Happy Hour Replay: Doug Whaley relives draft highs 'n lows
Plus, the former Buffalo Bills GM offers his thoughts on Russ Brandon, finding quarterbacks in today's NFL and the 2014 draft.
Good morning, everyone. Hope you’re all doing great.
Here’s the Happy Hour replay with former Buffalo Bills general manager Doug Whaley and director of personnel, Jim Monos, for anyone who missed it. Thanks again to everyone who was able to spend a Friday night with us. Whaley got into just about everything in the video above…
Russ Brandon, and a point folks in WNY may forget.
The 2014 draft, and why Sammy Watkins was the pick.
Finding quarterbacks in today’s NFL.
How important synergy between coaches and the front office must be. (He lived the downside)
Memorable draft moments, including the time he was writhing in pain with cramps and the time a couple of strangers wandered into the war room.
As a reminder, these Happy Hours are “unlisted” on the YouTube channel, thus exclusive to subscribers right here. A week ago, Richie Incognito was a tad too extreme to share so that’s why we didn’t have a replay in this space. If you’re interested in how that went, feel free to shoot me a message at firstname.lastname@example.org.
And if there’s anyone else in the past you missed, just let me know and I’ll send you the video. Working on a way to have these all in one spot at GoLongTD.com.
We’ll be going big here at Go Long Wednesday through Saturday for the draft.
The night before everything begins, at 6 p.m. (EST) on Wednesday, we’ll have a subscribers hangout at Hamburg Brewing Company in Western New York — first beer on Go Long! Let’s hope the weather holds up but, right now, we’ll aim to set up shop outside in the back. I’ll be sure to email a reminder Wednesday AM.
And then Thursday, Friday and Saturday night, feel free to join our Zoom Happy Hours. We’ve got Coastal Carolina running back CJ Marable (who you may have read about here) locked in for Night No. 1. He’s got an awesome personality, too. I think you’ll all enjoy him.
Think someone in your life would be interested? We’d love it if you shared Go Long with a friend. And if your friend subscribes, we’ll be sure to send you a hoodie or crew. Just send a note at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks so much everyone.
