At the start of every month, we're going to poll the readers of Buffalo Rumblings on their state of mind regarding the chief decision-makers of the Buffalo Bills. This is your poll to state your pleasure, or lack thereof, with head coach Chan Gailey. Here are some stories Gailey has been heavily involved with over the last month.
- Acknowledged, then downplayed, reports that quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick played more than half of the 2011 season with cracked ribs.
- Talked up third-year running back C.J. Spiller, though he did nothing to alleviate concerns that the team doesn't view the former No. 9 overall pick as an every-down back.
- Confirmed that the plan for Shawne Merriman in the 4-3 defense is to play him as a pass-rushing defensive end.
- Told reporters at the 2012 NFL Combine that the team is working to re-sign veteran linebacker Kirk Morrison, who would then compete to start at SAM linebacker.
