    There is no thread yet for Buffalo for this upcoming season so I thought I'd started one. Here is a bit from Rotoworld on Aaron Schobel. Also I'll do a list of white players who made the team when it's time and edit it into this post.

    Bills coach Chan Gailey reiterated that the team is hopeful Aaron
    Schobel will continue to play football in 2010.
    <div> "Our stance hasn't changed, nothing's
    changed," said Gailey. "We would like to have had him here, but he chose
    not to and he's got a tough decision in his life to make and we
    understand. ... He'll have a lot of catching up to do when he gets
    here." The last sentence at least indicates optimism from the Bills.
    Schobel continues to miss valuable "install" workouts for Buffalo's new
    3-4.

    DT-Kyle Williams was clearly the Bills Best D-Lineman last season...my question is how will he fit in this new 3-4 scheme?? Williams is more of a 4-3 protypical DT than a Nose Tackle. He played at Pro-Bowl Levels last season IMO; but hard to get recognition when you play for a bad team.Only a 5th Round draft pick in 06',,,,,he has beat out 06' 1st round sumo-flop John Mc"Bust"Cargo each &amp; every year!

    If he stays healthy Posluszny should be one of the Leading Tackers in the NFL!

    Will Aaron Schobel retire? He turns 33 just before the season starts. I'm curious to know how he would play in the 3-4 scheme at OLB.

    Wonder how John Wendling's microfractured knee surgery is healing??

    The Bills have issues at WR...

    Would a white RB have a legit chance if he came out of tiny Coe??Edited by: TwentyTwo

    TwentyTwo I think it would be interesting to see if Kyle Williams would be able to play a 3-4 DE. I know he's shorter (6'2 I believe) but he might have the bulk and quickness to fit in just fine. Pos is just a beast, I hope he can have a breakout year! And yes the Bills WRs have been horrible for sometime now, besides Lee Evans. I was hoping they would draft a white WR this year [​IMG]

    All good points tho buddy!

    Aaron Maybin (11th overall pick in '09) is apparently having a hard time "adjusting to the pro game"... Didn't Mel Kiper, and the other loser, just absolutely slobber over him when he was selected?...



    He don't look too bright.. Is that what a Penn State "student" looks like these days? The Bills' don't know how to draft properly!

    Well, Reggie Torbor is injured now. Looking at his career numbers, he might be a "decent" back-up, but that's it. Not exactly a WGA.



    Shawn Nelson suspended for 4 games..

    He was a man among boys at Southern Mississippi, where he could simply use his size, but, in the NFL, he hasn't been able to grasp the technical aspect of running routes.

    His YPC last year was just weak.

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/story/13882151/bills-cut-hardy-jackson-keep-rookie-fas-nelson-jones

    So, they cut James Hardy (and Chad Jackson) and they kept two UDFA receivers.. Cutting salary?

    Hardy profile: http://espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=11275

    He was hyped A LOT when drafted out of Indiana. It is important to be healthy, and this is acknowledged on CF, but several stud White athletes, HEALTHY White athletes, get screwed.. while black nobodies replace other black nobodies.

    The NFLs Caste System is not standing on the strongest ground right now. They can "find" negroes and put them on rosters, we know that, but they can't hide the fact that the "product" has become fractured, and, like with a ship, those fractures spread and eventually cause it to submerge...

    Caste Football Looks at the 2010 Buffalo Bills

    The 2010 Buffalo Bills present a very strange roster demographically. They begin the new season with 8 White starters -- well above the NFL average -- but those 8 are pretty much the only White players on the 53 man roster. Of the other 45 players, the two backup QBs are White, along with one White backup o-lineman, and of course the placekicker, punter and long snapper. All other backups and starters are black, which does not portend well for White players in future editions of the Bills.

    Stanford's Trent Edwards won the quarterback battle, defeating Harvard's Ryan Fitzpatrick and Louisville's Brian Brohm. Edwards has ability but has had an up and down career, which can be traced in part to the feeble offensive talent often surrounding him.

    Going into his senior season, Brohm was widely expected to be the first overall draft pick in the 2008 NFL draft, but fell into the second round and has yet to get much of an opportunity with either Green Bay or Buffalo.

    The reconstructed offensive line features 3 White starters, down 1 from last year. Geoff Hangartner, in his sixth season out of Texas A&amp;M, is the center, while the two guard spots are held down by Andy Levitre and Eric Wood, both second year men. Wood was a first round draft pick out of Louisville in '09 but was injured his rookie season. Levitre was a second round pick.

    Backup guard Kraig Urbick is the only other White o-lineman on the roster.

    Jonathan Stupar, in his second season out of Virginia, begins the 2010 campaign as the starting tight end.

    The Bills had as many as 5 White players starting on defense a couple of years ago along with some White backups, but are currently down to just 3 Whites. Kyle Williams is that extreme rarity in the NFL, a White starting nose tackle. Even though Whites continue to utterly dominate contests measuring strength and stamina, the NFL all but shuts them out at a position characterized by strength and power, choosing instead to fill the league with morbidly obese "space fillers." A dozen defensive tackles were taken in the first three rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft, all of them black, and if recent history is any guide, most or all of them will be busts and "underachievers." Defensive tackle has become almost as "verboten" for Whites as running back and cornerback, even though Williams and Kelly Gregg of Baltimore are annually among the most productive tackles in the league.

    Chris Kelsay was moved during the offseason from end to outside linebacker. The Nebraska grad is now in his 8th season and is always productive.

    Paul Posluszny is a terrific middle linebacker, but the tackling machine's playing time was limited by broken arms in both 2008 and 2009, and he hurt his knee in the first game of 2010. Initial reports called it a mild sprain and that he might miss only two games.

    Just 10 of the team's 18 assistant coaches are White.

    NUMBER OF WHITE STARTERS: 8

    NUMBER OF WHITES ON 53 MAN ROSTER: 14

    GRADE: F+

    It seems like the Bills have blackened from a few years ago. They almost had a half white defense and now with Aaron Schobel gone it's back to black. What a shame!

    Buffalo has nothing to lose by giving Brian Brohm an extended opportunity. They're going nowhere this season as the weak link in a strong division. I've never read a goodexplanation about how Brohm went from being the likely first overall pick in the NFL Draft following his junior season at Louisville, to dropping to the second round in the draft, to never seriously being considered as an NFL starter after being drafted. From Weenieworld:

    Bills coach Chan Gailey admitted Monday that he considered benching Ryan Fitzpatrick for Brian Brohm in Week 4 against the Jets. "We were thinking about it," said Gailey. "I went and told Fitz that if we didn't get anything on that next to last drive that I was going to try to play Brian and get him some reps." This confirms that Fitzpatrick is on a short leash. The Bills are 0-4, so expect Brohm to get starts down the stretch.

    Almost every article I've read has mentioned that the Bills need to draft a quarterback in the 2011 draft. Many think they will draft either Jake Locker or Ryan Mallett if he declares. Brohm should be given some starts to see what he's made of. He only started one game in his short career.

    The truth is the Bills need a lot of things. They need better receivers. I don't see Lee Evans and Steve Johnson as quality receivers. C.J Spiller won't be anything special and I doubt he can be an every down back. I would expect Locker to struggle in Buffalo should he get drafted by them.

    Tyler Thigpen played well in Chan Gailey's offense a few years ago with the Chiefs, I see Jake Locker as that type of QB. He is an amazing athlete and has a great arm. I do hope Brohm plays well though, i met him briefly at a bar and he seemed like a down to earth guy.

    Pete Carroll adores thug-culture.

    Lynch has been in hot water for a hit-and-run, marijuana, having an unlicensed, loaded handgun, stealing money from the wife of police officer, and sexual assault / domestic altercations involving his former girlfriend. Sounds like a nice "kid."Â￾

    He's also perhaps the ugliest player in the NFL"¦.which, after seeing so many monstrously hideous faces and flabby bodies, is really saying something.

    This is the face of the modern student athlete at California? This is a school that traditionally was s doormat in the Pac 10 and had largely White teams, but had real students. What courses did this moron take while he kept his eligibility there? Marijuana smoking 101? [​IMG] [​IMG] Edited by: white is right

    Since Lynch signed his contract and got his big buck$, he has not done anything, football-wise. He's got the bucks and the bling, he can now fully embrace his thug culture, as is evident by his rap sheet (and we're not talking "music" here). Like so many highly-drafted and worshipped black athletes, he doesn't think he needs to work at his "craft" anymore, hence, he is a worthless underachiever. I don't expect that to change in Seattle. IMHO, the Bills did fabulously getting the 4th round pick for this guy. I doubt the "conditional" pick will amount to anything.

    I wonder if the Buffalo DWFs are screaming for Donte Whitner's head on a platter, which they certainly would be if he were White:

    Bills coach Chan Gailey defended SS Donte Whitner after Whitner allowed three touchdown passes in Week 7. Two of the TDs went to Todd Heap, who had scored once all season entering the game. "We're asking Donte to do a lot," explained Gailey. "When you ask a lot of a player, sometimes it's going to be good and sometimes it's not going to be good." Whitner has been awful in coverage all year, and not great in run support. It's a crime that George Wilson is riding the pine.

    If a few NFL teams would start moving toward noticeably Whiter defenses, say 6 starters, the way a number of teams have kept majority White offenses -- and do well -- the rest of the league might actually start drafting a little closer to merit when it comes to defensive players in order to keep pace, instead of continuously wasting draft picks on "projects" who rarely pan out. The number of highly drafted black busts on the d-line has climbed to ridiculous levels, and the black LBs taken high in the first round in '09 and '10 have been big busts to this point. The same is true in the backfield, where the few CBs that can actually cover well -- Revis, Bailey, Asomugha -- are easily distinguished from the many who are easily beaten time and again.

    The college season is half over, and not many draft-eligible black D-linemen are standing out.

    It's mainly the White minority that's kicking down doors and taking names.

    A few months ago, there was a piece at Cold Hard Football Facts wondering why there were so many high choices were busts. It said that players are scouted and evaluated more extensively than ever, but despite this, more high draft choices seemed to fail than in the old days. CHFF was especially perplexed by the huge number of flops in the defensive line.

    Well, it's a start. Perhaps the outstanding white D-linemen will now get drafted in the 5th or 6th rounds, instead of being UDFA. The blacks will still be drafted highly, because they have the "look" and the "tremendous upside", unlike their white teammates who have obviously "peaked" in their college years and it's all downhill from there.[​IMG]

    I have a feeling that this upcoming draft will look better for us, at least on the defensive side.

    How could it possibly get any worse on defense? If I remember correctly, Danny Batten and Erik Lorig were the only two white defensive linemen drafted.
