Stats aren't everything, if they were Fitz would still be here, he's better than Freeman. Every time I have ever watched Freeman theres nothing to like, he looks rather overweight for a QB

Is there a emoticon?

I'm sorry, three seasons of

Yds TD INT
3400 - 24 - 16
3832 - 24 - 23
3000 - 23 - 15

is measurably better? Stats aren't worthless when they're that clear.
Freeman isn't the best but he's better than Fitz (coming from a guy who liked Fitz) and he's better than Thad. But we lost out on him. We did our due diligence and now we'll have to make it work with... with... Thadeus Lewis. That's just, great news


edit: there is!

By the time Freeman has enough command of the playbook to actually be decent, Manuel will be back.

Is he a better QB? Yes. Is he the best option to play 4 days after joining the team? Probably not.

Can't blame Freeman for going to the Vikings. Better offensive team than the Bills. He would of been the best QB the Bills could of gotten for Manuel's replacement.

Paging Jaeger for his assessment of EJ Manuel as a QB thus far.

I have no idea if those years are in order or anything. If not it seems as if he's gotten worse over time. His first year was good. Bucs fought hard. The last 2 and this year he hasn't been impressive.

If you do the math there that's 71TDs and 54INTs. Fitz had 75TDs in 3 years(didn't start every game) I would guess his INT's were high than 54(60 some)but I think they are fairly close. This would be like back tracking in a sense

An extension to tomorrow is possible. The NFL hasn't had a single blackout yet this year, so I think it would behoove them to give the Bills an extension.

Not sure what the qualifications are though, so it may not be possible.

I agree that it helps to know the playbook. All things being the same, the guy that knows the playbook is better than the guy that doesn't.

But I'm not putting Nathanial Hackett out there over Tim Tebow if he was signed an hour before the game started. Ok maybe I would over Tebow.

My point being, you can know the playbook backwards and forwards, but you won't succeed unless you can make the throws. Which is what we saw with Tuel. Give me a QB where he can find an open receiver and give the WR a chance to make a play.

This is the Bills thread, I know, but on the subject of football: has anyone read Jeff Benedict and Artem Keteyian's book, "The System"?

Excellent read for any college football fan.

Hey guys. I have a question for any of you that live in the Buffalo area. I just saw that Noco is doing a thing where if you donate $20 to the breast cancer charity they give you 2 tickets to Sundays game. I live in Central NY but my wife and I would like to take advantage of this offer. Would anyone be willing to pick up 2 tickets for me via this deal and I can paypal them the money or pay when we meet in person to get the tickets? Id throw in a little extra for the gas to go to Noco and pick them up. Would really appreciate it. Shoot me a PM if you could do this for me.

Are the Bills the only team who still use the blackout rule? I thought the NFL made it up to the teams whether or not they want to use it.

Stevie and Gilmore will be game-time decisions, Byrd, Goodwin, and K. Williams are probable, and Spiller is questionable: http://blogs.buffalonews.com/press-c...decisions.html

I know the Bucs (to name one team) still have blackouts every now and then.

Speaking of which, I HATE the NFL's blackout rule.

I think teams were given the option of different thresholds for blackouts but there was some other catch to it, and when the Bills crunched the numbers they determined they were better off sticking with the original rules.
