of course they were, but the narrative here is that they suck. 

 

Matthews has caught as WR 1 in Philadelphia, 85 passes from Bradford & Sanchez in 2015 and 73 passes from rookie Wentz in 2016. Granted, the total yardage could be better (11.7 YPR), but the guy can and does get open. it's just a matter of throwing him the ball. 

 

He was never their #1 target.

...so if he put up those numbers as a #2 or less, you wouldn't kiss his twin cheeks?......may need a GPS helmet in Bflo though and Goodell may not approve...............

I'd do a lot of McDermott style clapping for him, but you're asking a bit too much.

...I guess what bugs the hell outta me is that at some point, try being riverboat gamblers with the personnel you have.....I'm STILL choking on Losman's proclamation, "wait 'til you see when we open this thing up" under the OC tutelage of Steve Foulchild...and Stillborn Steve did not deliver....AVP?....right.....the OBD historical parade of OC's since Marchibroda is sad......not even Waste Management would pick any of 'em up on Monday......I'd rather see TT's stat line read 25/35 for 342 yds, 4 TD's and 2 INTS in a losing effort...it gives me MORE hope than I've had since Kelly era.....at least we know the offense is NOT on life support...............

It's all part of the "tank". The week before the Matthews trade, Matthews was looking like he lost his job in Philly. He was on his way out. Bean and McD got together, agreed to tank, but McD's reputation is built on Defense. He likely ensured the Defense looked good so his reputation was still solid. Think about it. McD has been running good Defenses under Defensive minded HCs or an assistant D Coach. In Philly, he was under Jim Johnson as the assistant. After McD replaced Johnson, he only lasted two years until Ried, uncharacteristically, fired McD. Then he goes to Carolina under Defense HC Ron RIvera. So far, McD has only been good under Defensive minded HCs. So if this whole HC thing goes south, he has to ensure he will be hired again as a DC somewhere. So far he is doing a great job with the Defense, but so was Schwartz with similar players. Rex just jacked it all up. Matthews will be a FA next year and will likely head somewhere else. The Offense will be in complete rebuild next year, with a new QB, new WRs and maybe even a new RB.

Not a coincidence when you are bad at hiring people to run your team. It's incompetence, not coincidence.

Not really, The Bills passing game has sucked under Tyrod, 28th in 2015 and 30th last year. I know I will see how "Great our running game was though", but this is a passing league.

WCO, as most know, you need a QB that with take the ball on the snap and sling it to a WR in the center of the field within a couple of secs. TT is not built for this offense at all.  I still don't get is why they let Watkins go as he is built for quick slant passes and he def gets separation quickly when I seen him play healthy?

Oh, i just love it...............the coaching staff brings in has-beens and nobodies for our WR's and then complains when they aren't doing their job well enough.

 

Yep, sounds about right.
