Oh ferchrissakes---outside of professional sports, I don't think there's an industry that invites more outside experts than PR.

I know--personally--the PR director of our local NFL team. I can tell you exactly what Chris Brown knows and what he doesn't know.

It's part of the Orange's smokescreen, but I wish he would be right.

Always amusing to see folks describing Brown as a "reporter" and wondering "what he knows".

He is Bagdad Bob. He's the Minister of Information (or Misinformation).

Funny, but listening to the scouts, Manuel would be the one guy they don't take for SURE. They practically dismissed him. Either a great smokescreen, or maybe they asked him to do that to help throw others off the scent. Hard to believe anyone could make that pick after listening to the Bills publicly.

has the Bills selecting QB EJ Manuel at #8. Does he know something that we don't??

The linky: http://www.buffalobi...b5-4be7675e52aa.

I'm hoping the Bills will trade down at least once before they select their QB of the future.

Your thoughts on Brown's selection at #8 overall??


Are you the same Chanoverchin who posted this same (?) Chris Brown said the Bills were going to trade down?

you could say it's open to interpretation, but i've been listening to these things a while and i think most agreed it was not all that favorable. i can't go to these places from work to give links, but i think first comments were on Bills luncheon last week (trasnscript on Buff Bills website)

and then yesterday scout talked about him (WGR website.. they have the audio).

they mention some positives, but generally if they mention as many doubts/reservations... they are not sold on a guy and it's about as negative as they tend to be.

I'm taking full credit for starting the TBD meme: Chris Brown is a frightened lemur. Seriously, I first said that **** like back in like 2008.


Do we have to cite our sources on TBD?

Jokes aside, nice work, I can't help but think of that every time I see his eyebrows jump off his forehead as he rambles on into the second minute of his question

Thanks. It'll be interesting to see whether they're bluffing or not.

Last year he had us taking Mark Barron, which you can't say indicates one way or the other because he was drafted before the Bills could get at him.

I havne't seen anyone mocking EJ Manuel that high...anyone! This is the Bills saying, "Chris, mock EJ to us, we need other teams to think we are interested in him at 8 so they'll trade up and grab him and we can slide down and get Nassib or Barkley." No chance in hell we pick Manuel at 8.

I was wondering what his track record of success was. It wuld seem this would be a great final smokescreen to throw out there. Except for the fact that it seems of all the qbs this is the one I haven't yet heard tied to the team.... Maybe they are smokescreening me! The double reverse smoke screen! That crafty old coot!

Whoever we take, where ever we take them we will hear what we heard about Donte Whitner, TJ Graham, Willis MacGahee..."Another team was looking to take him a round early so we had to grab him there"

I believe this means we are, almost certainly, not taking Manuel at 8.

Also, he absolutely knows more than the average bear. Whether or not this is gamesmanship, an attempt to throw our opponents off the scent or to double-secret-criss-cross-confuse them, that remains unseen.


So you were the first to describe Brown as a somewhat scared strepsirrhine primate, endemic to the island of Madagascar?

He is a member of the Bills PR department of course he knowsething we don't. Having worked in pro sports for 8 years I can promise you that those guys are preparing for a certain direction. He may not be out there revealing the plan (in fact it is probably the opposite). He certainly knows and it would seem that QB is the favorite.


Pretty much how I feel.


Btw, would anyone happen to know whose Chris' past predictions included?

the Bills simply use Brown as another smokescreen...

In all honestly nobody has any idea what QB the Bills covet the most, and that IMO has been by design

Anybody else find the timing of this article interesting: http://blogs.buffalo...room-hierarchy/? I think that it speaks to exactly what the poster was saying yesterday about the internal struggle. Oh, cryptic Chris Brown
