  • How long have you been a Buffalo fan?
  1. I really like this kid! Would LOVE to have him on the Bills. Lot's of raw talent to be developed.
  2. Thanks Hip! I guess I jumped to a conclusion, based on all the talk around here lately.
  3. What the HELL is going on here? Every thread (except this one) is leading me to gateway errors. Is the Range shutting down?
  4. Super Bowl Years? :-) I came on during the Jauron years, and the board wasn't pristine back then, and it certainly wasn't without problems and arguments, but it had a lot more character (and characters). Some were villains. Some were funny. Some were t-rolls but overall, I remember it being a lot more fun and entertaining. The Rick thing was sad.
  5. I meant that it's cool to see him having to eat crow. I probably should have clarified that.
  6. I don't know that he should leave, or if he's fully at fault for the decline of this board, but the fact remains that this place is a far cry from what it was a few years ago. It's really not as enjoyable as it once was. These days, it seems like the overwhelming theme is negativity for negativity's sake. It's sad, really. I used to love being here. Now it's more of a habit to just check in, but now I rarely engage.
  7. Yup! I've been pleased with his progress. Never expected him to be Jerry Rice in year 2, but I do believe he can and will be a solid #1 in a year or two.
  8. I'm not sure, but doesn't this probably have something to do with potential comp picks? I'd have to look it up, but my (admittedly vague) understanding is that cutting him would mean no comp pick, whereas keeping him might result in a comp pick somehow. Now... whether or not a comp pick is worth it is debatable, but I'm guessing that the thinking is that a potential "something" is better than a definite nothing since at this point no one would give the Bills crap for KB. I could be completely wrong, though.
  9. That was almost exactly what I was gonna say. The "hack" part refers to the tone and writing etc... Anyone of us can write the way he does, and condescend to readers etc... I mean.. we rangers are all a bunch of hacks for the most part (myself included), but we are not journalists. You can cover bad teams and address weaknesses and faults without being rude and coming off as a jilted fan. Sully seems incapable of doing that. He is ultimately negative and a poor read. Brings no nuance or insight to his coverage.
