Possibly you could reread the original post

 

Nah dont need to. Because you dont have to Purge to get under caps. Teams spend to cap every year. And still manage to sign UFAs and Draft classss without purging. 

 

Just the nice built in excuse for this regime

where are these educated fans.....you mean the same one who say fire Beane...this teams sucks ...etc.

 

 

 

 

To design the proper team model you have to look at salary structure...

 

 

offense players paid highest....QB, WR, LOT

on Defnese DE, OLB, CB

 

the next 3 seasons after this one is a window of opportunity for Buffalo to try and do a short term compete by getting some goofd players before Allen is a due a new contract. assuming he is a successfule there is about $15M to spend over 3 years before he get s ahigher slary which means Buffalo can go out and get two very good players to compete.

 

This is similar to Seattle where they competed with Wilson on an entry contract then they lost some players when he got a new contract.

 

 

 

This rebuilding is also why I didn't like what Beane didin the draft.

 

I would have traded the two first up to TB for their 1st then gotten something like a 4th pick along with it then kept the 2 2nds and top 3rd pick they had and used them for depth players,  thise 2 are better tna the 1 they got

 

 

 

I want everyone to read this post and understand that this is who I'm referring to when I say the "Git Er Done" fans.

That's nice. Wishing for people to fail.

 

You seem like a swell fella. 

 

I mean Beane could go back to assistant GM for all I care. Crocodile tears.. he'd have it soo bad if he *keeps failing.

 

McD can stay. I want to see what he can do Beaneless

Sure go read the Joe B spin piece. And it is also a nice little excuse for the Blind Followers. 

 

Nevermind that three of the top 5 dead cap hits this year are self inflicted McD and Beane signings and or re-signings. 

 

But that doesnt fit some inheretted narrative either

There are educated fans and uneducated fans.

The educated fans understand the financial side of things and the reasonable expectation that you don't build a super bowl winner over night.

The uneducated fans want to GIT ER DONE OBD every single season, which leads to a 7-9 record for two decades.

Thank god this franchise is finally aligned with educated fans. We all knew this season would be bad. It's only surprising to the Git Er Done crew.

 

Riiiiiight.  Why don't you just say the educated fans are the ones who agree with your viewpoint, and the uneducated fans are the ones who don't?

If Beane survives this, the next two years are bright.

Yeah everybody saying he's done nothing wrong to this point because Whaley was so bad he made him overpay for Star when he wasn't even employed there.

 

That's the excuse. Doesn't mean Beane still hasn't made a lot of mistakes.

Yes Whaley was so bad. His cap hell forced Beane to get all the crappy free agents Beane overpaid for over the off-season. /s

 

That is the oft repeated excuse.

It was numbers and math. No blame, just the actual situation. I made no opinion statements only facts. What blaming did you see?

OK got it....

 

Not really on the blame whaley train.....just think the team had maxed how good it could be and needed to go a different direction.

What kind of fan is that. One that doesnt blindly trust team spin?

Maybe he means one that is continuously in the midst of one tantrum or another - like a petulant two year old....

Ahhhh. The typical insult on someone not blindly following a regime that has made very questionable decisions and have no resume of building a team.

I'd keep Woods, Goodwin, and drop Clay if that's what it actually came down to. Clay is crazy overpaid.

McCoy is too.  He's one of my favorite players on the team, but $9M for a 30 year old RB on a team that is taking a step back makes me question not the team's plan, but it's execution of the plan.

Whaley’s fault the defense McD and Beane built get smoked like 5 year old little girls (until the opponent takes their foot off the gas)

Not an insult, just an objective observation. Your posts often have the tone of someone who is about to become emotionally unhinged at any moment...

The subject line was “the cap situation McBeane inherited” then with numbers and math I laid out what that situation was. So where is the blame and excuse? It’s reality.  That was the situation.

I think that is a complete cop-out answer, based on nothing but love for the team. 

 

Its not factually accurate at all. 

 

Beane/McDermott chose this path. They did not inherit this kind of dead cap. They created it.

Yes they did.  Yes they had reasons.  Which you don't like.  And if they had done the opposite you'd complain they are paying guys too much money for player x.

Your statement is hilarious and not really thought out, I kind of understand the emotion, however, most of us have been challenging this organization since 2001! So try get your posts based in reality, take a couple of deep breaths, and get a grip!
