    Bills assistant defensive coach (name?) will be HC for the next game in Jax against a hot Jaguars team....That is one tall task.

    Jauron was in a no win situation in Buffalo. Ralph Wilson refuses to maximize his revenue opportunities and therefore refuses to pay his top players when they become free agents. He has decided to let key guys like London Fletcher and Nate Clement go over the year rather than forcing the team to pay high signing bonuses. Combine that with the mistakes that he inherited from previous regimes (Tom Donahoe really screwed up a lot of picks and trades like trading a first to get JP Losman or trading for Bledsoe or drafting Willis McGahee).

    nate clement is a over paid and over rated corner he was not worth signing at that price

    bledsoe had one of he's best year's that first year with the bills and mcgahee played pretty good for the bills he just had to big of a mouth on him

    jp was a bad move yes

    but they have hit on a lot of there draft picks over the last few year's

    if they bring in the right coach they can be a 10 win team next year

    mike shanahan

    bill cowher

    jon gruden

    any one of dose guy's would turn the bills around right a way

    The Pats will hire Cowher for their defensive coordinator, Chucky to serve as QB coach/offensive coordinator and the tooth fairy for special teams.

    Like the Pats with Samuel, the Bills could have resigned Clement long before they let him go. Don't forget they paid him one year to be a franchise player and then let him go the next year. Besides, may big name free agents fail on their new team because they are more valuable to the team they left than what they can give to the new team.

    The Bills gave up a first round pick for Bledsoe. He had one good HALF season for the Bills and then fell off. He was gone in three years. It was a really bad trade. Even if they got one great season from Bledsoe and then two mediocre ones, are you saying it was a good trade to give up a first round pick for one Pro Bowl quality season where the Bills went 6-10 and then got nothing in production? If you are giving up a first round pick for a player and he is only going to give you one good season, it better have a Lombardi trophy at the end of it.

    As for McGahee, he gave them three good (one was marginal), not great seasons in four years. He was a headache to boot. For a team that had a lot of holes, it wasn't the right move to make especially when they had a productive RB at the time.

    Yes, if the Bills bring in the right coach, they MIGHT get 10 wins. But that ain't going to happen, so why discuss it. No coach with a big name is going to go to Buffalo any time soon. They might get lucky and get a lesser known coordinator or assistant who turns into a find like Mike Tomlin did.

    Re: Bills fire Jauron

    No.

    But BB has been open in his respect of Dick Jauron. At one point (I think it was last year) he publicly proclaimed that he thought Jauron was doing the best coaching job in the NFL. So I could see BB picking up someone with Jauron's experience as a stabilizing influence among a young coaching staff. I doubt we would officially switch coordinators in mid-season, but I could see bringing him in as an Assistant Head Coach and using his experience.

    The fact is, we have a young and inexperienced coaching staff with O'Brien and Pees. Jauron wasn't a great head coach in either Buffalo or Chicago, but he is a good football mind. BB respects that.

    Not to mention unless they bring a franchise QB to the table with 'em...or inherit one like Tomlin did, I wouldn't be counting on a turnaround any time soon.

    Maybe Ralph will go old school again. Didn't work before but nothing has remotely since Polian left. Maybe he'll take a shot at Polian's kid (although Bill has him lined up as heir apparent in Indy). Got to start at the top again and give full control to the GM and hope he hires the right HC and drafts well.

    Tough part of the equation is Ralph is still making that decision. None of the name coaches will waste their time on a moribund franchise with stadium revenue and potential relocation and pending estate tax issues looming. It'll be retread or who's he...and batten the hatches.

    Maybe fatso's twin since he and ratboy were barking at each other last night (although Lerner may yet pre-empt that by making the switch himself.

    Just like he respected Dom Capers when he needed a job. Didn't have much effect while he was here, though...

    The trade basically ended up being Ty Warren for Drew Bledsoe.
