I don’t think I can overstate how much I love this move and I can’t believe how long it took for a team to actually pull such a stunt. I guess that’s why they’re called Bills Mafia, one fuck up and your outta there. The best part about all of this is that the Bills made their decision strictly off of a couple websites’ draft grades, that’s the only reason I can think of to can your GM, literally the day after the Draft. I mean at this point most of the guys the Bills had drafted hadn’t even flown into Buffalo, but old man
Ralph Wilson , I mean old man Terry Peluga had seen enough. Peluga read every draft grade from CBS to ESPN and decided that instead of letting his GM develop the team he drafted, he’d rather bring in someone new.
Knowing that the NFL is a copycat league, I am just salivating at the idea of more teams doing this. They should round the average of every pick per team and if your team averaged under a C your GM should be fired tout suite. If only the Colts had thought of this strategy. Grigson’s ass would’ve been grass the second he picked Phillip Dorsett and for all we know Andrew Luck would’ve held, nay hoisted the Vince Lombardi trophy by now, instead of you know, looking like a crash-test dummy.
On the plus side, at least the new GM had all the hard work done for him. This would be like getting elected Vice President only to have the President get assassinated on inauguration day. The legwork has been done, now all you gotta do is keep your name out of any headlines and it should be a smooth 4 years before you’re shit canned like your predecessor.
P.S. Shock of the century that Jerry Jones never thought of this. This seems right up his alley. Leave it to the team that lost 4 straight Super Bowls to come up with an idea as ingenious as this
