Good sign. The opposite of Rex "the mouth" Ryan.


Rex and Trump could be great friends

It's not uncommon for Irish American men to be very quiet, subdued, mild mannered and calm.

The only thing I hate about the Internet is how difficult it is to detect if something is meant as sarcasm.

He's busy planning for the season. He don't have time for jumping out of planes, painting his truck, and eating doggie snacks.

Shhhhhhhh!

Don't say that too loud. He might find or create a cabinet spot for him in Washington :cry:

If Whaley has any sense, he admits his mistake and fires McDermott after the draft.

And not always sober!  :D

 

How anyone can drink Guiness is beyond me? 

 

It is actually very simple:

1. Order a tankard of Guiness

2. Drink it

3. Repeat until wallet is empty

 

Was that hard?

Isn't it refreshing?

exactly, keep grinding coach.

 

McDermott is the first coach I have liked in a really long time. If we can get him the players we might have a another Marv on our hands.

Please keep this thread in mind the next time you read a story citing unnamed sources saying the Bills are keeping, cutting, trading or signing anyone.

We haven't heard a word from him in the media or from the Bills site which often does the interviews, etc. with Chris Brown. i wonder if he will be made available at the combine. Has WGR even gotten an interview with him since his press conference?

doesnt have time for the idiots

I just want to remind everyone that Dick Jauron was invisible as well.
 
While it may be refreshing that McD is not a media whore like his predecessor, none of this means a damn thing.

I loved rex's personality, his optimism and his interviews.

His attention to detail was sub par, but he loved his players and they loved him.

Personally I dislike the quiet type head coaches like Bowles, Belicheat and who can forget our own skeletor Jauron. I think enthusiasm and optimism, combined with an outgoing personality is a great thing for any leader or manager.

Eh, I've seen plenty of introverted leaders/managers that do very well and also plenty of extroverted managers that are all back-slapping and glad-handing and have zero brains behind any of it. The key either way is a good head on your shoulders and knowing how to motivate people.

Yup, and being genuine.  Everybody can spot a poser.

Agree about quiet coaches.  But McDermott is not a coach whose personality we know yet.  We just know that he isn't talking right now, which to me isn't a bad thing.  Talk when there's something to discuss.  I'm sure we'll hear from him in a few weeks, combine/FA time.

I prefer personality over the Jauron's and Belicheck's of the world, but if they win I will take whatever they are.  All about the wins at the end of the day.

we must note players loved jauron, though. Likely more than Rex.

He's busy designing the Bills wrap for his truck.

 

You know, I never understand these kinds of comments.

 

Am I the only one who remembers how fired up most people were when Rex rolled out that truck? Or when he pressed to build a bully? Or when he jumped around sidelines after the first time he beat the Jets?

 

Anyone remember how much fun that was?

 

No. It seems like whenever someone leaves the team, we need to pick a number to piss on them. Makes no sense.

Jauron did more with less than Rex.

But I agree this stuff is overblown either way. If you win, no cares about your approach. Rex was just so delusional.

I was thinking there has to be an obese idiot McDermott brother out there somewhere, right? I mean, this whole "I'm the anti-Rex" thing can't be 100% true. So I looked, and guess what? He is the anti-Rex! His brother:
