Sour relationships and lack of continuity have haunted the Buffalo Bills during their 17-year playoff drought.
The hiring of general manager Brandon Beane puts the Cheap Mls Jerseys franchise on the right track to end that dysfunction.
Beane during his introductory news conference Friday spoke glowingly about his relationship with coach Sean McDermott and provided key details on how the hierarchy is going to operate.
Beane spent 19 years with the Panthers and served as Carolina’s assistant general manager for the past two seasons. There, Beane worked with McDermott, who was the Panthers’ defensive coordinator for six seasons.
“We built a good relationship in Carolina,” Beane said. “I trust Sean, and Sean trusts me. I think we’re going to make a heck of a partnership.”
It’s a relationship the Bills haven’t had since 2001, when Tom Donahoe and Gregg Williams were paired together as GM and coach.
Since that pair broke up, when Williams was fired in 2003, the franchise hasn’t had GM-coach continuity, which is imperative for NFL teams.
It worked out better than the NFL had any right to expect.
More than 70,000 fans on an unseasonably warm April evening turned the area outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art into a giant cocktail party that looked like a blast to attend.
The aerial and wide-angle views captured the excitement as well.
It wasn’t just the camera shots and cool lighting that gave the draft a raucous feel either. Goodell set the tone by channeling his inner Vince McMahon and encouraging the crowd to boo him even louder as he stepped to the podium for the first time.
