rosen over allen

I really liked the Rex Ryan hire.

That Nathan Peterman had a shot at becoming a solid QB in the NFL.

Didn't notice this thread earlier. My worst take was -- I thought Kevin Kolb was a great signing as vet placeholder until EJ Manuel was ready as a fulltime starter. In my wisdom I believed the stories about him having put his durability issues to rest. I don't think I should quit my day job ...

This is the last Bills home game I have attended, sad but true. One for the ages, I was never completely down on Todd Collins after witnessing this game.

Back then I went to every Bills home game except pre-seasons.  I remember that game.  The fans were getting restless when Indy jumped to a big lead.  Jim Kelly was in the club level and the fans in the lower bowl were turning around, looking up  & begging him to come out of retirement & rescue the team.  By the end of the game I thought the Bills had stolen Collins in the 1995 draft.

 

What I didn't remember was all the empty seats.  Does anyone remember why the attendance was so low for a September game?  I know traditionally when they were still in the AFC East, Indy was one of the weakest draws in the league for Bills home games.

I don’t remember empty seats. I remember driving up to the game from Baltimore with some Colts fans and bumming in the 1st half, but I had the last laugh, and the last smack is always the best! Place was insane that last quarter.

Trent Edwards first start, looked like a legit heir to the Buffalo QB throne.

 

It was a joyous victory walk back to the lot, couldn’t wait to see what Trent would do next.

 

Whoops.

I was really into trading up for Watkins even leading up to that draft.

 

 

I loved Joey Harrington.  Also wanted the Bills to go after Colt Brennan with their first round pick.

I loved Chan Gailey, and his offense; and the Goon Squad led by Stevie Johnson. I really thought they were going to put it all together. Then Donald Jones got flattened by Vince Wilfork, Stevie didn’t train in the off-season, and Fitz was, well, Fitz. 
 

I stand by my hatred of George Edwards, and his “hybrid thang” defense.

We all make stupid statements in the heat of the moment. In years past, I was the mayor of stupid statements on TBD. But what opinion did you have that was your worst? 
 

My post, so I’ll start. And mine is recent and I got the appropriate amount of judgement for it:

 

I wanted to cut Bass after week one. 

Smarty Jones.

 

I remember your Bass thread, it was epic!

I was convinced that AJ McCarron was going to get us into the Playoffs on a regular basis...

And I was 100% certain that Derrick Henry was going to be a bust. He can't read holes, and only runs in a straight line.

I really thought Rob Johnson was going to be the man at QB - couldn't understand why anyone would play Doug Flutie over him....

 

I also had really high hopes for JP Losman - did that guy EVER have a great game for the Bills?

I was at NE when JP went down & I yelled "Don't get up".  That's how convinced I was Edwards was the answer.  I actually went over to some NE fans I had talked with before the game & said Trent Edwards coming in for JP would go down in Bills history the same way Brady for Bledsoe did in NE.

Bills related:

I wanted Josh Rosen, but Josh Allen was my second choice. So I was satisfied with the pick.

 

I was ecstatic when we traded up for Sammy Watkins. Didn't care what the price was, because we got the best WR in the draft.

 

I thought that Marcel Dareus(why do people here continue to spell his last name wrong?) would be a mainstay on our defensive line for a long time and he would be one of the best D-linemen we've had in Bills history.

 

NFL related:

Didn't think much of Patrick Mahomes. Never thought he would be anything special. That being said, I don't regret trading down with the Chiefs in the 2017 draft. 

 

I thought that the NFL would show integrity by placing asterisk marks next to every Patriots* Super Bowl championship along with every players statistic who ever played while Bill Belichick was head coach, and that all potential Hall of Fame credentials would be nullified.
