Moeaki is the most talented receiver at TE that Buffalo has possessed since Keith McKellar and Pete Metzelaars. He is also the most brittle since Mike Caussin. Nice effort to improve the team, but with if he was a thoroughbred he'd have gone to Purina a couple years ago. I'm guessing a cheaper variation on the Merriman Impact. Hope I'm wrong.

Choice, I loved as third back. I still think he's the best 3rd RB in the league, even though he is currently making calls for work. I get why they did it, and I get that a mediocre coaching staff does this sort of thing as soon as they know they won't be hitting the playoffs.

You and I have disagreed over Choice. To me, he's a worker bee with limited talent, average strength and no burst. I shouldn't think it would be hard to find someone who does what he can do.

I think I agree with both of you. He was totally fine as a 3rd back, but is not that difficult to replace.

Bills still likely make the playoffs at 8-8. It's just massively less likely they hit 8-8 now, though. :-(

I just don't like it when good citizens who help the team be a team get the shaft. My reaction is probably tinted by my feelings toward Morrone and Cabana Boy.

That said, many teams do not have a competent third back. Some have specialists, and some have guys who suck. Give the brittleness of Jackson and SPiller, it was nice having a guy who can play any down and situation. I remember the days when the third option was Shaud Williams.

You think this will have a negative impact on the locker room this weekend (tacked on to the vibe from totally chucking a W in the waste bin last week)?

I don't think so. The players did their thing the next day when Jackson and Spiller wore hos jersey in practice, and Morrone handled it well by not nbeing bothered by it, even when asked.

I think the guys who are the most put out are also the most able to deal with it.
