Stephon Gilmore seems to think covering new Bills WR Stefon Diggs will be 'light work'

Recommended Posts

Still wondering what any of this has to do with Diggs...🤷🏻‍♂️

Not trying to be an ass...it’s an honest question...I read the title and then the OP and couldn’t see where they had anything to do with each other...🤷🏻‍♂️

Both are soft

I’m amazed that the Bills haven’t won 25 straight Super Bowls.  Every player on other teams sucks.  Even their all pros and guys with rings.  Gilmore sucks.  Sammy Watkins sucks.  Dak Prescott sucks.  Hell, I just learned yesterday that Mahomes isn’t a top 10 QB...

The hate here for two very good NFL players Who happened to also be good players for the Bills is freaking hilarious. Jeezus.

 

And posts like this are equally just as hilarious. Differing opinions of players, teams. It's what's done here.

I'm gonna treat this thread as a test to see how sensitive folks are here. Gilmore liked a tweet that someone else put out there about a player who has yet to play a down for us and some panties are bunched up already. Wondering how many pages this garners. My guess is 15.

Edit: If anyone replies to this like it's personal to them, please include whether you wear t-backs, thongs, etc.

 

This is good. :beer:

It should have been Rex and Rob that they turned on.


Oh they did!  Were you not here in 2016?

There is an element of this in the fan base for sure.  BUT... there’s also some MAJOR hindsight as well.  
 

So...nether argument is really perfect.  I guess that what makes sports fun

Well it’s the same logic used here all the time with FAs that went else where. “The team sucked with him here”.  As if that means the player sucks. 
 

I don’t think them winning the super bowl makes them great players. Their performance on the field does. More so in Gilmores case. Watkins has had flashes just inconsistent, but you can argue Chiefs don’t win Super bowl without him. 

How so?  As a receiver you are only as good as the # of times they throw to you & whether you catch or drop the ball.

 

Are you saying, with proof that Watkins is running bad patterns, not getting open or dropping passes?

I like how the white knights that are trying to get in Gilmore's pants in this thread don't wanna talk about his first season with NE...

The revisionist history on Sammy Watkins around here is nothing short of delusional.

 

There is this perception of how good he is and then there is the reality of his on the field production.

 

The reality is that over the past 4 years has been an average receiver in this league who has been plagued with inconsistent play and injuries, who once in a long while can muster up a string of 2-3 good games in a row.

 

The perception of him is that he is this “very good NFL” wide receiver.    Grant it, that opinion of him has gradually diminished over the years but what is the basis?  It certainly isn’t his production.  What is the relative scale they are looking at?   The dude absolutely will disappear for several games at a time.   That’s a fact, an undeniable one at that.  Because when someone states that a player is “very good” then to me that implies at the very least top 10 in the league.  There is no reasonable objective metric where you can argue that Watkins is an even top 30 WR in this league over the past 4 years.

 

With that said, no big deal of Gilmore “liking” a tweet from a fan.   Making a mountain out of a molehill but I’m sure Diggs will remember it.

 

Gilmore was always a good to very good DB with the Bills and he took it to the next level with the Patriots.  He deserves all the accolades in the world.

 

The reason why he wasn’t beloved here is because he comes across as aloof.  And when you have a losing organization such as the Bills, fans don’t like players who don’t endear themselves with the fan base.  They want passion.  Not saying that was right or wrong but it is what it is.

He was a stud while here and just gets away with more in NE

Considering John Brown "socially distanced" him, Gilmore should STFU

 

 

 

Gilmore is going with his standard line: “That was somebody else’s guy. I’m not pointing fingers, I’m just going to stare at somebody.”

 

 

I’m not buying it.

Dopey come on panties? First up that would never be said to my face. I have to admit it was a question as I guess I haven't watched the Patriots as much as you have? Dopey were you watching the nfl before everything became flagged in offenses favor? The game today is so much different for NFL quarterbacks, with the basically no contact on the quarterback to not touching the receiver. The game has changed so much and hugging f Tom Brady even gets farted on, here's the flag. The guy is definitely a great Qb as much as it pains me to say it, but Qb's of previous eras were playing a much in a much tougher time to play the position. When was the last time you even seen Brady take a good lick, it happens but far and away way less than pre 2000s? The part I don't understand is a lot of people in this thread and previous threads seem like closet Patriots fans, Dopey do you have a Tom Brady jersey in your closet?

Bills fan all the way. Been a fan since around 1974. I scream at the tv as much as anybody when soft penalties are called when a QB is hit. No closet fan here. I have admitted on TBD more than once that I grew to appreciate their winning ways. Tom won a ton without much offensive talent for most of his 20 year career. Doesn't mean I like him. I'm as glad as anyone here NE seems to be on the outs as a dominating franchise. And yes, I'm a Gilmore fan, but as someone mentioned earlier, getting rid of him and Darby was the right thing to do. Unlike Rex, Mcdermott knew better than to try and fit a square peg into a round hole. Gilmore didn't fit what we do on defense. The only jerseys I own are a Bruce Smith jersey I bought back in his playing days and London Fletcher.  

As for the panties comment, in my 1st post I jokingly asked anyone with their panties in a bunch to at least let us know what kind they were. I even joked about my panties. I think everyone else here got the joke. Not everyone liked it, but got it. So far, only one person seemed offended. Hey, hopefully we can enjoy a great season by the Bills when all of this is over. In the meantime, stay safe and GO BILLS!

I wear boxers, by the way.

Oh yeah, I'm in the camp that thinks Gilmore didn't want to be in Buffalo and never gave his all here. I thought he was an excellent player but I was frustrated with his lack of consistent effort and how he blamed others when he got beat. He's definately an all pro now, though.

Maybe when Rex showed up and ruined the defense, but before that what made you think Gilmore didn’t want to be here?

His unwillingness to tackle, mostly. It meant to me that he was unwilling to put his body at risk because he was playing for himself and not the team. That was my interpretation. And he just never seemed that engaged. I know he's a quiet guy, but I've seen him play with a lot more effort in NE than he did in Buffalo. You can tell he's giving it his all out there and I never once got that sense when he was in Buffalo.

Gilmore's just mad because he's still having to ice those ankles as well as.his taint...

John Brown is just scary fast. Knox and Beasley should have so much room to operate

you aren’t wrong.  There were a lot of weak efforts and arm tackles that Gilmore missed last year

how about his “look around and try to blame the safety after big completions”

look? That became a staple look. 
 

I do think he has improved in NE, but he remains a real grabby player and just gets away with more in NE than he did here.
