    Actually, this is the first year that the Bills did NOT bring in some players from the 53-man cuts, which says they didn't see anybody out there better than what they already have. I'm sure there are other teams around the league that passed on making roster moves, too.

    They did make a move late in preseason to secure a better backup QB than Tyler Thigpen by trading a 7th for Tarvaris Jackson. They could have probably waited to the final cuts, but they didn't want to take the chance of him going elsewhere. A competent backup QB with starting experience is definitely worth a 7th rounder.

    You're welcome to Maybin. At least he hasn't been quite the bust that Gholston was.

It has worked for you guys so well in the past, Im sure it won't disappoint you this year either.
    You Jests fans, like your GM, seem to think there are Super Bowl MVPs being cut at the end of the preseason. There aren't. The best ones are youngsters who get caught up in numbers games, and so can help teams that are thin at those positions. I'm sure if some team cut a Pro Bowl 4-3 MLB in his prime, the Bills would be have rushed to "kick the tires", but those guys don't get cut at the end of preseason; they get released or traded before their roster bonuses hit. The Bills and numerous other NFL teams did their shopping back in March and April when the inventory was fresh rather than waiting for the end-of-season clearance sales from the picked over stuff that didn't sell.

    The Gnats' 4 playoff wins in 2012 are worth at least 100x all the Jests playoff wins in the last three years ... and all the Jests playoff wins since 1969, too.

    what you fail to understand is that you aren't looking for great players at cutdown day but guys that can contribute, guys that can develop. Good organizations are always looking to add talent, when you think your roster is settled you are mistaken. That's bad management if you think your job is done at cutdown day.



    Cool but no team has more playoff wins since 2009, right? so no matter what you think opf us you surely can understand we have been one of the best teams in the league, right?

    So did Ten Ginn Jr. you just signed yourself GinnV2.0

    we aren't counting on him, we are taking a chance w/ him. If he is a Ginn type that could be ok b/c we can use more deep threats. If not, we let him go. he's a role player here unlike Ginn who was counted on to do so many things for you.

    He made up for Gholston. We got him for dirt cheap with no draft compensation.

    You Jests fans, like your GM, seem to think there are Super Bowl MVPs being cut at the end of the preseason. There aren't. The best ones are youngsters who get caught up in numbers games, and so can help teams that are thin at those positions.

    We are not really looking for a SB MVP out of Clyde. He might not even see the field IF he even makes it through the first few games. He'll be a special teamer and a safety blanket incase Hill and Schilen get injured.

    Are we really discussing this about a guy thats probably ranked 53rd on the Jets squad?

    The Gnats' 4 playoff wins in 2012 are worth at least 100x all the Jests playoff wins in the last three years ... and all the Jests playoff wins since 1969, too.
    How about their two wins in the playoffs against Brady? Are they better than all ur playoff wins in the entire history? Im not sure how a Bills fan can even make such an argument.
