I guess I'm just wondering why folks here are crusading to get rid of a guy who didn't even suit up last Sunday.

 

He's clearly a last resort that get churned out sooner or later; however, given the talent level of any available O-linemen (practice squad or whatever), you'll pretty much have the same problem with anyone occupying that roster spot.

 

Complaining for the sake of complaining.

 

Because a guy that doesn't belong on an NFL roster doesn't belong on this team's roster...and the fact that he was apparently being considered for a starting role is rather disturbing, don't you think?

 

No, there's no way you have the same problem with a guy like Zuttah, Lelito, or even a Brandon Fusco type (all of them are available right now).  A world of difference in player quality.

I love the meme, but I think it's more fact than opinion. Big Bad Vlad doesn't belong in the NFL.

Thanks.  Looks like no shot at a 3rd.  Oh well, would rather have the players that can help today anyway.

 

If Glenn can stay good to go , hope Dawkins gets a look at RT 

 

Plus Henderson is avail after wk5 at RT also

 

I thought Dawkins was competing at RT now that Cordy is back?

Dawkins played spelling Cordy in week 1.

Ducasse has no business on an NFL roster and I'm still baffled why Jordan Mills is starting for this team.

Actually, it's not a fact.  He is indeed IN the NFL.  Obviously someone(s) with more influence than us thinks he does belong there.

It's a fact that he doesn't belong. It's also a fact that he is in the NFL. You can be somewhere, and not belong there. I can be in the women's restroom, but I don't belong there.

Do you get the idea that some of our most opinionated board members haven't gotten around to watching the opening game yet? :flirt:

We won't really know until week 10. I could see Ducasse, Davis and Holmes cut by then, especially if the Bills are able to sign replacements (and it appears they are already searching for Ducasse's replacement as we speak (they brought in 2 Guards)).

I know less than zero about Vlad the Imploder as a person or citizen or teammate. But I would bet anything that in the locker room (and despite good or bad written about him, again I have no idea), he is a God-fearing hard worker and team player. Probably helps out guys like Miller and Groy trying to take his job. Likely has a green uniform with a slash full of medals and merit badges.

That's what Opie likes and wants.

Any of these Greco and Zuttah guys that are now available, the good citizen and teammate element of their game is more important than their talent or experience. If they match Vlad in that arena, AND are better players, then and only then will they supplant the Imploder.

Believe it or not Mills was one of a few OTs not to allow a pressure week 1.

If he keeps it up, and Miller continues to flake out, we should give Dawkins a look at RG once Glenn is 100%. Most projected him at G coming in to the league anyway. I'd say it's worth a shot. The goal is to get your best five out there anyway, am I right?

I know he and Cordy split time at LT.  Doesn't mean he's not competing at RT since Cordy should be ready to be the full-time LT again soon.
