He wasn't tagged. That's a fact! You can disagree with their not tendering but they made a decision not to. That is an indication that he wasn't in their plans.
I believe that the new regime came in with a strategy of rebuilding the roster and undoing the work of Whaley and Rex. In my view they are at least three years away from being a playoff team. This is what happens when you haven't had a franchise qb for a quarter century, and this is what happens when you take a patchwork approach building a roster for the sake of striving to be a fringe playoff team. The primary method of accomplishing this endeavor is through the draft. So don't be surprised when assets are sold off for picks.
Undoing the work by Whaley... I didn't realize that meant ridding themselves of really good football players just because Whaley drafted them.
The asinine philosophy of changing things that work and trading/not resigning good football players will result in Beane and McDermott starting their tenures here with AT LEAST two straight losing seasons. All of which could/could have easily be avoided if these guys adapted their scheme to the players here and not scrap young talent for UNKNOWN draft picks.
This team could've easily competed for the playoffs and made the playoffs this year which would've been beneficial for EVERYONE involved(fans, GM, coach, owner). Instead we are sure to lose more then win the next couple years, because these new guys are smarter then everyone....per the norm with a new hire in Buffalo before it blows up in their face.
