    Watched them a bit last night. The Pegulas got to be the dumbest owners in the NFL.

    2014-Bills have an elite defense under Schwartz and Marrone

    2015-Pegulas fire Schwartz and Marrone and bring in Ryan who runs a completely different defense than Schwartz, and team subsequently struggles.

    2016-Team spends a ton of draft capital and $ on players who fit Ryan's defense

    2017-After firing Ryan they replace him with a guy who runs a similar defense than Schwartz. Now draft picks from a year ago (Ragland) are taking 3rd string reps because they don't fit the defense .

    They will be better than how they looked last night. McCoy was sidelined, Boldin just showed up & Watkins is looking healthy for the first time since mid-2015. I think they will win 8+ and compete for a WC as long as their defense does start looking like the 2013-2014 Bills defense.

    They'll be better than the Jets. I don't even think that's a question.

    I think what the Bills are doing is very smart in terms of increasing draft assets.Where I worry about them is drafting;even more so than the Jets.

    On a Jets note,if Ragland gets released Is be all over that

    this might actually be a good move for them. 2 1sts, 2 2nds and 2 3rds now and they get rid of Samantha Watkins who is really soft.

    just funny considering he was a savior to all those moron jills fans

    Smart moves by the Bills. With 2 picks in each of the first 3 rounds, they have so much ammunition if they want to move into the top 3.

    All the more reason for the Jets to tank for number one. You do not want the Bills to jump your for a franchise QB.

    Better hope we can clinch the #1 pick (unless Hack emerges as a future starter) because Buffalo now can trade up to wherever they want next year with 2 1's, 2's and 3's.

    They'll now be no more than a 6-7 win team though this year. Matthews is a downgrade, even if he can stay on the field more, and Gaine is a big downgrade. Darby can play.

    He won't be released, traded possibly.
    The Bills are stockpiling picks. Ragland will bring them a third , possibly a second round pick in a trade.That being said, I think he will be in Buffalo for the 2018 season. Especially with Preston Brown becoming a free agent. He's still recovering from the ACL and learning a new position.

    I know it was against backups but damn Nate Peterman looked pretty good for where he was drafted. Threw the only Bills TD on a pretty good drive.

    They traded their two most valuable assets in Watkins and Darby. Matthews is a one year rental so he was a throw in IMO.

    Sure they have a bunch of picks, but they also have a ton of holes to plug.

    don't the bills now have 2 1sts and 4 2nds? Anybody who thinks the jets will get the number 1 pick and the number 1 qb now is crazy.

    I just read that too. I thought they had 2 1sts and 2 2nds before today, that must be somebody else..anyway we will have no ammunition to move up like other teams will.
