Buffalo Bills
The end of the 2012 season brought a lot of changes to One Bills Drive. The first major change was the announcement by Chan Gailey that the entire coaching staff had been fired. Shortly after, Bills CEO Russ Brandon held a press conference stating that Bills owner Ralph Wilson had relinquished control of the Bills to him. In that press conference,...

I should of added this to the article (one of my comments to the Bills cheerleaders (Buffalo Rumblings crowd)): "Moves like Marv Levy as GM, T.O. and the MW signing were equivalent as putting a band aid on a gushing wound. While I loved Levy as a HC, he was a horrible GM, but I bought the Levy kool-aid thinking he was making the right moves to make the Bills into a long-term winner. What happen instead, he hired a terrible HC that no one in Buffalo wanted [Jauron], majority of his draft picks his draft picks were busts, and let go of key LB’s like Fletcher & Spikes. Next, T.O. was suppose to take the pressure off of Evans and spark the offense. What happened instead, Evans had the worst stats of his career to that point, Jauron got fired mid-season, and the Bills finished with a worse record than the year before (from 7-9 to 6-10). Next, bringing in Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, along with Dareus & KW, with Wannstedt using the front 4 to bring all the pressure on the opposing QB’s would solve all of the Bills defenses problems and make them a Top 10 defense…and how did that turn? Instead of bringing in a “big name,” the Bills should have built the team the right way, by getting the right pieces in place. How about drafting a franchise QB in the first round, instead of how many RB’s and CB’s (that the Bills either traded or cut)…now that is trying to win football games. Last year was the year to draft a QB, not this year. If the Bills didn’t want to draft a QB, they should have attempted to go after Peyton Manning, but they didn’t even throw their hat into to the mix (not saying the Bills would have signed Manning, but they didn’t even try to go after him). Unless you’re the 1985 Bears or 2000 Ravens, you’re not going to win the Superbowl, let alone make the playoffs unless you have competent play at the QB position."

Best part of the Super Bowl was watching Donte Shitner be 1/2 a step too slow on every play. Hard hits are great but ball skills would be even better. F off Whitner

Moves like bringing in Marv as GM is what made me quit drinking the 'Bills Kool-Aid'. That's when I realized the Bills were a joke and I needed to quit taking them so seriously and either give up my allegiance or find a new attitude in following them. It mostly worked, but wasn't until I quit dropping big bucks on Sunday Ticket that I fully got over their idiotic way and boring-ass play.

On the bright side, it at least appears they're trying again. May not work, but their decisions have been less laughable of late. But they sill have Bubba who's hell bent on drafting a QB at any cost so they might still have a Bills-like move in 'em.
