Rating Buffalo's 2012 Season

My personal Ratings List of the Roster including Nix and Gailey

I’m confident that people will disagree with me somewhere down the line if not a lot but I am interested to see others opinions on it. I have watched every game including the pre-season so that being said here we go…

Member- 2012 Rating – Potential for the Future (Peak) – At Worst (lowest Peak)
Buddy Nix= A … A … B = He did bring in M. Williams, resigned good players and had a good draft
Chan Gailey= D … B … D = I rate him a B in potential because I still believe in him with a quality QB

QB Fitz= C+ … B- …D- = Streaky at best but not all of it falls on him, hes around the 19th QB in the league
RB Jackson= B-…B+…C = Hard to rate him since he has been injured but still can be a game changer
RB Spiller= A+…A+…B = Nuf said
WR Johnson= B+…A…C+ = I think he would be an easy A in the slot, hopefully we will find out
WR Jones= C+…B-…C- = A good solid backup who can make a splash from time to time
WR Graham= C-…B+…D+ = Excellent speed, questionable hands at times, with a good QB?
WR Martin= C-…B+…D+ = He gets a B+ for special teams
TE Chandler= B…B+…C = Good quality TE, not great but one of the best Buffalo has had in 20 years
C Wood= B+…A-…B- = I think the guy can be Pro Bowl if he can stay healthy and if the Bills start winning
G Levitre= A…A…B = Only downside is his size but he makes up for that with skill, hes All Pro
G Urbik= B…B…C+ = Just a good solid starter, not flashy
T Glenn= B+…A+…B- = He shows signs of being an All Pro, time will tell
T Harriston= B-…B+…C+ = Solid starter at RT
DE M. Williams= A-…A+…B- = Say what you want, I’m extremely excited hes a Bill
DE Moore= B…B+…C = A pleasant surprise
DL K Williams= B+…A…B = The guys motor never stops and is a game changer at times
DL Dareus= B-…A+…C+ = If he wants to he can be an All Pro, hard year for him, next year bounce back
DL Carrington= B-…B…C+ = Pleasant surprise, best at blocking kicks in the business?
DL Sp Johnson= C+…B-…C = Solid backup who can make a play or 2 when called upon
DE Merriman= C+…B-…C= I believe he can still contribute as a backup next year
LB Bradham= B…A…C+ = Potential solid LB, might have found an answer to a needy LB core
LB Barnett= B…B…B- = Solid LB but age is becoming an issue sadly
LB Sheppard= C+…B…C- = I do not believe he is the answer to the MLB
CB Gilmore = B+…A+…B = I really believe Nix picked a shut down CB, he will be a star for years to come
CB A. Williams = C+…B…C- = Can hang with most WR but better learn how to play the ball better
CB Leo as Special teams = A-…A…B= As a CB he cant play the ball well but hes a stud as a returner
S Wilson=B-…B…C- = Age is an issue, what happened to his ball skills?
S Searcy= B…A-…C+ = This guy can and is starting to be a solid NFL Safety
S Byrd =A-…A+…B+ = Best safety in the AFC
P Powell= B…A-…D = Strong leg, excellent at times, scratch your head moments in other times
K Lindell= A-…A…B+ = One of the most accurate of all time, what happened last Jets game?

Defense Overall D-…A…D- =I am shocked at how badly they underperformed,someone has to take blame
Offense Overall C…B…D= Changes have to be made somewhere

So there you have it, my personal grades. Maybe now I can sleep with it not on the back of my mind keeping me up at night. I think Nix should stay, Gailey I go back and forth on, mostly because I wonder what he can do with someone who is accurate on the deep ball which would open up tons of room for options.
I’m not against cleaning house because I just want my team to win but if they both come back I’m ok with that for one more year as long as they get a new QB. I like Fitz, probably would want to talk with him more then anyone else on the team but I’ve had enough losing and change has to happen somewhere
