      Problems logging in?   11/05/2017

      I know a few people are getting logged out too quickly. I don't have the answer to that yet.   However, one change that occurred is that there is no longer a log in name and a separate display name. The upgrade discarded the log in name and now uses the display name. So, to log in:   Username: <display name> Password: <your password>   If you need to contact me to find out what your display name is use: Contact Us  and we can get things sorted out.

I was wrong about....

Even though our coach won’t admit when he made a mistake I thought it would be fun to admit our mistakes. The point of this thread is to take one point that you were adamant about from the offseason or in season that you regret having. And now for the walk of atonement:

 

I thought that Frank Reich would be a terrible hire for HC. I thought that it would be a lazy, sentimental hiring for an unqualified candidate. He was maybe my least favorite candidate. He’s done a phenomenal job this year and looks to be high on team’s radar this offseason. In hindsight, he might have been the perfect guy!! I was completely wrong about it and sorry to you Frank Reich. I will not doubt any of the Super Bowl Bills.

I said earlier in the season that this defense was miles better than Rex's and they are more disciplined than the last 2 seasons. I was wrong. Also thought Peterman would be able to come in and light it up. Although the Oline didn't help him out once so ever, I was still wrong.

First the good: I was wrong about Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde. I thought they were at best average safeties. 

Now the bad: I was wrong about McBeane's "plan." I thought it was a covert rebuild - basically the start of a from-the-ground-up complete redo with a little window dressing (bringing Tyrod back, signing a few journeymen). Now I think it just seems like lack of a plan. The "process" is whatever McD and Beane feel like doing this week.

I was wrong to think that bringing in Peterman would solve our problems........

 

The idea was that Peterman is a "faster gun" and would read the defenses faster,  and release the ball faster.

It may be true that he's faster than TT,  but not fast enough for this dreadful O Line.

And that meant that the DLine was on the field more, and that didn't work either.

 

I thought we were one guy away from the promised land.............boy, was I wrong...........

I was wrong about the Bills being a 4-win team.  Other than that, everything I thought about this team and its players has been spot on.

I'm never wrong.  Just ask my alter ego. 

 

I was wrong in drinking the KoolAid whenthe D was actually good and believing that TT could save the season by becoming a passing QB.

Definitely wrong about Poyer. Thought he'd be a liability, happily surprised.

 

And in light of recent events, I was apparently wrong about Dennison & Tyrod. Still kinda feels like a knife in the back... I really want to know what happened to the plays I was hearing about.

I was wrong about Peterman. He's even worse than I thought. :sick:

I was wrong to think that there can't possibly be that many people stupid enough to think they can assess a rookie QB based on his first 30 minutes of meaningful football - yet most of those same people think that, after 6 years in the league and 40 starts for the Bills, that the jury is still out on Tyrod Taylor's ability to be a decent NFL starter.  :blink:

I was wrong about the Bills being a 5 win team( which came down from 6 after the Watkins trade) . In Bills fashion, they still have a draft ruining win or two left in them.

I didn’t foresee Peterman sucking on such a monumental scale.

I was wrong about Gilmore. I was convinced he would be an all-pro in Belichik’s D.

You were FAR from alone Yolo. I would guess that many would still refer to him as a "shutdown corner" and a "good draft selection."

I posted a prediction of 4 wins and worse, I was outraged when a poster said they would finish with the 15th pick in the 2018 draft. I was sure they would be in the top 5. I apologize to the poster. The Bills cannot even do a good job of losing.
