i mean they have to field a team of players. it's in those players' hands. 

Correct.  But all mgmt needs to do is trade players like Watkins, Shady, Wood and the team they field is not likely to do well.

Great, another thread on tanking. Any Bills and Sabres fans here ever want a winning team or just a lot of draft picks?

 

When you haven't made the playoffs in 17 years why not try something new like "Tanking"??? You mean things could get worse???

have you sat through consecutive seasons of 2-14, 2-14 and 4-12? Yes, it could get much worse

What happened AFTER those seasons?

 

Oh, that's right. The longest protracted era of success in Buffalo, that's what.

 

DO IT.

As a matter of FACT, I most certainly have. I saw my 1st game at the Old Rockpile, so you need not bring up this teams putrid history to me. I have seen it all. I was at "The Stadium in Orchard Park" when it first opened. I still have that ceremonial fake coin they distributed to us all at that 1st game. So what's your point??? 2-14 sounds like a good record for the Bills this season. Good as in giving the Bills a good shot at one of those young QB's we hear so much about. I'd be very happy to see that happen. Much better than 6-10 or 7-9....

A borderline 30 year old RB with a lot of miles on him, we wouldn't get more than a 3rd rounder for him. I'd be shocked if we got a 2nd.

The side benefit to trading Shady to Tampa Bay is that we play them this year and probrably guarantees that the Bills lose that game....

My point is that it is difficult to come back from those kinds of seasons....fans stop attending games, buying merchandise, people stop caring....and it's very depressing and not much hope watching a team lose that much.
