The Buffalo Bills have tried to fix/start over/rebuild themselves for well over a decade now.
After their loss to the run-up-the-score Seattle Seahawks yesterday they were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs for the 13th straight season.
Yeah, the thirteenth straight season. Also, coincidentally the longest streak in the NFL.
The main reason for this is the ownership and the misguided signings (or lack thereof) of the GM Buddy Nix.
It’s not that the signings he made where bad (they weren’t, well not all bad anyway), it’s that he didn’t go far enough. Mario Williams started slow, but has come on nicely after becoming more healthy.
DE Mark Anderson has been absent most of the year having only appeared in five games and managing only one sack and 12 total tackles. On paper though, I couldn’t hate on the signing because it made sense. Pairing him with Williams and DT’s Kyle Williams & Marcel Dareus seemed to fit. It, obviously, hasn’t worked out.
The Vince Young signing was a bust, but no harm no foul as it was only a 1 year, $2 million dollar deal.
Now the lack of filling in the holes is what hurt the Bills. Through free agency and the draft they had ample opportunities to fill at least a portion of their glaring deficiencies. Read the rest of this entry »
“He’s my coach. I’ve got his back. Those people who want him fired, they must not understand football,” RB C.J. Spiller said Monday, per the BuffaloNews. “I mean, he’s been in this business for a long time. He understands what it takes to win. … For people to say he needs to be fired and all that stuff, that’s bogus, and I’m going to leave it at that.”
I’m not one for name calling, but C.J. Spiller appears to be delusional.
“Those people who want him fired, they must not understand football…” – Maybe I don’t understand football in the way you understand football, but I know enough that Chan Gailey should not be a head football coach in the NFL.
A coordinator? Sure, fine. A head coach? No.
His first season as a head coach in the NFL was a success, going 10-6, but followed it up with a disappointing 8-8 season. Both years were with the Dallas Cowboys and both years they made the playoffs, but exited after Wild Card round losses in both years.
Then he had a two year stint as offensive coordinator for the Miami Dolphins before moving on to become the head coach of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets. He underachieved his way to a 44-32 record from 2002-07.
After the Yellow Jackets bought Gailey out of his contract, the Kansas City Chiefs hired him to be their new offensive coordinator in 2008.
The Buffalo Bills then made Gailey their 15th head coach (and 5th in the last 10 years) in January 2010.
Since Gailey has taken over for the Bills he has compiled a win-loss record of 15-30 (as of 12/9/2012).
“He understands what it takes to win.”
His career NFL winning percentage of .429 seems to say otherwise. The truth is Chan Gailey needs to be fired. It’s just not working.
