Let’s hear it, regime defenders:
- Let’s hear your rationale for keeping a head coach who has lead the Bills to three consecutive losing seasons. Some were trying to sell the idea that improvement each year was reason enough to keep a loser as head coach. 4-12 to 6-10 to….at best 7-9 and more likely 5-11. After starting 3-4 the Bills have dropped 6 of the last 8 games. In several, as in this week’s debacle, Buffalo has been thoroughly outcoached and the team has looked completely unprepared, undisciplined, and at times poorly motivated.
- Let’s hear your rationale for keeping a defensive coordinator whose defenses have given up more yards in individual games than almost any other teams in history—never mind the investment in terms of draft picks on the defensive side of the ball. As it stands at this moment, the Seahawks have over 300 yards of offense IN THE FIRST HALF. Yes, the Bills have had injuries such as Mario’s ailing wrist. So what? Every team has injuries; most don’t utterly collapse.
- Let’s hear your rationale for keeping a general manager who can’t quite decide what defensive scheme to adopt. He is only now coming around to recognizing that the QB he anointed as the near term future of the Bills isn’t anywhere good enough to get the Bills out of the league basement.
- Let’s hear your defense of a quarterback who has had a decent line to play behind for much of the year. Why is it that he can’t complete screen passes with any degree of regularity? Why should the fans settle for a guy whose long ball resembles some kind of wounded water fowl? Do rookie QBs stare down receivers any more often than Fitz? Would a rookie do any worse than a 19-32 record?
The thrashing the Bills are currently enduring in Toronto isn’t a surprise. We all EXPECT the Gailey led Bills to stink up the joint at least several times per year. Buffalo doesn’t disappoint at least in that regard, getting shellacked in at least a quarter of this season’s games.
