SI Predicts 2019 Records

Recommended Posts

Plenty to disagree with here.

He has the Bills going 6-10 but had one scenario where they win 10 games.  Sounds like the first round did not align to his world view/bias so he had to find games to change.  In grand scheme, means nothing but a time killer while waiting for camp to open.

Unless there a package deal, if the team regresses this year, I would get rid of McDermott before Beane. This team is fairly well constructed. IMO Beane has done pretty darn good as a GM. It isn’t his job to get the talent to play well, it is his job to get the talent. He has done that.

Let their contracts play out I think McBeane deserves that. What’s one year after dealing with all the other garbage gm and coaches that have been here.

Well the OP posted an SI article that predicts 6-10. If that's what actually happens they should be fired.

Why do they deserve that?

6&10 is a prediction for a bad roster, or a  decent roster that is badly coached. I don't think the Bills are either of these

I like when national publications/prognosticators/"experts" disregard us. The narrative is Buffalo is always mediocre and the QB isn't very good. I see more positives  here than I have in quite a while (which might be damning with faint praise) but I like when expectations from the national press are kept low. Sneaking up on other fan bases and their teams is a fun way to go.

Depends on the circumstances that led to that record but six wins is pry the ceiling when it comes to firing consideration.

Some were talking about firing him before they were hired.

They'd be right the last 19 years.

Some on this board think they are optimists.

Has he?   He spent a fortune in draft picks and talent to get Allen, and if the Bills go 6-10, without serious injuries to key players then it's probably because Allen hasn't grown into a franchise QB as hoped for -- and isn't likely to develop into more than a modest mid/low level starting QB.  The Bills have had several of those over the last 2 decades.   He's also spent more draft capital trading up in both his drafts, so unless those picks prove out this season, then he didn't get much for the extra investment.

 

Except for Morse, none of his FA or trade acquisitions have been impressive.  Some, like Benjamin, have been terrible.  He over paid for mediocre talent like Lotulelei, and we're still waiting to see if Murphy can regain his pre-injury form.

Yeah, they've been wrong about the Bills sooooo often ... especially when predicting the team making the playoffs.

Why?  What did giving Jauron and Gailey extra time give us?  Honestly, if it wasn’t for a fluke playoff berth (which we as fans deserved), there has been a bunch of bad football their first 2 years.

 

i swear a regime has never been given as much of a pass as them.  People love to hate on Whaley but his rosters after 3 years was stronger than this current roster after 3 years, minus Josh Allen turning into a franchise qb.  Our offense has been brutal and for some reasons, fans just ignore it because McBeane are nice guys.

Yeah,  I don’t get why fans get mad about this.  Would we have picked the Browns to be good the last 15 years?   The Bills have been the feisty team that doesn’t have a ton of talent, crappy qbs that scrap their way to 6-9 wins.
