    Bills seem to make a surprise pick in the first almost every year. And they're consistently awful. Perhaps, there is a correlation between the two...

    So they're the new Bengals? It seems like there was a time when Cincy would pretty much always go off the board in the first. As you noted, I think there was a correlation between this tendency and sucking on the field.

    Manuel's not going to be running the football out of the pistol formation. He's a pocket passer, roughly the same size as Ben. He's athletic enough to avoid pass rushers like Ben does, but he's not really much of a running QB overall. This past season, he got nearly 3400 yards (and 23 TD's) with his arm with just over 300 yards (and 4 TD's) with his legs


    NFL player locker room talk: Discussing what can be done about racial inequality and criminal justice reform.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    The thing that gets me is everyone (so called experts), are dead set on him being a project but based on what the Bills did today they are going to be forced to use him year one. And that is a recipe for disaster. He was drafted based on one thing. His arm strength. His decision making over the past few years has been questionable. It is the reason that makes him a project. Matt Barkley has less of an arm than him (but not a horrible arm), but has every thing else. He is the one who is far more NFL ready. I just dont get it. But these are the things that teams look back on and say how did this happen.

    You are probably the only one who thinks this highly of Barkley... there is a reason his is still on the board.
