Is it just me or does this seem like the most competitive camp we’ve had in a long time? 

 

Even PS players get a ring!

I obviously don't want to see Jordan Poyer miss any time at all. He's an All-Pro and a bona fide stud at safety.

That said, if -- IF -- he has to miss any time, I'm excited to see what Jaquan Johnson and Damar Hamlin can do in his place. It's possible that one or both of them are in line to be the successors at safety in the coming years. Both have made plays at times and garnered praise from the coaching staff. 
 

 

Wow, first thing I thought of too.  If Poyer is out for any significant length of time I wonder if it would be an open competition between the 2?

Physically I think Hamlin is better suited for SS.

I don't think it was a huge over reaction. You can't touch the QB. Josh spoke to him earlier in practice that he needs to pull  back. Then JP gives him a little pop after the whistle. It is not particularly egregious but it certainly disrespectful and subversive.

 

You don't touch the QB in the red jersey in practice. Before the whistle. 

Touching him after the whistle is sacrilege. 
You become hyper protective if he is a top 5 QB. 

When said top 5 QB pulls you aside to tell you you need to pull back a bit. You stay away and mouth off about how you coulda gotten him if it weren't for the jersey. 

The fact that JP did that post whistle after Josh had already talked to him is absolutely wild to me. 

Just curious... how do we know josh had already asked him to lay off? Something I missed?

 

 

 

I really don't think any of this will be a big deal, but surprising to hear. Not a smart move, but hoping Phillips is extra motivated and has a chip on his shoulder from arz, the way he had one coming from mia

Most of America are out of weight and in terrible shape. We have a terrible drinking/eating culture here. Mafia included. 

True, we have a mostly unfit population, if you are around my age, 64, there were very few fat people to be seen out and about when we were growing up, nowadays many children, teens, young  and middle age adults, are to me shockingly overweight and unfit, yet we all know the solution, it is the balance of calories in calories out, all food/drink calories, regardless of origin, not burned by being alive or through activity, are stored in one’s body as fat, yet folk love to pretend otherwise…,  being reasonably active/fit, and eating a reasonably good diet is the only way to live an active life into one’s inevitable old age…

You know something Don it's a little strange how some fans see the camp/preseason games.

We constantly hear how no one wants starters to play the preseason BUT everyone freaks out when players are kept out of

camp practices with minor injuries.  It seems to me missing some time and resting these guys to get 100% is the smart thing.

 

If the O-Line isn't fielding the starters until preseason games they can always get snaps with Keenum at QB.

 

This seems to happen every camp under McDermott.  Bills are known for holding these guys out and being overly cautious early in the year.  


I love that you called him Don :lol:

He was way better than anything Spencer Brown or Darryl Williams offered last season. 


Darryl Williams I’ll give you, but Spencer Brown is a damn fine player.

There were reports that earlier in practice JP had made contact with Keenum and Josh pulled him aside and told him to back off.

 

More than anything I think this is a tough roster to make at the moment, so low end guys like Phillips show up with much more stress than usual.

Add in the fact there is a pizza wings, sub shop on every corner in WNY, A few generations now have lived this reality.

When I was growing up it was a large and small pizza a bucket of wings almost every weekend.

Then if I went to B-Day party or Boy scouts or any other event the odds are there was going to be pizza and wings there.

Add in that I would go out for Burgers and fries often in between I'm lucky I'm just a type 2 diabetic.

I have refined my diet quite well since being diagnosed, but I should of seen it coming. 3 of my 4 Grandparents were type 2 diabetics who had complications. I did learn a lot of what not to do watching them.

Too many carbs with saturated fats is a killer, and that's what the American / Western Diet is. Pizza and Wings, Burgers and Fries etc...

I agree 100%, don’t put anything extra on the guy in red, however, did you see the “hit” from the second angle? The first angle wasn’t as clear, so I couldn’t see how much of a shoulder Jordan gave him, but the 2nd angle showed a “much ado about nothing,” tap, even for the guy in red.

Saffold has been banged up, struggles in pass protection, and has fallen off a bit the past couple years so I was hoping for someone younger and better to really solidify the unit inside….like an Andrew Norwell and I was hoping for better competition at RT than Quessenberry who sucked in pass protection last season when he played.… either way, I would’ve prioritized it more than the defensive line. A strong offensive line and keeping Josh upright is more imperative to their success than is a strong 8 man defensive line rotation IMO. 
 

Peters is still out there, maybe they bring him in if things turn bad to start the season and he’s still available and willing. 

The results of last playoff game show different. Josh was upright and succeeding, defense on the other hand…not so much getting home to Pat.
