  1. Evaluation of Hurney 2.0

    I think back on the Getts firing and it stings here and there. I think Getts had a good thing going. That said, I wholeheartedly applaud the things that Hurney has done since he's been in as interim GM. I think that I would have extended Norwell over Turner, if possible, but who knows if it was apples to apples. I like Norwell's stability and the fact that I can't remember him ever having occurred with a notable injury. That said, I love Trai and would like to keep both if possible. Trai's also got the versatility to play OT if needed. The Benjamin move was shocking, but it didn't piss me off. The team seemed to begrudgingly accept his fifth year option (which seems like it'll be about $12M) and he hasn't played up to it. He's consistently shown up in the offseason at a fitness level that is below what the coaching staff expects. He's been very injury prone, which you have to blame, to some extent, on the guy (in general.) The way they play the game, the way they heal, the way they prepare and keep themselves in shape, these things all come into play. Not saying that Benji's knee issues have been his fault, but it's hard to tell, and the fact remains that he has a tough time staying on the field. Big thing is that (I think) we won't have to pay him for his fifth year option. I think that the Bills will be liable for that. Unless Overthecap has their predictive figures incorrect, that'll be the case, and I think that's huge. He just didn't seem like a guy we wanted to have around anymore, we got draft capital, and (hopefully) skirted the expenditure. I give Hurney and A so far. I am cautiously optimistic. Very optimistic, very cautious. All jokes aside about the draft, I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I wish him well, for his sake, and for the team.
  2. I think that Bucky Hodges would be a stretch at this point. As a Virginia Tech fan, he was mostly a Funchess. Played spread out more often than not, at least when he was making plays. He's got a lot of ability as a receiver, but I sincerely doubt that he could ever be an every down TE (not that I think that's what you're saying.) He needs to bulk up/toughen up as a blocker and I wonder what that kind of change would do to him as an explosive receiver. I'd love to see Bucky succeed, but to this point, I think it's pretty apparent that Hodges, Isaiah Ford, and Jerod Evans all ******* themselves up ROYALLY by leaving for the draft early. VT could have legitimately been a national title contender with those three and that would have done wonders for their pedigrees, instead they ended up as roster fodder, partly due to the fact that they all came out to early.
  3. Week 3: New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers

    I'd like to see at least 4 scores that the offense earns, as in, drives that don't start within their 40 yard line. And by scores I just mean offensive drives that end in points. The offense is honestly a little worrisome with how they've played, but I really think a lot of it falls on the line not gelling (at least not yet.) We really need this to be a "get right" game. I say...27-17 Carolina.
  4. well, guys, the drama's over. also, does rap sheet think it's "butler", or did he misspell Butker's name? Kinda hoped the Butker would win out, obviously that wasn't happening after week 1. I just get queasy when I see Gano line up for a kick anymore.
  5. Week 1 GDT: Panthers @ 49ers

    Yeah, Cam's rust was real. He looks to have settled in, though. Stewart looks like the better back out there. Not that CMC looks bad by any stretch, but Stewart is really hitting it well between the tackles. Loving some of Shulda's creativity with the two, which is something I'm a litte shocked to say. Not a whole lot to complain about, honestly. Good way to start the season. Lets keep them to 3pts the rest of the way.
