So you're mad they ran CJ 24 times?

Isn't that what we complained about all season?

LOL. Did you really expect anything less? They do this thing every year...

I was so confident I picked them in Streak For The Cash while everyone else was dumb enough to pick the Falcons!

F'in Bills. More years of mediocrity. Love how the Bills can only beat the Jets when they should lose.

The tie breaker for draft order is SOS. The bills have the weakest SOS for any 6-10 team. So really they dropped 2 spots by winning.

And now the wait begins to see how many heads will roll, if any!

I say Chan is gone for sure, possibly Buddy as well.

And then the next generation of mediocrity will be brought in, and the cycle will repeat in 2 or 3 years.

LOL.

What a **** organization!

Yes they are. Common opponents is the next tiebreaker after division records, and the Bills went 4-10 against the same set of teams the Jets went 6-8 against.

A lot depends on Ralph's death or non death.

If Buddy Nix and Gailey get the boot than I expect the Bills will be gunning for one of the top available coaches.

Not if old man Ebeneezer Wilson is running the show. Which there in lies a problem for me, if nobody wants to come coach for this guy...why the hell is he in the hall? It surely has nothing to do with the Bills because 17 of 52 seasons with playoffs is horrendous. The 90s were sort of a fluke. Good GM made a lot of things happen via draft and trade. Marv wasnt even a hot commodity.

BREAKING NEWS:

Peter King says on Sunday Night Football that tomorrow Chan will be fired.

No word on Buddy Nix, which implies he will be retained, unless that decision is still up in the air.

Someone like King wouldn't say this on national TV unless he had a rock solid source and knew what was going on, so I consider this more than rumor.

I'll be disappointed if Nix remains.

Was this what Thurman was tweeting about last week!?

Looks like we are locked in at the 8th pick.

Here is my top 8 wish list and would be ecstatic with any of these 8.I don't even care that the DL is our biggest strength, you take the BPA no matter what and would love a Bjoern Werner or Damontre Moore.This list is in no particular order.

Manti Te'o
Geno Smith
Jarvis Jones
Damontre Moore
Bjoern Werner
Star Lotulelei
Luke Joeckel
Barkevious Mingo

Hearing a lot of ownership rumors and from different people too... Something big may be brewing.

If Nix gets the boot, A.J. Smith would be interesting if San Diego lets him go as expected.

Hearing a lot of these rumors too...but no reputable source. Lots of hinting at Kelly/Thomas buying the Bills from Ralph...but I'll believe it when I see it from someone reputable.

They don't have the cash. There has to be a mainstream buyer allowing them a share or something. Unless senial Ralph is being conned.

Where are the sources? I read something on another board about George Gillete(the guy the Pats stadium is named after)

No. He said "a few" weeks.

As for the shakeup I feel like the coach and GM should be a pair, if the coach gets canned(who the GM somewhat selected) why does the GM get a pass often)

Why doesn't Pegula buy them? It's not like his investment is going to lose money. NFL teams seemingly have license to print money, and franchise values are constantly increasing, even if Buffalo's curve isn't as steep as other franchises.

Found this:

https://twitter.com/Michael_Necci/st...185922/photo/1

and this nugget in a post elsewhere:

Quote:
"Along with a pre-recorded statement that will be edited and contain critical information...... so much so that the video team is on strict orders to be on call at the facility Sunday/Monday with a complete gag order. The editing will be done in another room as it comes in live so that Ralph make adjust anything the behind the scenes team deems necessary as it relates to how it will look and sound. NO PRESS WILL BE WITNESS to this and its only going to be Ralph's handler and necessary people. This is not a happy holidays greeting either people, so dont even say that. Ralph has never done one anyways. Also, there is a private salon coming in to help groom Ralph and its been now relayed to him that the months of this season have been spent rehabbing, eating and trying to present a solid, healthy Ralph Wilson for the camera, but this is all for this recording. Exactly why he is in town right now and everyone said he looks great, like Eric Wood on Twitter."
A video???
