I am 100% sure that a great majority of the home sideline will be made up of Buffalo Bills, or Bills affiliated employees.

 

 

If you can find a sportsbook with decent odds I'd bet that.

They could be a problem again this year.

Ryan is a better qb than Wentz on his worst day.

I think they walk away with the South.

 

With the moves Beane made this offseason our D should be much tougher to run against. I remember that horrible day last year. Taylor had well over 100 yards and 4 or 5 TD's in the blowout loss to them.  The game was basically over in the 1st half.

Taylor looked like a young Al Bundy that day.

I've never coached football but I my assumption is that the booth would be better because you can see everything.  

I wonder what the % is of coaches in the booth or sidelines.

It’s usually a team by team decision 

 

With a younger quarterback the play caller Might be on the sidelines so he could talk with his young quarterback face-to-face… Help him through adversity face-to-face

 

A more experienced quarterback usually wants his play caller upstairs… From the booth you can see plays develop better… And get a better view of how to set up plays for later on

 

The last OC Calling plays on the field for the bills iirc was Nathaniel Hackett with EJ

After a quick search it does seem like Daboll did call a few games from the field early in Josh’s career 

 

circa 2018-19

Yes I remember him screaming into Allen’s face on the bench

I fully expect the starters to play some in game 2 and a little more in game 3

I fully expect this not to occur.

I fully expect one of these scenarios to partially occur.

 

I fully expect this to be a never ending topic until Rams week starts.

Pretty sure that's what got him kicked up into the booth.

 

It was a blessing in disguise. Offense looked much better with Daboll upstairs. Hoping Dorsey continues calling plays like that as well.

"WW2 was a must win."

So Josh is the new Ike?

So Jeremy and Howard had a fun conversation yesterday sparked by the Chargers HC stated Herbert wouldn’t take a snap in the preseason nor has he ever since entering the NFL.

 

In addition, the Chargers HC said he’s not playing any of the starters who are veterans and Inam paraphrasing.  If you go on Audacy their show yesterday should still be there on demand.

 

They then as a fun exercise said who should McD sit as they already know what they have in these players.


Offense

 

Allen

Diggs

Davis

McKenzie

Morse

Dawkins

 

Defense

 

Von

Oliver

Milano

Edmunds

Basically the whole secondary except for Elam.

 

There is a small argument to play Allen a little on the 3rd game so Dorsey and Allen can get on the same page with play calling.

 

Personally, I agree except for Morse and Dawkins.  I see the value of getting our starting O Linemen gelling together for a quarter each PS game.

 

Starting RBs benefit from live action as they don’t get it in camp.  On defense there is value in Basham, Epenesa, and Rousseau getting snaps as they are still young.

 

What do you guys think about young guys and backups getting the majority of snaps, and the injury risk is too great in a year where we are hopefully in a SB run.

 

Love to hear you’re arguments.  Sure we are all excited, but I’m more excited about seeing our rookies and depth seeing what they can do in game time play.  I could care less if we lose all three games.

 

In 2020 we had no preseason and look how well we started that year.

imo, if Josh plays at all in preseason, it should be next week at home for kids day. WNY kids ❤️ their Josh!

What?  Please explain!

 

 

Hell yes.  When Josh fired that freaking laser to Ray Ray I was like, “not many humans can make that throw.”  It’s why all year long I shook my head at those who criticized Josh’s stats.  It was plain as day to anyone who wanted to see it that the kid was special.

 

Ditto. I was -well, rather adamant- proving all our naysayers here WRONG about their Josh decrees. 👍

Yeah, I definitely see how it benefits Buffalo.  But the Colts have a 37-year-old QB that they're banking on.  Yes .. he's been VERY durable throughout his career; but this is just playing with fire.

 

The only thing it can mean is that the offense isn't "clicking" yet, which is just fine by me.

Well, they (Frank) did Blow it Big Time investing their future in Wentz last year. For a while, Frank was on the Hot Seat after their season ended without a playoff game. Colts will feel this pain for years in dead money and lost picks cuz they ended up just kicking him to the curb after 1 year! 
So they GOTTA be sure with Ryan. jmo

You're sold on Matt Ryan at his current age?

 

Not to say he won't be better than wentz.

 

But he looked washed up last year to me. (I know he had a poor o line and not a ton of help for him)

 

Just looked so immobile

He can probably still be an effective game manager type of QB. Besides that offense runs thru JT anyway.
