    Re: T. McGee and Pears to IR

    And there are now two open roster spots. Time for the latest scrub OL and CB to be signed.

    Watch them sign Stanford Routt. Sigh.

    I feel bad for McGee. One of the few brights spots from the ineptness of the 90's.

    Except he was drafted in 03.

    Potter was cut too.
    I remember that one fateful day when Coach took me aside. I knew what was coming. "You don't have to tell me," I said. "I'm off the team, aren't I?"
    "Well," said Coach, "you never were really ON the team. You made that uniform you're wearing out of rags and towels, and your helmet is a toy space helmet.
    You show up at practice and then either steal the ball and make us chase you to get it back, or you try to tackle people at inappropriate times."
    It was all
    true what he was saying. And yet, I thought something is brewing inside the head of this Coach.
    He sees something in me, some kind of raw talent that he can
    mold. But that's when I felt the handcuffs go on.

    McGee's started 10 games since the 2009 season, he reached a contract extension in 2009 and started 10 games.

    Extend McGee, let Greer go, 3 years later it looks like the guy we kept is going to be out of the league.

    McGee shoulda been cut at least 2 years ago. He has no business still being here.

    right on time. the people who don't need to be Ir'd going on IR to bring in no names so we can claim they are on the upswing.

    He was a terrible man corner which is what we tried to do when we switched to more 3-4. Once we switched to the 3-4, he shoulda been shown the door and a replacement should have been sought out. Then he was constantly getting injured on top of it.

    No business still being rostered.

    Well, McGee lasted about 6 games longer than I thought he would.

    Thanks for wasting your prime years in Buffalo, but it's time to go.

    Re: T. McGee and Pears to IR, Potter Cut

    I'd be OK with signing Routt, but I really wish they'd get deals done with Byrd and Levitre.

    Can't wait to see how Easley performs in a real game, and Brooks should get more pt now.

    Long you live and high you fly And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry And all you touch and all you see Is all your life will ever be.

    If I were Byrd or Levitre I wouldn't sign a new deal with this team. Why tie yourself to a losing franchise when untold amounts of money are on the horizon and possibly with a contender.

    Re: T. McGee and Pears to IR, Potter Cut

    Unless Hairston falls on his face, I think he's going to be the right tackle for the Bills for the foreseeable future (meaning after this current season too). Maybe the Bills will see if they can trade Pears for a low draft pick. I think it's possible the Bills may elevate Zebrie Sanders from the PS, if he's been developing satisfactorally through the first part of the season. Then they bring back one of their undraftied free agent tackles to take his spot on the PS.
    I've made up my mind. Don't confuse me with the facts.

    A wise man doesn't waste effort telling the world he's wise. If it's true, it will be self-evident.

    Byrd will get big time money in FA. The Giants made Antrelle Rolle the highest paid safety in the league a few years ago, tells you all you need to know about the safety talent around the league. Teams are desperate for safeties, Byrd will cash in big.

    Why wouldn't that be a great idea?! Let's have 3 kickers, a long snapper, a special teams "ace", a fullback, and an H-Back (no offense Double D, still rooting for you) on our gameday roster! All are viable choices, and there's NO way we would need more players on offense or defense to backup the constant river of injuries we've had over the past 8 years!

    And if any of you think Jairus or Andy are sticking around, please contact your local authorities to have them put a comfy white long sleeve jacket on you. We lucked out with Stevie, and that was a blessing in disguise.

    Money talks.

    Unsure what it would take to keep Levitre but giving Byrd a 5 year deal worth 33.5 with say 15 guaranteed is something we can easily do and that should be about his going price in FA.

    Ive heard Ed Reeds name and retirement after this year a few times. If that Happens I could see the Ravens trying to get Byrd.
