How Safe Are Coach McDermott and GM Beane?

Recommended Posts

I disagree with people saying no chance that McDermott gets fired.... This is pro sports and you just never know really. 

 

If this team goes 2-14 or 3-13 I would say there's at least a 50% chance that McBeane gets fired.

This thread will be more interesting in weeks 12 +

 

Let's see if they can win any games between now and then.

You have to keep some quality pieces , even if you feel they are underperforming. Coach them up and get more out of them. If you tear things down to expansion team level, you’ve dug too deep a hole to get out of in a reasonable time. 

 

Boatdrinks gets it.  You reset the roster maybe by getting rid of one overpaid underperforming guy.  You don’t scrape the talent plate bare, including of guys on their rookie deals.

 

No one hits in the draft 100%, especially in the later rounds.  No one.  

Everyone overpays for talent in FA.  Everyone.  And by the time you’ve overpaid, you don’t have money to keep the homegrown talent you hit on 3-4 years back

How safe are any of us, really?  Can you really predict tomorrow?  In the event that the unthinkable happens, are your wife and kids provided for?

 

Let me know if you'd like to learn more about term life insurance.

Even if they give up 30-40 points all year?

I doubt that as well.  It would be unfair to fire a guy in less than two years or only after two years.  Lack of continuity already has hurt this team.

 

The only way I could see the Pegulas firing McCoach is if we continue to have historic embarrassing losses (or something like that).

 

Barring something like that, I just don't see it.  We already have a bit of a reputation for firing coaches quickly (e.g., Rex, Bylsma).

They both easily have 2years. 

 

Beane is the only one I have concerns about but want to see what the draft and FA brings next year. This years FA we brought in looks like crap all around thus far.

Where there is smoke there is fire. The wheels are minus the lug nuts and the car is picking up speed, can't tell me the Pegulas are ok with all that has happened. I would not be surprised if the Pegulas have talked with current and former players who have been shipped out by McBean as to what is going on.

Seems nuts, although we know many sportswriters chose the Bills as most likely to regress. But the team has done more than regress; they’ve gone from playoff team to tire fire. This is a new era of the NFL, with billionaire owners that want fast results. They don’t care about eating hefty coaches contracts. I know it goes against what T- Pegs has stated in recent times, but this has gotten embarrassing. If the Bills don’t show marked improvement by years end, nothing is off the table.

Those saying there is “zero” chance McDermitt gets fired are kidding themselves.  If this team gets blown out week after week, which seems possible, and it becomes apparent that he has lost the team, then he most certainly can get fired.  Anyone who is unconcerned with what we are seeing needs to wake up.

I know right.

 

How do you think that conversation went last year

 

McBeane.... Terry and Kim were going to be average this year(2017) but were going to get rid of all the young talent, replace it with old do nothings, have a huge dead money cap hit and go 0-16 and get blown out every week and not be a decent functioning team until 2020 at earliest, but we will have a lot of cap space.

 

Pegulas.... sounds great, i'm all in!

 

I don't think so, there is no way in hell the Pegulas signed up for that.

You are correct in my judgment.  I would be shocked if the Pegulas were told anything like that or signed up for anything like that (or the way the season has gone thus far).

 

I will be surprised if McCoach gets fired this year, but all bets are off if we continue to get blown out and/or the franchise is embarrassed.

Yeah, I doubt they would get fired this year unless the Pegulas felt they weren't as transparent as they had said. IDK if Terry or Kim feels as though they have been duped then all bets are off. Again I can't be convinced that Pegulas signed up for this disaster so what was really said by McBean last year is the question.

IMO, the Bills can go 0-16 and there’s no way Coach is getting axed.  There are a plethora of reasons.  The first is practicality.  In his first year McDermott led the Bills to the playoffs. Period.  That was unthinkable a few years ago, and breaking that streak was huge for both Coach and this franchise.  

0% for these exact reasons. It's also Week 3. Let's give it a season and call it as we see it once we have some semblance of an OL, some WRs, DB help, and more of an effective DL...
