Yeah he did well today in his first start. With some work,he could be a good RT for years to come. I really wish the Chiefs would have taken a look at him...

Did you see the whole game?

I just got to see the last few minutes and the OT, and I thought Jamon looked really good, handling Pace with ease.

Colin Brown was too valuable.

Oh, and there's no one else on this team who we could afford to cut to pick him up. We're too close to wait on a project.

:::looking at his watch:::

Yep, took around 4 hours after the Chiefs win for people to start bitching about Pioli again.

I'm with you on Jamon. There is SOMETHING WRONG with this picture. SOMETHING. We don't know what, but a kid that good, that athletic just doesn't get the "no interest" like that without a reason.

The "riddle" as to why Jamon Meredith was so "radioactive" continues. The kid has it on the field.

Pretty close to the whole game and he did. He has something he needs to work on like his foot work for example. Overall though he did very well.

Pretty good player for a guy they basically got for free.

just about every team's fans were probably screaming for Meredith. I know I was. Anytime a guy slips like that...fans are going to want him for value. I just can't believe some people refuse to get over it. Green Bay pulled the trigger and still didn't put him on their 53-man roster. It's no different than Gabe Watson, Winston Justice, Jimmy Williams, Rodrique Wright....etc.

Gabe Watson was a motivation issue, as was Justice. But neither was free, in fact Justice was a high second.

Jimmy Williams was just the most overrated DB in NFL Draft history, nevermind his 'tude. He simply could not turn and accelerate for corner, and wasn't smart and heady for safety.

Rod Wright was a shoulder surgery case. Good player with injury concern.


Meredith checks out on the field. He isn't an injury case. He is cut and in great shape, so its not a motivational issue. I really don't know. I've read some comments like "locker room lawyer" that made me scratch my head... there is SOMETHING out there. I just can only guess what it is.

This isn't Darryl Harris where nobody knows who he is. Every NFL team has known who Meredith was since he started as a Freshman.

Well maybe you ought to e-mail Pioli on the Josh Looney show and ask Scott why we didn't pick up a much needed talented O-lineman like Meredith? But my guess is that they would not take a tough question like this:shrug:

Locker room lawyer - always stirring the pot in the negative way on the team. Defending the undefensable especially with authority figures. And it could be as simple as drugs and alcohol.

" The Bills' offensive line, which featured four first-year starters, held its own against the Jets. The front five allowed one sack and a few pressures, but it didn't get overrun like a lot of people thought would happen.

So for one game at least, an offensive line featuring three rookies (right tackle Jamon Meredith and guards Eric Wood and Andy Levitre), a second-year player (left tackle Demetrius Bell) and a "grizzled" five-year pro (center Geoff Hangartner) can take a bow for a job well done.

"I thought the whole line did a good job," Bills offensive line coach Sean Kugler said. "They prepared all week and they work hard all the time. I knew that they were going to have some rough spots and some rough edges. But [Sunday] I thought they competed the entire game."

"They found out what it's like to win a game just fighting the whole time. That was a good learning experience for them. They're really a great group to work with."

The offensive line has been a major issue since the start of the season. Wood and Levitre were already starting when the Bills decided to cut veteran left tackle Langston Walker and replace him with Bell.

But there has been a revolving door at right tackle. Meredith was the fourth starter at the position already this season as he took over for Jonathan Scott, who had a sprained ankle.

"I was excited for the opportunity to play," Meredith said. "I worked hard to be ready for this, and I just wanted to come in and compete and show that I could play at this level."

From what Kugler saw with the naked eye, he had no complaints about Meredith's performance.

"I give all the credit to [assistant offensive line] coach [Ray] Brown," Kugler said. "When Jamon came from Green Bay, Coach Brown spent a lot of time with him in the meeting rooms and on the field. We sat down and talked about [it] and Ray said, "We've got something in this kid.' "

We kind of took a chance and really felt like he could do the job. Coach Brown believed in him and he just went out and did a heck of a job, as did the rest of the guys up front."
