    Again, nothing changes until there is new ownership. Today is lipstick on a pig, imo.

    I love the media

    It's the same essential power structure. Nothing will change. A true top-flight talent of a coach will still have to deal with several levels of authority. So, forget a Cowher/Gruden/Shanny type. They won't come.

    Expect more of the same, with some other retread coach and the same stupid personell moves.

    Yep, exactly, it was another shell game. And I have a bad feeling we'll be missing Gailey, cause with all these other teams looking to fill HC vacancies, and Russ Brandon still wielding power when I've heard for years that he was a big reason no one wanted to come here, I fully expect a worse hire than Gailey.

    Yep. Brandon has made Ralph good money with a crappy product. He has given him the keys to make him more money. That does not mean the product will improve.

    Maybe they were expecting to start over as an expansion team???

    Even worse Brandon just said in his interview they make the football decisions together as a team. So 2 of the 3 people who decided Fitz was only QB needed and was never even considered being benched on a team that won 4, 6 and 6 games. I have a lot of faith in the folks sitting in those meetings signing off on that plan.

    I don't understand your comment. Jerry Jones is president and CEO of the Cowboys. Does he or does he not have any influence?

    So your saying........

    Brandon was part of the GM by committee experiment a few years ago. We know how that went. Picks like maybin.
    This guy has been involved with the Bills organization in some capacity for 15 years and we haven't made the playoffs for 13 years. Spring cleaning, but only doing one room.

    Well. I think Ralph is a lot like Bruce Ismay ifyou ask me' he promises the world and all but when it came time to deliver--all heck broke loose with total panic and chaos with no solution in sight and Ismay gets away with the indirect murders of thousands of customers and he survives to boot.

    Ralph has sunken this ship a long time ago and he has fooled enough fans to think that we have a shot each and every year. He should sunk on the Titanic!
    The best man to ever lead this franchise, especially when adversity was not common in the league at the time. Ralph, firing this guy was the biggest mistake of your life and you will go down in history with too many fans knowing that! Kudos Mr. Bill Polian, at least you won your championship; I'm happy for you!

    Mom and Pop organizations don't work in sports

    comfort is taken in the Twins winning 2 World Series VERY shortly after the last Mom and Pop ownership in MLB finally got rid of the team
