Immediate Aftermath

The question now isn't whether Gailey will be fired but when. The defense hasn't just lost to two division rivals but been absolutely dominated. Wilson shelled out $100,000,000 for Mario Williams, who has been a total non-factor in each of those divisional contests--as has Mark Anderson. Recent draft picks Gilmore and Aaron Williams have been abused by Sanchez and Brady. Meanwhile, Gailey's chosen defensive coordinator (Wannstedt) has been no better than his earlier ineffective defensive coordinator. Buffalo has been completely incapable of adjusting to opposing offenses. The defense, when playing anyone other than one of the league's (other) weak sisters, has performed in an abysmal fashion. Meanwhile, the offense turned the ball over with disturbing regularity against both the Jets and Patriots. Fitz, for all of the talk about his improved throwing mechanics and the tutoring of Lee, is terrible for long stretches. Yes, the stats may even out a bit over the long haul but he's been just awful for long periods of time and quite good for short bursts.) The depth remains suspect, with Rinehart immediately surrendering a sack when Urbik went down with an injury. If we could still do polls (why can't we again?) I'd put one up with several different optons. Instead, I'll simply ask: do you think Gailey is fired at the bye, fired around week 12, fired after the end of the season or retained? Note that I'm not asking if you think he should be fired. With Wilson not long for this world he's got no reason to be patient and wait for Gailey to possibly improve at some fuzzy point well down the line. With a few more putrid performances likely (Does anyone who is even passingly literate give Buffalo a chance in San Fran?), I won't be at all surprised to see Gailey gone at the bye.

Just another great fan opinion shared on the pages of BuffaloRumblings.com.
