Sammy Watkins: New Teams, Same Bad Attitude

Recommended Posts

7 minutes ago, formerlyofCtown said:

No WR on the Kc roster had 1000 yards.

Watkins is their #2 WR not 3rd.

Sammy's career and ability has been hampered by foot injuries and even with that I think he would be a number one on most teams.

 

You are dilusional if you think John Brown (who I like) is a better WR than Watkins.

 

I'm not following your first point at all, sorry. I didn't mention 1000 yards, but Tyreek Hill is the clear #1 on that team.

Watkins is their third receiving option, at least. I see him as a #3 guy in the league, although I'm not going to argue against him being a #2. Point is he's not a #1.

John Brown is not as physically gifted as Sammy Watkins, but he is absolutely a better wide receiver than Sammy Watkins. It happens, if physical talent was everything then Charles Rogers would have lasted for more than 3 seasons.

 

I like Sammy a lot and have said that he's a viable weapon that flashes #1 upside, but just isn't consistent enough to be a true #1. What more do you want?

Agree. So he's not a leader, not everyone is. Good production these last two key games. Not worth the elite dollars but a really good receiver nonetheless. I just don't see the need to demonize the guy because he didn't work out here in Buffalo.

He was working out just fine in Buffalo (some injuries unfortunately, but was health training camp 2017).......  The problem was not enough targets.

Did Darby, Gilmore and Watkins all have the stench of Whaley on them?

 

So if the Chiefs win in two weeks......then the stench of Whaley will have collected a SB ring in prominent roles each of the 3 years since he was fired?

 

So the tally would be Bills 0-54 in seasons with a SB win...........stench of Whaley 3-3.😂

 

Gilmore didn't, he was a Buddy boy. Darby did, but he didn't smell as much as Sammy.

It’s honestly tough to say whether John Brown would be better than Sammy. Sammy barely registers targets for the most explosive offense in football, despite going against far inferior cover guys than Hill and Kelce draw. And this, after being a total non-factor for an explosive LA Rams offense. 
 

I think the hate you see is Watkins is a disappointment production-wise and is too inconsistent and injury prone. The other hate is it seems like he doesn’t really have competitive fire. His comments about being down during the Texans game is evidence of that, as is the fact that he seems he would rather join a team to be the 3rd option, than try to go out and be the man somewhere.

The Rams are 4 deep and Cooks #s look pedestrian because of it.  They also make very little use of their TE and RBs compared to an Andy Reed offense.

Right now Josh is still developing so it isn't that easy to make an accurate assessment of our WRs.  Lets not forget that Robert Woods was a terrible WR according to many on this board.

Goff and/or McVay simply like targeting their slot receiver Kupp more often. Watkins is a great fit with KC and there are not many WRs better than Hill or Kelce atm

 

Plus Swatkins is banged up

 

Watkins makes our WR corps NFL competent. Not every move Beane makes is perfect. Tired of the Beane glorification

I like your enthusiasm, but I don't think anyone outside of Buffalo would agree. Sammy is much better than Brown who is limited in ability. You are being extra salty when you call him a #3.

No doubt his draft picks had the stench. Anyone else who was already here could be hosed down and possibly salvaged (ala Kyle Williams). The 2 outliers were Shaq Lawson (wants that $) and Lorenzo (defies all logic).

Did Patrick Mahomes have the stench of Whaley or did someone else make the biggest mistake in franchise history?:flirt:

For about the same money from what was market rate that year, he passed up being the possible no. 1 for the bears, cowboys, and packers, in order to be the fourth option in KC. People want to know why there is Sammy Watkins hate; it’s because many don’t think he has heart or competitive fire.

Whaley was a good GM. Just because someone has a different vision that doesn't involve tearing the house down doesn't mean they didn't make a few good moves.. even if they're a former Bills exec. Not every former Bill was trash. Not every GM's roster gets Wrexed. Not every GM has the successor completely wipe out everything he was working for.

 

After seeing the Titans and 49ers succeed I don't think a lower tier quarterback is as egregious a legacy as we make it

 

I blame Rex Ryan for how the Bills changed to the Beane regime more than anything

He was a #3 for the Rams and he's clearly not the #2 receiving option in KC, but whatever, call him a #2.

 

Last 3 seasons:

 

Watkins - 1,785 yds / 14 TD

Brown - 2,074 yds / 14 TD

 

It ain't that crazy. 

 

But much like waiting until week 15 or 16 for Robert Foster to catch a ball, we'll just assume that Sammy really catches fire next year.

Sammy is still a great player who if he became available would be a huge upgrade over average WR talent we now have.  Sammy can make the tough sideline catch and go deep,  i have no problem with him returning to the Bills. We need talent at WR and he would be a great start,  he will be a 21 million cap hit in 2020 and Chiefs would save 14 mill cutting him.

 

 

I know many fans keep mentioning his injuries but he look like he is finally over that foot issue.

I don't think Whaley was a "good" GM.......I think he was a road scout hired by a road scout GM and that was a bad fit for a football ignorant ownership group like the Pegs.............but he wasn't terrible and he left behind a lot of defensive talent and an offense that was among the league's most effective.

 

McDermott was a lackluster candidate with no clue about offensive football so hiring someone like that meant that he was either going to have to win over that prime-aged locker room with his coaching and charisma OR get rid of players with leverage who could afford to be skeptical.

 

They went with the latter.........which set the roster back at a time when they also had a lot of good older players.

 

In this time frame teams like the Eagles and Rams and Niners hired offensive minds who chose to build on considerably LESSER rosters than what the Bills had at the end of 2016.........and they've quickly become SB teams.

 

But the nice thing is that even though they self mutilated the roster and even though passing on Mahomes was probably the worst mistake in franchise history..........they still have a chance going forward if Allen pans out and they make good moves going forward.

 

As Belichick says you basically gotta' be making nothing but bad decisions to not be competitive in the NFL.

Perhaps you don't follow NFL football very closely but none of those teams had one player who was solely responsible for their success.

 

Obviously.

 

The excuse made for getting rid of those guys was that you couldn't win with those type of people.............which really couldn't have been proven more wrong.

 

It's ALL ABOUT winning SB's.

 

That's the whole point.

 

It's NOT about about participation trophies for being a fringe playoff team when better than 1/3 of the league makes the playoffs every year.

The Sammy hate here is so stupid. Some of y'all are ridiculous. SAD!!!

Their little jobs make them miserable.  He could have worded it differently but I understand exactly what he was talking about.  He was saying they arent qualified to make the judgements they are making.  Their are some on this board who do a good job of evaluation and there are others who like to pretend they can.

Unfortunately I think his decision to go there was money.  The same reason we decided to trade him.  His problem is injuries.  I think he has become a little less aggressive as a result.  I think that will pass.  He will never put up eye popping season stats in KC.  I'm not sure he understood that when he signed.  The TE and RBs are heavily utilized in Reed's Offense.

I want to clear this up for people.  Doug Whaley was not  competent as a GM. Try to remember this.  Thank you for your cooperation.

OK, let's play your silly game.  If the Bills had paid Watkins $16M/year, Gilmore $13M/year and kept Darby, you're saying the Bills would have won the SB?  :lol:

 

As for those specific players, Watkins isn't a major part of their success and is little more than Hogan was for the Cheaters.  Speaking of the Cheaters, they won SB's without paying $13M/year for a guy like Gilmore.  And as for Darby, he's nothing special, never even having made the Pro Bowl as an alternate.

 

But let me ask you: when the 49'ers beat the Chefs in the SB, what former Bill will you be touting then?
