  1. Who do the Bills keep between Milano and Dawkins?

    Gotta go with Dawkins here. Milano fits the defense like a glove, and I'm hoping we keep him, but good tackles are so hard to come by. I think Dawkins gets underrated round these parts. I think he's a pretty good starting tackle in this league. We can do way worse, and many teams have way worse.
  2. Last Years FA Studs and Duds

    For Buffalo: John Brown, Cole Beasley, Spain, Nsekhe, Morse, and Roberts were all good signings. Brown became a 1000 yard receiver again. Beasley is a good slot receiver. Spain played really well at guard. When Nsekhe got injured the pass protection got noticeably worse. Morse continues to be a good center. Robert was a beastly kick/punt returner. Kroft, Yeldon, & Smith didn't pan out. Kroft was injured all year, but showed some potential. Yeldon fumbled way too often, and barely saw the field because of it. Smith is just straight up trash. Feliciano started off hot, but simmered down as the season went on. Still, I think he'll be a good guard going forward.
  3. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Nope, just my personal experience. I quote that from a post I made on another forum. I'm assuming that being outside will impact the spread, but I don't think there's been any concrete evidence to support this theory yet. I believe if people are socially distancing, then it's fine, but if there's a group of people standing in an area for a few minutes, then it may have the ability to spread effectively. Of course- heat and humidity may have a stronger enough impact to make the spread minimal.
  4. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Our Nursing Director is hopeful we'll be entering phase 2 soon. Really proud of the legislature, doctors, nurses, and all of the medical staff who have been on the front lines here in Rochester. They've done a great job so far. Also, I notice a ton of people wearing masks indoors, so kudos to the community, too, even if they are wearing them wrong some times at least they're showing the awareness to wear them. Unfortunately people are being neglectful outside. Really hoping heat and humidity impacts the spread of this nasty little bastard.
  5. The Jets and Jamal Adams

    Funny thing is i hate the Jets, but i do believe their defense is legit. They lack edge rushers, but have a good DC and some studs in Mosley and Adams. They closed out the year really strong even if it was against mediocre offenses. Also, Im expecting they will be a top-10 unit with Mosley back and a more healthy line-up. I aint making no guarantees. Just a prediction.

    Would love for Buffalo to pick him up on the cheap, but doubt it happens. We haven't been linked to him at all.
  7. The Jets and Jamal Adams

    Jamal Adams is a BEAST. If he does get traded, there won't be a player coming back of equal value. It'd likely be a 'futures' type of package. The Jets need to do everything in their power to convince him to stay. They need to start bringing in a winning culture, and trading Jamal Adams would have a huge negative impact on a defense that already lacks players that can get to the QB. It'd bring that defense from top-10 to middle of the road. He's that type of player. If I'm Douglas, I'm playing hardball regarding a trade. If someone makes an offer that is undeniable, then do it. Similar to the Tunsil trade for Miami. On the other hand, I'd be absolutely willing to ante up and pay the man. I understand the concern over next year's cap, but aren't the Jets in good shape for next year's cap? There are few players worthy of anteing up and overpaying for...Jamal Adams is one of them. There is the chance he just doesn't want to be a Jet. In that case, you trade him for the best offer before the season.
  8. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Hmm...according to this article they were taken in late April. https://www.npr.org/2020/05/25/861923548/stockholm-wont-reach-herd-immunity-in-may-sweden-s-chief-epidemiologist-says
  9. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Apparently it was internally peer-reviewed, and apparently the two authors haven't ever published anything worth while, so it should be taken with a grain of salt!
  10. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Over 80% of coronavirus patients on cruise ship had no symptoms, study says https://www.cnbc.com/2020/05/27/over-80percent-of-coronavirus-patients-on-cruise-ship-had-no-symptoms-study-says.html Damn, this study has been peer-reviewed, too. I didnt read the actual study( only the article). Note that the researchers did clarify there were false negatives...
  11. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    It's important to note those numbers were from the middle-later April. Im not sure what the percentage is now. Regardless, extremely risky gamble to take when we have little knowledge of the virus. Although... going back to the Spanish flu there were a few areas that werent nearly as hard hit by a second wave since a much higher percentage of the population had developed immunity. It's going to be interesting to see what happens in the fall.
  12. Jets sign QB Joe Flacco (One year, $1.5 M)

    Eh...good teams don't lose to JAX, Miami and Cincy, then barely beat the 2nd and 3rd stringers of Buffalo. This all occurred with Darnold at the helm.
  13. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Here's the Italian article translated. Some really interesting stuff. From deepL: A variant of the virus Sars-CoV-2 "extremely less powerful" was isolated in Brescia in the Microbiology laboratory of Asst Spedali Civili, directed by the President of the Italian Society of Virology (Siv-Isv) Arnaldo Caruso. "While the viral strains that we have been accustomed to seeing in recent months, which we have isolated and sequenced, are biological bombs capable of exterminating target cells in 2-3 days - explained the expert at Adnkronos -, this to start attacking them takes at least 6 days": twice as long. The news will be the subject of scientific publication, but Caruso wants to anticipate it "to launch a message of hope. As a virologist these more attenuated viral variants should become the future of the probable evolution of Covid-19" (here the interview with Corriere). "It is so true that he is losing strength - adds Caruso - that every day we see positive nose-pharyngeal swabs no longer strong, but weak". The molecular evidence of "very light, almost inapparent infections. We see the virus in very, very small doses". "What has happened, however, is that while all these swabs with low viral load have been coming in lately, we have had one with a very high load and we were amazed". A surprise considering that "this subject was completely asymptomatic. So we went to isolate the virus, discovering that in culture it was extremely weaker than the previous ones". That is, by putting him in vitro with good cells to attack, "he couldn't even kill them all". On the contrary, even only "to start attacking them, it needed at least 6 days", against the "48-72 hours" sufficient to the classical strains to finish all the available cells. "We still do not know if and how much this variant circulates, nor if it is genetically different from the others. But we can say that something is going on." Which variant will survive? "The winning virus is the one that adapts the most and replicates the cell that hosts it. This is a phenomenon we call viral fitness. The certainty that the attenuated variants can be the winning and more widespread ones tomorrow will be given us by studies on viruses that will support the next possible epidemics", he explained to Corriere. Caruso is therefore optimistic looking at the summer: "The fact that new cases of SARS-CoV-2 infection are decreasing and characterized by less important symptoms makes me moderately positive for the summer. However, we must not let our guard down. We continue to wear masks, keep our distance and try to gradually return to a normal life responsible to ourselves and others. Let us not forget that if the virus reaches weak individuals it can still do serious damage. It will be different in autumn and winter: there we must be ready to understand in time when and what kind of SARS-CoV-2 will circulate to take the necessary measures to prevent and combat the infection, so as to avoid what we have already experienced". End/ ...Sounds eerily similar to the flu seasons...

    Definitely think you got a keeper in Douglas, which ticks me off as a Bills fan!
  15. Coronavirus (COVID-19) - 3rd try

    Italian Virologist Arnoldo Caruso observed a much weaker strain in an Asymptomatic patient with a high viral load. The source is in Italian, but here's the Reddit thread: Obviously I'll take this with a grain of salt. There's not even a scientific paper yet, though one is supposedly on the way. Still, mildly interesting stuff.
