John Warrow’s High Praise For Beane & McDermott Regime

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The wideout crop in this year’s draft is weak overall. That is why we hit the bin big time in free agency. There was no need to reach for mediocrity when we could get the mediocrity during free agency and use the draft for high quality. 

 

Free agency where the draft is weak. Draft the year’s strong positions (we got a top 3 overall DLineman at #9. Sick). Who cares that we missed DK?

That's a really insightful commentary. I hadn't thought about the Allen angle - acquire a legitimate franchise qb prospect without mortgaging the future.  

 

I think Beane is one talented dude.

I mean I know people were angry they didn't get a WR yesterday but they had to know people wanted that and they got the guys they wanted. That's not a bad sign.

Yes it is.   If/when this team gets 6-8 wins this year I'd start over with a new vision.

 

As someone said, the record will do the talking.  The rest is just typical off-season Bills Kool Aid drinking.

Agree with Wawrow 100%.

 

This is by far the best I’ve felt about any Bills regime since Polian. I actually have faith in our front office and coaching staff, and it feels great! 

 

 

I mean.....

 

 

 

Just listen to their press conference.

 

how could you Not love these guys?

Day 3 .. time to draft a punter to help with ST's

 

I don't know about drafting one but they definitely need to bring in some competition, either by late draft pick, rookie FA or street FA.

I have a feeling they're going to make a trade for a WR. I don't think this is the WR group we'll go into the season with.

We kind of already upgraded the WR corps already with two new players abd actually building an offensive line to buy time for routes to develop.

Yeah we did, but I still don't think they're satisfied with it and will make more attempts to upgrade it this year. They might not be able to but I think they'll keep trying based on the attempt to get AB and the talk of a trade with Atlanta.

How do we compare against the other strong and rising teams of the AFC? The Patriots, Chiefs, Chargers, Browns, Ravens, Jets, Colts, Broncos, Jags, Steelers

What's the script that allows us to run through each of these teams in January?

If they can upgrade, I believe they will.  I can’t see this front office trading a 1st round pick for Julio Jones

Somebody needs to help John with Twitter and character limits...but great points all around. Trading up in front of the Patriots and grabbing Knox tells me Beane is willing to move around the board and paying attention to what is going on, which is way different than what we are used to around here. 

 

Remember how how painful and confusing it was for Buddy to trade up for TJ Graham? It's like he did not know what he was doing. Beane is a pro. He gets it and he's smart. You may not always choose the right players, but how can anyone argue against the process? Let's see what the results are.

LOL many here have wanted them

both fired and were like “We never should’ve gotten rid of Doug Marrone” or”Doug Whaley was a better GM than Beane”. 😅😅😅😅😅😅

 

I would offer you $5 for every documented instance of someone here posting either of those things, but it wouldn't be fair right now

Not to mention that Marrone opted out, the Bills didn't get rid of him. That just leaves statements of Whaley being better than Beane...

😂

They just signed a Super Bowl MVP QB and have a top tier defense. If you aren't considering them at minimum better than us on paper, you're making a mistake.

Uh huh... sure.  They will go 15-1.  Guaranteed.  Best on the AFC

So the “move up” tease JW tweeted last week was the second round pick of Ford?

I think he was talking about Williams

and he said there was a better chance of trading up than trading down.  If you believe the internet chatter, he may have been right

It's my understanding the Bills were prepared to move up as high as the 7th pick if it came down to landing one of two or three players: QWiliams, Ed Oliver and possibly Hockenson. Not sure if Josh Allen was on their radar, because they expected him to go to Jacksonville.

When it got to 7 and with Hockenson and Oliver still available (and with a good feeling the Jags weren't going to pick either), there became no real need to trade up because they knew they'd land one of two players, and more than likely Oliver.

 

The scenario could have changed if not for what Oakland and the Giants did.

 

Now, if they failed in their bid to move up to 7, and missed out on one of their top-rated guys, then a trade back was likely because of the falloff grades on their board.

 

All that said, when looking at what Buffalo did in the second and third rounds, Beane continues to show his MO is to go after the player he wants as opposed to move back and risk losing out. ... This philosophy might change should Beane, at some point, desire adding more draft picks as assets. But so long as he has them, he likes to use them in all ways possible.

PS: the speculation of the Bills moving all the way up to No. 3 was overblown.

a call was made, but the price was so high it proved to be a very short conversation. (actually, there were two conversations and both were short).

And in taking those "lumps" they still managed to win 15 games in two years and end the playoff drought.  Good times ahead.

 

 

that is a good point, it was important to get that monkey off their back, they did on the fly with a bit of luck but impressive nonetheless when considering they were selling some parts that would hurt in the present to get in better position for future drafts/salary cap.

That would be soooo nice.

But...I think 8 or 9 wins and a positive growth season would also be positive improvement and reason to stay the course. The team has to show they are trending up and be well coached. I like Warrow's many points-- there is a cohesiveness that I never recall at OBD--as much so or even more so than the glory years, of course, winning keeps the dogs at bay and proves the process...so let's hope that starts to occur...

I like the way Beane stocked the cupboards in free agency. He filled a lot of holes without overspending and trading away high draft picks. Whether this draft "fell to him", or not, he addressed most of our needs with BPA at the time. It's been a while since I've seen so many needs filled with good draft picks. As always, time will tell how good a draft this was and I hope that Singletary does not wind up being one of those woulda, coulda, shoulda moments in time.

Thanks for these tidbits. I enjoy having some understanding of what these guys are thinking, and you're giving us all a chance to understand.  Great stuff.

 

As I listen to McBeane, I continue to be impressed.  They can't be right about every judgment about players, but they have a good reason for every decision they make.   And their reasons are all driven by a consistent and thoughtful team-building process.

 

Thanks again.

Didn’t we end up with promising young punter on IR last year?
