One of only two teams w 12+ wins the last two years. Ten is doable, hell this isnt the playoffs we're predicting.
OVER

Commanders - 6.5
Tough division snd Sam Howell is nobody.

Daboll limped this team & Dimes to the playoffs some how. This line is lower than I thought it would be.

Eagles - 11.5
SB hangover 
UNDER

North

Non-believer

Lions - 9.5
Every team can't go under i suppose

This line also is low
OVER

Vikings - 8.5
Cousins is Cousins
UNDER

2023 AFC Over/Under Win Total Predictions

by Steve

Fooooootbaaaaaallllll

Prediction time! AFC win total over/under predictions:

East
Bills - 10.5
Division is fairly tough, faith in the coach is at an all time low and the team hasn't improved any where on the roster from last year.
UNDER 

Dolphins - 9.5
Questions still surround Daniels and Tua and the offensive line and the secondary. 
UNDER 

Jets - 9.5
Im not a Rodgers fan, then again never have been. Saleh know how to coach? 
UNDER

Patriots - 7.5
Mac Jones was benched for a dude they cut this summer. Was Patricia that much if an abomination? Yikes, he mighta been. But I dont see the offensive talent
UNDER


North
Browns - 9.5
Am I taking crazy pills? How is this team winning 10+ games.
UNDER

Bengals - 11.5
I cant take all unders. How did no one hire their DC?
OVER

Ravens - 10.5
Not a big Lamar fan and this division is going to cannibalize itself a bit. 10-7 still seems like a good season.
UNDER

Steelers - 8.5
Kenny Pickett? lolol
UNDER

South
Colts - 6.5
Gonna take at least a year to get Richardson going.
UNDER

Jaguars - 9.5
Odd line.
OVER

Texans - 6.5
7-10 seems possible although I really am skeptically about CJ Stroud.
OVER

Titans - 7.5
So easy to hate this team but Tannehill is serviceable and Vrabel is like Tomlin but white.
OVER

WEST 

Chargers - 9.5
Staley is a clown but I was wrong about Herbert, dude is good.
OVER

Chiefs - 11.5
This team seems due for some bad luck and close losses. They are Kelce and nothing else special in the weapon department. 
UNDER

Broncos - 8.5
Line seems high but didnt Wilson used to be good? The coach is actually adept this time around. If Denver is good that will make the current Jets OC even more of a fucking clown.
OVER

Raiders - 6.5
The bottom is about to fall out.
UNDER 

Recap 
10 under's and only 6 over's

Bills Draft LB Dorian Williams 3rd Round

by steve

Smallish group of LB.

Hitter but kinda small.

Tulane?
grade C

https://youtu.be/8Jlr7TNOdtY

Bills 2nd round Pick: Guard O'cyrus Torrence

by steve

Thought for sure theyd go defense but the Bills stick w their plan (i guess) and go beef. 

They draft big Florida guard Ocyrus Torrence w # 59.

Hope hes not cody ford 2.0

Going offenee makes sense in a way. The offensive coordinator is a travesty snd they have a defensive head coach.

One thing McDerr can do is find defensive contributors off the trash heap. With no linebackers or defensive tackles on the roster McDerrrrr is gonna have to.

grade
C+

two 24 year olds already drafted, damn

C+ because he isnt a starter this yeat and unlikely next year w Bates contract and Dallas boy. He could be quite good tho

Bills Draft Dalton Kincaid TE 1st Round

Bills traded up for a tight end Dalton Kincaid 

grade B-

Ken Dorsey better change up this offense 

2023 NFL Draft Predictions

by steve

Here is part one of the Bills draft preview, here is my QB rankings.

Now lets give some predictions for the 1st round of the 2023 NFL Draft:

All the draft mockers over draft the QBs, RBs and WRs like always.

Either Levis or Richardson falls out of the top 10.

Only 1 running back goes in the first round.

Only 3 receivers get drafted.

Dumb Beane trades up again.

The Raiders, Patriots and Lions do something dumb.

Schefter does something stupid on twitter. 

This draft is called the wildest of all time like every year.

Three tightends go round 1.

Rodger Goodell gets bood.

Will Anderson goes 2 to Houston.

The Bills draft defense.

Buffalo media is shocked they dont draft a receiver.

Coast returns to twitter.

Someone is really sad in the green room.

2023 NFL Draft Preview: Quarterback Rankings

by Steve

Here is the first part of my previews, Bills needs.

Now here is my final QB rankings for the 2023 NFL Draft:

1. cj stroud
ngl his awful C2 (never heard of the test til this year) is scaring me off.

2. hendon hooker
25 years old and coming off a torn ACL again is scary but I just dont think this draft is as strong as billed.

3. max duggan
More like moxey Duggan amirite

4. anthony richardson
Dude has the tools but no experience. 

5. malik cunningham
AAC is a mediocre conference. 

6. bryce young
Tiny little dude surrounded by all americans.

7. tanner mckee
Stanford pedigree baby.

8. will levis
Im not a believer. I dont buy it.

9. stetson bennett
Ill take a flyer.

10 dorian thompson Robinson 
Anthony Richardson lite

11. aidan oconnell
I like non OSU big ten QBs a little bit.

2023 NFL Draft Preview Part 1 Bills Needs

by Steve

The 2023 draft is 35 hours away. Time to get started previewing this shit.

The Bills disappointingly only have 6 picks. Did Beane ever hear of a comp pick? ffs.

1st: 27
2nd: 59
3rd: 91
4th: 130
5th: 137
6th: 205

With only six picks, trading up at any time is about the dumbest idea perhaps ever conceived. 

The Bills have holes all over this roster and are coming off back to back to back embarrassing playoff losses. Ugly.

The Bills biggest needs ranked:

1. Linebacker

Sure you cant draft another limited position value like LB in the first round like Beaney did with Edmunds 5 years ago but there still is no replacement for him on the roster. 

2. Defensive Tackle

After drafting DLine first in every draft since memory serves, its inconceivable that the Bills draft DLine 1st round again but who tf are the tackles on this roster?

3. Interior O line

I hope Mitch Morse wears a helmet if its windy out. A stiff wind might blow a branch off a tree and end his career. Dude collects concussion like I do death threats on twitter. The guards suck too.

4. Wide Receiver 

The only voice questioning Gabe Davis before last season was yours truly. Shocker, I was correct. Dude is meh and will likely get overpaid after the season. Need his replacement because Brown and Beasley might not be able to make future flights to Buffalo when they're stuck in line at the Social Security office.

5. Tight End

Sure Knox has an absurd contract and the combo of McDerr loving nobody half back/FB/TE combos and Dorsey not using TEs in his offense might make this position useless in Buffalo, who the hell is the second TE on the damn depth chart?

6. Safety
This position is lower than some might suspect but Hyde will likely resign again and the dude they poached from the Rams (Taylor Rapp) might be a good stop gap. Still Hyde and Poyer are older than the skidmarks in Wreck's undies.

7. Edge
Can't have enough pass rushers especially when you over paid a dude with .25 ACLs total in his legs.

UB Basketball Hires Head Coach George Halcovage

by Steve

The long nightmare is over. After 3 grueling weeks since Whitesell was finally shown the door (with $500k in a briefcase) UB has finally hired a new head coach. 

39 year old Villanova assistant George Halcovage has been hired. Never a college head coach, Halcovage has been his entire collegiate career at nova working his way up from video coordinator. 

He checks boxes for me. Young, comes from a real program and agreed to come here. There were rumors all over the internet that UB has struck out with at least 4 other people before Georgey signed.

Did some heavy bag UB booster finally step up and get this one over the goal line? Hopefully.

I never fully understood all the negativity about the job. Buffalo is easily the biggest market in the MAC, they had the largest AD budget un 2021 and has had recent success not only in the MAC and the tournament but also as a stepping stone to huge cash pay days.  

Thats why I never understood the Whitesell hire either. Continuity?  In college hoops? That doesnt exist these days.

Time to hit the portal Hal legggo.

Bills DC Leslie Frazier is Out

by Steve

Bout time, what took so long? This Bills announced a mutual? departure with old bones Frazier today, 37 days after losing to th3 Bengals embarrassingly in the second round of the playoffs.

Frazier's defenses their last 3 playoff losses have been abysmal. Is it all his fault? No, but it was beyond time for a new voice in the coaching room.

With Edmunds and Poyer due to depart, the defense is going to look a lot different than the last few years. Maybe Frazier just wasnt up to the task.

McDerr is now on the hot seat.

What the New Playoff Rules Mean to the Bills

by Steve

The Bills will play the Chiefs at a neutral field in the AFC Championship Game if they beat the Patriots on Sunday and the Chiefs beat the Raiders.

If the Bills lose to the Patriots and the Chiefs beat the Raiders, Buffalo would go to Kansas City for AFCCG.

If the Bills beat N.E. and the Chiefs lose to the Raiders then the Bills would host the AFCCG regardless of opponent.

If the Chiefs AND Bills both lose this weekend but meet in the AFCCG it would be on a neutral field regardless of Cinci outcome.

If the Chiefs AND Bills both lose but Cinci wins, Bills would be the 3 seed.
