He went to the playoffs in 1995, 1996, 1998 and 1999

 

Ha. I don't follow instructions very well.

Though he wouldn't be my answer if I could only choose ONE drought era player....I get the sense that Jairus Byrd would be a stud playmaker in McDermott's scheme.

 

Honestly, he crossed my mind as well... I'm just not sure how he would do in our system where we aren't traditional in safety roles- Poyer is technically the deep man, but he and Hyde will rotate back and front so much that it's not one or the other. Byrd, if I remember correctly, was almost exclusively a deep safety?

Stevie Johnson? 

 

Low key solid choice. Him and Brown and Beasley would be a great WR core.

Aaron Schobel, maybe Mario.

 

IMO, as much as I love him, Freddie is a wasted choice since RBs are a dime a dozen.

Terrence McGee. Would love to see him opposite Tre White, plus he would be a huge boost on kick returns.

Was he a better zone or man corner? I have no idea what we primarily ran when he was here, though I'm sure we switched regularly.

I've seen threads like this before, but not sure one has popped up this offseason. 

 

 

Freddy seems like an obvious choice, but Mario might be my pick.

Can you imagine Freddy hyped up on some of that Process *****? He'd be a first ballot for sure!

I would go with Takeo Spikes out of the list of choices. He, Edmunds, and Milano on the field together would be sick.

Drought-era Bills = losers, so it would be best to get them before they were tainted by playing here. I’ll take 49er-era TO.

I once heard a fairly famous personality asked what his favorite golf course was. His response was that you had to take Augusta National out of the conversation because nothing else compares to it. In that same mentality I think you need to take Freddie out of this conversation as he is loved by so many here. With that in mind, I agree with those that picked Aaron Schobel.

If you could bring one drought era Buffalo Bill (someone who never played in the playoffs with the Bills) in their prime, and drop them on this roster, who would it be? 

 

**Edit: For the sake of argument, let's say that "prime" means the high point of their career with the Bills. So for instance, whatever Gilmores best year was when wearing the red white and blue, not last year. 

 

 

 

This is what got me started down this rabbit hole: 

 

 

 

 

 

Freddy seems like an obvious choice, but Mario might be my pick. 

 

My first thought was to skirt the rules and say Eric Moulds - given our need for a #1 WR.

 

But I'll play nice and say Freddie.   His football character is often praised but I think some fans under value his actual talent.  In his prime, he could make yards out of nothing.

Give me Aaron Schobel in a McDermott defense, please. Edge problem solved. 

 

was about to post this, and saw yours.  agree 100%.  Guy would have 15 sacks a season in this D.

Aaron Schobel, Eric Moulds, Brian Moorman, Terrence McGee, Marshawn Lynch... done

 

Moulds would be the easy choice, but Im almost positive he made the playoffs.

Lee Evans would have been a borderline HOFer with Josh Allen and this coaching staff.

 

 

I'm not so sure about this.  One of Allen's biggest weaknesses this year was his lack of accuracy on the deep ball.  And that was the ONE thing that Losman did really well.

The Houston game where he and Losman connected on two 60+ td passes was pretty. Him across from Brown would be difficult to defend. 

 

I remember that game. They hit on two 83-yard TD bombs in the first half. Evans had 11 catches for 265 yards and two TDs that game. That was '06. He should've gone to the Pro Bowl that year. 82 receptions, 1292 yards, 8 touchdowns, his best season for his career. That ProFootballReference.com is one heck of a rabbit hole...

The never been to the playoffs caveat makes this more difficult as it eliminates Pat Williams, Moulds, Rueben Brown, etc. 

 

I’d have to go with Jason Peters. That one addition turns the Oline into a top 10 unit.
