With the season over again, its time to look for whats ahead. For most of us this time a year, we spend our times on Mock draft sites, looking at future college prospects and trying to figure out who would be best for our team. We usually don't bother talking about FA because most of the time we are not competitive in that area. FA becomes more of a dream to most of us as we throw around names like Vincent Jackson and Mario Williams.
The bigger deal here is regarding our very own. We have seen plenty of former Bills go on to have great careers. A bunch of them are still in the hunt for the Superbowl...and former coaches. You guys know the names I don't have to tell you. My question is, are we about to let go another future star? Whether you like him or not, Stevie is an up and coming talent. He is quietly become one of the best WR in the game. No, he is not the fastest guy, but he is elusive and gets open. I wen't to a bunch of games this year, and watching his route running was fun. He is better the Lee Evans ever was. Lee was just a very fast guy that could run fade and Go routes. He had to capabilities after the catch. Stevie has all of this and more. I hear a lot of people say "get rid of him, he is a clown." But can we really afford to loose him? We do not have another sufficient starter at the position...Drafting a WR in the first round has proves to be very risky. And its likely the guy wouldn't come in and be a star. Blackmon is probably your only sure fire thing and he will be long gone before we pick. Bottom line, we "NEED" to keep Stevie. However, I don't believe the Bills will retain him. If he walks, it will once again leave me scratching my head asking the question I always ask..."does this franchise really care about winning?" I really have liked what Nix has done. His last draft was probably the best out of all the drafts last year, or at least in the top 5. I wan't to hope we are going in the right direction, but if they let Stevie walk, I will really question them...We were ok to give Fitz 60 million. I would much rather have that money going to Stevie as of right now. Time will tell, but I have a feeling they let him walk. Your thoughts?
