  1. Predict the 53

    Preseason Stats through 2 games... https://www.footballdb.com/teams/nfl/buffalo-bills/stats?type=pre Sills with just 2 targets and nothing to how for them. Shady averaging 1.5 ypc , with a long of 3 yards. Honestly, this is feeling like last year all over again. Really want him to show some real sign of productivity before the games get real. Three targets and 2 receptions in the passing game and one popped for 9 yards. This part of his game still looks effective. As others have pointed out, Housemoney hasn't been on. Hope he gets out of the funk quick. I like that Markus Murphy is still getting touches and delivering solid production. He did that last preseason, though, and I never felt like we utilized him enough last year. I don't have him on the 53 because Perry gets ST tackles, even though I like Murphy in the back field better than Perry. Honestly, I wouldn't even be upset if we put either Shady (if he doesn't show some burst in the preseason) or Yeldon on the trading block. Singletary has been doing a good job imitating Shady from years past. He was such a smart pick up in the draft, but is still being out-performed by Murphy in the run game! To be safe, I'd like to see Beasley's workload decreased by 25%. I get that he and Allen need to get comfortable with each other, but I think Allen is already showing he's comfortable with Beasley as a safety net. I hate that I have to put Jones in the 53, but we need size somewhere and Williams is just not quite ready to bump him at this point and Foster has seemed like he took a step backwards so far this year. At the end of last season, I had Foster ahead of Jones. TE battle is so unsettled IMO and we really need players returning from injury and learning quick. The D, though? Well our pass D is still top notch, but it feels like we still need to tighten up that run D. Still, some quality depth players are going to fall to other teams this year. Hopefully, we can stay healthy enough not to regret some of these inevitable moves. Leaving Dodson off the 53 is bothering me. I almost bumped Stanford for him. I, too, think we end up with just 2 QB's on the 53. Been there, done that in the past, so the organization is obviously not too uncomfortable with that idea. On top of that, Allen and Barkley have delivered pretty much when needed. Lastly, the right side + depth of the OL is a total mystery to me. I guess I'll start Nsekhe at RT and Ford at RG and expect to blow up the OL with Ford moving outside if we have a T get injured? Not very comfortable with that side this year...especially without penciling in a swing tackle! Frankly, I think Nsekhe is our swing tackle, but our G play is so substandard without Ford that we have to start Nsekhe. My 53: QB: Allen, Barkley RB: McCoy, Singletary, Gore, Yeldon, Perry H-B: Knox WR: Brown, Jones, Beasley, McKenzie, Foster, Roberts TE: Kroft, Smith, Sweeney LT: Dawkins LG: Spain, Teller C: Morse, Feliciano RG: Ford, Long RT: Nsekhe DE: Hughes, Love DT: Oliver, J. Phillips DT: Lotulelei, H. Phillips DE: Murphy, Lawson, D. Johnson WLB: L. Alexander, Thompson MLB: Edmunds, Stanford SLB: Milano, M. Alexander CB: White, Wallace, K. Johnson, Pitts Nickel: T. Johnson, Neal SS: Poyer, Marlowe FS: Hyde, Coleman P: Carter K: Hauschka LS: Reid
  2. Browns send Duke to Texans

    Injuries are the only issue with him, so, yeah, this could be an awesome pickup. You guys got such a great weapon in the passing game...a really nice safety valve. Wish him the best.
  3. Free Agency Thread

    Late off-season add with S Kurt Coleman coming aboard. Per Ian Rapoport... Former #Saints and #Panthers S Kurt Coleman will make just over $1M on a 1-year deal with a chance to make a maximum of $2M, source said.
  4. Bills TE Tyler Kroft breaks foot

    So, next year we try to address this...unless we got very lucky in the draft!
  5. Bills TE Tyler Kroft breaks foot

    Was totally joking about Kittle. He isn't going anywhere...top 2 TE in the league. The serious comment was the idea that I'd be OK with getting into a bidding war with the Pats to get Rudolph. Like I said before, I'd still keep Kroft and Rudolph absolutely makes us a better team.
  6. Bills TE Tyler Kroft breaks foot

    I had the same concerns after the Pats cut ASJ. How about they get Rudolph and we get Kittle?!? Yeah, I know - wishful thinking. Seriously, though...they went after ASJ and brought back Watson, which means they were willing to address that TE position with multiple players. What's to stop them from trying again? I also wonder if Bean would ever get into a bidding war with another team? Normally, I would be guarded against doing that, but if it also takes away a weapon from someone in our division... I could live with that depending on the long term, guaranteed cost.
  7. This Ain't Bills Talk 2.0 OT1

    He should have been canned years ago. His blatant bias was unprofessional.
  8. Bills TE Tyler Kroft breaks foot

    The short answer here is that Rudolph would make us a better team. Period. It wouldn't bother me to see both he and Kroft kept. Beane says he wants competition. To me that means we keep as much quality as we can. Sweeney or Croom could easily be expendable, just depends whether the FO would prefer the depth to have blocking or receiving skills.
  9. Bills sign TE Lee Smith 3 year deal.

    Seems he started catching the ball more regularly, but he always was a good blocking TE. He wasn't given a lot of opportunity here, but he was reliable when we needed him to tie someone up.
  10. Pancho Billa enters Hospice

    This is affecting me far more than I would have guessed. RIP Pancho.
  11. UDFA Signing List

    Welcome to the group! My opinion, too. Further, I suspect Josh's rushing yards actually fall as 1) I expect his passing game to improve and 2) I think the coaches will encourage him to be a little more cautious. This is not to say they won't continue to design running plays for him, but I do think he will be highly encouraged to slide more and sooner than he did last season.
  12. This Ain't Bills Talk 2.0 OT1

    Thank you, Sir!
  13. This Ain't Bills Talk 2.0 OT1

    I usually go defense, but this year I would love a Foster with a Foster's beer hiding in the background! LOL
  14. 2019 NFL Draft GDT

    Umm, a 287# ILB?!? LOL Even in a base 3-4, that's enormous at the OLB position, where 270# is considered massive. The ILB's are usually much lighter and faster to fill gaps quick and make tackles. First, Oliver would realistically have to drop 25# and we already have a blistering fast playcaller back there anyway who made good progress as a rookie. Wonder who wrote that and what in the heck they were thinking! Nah, we want that speed at the DT position to get in the face of QB's immediately after the snap. Hoping to see Oliver terrorizing Brady this year!
