Should I be mashing the F5 key or is Watt going to drag this on for months?¬†ūü§™


Probably not till next weekend. Teams are still trying to get a feel for what to expect this year with tags and whatnot, so I don’t think anyone on any side is in a huge rush.

Oh please sweet baby Jesus, get it done Beane. Get it done right now

You don’t trade JJ Watt if you’re the Texans, you release him so he can go where he wants. It’s the classy move.

I think I figured this out.    1:14 AM Feb 24, 2021   1+1+4+2+4+2+0+2+1=17   Josh Allen!

Yes... 17 and 18 here, 19 in Detroit, before he broke out in 20 in Washington. Good for him, but no way that could have been anticipated. 

 

The way to anticipate the possibility would be to take into account a guy transitioning from QB to TE and having to do it while learning 6 different playbooks between November 28 of 2016 and the summer of 2020.   The Bills offenses of 2017 and 2018 were very different and both made it very hard to evaluate the talent on the team.     After 2018 they gave up on Logan Thomas and Wyatt Teller.   Two guys that would get a lot of scratch on the free agent market now.

And on Teller I think it is safe to say a guard who was okay as a rookie when he got on the field and was then traded before his 2nd year.... even at that point there was reasonable chance he would turn out to be good. At the point they let Thomas walk I'd have put those chances below 10%. And for all your "he showed promise in Detorit..." he had 170 yards. I am not saying he can't play. He can. But he is an exception that proves the rule.

The reviews on Teller were mixed as a rookie.  Thomas was new to the position but his physical talent was known.   He was a top recruit and stud athlete.

 

I think the odds that Teller would become a second team All Pro when he played just 11 games.....not just "good"........and the chance that Thomas would emerge as a good receiving TE.....were not as different as you'd like to make it seem.:rolleyes:

 

It will be fun to watch Thomas next year he was really beasting at the end of the season.

Coincidentally, when he was getting 9/7/16/12/6/9 targets in his last 6 games.

 

Like you said, offensive skill positions were horrendous in 17/18. Almost all of their careers are all pretty much over. LT is the aberration. Good for him.

So you’re saying with 100+ targets Knox couldn’t put up similar numbers? 100 targets is a crazy amount of passes to a tight end 

 

100+ targets TE for the last couple seasons are Waller/Kelce/Kittle or Ertz in 2019 numbers.

On that number of targets, all but Ertz broke 1000 yards, and Ertz had >900 yards

 

Thomas had 610 yds.

 

I'm not trying to take away from him, he had a good year and played capably

But if he were playing for us, I think we'd be talking about how he wasn't a difference maker at TE, and didn't get enough YAC

I mean, we have no idea at this point if the Bills are going to make him a serious offer

What if we donated and he goes elsewhere, then what? We look like a buncha moronic donating Minions.

Money still goes to charity. What is wrong with tithing for nothing in return?

Yeah, in McBeane we trust. But, why not potentially make his job easier,  while giving to needy children at the same time? I mean, tithing is also an obligation for many, as well.

Eh I don't know never want to talk anyone out of donating to charity but it is kind of a weird thing to do.

This. I'm waiting for something further than "the Bills called" before I get excited. For all we know the call could have just been "You want how much? Okay, cool, nice talking to you".

Absolutely nothing wrong with giving, but why not give to a cause that serves one's local community or is near to one's personal heart, instead of to an athlete's foundation in the hope of influencing him?

People sometimes need a bit of extra motivation to give. In fact, I'd be willing to bet that the net result of monies given to charity, because of Bills' Mafia grabbing Watt's ear, is higher than if the idea was never broached. Overall the aftermath is a more money to charity, and thus I support it.
