  1. With the caveat that it's still super early and more reps are needed to draw more accurate conclusions... - Justin Fields looked good. It's still baffling to me that he was the 4th quarterback selected after some of the success he had in college against some quality opponents. His physical talent is obvious, and the pro game did not look too big for him. - Trey Lance looked raw but displayed on two different throws the talent and playmaking ability that made Shanahan sell the farm to move up for him. - Trevor Lawrence had a ho-hum day, but he had a really pretty 3rd-and-long con
  2. Thanks. I've definitely seen some douchey, gloating behavior from Bills fans on social media and various forums at times over the past couple years. I don't like it. It reminds me of Pats fans -- their team was terrible for years, and when they finally got good, rather than being humble from being down so long, the fans turned into insufferable, arrogant monsters. I kind of understand it a LITTLE BIT with Bills fans, particularly because people were talking SO MUCH sh*t about Allen from the moment he was drafted. It's hard not to dunk on the Allen haters a little bit, because they we
  3. Hi there. Clearly, my username and avatar point out that I'm a Bills fan. Duh. My join date was August, 2019, prior to Allen being worth a damn. I joined because I thought it would be fun and interesting to track the side-by-side development of Josh Allen and Sam Darnold. I really liked Darnold coming out, I had read that he and Allen were great friends, and I assumed they'd be facing off for AFC East supremacy for the next decade+. I don't come here to gloat or troll or extoll the virtues of the mighty Buffalo Bills. My team hasn't won a championship since 1965 and, prior
  4. The "Dropped interceptions" stat that I see getting cited a lot lately comes form Cian Fahey, noted moron. Ya know who had 19 "dropped interceptions" in 2020, according to Cian? Patrick Mahomes. What a loser! *edit* I see someone already pointed this out. Whoops. The other thing that makes me laugh every time a QB signs a mega-deal is the people shouting "they'll be cap strapped! Good luck winning now!". Like....what other option do teams have? Are they just supposed to NOT re-sign their franchise QBs? I agree that the "rookie QB contract window" is a legitimate thing and all, b
  5. Fair enough. PFF's QB rankings have never been worth a damn, frankly. Ahead of the 2018 draft, they had the QB class ranked in this order: Baker Mayfield Sam Darnold Josh Rosen Lamar Jackson Mason Rudolph Josh Allen So....yeah. Not sure where their "advanced analytics" failed them on that one. You'd think such an elite brain trust of stats nerds could've seen Lamar Jackson coming, or could've projected Josh Allen higher than Mason freaking Rudolph.
  6. Ranking 32 starting QBs when several of them have never played a down in the NFL is definitely a silly exercise. That said, if they're going to do it, it seems only reasonable to rank the rookies toward the bottom of the list. What ranking do people feel that Wilson should have gotten instead?
  7. I just wanted to pop in to say that I'm a huge fan of the Jets draft so far this year. Vera-Tucker and Moore are studs. You got Jamien Sherwood AND Hamsah Nasirildeen, both of whom I liked as big nickel candidates. And to top it off, you took every Michael Carter that's ever lived. Great draft for Douglas and co. **Puts on troll hat**. It's weird to see the Jets making well thought out, competent, logical draft choices and getting great value in each round. I hate it.
  8. Thanks for this. For what it's worth, I am also of the opinion that Justin Fields is QB2. He has done it for longer, done it more consistently, and done it against better competition than Wilson. He scored 51 TDs to just 3 INTs in 2019. He threw 6 TDs against Clemson in the Sugar Bowl. That's a big time performance against legit competition in a big time moment. I feel that Fields is being overlooked/overthought in the same way that Deshaun Watson and Lamar Jackson were, which is to say that all three men proved themselves against legitimate competition in big moments over a long period o
  9. Gotta love the "4D chess" holdouts. I'm curious to hear from those who don't support Wilson as the selection, what their reasoning is, and who they'd prefer instead.
  10. Hi all. I am a Bills fan (as made obvious by my screen name and avatar), and I come in peace. I've been talking draft with the same message board full of Bills fans for months now, and am looking for some fresh conversation. I'm curious to know how the majority of fans on this forum are feeling about Zach Wilson being the QB of choice at pick 2. Are the majority of you solidly behind it? Is there a considerable contingent of anti-Wilson people here? Any Fields truthers? I tried to gather this information by reading through several threads first, but there are quite a few, and it's a lot t
  11. I'm curious whether most Jets fans think Sam will succeed under Matt Rhule and Joe Brady in Carolina. Brady's a good offensive mind and Sam should have some decent weapons around him. I realize you probably don't care too much, and are more interested in the return of picks and which QB you'll be drafting this year, but Sam's career -- and whether or not he becomes "the next Tanehill" -- should be interesting to watch from afar. As a Bills fan, I'm just happy that Adam Gase keeps torpedoing the talented 1st round QBs of our division rivals. Maybe New England can hire him next in some
  12. And how did Allen do in the second half of the game? Allen and the Bills offense took down the number 1 ranked scoring defense in the NFL, in December, in prime time. That happened. On the same day, Sam Darnold and the Jets offense laid another turd on the field against the 18th ranked scoring defense in the NFL. How did Allen do against that very same Seattle defense, by the way? 31/38 for 415 yards and 4 TDs. AFC Offensive Player of the Week. Put simply: If you really think that Stefon Diggs is the only reason that Josh Allen is having a good year, then I suggest you don't know wha
  13. I find your argument completely illogical. In response to people pointing out that Josh Allen has made huge strides and is trending in the direction of being an electrifying franchise quarterback, you state that the Bills haven't beat good opponents yet? What? What does that have to do with Allen's play? "QB wins" aren't a thing. FOOTBALL TEAMS win and lose games. Besides, if quality of opponent is so important, than your oft-cited 6-2 run to end last season -- the one that made you think the Jets would start this season 5-0 -- meant absolutely nothing. Josh Allen improved in every s
  14. Like most of what you say, this simply isn't true. Last year the Bills beat the Cowboys -- who had a winning record at that time-- on national TV on Thanksgiving. They also beat the Pittsburgh Steelers -- who had a winning record at that time -- on Sunday Night Football to clinch a playoff spot. If your response is "well those teams didn't have a winning record at the end of the season", my response is "what does that have to do with the Bills?". You can only play who the schedule makers put in front of you. It's funny how the narrative always changes about Josh Allen. Lead
  15. Ugh. It was the same last year in Buffalo. Any time Gore checked into the game, we all knew what was coming. Even though Singletary was clearly the more explosive/productive player, Daboll just kept hammering Gore for 3 yards. It was a huge problem in the playoff game at Houston. About a 50/50 snap share, when it should have been 80/20 in favor of Singletary. I love Gore, but c'mon. It reminds me of the old line about fullbacks. "You need 1 yard? I'll get you 1 yard. You need 10 yards, I'll get you 1 yard"
  16. I was here daily during "training camp", such as it was. My Bills hadn't yet started their camp and I was eager for some football news. I remember reading that Perine looked like the best running back in camp on certain days. I certainly liked him coming out of Florida. With Bell on the sideline for a bit longer and Gore being solid/dependable but not spectacular, I'm just wondering what the odds are that Perine starts getting more significant snaps, starting this week. Thoughts?
  17. Mekhi Becton is a beast. He's gonna turn out to be the best left tackle -- and possibly the best player-- from the 2020 draft, and it won't even be close. I know it's early, but he has the looks of a perennial All-Pro, HOF type player. After two games? Yes, after two games. The guy just blots out the sun. Phenomenal player. Not looking forward to watching him stone my Bills edge rushers for the next decade+.
  18. I mean he DID stiff-arm Maye with his left arm as he went out of bounds at one point...but Maye had the beautiful forced fumble on him, so obviously the advantage goes to Maye here. Side note: Marcus Maye is a hell of a player.
  19. The thing that bothers me is that Josh seems to be held to a much higher standard than most other young QBs when it comes to his progress and success. Is he a finished product? No. Is he a surefire, no-doubt-about-it franchise QB? No, not currently.vBut has he improved consistently since coming into the league, shown elite traits at times, made plays with his arms and legs, and shown that you can win games with him under enter? Absolutely. Has he piled up 4th quarter comebacks, game winning drives, and become just the second QB in NFL history to record 30 passing TDs and 15 rushing TDs ac
  20. Weren't you saying the Jets were gonna hang 40 points on the Bills today? Aren't you the same guy who counts last year's season opener as a win for the Jets? If so, that sort of tells me all I need to know. Enjoy the season.
  21. The 71% completion percentage, the 104 QB rating, the three scores, and the scoreboard tell a pretty good story. To be fair, the full "Josh Allen Experience" was indeed on display today. He had two dumb fumbles and missed two TD throws. On the other hand, he made a few plays that very few guys in the league can make, he put his offense on his back and carried it, and he scored 21 first half points. What I see is an imperfect but improving quarterback who makes plays with his legs and arms but still has a ways to go to be elite. What story do you feel Darnold's day told?
  22. Josh Allen is who you thought he was? 33/46 for 312 yards and 2 TDs passing. 12 rushes for 59 yards and 1 TD. Yes, he had a couple really bad throws and two dumb fumbles. Still, the scorn/mockery Josh gets from Jets fans is laughable to me. I've seen him called a "running back" multiple times on this forum. If that's the case, then a running back just completed 33 passes for 312 yards and a 104.6 QB rating against your defense. By the way, your QB ALSO turned the ball over today on a really dumb decision. He just didn't have the three scores to go with it, nor did he put
  23. LOL. An Adam Gase offense has faced a Sean McDermott defense five times, and the average Gase offensive output is 16 points. Last year, against the Bills backup defense, with WR Isaiah McKenzie playing corner, the Jets put up 13 points. But now, all of the sudden, with Breshad Perriman and Chris Hogan at WR and a brand new offensive line in their first game together, the Jets are gonna come out and hang 40 on the Bills? Sure man. It wouldn't shock me if the Jets somehow pulled out a win. It's week one of a very strange season with no preseason games and a wonky offsea
  24. It's so cute that somebody from north Jersey thinks he can actually talk smack about someone ELSE'S city. Buffalo may have snow (oh no, snow! What EVER will I do?!) and suffer through various economic problems, but at least the entire city doesn't smell like a dirty diaper swimming in a see of toxic waste. I've been all over this country, and north Jersey is just one of the grossest, dirtiest, most horrendous places there is. And you want to talk smack about western New York? Sure man, good luck with that. Speaking of which New York team is best, it took Sam Darnold until week 9 of
