This is great for us but I also ******* hate it with a fiery passion. The owners clearly do not care about anything other than wringing as much money from this cash cow as they can before it collapses.

If MLB and NBA still exist the NFL will not have a problem expanding playoffs as they have a crap ton of playoff teams and games. I am not a fan of this and it is clearly a money maker but I would have done it differently instead of going 1 bye, 2 vs 7, 3 vs 6, 4 vs 5..... you have  6 vs 7 the winner plays 3 the following week while 4 vs 5 and 1/2 both get the bye similar to the 1980s format that had 5 teams instead of 6

Hes a top talent but his forte is stretching the field. Allen cant throw deep balls and his skillset is similar to John Brown

If draft equity gets moved id rather move on up the draft board for Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb on a 5 year rookie contract

I am hoping Allen spends every spare minute working arm reeling in that cannon. It wasn't great as a rookie but it was certainly better.

In terms of skill set being similar to Brown, I agree but I also don't think that should be a reason not to go after a talented player. I look at  the Chiefs as an example. Their top 3 WR's are all speed guys and 6'2 and under and do very similar things. They just all do it really well.

That is part of the reason I think Ruggs likely goes top 15 and Jalon Reagor sneaks into round 1.

Diggs is obviously talented, but I can't imagine he fits into what McBeaneCo wants in our locker room. They will probably make some phone calls and talk to Diggs for due diligence sake, but I bet discussions don't even broach the subject of compensation. Just don't see him as a legit option.

This is pretty much how I feel. The player would be great to have. The person likely not as much. And in such a strong WR class where the consensus seems to be at least 15-20 1st to 3rd round grades exist, there isn't a need to trade assets for that contract.

I think the move is lame and a huge advantage of being the top seed to be the only team to get the 1st rd bye, at least the 2nd team had a chance at a bye to get the same rest as the 1 seed.

Bills are destined to get the 2nd seed this year now and receive no bye week.

Gonna just leave this here. Links to Beane's and McDermott's actual interviews are at the end of he article.https://buffalowdown.com/2020/02/25/buffalo-bills-takeaways-beane-mcdermott-conferences-nfl-combine/

 My take-away: They're looking for a possession receiver and feel someone is "good enough". I'm not a fan of "good enough". Strong collection of receivers this year means we could find a potential game-changer. We should be doing that and forcing opposing D's to pick their poison.
