Now, I dont think we will win out but if we did... we would be 10-6 which would be the best record this team has seen since 1999. Which, IMO, would already make Chan better then any coach here since Wade Phillips. Even at 9-7, it would be the best record this team has seen in a long *** time. Dont forget that we are in a new defensive system with new players. Things dont improve overnight. They improve over the course of the season. Its possible the defense gets better and better and it carries to next year. Its possible we pick up some miricle QB next year and really improve. Then what happens? What happens if we improve to a playoff team next year. That throws out everything people have said. Even this year is still a possibility. Not likely but still possible.
What a stupid, idiotic, and *****ic premise. Are we really positing the idea that Gailey will have earned the same fate as Jauron if this team wins 7 in a row? I'm not happy with Gailey lately, but there's something to be said about completely gutting the team when he came in. If Gailey manages to win our final 7 games, he has my FULL backing.
If Gailey leads the Bills to the playoffs i couldn't care less what his record is. The Bills would have overcome a lengthy jinx and ended the season on a high. He would have changed the mentality of a whole franchise going forward.
Right now he is another dud but IF he were to get the Bills to the playoffs he would be a hero considering what had gone before the feat.
The Bills franchise is crying out for a saviour we have been deprived for so long i find it hard to believe anyone would take stats over a playoffs appearance.
Jauron's tenure here didn't begin on a rebuild. The Bills thought they could re-load. They had a bunch of guys in the prime of their careers, Spikes, Fletcher, Schobel, Evans, Kelsay, Triplett, Clements, etc., and several old guys who would absolutely have been gone if it had been a rebuild, including Villarrial, Peerless Price, Daimon Shelton, and Spikes and Fletcher.
They were supposed to be pretty good, and in fact they improved a lot. Then they gave Fairchild his head, and seeing that JP was actually improving and playing decently in a wide-open system, they cleverly shut the system down and tried to make him into a game manager, which is like trying to make an orange into a diamond.
Whereas Gailey was brought in to oversee a full rebuild. And when you rebuild, you're specifically accepting that you'll be awful for two or even three years.
Comparing the two just isn't reasonable.
Don't care what anyone says. I'd rather watch a Gailey coached Bills team over Jauron's Bills any day of the week!

He would make the playoffs though something jauron never sniffed.
I'm going to go with the idea that I simply do not care what jauron did or didn't do. The reason this city and team is in as bad of shape as it is, is because everyone is too busy looking backwards to look forwards. I get that you need to learn from past mistakes, but sometimes you need to start moving forward with your life reguardless.
right look how many points chan has us putting up on O..... all he needs is a better QB and then help all over the defensive side
Don't get hit
When Chan Gailey was here it wasn't like a Jim Hardbough situation where al the pieces were there and they just needed guidance. The entire team was in complete dissaray. It wasn't a simple quick fix is all I'm saying.
Buffalo Bills 2013 Mock Draft
1.Ryan Nassib-QB Syracuse
2.Justin Hunter-WR Tennessee
3.Larry Warford-OG Kentucky
4.Jon Bostic-ILB Florida
5.Sanders Commings-CB Georgia
6.Joseph Fauria-TE UCLA
At this point, would any of us be upset at an 8-8 season? When was the last time any coach had us over 500? Even if we didn't get to the playoffs... Then I'd have real hope for next year.

No one circles the wagons like the Buffalo Bills.
comparing two bad Head coaches is pretty depressing...at least we won division games with Jauron, as bad as he was.
