really?that does not make sense.. why wouldnt you hire people that you are familiar with? why would you hope that they hire people they no nothing about?  OMG!

Sorry Dwight. It was meant as sarcasm to the kneejerk reaction that hiring anyone you're familiar with is automatically cronyism.  We're on the same page.

Yeah. I was really hoping they would hire a bunch of people they know nothing about.

If the plan is to hire people they know to fill vacancies, then I completely agree.  They definitely have a plan.


This post is so Bills fansy.

All of these moves seem to have been done In The Heat Of The Night.  Good job, Bills.

Not in the Heat Of The Moment?

Permission to make a connection between the Summer of 69 and OJ Simpson, sir?

The house cleaning at OBD makes me wonder what it would take to get a house cleaning at TBN? :)

Think the Pegulas want to invest in something new? Yeah, didn't think so.....

I don't know why I get so excited with every guy we hire, since I have little to no idea who they are. But to me, this just has a better feel than previous years. It won't be fast or easy, but I find it encouraging.

Obviously, surrounding yourself with experienced personnel will hopefully pay dividends, but it won't earn you wins. Ultimately, the players can only do that. One can only hope that the right players are placed on the roster that can break through and concur all the way to multiple playoff appearances and Super Bowl wins.

Hopefully, we are what the Pats used to be post Bledsoe. A team built to last and earn respect.

So Marvin Allen took a demotion (from Director of College Scouting to National Scout) to come here?  Hmmm...wonder what the story is here.

I do have a litte insight into this. Before y'all hate on me. I'm aware it means nothing in the W-L column. The Bills are absolutely on their way.

Please forgive me, but this is straight from the heart.. I haven't been this optimistic since the summer of '69.
......I'll let myself out.

When he is scouting a good team's DL he likes to say "I see monsters".

I think I remember reading that Marvin's contract was not renewed with the Chiefs.
