Coaching salaries are a line item budget that is not dictated by a CBA. They talked a good game last time, but bottom line wouldn't pay for a top coach and a new staff. Funny, how many asst. coaches were retained because they didn't want to buy out their contracts.
Players salarie have to be spent due to the CBA. Throw a big name in once in a while to sell tickets. I do give them credit for retaining Stevie, Freddy and Kyle, but they have to spend near the cap.
The culprits are the money people at OBD. They are probably compensated through bonus incentives from bringing in a season under budget.
I am sure someone from the past or a coach on this current roster would love to be promoted... Ralph would love it because he "knows" them all...
Kirk Ferentz might have worn out his welcome in Iowa City.
No coach of any significance is going to come here with clowns like Ralph Wilson and Russ Brandon in charge.
This franchise a stench of ineptitude with those two guys here, it only goes away when they are gone.
If the team isn't sold between now and the draft, I don't want buddy NIX to draft a QB, he'll pick the wrong one for sure.
Wait until we have a capable owner & GM combo to actually start the proper rebuilding.
Maybe Brian Billick, but that is about it! And their is a reason no organization has wanted anything to do with him, (i.e. his ego as an offensive genius) He was an offensive genius with Randy Moss, Chris Carter, Jake Reed, and Antonio Smith, an offensive egotist in 9 year in Baltimore!
But other than that their is a reason Coordinators turn the Bills down. Like Brian Shotenhiemer, it's not like he was that highly regarded, and his own job safe, and he turned down an interview with one of only 32 teams. That is the thing their are only 32 employers in the NFL, you would think they would jump at any opportunity since they may not get another chance, and he said, uh no thanks, I'll take my chances with Mark Sanchez, and Woody Johnson!

With the talent that we now have on the roster, I bet someone like Harbaugh could come in here with a new QB and mop up. I could be wrong, but I think it's more coaching than talent. I just don't think some of these guys are all that bad. Look at the change on D in 1 year in Houston when Wade came in. Some guy might come in here determined to get Mario and Marcell fired up along with Kyle and Mark Anderson. We still obviously need help at QB, CB, LB & WR and some S depth.

Well, the Bills could put the offensive coordinator in play. Give Curtis modkins the calls. How bad can it be.
Let him call the game, Chan cannot do it.
i'll take Rob Ryan or Fewell....These two are about due for a head coaching job.
There were three main issues that caused problems in getting guys last time:
1) Unsureness about the future. Nobody wants to take a job when you're not sure who the owner will be one, two, three or four years from now, and thus not sure who the GM will be and thus not be sure who the coach will be. This hasn't changed. The fact that Ralph has appeared so little lately means it's even a bigger concern than it was last time.
2) No franchise QB and not top two or three pick to get the best talent that year. Even worse of a problem now, as we're likely to be drafting in the mid-teens. Still a massive problem.
3) Little talent. This has improved quite a bit, but it was always the least important variable. Any confident solid coach will think he can coach up decent players and over three or four years bring in a bunch of new good players. It's improved, but it never was a big variable.
There would be very little interest in this position among the highest level candidates.
The exception might be Marty Schottenheimer, who would be a terrific coach, but who Ralph turned down last time.
My pick would be Mike McCoy. He managed to make the Broncos offense work with Orton, Tebow, and Manning. Three very different quarterbacks. This shows me he is very flexible and has what it takes to turn whatever offense we have next year into a possible top 10 offense.

I am not a number, I am a free robot.
Read my blog of way-out-there movie reviews... and die:
Maybe the little midget trainer can give it a shot.
Ilike Andy Reid as head coach and Singletary as defense
