  2. Quickness of offensive line. I have never seen our offensive line move as fast. From quick snaps to their movements to the tempo of the entire offense.
  3. Play calling was excellent despite the fact that it was a pre-season game. I was worried about K. Shanahan knowing what he is doing.


Minuses:
  1. I wasn't too pleased with the first team defense but I'm sure it will get better once Albert is plugged-in. Run defense looked ugly and that's all I'm going to say about that.
  2. I have zero confidence in Carter's ability to play outside linebacker.
  3. Kelley is a gonner. I don't see what he brings to the table and I really can't justify him being on the team.
  4. Roger still sucks...if the Bills had a decent QB he would have given up a TD.


Anything you guys want to add?
Seriously? You didn't think Kyle would know what he was doing? The guy was the O coordinator of one of the best offenses last year! He is arguably a top 5 O coordinator.

Preseason game #3 vs. the Jets when the starters will play a lot of the game... now that will be a serious test. Especially for our offense. Their D is lights out, even without Revis. I'd love to cram a win down Rex Ryan's big fat pie hole.

Why? Thomas looks like he is going to produce this season thus far. If Kelly comes in and goes gangbusters in the next few weeks keep him.
If he doesn't do all that much ship him out. If he even gets hurt once more(preseason) I think he is toast. We had another guy like him that supposedly showed promise and that was Taylor Jacobs, who was an absolute waste of space for the 4 years we kept him. I don't question Malcolm's ability as a pass catcher, just his ability to stay on the field for most of a season. We have many promising young Wrs that thus far can stay on the field.

Anything you guys want to add?
1. Trent. W. seemed to play pretty well. He looks very athletic.
2. Are you really surprised that Carter looked out of place? He's simply not an 3-4 outside LB and they should never put him in coverage.
3. Kelly didn't play but does anyone think if he plays full time that his body is going to hold up over 16 games? It's time to move on.

Totally agree GM, we looked pretty sharp for game #1, but we will see how we do against the Ravens and get a real gauge on how we stack up to the so called contenders. IF we really do well against the Ravens we will do rather well, barring serious injuries.

Kelly's the kind of guy who will get a legit shot elsewhere in 2011, but we wouldn't be wrong to finally give up on a guy who can't keep himself on the field.
Agreed fully... could IR him I guess if wanting to keep him around

Terrence Austin didn't do well Banks 1 Austin 0

Dennis Morris; didn't hear his name called once.
love the one man gang but I doubt that you're in any position to make the depth call at LOLB.. media hype and coaching praise, while I'm sure much deserved, doesn't mean you're the best. It wouldn't surprise me to see Renzo start this week.

What he needs to do is get back on the damn field to prove his worth. He's definitely going to be on the bubble the way he's going right now.

Even I'm about ready to move on if needed at this point. How long can a damn hamstring linger? It wasn't even a full pull right? They need to do some blood work and see if the kid is deficient in certain minerals/nutrients if they haven't already.

Is there a vitamin you can take for being a bitch?

I'm sure he'd be out there if he could. You don't think the kid knows he could get cut?

Re: Pluses and Minuses: Bills vs Redskins

Not making excuses for Kelly but hamstrings can be tough. They are very prone to re-injury if you're not careful.

That is exactly why he needs to suck it up and play. I understand that Shannahan said that he doesn't want him to set himself back but after 2 weeks of a non serious injury, he has to gut it out and at least try to do something.

See Day 1 of TC for an example.

Last time he did that he put himself into this current situation, no?
