As always, great interview and article by Ty Dunne.Interesting insight into his time with the Bills etc...

I guess so but Ty Dunne got a story of bull#### from Sammy so all he did was show how crazy Watkins is... Not really a good story TBH.

Yet another example of why this Bills organization struggled for almost two decades, before finally breaking through.

 

You constantly hear about NFL scouts doing crazy amounts of due-diligence on prospects (especially those slated to go 1st Round).  Their work habits.  Their personal lives.  Their medical history.  Yet somehow Doug Whaley and his guys happened to miss - or simply didn't care - that Sammy Watkins was completely loony toons and had serious substance abuse issues. 

 

It should also comfort fans that Brandon Beane/Sean McDermott walked in the door at One Bills Drive, and pretty much instantly realized he needed to go.  They immediately declined his 5th Year Option, and then showcased Watkins in exactly one preseason game before trading him off to the Rams.  I always figured the decision was about injuries and securing extra draft capital for a Quarterback.  The idea that Watkins didn't "fit" the culture seemed weird to me, because his off-field troubles weren't very public.  This certainly clears things up.

I remember all the heat they took for casting off all those misfits.

Some of the comments here are troubling. Mental health issues are no joke.

 

If you want to slam Sammy as the bust of a football player he was here, that's fine. I never liked that pick and didn't really like him as a player and fought people here on the "decoy" nonsense.

 

But some of the personal stuff here is pretty cruel. Dude was in his early 20's with what sounds like significant mental health issues. Lots of people with those problems self-medicate, especially from underserved populations where you don't really know what to do with all of that. 

 

Hopefully whether all that stuff is real or not, the dude can keep the mental clarity he supposedly has now. Even if he's just tricking himself with some of his philosophies, there's no harm in trying to turn negatives into positives.

You can believe what you will believe.  I believe the universe doesn't exist in the narrow confines that we think it does.  Ironically if you actually believe in physics and the teachings of Einstein, Tesla and various other brilliant minds they clearly talk about other dimensions and worm holes, dark matter, a universal energy source,  etc as being real and as far as I know none of those theories have been proven wrong, and in fact most have been proven right.

 

There is so much we have no clue about, but few people question things beyond what is directly in front of their face.

I'm curious about that caveat there "with anyone in our building that matters"

 

Wondering if Beane had a discussion with someone in the building who just woke up, read that tweet and said "Wow, did I just get Dissed Big Time"

I am happy things are working out for him. Now if I could just go back to my small job all would be good.

People also want to discount the transition from growing up in Florida and then suddenly living in upstate NY.  Buffalo is a nice town, but it may as well be a completely different planet (insert reptilian solar king joke here).  He was a 21 year old kid from the Deep South who was thrown onto a bad football team in upstate NY and expected to be the savior because of the draft capital spent to acquire him.  He got off to an incredible start to his career, but when he got hurt, the city turned on him.

 

He certainly didn’t do himself any favors with his partying, but he didn’t get into a bunch of trouble.  He’s a pretty good dude by just about every account.  It’s funny how the same people who will make every excuse in the world for one player show no quarter for others.

 

In any event, he’s been through a lot.  He played a huge role in winning a championship and seems to be eager to play a larger role next year.  It’s easy to forget that he’s still only 26.  If he can keep his mind and body right (two big ‘ifs’) he’s going to end his career with some really impressive numbers, a huge bank account, and likely multiple rings.

Every move had to be approved by someone in front office.  After Donahue was given complete power and went power hungry Ralph's handlers were given control.  I do not understand why the Pegulas did not remove a lot of the holdovers. Coach McD was first one who had ability to dismiss Overdorf but Beane decided to allow him to remain but took control.

 

And Sammy was not a lazy psychopath when he was drafted although he did not seem to want to play in Buffalo.

 

Again, what did overdorf have to do with sammy's failures? You said it, please back it up.

Wow.

 

Just wow.

 

He makes Antonio Brown look normal.  I’m not trying to be funny.  I hope Sammy gets some help.  


Sammy makes Dennis Rodman look like a model of stability.  Then again, Dennis always went all out on the court, no matter how wild he was off it.

So sad that we invested two # 1st rounders into a guy who had serious character issues.  When he wanted to play he looked like an all pro player and now i question the season he missed all those games if he just didn't care.  This is why the draft is such a crap shoot,  surprised Doug Whaley did not look deeper into Sammy's off the field activities .  I doubt the drinking and smoking pot started after he arrived in Buffalo

I certainly question the lizard king from Ft Myers and his ability to sense the wavelength of the dark spirits following my energy. 

 

Maybe I’m the crazy one, but I doubt it.

“So dumb. Unbelievably bad.   McDermotts another dud. 20 year drought, mark it down-“- ScottLaw 

 

oh it’s marked down alright. 
 

he broke the 20 year drought in a year where he traded away all of his best players.  In a year where everyone thought we were tanking.  He and Beane have been masterful in their rebuild.  The only thing yet TBD is whether or not Josh Allen is the right guy to deliver them the Lombardi.  Nearly everything else they’ve done has been on point imo.  

 

Among several things yet TBD just for 2020 are: a) how many games will the Bills win?  b) will the Bills make the playoffs?  c) will the Bills win the AFCE?  d) will the Bills win their first playoff game since Clinton was POTUS?   Also yet TBD is whether Josh Allen is good enough to be a respectable starter much less a franchise QB.  Don't be counting your Lombardis before they're won, dude.

Huh? The guy was just on the Super Bowl winning team.

Counting my Lombardis before they’re won?  Where did I do that?  It’s pretty much a consensus among those that know anything about football that our current roster is pretty stacked.  The only thing that is keeping us from being a super bowl favorite is QB play.  
 

If JA improves, we’re in the running for best team

in the league.  Not sure how that’s counting Lombardis but w/e.
