For once, I am PROUD of what the Bills accomplished!

SCREW the draft gurus, we got OUR MAN and picks. For once I am almost at peace with those in the front office. We'll see by the end of the day who else was on the radar. I like the bold swing for the fences approach and if this is the draft, I think this attitude will carry over into the season. And I LOVE that attitude.
Go BIG or go home. No more tentative adjustments, vanilla game plans, reactive moves to what someone else does to them. The Bills WIILL SET the tone and dictate THEIR GAMEPLAN. And I'm at peace with that, WIN or LOSE.
If you lose and left your balls on the field there is no shame. Losing tentative is what bothers me. We will not lose tentative this year and THAT is what earns my money and support. The fuse has been lit on this fan! Now let's start a fire!

Don't get me wrong, I think Nix should have been fired with Gailey... but I like the new coaching hires and going out on a limb and getting the highest upside QB in this draft. Just because it isn't last years draft doesn't mean all these QBs are going to be garbage, no body honestly knows.

Victorymedia, i see what you see. Somehow the Bills look competent recently.
And to your point, decisive and commited. A change of culture may be upon us.
Let's enjoy it.
have fun tonight folks

Not at all. Once they traded back and offset the risk I was perfectly OK with whomever they chose to be QB. All I wanted was for them to offset the risk some in this years QB class. Why not go with the guy with the most upside.
To be honest I've enjoyed our last 4 drafts. Hindsight 20/20 will always reveal a woulda coulda shoulda, but overall we're are without a doubt drafting better then decade before IMO

Getting him a round or two earlier than his projected slot means nothing. Considering who ever they could or would have picked has the exact same potential at being a bust at 16. It's all on coaches shoulders now it will define his time with the team.
As much as I pound on Nix's GM personnel decisions, at least this move wasn't absurd like the TJ Graham move last year. When they clearly could have got him later.
The only downside will be putting EJ in before he's ready. Should Kolb or whoever starts stink it up at the beginning of the regular season, and the vocal fan base call for EJ. And they will.
It was interesting seeing the shock on Polians face and his reaction too the pick. Especially since many wanted him as the Bills GM again as recently as 3-4 months ago. Safe to say the pick would have been different.

You made the trade and targeted players for the Bills? You watched it on TV. You had nothing to do with the draft. Nobody knows how they did and won't know for years. Settle down.

Buddy and the Bills Organization can say whatever they want. The truth is, they have given us every indication(13 straight years without the playoffs) that they don't have a clue what they are doing, so why should I get excited over their selection of a quarterback in a poor quarterback class? Don't get me wrong, I'll root for the Bills and Manuel, but in no way am I confident that Buddy and the Bills front office got it right...
I believe the 2012 Draft was our first since a number of changes were made to the scouting department. Our catch in 2012 doesn't look bad at all so far- Gilmore, Glenn, Bradham and Brooks. There's reason for optimism.
