    Default Guys, I feel kinda bad

    Buffalo Bills

    FREE iPad Download

    I was on the fire Gailey train before the season started simply because of his loyalty to Fitzridiculouslyterrible but now I actually feel kinda bad after seeing his statement. He obviously tried hard to get things done and he just didn't have what it took in the guy he hitched his football wagon to. The fact that he said we're the only team that he'd root for after being fired really showed that he wanted to do well for us the fans as well as himself. His personality was a good changeup to the cold repeated blank face of the Jauron era so I enjoyed watching his interviews and conferences alot more than the previoius guy that was in here. I hope he gets an opportunity to coach somewhere with a QB that will allow him to use his entire playbook. Goodbye and good luck Gailey.

    16-32.

    We can't afford to be irrelevant any longer.

    Its Nix who shouldn't have a job for hiring him in the first place.

    And its Russ and Ralph's fault for not completing a real GM search when they had a chance.

    it hurts to get fired.... I feel for the guy as a person

    But it had to be done... Gailey has fired players and assistants in the past. It's how the business works.
    Find a way to get Clowney or Mack!

    The fact that it took you until now to realize that he tried his best is more a knock on you than him.

    What about the ppl he has cut? Cry me a river
    Buffalo, where the boot lickers are well taken care of.
    Franchise needs a change of attitude. Welcome EJ now lead the charge. Fitz is gone and the worst starting DE I've seen stay on the field after continually doing nothing is gone Now let's move forward B-Lo.

    It's a business - unfortunately tough decisions have to be made. Wish him the best!

    I just fail to see how any QB could have overcome a defense that threatened to give up the most points in NFL history. It would have taken a near record breaking offense to make this team a contender. You just can't consistently win in the NFL when you can't stop opposing offenses. Sure, Fitz made his share of mistakes, but he wound up with 24 TD's to 16 INT's, a better mark than many QB's. Furthermore, I see many top prospects in college struggling against college defenses. To think any of those guys are going to single-handedly turn this thing around is wishful thinking.

    So you wish he hadn't been fired just because of his last statement?

    Turnovers in the 4th quarter when you have a chance to win is a good way to lose games. Once again Fitz gets more credit than he deserves by people pointing out the numbers instead of pointing out the horrible flow or lack thereof the offense had the entire season. I really hope and pray that we don't go through 3 coaches who put their faith in Fitzpatrick.

    Indeed, and a cruel business at times. I am pretty darn sad today because no one wanted this guy to succeed in Buffalo more than I did. I will miss his honesty, his loyalty, and his sense of humor. I will not miss his coaching (unfortunately). I wish him all the best, and hope he takes some time off because he has been looking like he really needs it.

    God bless you, Chan!

    How you got this from my OP I don't know. I said I felt bad, not I wish we didn't fire him.

    He stuck around after Jauron got canned. Why would he leave now, especially since he's got such a good thing going here?
    I am not a number, I am a free robot.

    Draft these guys; trade down in 1st if possible:
    1-Kony Ealy-DE-Missouri
    2-Morgan Moses-OT-Virginia
    2-Troy Niklas-TE-Notre Dame
    3-Zach Mettenberger-QB-LSU
    4-Chris Davis-CB-Auburn
    5-Khairi Fortt-OLB-California
    7-Donald Hawkins-OL-Texas
