Drafting Cody and passing on DK, plus trading Wyatt .... not Beane’s finest hour

It happens, it could have been worse we could have drafted the "right Josh".

Hopefully their Winters obsession chills out.

Jeesh.  Besides Beane picking Ford, there is not a ton of evidence for me to think Ford is a long term solution at any position on the line. My hope is next year, the Bills put Ford in one spot and leave him there. The Bill need to only look at Williams as an example for putting a player in a position to excel.

This seems odd: most pro players who have a scope to fix a meniscus are typically our for four weeks or so. Three to four months is more typical of one of us dealing with this. 

Doesn’t it depend if it’s a trim or a repair? This is a full repair so seems right

Athletes realistically should be in better condition than us and also more used to the rehab process since already work out etc. Toss in have the finest doctors available and more free time to do physical therapy etc.

Exactly: that’s my point.

This is a lazy take-I think the Metcalf vs Ford debate has some merit, but Teller had shown nothing and people were excited that the Bills got anything done him

When we drafted him, he was viewed as a potential pro-bowl caliber guard who could translate to tackle.   
 

We tried him at tackle.  That didn’t work.  He was also a rookie, and rookie tackles typically struggle. The only rookie tackle who’s looked legit from this past draft is Becton, and he gets hurt every game.  
 

At guard, I think he has the talent to be very good there, but we wasted one year at tackle and he’s been banged up most of this year at guard.

It may. I’ve had the surgery done seven times and they don’t typically repair them anymore according to my ortho. Partials they just let heal unless there is debris (just a minor scope then). Perhaps my doc is wrong...but I trust him. I’ve torn literally everything in my right knee save my LCL.

Theres two options here: 

 

Trim: Quick recovery

Repair: IR and long recovery. 

 

Clearly hes going for a repair and not a trim. Reasonable as he is early on in his career.

I believe 3-4 weeks is if they scope and remove part of the meniscus. 
 

It sounds more likely they are doing a full meniscus repair/recover attempt rather than a removal and therefore the recovery is typically 3-4 months.  
 

The repair/recovery is the better long term option, but many players in season opt for a partial removal to allow them to get back out there.  
 

Not sure what all went into the decision.

I hear ya. Going into next year just make him the LG and forget about all this moving around. Some players are jack of all trades, like Feliciano, others are not. I’m hoping Ford can be the king of left guards and pair with Dawkins for the next 5-10 years.
