If they win the SB this year.........they will look like geniuses for having not expended any future assets to improve.

 

But if their deficiencies cost them,  eventually Bills fans will forget that they didn't make moves.

 

Bills fans have largely forgotten that Polian sat on his hands while AFC East teams were making big moves in the early 90's.

 

The Redskins team that beat the Bills in XXVI...........they would have been miles over the salary cap..........and the Cowboys somehow stole Charles Haley from conference rival San Francisco.

 

Polian was especially determined to prove he was right about 265# NT Jeff Wright and FS Mark Kelso.........two major physical mismatches against NFC East teams in those SB's.

 

I don't think Beane is stubborn but winning that 1st SB when the window is THIS OPEN is critical.

 

 

I think a team like the Rams would absolutely destroy the Bills upfront…. Assuming both teams stay healthy and are in the SB, not sure how the Bills keep Josh upright for a full 4 quarters.

What a take

Well that about sums it up, don’t know what to tell ya champ. If we wanted to improve, we would have upgraded somewhere. Sorry facts bother you.

Our Oline has struggle with less. We aren’t winning a super bowl yet, so might as well prepare for it. I thought going into this year we would, but I’ve seen enough Oline play to tell you we aren’t.

Beane is just laying down feelers so he can get them in the off-season just like Diggs and Sanders. 

It’s always next year. When do we make the push? When do we finally win the super bowl. Tired of waiting.

In that potential matchup.......I actually think a healthy version of this Bills defense might be able to really shut down the Rams offense.    But it seems that the Bills have resigned themselves to Josh Allen being his own best protection this season.   He's at the height of his athletic ability right now......he's been evading pass rushers and then bowling over back 7 defenders at a rapid rate this season.........so maybe he could put up 4 TD's anyway..........but I hate seeing them expose Allen as much as they are doing this year, IMO.   Would have liked to see a physical presence added to that OL.

You can't just call another team and tell them to give you a player. 

 

Unless both teams upgrade there is no deal to be made.

I figured Beane would be making and taking calls (as all GMs should be doing this time of year) but never expected anything major to actually happen. 

It’s just sad honestly. Knowing how close we are to winning a super bowl. We are a few pieces away and it hurts knowing we aren’t getting those pieces this year.

Yes… they would just need Allen to carry the offense like he’s been doing the past year and a half….

Everyone has a price. At some point you have to be aggressive with picks.

At some point, leaning and relying on Allen to do everything is going to break Allen and he will be out a few weeks due to injury. It’s sickening and maddening at the same time.

This is kinda dramatic. We’re still a SB contender even after not making any trades.

And you're assuming it was just picks.  What about players and salaries?  Being aggressive is one thing but overpaying is another.  You can't expect them to make a deal that is going to fleece themselves.  Beane has built through the draft and FA in the off season and most of his trades have been to get rid of players for picks.

His last trade deadline trade,  a 3rd and a 7th for Kelvin Benjamin.

So how many more drafts do we need to sure up the lines? 1 , 2? What if he take me another Ford? At some point you just have to go out and get talent. 

All I know is, if Daboll insist on using Allen as a battery ram, if he gets hurt, he needs fired ASAP.

Listening to Sal Cappacio make a bunch of excuses for the Bills not making a move at the deadline.

 

Saying nobody knows what Guard was available, and at what price.

 

This team is taking a gamble with this offensive line, it’s been poor all season, and I’m to believe that nothing was available?

 

Also, we don’t have top end speed at WR, and Diggs isn’t that kind of game breaker, so our offense with have a deep cap.

This ^^^
 

For better or worse, McBeane & co feel their draft skill is better than anyone we could trade for.

The expectations are a little higher from the crew who made Diggs happen. Especially when our needs seem obvious. 

 

It would be interesting to find out who was being shopped and what they were asking for. That way we could accurately grade trades.

Ideally, none.  The talent can just be acquired in the off-season without giving up players or picks.

 

But likely at least 1 draft.  What ifs? are always a part of the draft.  You live and die by them.

Disappointed in front office this season. If you’re close to a Super Bowl contender it’s ok to overpay a little. Had they traded up in draft to get Najee Harris I feel like they would be undefeated right now and in the driver seat for division and home field. As is now I think division is gonna be a dog fight and have serious doubts about home field. At this trade deadline I felt it was imperative to upgrade OL.
