Ok thanks for the link. It makes sense that you said about Sportrac. I will keep on checking it :)

 

Btw, I need to correct myself, I checked my previous screenshot and Emili had $2,5k dead money before. So this week added $50,666.

 

Yeah, Spotrac put a player's name one time on the Dead Money list and adds to it as needed.  Sometimes they add the $s quickly

and other times it takes a while.  As guys "elevate" they have to adjust both the dead money and their PS pay accordingly.

 

Bills only have 14 on the PS as of now.  I'm waiting to see if Emil goes back there or not.  Some kind of move needs to be made

to open a spot for Xavier too.

I am saying that he won't start because he needs experience. McD has no issue keeping a rookie on the bench.

Tre White, Josh Allen, Tremaine Edmunds, Ed Oliver, and Greg Rousseau all needed experience too. That didn’t stop them from being rookie starters.

As of the last game both Elam and Jackson played, Jackson was the better player. 

Yes, Dane Jackson in his best career game was slightly better than a rookie in the first game of their career. And since then Elam has been better than Jackson  ever was during his extended run as a starter last year.

Elam will only start when he wins the job. 

“*insert player name here* will win the job when they win the job.”

Some of y’all can keep trying to talk yourselves into Dane Jackson starting opposite Tre White in a few weeks, but I’d be shocked if it’s not Kaiir Elam. 
 

The guy has elite attributes, is a hard worker and passed his first test with flying colors.

I didn't say rookies never start under McD.

All those guys certainly didn't start because of "experience".

Tre White was better than EJ Gaines out of the gate. Maybe they were comparable? But who was going to challenge for starting CB? Shareece Wright? What a joke

Josh Allen,  The guy who was the back up to Nathan Peterman coming into the season. Josh didn't start until Peterman had an abysmal Ravens game. Josh started because the only guy in his was was Nathan Peterman. The proud owner of the worst half of NFL football in the history of the league.

Ed Oliver...started 7 games. He started when he was ready.

Edmunds was the only serviceable MLB on the roster. He was better than Ramon Humber on day one. He didn't get the not at MLB because there was a better MLB on the roster and Edmunds needed "experience"
 

Elam's extended run as a starter? It has been one game. The list of Kaiir Elam's starts is 1. @Miami. List over.

 

I am taking your stance as Elam will only start because he needs experience. Sean McDermott doesn't start players for experience. He only starts players who have earned it. It is a consistent part of his ethos in building the roster. He will not start a lesser player because of their draft status or need for experience. Full stop. 

If your take is that Elam is the better player flat out than Jackson right now, I would disagree. But it is a topic worthy of discussion. But starting because of draft status and experience (which you cited as the reasons in your OP) isn't in this teams DNA.

I don’t know if Elam is better than Jackson right now, but I also don’t know that he isn’t. 
 

His first game, in insane conditions, he balled out.  How much help schematically did he have? We don’t really know.   Just one game though…

 

He gets the chance to show its sustainable on Sunday.

Agreed, just as it was insane last week's game was at 1 p.m., for both similar and different reasons.

Exactly.  Sunday Ticket is an expensive lifesaver for a lot of us, but it’s absolutely comical that two weeks in a row, the most hype game of the NFL calendar is a 1 pm CBS game.

Buffalo should be practicing with wet balls all week, it's suppose to rain hard on Sunday

Updated rain chance was around 55%and wind around 10-15. Not as bad as first thought but could change again of course.
