    When players get traded, they steal the headlines and people go bezerk with overstating ridiculous comments. Don't be a sheep.

    and I happen to think your wrong......the fact that I am saying it about the guy that just screwed over the Bills should speak to his talent level. He was a top 3 LT the season before last and that was only his 2nd year starting there.....

    • I would bet very highly that Peters will return to form next season. His training camp was essentially the first 3-4 weeks of the season. He let up alot of sacks early, and regained his dominance by season end. There was a reason that he was selected to the Pro Bowl by the players. He's an elite LT.

        stop being a sheep ******
        Lemme guess... you're gonna add at least 3-5 more "potentially best NFL LT" candidates to that list once the draft is over...

        I mean potentially speaking, there are about 20 of them in college football today who didn't even enter the draft, right? ...and about 20 more on NFL practice squads and 40 more on starting rosters... Potentially speaking that is... :P

        • This is still a very big investment by the Eagles. Giving up a 1st, 4th and a late 2010 pick as well as pouring in $11+ a mil a year to Peters is huge.

            Was he or was he not a top 3 LT the year before last after only playing 2 years at the position? That why I feel his ceiling is much higher than the likes of a Joe Thomas who is closer to reaching his ceiling. But yes that potential number of number one overall lt's will grew exponentially per week.

            • If the Bills want any sort of an offense in 2008, they're probably going to have to spend both 1st round picks on offensive linemen.

              Oher and Mack would make a lot of sense.

                And what's more is that having the 28th pick instead of the 21st means that they won't be able to get Pettigrew unless they spend the 11th pick on him or make a trade.
                I agree... Oher could go anyway between 6 and 10... and all of the teams picking in that region would take a look at him.

                  This all depends on if the Bills consider Kirk Chambers or Demetrius Bell starter-worthy at LT or LG. It's sad but they might...

                    How do Bills fans really feel about their QB situation? Do they believe that they have a QB that can get them a ring?

                    What about trading one of those picks for a QB? Brady Quinn? Or someone else? What about packaging the 2 picks to move up for Stafford or Sanchez?

                    I don't disagree though. If they keep those 2 picks, OL would be most wise.

                      I like Trent Edwards but he is in the Jason Campbell tier of QB's, he won't be the type of Qb that will lead you the the promised land. They could make the jump...potentially speaking. :p

                      • I don't think Quinn is an upgrade over Edwards.

                        • Edwards seems like the type of QB that can win a Super Bowl. He has looked fantastic at times but is obviously still progressing and has taken his lumps. What stands out with Edwards is his maturity and poise. I think he can become a top-tier QB (top 10) next season. I'm not sure he will ever be a guy who will take over a game but he I think he will become an above-average guy who can do more for you than just manage a game.

                          And D-Unit: you are crazy if you think the Bills would even consider trading for Brady Quinn or making a move for a QB. Dick Jauron and Ralph Wilson absolutely rave about Trent.

                            I know one always feels you need to get a quarterback in house first, but I'm not sure many other parts of that team are worthy of getting them towards a ring either.

                            Edwards was worryingly inconsistent last year, but he wasn't flat out bad. I still think he can be a decent NFL starter, but the truth is that, without blockers, there's going to be no way to find out. Additionally, anyone else that the Bills bring in will face that same situation.

                            Buffalo won't have a passing game without pass blockers, whether it's led by Edwards or not. This is actually a pretty good offensive line draft, so I'd hold onto those picks and use them.

                              Edwards has had some quarrels with offensive coordinator Turk Schonert. When we came off a short week and played the Chiefs, the gameplan was very simplified and Edwards constantly mentioned in interviews that he loved how simple it was. Obviously the Chiefs weren't very good but Edwards had one of his best games of the year.

                              The consistency really didn't worry me last year. He definitely progressed from his first year when he made some really bad throws at times. I think Edwards is primed for a breakout season.

                              • As for the Bills o-line, I'm not too worried about it actually. Kirk Chambers played surprisingly well at LT in his opportunities and the staff is extremely high on Demetrius Bell. These are obviously not household names but if they get the job done I'm not complaining.

                                Not to say that I think both of these guys will start. I still think we take a first round LT. However, I don't think the majority of people realize how awful the left side of our line was last season. Peters was bad the first few weeks of the year and Dockery was straight awful. We started off 4-0 despite this. Even though I bet the majority of people can not name two starters (maybe not even one?) on our current o-line, I for one am not overly concerned.
