Marrone did really well this year with Hackett calling the plays. He really impressed me. The Syracuse forum I frequent is pretty upset Doug is taking Hackett with him. He was also the QB coach for Nassib.
Yeah, OC was not really a concern. Did Hackett call the plays at Syracuse or Marrone?
Yeah it wasnt, they could have brought Chan back IMO. Head coach has authority over the OC so i'm sure the head coach would stop him from sending a rookie on a new route with the game on the line or abandoning the run in a close game. I will miss Gailey's screen game.
Do we take him at 8 or trade back into the first to get him.
Kind of seems that it's fait accompli that he's a Bill in April
I have basically come to the conclusion that if they think Nassib can become a good QB, why risk him getting taken before the second round when it might set you back another year with your plans to move forward at QB?
I'd take Nassib at #8 no question. If Ryan freaking Tannehill can go #8 so can Nassib.
Sure, anything can happen...but nobody said Miami was smart either. But we've seen the Bills make some real reaches at around this naumber. No sense in doing it again. They should realize from the last decade that the draft is the place to fix issues and if you don't you get what they've given the last decade.
I don't think Nassib is such a demand that he will go before Round 2 if they don't take him at #8.
The K-Gun sounds awesome...but you need a Jim Kelly type to run it, and probably another good receiver. Spiller/Jackson as Thomas/Davis parallel is there, and Chandler can be Metzelaars...
The question is, do you draft Nassib for his familiarity with the offense? Can he be the signal caller of the new "K-Gun"?
The K-Gun sounds okay it's just you need a QB to do it. Not sure Fitz or Nassib are that guy. You need a Brees or rodgers type. Elite QB.
I'm getting a bit concerned that this may become Syracuse West. Sure, they improved a bit but let's not get carried away here either. 8-5 in College Football isn't that great(7-5 gets you to a Bowl game but you're one different result from being a .r500 result and depending on who you lose to 6-6 doesn't get you to a bowl game. I remember they played USC but I would bet some FCS team or two was on the schedule which helps a record out some.)
That was just bad drafting. Whitner was a reach. Maybin wasn't the best DE available, etc...
Whitner was a reach but he hasn't turned in the worst career. The other two were horrible picks. Is McCargo even in the league anymore? Maybin shouldn't be. I'm not sure what inspired either but Maybin didn't do a whole lot in college.
We could go on and on about picks, but Whitner is the only one of those guys who had done something in college that garnered attention(Going to tOSU doesn't hurt)Whitner has done alright, it's just it wasn't while in Buffalo...lol
Uh, the Nassib stuff aside, is it really a foregone conclusion that Fitz is gone? I haven't heard anything to that effect. Feelings on Fitz aside: unless they plan to bring in another FA vet, it makes no sense to draft a raw prospect at QB and have Tyler ****ing Thigpen as your fallback.
