Honestly I don’t think they risk fines/penalties by faking injuries to hang on to UDFA players who flashed vs 3rd and 4th string players. Williams scored 2 TDs vs the Miami Dolphins who were fighting for their playoff lives and no one poached him from the squad. He looked good in PS too. I can’t even remember his first name. Also, faking injuries to stash a player also results in no practice time, which a player in those stages desperately need. I don’t think that actually happens in the NFL.

Lol see Stevenson, Marquez 😆😆

I think the only way Blackshear makes the team is if he becomes the kick return specialist or something like that.  Barring that there is just no room.  He might be a trade candadite.  I don't think he would sneak on the practice squad though.  He is playing well enough that some team would claim him on waivers (please not the Pats.)

Bills coach Sean McDermott said the rookie has impressed so far.

“He’s got great juice,” McDermott said. “You can just feel him when he’s out there. You feel the burst, whether it’s in the return game or when he’s carrying the ball on offense or catching the ball out of the backfield. He plays his role.”

 

He has the potential to be a very special player.  I like Singeltary & Moss as good, steady RB's.  But they don't have super-star potential.  Neither of them has showed that in their careers with the Bills.

 

Blackshear has that potential!


love your stupid threads. Keep them coming

I'm on Blackshear's jock big time.  But he is not unseating Motor, Moss, Cook, or Gilliam, they are stone cold locks (Gilliam, IMNSHO, is the new Pat DiMarco - he's got pictures).  That means unless Blackshear shows uncanny abilities as a gunner, he's not unseating Formosa.  McChoke will not carry 6 RB's (barring mental infirmity), so Blackshear is PS at best.  Which sucks, he's got more heart and guts than most of this roster.  I want this guy on my team, just don't know how it's gonna happen.  BlacksHEART!

I wanna know why Moss is an absolute lock I don’t think I agree with that his injuries over the last two years I would think would put him on the bubble I actually think it would make him a great trade candidate because he is a no-name with a very affordable contract

It's way too early to use the word "superstar ".

Singletary, Cook, Moss, Gilliam. I think Gilliam (and Taiwan) make it for their unique (non-pure-rb) talents. 

 

In that case, you have to trade Moss to have Blackshear on the 53. Possible, but unlikely. 

 

IR candidate? 

I like that Cook and Johnson are getting reps on kick returns. Blackshear is impressive, and Taiwan is what,34? I don't see them keeping on the 53.

He's had a really nice camp, no doubt.  But still, as counterintuitive as it feels, it is no longer necessary or productive to think like 2013 Bills fans.  You don't go to or win Super Bowls by entertaining a bad case of FOMO over fringe roster players.  If he is picked up by the Dolphins, Pats or Chiefs, so be it and so what?  Do you really think that Frazier will stop game planning around Tyreek Hill, Damien Harris or Travis Kelce and lose sleep over Raheem Blackshear?  I don't.  Let any of them try to beat this defense with Blackshear.  That will work out quite well at One Bills Drive.  Enjoy the penthouse view while we are here.  All who pass through do not get to stay...

He's made a good case for himself to this point.  At the same time,  it seems like there's always one of these guys in preseason and rarely do they make it. This year is going to be especially difficult and most likely,  I think he ends up on the practice squad.
