Buffalo Bills Defensive Coordinator Leslie Fraizer has announced that he will take the year off - and - return to the team in 2024.


He should have been fired for giving up a FG in 13 seconds, he has constantly underachieved with his talent, come playoff time.

Evidently there is a new "trend" growing in the NFL.


When you want to keep an extremely talented Special Teams Coordinator - you add the title of "Assistant Head Coach".


That's how the Cleveland Browns poached Bubba Ventrone from the Colts - and - how the Packers followed suit - in keeping Rich Biasaccia.

Former NFL wideout Danny Amendola has joined the Las Vegas Raiders as a coaching assistant/returners.


John Elway is no longer a part of the Denver Broncos front office staff as his contract expired and was not renewed.

I think that was one of the biggest coaching gaffes in a good number of years.    I freely admit I didn’t think of it in real time.   Few did.   

But within a few days I read stories about how Buffalo elected not to cover Kelcie and the Bills/Frazier gave him a free release.  No attempt to slow him down.    KC basically ran the same play twice and got roughly 35 yards on two passes to Kelcie which put them in position for the game winning FG with ONE second remaining.   One second. 

To Buffalo’s credit, they didn’t fire Frazier.  But I think a good number of teams would have.

    • Yeah, Luck was reckless with his body. Which I think shortened his career. He also got tired of constantly rehabbing all the time. Yes, they need to teach AR to slide and don’t take those hits. 
    • I hope this works out for him and his wife. 
    • You don’t have to convince me Roseman is good at his job.   I literally said so in the post you felt necessary to respond to.    He’s very good at his job.   But he makes mistakes too as all GMs do.   That’s something that many here don’t understand.   
    • Hopkins is a million times better team player than AB. OBJ just got drafted by a bad team with a fading QB, and has been great apart from the recent injury and time-off. My point is, Hopkins has not shown any signs of being slowed down yet.
    • Agholor was hand picked by Chip Kelly, Roseman was not having control over that draft, IIRC.   Yeah, everyone will have misses. What separates Roseman from all other GMs and puts him in rarefied air is he doesn't restrict himself from getting high priced free agents to build a strong contending team even with unstable QB position, while being willing to Max out all the cap space he could. Hurts was not a proven quality QB last off-season, but their GM still had every other position fortified with quality starters and depth. He replenishes  RB room for cheap and with quality depth, and spends money on impact positions while drafting trenches 8 out of 10 times in the first round and mostly drafting there well. He fleeces other GMs very well on offloading contracts and getting great free agents at right time from right team. So many moves just don't work out by luck year after year. He's a very good grip on where to spend money and how to keep the roster a championship contender even with unanswered questions at QB position for last decade.    He does so much so well that his misses are negligible in the larger picture. He missed on Jefferson, but he got AJ and Smith, and now they're not going to lose sleep over that miss.
