Re: Redskins vs. Bills (Preseason Game 1) Thread

Thing is Buffalo, is well, Buffalo. It is not as bad as Detroit necessarily, but damn they get worse winters than up here in Motown, plus like any other rust belt city that grew in the modern industrial age, it is in a steady decline. In short, I am not sure that too many marquee players will want to spend more than one contract there. Eventually they will get back to being decent, but it will take awhile. Total rebuilding mode now for the Bills, but there was a ray of hope. Fitzpatrick wasn't that bad, and those RBs had a good outing against us in the second half. Their D sucked though. I just hope that the city doesn't lose the team.

I think our 1st team dominated. Our 2nd team actually doesn't look that bad either. I felt our 3rd string had a major drop off but that might be due to their lack of NFL experience. Buffalo from what I'm hearing now put their 1st stringers back in the game late in the game. I'm just pointing out that the reason they looked half decent might be because of that reason alone.

Re: Redskins vs. Bills (Preseason Game 1) Thread

Like I said earlier in this thread.. The Bills are the worst team in the NFL and it's not even close.. They might as well move to Toronto because No one will want to play up there. They had a nice run in the early 90s with Marv and the gang but as far as the future goes, it looks pretty bad. I'm still stoked on the way we played because under Zorn we probably would have lost last nights game.

And that is a sad but true assessment. Damn, I'm glad he is outta here, but more than him, Cerrato and Jason "check down" Campbell. (****in' 65% completion percentage my asshole)

So, Carriker = Corneilus Griffin? Hey, at least he's got the number for it.

Doesn't Ma'ake Kemoeatu wear #96? I thought that was him last night, I guess I might've been mistaken. I was just telling my friends there's so many new numbers to get used to, I'm gonna have a hard time remembering who's who out there. I saw #53 out there and I was like, damn Marcus Washington is looking good, oh wait, he hasn't played for us in at least 3 seasons lol. I think that's Perry Riley. Either way I'm gonna wait until the regular season before getting acclimated to a bunch of new names on old numbers, because I don't wanna start learning the names of guys who won't be here in 4 weeks.

Re: Redskins vs. Bills (Preseason Game 1) Thread

Carriker is cheaper and younger and has a much better upside. At this point in CG career he is on the downslide of his career and is just as oftenly injured.

Much higher reward bringing Carriker in now and betting he can be a good player.

This from 7&9 EveryYear:


I'm so glad Cerrato is gone, Snyder brought in a proven HC, and Allen seems to be working out. I just hope things turn out to be awsome.
Like I said before. After this offseason Buffalo needs a season like this (ie a wake up call). I know Buddy Nix was part of the San Diego brain trust under Butler and subsequently AJ Smith but he's never been a GM and at 70 years old never really seemed to have the qualifications to make it to that level, and his head coaching hire proves it. Chan Gailey has never been successful at the NFL level. At least Zorn was a QB guru. He was a good college coach but the Chiefs thought so little of him that they fired him before last season started.

Plus did anyone else notice that they have glaring holes along the offensive line that went addressed in the offseason? This story rings a little to close to home for my taste. The people of Buffalo don't deserve this crap.

I mean are they trying to move to LA because thats what it looks like to me. Let's just pray that Snyder isn't like this when he gets to be Ralph's age.

Their best hope right now might be that they draft Jake Locker next year and get a couple of scrappy wins, similar to how the Falcons were with Vick. Of course if Locker studies film and does all the things Vick claims to have skimped on then the skies the limit.

You know who reminds me of the 2009 Redskins? The 2010 Raiders.

With major breakdowns on the offensive line a year ago, they drafted defense with their first two picks.

With that said, I don't think they're destined to go 4-12; I picked the Redskins to win 11 games last year after all. I do think that they'll win 7-8 games, that their defense will be pretty disappointing (not the top five unit their fans are expecting), and that their offense will be much improved, but Campbell will get hit too much, and have a decidedly average season that doesn't wow a lot of people.

At least their kickers are good.

Yeah, I think you might be right. I'm still confused by the 2-4-5.

Re: Redskins vs. Bills (Preseason Game 1) Thread

So, uh, Josh Freeman was spectacular for four throws.

Throw the Bucs back into the mix in the NFC South. Crazy competitive division. Would not be shocking if the Saints finished last.

Lol, you wouldn't happen to be buying into a certain pattern with the NFC South would you?

On another note I just rewatched the Devin Thomas touchdown pass. Turns out the Devin deserves more credit then he got for that play. Thomas actually was able to use a head fake and quick cut to draw the cover man outside before turning back inside for the post. On top of that he was able to do this against a veteran defender, not some guy simply hoping for a roster spot. So congrads Devin, you're one step closer to cementing your place on this roster. If I can learn how to upload videos I'll post it.



This one is more of an inside joke with me and my brother.

Ok, my second team if there is one is the Bucs, and I wouldn't even say they are back. If Gruden was still there I would say he'll get it fixed and be back in the mix, but this second yr HC I don't think will get it done. I see possibly 8-8 for the season if that good and the HC getting fired. Might it be a good landing point for the Chin of Fox is not let go in Carolina? Probably not.

I also think Dallas will have a mediocre yr and the HC there be fired. You heard it here first..... I think Dallas and Tampa will be looking for new HC's. Philli I keep wondering about. I keep thinking it's Reids last yr and they keep him around so who knows there. I wonder about the Browns HC. I think the owner is simply playing out his contract but he might be fired or not brought back after this yr also.

I totally agree with you. I too saw the fake out route and turn in for the post. My first thought was awsome job Thomas. My second thought was the position coach must be finally doing their job. Thank god Hixon is gone cause it actually seems like McCardell is teaching the WR's something that Hixon failed to do for so many seasons. Teach. Hell even Armstrong who was a practice squad member last year is now 1st string offense/starter and showed awsome technique when he used his body to shield the defender and score. To me though I wouldn't have given him the TD. I felt he lost control of the ball and fumbled and recovered at the 1/2 yard line, but who cares the Bills didn't challenge.

I agree with you about Armstrong also,reg season that play is getting overturned.I also thought there was a blatant block in the back on the punt return for a td
