I think fans on these boards have been calling it straight. they critisize when he has horrible games and show love for him in games he does well.

 

In my opinion, his last two games were his most complete games in the NFL. Just cause fans call it as it is does not mean we have to apologize or eat crow.

Exactly right. It is possible that he lacked luster before and he has improved a lot as a player. Both things can be true especially when you consider how young he entered the league.

 

I dont think anyone had "edmunds on fire to start season" on their bingo card but here we are!

I’m not  saying Edmunds is or will be better than Milano…. But, after watching 2 games this season, he looks improved.  If he continues to improve, there’s a chance he becomes a better player than Milano.  

I have been maintaining all along in podcasts and on these forums that when your line can't maintain positions for your LB's to hit gaps, it makes LB's look really bad... like they hit the wrong gap... like they making bad reads. Now that we have a complete Defensive line, Edmunds looks 1000% better. imagine that.

 

My area I have been a critic of him is in pass defense situations and Edmunds is doing better in that area as well. 

 

ALL of this is the Von Miller effect.

Oh he's definitely stepping up his game so far this season.  No doubt, but you tend to see that alot during contract years. I'm going to root for him this season and hopefully he's wearing some "bling" with 52 other guys.  But I think there's little or no chance he's here next year.  Von is basically making everyone look better.

Could it be that better D line play is improving Edmonds game? 

 

I think it's improving everyone's game.  But Edmunds does stuff a lot of guys just can't do.  He was just flying around all night.

 

I'll get ridiculed a bit for this - but the way he played tonight reminded me of Polamalu in his prime.

he broke his team mates neck in half bc hes slow and lacks instincts

 

ALSO , go watch his stellar play on henry TD on goal line. pathetic 

I am sure this statement is going to take over the thread which it should because it is a "pathetic" low blow. He had no intentions in hurting D Jack and the guy was everywhere this game. They scored that TD because they called the right play, doubled our weak DT(likely a bad Defensive play call), which was thrown back into the endzone, and no one would have been able to stop that play from the LB position. Edmunds has not been behind a dominant front 4 to allow him to make plays, and now that he does, he has no excuse, and he is making plays! He is a very good LB and we need to keep him. End of story.

There is no way on God's green earth that the Bills will re-up Tremaine. Especially at 13-14/yr. Yes he probably had his best game tonight as a Bill. A nice TFL, tipped ball for INT and an uncontested sack. His hit on Dane was unfortunate but we've seen him do that 100x. Kinda late getting to  a tackle that had already been made.  No one will ever be able to convince me that Edmunds is better than Milano. But I will tip my hat to 49 and hope he continues to ball out, get himself a ring and the bag.

There are only a couple LBs in the NFL anyone could say is better than Milano. He doesn't have to be better than him to re-up, but he is going to flash a ton this year behind this front 4. This will be a big year for him.

The way the pieces fit together in this defense are absolutely scary. This could be one of the great defenses in NFL history.

 

Bills allowing 215 yards a game, which is surprisingly 2nd to the 49ers who are allowing 210 yards a game...I think our competition has been a little tougher tho...

He has played well. The spear on Dane is unfortunate but it happens. Nothing he’s done has convinced me on a extension though. 

Bills like to develop their draft picks and keep those players. He's not an instinctive playmaker, but I think the Bills coaches see him as a stabilizing component on defense.

You should be out. Your initial post was embarrassing and whatever your personal opinions are about Edmunds are uncalled for IMO.

Why should he “:be out” and what does that mean?  Isn’t this an opinion board or are only the things you say or deem to be facts?  Let’s just silence everyone with a diff opinion , why ever listen or try to learn or see a diff point of view, you are too smart for that right!?  😀. I love people who can say whatever they want but another’s opinion was “ embarrassing “.   Closed mindedness is embarrassing and education usually can help.  
The only real judgement comes when edmunds is resigned or not; so far they have found new contracts for  true stars like Josh and Milano and Von.  Edmunds got the 5 th year offer so that tells me the real decision makers , Beane and Mcd , needed to see more.  Pretty amazing for the big star LB you must think he is.  It’s his 5 th year , about time he shows something.  Give me the LB of the Cowboys from penn state as an example of a true impact LB , or look no further than Milano. Still , this is a message , opinion based forum , open up your mind a little as words on a screen can’t hurt you.  Lol. 🍸

Yes he has had a good two weeks.  He had a really good game today.  A lot of people are going to blame him for the Dane injury.  I did at first too.  The truth is though... its because he was playing hard like he should be. The game is faster on the field than we see it on TV or even live.  He commited that hit before the player was down.  Just an unlucky situation.

Anybody that blames Edmunds for that injury is moronic.

So what caused the injury then, was it non contact? I'm not saying it happened on purpose but one dudes head spearing into another dudes head 100% made some kind of injury happen.
