NRC still hates the Pats from when he was a Bill

He replaced him with a lower salary in Leonard Johnson and then even lower in taron Johnson. I really like NRC as a person but from a football/business standpoint I didn’t think it made a difference on the field.

Completely agree, liked how he played here but don't think we lost much when he left.  I wished the Rams well even before I knew they were playing NE in the Super Bowl because of him and Robert Woods

I never really understood why he was let go.

 

Only thing I can think of is some sort of size preference by McDermott, as I thought he was the type of guy who simply 'buys in' to whatever he's asked to do.

 

While he isn't exactly big, to say the least, he was rarely out of position, and often close to making a play on the football. (Ints)

 

Imho, he's an unnecessary victim of 'cleaning house' as far as the Bills go.

 

Fortunately, one of McDermott's (and Beane's) strengths, is finding DBs he can coach up, so NRC's loss, hasn't hurt us, but I still find it a somewhat bemusing decision.

I do think it was his lack of size/speed. Nothing to do with Process/not buying in -( no indication of that anyway) He was a Playmaker in Rex’s D in terms of turnovers but also wasn’t effective in spots. He’s a great guy for sure but replaceable in the new scheme. Wade runs a different defense than McDermott. NRC  often looks like he can’t cover good WR without committing PI (he won’t get  away with that vs Edelman). I hope he does though! 

 

I don’t think Bills fans should look at as an emotional decision - he’s a likable player but it’s a business. I will be rooting for him on Sunday!

A 5'8" guy trying to cover a zone makes the windows bigger for a QB to hit and is therefore less effective in this scheme we play. He is better suited for a man defense like Wade plays.

It might not have made much difference, but IMO it's an example of creating a hole where there didn't need to be one, then needing to sign and draft guys to fill it.

 

If Leonard Johnson were just the same as NRC only cheaper, does it really make sense he's on his 6th NFL team since 2015?

Nuke was small, but he was a playmaker who had a nose for the ball and came up big when it counted the most.  Disagree with those saying we didn't lose much when he was let go.

I don’t think he saw him as a great scheme fit, I anticipated he would be replaced. As a UDFA I think he’s done well for himself. It was actually Marrone who recommended the signing. He had played usc while coaching at Syracuse and noticed him.

Really liked NRC while he was a Bill and hope the Rams knock off the Pats*** Sunday, but is anyone really arguing he would have been a difference maker on the D the Bills have trotted out the past two seasons (whose strength has been their secondary) and calling out McD for making a "mistake?"

 

Come on, people.  There's plenty to question McD about (Peterman, Peterman, Peterman) without just looking for stuff.

I'm rooting for Wade Phillips.

That's basically all McBeane have done to this point. 

 

Created a bunch of unnecessary holes and are just starting to fill them back with their "own" guys. 

 

Reallt interested to see how this offseason unfolds. They really need an influx of talent after they've decimated the team of it. Big offseason for these two. Hope they do it right.👍🏻

I have completely given up on Brady ever being bad at football. He will play until he is 50.  I have succumbed to my New England overlords

I would love to see Nickell on a corner blitz cause a sack/fumble in a big spot. Also Woods with a big day. 

 

They're going to need Donald to have a big day.

Exactly. Similar production at a smaller price tag. Excellent move. Robey-Coleman is awesome, but both him and the Bills have moved on.

I still root for Woods every time I watch him since he left the Bills. He always stepped up and played well with limited targets and was a selfless blocker.

 

There are some former Bills I root to fail and some, like Woods and Robey-Coleman, that I love to see succeed.

At least we are roughly 2/3 the way through his career.

We all appreciate nrc, but let’s face it, he wasn’t terribly missed...at least not until this tweet.

I wish all the best for NRC and will be rooting for him on Sunday - especially considering the personal tragedy he went through.

 

With that being said, he talked a lot during the interview and I just hope he can back it up

Totally Agree.. Rams likely don't even make the playoffs without those two.. and the Bills would be in the Super Bowl.. Great call!
