    So the current picture for Hamlin is he is sedated, prone, intubated and unable to breath on his own 😢

  2. ukfinfan says:

    Early days but seems like an improvement and trending in the right direction?

  3. Krishna says:

    Reminds me of my wife’s experience and can only imagine what it was like for stangerx…

    I DO know what it’s like to be on the other side of your loved one in this situation….it’s SCARY as shit.

    I like it, I’ve been reading the Master of Furies very slowly, but I like it


    Mike – I just felt that some of the prose was pretty rudimentary, almost like a first writer. But it’s been a long time since I read his earlier stuff, which I remember enjoying, so maybe I’ll go back and re-read them. It just took me a long time to get through the Firemane series, didn’t really grab my attention. I thought the Donte character was completely undeveloped, a throw in. Not even sure of his purpose in the story. Same for a lot of other characters.

    • Mike E. says:

      Donte was more important in the first book. I guess the spell that was on him from the sisters of the deep was a wild card, just a little drama as to whether he would kill Hatu or not

    Breath fully on his own

    They leave the breathing tube in until you can breath a certain percent on your own about 90%, but this is done to ct(there)a, so they don’t get sued as much as precautionary reasons

    He’s still at risk, but his status is much better than they’re leading on

    • ukfinfan says:

      Nobody official is saying much of anything right now, but this also concurs with what you said.

    • Ken says:

      He is still on a respirator at 50. Percent oxygen which is an improvement. Also they generally don’t like to keep you intubated as that runs a series of complications and side affects

  6. Brian in NY says:

    Dolphins signing Mike Glennon to the practice squad 😬

  7. boulderfinfan says:

    the way this season unraveled is really depressing. At one point they gave us more than 90% chance of making the playoffs. I wish I had bet against us then. Instead I picked us to win the superbowl lol.

    • ukfinfan says:

      This may be the most depressing Christmas day tweet ever. I’m sorry to depress you even further with it Boulder.

      • steveccnv says:

        I still like our chances compared to Pitt and NE

        Jets have been eliminated, so they’ll probably play like it’s the SB, something has to give with both on a streak of L5

  8. steveccnv says:

    What do we do next year at backup QB?

    Is Skylar’s hope dependant on what happens Sunday?

    Will Glennon be given a shot?

  9. Ken says:

    Not that I think it matters but

  10. CavalierKong says:

    I’m reading the Bengals will play week 18 like normal, but there is some talk about the Bills week 18 game might be postponed or the date/time shifted.

    • stangerx says:

      Why would they change the Bills game? Emotional trauma?

      • CavalierKong says:

        Yeah, basically that- the org and players are focused on Hamlin.

        I think it unlikely that game gets postponed, but this is uncharted waters, so who knows?

      • stangerx says:

        They have two Bills games to catch up on and everything is gonna be real messed up

    I DO know what it’s like to be on the other side of your loved one in this situation….it’s SCARY as shit.

    Krishna — I was in the same situation. I don’t remember 3 full weeks. But I came out of it and wasn’t a world class athlete. But you are right that Mary Ann was the one suffering the most. I was just dreaming and was going to either come out of it or slide into not. She was sweating every agonozing second.

  12. CavalierKong says:

    Here is some clarification:

    Sounds like as of now everything is moving forward, but they haven’t ruled out a postponement. I think it unlikely.

  13. Brian in NY says:

    Bills Pats to play as scheduled

  14. Brian in NY says:

    I think the Bills either throw out a clunker of a game or wipe the field with the pats . No in between.

  15. The Flying Pig says:

    Me if Mike Glennon plays and throws for 400 vs the jests

  16. So we have to beat the Jets and the Pats need to lose to the Bills for us to make the playoffs. Unbelievable.

  17. CavalierKong says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised if we lose to the Jest. They are a disaster offensively, but they have a solid defense and will probably rattle Thompson.

    It would be nice if our defense could just go out and win this damn game for us. Get a couple of turnovers and create some points. Hold them under 20 points.

    Even if the defense plays well, will the STs give up big field position multiple times? Will Sanders miss some big kicks? This fucking team…

  18. Come on Phins, beat the Jets and at least give yourself that chance. Not sure where the Bills heads will be at but if you’re playing the game, you have to do what you always do. Compete!

  19. The Flying Pig says:

    Some good news

  20. The Flying Pig says:

    Final game of the season

    I’m going with comeback pig as my avatar

    Let’s go!

  21. pheloniusphish says:

    I’m wearing my Zach jersey to the game Sunday.

  22. Mike E. says:

    Every game we played since SF I was basically asking the team to win to take control of their situation so we wouldn’t be in the position we’re in this week. Now we’re in this position with our 3rd string QB, and while he looked pretty good in preseason, sometimes against 2nd and 3rd teamers, and we saw him look good at the Fest game, although 1 million penalties negated that potential TD drive that went about 140 yards due to penalties. Then he injured his finger while throwing against a Vikings helmet, probably gored himself on a horn. lol

  23. Krishna says:

    Mike E., I agree. You take of your own business and you don’t need to worry about what anyone else does.

    FACTS: We haven’t taken care of business since 8-3.

    • Mike E. says:

      It’s crazy but it almost feels like backing in even if we blow out the Jets 40-0, because we still need the Bills to beat the Patriots. We could have done that last week ourselves, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. lol

  24. Krishna says:

    It IS backing in and I never want it that way…lol.

    • Mike E. says:

      It’s almost backing in. To me, truly backing in would be losing the game but still making the playoffs, but winning and needing help is a close second.

  25. ukfinfan says:


  26. Mike E. says:

    Krishna – No question. It’s a damn shame that we’ve allowed it to get to this point, needing the win and help.

    • ukfinfan says:

      And the bookies don’t even think we’ll win mike, let alone needing help!

      • Mike E. says:

        The Jets are in better shape with Mike White at QB than the Dolphins are with Skylar Thompson at QB

      • Mike E. says:

        Plus, it’s like I said, if you’ve lost 5 in a row needing to win to make the playoffs, and you’ve lost 5 in a row, why would anyone think you’ll win now?

      • ukfinfan says:

        I saw the Jets say they’d go with Zach ………….. we’ll see?
        It’s another game we should win, but likely won’t.

  27. ukfinfan says:

    Just saw this

  28. Krishna says:

    I can’t imagine the Bills playing to win this week….a family death or near death typically puts “life” and games in perspective

  29. CavalierKong says:

    I am going to be pissed if McDaniel is only given one year so we can try and woo Harbaugh or Payton. But Ross is a buffoon in a clown suit, so I don’t dismiss the possibility.

    • The Flying Pig says:

      Armando Salguelero has proven himself to lack any credibility multiple times

      But the least Ross can do, if it’s not serious, is make a public statement that McDaniel is our guy for 2023

      • CavalierKong says:

        I probably wouldn’t give it any credence at all with any other owner, except Ross has made an ass out of himself in exactly this manner multiple times, once already for Harbaugh even.

    ……………. that’s a pretty low bar then ………..

  31. The Flying Pig says:

  32. CavalierKong says:

    Fantastic news

  33. Wyoming85 says:

    not spam

  34. The Flying Pig says:

    Apparently the nfl is considering expanding to an 8 team playoff in response to the cancelled bills/bengals game

    I guess bc the cancelled game helps the chiefs solidify the 1 seed bye, they are considering taking away the bye by adding an 8th team


    • The Flying Pig says:

    • CavalierKong says:

      Wow, I never would have thought anything like that would be considered.

      Someone on the blog proposed something along those lines the other day (I think it was Son).

  35. CavalierKong says:


  36. CavalierKong says:

    So true, kudos to this guy. Even a minute or two could be the difference between the kid living a normal life and losing brain function.

  37. stangerx says:

    I don’t want to jinx it, but gotta like what Jack Baer of Yahoo Sports is selling.
    Among that group, only Thomas, Revis and Freeney are new entrants. Johnson, Ware and Hester were all first-time finalists last year, but none of them made the cut.

    Thomas figures to be the shoo-in of the group, as it’s hard to see a man who made 10 straight Pro Bowls with six first-team All-Pro selections and the NFL record for most consecutive snaps played missing out. Revis (seven Pro Bowls, four first-team All-Pros) probably isn’t far behind given the cultural cachet of “Revis Island.”

  38. steveccnv says:

    Do these people read what they write?

    Joe Buscaglia
    Jan 5, 2023
    Replying to @JoeBuscaglia
    “The Bills training staff who was with him immediately recognized this was not a run of the mill injury, and that they had a significant event on their hands.”

    What do you think tipped them off Joe?

    Could it have been the fact that he wasn’t breathing

  39. Krishna says:

    Just saw the updated Live news about Damar Hamlin….”substantial improvement”…

    • Krishna says:

      A huge amount of credit to the Bills’ trainers as first responders…started CPR immediately upon assessment and quick recognition….

    • Krishna says:

      EMRs on field, proximity to emergency hospital….it appears to be excellent job by NFL preparedness protocols league-wise down to team personnel….

      He is so fucking lucky….good deal

  40. Krishna says:

    Sorry, late to the news and posted before reading….great news for Hamlin, high kudos to the first responders…

  41. son of a son of a shula says:

    If we get the freaking 8th playoff spot instituted only moments before would you feel gratified?

  42. son of a son of a shula says:

    If Cincy won the other night then Chiefs, Bills and Bengals could have all finished 13-4 does anyone know who would be first if that happened?
    (Chiefs would have to lose Saturday, Bills and Cincy both win final games)

  43. Brian in NY says:

    Bills Bengals cancelled

    They may move the AFC Championship to a neutral site

  44. Wyoming85 says:

    not spam

  45. steveccnv says:

    NFL making retarded decisions again

    If Cin or Buff are in the AFC Championship game it will be played at neutral site

    KC has 3 losses Cin 4, why would they give Cin that advantage?

  46. New Age says:

    As terrible as we are, if Ross is even considering firing McD yet, he is worse than OD thinks he is. With that said, I would also consider dropping McD if after going 8-9, my next’ year’s plan included those two coordinators in the same spots. Considering rumors are floating, Ross has considered it though….

  47. Great news on Damar Hamlin. 🙂

    The real stars of that football game weren’t wearing pads.

    Absolutely. And whilst Kellington certainly saved Damar’s life, it also should be acknowledged that the NFL deserves some recognition. It has a lot of critics (myself included) but here are a few things I didn’t realise about the support available in-game.

    And lessons were learned from Christian Erikson’s experience which almost certainly contributed to Damar’s progress.

    One poster, in that thread I think it was, said this is all now part of the CBA. As it should be.

    Catching up on Twitter, it seems the consensus is if KC win on Saturday, and we back in, we’ll be rewarded with a trip to Buffalo. Without Tua, that’s a blood bath. With him, it’s probably just an early bath?

  49. Rockphin says:

    Hello everyone! I took a break and probably will not be on much going forward. I’m giving the NFL a rest. Tuned out since the Buff game and it has been nice not being driven crazy. F the NFL. Anyway, I heard this morning that the rights to the first 6 books of the Rift War Saga have been sold to a producer for development for TV. (Magician, Silverthorn, A Darkness at Sethanon, Daughter of the Empire; Servant of the Empire, Mistress of the Empire) and they have hired a writing team.

    I am excited, and like the people in the comments section of the link above I pray the don’t fuck the story like Amazon did to WOT or MTV did with Shanara

    • Rockphin says:

      Oh, and Happy New Year and best wishes to everyone.

    • steveccnv says:

      Pretty much feel the same

      We haven’t exactly played well the last 5 games, but the NFL didn’t do us any favors with the schedule or the way they had games officiated, the GB game was pretty bad

      Happy New Year Rock

  50. Mike E. says:

    Hey Rock! That’s pretty cool news! I also hope they don’t butcher it, but it’s still exciting to see the series come to the screen. Happy New year pal!

  51. CavalierKong says:

    The Riftwar Saga is a much less complicated story than WOT, and written very straightforward and simplistic. I could see that translating into a pretty decent tv series.
