The trade reminded me of the Mcgahee trade, except that we have already drafted his replacement. I remember being a little down, although i knew it was going to happen, as bills rb's always seem to become favorites of mine. After hearing about the Randy Moss Trade, i do think we got good value for Lynch. However, the problem with player for picks is that the fans want to know what they get, or at least i do. Its like finding your christmas present wrapped up in your moms closet in mid november....just dying with anticipation to see whats inside. With that said, I looked back in time to see who we got with those three picks we recieved for Mcgahee. Wouldnt you know it....strait out of the Wikipedia....
|3||92||Buffalo Bills||Trent Edwards||QB||Stanford||Pac-10||from Baltimore |
|7||239||Buffalo Bills||C. J. Ah You||DE||Oklahoma||Big 12||from Baltimore |
2008 draft...we apparently gave it back to baltimore, so i cant trace what we actually got...so i copied the next pick which was our 3rd....take it as relevent as you want.
|3||71||Baltimore Ravens||Tavares Gooden||LB||Miami (FL)||ACC||from Baltimore via Buffalo and Jacksonville|
|3||72||Buffalo Bills||Chris Ellis||DE||Virginia Tech||ACC
So essentially, we got Trent for Mcgahee. then picked Marshawn to fill the void. Hate on the Nix/Gailey duo as much as you want, buy I see things like this as just taking out the trash. I love Beastmode, and dont think he was trash; but I can see how they are just clearing house and setting a foundation with who they like. Resigning Kelsey is still a weird move to me, but maybe they need his leadership inhouse for the young players, and this being an uncapped year, they can take most of the hit to his contract this year and not cripple themselves in the future, and keep around a guy who is good for the lockerroom. i can live with it. Do youre thing Buddy, do youre thing. Go Bills!
