  1. Kevin Patullo's resume: http://www.titansonline.com/team/coaches/Patullo_Kevin/68488658-8cc6-46d8-b87f-b4782e4e8e70
  2. Our QB coach is Kevin Patullo who got his start under Gailey up in BUF. So he's going to be well versed in what Gailey is going to implement. He's a young guy so I don't know what his rep in the league is
  3. Petty is basically a lump of clay that has to be shaped into an NFL QB. Thankfully we have a front office & coaching staff that knows this and has a specific plan to develop him. Fans that stupidly call for him to play this year unknowingly want him to fail because he's not ready
  4. Sounds very familiar doesn't it??? Guess Ryan was too busy giving an interview, getting his truck painted, getting a tattoo or eating wings with Thurman Thomas to meet with his potential draft picks. And for those Ryan apologists, remember BUF GM (Whaley) was going to be fired if Marrone stayed so Ryan is driving that organization: http://espn.go.com/blog/buffalo-bills/post/_/id/18643/bills-miss-the-mark-with-darby-williams-selections ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- In what was supposed to be a cut-and-dried 2015 draft for a team without first- and fourth-round picks, the Buffalo Bills opened themselves up to scrutiny after selecting a pair of players -- running back Karlos Williams and cornerback Ronald Darby -- with character concerns. At the very least, Williams' and Darby's judgment -- and the decision by the Bills to add both players to their team -- should be questioned after each was connected to a pair of off-field incidents during his career at Florida State. (Neither player was arrested or charged.) The most troubling case was a domestic assault allegation made last year by the pregnant ex-girlfriend of Williams, the Bills' fifth-round pick. The woman, who had another child by Williams, posted photos of her bruises on Facebook but later told police she did not want to press charges, ending the investigation. At a time when there is heightened sensitivity to domestic violence allegations against NFL players, the Bills took a risk by selecting Williams -- a player they didn't even need, considering their depth at running back. And the Bills didn't handle the situation smoothly when speaking about the pick afterward. General manager Doug Whaley said the Bills investigated Williams and felt comfortable with his past. Asked generally about which infractions would cause him to take a player off his draft board, Whaley singled out stealing from a teammate. "To me that is stealing from your family and that to me is just not something I can deal with for what we're doing," he said Saturday. "We're trying to build a team and a family, and that locker room is sacred. And for that, I have a hard time with. Obviously there are some other things that if they're guilty for murder and all that stuff, of course, but the indiscretions we're talking about, yes that would be it." What was left unsaid is whether Whaley considers domestic violence part of "all that stuff," like murder, or something less serious, perhaps even less grave than stealing from a teammate. Darby, the Bills' second-round pick, was a witness in a rape investigation that focused on former Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston. Darby wasn't charged or disciplined by the school, but there are questions about what he saw and what, if anything, Darby did to stop the encounter between Winston and his alleged victim. In a separate incident, Darby fled the scene of a hit-and-run along with teammate P.J. Williams, the driver of the vehicle involved. Upon arriving at the Bills' facility Saturday, Darby made a head-scratching comment when asked about his off-field issues and what he had to prove to teams. "I didn't have to do anything at all. I was around a lot of stuff of course, but you can't control what you're around," he said. "But I was never the one that was getting in trouble or anything like that, but there was nothing for me to do." Of course, Darby can control who and what he is around; in fact, that is the message that most teams deliver to their young players. News conferences when players first join a team can provide some of their most organic thoughts -- teams have yet to coach players up on certain issues and how certain answers will be perceived by the public -- and in this case Darby didn't project the sense of responsibility you want from a young player. There also are questions about how much homework the Bills did on Darby. He said he met with the Bills at the combine and "had a few words exchanged on pro day," adding, "That's about it, really." Combine interviews last 15 minutes, which hardly seems like enough time for the Bills to gauge Darby's character face-to-face. Darby said he didn't even meet coach Rex Ryan until arriving at the team's facility Saturday. Outside of Darby and Williams, the Bills added some promising young players with their other four selections in the draft. Guard John Miller (third round) and tight end Nick O'Leary (sixth round) both could contribute this season, and linebacker Tony Steward (sixth round) and wide receiver Dezmin Lewis (seventh round) are developmental prospects who could earn spots on the back end of the 53-man roster or on the practice squad. Yet the questionable selections of Darby and especially Williams will overshadow the other work the Bills did in this draft. There weren't pressing needs at either cornerback or running back, so the Bills will be wedging two players of questionable character onto their depth chart -- and into a locker room that already includes Richie Incognito, made infamous by the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal of 2013. NFL fans have appropriately expressed concern about the way the league has handled cases of domestic violence and other serious off-field allegations. Most teams -- some of which might have previously treated such incidents as comparable to a failed drug test or another lesser offense -- have been more careful about which players they allow on their teams and how they discuss those issues with the public. The Bills, however, seem a step behind the times.
  5. If he doesn't get picked up as a UDFA how petrified must the whole league be???
  6. I'm surprised at how many UDFA's we're signing. Especially on the defensive side of the ball because I don't see many spots open
  7. You're too fast I just posted the same thing
  8. Remember our new Pro Personnel director (Brian Heimerdinger) came from STL. So I'm sure he had a lot of input on getting Stacy
  9. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Marshall_%28American_football%29
  10. Steve Marshall, he's an OLine "lifer" http://www.newyorkjets.com/team/coaches/steve-marshall/d2f70d6d-76de-41f2-9d3b-ecb8a3b0b029
  11. I'm convinced that a couple of the guards on our roster are going to be kicked out to LT and be groomed to be Brick's replacement. I think Dozier will be one and now maybe Harrison
  12. Our fifth round pick: http://www.nfl.com/draft/2015/profiles/jarvis-harrison?id=2552341 Seems to be a very athletic combo OLinemen who needs to bring it every play
  13. Bowles said in one of his press conferences we would get a 4th QB, well here he is. I like what I saw of him at Baylor and he fits the spread type of offense Gailey will be implementing. The best thing about the pick is we will sit him for at least a year and allow him to learn how to be an NFL QB. Something that was totally lost on our former coach
  14. Mauldin's life shows tremendous character and strength: http://mmqb.si.com/2...aft-louisville/ Glad he made it!!! Too many soft people in this world don't know real hardship

  16. Posey is a back end of the roster WR: http://espn.go.com/nfl/player/stats/_/id/14969/devier-posey Hasn't done anything in his career
  17. Mike Wilkening @mikewilkening · 3m3 minutes ago Jets-Texans trade: Texans get 70th pick (R3). Jets get DeVier Posey, 82nd pick (Round 3), 152 pick (Round 5) & a 7th-rounder.
  18. I've been thinking about that also because Harold isn't the only attractive LB left on the board: Benardrick McKinney Eric Kendricks are both available also. I would accept that they were the BPA, but I hope the next two picks address two of the following positions OT, WR, RB
  19. I just don't see it. If Maccagnan was going to trade Wilkerson it should have been last night right after we took Williams. That way you would've had first round picks still available to pick up. There's no way I want a #2 for Wilkerson
  20. - One of Bowles key traits as DC in ARZ was deploying his strongest position group (secondary) in non-traditional ways. That's how he came up with using multiple safeties as LB's. With our strongest position groups now being DLine and the secondary I could see him coming up with formations like a 5-2-4 base, a 5-1-5 nickel and a 5-0-6 dime. By doing that Bowles can force the opponents OLine into 1 on 1 matchups with the likes of Wilkerson, Richardson, Coples, Harrison and Williams. That's a BIG win for us - There's a ton of interesting talent still left on the board: http://www.nfl.com/draft/2015/tracker/by-round#dt-tabs:dt-by-position It will be interesting to see if we consider Lael Collins and Randy Gregory in the second round - With the amount of talent still left I won't be shocked if we trade down a few spots and pick up some extra picks in the 3rd & 4th rounds - Below is a link to an article about Williams "football intelligence" it's too long to post: http://mmqb.si.com/2015/03/25/leonard-williams-usc-nfl-draft/
  21. Read this article to get a sense of how football intelligent Williams is: http://mmqb.si.com/2015/03/25/leonard-williams-usc-nfl-draft/
  22. Simple question, what did you think when Idzik drafted Richardson in 2013??? Well Williams was a more highly rated prospect than Richardson was. Williams and maybe Cooper were the safest picks in this draft, you basically can "plug and play" both of them. He's a beast and he's not 21 yet, his maturity and knowledge of the nuances of DLine play is far above his age
  23. A couple more: dom cosentino @domcosentino · 10 minutes ago Geno completes a front-corner TD to a leaping Marshall over Revis, who barely mistimed his jump. Huge reaction from players and coaches. dom cosentino @domcosentino · 8 minutes ago Revis' competitiveness on full display in April. Wanted Marshall flagged for grabbing his jersey on an earlier completion on him.
