Has anyone seen an actual good breakdown of the Bills DL?

Bills D-line is just OK. They can generate pressure if they blitz, but Addison, Epenesa ,Murphy and the interior lineman can't do it effectively. Maybe if Hughes had another sack guy on the opposite side, we could get consistent pressure. The difference between getting pressure with the D-line only is huge for the LBs and the back end..

Move heaven and earth to get Von Miller in here and draft a 1-tech. Don't resign Lotulelei who is also overpaid.

HAHA you were in the Williams vs Milano thread saying we should retain Williams, Feliciano, and sign a pro bowl OL.  Not sure what resigning Star means, but if it means cutting him I don't know what else to say other than youre not thinking about this seriously.  Moving Heaven and Earth will not be enough for the wish list you described with Von Miller.

yea 285 pounds is why it DOES make him a bad choice for one Tech. and it showed.

Yupp. That's what i'm saying... given the circumstances, i dont think he played that bad.... at all.

 

I really think Casey makes a lot of sense.

 The rest of the DL consists of backup caliber players. Addison, Jefferson and Butler are WAY overpaid and should all be released to make cap space. Murphy was overpaid as well and should be gone. Epinesa didn't impress. Beane needs to quit signing below average DL and paying them like solid starters.

 

Epinesa needs to change positions. The kid is fast and weak. He would make a good LB but I'm afraid if he doesn't change positions we've got another Aaron Maybin on our hands.

For all the talk of cut Butler, cut Jefferson, etc etc - has anyone seen a quality breakdown of how they were actually used this year and performance?

 

I personally have trouble with Joe Buscaglia's grades - they might be great, but I can't tell what they're based on.

 

I've been looking and haven't found something - film breakdown, even just an assessment of how many snaps each DLman played and in what role 1T, 3T etc?

 

I started to try for my own assessment and quickly gave it up as more time than I had to put into it - the way the cameras are angled it's often very hard to pick up who is on the field for each snap.  But it probably exists somewhere - maybe on SIS or premium PFF or Football Outsiders?

Relying on Star would be an awful idea... not only because he sat out last season but because he's not very good either...

I'm okay with Star starting but like to add someone to learn behind him, a guy in the mid to late rounds that should be there is Bobby Brown III from Texas A&M. The question with him is motivation, he played with it last season and had great stats, hopefully that continues to his pro journey.

If he can consistently draw sustained double teams and keep Edmunds clean, then I’ll be happy with him.  Lots of people mention that he did that in 2019.  I watched for it and I saw him handled by a single blocker or a quick chip from a second far more often than not.  And I saw him moved consistently.  That’s definitely not a statistical analysis and I can’t find one so don’t take it as gospel.  At any rate he’s on the team this year so I’m hoping for the best from him.

100% right BUT will he stay 100% healthy?

I am just glad a bunch of ya's realize that is an issue! gg
