Will Cole Beasley be the most important addition to the Bills Roster

If they use him in a Welker/Edelman role, I think he will be a pain in every teams ass just like those two. A guy that is practically uncoverable on 3rd and short is a nightmare for defensive coordinators. And when they start double/triple teaming his routes, we have Brown and Foster over the top for TDs! Should be fun!

Dallas let a guy walk that commands triple teams? 

 

Idiots!

I am NOT a fan of this abbreviation CB for Beasley.  We do NOT want  Allen to get in the habit of throwing to CBs

3 guys with eyes on him on 3rd and short will not be out of the norm. Obviously they aren't all going to run over to him in man, but you can bet there will be a lb on the lookout underneath and safety help up close to try and take him away in addition to the main cover guy if hes on fire. This is usually when Gronk goes over the middle uncovered and we are sitting there like wtf! how does that happen! Welker/Edelman are usually that reason..

..fair to say he could be our Edelman or Amendola?............

He very well could be. But that’s up to Daboll and Allen to use him that way.

I think there's a good chance Beasley will have a big impact on the Bills passing game. 

 

First off, he's a significant upgrade to McKenzie.  And don't forget that Allen was able to hit McKenzie on the type of short throws that make slot receivers so dangerous. 

 

Second, the Bills have added speed & another deep threat at WR.  With Brown & Foster split wide teams will have to respect the deeper patterns.  This is a slot receivers dream.  Combine this with Allen being able to hit almost any point on a football field means that there won't be a lot of nickle & free safety help to cover Beasley.  This will create exploitable match-up issues with LB's & strong safeties trying to cover this guy.

 

Third, short passes to slot receivers require timing.  The best way to disrupt these passes is with quick, up the middle pressure.  With last years O-line DT's were pushing the center & guards into Allen's face at the snap.  The upgrade of the O-line means that Allen will have that extra second without anyone in his face to make those throws.

Beasley had the Twitter handle of @bease11 (now deleted) 

 

He was referred to as The Bease  or The BEAST

I think he’s the key to Allen’s development and coaches evaluation.  

 

Beasley is a guy who finds gaps in the zone.  However, if you don’t have a QB who can get through his progressions and hit those short throws with accuracy, it won’t matter.  

 

If Allen can check his first two deep reads, then find Beasley in whatever adjustments he made, then yes. 

 

But not all QB’s get there

No, definitely no.  The number 1 thing that can change the offense is the growth of Allen.  I think there is way too much excitement over Beasely outputs basically what Zay did last year.

 

2018: Zay Jones: 16 games, 56 cathes 652 yards 7 TD's

2018 Beasley: 16 games, 65 catches, 672 yards, 3 TD's.

Cole does have sure hands but even he has not caught 62 mph zingers.

 

I do think that he can be the X factor in a few games. But his impact is going to be critically dependent on the OL, deep threats as well as the RB performance. Also we will have to see Allen’s short game touch to see if he can exploit Cole’s strengths.

 

I continue to believe that the most important acquisition in offense was Mitch Morse. He can allow Allen to step into the pocket and go through his progressions. Then we will know how good Allen is  as a pocket QB. (He is already great as a scrambling QB). This will also give Cole and others time to do their thing - which is get open.

 

 

In addition, Morse will get the o-line into the correct protection calls.  This was a problem last year.  I think this improvement will give Cole the chance to do his thing underneath.

I dont disagree with what you said about Allen being the most important - but the question was about the "addition" this offseason. Also those comparisons of Jones and Beasley are very deceptive. Jones was in for 941 snaps - Beasley was underutilized - was in for only 712. Cole Beasley had 65 catches on just 87 targets. Zay had 102 targets. All Cole's games were consequential. Zay's best game was the inconsequential last game against Miami. This is not to piss on Zay - but more to say - let us cut Cole Beasley some slack.

Thank you. Was going to quote his post and put something very similar to this. You beat me to it.

I have not heard anything bad about Bease.  (other that questionable Bills Fans)   70% catch rate.  I mean come on  that's damn good.  

 

Every Dallas fan I run into says we got a good deal with Cole.

I beg to differ on one point

In any game, every caught or "dropped" pass is consequential

He'll be an okay not great acquisition. Feel the same way about Brown. Both of them combined though makes a great impact on Allen's development. Hopefully Zay and Foster grow and we have a solid group of guys.

Seconded. With Ford perhaps being the second most important addition. Protection trumps weapons in terms of importance in my eyes.

To be honest ... if the FA's they brought in gel.   it has to be the O Line

Beasley's production with the Bill's will depend on Josh's ball placement and eased velocity. Short crossing routes are challenging as we've seen Brady make a career out of them.
