    McDermott wants DC Bobby Babich to get a playcalling opportunity

    From the time Bobby Babich became the Bills’ new defensive coordinator in February, it’s been unclear to what extent he’ll run the show on defense, or whether head coach Sean McDermott will continue to call the defensive plays. McDermott is vowing to give Babich that opportunity, but whether he gets the job in the regular season is a different question.

    “There’s going to be intentionality on my part to make sure, whether it’s practice or preseason games, that Bobby’s given that opportunity,” McDermott said, via TheAthletic.com. “So it’s just a matter of when and for how long. Being a former play caller myself, six years before I got here and then last year again, you’re always having to knock off some of the rust.

    Ummm, isn't McD the one who makes that decision?

      I like it, if he struggles McD can take it back.

        Yes. Is that in question?

          You wouldn’t think so. But if he “wants” to see it happen, it makes it sound like he doesn’t have final say.

            I think his comment on intentionality clarifies that it's his call.

              I didn’t take it like you did. I took it as it’s his call and he wants to see if Babich is ready because he’d gladly give up the responsibility if he’s able.

                It’s just funny wording. I don’t know if that was the writer’s addition or if McDermott actually said that. Not a big deal. Just found it curious.

                    Any move that diminishes Marty’s responsibilities is a net win for the Bills. Let’s make him Coach Emeritus and give him responsibilities that have zero impact on the Bills day to day ops

                      Most of us want to see it before we believe it.

                      Marty has lost our confidence unfortunately.

                      Coach Emeritus .... can we do that immediately?

                          Oh how cute, there’s still a couple outliers who “trust the process.”

                            McDermott and Beane will always hold a special place in team history as they not only pulled a perennial loser out of the abyss, they turned them into a top 3-5 team that no one wants on their schedule. McD has made some questionable calls over his HC career but he’s learning as well.

                            Everyone wants that lightning-in-the-bottle coach that has major success in the first couple of years but I’d rather have sustained success which could lead to a consistent winner, with the right QB. Josh can be that guy, and will be that guy. It takes a bit of luck as well for that one (1) team that wins the SB every year.

                              OMG...using common sense, logic and intellectual honesty to expose the absurd SMDS of one of the biggest sour pusses on this board who literally ROOTED for the Bills to LOSE OUT after only week five last year.

                              STOP THAT!!! You are making WAY too mush sense
