The Bills' management just wired twelve bricks of C4 to their chests and they're planning to dive off the highboard into a pool emptied of water and filled with filament of mercury detonators.
Am I serious?
Oh yeah. Let's look at what realistically happens here. Henry can see the writing on the wall; he flipped out when the pick was announced. So what's he do? He practically kills himself becoming the best running back of 2003, that's what.
Then what? Well ... because the Bills don't have him under a long contract, they have a choice between letting him go for virtually nothing and enraging the fans in the process OR they sign him to a contract that A) They don't want to honor and B) Other teams won't likely touch due to the cap crunch. [The Bills may have other options; I'm not that up on the Franchise tag and such. My point is that they're likely going to get bunged.]
This is another Bungles type move. You don't need this guy right now, so why use a 1st rounder on him? The Bills made some defensive improvement through free agency but they need alot more and should have drafted for their defense in the 1st.
I guess with all of the good moves the Bills have made in the last couple of years, they were overdue for some bad moves. Getting rid of Price was bad enough, but this draft pick is just ludicrous. I don't care what their (financial) reasoning was in letting Price go; it was faulty. They only had a handful of great players, and he was one of them. When you go out in the garden to work, you pull the weeds, not the healthy plants. Letting go of an expensive, declining player like Emmitt Smith may be good strategy, but letting go of a rising star like Price is pure insanity.
