    I really hope Duke makes the team.

    He is the only big receiver we have . And he has really good hands . I think he would be josh's main redzone target.

    I don’t like his chances.

    From what I saw the coaches never put him in with the ones.

    Re: I really hope Duke makes the team.

    Then the coaches are just playing it safe. If they dont take a chance on him then they are not trying to win. Joke.

    A very disturbing trend in Canada now is that Justin Trudeau's behavior and lies have become 'acceptable' . . . more disturbing yet is his cabinet of brain-dead penguins have accepted his criminal behavior and have surrounded and support him. Those same brain-dead penguins have a lesser grasp of 'ethics' than their leader . . . . this country is in deep poo.

    Re: I really hope Duke makes the team.

    He has two nice TD grabs so far. Both from Barkley. Neither of those throws are throws that Allen makes. Unfortunately, Duke's skillset doesn't complement what Josh does. Barkley is the guy who throws guys open. Duke doesn't get the separation that Allen looks for but can play toss and catch all day with Matt.

    As I have said many times, you're clueless. WGR has an entire article about Williams playing with Allen last night.

    Bills' Duke Williams gets work with Josh Allen

    I was so glad to see Duke Williams get first team reps in the first quarter with Josh Allen.

    They're a bunch of clueless idiots if he doesn't make the team.

    From the article

    .Allen never threw him a pass
    Expect more of the same when teamed with Allen. He's a Barkley type of receiver. Physical, with strong hands, can track the ball in the air with great body control. Barkley knows how and where to throw it to him so he can adjust against the defender and get it. Josh has a long way to go in that department.

    Yes. That wasn't the point. He was in there playing with the ones. Seems like everyone else saw it.

    Sorry, I wasn't refuting your point. Only saying that if he makes the team, Allen would find him much less than Barkley would.

    Can't teach size. And he can block too. I think the two impressive catches earned him a roster spot.

    if he really wanted to make the team he should have put some effort into playing on special teams.

    Bills already are overloaded with ST "aces".


    If he is targeted 2 times a game and 1 is a TD, he's doing more than 30 + players on the roster.

    His blocking in the running game is going to earn him a spot

    So we're now going to have goal line WRs in the league? He'll play a handful of snaps per game and the entire defense will know what's coming! On top of the fact our starting QB hasn't even looked his way thus far and doesn't throw balls to even take advantage of his size.

    Problem is he's never gonna be a top 3 WR on the roster to do that. So you're gonna take Brown, Beasley or Foster off the field to put a guy who obviously has no chemistry with your starting QB just because he can block? Not likely.

    Zay Jones may be toast, hasn’t done much, year 3 and nothing to show.

    He will probably make the team at the expense of Isaiah McKenzie. Tough cuts have to be made.

    Who are locks so far besides Brown and Beasley? Zay?

    That leaves what, 7 guys fighting for 3 spots?
