    "5 in 10"????

    And if these people haven't played, aren't athletic, and don't even own businesses, WHAT THE HELL HAVE THEY DONE WITH THEIR LIVES?!!??!?!?!?!?!

    We never had a QB. We still have to wait on the DBs, who weren't very good when Buddy got here anyway. There are, no doubt, positions on this roster than Buddy did not improve. I never said there was an improvement in every single part of the roster. But I do believe he has improved the overall quality/talent level of the roster.
    And why are you including Byrd's contract in this discussion? It has nothing to do with whether Buddy improved the roster or not, and he hasn't left yet.

    I find this entire post to be extremely ironic.

    The board is very amusing these days
    I look at Nix the same way I look at Gailey or another Bills player, including Fitz
    That is if we can do better, make the change
    I don't play favourites as it has nothing to do with whether the person is likeable or not
    But this opinion that we're a QB and HC away from winning is crazy
    Just because we get a different pivot we are not suddenly going to win
    Same for HC and or GM
    Not that I'm saying we shouldn't clean slate
    But unlike everyone here I have other reasons to clean slate
    It's not just about Fitz, the use of Spiller, etc
    No one here wants to talk about our fumbling problem
    We have huge ST breakdowns
    We still have holes in the trenches in both our lines where most games are won or lost
    We still have a year in and year out horrible defense that gives up way too many points and way too many rushing yards
    Keep all this in mind when you suggest making changes
    Too many of you still think the game is won by scoring the most points
    But those who actually play the game know you also win by giving up the least
    Just saying...

    At first I thought this was supposed to be a poem. I was so disappointed when I saw that there were no rhymes.

    Because it is the GM's job to get these guys signed.
    Just why do you think Byrd is looking elsewhere?
    Probably because he figures we totally suck, and he want's no part of more time under these conditions.

    Excuse me?
    Byrd and Andy are ready to walk. Now we have even more holes to fill.

    yep, Byrd and Levitre are ready to walk, just like SJ did last season, or Kyle Williams the year before

    "If ever a man had it all, it would have to be me"


    "living is easy with eyes closed"

    Bills mock (subject to change many times by May)

    1) trade with Rams again 9 for 13 + 44 Kony Ealy DE
    2) Antonio Richardson OT Tenn.
    2)Troy Niklas TE ND
    3)Jeremiah Attaochu OLB GT
    4) Kenny Ladler DB Vandy
    5)Andrew Jackson MLB W. Kent.
    7)Russell Bodine C,G N. Caro

    Any musicians? If I was, I would make a song, use these as my lyrics, and post it on youtube. Just sayin...

    And Will? It's our fault. It's the fans who have never played, aren't athletic, and don't even have their own business fault. It's unfortunate, but proven.

There are other guys that could probably borderline be starting including Rinehart, Fitzpatrick, Brad Smith, David Nelson, Kelsay, Sheppard, Williams, & Searcy.

    If you keep Nix that does not mean you keep Fitz. In fact, Nix just said "the time is now for the Buffalo Bills to make a move for a long term franchise QB". That is almost an exact quote if not an exact. And saying that because nobody has ever offered him a GM spot is reason for him not to be hired in the 1st place is bogus. You're telling me you would never hire a GM if he wasn't one before? Or a HC if he never was one before? And how do you know he wasn't offered a spot. He was instrumental in building the Chargers back in the day. Eli for Rivers, LT, Merriman, Castillo, and many other of their starters in the last decade were some of his decisions. He has been a decent asst. GM and has been in the Front Office/Scouting departments of many teams.

    Basically what you are saying is that the way you succeed is to fire everybody everytime a little bit of failure rears its head. Texans were horrible under their coach...they stuck with him and now are one of the best teams in the NFL. I know that sometimes the only way is to clean house and start over but that is when you are at rock bottom. Buffalo is not at rock bottom. Cleveland, Miami, Oakland...these are teams that are/were at rock bottom and started over.
    bingo... well said

    we are three players and 1 coach (d-cord) away from being good and people want to jump ship already. The texans are the perfect team to mock.
    Welcome to the NFL, where the only measure of success can be found in the standings
