  1. I wonder how much those shares of EJ Manuel stock are worth now.... https://www.fool.com/investing/general/2014/02/25/should-you-invest-in-ej-manuel-fantexs-next-public.aspx
  2. Well we certainly aren't swimming in available cash, but it's true that we have a little wiggle room. The problem is that we have sooooo many holes to fill on this team. Expect other cap casualties. As for helping our cap, you are correct in that there is little immediate relief, but moreso longterm.
  3. This trade was not totally about the player, effort, or talent. It was about getting out from under a ridiculous $100 million contract for a guy who couldn't (wouldn't) stay on the field. It was an escape from cap hell...cutting losses now. You can debate whether or not this move was wise, but don't delude yourself into thinking that this move wasn't mostly about the cap.
  4. Yes, I too endorse this plan with the possible exception of WR -- we need to address the talent pool either through the draft or through FA
  5. So what have we learned over the past few years? Never give large amounts of money to big chubby guys. Dareus was on the verge of becoming Haynesworth 2.0. And let's see what happens once the novelty wears off in Jacksonville. Perhaps he'll continue to be a game-changer, perhaps not.
  6. This isn't a binary problem...it's not a question of whether Tyrod sucks or Dennison sucks. Perhaps they are both extremely mediocre. Can you get to the playoffs with a QB like Tyrod? Yes, history has shown that you can. But if your life depended on it, I'm guessing no one here would follow the model of having a QB like Tyrod take you to the promised land. Right now, Tyrod is throwing to some pretty underwhelming receivers. That being said, some of the receivers who were here during his tenure are now elsewhere and are now thriving. Could there be a connection? Marquise "freaking" Goodwin is going to be a 1,000 yard receiver this year. Robert Woods (with all apologies to Kupp) has been the Rams' best receiver, and if he hadn't been injured for a couple of games, Wood would have certainly been over 1,000 yards Sammy has been average with the Rams, but I think that's more about him than the QB situation. As for Dennison, I remember that Rex Ryan was villified for taking a top notch defense and ruining it by imposing his system upon the team. Dennison certainly deserves the same harsh criticism for his decision to run a zone blocking scheme in the run game. Our number one rushing attack has been throttled. As for Tyrod, Dennison tried to make him something that he wasn't, and after it became apparent that Tyrod was not going to succeed under that system, he made slight adjustments. The results even then were underwhelming. Tyrod can make plays, can be spectacular, and won't turn over the ball...the problem is that he can't consistently be productive. Time to give them both a one-way ticket out of town.
  7. I think Tom Coughlin deserves a fair chunk of the praise. Kudos for Marrone for figuring out that Bortles is a MUCH better QB when he's not playing from behind.
  8. The pessimist in me is waiting for the wheels to fall off the season (in typical Bills fashion) if we lose to the Saints. That is quite possible too... good QB and a very hot team playing good D
  9. You being right about this and you being crazy are mutually exclusive considerations.
  10. Ahh! Someone who gets it! How refreshing! :rockon:
  11. I can see that the concept of hyperbole (and most likely subtlety) is beyond you. I'll remember to use simple words and straight-forward concepts with you moving forward. All I meant to imply was that I was having flashbacks to Marcus Easley when I first heard of Zay's injury.
  12. Marcus Easley was considered to be a sleeper WR coming out of UConn. There were a lot of high hopes for him. Dude got injured almost immediately, then injured repeatedly throughout his career. He was a warrior, but was never able to amount to anything.
  13. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are cut from the same cloth -- both are members of the top 10% who are only interested in serving themselves and their rich cronies who put and keep them in office. Both only care about the middle class on some esoteric, symbolic level. They will support any initiative that creates more opportunity for them, or that minimally doesn't hurt their interests or those of their funders while helping the less fortunate.
