On this episode of Talking Buffalo, Patrick Moran reviews the 2023 job performance of Buffalo Bills general manager Brandon Beane, ranging from re-signing his own free agents to adding new ones, the draft and an notable in-season trade.

For a third consecutive season the Bills saw their Super Bowl hopes come crashing down with a divisional round playoff loss and the second straight time it’s happened at home in Orchard Park? How much blame does Beane deserve for that? According to Patrick, not much. He talks about being extremely pleased with the roster Beane constructed over the past year in terms of both talent and especially roster depth. Buffalo was crippled with injuries for a second straight year but Beane strategically had enough quality veteran depth to keep the train chugging as the Bills did capture their fourth consecutive divisional title.

From bringing back Jordan Poyer and Tyrel Dodson to adding guys like Leonard Floyd, Connor McGovern and David Edwards in addition to finding two immediate starters in the draft and adding Rasul Douglas before the trade deadline, Patrick feels Beane did everything realistically possible to have the Bills in position to win a Super Bowl in 2023.

Instead, the blame goes to the combination of bad injury luck late in the season and the reality that too many Bills star players not named Josh Allen fell on their face against the Chiefs in the playoffs. That and plenty more is discussed today.
