Yeah, Kiper is an *******. McShay is tolerable, but he has his favorites.
Lotulelei is definitely a top prospect, I can't imagine the Raiders passing on him. #1 isn't out of the question, but I can't see the Chiefs (who currently hold the spot) picking another DL. Raiders are right now at #3.
I don't see KC passing on Barkley or Geno Smith. It's obvious they need a QB
Well they both are but it's hard to predict how GM view people. Kiper has a lot of problems with QBs.... I mean you don't take anything he says about them (unless you got a guy like Luck that you know will be amazing). A couple years ago everyone had Panthers 1. Newton Broncos 2. Dareus Bills 3. Von Miller... wasn't exactly off but look how different the Bills and Broncos defenses are because of that.
Right now I see Keenan Allen, Matt Barkley and DEs being drafted for the Bills. I throw out any draft that has the Bills picking a DE in the first round. Barkley is too high at 11-12.... unless the Bills trade down. LB or Allen or this draft may be a massive disappointment
Von Miller. Oh man, I wonder if williams or Anderson would have still been sought though? Dareus has disapponted somewhat.
Anybody watch this sad display of Football? Man the Bungaloes offense stinks! Outside of Green(when he gets the ball) But it twas a Philadelphia turnover party.
Just for kicks...TRENT EDWARDS was the eagles backup QB. Thought he was long outta the league.
So no matter what...if the Steelers win Sunday the playoffs are dead. Otherwise it will come down to Week 17 and hoping the Clowns and Ravens can win(yes I assume Pitt will win next weeks game) Bills would win tiebreaker over Steelers via conference record and I think they have it on Cincy regardless.

Moot point if the Bills don't beat both Seattle and Miami beforehand.
Sounds like Nix is considering making a move up the board to get that young QB. One has to question if this is the year to do that--probably a year late, Buddy.
After saying he needed to draft a franchise quarterback, and then circling back and saying he might not, he threw another log on the fire Friday morning, a bigger one at that.
Not only do the Bills need to draft one, he said during his weekly radio show, they might have to trade up to do so.
“Let me say this: I think there’s a time that in the era that you’re in and the development of your team, there’s a time when you can move up a round to take a quarterback,” Nix said on WGR, unsolicited (via Tim Graham of the Buffalo News). “And I think the time’s now for us.
“I mean, if a guy’s there — I keep saying that, and there’ll be one out there — if the guy’s there, then I think we’ll target — as I’ve said before — drafting a good quarterback. We need a good, young quarterback, and we’re going to do our best to get him.”
My interpretation of his comments are that they want someone other than Geno Smith with their first pick. He makes this public statement, most assume he means trade up for Smith, it scares another team into trading up ahead of them to grab Smith and maybe allowing the guy the Bills actually want to slip.
I don't think last year was right for it either, unless you were willing to pay STL through the nose.
So far it looks like it was worth it.
In all honesty, how good is Washington, really? That team isn't all that talented. They just have a star QB who makes the entire offense works and an average defense. Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss aren't exactly a stud WR group, and their running back is just another guy.
I've said here before that I think Griffin won't hold up over the course of his career. That he doesn't have the body for an NFL starting qb. He's done well when he has played but so did Newton last year. Come back to me when he's done more.
The greater point is, this team is lacking in QB. It's lacking in coaching. It's lacking in ownership. It's just... lacking.
I disagree to a point. Doing some analyzing of this team I think you could argue they should be a 9 or 10 win team. If only Gailey wasn't so clueless when it matters. That in turn is on the GM. Which in turn is on the owner. I agree with 75% but I do think Fitz and this team could win if the HC doesn't oh I don't know....abandoned Spiller when the game is close in the 2nd half(Gailey has done that in 3 games the 2nd half of this season)
Flacco is actually worse than Fitz. The only thing he can do is throw deep, yet he wouldn't be an upgrade if you looked at some of his stats, which is disappointing because Fitz's arm isn't as strong.
Flacco is infinitely better then Fitz.After this year it will be 4 straight seasons of 3600+ yards, 20+ TDs and under 12 ints for Flacco. Fitz is 3 years older and has 3500 less passing yards and 9 less TDs then Flacco. Flacco has 98-55 TD / Int. Fitz 89-78. Flacco has won playoff games.Fitz is a bottom 5 QB. Flacco is a top 15 QB hands down if not better.Flacco is easily worth 2 1sts and is a proven winner. Flacco is the only QB to make playoffs last 4 seasons but your right Fitz is better
