I haven't written a fanpost in quite some time. Those of you familiar with this blog know nobody was a more ardent supporter of the Jauron era than this guy. 3.5 years after it started, Jauron was ceremoniously surmounted as HC by Perry Fewell, and now it seems everything I read regarding the Bills says "well at least Chan Gailey isn't Dick Jauron." I have to admit, 20/20 vision know has me questioning many things that went on in the Jauron era. Why couldn't he hire a competent OC and find stability? What was his relationship with Trent Edwards? We could on and on, but today is not about the past, it is about the present.
I can't think of a more exciting day in the last 365 than today will be. Think of opening day at the Ralph...can you feel it? Can you see the stands filled with hungry Bills fans, cautiously optimistic that Chan Gailey will lead them to victory? I can see the stands chanting "Spiller-Spiller-Spiller" as he electrifies the Ralph with breath-taking runs and one amazing KR or PR that is taken to the house leaving Dolphins players lying all over the field, like a basket of laundry dumped out all over the field.
This is your team. This is your Stadium Bills fans. Fill it up and cheer like you never have before. Get together with your closest friends and relish opening day. A home opener doesn't come around often, especially one with this much excitement, with a player in Spiller that could be the playmaker this team so desperately needs.
Here's to a year in which the offense is exciting, the defense is attacking, and the coaching is competent. Here's to hope springs eternal, and maybe just maybe, this is the year we find ourselves ending that 10 year playoff drought once and for all. Hope is a beautiful thing.
