He was someone who fans in my bar watching Green Bay thought was under utilized.  I was advocating Bills get him as a free agent.

 

He is a player for who which I wish Ed Reed was still here.  He has the skills Ed Reed had and Reed has the experience to get him to progress faster.

True.  I mean he seems to be progressing fairly quickly as is.  His first 2 years playing the position full time and arguably playing at the highest level in the game

Just a phenomenal article on a phenomenal player breaking down exactly what Hyde has brought as a FS since joining Buffalo. This man is playing as potentially the best in the game

Very very underrated player.  Hyde and Poyer are the best S tandem in the league.

I need to wait for Ronin’s evaluation on Hyde before I can agree or not.

The back end of this defense in 2019 has the potential to be scary good.  If the Bills improve their pass rush the entire D might be be scary good.

Was Hyde signed on a 4 year deal ? 

Hope we can keep them both ,

Summary of Ronin's Analysis:

 

He's crap because...

Film, which I swear I don't cherry pick--I'm above that, you plebians--and it's all McD's fault and should fall on their shoulders, and it's smart to listen to me and get new coaches every two years (so I can be right when the team never builds anything, and point back to my posts about being right).

On throws of 20-plus yards over that same period (past two years), Hyde has allowed a single reception from nine targets; three of those targets ended in interceptions, another one ended in a dropped interception and another two resulted in pass breakups — if that doesn’t tell you how much of a difference-maker he’s been for the Bills at the top of the defense, nothing will.

 

 

Over two years, teams have only tried to throw deep with Hyde in coverage nine times and have one completed one freaking pass. That is nuts. 

 

What a fantastic free agent signing.

So Hyde's performance in 2018 makes him the best free safety since 2017?  Epic!  Just kidding.  It's good to see him get recognized.  It's also nice to see that Brandon Beane and Sean McDermott seem to have a good grip on how to build a team.

He is honestly one of the reasons poyer gets so many statistics

 

Teams do not try him and when they do he makes them pay

 

He is a stud and I love his versatility

 

Him and Poyer do work great together in pass defense

Am I missing something? Does this “ highest rated safety since 2017” mean the same thing as “ highest rated last year”?

No

 

His work at free safety alone that year earned a coverage grade of 91.6 — the seventh-best single-season grade ever recorded by a player with at least 300 snaps at free safety.

  1. Jairus Byrd (2012) - Bills
  2. Ed Reed (2009) - Ravens
  3. Eddie Jackson (2018) - Bears
  4. Charles Woodson (2015) - Oakland (and his last year)
  5. Devin McCourty (2016) - Satan's team
  6. O.J. Atogwe (2007) - Rams (in St Louis)

are the only safeties who have recorded a better single-season coverage grade at free safety than Hyde did in 2017 — and that list spans 860 players across 13 seasons.

I already knew he was good.  Was a big fan of the signing.  Had no idea about Poyer but he's obviously exceeded everyone's expectations.

So we like PFF now? Because in the other thread, we hated them.

Be careful. I seen movies like that and they don’t end well for the husband. 😉

Hahaha. Yea.... I think I know why your wife likes him. The Bills have some 'talent' at safety.

I think it was Bill Belichick that talked about how Hyde and Poyer were so hard to play against because they wait till the very last second to switch to their true alignment in the defense, so the QB never quite knows exactly what coverage it is before the snap. Something like that.

 

I also remember that play Hyde made where he completely abandoned his assignment to go make an INT. It was a pure instinct play and he wasn't supposed to be anywhere near the ball based on the coverage. He just somehow knew the QB would throw it there. Great to have someone with instincts and coverage ability.

It's true. When I saw tis thread title I was going to say "but he doesn't always play as the FS" but when you read the article it does break that down. McDermott has said consistently in this scheme there really is limited difference to the two safety jobs. Poyer and Hyde alternate often. Having two guys who can do that allows you to diagnose so much and it is a big reason why our pass defense is so good. Makes it more difficult for teams to "choose their matchup".
