    Bills hire Heath Farwell as ST coordinator

    So if you see staff, players, and now coaches - a long list (of which you can apparently add on to) - how can you say there's no pipeline?

    It's not just KB. There's Derek Anderson, Mike Tolbert (former), Star Lotulelei, Kaelin Clay (former), and Dean Marlowe. All off the top of my head. Beane followed McDermott from Carolina. And he went on to add his Carolina buddy Joe Schoen (who left for Miami before this season) and Dan Morgan (who is as Carolina as it comes). Perhaps it's a little overblown by fans and the media. But to say there hasn't been a pipeline or connection is to take it from one extreme to another.

    They should care. Optics are very important in sports, especially football. If it works, there's obviously no issue. But if it doesn't work - perception is reality. And the perception is that they appear to dependent on their former team and connections there.

    I owned the 'coaches' part in the last post, "slappy". Not sure what else you want. Or why you're singling me out when i'm far from the only person here (or in the media) pointing out that the Carolina/Ron Rivera connection gets reached out to often. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/01/15/heath-farwell-headed-to-bills-as-special-teams-coach/

    Specifically assistant coaches, correct. They haven't and I shouldn't have specified coaches. But overall with this team - you can't argue that there's in an inordinate amount of holes in Buffalo that seem to get filled by the Carolina Panthers pipeline. Even the national media picks up on it.

    No. If he's the best man for the job, he's the best man for the job. But they're a first time HC and a first time GM. It's a really bad look to consistently be reaching out to your former team for everything. They obviously don't care. If it works, it works. But when it doesn't (KB?), they look like they don't know what they're doing.

    The Quarterback Shuffle 2019

    The way I see it - he'll get the 2019 and 2020 seasons no matter what. I have faith Allen will be solid with a better line and better weapons. But if he fails in year three, you move heaven and earth to get to #1 in 2021 for Trevor Lawrence. That would be my plan.

    WR for this offense do you prefer the Bills target size or speed?

    I need size and speed. Obviously - a 6'5" WR generally doesn't get much faster than 4.5. But a 4.5 who runs routes well will have "good game speed". Being a tad slower than speed guys but having the ability to get higher and snag jump balls is more important than being fast as hell but a smurf.
  9. I just like that the timeframe matches up wherein if Josh isn't the guy after 3 seasons - Trevor Lawrence could be our next at bat.

    LAMP: My 20,000th Post

    I've been on this board for over 15 years and I have just under 1,700 posts. I can't imagine 20k in 6 years less time. Kudos to your ability to be social.

    What QB next year

    Josh Allen is your Franchise. Matt Barkley is the Backup. Derek Anderson is their Yoda. All are under contract. There's no need to do anything else to the QB situation in 2019. One could argue that they should have another young, developing guy instead of DA being essentially a coach using a roster spot. But that's what they chose to do. And you don't keep 4 on the active roster. Perhaps they bring in a 4th QB as an arm and in the event someone gets hurt in Training Camp. But you don't spend a draft pick for that. Let alone a 2nd or 3rd rounder.

    Charges dropped in Reuben Foster DV case

    This is like the 3rd time she's pressed charges and dropped them. How many times is the same woman going to get hush money from the same guy? This is nuts. And each time she recants and says 'I only did it because I love him and thought he would change'. Absolutely ridiculous.

    Kyles retirement probably puts DT as a possibility in round 1

    I think you're going to see most of our Offensive needs taken care of by Free Agency or Trade before the Draft. And you should never reach for someone based on need. So players like Ed Oliver were always on the table.

    I don't believe in the 3 year plan happening in '19

    I agree to an extent. The 2019 season is the final step in the rebuild. The team will be put in place - for all intents and purposes. But with so many moving parts, it's a lot to expect them to all come together in one season. I think 2020 is the year to expect to compete or heads will roll.

    These are Josh Allen's WRs...

    We have Cloud Strife? That's pretty sick.
