Hello 1,929 NYC Bills fans!
Cowher, Shanahan, Gruden, Dungy, Haslett are some of the coaching names being tossed around for the Bills in 2010. Get your attention?
For anybody that hasn’t heard, Coach Dick Jauron has been fired (finally) and Perry Fewell has taken over as Interim Head Coach. Sorry Ralph, what did you see the last couple games that you didn’t see last year? Well, what’s done is done. It was reported this morning that Jauron actually had a choice, quit or be canned at season’s end. Thanks Dick, for sparing us another two months of this embarrassment.
Great news is there are several reports that Ralph Wilson is set to spend money (gasp) on a big name coach and/or GM for the team. Wilson himself said in an interview this week that he is going to completely overhaul the Front Office, no job is safe. You mean we finally realized the remainder of Tom Donahoe’s front office staff have given us a playoff drought of 10 years, and that Russ Brandon is a salesman, not a GM? Sorry, you can tell I have quite a bit of bitterness in me. However if Ralph is ready to right the ship, then I’m fired up for this long overdue rebuilding process. We might not be able to lure a top coach here, but a solid GM and coach would be better than what we’ve experienced for the last decade. I still can’t believe that Bill Polian was fired.
Oh yes, Trent Edwards has been benched and the Bills brought in another young QB from Green Bay to backup Fitzpatrick who is now starting. Looks like the Edwards experiment has ended.
Alas, we must survive the remainder of this season, but now its a hell of a lot more tolerable with light at the end of the tunnel. The Bills travel to Florida to take on the Jaguars this Sunday at 1pm. Specials start at noon and run through the end of the game. It won’t be televised locally so head down to McFadden’s and Calico’s to catch it, and chat with friends about what is going to be an awesome off-season.
