Bills Hire Puppet as GM

By Steve

All hail king McDermott, who is more powerful in Pegula tower, Sean "dougy" McDermott or Jack Eichel? Jeez.

Brandon Beane, some Panthers flake is the new general manager. Is he qualified? Probs. Is he a puppet of McD? Of course. Here's Terry's statement:

""During our search for a new General Manager, Brandon stood out to Kim and I as he embodies the type of leader and type of person we want in our organization. Brandon has excelled in a variety of roles for a Panthers team that has consistently competed at a high-level in this league. We feel his vast understanding and experience in many facets of football operations will be invaluable to our club moving forward. We also believe his vision for the Buffalo Bills combined with his detailed approach will help build a foundation for sustained success. We are pleased to welcome Brandon and his family to Buffalo.""

142-145-1
Thats the record of the Panthers since Carolina hired Brandon Beane. Guy doesnt even have his own wikipedia page. Is that consistently competed at a high level?

How is Sean McDermott qualified to be the coach hire the GM and basically run an entire franchise? Does Terry Pegula have any clue what so ever what he is doing? This seems like an odd and foolhardy decision to empower an complete unknown.

This isnt a horrible hire in that Beane will (seemingly) be able to work well with the head coach which is much more ideal than previous arrangements around here. The main question is McDermott. And we will get that answer after about 8 games.

Wait was he hired because he has the same name as Russ Brandon? Food for thought.

Bills Fire GM Doug Whaley, Meh

By Steve

Can the Buffalo Bills fire their general manager and ambivalence prevails? Evidently.

Terry Pegula is the figuritive definition of incompetence. Why wasnt Whaley fired in January? Why does Russ Brandon survive like a cockroach in a nuclear hellstorm?

The Sean "douggy" McDermott show folks! He looks ok right now but it can (and will) turn ugly quick, especially at OBD.

What makes McD qualified to basically run a franchise? His interview must have been awesome! (Just like LaFontaine, Rex, Murray, Bylsma, Nolan etc. etc)

When Terry started taking over franchises around here like well connected developers in the fruit belt bought up city land he said he never fired anyone in his life. That didnt last long. Christ.

Why would anyone ever accept a job around here?

Then again Whaley was bad at his job. The Watkins trade was truly one of the worst imaginable. EJ was a disaster he never owned up too and his inability to conduct a coherent press conference was baffling.

He made a lot of good moves but he made more that were crippling. Did he hire the head coaches? Is he solely to blame for anything (besides the Watkins trade)?

DOES ANYTHING AROUND HERE MAKE SENSE?

Thanks for the memories and the mediocrity, I dont care.

Buffalo Bills Draft Pitt QB Nathan Peterman

By Steve

With their second 5th round pick the Bills go quarterback Nate Peterman. Originally was the QB at Tennessee but transfered to Pitt
6'2 225.

"

What he does best:

Not necessarily a pure/smooth thrower, but possesses a quick release.
Consistent footwork. Plays with a good base in control and throws on balance.
Great understanding of defensive recognition and where to go with the ball with the given passing scheme.
Good ball placement on short/intermediate timing routes.
Anticipates windows in zone very well.
Sees the field clearly. Consistently shows the ability to get through progressions, eliminating a read quickly and moving on to the next with relative ease.
Great overall feel and discipline in the pocket.
Athletic within the pocket and can burst to pick up key third downs with his legs.
Biggest concerns:

Arm is limited.
Doesn’t possess natural power to drive the ball. Needs to coil up to gain zip.
Ball tends to finish low on the receiver the further down the field you get.
Lacks pocket poise at times tending to bail out right when unnecessary.
Feet can get a little frenetic when facing pressure.
Inconsistent decision making outside of the pocket or late in the down at times.
Bottom line: Peterman has seen his stock rise the more people find out about him. He is a very solid, steady player with a limited ceiling – but shows a great understanding of the passing game. His arm is just OK, but with his ability to see the field clearly and work through progressions combined with his natural feel in the pocket, he has a chance to develop into a middle of the road starter. He played in a system with a lot of jet sweep gimmicks, but has experience under center and working full field progressions in both the drop back and play action pass game. Peterman can step in and be a backup on most teams right now, with the hopes there can be tweaks with a few things mechanically and as he gets older to gain more strength in his arm."

Weak arm? Yikes

Bills Trade Up Draft WR Zay Jones

By Steve

The Bills moved up 7 spots in a trade with the Rams to take East Carolina WR Zay Jones the fourth WR taken in the draft.

The Bills gave up their later 3rd rounder but got a 5th back. Not bad, they took who they wanted but this guy better be good.

Grade B-

Bills Draft CB TreDavious White LSU

By Steve
Love it

Bills get an extra first round pick an extra 3rd round pick and a consensus first round talent.

Senior from LSU who is as about as dynamic a returner as you can get. Fits perfectly with McDermott defense

Grade
A

2017 NFL Draft Preview: Bills Predictions

By Steve

So Doug Whaley is on his way out yet the only one that has a clue how to run a draft. Sean "dougy" McDermott is enboldened but has zero credibility building a roster. And drafting 10 means just about ANYTHING is possible this year. Great!

Will McDermott go defense because thats all he knows or will hubris reign supreme and he goes offense because he thinks he can build a defense with anyone?

Here's part one Bills needs
Part two quarterback hot taeks
Part 3 mock draft reviews
Part four MOCK DRAFT

Time to predict:

Ill dream of OJ Howard falling to the Bills but it aint happening. The pick will be Marshon Lattimore (unless a top 2 safety drops) -steve

Hasson [sic] Reddick -katman

Haason Reddick DE/OLB Temple -schrum

Deshawn Watson -wreck

Trade up for OJ Howard -coast
