I assure you that nobody remembers what your said, or cares.

 

Congrats to Sammy on a big contract. Congrats to us for stealing a 2nd round pick from the Rams for a player that overvalued himself out of town.

Elite talent gets paid.  His production hasn’t been elite, but people have eyes.  Sammy, Tyreek and Kelce.  Wow.  Setting up Maholmes to succeed

These new salaries are unreal.    Five dudes from Sammy's WR class now making north of $15M per year.

 

That used to be franchise QB money a few years ago, now they pay it to a guy that's averaged 750 yards per season in his first four years.  And $30M of it is guaranteed

 

Brady's 2005 contract was 6 years, $10M per year, $28M guaranteed.  Sammy just got guaranteed more than Brady did for HALF the amount of years, even after Tom had two rings.

Didn't we spend lots of collateral to set up EJ Manual to succeed. How that work out

 

Guess KC is going to see what they have in Mahommes.....  It is really all on his shoulders now

Andy Reid will use Sammy. He’s going to get 8-10 targets a game. 

 

Reid is the only guy who could likely use Sammy.

this is starting to be a joke.  i have no idea why some people are beating their chests over this.  why...because you predicted sammy would get paid and he did?  big deal.  i feel it's the same people who were complaining the loudest about the trade are the ones who are trying to take this as a win for their side.  it's really not.  the bills were smart to trade sammy for a second.  there was zero possibility that they were going to pony up this kind of money.  kc decided to overpay for production at this point.  the bills made the right decision, and the people that screamed the loudest were really just wasting their time.

We moved up in the draft to select Watkins to give EJ a chance to succeed. Basically the same thing KC is trying to do for Mahommes using the same WR we spent draft picks on to move up and grab.

 

really you don't remember this ?

 

Just thought it was ironic that we grabbed Watkins then for the same reason KC is signing him now...

Ya but even back then Tom was all about "Team Friendly" deals to ensure decent talent around him....AND more rings....

Except the guy who started this thread isn't doing that and just admitted he was wrong.  So not sure why you are telling him this.

Because Whaley did the same thing. Set up an unproven second year QB to win.

Damn right.......  I was the first and was told I was dead wrong and had nop idea what I was talking about.

 

Now TBD is calling the trade to Rams a success, because a receiver get's paid?????  What backwards thinking is that?

 

You pay for talent and could have had Watkins last year and tied him up at a better price if the Management staff did think it through.

 

Now is the thought process for the Bills to draft a QB and put no weapons around him?

Sammy was my favorite Bill, but I find it funny that everyone is saying how it's going to be tough to double him with Tyreek on the other side when the guy played across from Goodwin and Tavon Austin, who are just as competent as long ball threats.

 

The key to managing Watkins is similar to the way Kelvin Benjamin has to be coached:  outside plays along the sidelines, no over the middle stuff.  Do what Martz did with Issac Bruce and Tory Holt--catch it and step out of bounds, save your body for the next play even though it means giving up some yards.   These guys are not durable, they're not Robert Woods or Baldwin, they aren't built for contact. 

 

Otherwise you'll be in the training room all year and play half the games if you're lucky.

 

 

Good luck covering them though.....

Is he talented yes.  But not a lot of super stars play on three different teams in three years.  KC just paid near Antonio Brown money for someone who may be good someday.

Why?  Because he was one of the ones screaming loudest against the trade. He even went as far as telling us that the reasons Watkins numbers weren’t  special was because Goff was a worse qb than tt, and that Goff was being coached not to throw to Sammy.   The bills did the right thing by trading Sammy and getting the 2nd. The people that won’t admit that they were wrong about criticizing the trade, are the same ones who are excited they guessed his contract correctly. Big !@#$ing deal.
