  1. According to this mock, we take WR Jameson Williams, Alabama, and his torn ACL, in the 1st round? I will punch someone. QUESTION. Does the Bills offense currently score a lot of points? Yes. Did the Bills lose games this year because of a crappy passing game? No. It would make no sense to use a 1st round pick on a Wide Receiver. PLus, there will be some good ones in the 3rd round. (See Kyle Philips, WR, UCLA - check out his kick returning too) 59. Buffalo Bills — Sean Rhyan, OG, UCLA <----Really like this pick. I also like Darian Kinnard, OT/G, Kentucky and Zion Johnson, OG, Boston College 1st round: Just go Best Player Available BPA. Draft Bernhard Raimann, OT/G, 6'7" Central Michigan if you think he is the BPA. So what we don't need a left tackle. If the kid is going to be a future probowler OL, put him at a guard. If Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington falls to the Bills, take him. Or Kaiir Elam, CB, Florida. Just don't draft any DLinemen unless they are over 320lbs and can play 0 and 1 technique.
  2. Many an elite Offensive Coordinator, and Defensive Coordinator, turned out to be crummy head coaches. I wonder how other teams perceive Brian Daboll's ability to be a HEAD coach. And I wonder how they perceive Daboll's record as an Offensive Coordinator. Daboll was the NY Jets QBs coach in 2007-2008 crummy results Cleveland Browns OC 2009-2010 bad results Miami Dolphins OC 2011 bad results Kansas City OC 2012 bad results So how much is the Bills success the last 3 years a result of Josh Allen just being a freaking MegaTron and scrambling out of the pocket for 25 yards a pop or him throwing laser TDs, versus the plays Brian Daboll called? I think we will find out next year. If Daboll goes to the Giants and has Daniel Jones running the plays, and the Giants still fall under .500, is that the coach?
  3. The Bills have thrown a lot of draft picks and free agent money at the defensive line, and IMO, they have only done as well as reaching into a bag and pulling out random guys names. Maybe I am being a little harsh, but in 2020, we didn't have a 1st round pick, so our first pick, in the 2nd round, we used it on AJ Epenesa. He has played 2 full seasons in the NFL and some weeks he is inactive. About what you would get from a street free agent like Zimmer. Or a 5th round pick (IMO) This year you use a 1st and a 2nd round pick on the DLine. I have high hopes for Rousseau, but he is not TJ Watt or Maxx Crosby in his rookie year. Our 2nd round pick, Boogie, is inactive many weeks. We threw a lot of money at Vernon Butler and especially Star. Star worth the money the last 3 years? In 2022, if the Bills part ways with Star, we get hit with a $7.7 million DeadCap hit. Ouch. If we keep him for the season, $9.2 million Cap hit. His situation is a big dilemma. Almost better to keep him. Spend $7.7 million of your roster cap and get nothing, or spend a little more, $9.2 million and have him for rotational backup dude. Grrrrrr. <<< DRAFT WATCH Travis Jones, DT, Connecticut, 6'5" 330lbs >>> Late 2nd to bottom of the 3rd round
  4. "So, Brian are you bringing Josh Allen with you?" How much of the Bills offensive success is Josh Allen, and how much the OC? I think Josh Allen is 80% of it. If you tell me it is more, okay I can sign on to that.
  5. I don't think the announcer had accurate information. Star missed a game, for personal matters. They may have become spun into that it was a benching. Against the Patriots Star only played about 35% of the snaps, but that may have been situational. He never breaks over 50% typically anyhow. Listen I hope Star plays lights out against Kansas City, and we can sort out his future after the playoffs are over.
  6. The left side of the line looked good tonight (was that because of Master Bates?). And everyone looked good on power sweeps. Whether it was Josh on the sweep or McKenzie.
  7. The interior Bills OL could struggle By Joe Buscaglia The pass protection on the Bills’ interior offensive line has been well above average since Ryan Bates entered the lineup. Of the starting five, right guard Daryl Williams and right tackle Spencer Brown typically surrender the most pressures. However, as run blockers, Bates, Williams and center Mitch Morse have had some difficulties. That trio struggles the most against physical linebackers and a stout defensive line, and that’s what they’re up against with the Patriots. Morse surprisingly has a lot of those reps, which could make for a long day for a newfound asset to the Bills offense. Don’t bank on Devin Singletary to keep it going This is a very, very tough matchup for Singletary, the Bills’ starting running back. The Patriots are usually a good tackling defense that defends the edges well, which siphons runs up the middle. Teams have recently had success running up the middle on them, but the Bills may not have the run-blocking offensive line to take full advantage. Singletary has been excellent at reading the line and maximizing his runs. But without having elite physicality or athleticism to break a play open, it’s most likely that Singletary struggles to get it going the way he has in recent weeks.
  8. I would have rather drafted Quinn The Gut Meinerz than Boogie Basham. But then again, I think the run game starts with the Oline first, and whatever running back(s) you have are going to be that much better.
  9. Interesting that Isaiah Spiller wears #28, and CJ Spiller wore #28, although there is no relationship. Spiller is a bigger back. I like that. We need a back we can feel confident in when it is 3rd-and-1. The challenge is that Spiller won't be there at the end of the 2nd round, when we pick. On the other hand I do not see drafting him in the 1st round. Of course we could trade out of the 1st round, into the top of the 2nd round and draft him there. But that is not Beane's typically M.O. JEROME FORD and SINCERE MCCORMICK are two backs later in the draft that might be good value.
  10. How the Bears organization screws up the new coach, even before he starts on Day 1 By Adam Jahns and Kevin Fishbain The Bears were 2-0, but Matt Nagy wasn’t happy. The team was watching film following its 17-13 win over the Giants in Week 2 of the 2020 season. The offense went scoreless in the second half, but it was a 12-yard completion before halftime that had Nagy frustrated with quarterback Mitch Trubisky. Again. Trubisky had looked left, then right and then completed a pass to Cole Kmet over the middle. The second-and-7 completion was the fifth play of an 11-play scoring drive that ended with a Trubisky touchdown pass to Darnell Mooney. But Trubisky’s pass to Kmet was meant to go elsewhere. Nagy had called for a three-route concept to Trubisky’s left: Mooney ran a fade, Allen Robinson ran an out and Tarik Cohen ran a swing route. Trubisky’s reads were supposed to take him from fade to out to swing, and the Giants defender covering Robinson slipped, leaving him wide open. Instead, Trubisky went over the middle to his tight end, which Nagy pointed out. “He ripped Mitch in front of the whole team,” a source said. “Nagy proceeded to chastise Mitch for being uncoachable and not throwing it to the proper guy in front of the whole team,” a second source said. Nagy, like many coaches, often called out players. It was one of his tactics for maintaining accountability and challenging his team. In the Week 5 loss to the Raiders in London in 2019, the offensive line felt the brunt of his wrath. Defensive players, including star outside linebacker Khalil Mack, were singled out, too. It bothered some of them, especially when the defense did its part while Nagy’s offense sputtered. But the rebuke of Trubisky struck a different chord in the locker room. “It did bum Mitch out, but it also bummed out his teammates,” another source said. “Mitch was really liked by his teammates.” Backup quarterback Nick Foles, the former Super Bowl MVP, waited in the wings. And a week later, after Trubisky threw an ugly interception in the second half against the Falcons, Nagy benched him. The demotion reverberated throughout Halas Hall, and the franchise turned the page on its quarterback of the future. Again. Since George McCaskey took over as chairman of the Bears in 2011, the three most important people in his franchise — the GM, head coach and quarterback — have seldom aligned. Bad decisions compounded previous bad decisions. “Nobody gets a clean slate; nobody gets to build their own program,” said former long snapper Patrick Mannelly, the longest-tenured player in Bears franchise history. “It feels like everybody kind of has had one handcuff on whenever they got hired.” “It’s an endless cycle of inheriting the previous regime’s trash,” a former team employee said. And it’s about to happen again. The Athletic talked to more than a dozen sources close to the team about the moments over the past decade when the organization didn’t seem to know what it wanted to be — or how to fix itself. The sources were granted anonymity in exchange for candor. For the fourth time since Lovie Smith was fired, the Bears will be introducing a new head coach, and for the second time in five years, that coach will be paired with a first-round pick at quarterback who didn’t show enough as a rookie to be the definitive answer. For the third time since Angelo was fired, there will be a new GM. The Bears’ inability to get the quarterback, coach and GM combination right can be traced to the top, where McCaskey and Phillips have overseen the franchise’s most important decisions, choices that have led to this endless cycle.
  11. It is going to be cold as F*^^. Anything could happen. 10-7 game? Fumbles? A lot of punting? Wish we had Jerome Bettis in the backfield this week. Grinding out some first downs in that kinda of weather would really, really help.
  12. Agreed. Agreed. I fall off the couch and spilled my beer when the Bills didn't take my man Quinn The Gut Meinerz with the 2nd round pick, but instead took another DLinemen. Quinn was there. The Bills need(ed) strong IOLineman. Who made that decision? Beane? McDermott? McDermott asked Beane to make that pick?
  13. Looking ahead a few months.... Mario Addison is a free agent Jerry Hughes is a free agent Vernon Butler is a free agent Harrison Phillips is a free agent Efe Obada is a free agent Justin Zimmer is a free agent The Bills will want to bring some of the above back, but Shaq Lawson could slide in and replace one of them. The same is true for Boogie Basham. If he develops, he can replace a free agent. (although I would have drafted Quinn Meinerz, OL before Basham)
  14. I guess it was fake news. Or at least premature. I think Shaq is taking his time and weighing his options for next year. He doesn't need to sign immediately. He got his full pay for 2021 (17 game checks). Maybe he will sign with Buffalo, but he doesn't need to do it before this Saturday.
