    Yes, please pass on a guy who has made it to the playoffs multiple times. We need to get a guy who wins the super bowl every year. *Sarcasm off*

    Bills fans are hilarious, people around here act like we've been doing great, getting to the playoffs every year. Lovie has won for a long time in a good division. He's had top 5 defenses **** near every year he's been a coach. He went to the Super Bowl with REX GROSSMAN. He certainly a better choice than the Whis and Norton.

    Ahh, the old "well he's better than what we have". That's such a loser mentality.

    No matter how bad the organization is...the goal should always be to build towards a long-term Superbowl contender. Not to become mediocre.

    And who's fault is it that their starter was Rex Grossman? Or that he brought in horrible offensive coordinators over and over and over again? I always love this logic that nothing that happens on the other side of the ball is his fault. Just like when people would defend Chan and say "well we just need to get him a great defensive coordinator". If Lovie is that clueless about offense, which he's proven he is. he shouldn't be a head coach. He's a defensive coordinator.

    After Lovie... lets give Zimmer a look... Lovie has tough competition especially since Horton and Whiz all have ties to Whaley.

    Russ was on the John Murphy show last night and he reiterated the same thing he said at the press conference:

    They intend to do an "exhaustive" search and are not in for the quick answer.

    I hope they continue with that approach.

    As time goes on I'm not so sure I have a favorite. I would not have been satisfied had they stopped with Whisenhunt and offered him the job, but it doesn't appear they are doing that.

    One thing I do want them to do is follow through and give Hue Jackson an interview.

    I'm glad their at least doing their due diligence in this search instead of just going out and hiring first guy the interview. They've already done two interviews that we know of and have 3-5 at least rumored for this weekend. I'm totally fine with that. Interview everyone, go back to Buffalo and sit down and figure out which coach is the best fit and offer him the job. That simple.

    5. CB Ross Cockrell, 6'0 191 Duke

    Lovie kind of reminds me of Dick Jauron in the sense of him seeming like too passive of a coach. We need a coach who will show emotion on the sidelines.

    Seriously though i wouldn't be mad with Smith because hes good. However i think its time we take a risk on someone who could be great.

    This right here. People if Lovie was to come to Bffalo I'm sure they'll have a plan for whom will be the OC.

    This is what's important for me. We don't know how all of this will turn out, but at least there seems to be an extensive search as promised.

    In lots of ways I would much rather have Lovie Smith and having him make Gil Byrd father of J. Bryd be the DC in order to keep #31 from leaving and as an ADDED bonus getting Norv Turner to run the offensive side of the ball and also having him bring back STC Bobby April. Although I'm not too sure Bobby is completely over being snubbed by Ralph Wilson when Tricky Dick was "Relieved of his Head Coaching Duties" of the Buffalo Bills.

    One fact people are over looking is his winning % against winning teams. Which is an amazing .333%

    Just what a difference 3 years makes. Man the last coaching search was dreadful, we couldn't interview the likes of Brian Schotty or Russ Grimm. Now we have guys lined up, Im thrilled at the fact that if we don't land our top dog in Chip Kelly that we will get a Lovie Smith, Ray Horton, Mike McCoy, heck, even Whiz is a superior candidate to Gailey.

    By no means am I the biggest supporter of Lovie for HC on these boards, but in defense of his offensive issues, the real issue over the years has been personnel.

    In his pre-Cutler years, his leading passers were Orton twice, Rex Grossman, Brian Griese, and Chad Hutchinson. It's hard to get even a serviceable offense going out of that group, compounded by lack of a great RB (Thomas Jones 3 years, one year of Benson, and Forte's rookie year), and no receiving threat to speak of (David Terrell, Muhsin Muhammad 2 years, Bernard Berrian, and Devin Freaking Hester). Despite this, his offenses steadily improved: in terms of points/game, they went 32nd, 26th, 2nd, 18th, 14th in those years. Not to mention, twice in the playoffs in five years, including a Super Bowl appearance.

    After acquiring Cutler in 2009, the Bears offense has since gone (in terms of points/game): 19th, 21st, 17th, 16th. Respectable numbers, despite the fact that until this season, they still had no WR, and the fact that they have consistently had one of the worst offensive lines in the league - this is a team that has had no depth at multiple offensive positions, including OL and WR. I don't know if that is on Lovie or their GM, but it doesn't matter here, as we have a GM who would have authority over personnel decisions, be it Nix or Whaley or someone else down the road.

    It's also worth pointing out that yes, having a great defense will help in terms of points/game scored on offense, but a counter-argument to that would be that Lovie would also make our defense better, which should help our offense in scoring.

    why do we need a smokescreen...the Bills have been full of smokescreens and have been trying to outsmart people for years....and for what? Find the guy you want, make a good offer, and lets get this thing turned around.
