Almost three years ago, Sean McDermott was named head coach of the Buffalo Bills. A lot has happened in the intervening time, most notably the Bills ending the longest playoff drought in North American sports and re-entering the postseason two years later.
Here is a partial list of what McDermott has done in his time in Buffalo. Leave your approval in the poll at the end of the post and your thoughts on McDermott in the comments section.
