There's the sure interception off the hands....

And another!

It's like there's a script.

Infuriating.

This game was the Buffalo Bills in a nutshell.

The coaching was TERRIBLE today.

Yeah, coaching is definitely to blame. That and George Wilson's inability to catch footballs.

Lindell hit a 55 yard FG in warm ups. If we would tried that 51 yarder (or whatever it was) instead of punting, and got the PAT, this would have been a different game.

And why did the Bills look like they were trying to run out the clock on their 2nd to last possesion? There was still 6 minutes left in the game.

7 touches for Spiller? Lunacy.

Didn't the Bills need the Chargers to win today?


What the ****.

If Fitzpatrick doesn't throw away the game with that miserable interception, if Wilson doesn't drop those TWO potential interceptions, if McKelvin doesn't blow his coverage on that 4th-down conversion, etc.

Just another day as far as Bills' fans are concerned.

This team is incapable of making a play when it counts. That's what it comes down to.

Mental midgets.

That game is 100% on the offense. Defense did enough to win.

Boos in the stadium for that punt were off the chain.

Ugly.

The second one was a good breakup, Wilson really couldn't have picked that one off. Wilson only got one hand in there...the announcer exaggerated how close it was.

With good reason. You either have to try the FG or go for it there. Of course Gailey will still be here next year.

I want a young, forward-thinking, progressive guy as the next coach here.

If I have to listen to Chan use the "play the percentages" quote one more time to explain why he punted from the 34, I'm going to flip. THE PERCENTAGES SAY TO GO FOR IT! OR AT THE VERY WORST, KICK THE FG. You gain almost nothing by punting, moron.

If I rant on about all the things I'm fed up with in regards to Gailey (like a guy who had fumbled, averaged 1.6 YPC, and got hurt got more touches than the guy on a historic rushing pace) we would be here all damn day.

Unnfortunately the kind of coach you want will never come here until there is a new owner.

16 rushes against 33 pass plays when you led almost the entire game.

The percentages? Um, until a TO was called didn't the genius have Lindell out to kick it?

Nothing will change until they bring in quality football personnel. How old is the Gm? Gailey is a terrible coach who cannot call a good game.

They need to go out and get a young coach in the mold of the Harbaugh brothers, Mike Tomlin you aggressive coaches who know how to get their message across to the team and play with some emotion they will never win.

Get a new GM otherwise they are bound to draft a running back in the first round again just cause that is what they do.

What is really going to suck is they will waste a top pick this year on a quarterback in a very weak draft class and wonder why the guy never panned out.

Again, none of that is happening with Ralph here. He's not going to get an aggressive coach. He's not going to get an aggressive GM. He's not going to bring in anyone that challenges him period, so even if Gailey and Nix are gone at the end of the season, you can expect their successors to be in the same mold.

OLD, OLD and OLD.

Until ols man #1 goes the others won't.

Why do you think the lease is yearly at the stadium? That right there tells you how far Ralph is willing to invest on anything these days

That's BS to go after Buddy Nix for this. Gailey has had the personnel to win at least 2 of the losses we have incurred (I won't count the game today because our line was decimated). Nix has brought in Gilmore, Glenn, Dareus, and a plethora of solid role players in the draft while also making us a team who can spend in the free agency. The way I see it, we are a playoff team with a new 2nd receiver and a decent OLB. This team is a disappointment but at least for once we can directly address the issues rather than try to piece together some semblance of a decent squad in the off-season. All of the crap I'd like to give Fitzpatrick is negated today by the fact that he must have been hit 15 times and that he made good throws on 3rd down for once. Why those balls weren't caught is beyond me. The real issues I have is why Donald Jones refuses to block, why Scott Chandler goes down like a sack of **** everytime a corner back touches him, and why Chan Gailey has no concept of clock management at all.
