Video Review: BillsMafia a Barstool Doc

By Steve

Here is the video if you havent seen it yet:
For the non tweeters  https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/877164161007894528

Its a "documentary" Bar Stool Sports made to show off their old footage from the Ralph the last few years. Its only 9 minutes and mostly rehashes footage we've all seen. Its equally hilarious and dumb and usless at the same time.

There were some fun classics like the butt chug video, tables being smashed and burned and some actual knew but highly pathetic footage delving deeper into dildogate.

They interviewed two dumbasses with idd sweatshirts on bragging about throwing the dildo AND their mother bragging about them bragging about throwing a dildo. This (presumed) sad lonely divorcee was about as sad and odd as it gets.

Why would she agree to be filmed for this internet only video seemingly made just to embarrass Bills fans and Buffalo? Aure its made in jest but what does she get out of this except scorn and ridicule? Funny I suppose but very weird. "My sons three a dildo at the game lulz" huh? Also now that everyone definitely knows who these bros are wont they get a life time ban or some other trouble?

That being said the video is worth about 9 minutes of your time, I hope Barstool comes back this season to film part 2 and that throwing a dildo vs New England becomes tradition akin to catfish and octopii

Sabres Hire Phil Housley as Head Coach meh

By Steve

So the new GM Botterill was a former Sabre and now the new head coach is a former Sabre (and was seemingly a bust). Are Buffalo sports franchises contractually obligated to hire people who have connections to the organizations?

Who knows if Housley is a good hire. Do coaches in the NHL mean ANYTHING? Anyone knew who Nashville's coach was before May? I still dont know who the Penguins coach is.

I guess at least he was a fast puck moving defenseman when he played. Maybe ol Phil can lace em up and be a player/coach! Or teach Rostonainen to not be a shitty defenseman. WHO KNOWS?

Didnt we all love the Bylsma hire because he had experience and delt well with superstar bitchboys? That worked! Oh wait no, lets get the opposite now!

Get ur shit together Botterill its gonna be a busy month bud.

Bills Hire Puppet as GM

By Steve

All hail king McDermott, who is more powerful in Pegula tower, Sean "dougy" McDermott or Jack Eichel? Jeez.

Brandon Beane, some Panthers flake is the new general manager. Is he qualified? Probs. Is he a puppet of McD? Of course. Here's Terry's statement:

""During our search for a new General Manager, Brandon stood out to Kim and I as he embodies the type of leader and type of person we want in our organization. Brandon has excelled in a variety of roles for a Panthers team that has consistently competed at a high-level in this league. We feel his vast understanding and experience in many facets of football operations will be invaluable to our club moving forward. We also believe his vision for the Buffalo Bills combined with his detailed approach will help build a foundation for sustained success. We are pleased to welcome Brandon and his family to Buffalo.""

142-145-1
Thats the record of the Panthers since Carolina hired Brandon Beane. Guy doesnt even have his own wikipedia page. Is that consistently competed at a high level?

How is Sean McDermott qualified to be the coach hire the GM and basically run an entire franchise? Does Terry Pegula have any clue what so ever what he is doing? This seems like an odd and foolhardy decision to empower an complete unknown.

This isnt a horrible hire in that Beane will (seemingly) be able to work well with the head coach which is much more ideal than previous arrangements around here. The main question is McDermott. And we will get that answer after about 8 games.

Wait was he hired because he has the same name as Russ Brandon? Food for thought.

Bills Fire GM Doug Whaley, Meh

By Steve

Can the Buffalo Bills fire their general manager and ambivalence prevails? Evidently.

Terry Pegula is the figuritive definition of incompetence. Why wasnt Whaley fired in January? Why does Russ Brandon survive like a cockroach in a nuclear hellstorm?

The Sean "douggy" McDermott show folks! He looks ok right now but it can (and will) turn ugly quick, especially at OBD.

What makes McD qualified to basically run a franchise? His interview must have been awesome! (Just like LaFontaine, Rex, Murray, Bylsma, Nolan etc. etc)

When Terry started taking over franchises around here like well connected developers in the fruit belt bought up city land he said he never fired anyone in his life. That didnt last long. Christ.

Why would anyone ever accept a job around here?

Then again Whaley was bad at his job. The Watkins trade was truly one of the worst imaginable. EJ was a disaster he never owned up too and his inability to conduct a coherent press conference was baffling.

He made a lot of good moves but he made more that were crippling. Did he hire the head coaches? Is he solely to blame for anything (besides the Watkins trade)?

DOES ANYTHING AROUND HERE MAKE SENSE?

Thanks for the memories and the mediocrity, I dont care.

Buffalo Bills Draft Pitt QB Nathan Peterman

By Steve

With their second 5th round pick the Bills go quarterback Nate Peterman. Originally was the QB at Tennessee but transfered to Pitt
6'2 225.

"

What he does best:

Not necessarily a pure/smooth thrower, but possesses a quick release.
Consistent footwork. Plays with a good base in control and throws on balance.
Great understanding of defensive recognition and where to go with the ball with the given passing scheme.
Good ball placement on short/intermediate timing routes.
Anticipates windows in zone very well.
Sees the field clearly. Consistently shows the ability to get through progressions, eliminating a read quickly and moving on to the next with relative ease.
Great overall feel and discipline in the pocket.
Athletic within the pocket and can burst to pick up key third downs with his legs.
Biggest concerns:

Arm is limited.
Doesn’t possess natural power to drive the ball. Needs to coil up to gain zip.
Ball tends to finish low on the receiver the further down the field you get.
Lacks pocket poise at times tending to bail out right when unnecessary.
Feet can get a little frenetic when facing pressure.
Inconsistent decision making outside of the pocket or late in the down at times.
Bottom line: Peterman has seen his stock rise the more people find out about him. He is a very solid, steady player with a limited ceiling – but shows a great understanding of the passing game. His arm is just OK, but with his ability to see the field clearly and work through progressions combined with his natural feel in the pocket, he has a chance to develop into a middle of the road starter. He played in a system with a lot of jet sweep gimmicks, but has experience under center and working full field progressions in both the drop back and play action pass game. Peterman can step in and be a backup on most teams right now, with the hopes there can be tweaks with a few things mechanically and as he gets older to gain more strength in his arm."

Weak arm? Yikes

Bills Trade Up Draft WR Zay Jones

By Steve

The Bills moved up 7 spots in a trade with the Rams to take East Carolina WR Zay Jones the fourth WR taken in the draft.

The Bills gave up their later 3rd rounder but got a 5th back. Not bad, they took who they wanted but this guy better be good.

Grade B-

Bills Draft CB TreDavious White LSU

By Steve
Love it

Bills get an extra first round pick an extra 3rd round pick and a consensus first round talent.

Senior from LSU who is as about as dynamic a returner as you can get. Fits perfectly with McDermott defense

Grade
A
