  1. https://www.nfl.com/news/2021-nfl-draft-justin-fields-rashawn-slater-among-day-1-s-top-value-picks By Cynthia Frelund The Bills brilliantly add versatility and youth at a true value with this pick, considering Rousseau was No. 16 on my board. Tracking his 2019 data (he opted out in 2020) shows he lined up all over the defensive front and was productive in each spot. From the first game to his last that season, Rousseau steadily improved his average time to pressure (which was adjusted for alignment). Rousseau checks both the "ideal" boxes of measurement for body mechanics at the posi
  2. https://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/draft-tracker/?ftag=SPM-16-10abi8e By Pete Prisco Gregory Rousseau EDGE, MIAMI Height: 6-7, Weight: 265 The talent is there, but he didn't play last year and it hurt his stock. He is a big power player who fills a need. (Pete Prisco) Grade: B-
  3. https://www.nfl.com/news/2021-nfl-draft-day-1-quick-snap-grades-for-all-32-teams By Chad Reuter Grade: A Miami DE Gregory Rousseau (No. 30 overall) Analysis: The Bills are in a favorable position, as their roster is so well-built that they could sit back and allow the draft to come to them. Rousseau played only one full season of college ball, but looks exactly like the powerful and long edge rushers teams want. He moved inside at times at Miami, presenting the power and agility to be a difference-maker at the next level. I suspect this will prove to be an excellent pick
  4. https://www.pff.com/news/draft-2021-nfl-draft-grades-32-first-round-picks By PFF.com R1 (30) BUFFALO BILLS: EDGE GREGORY ROUSSEAU, MIAMI (FL.) Pick Grade: Below Average Rousseau is a physical freak at 6-foot-7 with 34.75-inch arms and 11-inch hands. He opted out of the 2020 season and carries with him concerns about how he’ll fare as a true edge defender, though. Rousseau rushed the passer just 283 times in his college career, anywhere from 0-technique to stand-up outside linebacker. He earned a 71.3 pass-rushing grade from outside of the tackle in 2019, but when he rushed fr
  5. https://theathletic.com/2544638/2021/04/30/2021-nfl-draft-grades-round-1/ By Sheil Kapadia Pick 30, Buffalo Bills: Gregory Rousseau, Edge, Miami The Bills have been looking for a difference-maker on the defensive line, and they decided to bet on the upside of Rousseau. At 6-foot-7, 266 pounds, Rousseau produced 15.5 sacks and 19.5 tackles for loss as a 19 year old in 2019. He opted out of last season. Rousseau is not a pure edge rusher. Much of his production came on the interior as he proved to be too quick for guards and centers. There’s definitely a bit of a projection
  6. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2021/04/20/bills-expect-tommy-sweeney-back-after-developing-myocarditis-last-year/ Glad to hear this - apparently he is back to working out but not fully cleared yet.
  7. Tom Brady is a proven cheater. I will never forgive that. No respect for him at all.
  8. Exactly. Kelce really seemed to be WIDE open all game. Almost like we were trying to bait Mahomes into throwing him the ball, which would have been a good plan if Kelce stinks and he somehow had the game of his life. But he has had the occasional good game before.
  9. I think one thing that is being overlooked is the effect of crowd noise. I don't think the Bills offense has faced any meaningful crowd noise all year until the AFCCG. (Same thing with the Ravens last week). I know they've all dealt with it in the careers, and probably practiced with it in mind, but there's nothing like actually experiencing it in a game. You can say the Buccs overcame it at Lambeau, but at least based on the broadcast, Lambeau sounded nothing like Arrowhead this week or Bills Stadium last week.
  10. I've seen this a lot this year - there's a timeout and the QB doesn't head over to the side line. Wonder why?
  11. I also wonder if the Pats were just trying to drive up the price knowing Buffalo was their main competition. Might have forced us to toss in an extra draft pick or two.
  12. KC has enough weapons to be scary without Mahomes, but with him they are other-worldly. Still not invincible - as the Raiders proved. But I personally won't be heartbroken if Mahomes waits until Monday to feel 100%. The Chiefs are an easy team to root for. They seem like a class outfit all the way around. Really hoping for a shootout this week. These two teams should provide plenty of fireworks. We do need to avenge that loss before SB 1.
  13. I agree that the official was in a tough spot, and even after seeing a couple replays I did not notice it being helmet to helmet. But since the play was being reviewed any way, the NFL should allow the hit to be reviewed too. I guess I'm advocating that helmet-to-helmet should be reviewable, even if it requires a challenge flag from the opposing team, if we don't want too many interruptions to the flow of the game.
  14. Not surprised they are releasing him, but it seems kind of early, no? What's the rush?
  15. Longtime Bills DE Jerry Hughes finally finding playoff glory https://www.nfl.com/news/longtime-bills-de-jerry-hughes-finally-finding-playoff-glory
  16. "4. Bills resemble Super Bowl winners with 32 rushing yards in playoff win The Bills knocked off the Ravens, 17-3, on Saturday despite having only 32 rushing yards. That marked the fourth-fewest rushing yards by any team in a playoff win in NFL history. Good news for Buffalo: The 1999 Rams (who had two playoff wins with fewer than 32 rushing yards) and 2014 Patriots (who had the other such game) both won the Super Bowl that season." https://www.nfl.com/news/nfl-stats-and-records-divisional-round-brady-rodgers-set-more-records Might as well start engraving the trophy now then.
  17. Watching the replay again today of the Higgins fumble, his hands come apart at the exact instant his head is hit by the tackler's helmet. Not calling the penalty was really egregious.
  18. How many years is my GM contract guaranteed for? If 3 years or less then Watson without question. If 5 years or more than probably Lawrence. The ONLY question that matters is how long is my own personal contract. If you think the GM is concerned about the actual short term / long term for the sake of the franchise, you are assuming facts that are not in evidence.
  19. The fraternity of active players who know with certainty they are going to the HOF is even smaller. Guys see the greatness in each other and feed off of it.
