Default So Tirefire Taylor is worth the first pick in the 3rd Round

Thanks, Cleveland!

unbelievable that they gave up that pick for taylor. the guy's numbers look better than he is because he doesn't throw INTs, but he isn't a starting caliber QB. i don't know why they'd give up the first pick of the 3rd round just to avoid throwing a rookie QB to the wolves.

Buffalo has picks 21, 22, 53, 56, 65, and 96 in the first three rounds. I have this weird feeling this is tied to Foles.

IMO U gotta talk to Nick and see what he would prefer to do. I'm sure he understands the situation.

Goodwill with players is worth something,

BTW, I got my Nick Foles autographed "Philly Special"photo delivered today. It is actually quite nice.

I would be shocked if his camp hasn't produced a list for the front office already if he wants to go.

From purely a football standpoint, Buffalo is pretty good situation. Good fans, decent OL, some nice pieces on that team. They can compete right now.

Living in Buffalo is the big thing. I'm reasonably confident they're the team that offered the 2, so whatever Nick's feeling is, I imagine it's already known to everyone concerned.

Fair value for an NFL starting QB.

yeah, i think living there would be the only holdup. otherwise, i think nick would like to be with j matt, shady, and another coach from the andy reid tree.

it would be amazing if howie could somehow finagle a first from them. i'd probably even do a two and a three.

This makes no fucking sense to me.

Why pay a 3d for cannon fodder so a draft pick can develop, when they have guys on the roster who can do that?

Do they actually think he's the answer at QB?

WTF?

Why would Foles want a coach from the Andy tree?

He thrived under Kelly and then when Gomer integrated some of that shit into his offense.

Well then Ginger can be the second coach from the Andy Reid tree to integrate some of Kelly's shit into the offense for Foles.

Edit: Also took an offer from Reid to convince Foles not to retire, and KC was where he started to love football again.

You don't think it's a stretch that Ginger's connection to Reid is a factor in Foles' analysis of possible landing sites?

Not to mention ... Ginger is a defense guy.

Sure, it could be. But I also wouldn't dismiss it.

McDermott is dumb as a rock. I wouldn’t want Nick to come to Buffalo and I live here. For his sake.

Everyone here thinks the Bills are trying to trade down an draft a QB. I havent heard much interest in Foles here.

Makes zero sense to me. Pick #65 is primo draft capital. For a "bridge" QB? Go sign Josh McCown is that's what you need. I don't get it.
