    • Polian let his son make more decisions on pulling the trigger on drafting, that cost both of them eventually.
    • Ballard has said from day one that wants to build a culture...and that has clearly been a focus in their evaluation process. It's a good thing...but are they putting too much emphasis on that one aspect that ultimately might have little to do with what happens on Sundays? Does the process weed out more talented players because of a perceived slightly better fit in the locker room? And does that "better fit" even matter?   It just seems like there would be plenty of hard-working college players that would fit a good locker room culture...and we have seen this throughout the NFL...as the vast majority don't seem to cause any issues. And how many teams actually have bad locker rooms? A few maybe...the teams that are losing and have bad coaching/management? Those teams start winning again...and those problems (mostly) go away. So is bad locker room culture really even that much of a prevalent issue?   And how does one prospect get a nod over another? What is the deciding factor if it's not talent? Just seems like some things could be missed with a process that places an importance on a possibly arbitrary aspect like how a player did at the Senior Bowl...or what type of background does this player have. I don't know...I would hope that Ballard and co. are constantly evaluating why they missed on a player or missed out on one.
    • He would probably need a change of scenery like Robby Anderson and actually, he might work out for a team like the Packers where all they need is a reliable #2 which he can be opposite DaVante Adams. If the Packers could go after Funchess and word is they wanted Fuller, they may not be able to afford Fuller in the off season and will settle for Corey Davis, IMO.
    • So any word on the mcl injury it’s almost 4pm
    • How do we know that?  Based upon being drafted on traits, can we say there has been much difference between Green and Benogu at this point?  I'll give you a third traitsy player drafted in the second round that did nothing, Jerry Hughes.  All that guy did in college was run around the college OT really fast to get to the QB.  Apparently Polian saw something that could be molded.  Never clicked until he got to Buffalo.  Hopefully, Ben turns into Hughes and not TJ Green.  As do Turay and Lewis.      But here's the deal that folks forget.  At that particular time, that spring, we didn't need a WR with AJ Brown's traits because we had just signed Funchess to start at $16M for one year.  We needed a slot, a WR with traits like Paris Campbell...and not even McLaurin, who was seen as similar to the Funchess/ Brown role.    It was the only point in time during the preceding three years that we did not need the traits that AJ Brown showed, because we had them secured on the roster under a one year contract.   Draft for need.  Look at traits. Seems like there is a little too much tunnel vision, or a narrow view to some of these decisions.  But that's just my view from a fans perspective.
