2018 NFL Draft Preview: Quarterback Rankings

By Steve

Time to put together my final ranking of the quarterback class of 2018! Here is my list of Bills draft needs. Look for a podcast later this week.

2018 QB rankings:

1. Josh Rosen
Easy choice. He has the size the production and the intelligence. The injury history is concerning but there is no sure fire baller in this class.

2. Sam Darnold
The hype around this guy because of one great bowling game last season artificially inflated this dude. Whether or not the USC quarterback thing is real or not still gives me some hesitation. He had a mediocre 2017 and turns the ball over too much. High floor low ceiling.

3. Lamar Jackson
Liddle Shoulders Lamar is a potential star in the ride system with the right coaches. When are NFL franchises going to realize how important offensive continuity is and pay their O.C. as much as the head coach or close to it? LSL runs a lot which wont work in the NFL but he can sling the rock too.

4. Josh Allen
He can't hit the broad side of a barn and struggled in the Mountain West. Who the hell does Wyoming even play? He has the size and arm but if he isnt Joe Flacco reincarnate then I dont know football.

5. Mason Rudolph
Too bad the big 12 doesn't play defense so its tough to judge these dudes much. Id like this guy in the 2nd round.

6. Baker Mayfield
Short as hell, athletic and an ass hole who runs from cops. I dont get the appeal and I have no interest in this dude. Liddle Baker Tebow isnt on my big board.

2018 NFL Draft Preview: Buffalo Bills Needs

By Steve

Tough to argue with the idea that this is the biggest Bills draft in franchise history. The roster is talentless, Buffalo has two selections in each of the first 3 rounds and the pressure of the playoff drought had been lifted. McBeane and co (even fuckin russ god damn brandon [shoot me]) better not mess this up.

The selections:
12
22
53 (2nd round)
56 (2nd round)
65 (3rd round)
96 (3rd round)
121 (4th round)
166 (5th round)
187 (6th round)

Biggest Needs Ranked

1. Quarterback
Could AJ McCaaron be decent? Maybe, but he certainly wont be great. There was a reason the front office dumped player after player the last 10 months. To build an arsenal to land a highly touted QB. Its doable and its mandatory they do it.

2. Wide Receiver
Does anyone in their right mind have faith in meth boy Zay Jones or no knees Kelvin Benjamin or Jeremy yes hes a Bill Kerley?

3. Linebacker
Who the hell is the middle linebacker? Who are any of the linebackers? 48 year old Lorenzo Alexander?

4. Cornerback
Vontae Davis is on a one year prove it deal and is a major question mark.

5. Guard
Its this low because guards are guards. Groy is probably ok enough.

6. Runningback
Shady is old and the bums behind him arent good.

2018 Buffalo Bills Schedule Reaction

By Steve

What a piece of shit schedule. 4 home games after Thanksgiving every single game at 1pm except the MNF slaughter and start the seaso on the road. Fuck my life.

Could easily see the Bills starting out 0-4 but starting with the Colts week 7 I could see the Bills rattle off 8 straight wins.


At Minny and at Green Bay back to back is real rough. Again starting at Baltimore makes no fuckin sense. 4 of the last 5 games in the division is odd.


No Thursday night game is also stupid.

More in depth

Some positives

Week 2 is an LA chargere let down after KC game

Week 3 minny let down after big GB

Week 5 tenn let down after hosting SB champs Philly

Week 6 Hou let down after a big dallas SNF game

Week 10 is a jets get away game with their BYE the next week

Week 12 jax let down after a big pitt SNF game

Week 14 NYJ 2nd straight road game

Week 15 Det 2nd straight road game

Week 16 NE let down after big Pitt game

Week 17 Miami does have extra time playing TNF week 16 

2018 Buffalo Bills Schedule Predictions

By Steve

The schedule is coming today so its time to make some predictions.

First what we do know, the opponents. The Bills will play:
Home
LA chargers
Detroit Lions
Chicago Bears
Jax Jaguars
Tennessee Titans
Dolphins, Jets, Patriots

Away
Houston Texans
Green Bay Packers
Indianapolis Colts
Minnesota Vikings
Baltimore Ravens
Dolphins, Jets, Patriots

The Bills will start the season at home, and Ill predict the Jaguars. (Im already getting flash backs to the 2004 home opener [more over that whole season could be a doppleganger for the entire season, rookie QB gets hurt, defense is good.. uhoh]).

The Bills will have one and only 1 primetime game. Early November against the Dolphins.

The season will end with a meaningless road loss at the Patriots.

There will be another 4+ home games after Thankagiving pissing off every 45+ year old in the area.

Christmas Eve is on a Monday so Buffalo wont be effected.

Look for a tough 3 game stretch vs N.E. at Vikings at Packers tanking the season in mid October.

All 1pm games.

Oof

Buffalo Bills Sign QB AJ McCarron

By steve

2 year contract for the 27 year old former cincinnati Bengal. He has 3 career starts along with a playoff start in which he nearly beat the Steelers.

Two years is a solid bridge to the QB they'll draft and push to start this upcoming season.

I see this as a Nick Foles esque insurance policy with some upside.

Is he the quarterbsck of the future? Almost certainly not but a capable NFL quarterback for a short period.

**UPDATE
Contract details per profootballtalk
"AJ McCarron deal in Buffalo: Two years, $10 million with $6.5 million upside based on playing time. Per source."

Even cheaper than Foles. I see no downside to this at all
