Bills hire Terry Robiskie as WR coach

Recommended Posts

Terry Robiskie? How old is that guy? I remember him coaching the Raiders in, something like, the early 80's. We're talking Jim Plunkett and Marcus Allen years. Dang, he's old. Can WR coaches us walkers on the sidelines?

Yeah his son played at Ohio State about 10 years ago. I think he and Daboll may have overlapped with the Browns. Going to check. 

 

Nope - he left in 06, Daboll got there in 09

I tried to find information on Jimmy Robinson and the only information that popped up on Google was for a retired WR coach (Giants, Pack and Cowboys).  Was this the guy interviewed?

I think it's good to have some old timers on the staff. Different perspectives are good imo

I always believe in an experienced coaching staff. Mix in some youth, but experience is always a plus.

He was an excellent route runner, slowed up by the sandals. Once in a while ball would sail right through his hands too.

I honestly trust you on this matter.
Having the correct footwear really is on his trainers though. Can't take all the blame for those missed opportunities. sht happens

That was his second sport. He was unstoppable in water polo.

Yes sir..outside of the linebacking crew,this corps really needs to improve.However,with the the new OC in,I wonder if OBD has plans to add a top quality TE instead of a deep threat with one of the 4 first and second round picks? Either way..we need a lot more than just KB and Jones as à number 3 or 4 (slot).

They named the Hail Mary after his Mom.  I remember one time He and Jon Dorenbos' had a 'magic off".  He turned water into wine and it was all over.
