How short the human memory is. Sometimes I wonder if politicians think the public is really that stupid and in this case does Doug Whaley think the same way?
Heading into this draft, the Buffalo Bills allowed Jairus Byrd to walk without any compensation in return. This is still a HUGE hole. The Bills did not address this in free agency and ignored the position in the draft. They actually showed the exact opposite in that it looks like the team is trying to outscore opponents. I said it before and I will say it again, the team is going to regret letting Byrd walk.
The Bills also missed the opportunity to get a quarterback. This is the most important position on any football team. The odds of EJ Manuel starting and finishing 16 games are slim at best. I was screaming at my Ipad on day three as AJ McCarron and Zach Mettenberger were still on the board! But my pleas were ignored; maybe they couldn’t hear me across the vast expanse of ocean that separated us.
In any event, I hope the General Manager doesn’t think these decisions are easily forgotten. These holes don’t just disappear; they get bigger when September rolls around. What do you think Buffalo?
