About that Diggs trade

My argument against the Diggs trade

First of all, never listen to the so-called football analysts. Theirs is no more than a guess.

Then we have Bean's explanation, which comes across as the main speaker at a funeral. He tells us how hard this decision was and that it was certainly not made overnight. He continues to express how this will benefit the team in ways we are uncertain about.

The deal as we know it:

The Buffalo Bills are trading Diggs to the Houston Texans along with a 2024 6th-round pick (No. 189 overall) and a 2025 5th-rounder in exchange for a 2nd in 2025, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported on Wednesday, per sources informed of the situation. The Bills have since announced the deal.

The initial reaction was disbelief, which was soon followed by acceptance and a rational explanation:

He was a cry baby

Couldn't get over himself

Lost his touch

Not what he was

so long see ya.

What Diggs brought to the team:

He was named to the pro ball in all four seasons in Buffalo

Held many season records for the Bills with receptions

With Allen brought the team into contention

What's lost here, what you don't understand:

Diggs was a potent threat, and just by being on the field and running down the field, he always directed a double team. His presence will be missed.

Peterka, Thompson and Tuch are fire

Too little, too late but it’s fun to see JJ take a big step forward. As for Skinner . . . meh

Tuch has had challenging season

The veteran winger is part of the Sabres mediocrity, taking a big step backward to help them miss the playoffs.

‘A diva on the decline’

The Bills dumped Stefon as he came over the top of the hill and headed to the bottom.…
