    Exactly.

    I'm more concerned the Jets get the number 2 pick and someone like the Rams or Titans get the number 1 pick. Buffalo has more than enough ammunition to jump anywhere in the first round they want.

    Obviously this seems like a QB heavy draft, so the number 2 pick could be great. Definitely a little worrisome, and increases the importance of the tank IMO.

    If they trade up, they will spend a lot of picks for one player, which means depth issues and holes that won't be filled. Sure they could. But will they?

    Either way they will likely fire the coach/GM in 2 years anyways and change the system again. This is a dumb move. They are building for the future, but trade a top 10 talent WR in Watkins who is still very young. Also don't forget they traded the farm for this guy in the draft just a couple years back, which makes it an epic fail.

    This is why the Bills haven't made the playoffs in 20 years. You don't rebuild by trading your potential #1 WR of the future. You don't rebuild by changing your coach every 2 years.

    Whether they fire people or not, I don't know. Nor do I care.

    What I do know is that they are acumulating draft picks in a year where at least 2 franchise QBs seem to be in play.

    Maybe they love Tyrpd Taylor and have no interest in the QB market. I'm not willing to take that chance.

    For the record, Marrone didn't get fired :)

    but hey, if you need to make shit up to fit your narrative, go right ahead and run with it.

    The new HC and GM don't love Taylor that is why his contract was restructured. This is basically a prove it year for him. With 2 picks in the first 3 rounds I would be shocked if the Bills don't try and grab one of the potential franchise QB's in what is supposedly a strong draft for QB's.

    Matthews is equal to Watkins in my mind because Watkins is always hurt. Watkins is more talented but you can only use that talent if you're on the field.

    Darby can definitely play but if I remember correctly he had a down year last year. Might be because of the island system that Rex used.

    The Bills made a good move here. They have all the draft picks in the world to move up and gets quarterback especially if a team like say the Buccaneers or Titans (that already have their franchise guys) have a down injury riddled season and end up at the top of the draft.

    This is the first time in a long time that it seems like the Bills management has done something correctly.

    If they don't go up and get a quarterback then they have a TON of draft picks in a wide receiver heavy class (I believe?) to replace Watkins. Seems like they're gearing up for the retirement of Brady. Stockpile assets and young players so in two to three years when the old man finally retires they can finally compete in the division.

    Tyrod Taylor looking impressive in the 1st 2 preseason games, 13 of 26 passing for 99 yards, no TD and 2 INTs

    We just have to get the #1 pick. Then they can't trade in front of us.

    Are you saying Mark Twight will be our next coach?

    Most teams look like shit in preseason. From what I saw their O looks bad but their D looks good. I'm only talking starters not 2's or 3's.

    I don't get the Darby Trade at all. Even if they are looking to go full rebuild, he is one of the most promising you corners in the game.
    There are some new rumors that they are looking to trade Taylor and McCoy.
    Those moves would definitely signal full rebuild.

    Boldin retires. Their WR corps is almost as bad as ours.

    They're trying to out-tank us! And they have way more draft picks to move up.

    Yikes

    When they signed him he was supposed to play on the otherside of Samantha Watkins. Then they traded Watkins and he was probably like "f this I don't wanna be double teamed every game"

    I'm not. Their starting D has looked good. It's only preseason but they look more like the D they had before Rex screwed it up. Their offense still centers around McCoy. It will probably be a low scoring game but I expect the Jets to leave there 0-1.
