My exact thought. Are they even aware they have been in last place for 3 straight years? Even the year before that when they were decent they got knocked out of the playoffs by Rex freaking Ryan. Sad!

 

Jets fans are typically not self-aware.  Again they wish they were the Bills and had just made the playoffs 2 seasons ago.

Whatever Jets guy.

 

He does have a point.  We don't yet know what we got, and the Jets could go from "tire fire" to 9-7 or 8-8 just as we did when Marrone vacated. 

The talent that Maccagnan brought in will still be there this season.

Suffering from an injection of reality doesn't make him a Jets fan.

 

Me, I still gotta point and giggle, though. 😋 😂😋🤣

Let’s not pile on the Jets.   We have virtually no idea what the Bills will be this season.

We could be the next train wreck come spring of 2020.

 

I think we may be an underperforming team if Allen and Edmunds don't take the expected steps, but  I don't think we'll be "the next train wreck" or clown show.

 

After the Whaley/Rex debacle which made the Pegulas look seriously bad, I believe their #1 job criterion for new coach/GM was to hire professionals.

What I mean by "professional" here, is a guy who wants to stay in the industry, and who will keep his lip buttoned to the media,  stomp on leaks, shut the office door, and thrash things out in private then keep 'em that way. 

 

Whether or not they're "all that and a bag of chips" as coach/GM is still TBD, but I think the Pegulas succeeded with the above.

A head coach also being GM is never a good idea.  Neither is having a coordinator thrust upon you.  This should end well.

I love it.  The Bills built around JA with great OL, and good WR/RB signings this offseason.  The Jets added big ticket free agents like Mosley(after Barr walked right out the door), Bell (who Gase doesnt even want), and Q Williams (blesses himself after he sneezes). I like Q, but the jets and giants are duking it out for dumbest org in football rn.

He was a bum anyway.  Surprised he lasted this long.

 

Going all in on Gase though is nuts.

At this rate, the mood inside MetLife Stadium on 9/8/19 might go a little something like this?

From that article:

 

Quote

In 2017, the Bills weren’t far off from this. After Sean McDermott was hired to replace Rex Ryan, then-GM Doug Whaley, who stuck around during free agency and that offseason’s NFL draft, was fired right after the draft.

Sounds a bit like this week, no?

Actually, that’s right. No it does not sound familiar and nor should it for Bills fans.

 

What about to Bills "fans"? 😂 :beer:

 

Pretty clear that Buffalo had a plan whereas the Jets do not seem to.

The similarities are their between Pegula and Johnson.

 

Two indecisive owners who aren't the most knowledgeable and competent sports guys in the world. 

 

I think Pegula wanted to keep Whaley aboard and then changed his mind after the hire of McDermott. 

 

Typically franchise hires their GM before their HC. 😅

Well in the Jets defense it took us about 20 years to formulate that "clear" plan

 

having the right GM Coach combo is as crucial a finding a franchise QB.  It taking the Pegulas multiple tries with the Sabres and the Bills and they are only hoping their latest Sabres change is the one there. At least they finally go it right for the Bills so I have hope of seeing that eventually repeating with the Sabres.. I am hopeful on Krueger, Boterill worries me though...

I see the Pegulas as learning as they go. I'm very happy with the state of the Bills moving forward..  I can also see what they are striving for with both franchises and although it hasn't been as smooth as we would like I still strongly believe they will get both franchises firing well. When they get the right combos they'll stick with them and stability / Consistency will follow.

 

No worries at all.. Just patience mnixed in with impatient frustrations but not worried as they will get it right and they will lock it in when they do.

Couple things that he didn't touch on: 

 

The Bills were headed for a rebuild... The Jets are supposed to be coming out of one. 

 

There wasn't a power struggle, there was a neutered GM who was kept as a figure head and then let go immediately. I'm sure Whaley knew it was coming, either by direct mention from Terry, or by figuring it out.

 

And, the biggest difference: 

 

We weren't handing the keys to the building to a retread coach who has never accomplished anything, just spent the past three years fighting for power and ruining the roster of a division rival, and has a horrible interpersonal reputation in the league.

I think that right after McDermott was hired that Brandon Beane was the target for GM.

Beane was already destined to be the new Bills GM before Whaley was actually fired IMO.

If Gettleman was fired earlier in the off season then Beane may have stayed in Carolina.

When it got to March or so I think his (Beane) decision to move up to Buffalo was made.

It was too close to the draft for the move to be made.

 

I truly believe McDermott and Beane discussed this possibility before McDermott was even hired.

It’s almost a guarantee that they did... they interviewed as a package deal for the Niners before McD took the Bills job (they had both jobs open at the same time unlike the Bills)
