Probably because we are on the knife's edge of the most disappointing/worst season of McD's tenure and his job has never been more vulnerable

Then dropping it after the Denver game would have been the better time to do it.

And Dorsey was if you did not fall for the agenda that was being pushed by some to deflect from McClappy's defense giving up multiple game losing drives that put us in the position that we are in:

 

2022 Buffalo Bills Offense

 

2023 Buffalo Bills Offense:

 

 

 

Jaguars:  Bills scored 7 points in the first 3Q. 

Giants: Bills scoreless for first 3Q.  Scoreless.  Against the #26 defense in the NFL

NE: 3 points in 1st half, 10 points in first 3Q - against a 2-5 team

Tampa: 24 points in first 3Q against #10 D.  Looked good.

Bengals: 7 points in 1st half, whole team looked horrid

Denver: 8 points in 1st half.

 

I don't think we need a bunch of FrankenStats to tell us that the Offense looked disjointed and often ineffective until far too late in the game for a 6 week stretch.

Loser HC and loser owner don’t make for a good combination…

Don’t forget the GM that basically said “Von has never assaulted me personally so I think he’s probably a good guy.”

It better be Harbaugh. There's no reason why it can't be.

Benjamin Albright just said, if Buffalo job becomes open he believes Ben Johnson will go there instead of Chargers someone just asked on Twitter.

Go ahead and ignore reality and non-biased metrics. Got it.

 

I see that you ignored the stats from last year as well.

 

The fact is that, without McClappy's defense giving up so many game losing drives, we would be sitting pretty for the playoffs.

It’s def interesting timing. Makes me think Ty dunne is more bills fan / McD hater and less journalism

 

def more editorial. But there’s def smoke here ppl

lets not pretend it’s JUsT a hit piece. 
 

the ONLY thing I care about is that it portrays as McD as a bumbling fool and I worry it impacts critical thinking on the fly in big games

Said this earlier, but listening to NYC sports radio guys getting hot and bothered about this on my way home from work was an eye opener. I tune in to bask in the latest Zach/Saleh/Jets bashing and instead I get this? 

 

 

Imagine if this story came out right before week 1 this season.

 

McDermott would not have been safe in that stadium.

It's an interesting question.  I listened to Dunne on the Schopp and Bulldog show this afternoon and it sounded very targeted (I won't say biased but that's probably the closest word).

 

He said all the people quoted had positive comments about Sean but even more positive about Beane and even said that Beane probably put out more fires than most people know about because of Sean.

 

Made references to Allen being the best thing since sliced bread and Sean was always going to hold him back. (paraphrasing).

 

 

I honestly do think that the digging and info that came out wasn't true and all happened but at the same time, I also believe that Dunne has an axe to grind with McD since he doesn't give "new media" media credentials.

 

 

 

I'm having trouble parsing that - do you mean "info that came out was true and all happened"?

 

I believe it probably happened, but I also think as you allude there are probably a bunch of positive things that didn't make it into the article.

 

Like I said, Dunne makes his living by publishing controversial takes.  A nuanced or balanced take wouldn't gain him subscriptions.  I think in this case, it may not have had as good a result since it's gotten so much media airplay that people will roll with that and not go subscribe.
