Micah Hyde is THE heart and soul of this defense.

Reminds me of the old joke about the Beatles ... McCartney was the brains, Lennon the soul, Harrison the heart of the band ... and Ringo? He was the drummer.

Hyde is a very, very good safety. Quarterback of the defense. Posing the question as to whether or not the defense would suffer in his absence is ridiculous and sort of odd. But that's just my opinion since you asked.

Hyde should be extended as his skill set is at an All-Pro level. Poyer is easier to replace and they may already have a guy or two on the roster that could be an everydown starter at SS.  

No doubt. I've been trying to hammer this point home for a while, but these two are not interchangeable. Hyde is an elite safety and Poyer is a quality safety. Prior to this season, they were essentially seen as the same guy or a duo with little distinction. May as well have referred to the safety position as Micah Poyer.

He came from a team with a winning culture. Such a shrewd signing.  Landon Collins Signed 6 years 84 mill.  We got

hyde for 5-30


The Redskins are also ran by complete imbeciles. Worst managed franchise in all of sports probably

There was a poll on Twitter asking the OP question.  Can't find it though.  Did find this:

I don't know...there are many good players.  I don't think you can name one as the heart and soul.  Hyde certainly is an important piece of the puzzle!

Agree. To me it's Hyde and Tre over Poyer but I'd have Poyer over Levi as far as priority signings.

 

I like Poyer but Levi not only has been the better player but his value in the open market is more than twice Poyer's value.

Hyde is awesome but I believe McDermott is the heart and soul. I have questions about his head coaching at times, but he is one of the best defensive minds in the game.  I think our defense is almost plug and play where we can just sub guys in and out without much drop off.  Just need an elite pass rusher.

He and Frazier working in tandem with one another has been amazing to watch over the last 3 years. I hope we can keep this staff together for at least another 3. I also have complete trust in Brandon Beane. If we can keep this together, in that I time I expect these modern era Bills to exorcise the ghosts of Bills teams past.

Evidently, veteran quality posters have taken a cue from the team and went home for the Bye. Judging by all the topics on pg 1, it’s Kiddy Table City around here.

Another reason to revisit the standards for things like posting and starting threads.

I like Levi and for an UDFA he's done extremely well in this system. To me Tre, Micah, and Poyer are all Top 5 -10 players at their respective positions. Levi IMO is not.

You will join a long list of people underestimating him his entire life, only to be wrong. 

He's been outstanding since getting the start last year. did you watch the Patriot game? He shut down his side of the field.

Alexander is the heart.

 

Hyde is the soul. 
 

Edmunds is the brain.

 

White is the hips.

 

Poyer is the guy with the super hot wife.

Safeties won't kill the cap, re-sign them both since they're both playing at a high level and deserve extensions. We have more than enough cap room and no reason to make a hole when we don't have to.

Poyer and Hyde both need new contracts. I'd like them to both retire as Bills

Agreed. I don't see how he wasn't made a Captain.

LEVI is the best corner on this team and has had the best season on this defense.

 

That being said, Tre, Poyer, Hyde are also excellent.  So not a knock on them at all, thats just how good Levi has played.

So you agree with your own statement? Thanks for taking the time for such an insightful post.

And thank you for taking the time to post a negative Nancy post to a thread you have no interest in. Here’s an idea, go away if you don’t like it!

I actually agree. 

I think he deserves his due as a top 5 Safety in the game. His buddy Poyer is top 10 I feel , them two are make this defense GO. An elite defense , top 3 defense at worse. 

I also agree we'd suffer defensively without him. Not just cause he's a top 5 S but his i.q and his field generalship for the secondary will be severely missed. Love Hyde , I'd be stunned if he isn't re signed in a couple years as well.
