Somehow the idea that the Bills just fired their entire scouting staff (17 people except for two in personnel) does not seem concerning to most people but I am worried that it is a huge deal, a huge hole.
When has a team fired their entire scouting staff?
You can't just out source college and pro scouts to India or the Philippines (for example). A team needs a trusted network of them, people that have relationships with the coach, GM and other team officials. Trusted scouts are the worker bees that help build a successful team's foundation.
Most likely McD and the Beane have relationships and connections to some Scouts and will succeed in bringing them to the Bills- but it will not be enough.
I know that the previous scouts should be accountable in part for the lack of the team's success.
But what the heck are they going to do next year? Rely on Mayock, McShay and Walter Football?
This is a big deal!
