I am aware that Frazier is often a target of criticism here. But it seems that there are people who appreciate his achievements. Leslie, if you ever stumble across this web site, congratulations!

Quote

The Dr. Z Award is given for lifetime achievement as an assistant coach in the NFL. The award is named for Zimmerman, who covered the NFL for 29 years as Sports Illustrated’s lead pro football writer. His impact on the writing and football industries was profound. Zimmerman is widely considered one of the best football writers of all time, and his 1970 “A Thinking Man’s Guide to Pro Football” and revised 1984 “The New Thinking Man’s Guide to Pro Football” are textbooks to this day for young football writers trying to learn the game and trying to learn to write about the game. He started to cover the NFL in 1966, and he started at Sports Illustrated in 1979. Zimmerman stayed at SI until his writing career was cut short by a series of strokes in November 2008. He served as PFWA president during the 1982 season.

 

Quote

Frazier is in his 24th season as a coach in the NFL in 2022, and his sixth with Buffalo as defensive coordinator. He also has been the Bills’ assistant head coach since 2020. In 2021, Buffalo had the NFL’s number one total defense in yards allowed and the number one scoring defense, and in 2020, the Bills’ defense was third in total takeaways. Frazier’s Buffalo defenses have been ranked in the NFL’s top five in total defense yards in three of the last four seasons.

But what has he done for us lately? He has his brand new DL, he was his second all pro level CB, I want the defense to look good vs. good teams. I want to win a Super Bowl!  Is that asking too much?

 

Go Bills!

Ahhh! the story of human kind, the porr thinks he is not happy because what is missing in. his life is only related to money, the rich man is not happy because eiter he has not time to spend it, or he is too suspicious and thinks people likes him only because of his money, or what if he spends it and has nothing else and goes back in circles?? We used to complain about the poor piss staff we got, after Levy retired and now this...🤨

Leslie Frazier is a rock and an integral part of who and what the Bills are.

my favorite quote from Dr Z was back when he was draft analyst on espn during the 80s-90s...when the Jets made one of their usual weird picks...

 

"Jets dont know how draft, bigger problem is that they repeat every year"...

Frazier is an exceptional coach.  Those suggesting otherwise really are clueless.

Should of been us winning that big game last year and NOT EVEN Close... our Defense did not show up against KC.. Facts.. so some here including me still are a little angry. NFL NOT FOR LONG.  I will take what ever cheap shots that are going to come at me on this one.. IDK I stand by my morals and not hide behind them cause of others already being rude to people in this topic.

The defense didn't show up against may formidable opponents.  The defense did a great job pounding on young QBs and crappy teams.
