    Not a fan but I can take them more than the Rats or Fish.

    While it may not be one of the better NFL jobs there are only 32 of them.
    I really am surprised nobody wants it. It must pay better than most assitant caoches I would think.

    Think Mike Leach and the havoc he would cause if he brought his system to the NFL.
    In 2011 there would be half the NFL clubs following suit.

    Mr. Wilson...why not!
    If T.O. gets nuts it's in the closet for him.
    Seriously great "mad scientist" coach.
    Tenn. Volunteers might consider him

    The batcrap crazy Al Davis can get a coach for the Raiders and the relatively sane Ralph Wilson can't get a coach for the Bills?

    Must be the climate.

    I feel very bad for them.

    Maybe we can send them Bill O'Brien to make them feel better. ;)

    no i don't fell bad for them cause they can't find the one thing you need in todays NFL to win games. a good QB that and they have one foot in buffalo, and one foot in canada. who wants to coach. for a owner. that gives up a home game every year to play in canada. and like the pats they don't pay there players. or spend. the money for big FA

    i think it's the owner and the franchise. the franchise is struggling to the extent that it's taking money to play in Canada. the owner just doesn't seem committed to doing the things necessary to make the Bills a top franchise and to paying he has to pay to win consistently; he won't sell naming rights to "his" stadium...that's the stuff that drives owners like bob kraft bat****.

    I agree, it's the ownership.

    The NFL is like a license to print money and the Bills owner can't do enough to try and gum it up, same problem in St Louis, Detroit, and Oakland.

    yep. we agree. and owners like kraft and laurie and jones pick up the tab, not to mention the taxpayers in most places when they shove up the new stadiums they can't afford.

    Good luck tomorrow. I can't pull for the Jets to win, but I can wish y'all good health and no serious injuries.

    I only feel sorry for the Bills fans, they've suffered thru so much as a whole with regards to Buffalo sports and it doesn't seem to be getting any better for the Bills. Just a matter of time before that franchise is moved to Toronto...

    No. We play them 2x a year and they're in our division. Let the "suck" continue. Besides, their fans aren't exactly all warm and fuzzy for the Pats. Just go to any Bills message board and read the idiocy that resides there.

    I may start a search for a sane and intelligent football message board--then again, I've got a life to live.

    I feel sorry that the patriots don't have a DC or an OC.

    Wilson has deep pockets and short arms. He also doesn't want to relinquish to an extent that a Cowher or Holmgren would want, to sufficiently turn around a franchise, so he is a victim of his desires.

    Wrong on both counts. Like the Pats the Bills spend to the cap.

    Their big problem is that they spend on the wrong players.

    $50 million to Langston Walker.

    $50 million to Derrick Dockery.

    Marcus Stroud too got many millions.

    They have a problem attracting FAs but they do spend big bucks for mediocre talent.
