12+ years of wide right
Just read this before coming here. I chuckled.
My guess is that Chan may know his job is on the line and getting blown out by the Jets in week 1, losing to the Titans the way they did, giving up 50+ to the Pats, will do that too you
I'll have to go back and watch this again. Didn't notice if Chandler gave effort or not, not that it would have made any difference
Seattle's Marshawn Lynch was running for a touchdown with only Buffalo's Da'Norris Searcy between him and pay dirt. At the goal line, Searcy stepped out of Lynch's way so he would not have to exert himself by attempting a tackle. Later, Earl Thomas intercepted a pass intended for Buffalo's Scott Chandler. Thomas fell to the turf; all Chandler had to do was touch him, and the play was over. Instead, Chandler did nothing, then didn't bother to chase Thomas as he took off for a 57-yard, game-icing touchdown.
Stats of the Week No. 8: On Sunday, the Bills play at Miami; Buffalo is on a 2-for-35 third-down conversion streak versus the Dolphins.
New coach needed... the only guy(s) supporting him to come back is Fitz, maybe Stevie.
Any support from players other than Fitz has to be seen as faux-support and looking good in media. Nobody has any reason to support Chan other than Fitz because any chance of him keeping his job is tied to Chan's...
Hopelessly devastated Bills fan.
To the thrust of the OP thesis, the effort on that play was donwright disgusting. Cant blame it just on Chandler, he simply looks like a doofus (not coached maybe?) to keep playing and dont wait for refs calls.
AS for Searcy, that is a bit unfair, he overran the play and was in no real position to make the play, but tough/physical teams make others players pay for their TDs, our players watch them waltz in the end zone. His effort also was a 1 out of 10 in the end zone.

I love Jarius... but if I'm him, I'm counting the days until I can get out of here!
I think we franchise him, but I don't think he wants to come back!

i saw the Searcy play....He would have been hitting Lynch two yards into the endzone already with Lynch running full speed. There was no reason to make a hit there. just sayin.....

Tannenhill seems to have upped his game the last few weeks and we barely beat them on the thursday night game despite what many felt was the Bills best defensive performance of the year.
But I'm sure we'll hear how prepared we were and how the players love and support Gailey afterwards.

Nobody knows with any certainty what the length of Chan's contract is. When he first signed, I thought I heard 3yrs. If it 3yrs, then this braintrust went into the season with a lame duck coach and this would be almost expected.

When the Bills hired Jauron and Gailey, the team's misfortunes were 100% predictable. At least Marrone has a chance to succeed.
