At mid season I felt the defense was most responsible for the 3-6 record at the time. Now the order has changed for me. 1. Coach gailey - has been a complete failure this year. I had thought of him as an average coach in need of more talent. I as wrong as he has really hurt the team this year costing us several wins. Gailey is lacking leadership, the ability to make quick adjustments, is too conservative amongst many other shortcomings. He had no real history of success before coming to the bills and we now know why. 2. Defense. I mistakenly thought this was a top 5 defense this year and was wrong. I believed the D would carry this team to 10 wins but they generally came up small when needed most. I blame this on vanilla coaching as well as lack of talent at lb and corner. Hopefully Bradham develops and Gilmore continues to progress. Wilson was also a big disappointment as I thought he and Byrd would make a nice combo. Instead it was a 1 man show at safety. Dave W. was not what I expected. Expectations were high and they did not come close to achieving them. 3. Fitz - I thought he could be a game manager like Alex Smith. They tried to make him a game manager but that also took away his gunslinger mentality and resulted in far too plays from our Qb. He is 3 on the list because I expected him to be avg. and he was only slightly below that. Fitz proved he could compete with the bottom 12 Qbs but not any of the elites or rising stars. The cupboard is empty at this position due to their refusal to draft a Qb over the years. They will get one this year (hopefully Glennon) and I would like to see another drafted (ie. wash.) would have been nice to see Dalton or Collin K. in a Bills uniform this year. Maybe the biggest miss was Wilson. I loved everything about this kid but his height. I could not get passed that and thought he would make an excellent backup in the 5,6 or 7th round. Like the bills I could not have been more wrong. He could have been a game h
Changer here. I think changes are coming and then there will be Hope for 2013. The life of a Bills fan, hope for next season.
