    No fix for Nix

    Regular season play 2010 -

    We scored 283 points (17.7/g), 28th of 32 in the NFL.
    We allowed 425 points (26.6/g), 28th in the NFL.
    A total differential of -142 points (-8.9/g), 30th.

    So basically, we lost by an average of ~9 points a game. This translates into a 2 score loss.

    Regular season play 2011 -

    We scored 372 points (23.2/g), 14th of 32 in the NFL.
    We have allowed 434 points (27.1/g), 30th in the NFL.
    A total differential of -62 points (-3.9/g), 22nd in the NFL.

    So basically, we lost by an average of ~4 points a game. This translates into a 1 Touchdown deficit, which is manageable.

    Regular season play to date 2012 -

    We scored 180 points (22.5/g), 18th of 32 in the NFL.
    Allowed 248 points (31.0/g), 31st in the NFL.
    A total differential of -68 points (-8.5/g), 29th.

    So if you extrapolate the rest of this out, we would lose by an average of ~8.5 points a game. This translates into a 2 score loss.

    It's a regression & clearly shows that the on-field results have gotten worse. The Bills spent a fortune ($100 Million for Mario) on new talent in an attempt to improve our team. We could add all the talent we want because Nix & the whole coaching staff wouldn't know how to play them best or prepare them for in-game changes. Our schedule has also gotten easier, as well as most of our opponents talent levels have dropped and yet we still regressed. Add in the fact that we drafted a shiny new sports car (Spiller) & traded away Lynch, who's been quite productive for Seattle to date. Nix spent most of this draft / off-season money on defense & our defense is one of the worst in the NFL, which tells you how this season is going to turn out.

    After reviewing the last few years of regular season play with some improvement and the regression this year, I'd say there's no fix for Nix.

    Hire real coordinators, most especially on defense, and you'd be surprised how quickly this could be fixed. Throw in a MLB and a QB for good measure.
