Bill Polian on Bills coaching and more....

Recommended Posts

 

We are so lucky to have the coaches and GM we have.  Can't wait to see what they can do next season, after Free Agency, the draft, and Josh Allen's second year.

 

Unfortunately I only got the actual article to come up once....have to be a subscriber I guess.

I'm not sure how anyone could say winning 15 games over the past 2 years with the roster we have had is anything short of unbeliebvable...Hue jackson would have been 0-32.

Keep in mind he LOVED him some Dick Jauron.

 

He encouraged Marv to hire Jauron to replace Mularkey(after Ralph refused to re-hire Marv himself)..........and Polian declared that he'd have hired Jauron for the Colts..........ya' know.........if Tony Dungy hadn't been available.:flirt:

 

Polian's takes have been pretty irrelevant/bad since the early 2000's IMO............as disappointing as it was that he couldn't finish the defense in Buffalo its even more amazing that he only won 1 SB with Peyton Manning.

This is why I'm confused as to why people are more sold on Beane than McDermott.

 

Teardown/reconstruction/whatever; Beane has yet to put together a competitive roster whereas McDermott has done a fine job with crap rosters. 

 

McDermott has gotten more results than Beane thus far.

Yep.........long after the game had passed him by as well.

 

Listening to Polian babble at the Senior Bowl practices was pretty sad.............there's nothing left to give there.

Beane has proven absolutely nothing.

 

He's only had two years, man.  And it appears that he did something that no Bills GM has been able to do in the 35 years prior to Beane's arrival .... get a real QB.

 

Oh ... he also got a 3rd round pick for Tyrod Taylor.  That, alone, says that "absolutely nothing," is patently false.

....nothing more than opinions......plenty hit the nail and even more whiffed......here's a couple of more gems to digest.......Jaws commenting on how "smart JP Losman is with the football"....OR...Brylcream Mel Kiper on Tony Mandarich, calling him "a behemoth....a man playing among boyz.....can't miss HOF'er"...Pepto Bismol time............

He has yet to field a competitive roster and he APPEARS to have gotten a real QB. Like I said, he has proven nothing whereas McDermott has proven he can maximize the roster.

 

I didn't say Beane was going to fail. I said he has proven nothing. Which is true.

Not sure I'd call a team that should win 3 games an endorsement of the GM. 

 

He's giving credit for coaching,  not team building.

So all of the nobodies who Beane secured who are playing on their top 5 defense would've sucked without McDermott?

Has he fielded a competitive roster? The answer is no. That's all I was saying. What I read from Polian is exactly the way I see it; the coach has gotten the most out of crap rosters. It doesn't mean Beane will never get it done. I just find it odd that people have more confidence in BB than they do in McDermott.

Wait, weren’t people bashing the media that only predicted us to win 4 games and now we are praising the coaching staff for getting more than 4 wins from a roster without much talent?

I think they are both on the fence.

 

Both have done some very good things and glaringly bad things in their respective jobs and they've shown a willingness to correct obvious mistakes, which is encouraging.

 

Similar position to where Jauron was after his first season.......no balls, no babies though..........and after watching their slow build Vegas clearly thinks they have no balls and that's why they have the worst odds in the NFL to win the SB even though they are a 6 win team with no free agents and a ton of draft picks and cap room.:lol:

 

The narrative that they inherited a bad team or a team that required re-building isn't accurate though.............they made a choice to create a roster that would be naturally more amenable to a hard working, caring but mistake prone young HC.........patient, well paid vets with few options and try hards and rookies.   They even threw extra money at guys like McCoy and Wood to get them to help sell their process.     It wasn't an entirely organic "process". :lol:

That coach and that GM put together the 2019 roster. That coach started Peterman. Same coach that let Gilmore walk. Same GM that got rid of talent for cap space. 

Past is prologue. I’m moving on and evaluating moves made going forward. But I’m not giving them a pass on prior decisions.

I know and he has already had one full offseason to do so.😎

Well, he was GM when the team made the playoffs.  That was kind of a big deal.  What’s your definition of a “competitive roster” Trolly McTrollenstein?

More sage wisdom from the guy who likes being pessimistic about the Bills so much that his screen name is "BADOLBILZ". Thanks for all you do, bud!

Cool nickname bro. And I've been told a million times on this very board that Beane had nothing to do with the 2017 roster. Was that true?

 

I swear we have to be the softest fanbase in the history of mankind. I say I believe in the coach, but I'm not sold on the GM. That elicits this kind of response? Holy smokes.

3 points:

 

1. It was THEIR decision to start Peterman and trade for Benjamin. They shouldn't get credit for having a bad roster, they should get blamed. They could've easily went into the year with Anderson and Barkley. Not Peterman. 

 

2. In what world do we give credit to a team for posting up a losing season? This is NFL football. Second year HC's win, even make Superbowls. I understand every situation is different but there were SEVERAL boneheaded decisions made.

 

3. Polian is a GM of old. He absolutely squandered anything he touched, beyond drafting Manning #1 overall, and his opinions on most things football have been wildly incorrect lately. Remember, this guy LOVED Manziel...

 

I'm not a homer so people will automatically disagree or deny anything I say so here is a link outlining Polian's decade of absolute and utter failure. With Jim Kelly and Peyton freaking Manning, the guy got ONE Superbowl win.

I don't think we're soft - I just think we get frustrated with people like you.  You take these hard stances and you as quick as anyone can't handle debate.  There are no other points of view, except yours.   You're actually the soft one but you can't see it.  

 

There's no way you can have enough knowledge to say you're not sold on the GM.

Or perhaps I am just comfortable with the reality either way.

 

It's a hobby and entertainment...........I want to understand why it is and what to expect and I can be objective about it.

 

You know how the great athletes say "embrace the suck"........well the realistic Bills should do that with the Bills if necessary........or you end up like our resident apologists dying a thousand deaths while they hope for luck and fate to intervene in Bills results.

 

As for my screen name............don't expose your still-wet-rodent from the BBMB sinking ship nature..........I've been posting here since 1998 and have had plenty of encouraging things to say when it's deserved👍.........there's just been this little "absence of success" thing.    Doesn't stop me from enjoying the game or the tailgating.:beer:
