    Can Reid be blamed for not wanting to run the ball very much with Westbrook always being hurt?

    mccoy is a decent back who could lug it. i don't think not having westbrook at 100% all season is reason enough not to run it. it's just reid's philosophy to chuck it.

    That's probably the best explained, and clearest, explanation for opposition to McNabb that I've ever seen. :high5:

    Chan Gailey to be next Bills Head Coach

    This might be the worst NFL hire I have ever seen. Worse than Lane Kiffin, Art Shell, Dave Campo, Jim Zorn, Dave Wannstedt...this even gives Rich Kotite a run for his money, but I wasn't watching football back then.

    For the life of me I don't understand why NFL teams go so gaga over lousy retreads.

    No -Kotite is in a league of his own. At least Gailey managed (barely) to have
    a winning record in Dallas - Not saying he's good, but he's not historically bad, either.

    And no, I wouldn't have hired him to turn my team around.

    He started Reggie bleedin' Ball for 4 years. He could barely win over half his games in a terrible ACC. He squandered loads of talent in Dallas. He got fired before the season even began in KC.

    I can only say that I am old enough to remember Kotite. He makes Gailey look like Lombardi.

    As I said, I agree that this is a bad hire for Buffalo in terms of getting the team turned around.

    So, I guess Leslie Frazier, Bill Cowher and all the other good candidates didn't want the job then...

    Another way to put it is that when push came to shove, Ralph Wilson couldn't convince himself to cough up the money or control the bigger names would want.
