    Jake Fromm has intangibles to take Buffalo Bills backup QB job this offseason

    https-::www.buffalorumblings.com:202026:21245095:jake-fromm-has-intangibles-to-take-buffalo-bills-backup-qb-job-this-offseason-2020-nfl-draft



    ďThis guy, heís a winner at the highest level of college. You look at all the guys that come out of the SEC,Ē said Beane. ďHeís got all the intangibles. Heís smart. When I went down to that school to watch him practice, at that point they didnít know if he would come out... They said this guy would be there 11, 12 at night with the coaches walking out the door at the same times the offensive coaches are. Just a guy who loves everything about the game, the full process, the preparation, and that matters. Listen if he had a big time cannon arm, or he was 6-5, those types of things, he would have gone day one. Heís got all the other things.Ē


    The preparation and the process led the Bills to him. Itís something McDermott and Beane have preached since they entered the building. Itís something Josh Allen has exuded since he became the Billsí starting QB, too. Now the decision-makers are saying it about the guy drafted to be his backup.


    ďHeís a country boy, loves ball, breathes ball, eats balls, sleeps ball, whatever it is,Ē continue Beane. ďThatís who he is and heís very smart. They bragged, this guy is a coach on the field, he understands things. Obviously this offseason, itís not gonna be the easiest for a quarterback to pick up a pro-style offense. I donít know how quick thatís going to happen for him depending on when guys are allowed in the building. Heís going to be doing a remote here until the rules change, things open up, but heíll definitely fit in. Heís a good guy, good character, a very high character person. Iím sure heís going to come in, humble, as he did when he got to Georgia.Ē

    OPIV wanted the bills to draft OT Hakeem Adeniji instead of Fromm who went 13 picks later to the Bengals

    Bills should have moved up to take him. Another Beane fail.

    I wanted the Bills to draft someone who had any chance of helping the team this season, even a slim one. At best he’ll get stashed on the practice squad. At worst, he’ll do well against preseason scrubs, unseat Barkley and if Allen gets hurt (which is likely because of his playing style and the FO ignoring the OL), it’ll be Peterman part II on the field.

    I get it, 5th round draft picks rarely contribute. But Kyle Williams did. I’d rather take someone like that who might have helped, even if the chances are slim, over someone who definitely won’t.

    No, no, that he looked at his crystal ball and saw that he was going to be there without having to entertain trading up was not a dumb move. [/OpIv37]

    And I hope that Fromm has been working on his arm strength and getting comfortable with The Duke.

    And I liked hearing this part:

    “Obviously Josh is our starter. Matt has been a great backup for us. I don’t know if he’ll be able to knock Matt off. We’ll see about that,” said Beane following the draft. “We could definitely go with two quarterbacks, we could go with three quarterbacks.”
    Barkley is meh and if Fromm shows any aptitude, I'd rather he played than Barkley.

    It's all standard GM fluff.

    So now we have a 4th and 5th rounder certain posters "hate ".

    Day 3 picks have been passed over at least 3 times by all 32 teams.

    Knock, knock..

    I don't hate the Bills. I love the Bills. I hate their results. Need I remind you?

    Last playoff win was 1995.
    Last division title was 1995
    Last home playoff game was 1996
    Only 4 seasons this century with winning records
    Only 2 playoff games in the last 20 years, both first round losses

    Clearly, there's been so much to like about this team

    Every off season, I come on here and I see all the problems during the off-season, and everyone argues with me. Then the season starts and all the problems come to light and the team under-performs. Then the next off-season, everyone wants to believe we fixed all the problems... lather, rinse, repeat. I want this team to succeed. My fandom just isn't dependent on being able to delude myself on thinking the team is better than they are.

    For so many of you, it's easier to make it about me and direct all your frustrations with the team on me for pointing it out. But it won't make the results on the field any better.

    Haha. No. You ****ing hate the Bills with a passion rarely seen, even by fans of other teams. It's obsessive and excessive.

    You are the least self aware person I have ever met.

    It's easier for you to blame me than to accept the reality of the team.

    Nonsense.

    Reading your obsessive and smearing posts.....and then saying you "love the Bills" is exactly like, after reading ,my posts in the political forum and me saying....

    I don't hate Donald Trump. I love Donald Trump. I hate his results. Need I remind you?

    Bankrupted several times including cash-cow casinos which he ran into the ground
    Never served elected office and said he is the ONLY person to "save the country" from Armageddon
    Put forth racist lies about President Obama's birthplace
    Has lied over 16,000 times since taking office
    Obsessively insults anyone who does not bow down and kiss his feet in praise
    Is responsible for tens of thousands of needless deaths because he ****ed up the virus response from day one

    Clearly, there's been so much to like about this president

    Every election year, I come on here and see all the problems of the country, because of Republican bullcrap, and everyone argues with me. Then the Republicans take office and all the problems come to light and the country under-performs. Then the next election, everyone wants to believe Trump & the GOP fixed all the problems... lather, rinse, repeat. I want this county to succeed. My fandom just isn't dependent on being able to delude myself on thinking Trump and the Republicans are better than they are.

    For so many of you, it's easier to make it about me and direct all your frustrations with the federal government on me for pointing it out. But it won't make the results in the country any better.

    Given that Barkley is no world beater and at-best a career backup, Fromm making the team over him isn't far-fetched at all. I've been an advocate of taking a QB in the later rounds on the off-chance you hit on one. Fromm was a worthwhile gamble.

    As a 5th rounder, Fromm was a steal. I think he will win the backup QB job, and because of intangibles and football IQ, will do just fine if Allen goes down.
    Should have known, way back in 1960 when we drafted Richie Lucas Number 1, that this would be a long, hard ride. But who could have known it would be THIS bad?

    I agree. Barkley's got nothing on him talent-wise and has proven he's a career backup. Ken Dorsey is the QB coach and can replace what Barkley might have to offer there.

    As a fifth rounder, Fromm was pissing the pick into the wind. He’ll be Peterman part II if he’s forced to play.

    I get it: fifth rounders usually aren’t contributors, but this is one of the few times when you n ow from the moment the pick was made that he DEFINITELY won’t be a contributor this year and most likely won’t be in the future. There are only so many draft picks and roster spots, only so much cap space, to try to improve the team. It’s nonsensical to make a pick like that when they didn’t even try to upgrade the OL. Chances are slim that a fifth round draft pick would be better than our current starters, but a slim chance is better than zero chance.

    Depends... If Allen never gets hurt then no..... The next time Allen gets hurt you will be glad Fromm is replacing him and not Barkley
