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

I like McBeane.  I say it as a compliment.  They make a great team and I am glad we have them.

 

I find McClappy annoying because I know some mean it in a derogatory sense, but the man does like to clap.

I'll take Sean's clapping over this.

Agreed. In no way do I find "McBeane" an insult. It's a shorthand way  to talk about this management team (GM and HC) as they seem to be completely in step with each other. (At least so far.) Perhaps some use it differently, but I haven't noticed it.

 

McClappy or McClappity could be considered fairly insulting, and I suppose some use it that way. Nothing too major, though. I simply couldn't care less about whether a coach claps, says "obviously" too much, or whatever. Those are just low level BS insults used by those that those not capable of commenting intelligently about the football aspects of the head coach.

Dont get cocky just yet!

 

But it seems like the tide has turned and the new regime is the real thing. 


This is about the third "pump the brakes" response I've gotten, and here's the thing: I've ALREADY seen enough to show me that the Bills are now a well-run organization with a good plan in place. Seriously. I mean, sure, if they wind up 4-12 this year, then I guess the "not so fast" stuff is warranted. But I mean...isn't it obvious to anyone else how much more logical, competent, and coherent the Bills current front office is than anything else we've seen in the past 20 years? Why do I have to wait any longer to proclaim that?

Again, with all due respect to the more cautious folks, I've seen enough already to say that the Bills are being run the right way. Certainly better than the teams I listed in the OP.

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.

I hear you man. I prefer to look back at trends that evolved then speculating forward.  

 

Just remember hoodie tends to exposes chinks In opponents armor then put it on tape for the league.

 

This feels like the most competent FO in ages but I’m not sure they’ve closed all the talent gaps they need to yet. Might be a few years away still.

I'm guessing he's talking about the Peterman thing.

Bills braintrust is getting a mulligan for that fiasco by the optimists. 

 

That, and winning two games out of the gate against weak teams redeems them.

 

TETO.

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.
