A thread for posting your opinions about the Bills (or NFL in general) that are or might be unpopular here on Two Bills Drive.
What do you think that differs from the general consensus?
(NOT A THREAD FOR FLAMING OTHERS OPINIONS, just to post  some thoughts.)

Geno Smith looks more comfortable throwing the ball than EJ.

Mexico City should be the first international team home.

Not breaking the bank for Levitre was the right move.

We NEED a new stadium.

Stevie is the man, and doesn't deserve the criticism he receives on here.

I would be fine with the NFL contracting 2 teams.

Roger Goodell is a good commissioner.

I don't really have a problem with the Toronto game (as long as it is a non-divisional game)

Why would they do that? They would be conflicted about jocksniffing NE all the time.

Stevie Johnson is a clown whose best years are behind him now that Chan's scheme and his buddy Fitz have gone bye bye.

Lee Evans was never really that good.

Are any of these really unpopular?

The officiating has generally been fair in the Bills games.

Nathaniel Hacket has been doing a pretty good job calling plays to establish a run first identity and protect young QBs while still scoring a fair number of points.

Pretty much agree on these.  Especially the clown part.  Although the Plaxico impression WAS damn funny.  Not worth a 15 yd penalty, though.

Fitz was a sold QB and, had it not been for the money situation, would have been worth keeping as a backup.

There is no way to definitively say that the homerun throwback play was a forward lateral.

Thasard Choice is a solid player and helps the team when his number is called.

EJ is going to have to change his mechanics on his long throws if he is going to be successful in the NFL, and that very rarely works out well.

I like the Pro Bowl being played before the Super Bowl, and I prefer that the nominees, whom are going to the Super Bowl, not play in it.

If Los Angeles ever gets an NFL team, they should be called the L.A. Bronze.

Buffalo wings were invented in Rochester.

And... (sigh)... here it goes... I fear that EJ is going to be a bust.

Daryl Talley is overrated.

Steve Tasker isn't worthy of the Hall of Fame.
