The principle I was defending was getting your best people in place before the draft. The Indy GM was hired in January and ran the draft. Our GM came in after the draft. The GM is more important and you want your best personnel guys working together. If you like the new hires you will have to admit they played no role in the last draft.


Why don't you just admit you were wrong?

Sounds like you should make that a t-shirt and wear it. Because you defend every scheme and shiny object Russ Brandon has ever sold.

Is Mahomes coming with him?  :rolleyes:

I wonder if anyone in the Buffalo media will get a chance to ask Allen his thoughts on that move from a talent perspective.

Why would I bet against Tyrod being here? You have a defensive head coach trying to Jauron his way to wins.

I understand what you are saying and you can make the argument that Whaley should have been let go with Rex forcing the Bills to find another GM. Since Pegula let everyone go, he would have been crazy to do that before the draft. I think McD and Whaley worked together on the draft getting players McD wanted. I dont think Beane can complain about coming to a situation where he has two first round picks next year. Just because Indy did it in Jan doesnt mean that the Bills are wrong with the path they chose.

Impossible. If you read here, the Bills suck, how we hire personnel suck and no one worth a damn wants to work for us...  *sarcasm off*

No, everything the Bills do is great, everyone wants to work here and every player wants to play here

That is a basic statement. Who would argue that? Your constant banter from the negative without facts to back you up, apparently now even making stuff up at times, does get tiresome. That is the main thing under scrutiny right now. Admitting when you are wrong also seems to be an m.o. of yours as well. Work on it.

Work on yourself. If you can't understand basic sentences then that is on you.

Genius bud. I did understand the sentence, and provided a basic retort. Don't you get tired of being a downer? Seems like a sad way to live.

Here. This should be more up your alley. John Murphy and Donald Jones will serve you some Koolaid just the way you like it.

What, Fire Chan doesn't want any of this either?

 

Can't I at least get an "You're an idiot" blast from DC Tom?

 

This thread has devolved into nonsense.

Kool Aid? I was just looking for actual facts surrounding a well-hired front office to-date. You were looking for an argument with false truths as your backing. The consistency in your belief regarding the order in which the hiring was done is admirable, but at the same time sad. You have had numerous far more knowledgeable posters than you give you fact, which you continue to ignore, regarding the majority of organizations and the way in they handle front office shake-ups.
I'm all for discussion and takes from both sides, but this point should be moot.
