    "At least one more year"

    I guess that puts an end to that debate.
    http://www.tsn.ca/nfl/story/?id=408683
    Hired by Nix in 2010, Gailey has a 13-26 record in Buffalo. Nix also revealed that Gailey has at least one more year left on his contract, something the team had previously refused to discuss.

    Whether it's a popular opinion or not, I'm glad.

    I want us to stick with him and add a few more pieces.

    In my opinion, he's not our problem.

    "I hope I can put that to rest," Nix said. "It's the age-old thing, and they've done it around here for years. They start over about every three years. What that does is make damn sure that you don't make it. That's what it does."

    I totally agree with him. We've tried that over and over and failed.

    Re: "At least one more year"

    If you listened to his PC, Nix has zero plans to replace Gailey and it's well beyond this next year. He says he has no interest in rebuilding. He doesn't want to start over and possibly lose 6 years (two rebuilds) versus 3.

    I agree with it. Were not far enough away to need a rebuild. Were close. We need a stud LB or two and a young franchise QB. Add in a year of experience for our very young CB's and we will be better. Do we need a new DC and scheme? Probably. But, I'd like a different 4-3 philosophy rather than a total rebuild. Hell, I feel like if we just improved our Nickel through roster changes or scheme changes, we might have won 2 more games.

    Better LB'ing will drastically improve both the run and underneath, flats, and intermediate coverage. A guy like Te'o could have a huge positive impact alone. His penchant for picks and fiery play could be just what we need. Just a few players in a few areas could get us over the hump. I just don't want to blow it up yet. I want another few years.

    In the end I want to see what we can make of what we've got and can have. I wanted this year to be a playoff year but we may be one year away still. No, I don't want perpetual excuses. But, I think were much closer than our record indicates and that we can get there by the end of next season.

    Gailey's record as a HC reminds me of JP Lossman's record as a starting QB.

    Re: "At least one more year"

    Considering the Bills would probably pick some other retread as Head Coach, it's the scenario of go with the devil you know. Plus it looks like they're going after QB in the draft this off-season.

    Re: "At least one more year"

    I think Chan should be gone and we start over with a new qb in the draft with a new gm and a new HC....i know the sediment that nothing will change until RW is gone or sells the team.

    But CHan is 13-26 and Buddy Nix has whiffed alot in his draft and fa...I Know its only 3 years but its been a bad 3 years with two horrible losing streaks the last 2 seasons.

    Hate to say it boys and girls but these guys suck and are out coached and out drafted on a regular basis

    Re: "At least one more year"

    I'm OK with it...IMO we're only three personnel moves away from getting close...a MLB, a QB and a DC that's not a complete dumbass.

    If the Bills don't make the playoffs and Gailey is still here. My group of 8 won't be getting any season tickets next year. That's a total of 12. He's an awful head coach.

    So it looks like the only way this team gets better is if Ralph sells or his age catches up to him.

    No interest in rebuilding?!? Well that explains why we still suck because what we should be and should have been doing since he's been here is rebuilding.

    The time to fire these guys is gonna be in 2 weeks when we give up another 80 points in back to back games, and another 1000 yards in back to back games. That and our record will 3-6 and playoffs will obviously be out of everyone's minds around here and in the organization.

    You let these guys hang around past that and we'll string together some wins and it'll be shoved down all of our collective throats that the team progressed at the end of the year.

    You can dream all you want. I'm ready to drop my season tickets which I have had for 40 years. How you can think that we have made progress under the current regime is beyond me. The record speaks for itslelf.

    Well, if you have crappy seats it won't matter, but if you have seats you like, you may not get seats that good again when you want them.

    Thats OK. Do it.

    If it works, and Nix made the right choice, in a year you'll be back.

    I had seasons for over 20 & dropped them this year (At one point I made every non pre-season home game from mid 1990-November 2007). It would have been a lot tougher to bite the bullet if I wasn't 295 miles away. I'd probably still have them if I lived in WNY. It's got to be tough to be that close & stop going on gameday. On the other hand, it's also got to be tough to go & watch meaningless game after meaningless game. Although many didn't realize it at the time, that home opener against the worst team in then NFL (KC) was as meaningless a win as just about any they've ever had. I just couldn't see the value in attending that game-it was the 1st time I missed the home opener since 1989 and I've been to 27 home openers over the years.
    What happens is that as we get older, we realize we may never see a championship in our lifetime. Look at the Jets & Vikings. The Jets haven't been to the Super Bowl in 43 years, the Vikings haven't made it in 35 years. The Detroit Lions haven't been to any of the 46 Super Bowls. If we end up following that path it could be more than 25 years before the Bills get back, if they ever do as the Buffalo Bills. I'm going to be 59 soon, another 25 years would put me at 84, maybe unable to walk, like my father was at that age, or dead.

    In my opinion, he's not our problem.

    "I hope I can put that to rest," Nix said. "It's the age-old thing, and they've done it around here for years. They start over about every three years. What that does is make damn sure that you don't make it. That's what it does."

    I totally agree with him. We've tried that over and over and failed.
    Damn you must really wear the Bills rose colored glasses or for some reason really love proven failures in the most important spots on an NFL team like GM, HC and QB.

    Gailey is a proven loser. He isn't a young first time coach where it might take some time. The dude is 60 years old and was fired after only two years as a HC in the NFL and nobody else wanted to touch him with a 10ft pole after that. He even failed as a college HC after he had to bolt the NFL for another chance. I guess the Bills are smarter then everyone else though. That is why we have one winning season in the past 13 years.

    When you know you have a dud you replace it. Waiting another year just for the same results only sets you back one more season. We stuck with Jauron for a 4th year too and how did that work out? Jauron was even more successful then Gailey has been as our HC.

    The new choice might not work out but you have to at least try and find an upgrade. Sticking with a proven loser isn't going to get you anywhere. I don't take much stock in the opinion of Buddy Nix anymore either. What has this bum ever done? His drafts in Buffalo have been putrid so far and our team is even worse then it was when he took over. He couldn't even get a GM job until he was 70 years old. That should tell you something there too when nobody else wanted him after all of these decades. Once again I guess the Bills are smarter then everyone else on him too.
