    Nix was here in 2009--did he scout and reccomend maybin? answer is it doesn't matter. he had no control in SD nor did he here in 2009.

    Yeah, good idea. Fire him for not being 100 percent on each decision he has made. Before Nix took over we talked about "could the Bills be beat by college teams." Let's fire the GM who took that roster and improved it to the point where we say "we shoulda beat New England, and Houston, and Indy, if it weren't for the coach..."

    I've been looking around too, and the reaction isn't very good, esp. with Nix.

    we had close games with Jauron also with the better teams in the league. a lot of could of should of there too. This is what happens when you are a bad organization.

    We could have won or beat NE if we had a QB. Good QB's can make average coaches look great. At what point do you guys get its all about the QB in the NFL? I guess never

    This. Of course he has no choice now but to look for an upgrade. should have known better to begin with.

    AND he said no QB would be better than Fitz. That tells me he can't scout QB's

    When we went 5-2 he wasn't playing great football? I mean he's not one of the elites,which is what your trying to compare him to, but he was playing well enough for us to win games.. He hasn't played like that since we went 5-2..

    No not great period. It is past time to get a guy that can be GREAT and groom him to be great on this roster and NOW. Not putting backups out there and saying they are starters I.e. Fitz

    you don't know how it's going to go. you have no idea if it's a bad decision yet, but as usual, you create these angry little threads, insulting other posters and ripping on wny whenever you can.

    wouldn't it make sense to at least see who the new coach is and what goes down during the draft? it could be more of the same garbage, but it's not going to be instant gratification with this one. no one knows how this will play out.

    Nix is lame duck. What type of effort do you think he will put forward for the draft? He would receive little credit,especially if he doesn't see the process through.

    This is not a good move by Russie. you either keep him at his job with no strings attached or you terminate him.
    Now we have a bitter Buddy, who is in a position to really hurt this franchise at draft time.

    Russ just said Buddy's Scouting acumen is unmached, but the man said Fitz was the guy. That we could win a superbowl with him and no QB in the draft was better and that is pure crap. It shows the man cant scout QB's and it is THE thing we must address and address NOW. But Buddy, who says Fitz is great, is going to pick the QB.

    now honestly, the guy who says and thinks those things is now going to pick our next QB, doesn't that bother you at all? It sure as hell should.

    I am done with this thread. You have homers that just refuse or just can't get it and those of us that see the reality of it. I just hope that all of a sudden Nix figures out how to scout QB's or this franchise is screwed for even more years.

    It is all about the QB and since 1996 we havent had a good one.

    It's your thread! Do you give up on your kids if they're a little naughty? Adoption? You are NOT a born leader, therefore your OPINION means nothing! (AlabamaWCH would be SO proud of MY caps LOCK!)
