Good to see the Bills are in mid-season form

    Pretty good hire for Buffalo. Who he brings in as his OC is the key and who they get to play QB is a bigger issue but overall a solid hire

    Yeah, like I said a pretty standard NFL hire which when dealing with the Bills is excellent

    By life support, you mean that he'll get to enter free agency with a ton of teams looking for a starting QB and him being basically the only one available, right? I wish I were on life support.

    Supposedly Mike McCoy is the guy he wants as his OC.

    Life support as far as his tenure with the Bills. I think Lynn getting the job would have meant Taylor coming back at about 95%. With this hire its probably 50-50. As far as QB's I believe Cutler, Glennon, and a few others are available this off-season as well.

    Glennon can fill in for a year while someone better develops under him, and Cutler sucks. Tyrod is the only one likely to get a long-term deal at $15-20 mil if I had to guess (and obviously Cousins if he makes it to free agency).

    Edit: And I think Cutler is signed through 2020 but there's a lot of speculation that the Bears will move on from him.

    Edit x2: This year's top free agent QBs:

    Tier 1:
    Kirk Cousins
    Tyrod Taylor

    Tier 2:
    Fitzpatrick
    Glennon
    Matt Barkley
    Brian Hoyer
    Blaine Gabbert

    Tier 3:
    Case Keenum
    Shaun Hill
    Geno Smith
    EJ Manuel

    Tyrod will easily be the most sought-after if the Bills don't retain him (excluding Cousins, who I just don't think Washington will let go of)

    I think it would be in the Bills best interests to bring him back and try to re-work that contract to make it a bit more team friendly. Knowing the Bills though they will probably do the exact opposite. At this point with no better options and a weak QB class, might as well bring him back.

    I would rather have Taylor than Glennon. Cutler is Cutler, not worth discussing. I like Cousins but like you said don't see him making it out of Washington. Only thing about Cousins he tends to make mistakes at worst possible time.

    Glennon could prove a worthwhile pick up but could be a huge bust as well

    McDermott HC
    McCoy OC
    John Butler Secondary coach with Texans as DC from what is out on the street. Buddy of McDermott's and actually pretty good secondary coach. Obvioulsy D will have heavy influence from HC

    Seems like a decent staff. Need to hit it out of the park in this years draft. Having the first two picks actually play versus being hurt would be a step up from last year.

    I think every one of these candidates are using McCoy to get hired...lol. Vance Joseph told Denver he can bring Mike McCoy back to Denver if they hire him to be their OC. And that ownership has strong ties with McCoy so they are happy about that. Will be interesting to see who McCoy hitches his wagon too

    Buffalo not getting Anthony Lynn says to me he didn't want the job.
    Tyrod Taylor is not taking a haircut to stay with Buffalo. He had the surgery so he may not even pass a physical by March 11th.
    Why Buffalo is nickel diming Taylor makes no sense. The market rate for QBs is known and getting Taylor to take 12-13 million instead of 15-18'million just won't happen.
    I guess Buffalo will be drafting a QB. Or Cutler/Romo/Glennon take 1 year deals.

    I think the rumors that Buffalo already decided to move on from Tyrod suggests that Buffalo didn't want Lynn; hard to say if that was mutual or not, but once those reports came out, I assumed Buffalo was hiring someone from outside the organization.

    Taylor already indicated he wouldn't be against re-negotiating his deal.

    I think Buff moved on from Lynn, not the other way around.

    Love the hire. Seems the Pegula's "get it" after the Rex gamble.

    I'm getting on board with hiring McDermott and I like hiring an experienced guy like McCoy as OC if that happens. If anything. at least McDermott was still wanted at his last job before the Bills hired him.

    Would have preferred McCoy but Norv would be a good hire to.

    McCoy has a lot of options he better be leveraging this into the most money he can get
