Isn't it a weird feeling to observe the incompetence of other teams from the POV of rooting for a competent team?

Watching all of the other teams making stupid decisions while our Club gets stronger every day sure is a good feeling. Buffalo is going to be a force to be reckoned with for a long time. Fasten your seatbelt

Especially since the Bills rebuilt the team while making the playoffs in year 1, and playing competitive football in year 2.  Having a cohesive plan and competent people in place to execute it, is so much better than the patchwork, scattershot approaches of the past.

and Joe Gibbs Redskins were also very well run organizations

Yep. The Redskins were squared away, then the owner, Jack Kent Cooke died. Daniel Snyder bought the team and it's been a dumpster fire ever since. Reminds me of another active post today about leadership starting with the owner.

Yep.  I listened to about 20 minutes of Redskins bashing this morning on DC radio.. how they have a horrible culture. the players don't trust the owner, they don't trust the front office, ...they don't trust the medical staff, etc..

 

So then you circle back to McBeane and they have really created something special in Buffalo.   The the Pegulas and the new fitness facility, nutrition center, etc.. It's amazing.

Looking around the NFL, I see stunning amounts of front office and team building incompetence. 

The Jets letting a Pro Bowl kicker go despite having plenty of money to sign them, then losing a game due to bad kicking and already being on the FOURTH kicker of the season by week 3. Also not putting good protection in front of Darnold and having to talk Ryan Kalil out of retirement. They also paid infinity dollars to an off-ball linebacker and a running back and a corner that they just benched.

The Browns ALSO failing to put good protection in front of Baker Mayfield, who now looks like he may be pulverized into dust before he can set the league on fire.

The Giants just...well...there's too much to even list.

The Dolphins tanking in such an obvious way that even good, young, recently drafted players like Minkah Fitzpatrick want out. 

There has always been this level of incompetence in the NFL, of course. The difference now is that, for years, the Bills were near the top of the "stumbling, bumbling" incompetence list. As a fan of the Bills, I never really had room to talk about OTHER teams' bad decisions. Now? I sit back, confident in the fact that my favorite team finally has stability, a GM and head coach that are on the same page, and a clear direction. I look at the awesome offensive line that this front office has built for Josh Allen, the targets they've gotten him, the purposeful building of the defense, the smart free agency spending, the culture...just about everything. I'm not used to looking at chaos and stupidity around the league and thinking "not MY team". This is new. 

I could get used to this.

Little premature don't you think? 

 

Everything looks good now, but it's a long season my friend. See the 2008, and 2011 seasons.

While I think this is definitely different than 2008 and 2011...I don't know to what level yet. We'll have to see how we contend with teams like the Pats and find out.

I think it is too, just because I think Allen is the real deal, but we will see. They are looking like a 9 win team. At the least.

No TBD thread is complete until ScottLaw comes in and poops in the middle of the floor.

I can just hear it now, the bills finish with 11 or 12 wins and media says "well they had a very easy schedule and the afc was really weak this season"

I don't know what you're talking about. McBeane is lost out here. We need to fire everybody ~ Pre-Season posters

 

 

 

That's funny, but I think some fans forget that this is McBeane's first head coaching job & he's learning also---I think he's getting better.

I'm not pooping on anything.... just thought Bills fans would know to temper their enthusiasm with success out the gate given previous seasons. 

 

I like how Allen and the team looks and how the schedule sets up but it's a long season and we've seen it before.👍🏻

You just made his point.  The front office and coaching staff were totally incompetent in those years.  There was no clear cut plan.  It was scattershot, patchwork roster building and poor talent evaluation.

His take seems logical.

1) Despite what Schopp says, “football character” matters...i.e. drafting and signing players that WANT to play ball rather than just cash in on endorsements and self-promotion (Brown, Jalen Ramsey, etc)

 

2) When you build a team with your own draft picks and interviews, you know the members of the team will run through a wall for each other - rather than bellyaching about record, coaches etc. 

 

3) Dolphins are cleaning house in an abrupt manner. Building with their own draft picks but it looks like a TANK. Beane did it the right way...gradual elimination of problem children but remain competitive. 

 

Love these guys.

They did? I must have missed that.

 

Outscored 78-23 in first two games...........started Peterman on opening day?   Ring a bell?

 

They ended up getting blown out 7 times and having a -105 point differential........which is very bad,  if you didn't know.

"Hey, our franchise has been slipping steadily over the years and it looks like the bottom just dropped out with an ugly 0-2 start and our franchise QB out for the year... what should we do?"

 

"I know, let's trade our #1 pick this coming draft for a slot corner!"

For a long time Bills fans have been making fun about the Bills and some complain about opposing fans/media doing so (the other "Bills fans" just raise their voice to make fun louder).  I think it is time for horns to be on outside and not be bickering Bills fans.   Some will continue anyways but they have not been Bills fans for a long time.

 

 

Some of the sociopathic stuff you've said on here and said you've done to others...........true or not........sheesh..........nobody should care what you like..........in fact if you like it it's probably wrong.:lol:
