defender based on his size and body profile alone. I have to imagine that a player as tall as he is will more often than not get out-leveraged in the "low man wins" game of blocking and block shedding.

The NFL's pro bowl?  I read on here he was terrible. 

The pro bowl must be moving him to DE.

Skills competition and then an NFC v AFC dodgeball game.  Or a spelling bee.

You should join them with your fire takes.  Don't come back B word

 

Yeah, that was a super molten hot take right there--I really went way out on a limb with that one.  Good pickup.

 

And.. "B word"?  ouch!  If you cut me, do I not bleed?

Still so young and just scratching the surface of his potential......love how these young guys are taking big steps forward year to year.

They'd better not or the Predator will feast.   What a natural, Bryce Paup like edge guy he could be with some refinement.  Bendy, quick, strong.

 

We seem to only blitz him in the gaps but once awhile it would be nice to line him up over a TE and send him.

Congrats! Awesome news for Edmunds. Have a great trip....and skip the game!  This isn’t baseball. If you play hard (and even if you don’t!) there is risk of getting hurt. If they DON’T play hard, why bother? It’s just a joke! I think the spelling bee idea from @Jauronimowould be FAR more entertaining! I mean, I might actually WATCH some of that!

I too would enjoy the spelling bee. See how many of these guys actually went to class and how many got free grades. 
 

First word.. Contract 

Second word.. Guaranteed

Dude, somebody needs to get AB back into the league, just so he can participate in the Pro Bowl Spelling Bee! His answers would be effin' GOLD!
