Character, talent and ruthlessness post-Ralph




Mr, Wilson always seemed to value character and sportsmanship more than most other owners. When I dated an Eagles fan, she and her family would mercilously taunt me about the intellect and good-naturedness of many Bills (Levy, Fitz, Fred, George W., etc.) and how the rest of the league (including those fellows in the greater Boston area) is ruthless about football personnel decisions.

Now that Mr. Wilson is no longer actually in charge, will this change? For one thing, there is the simple fact that he isn't in charge day to day, which makes one think things will change, but on the other hand, everyone in the executive suites was hired under Wilson. Do they actually know how to operate a ruthless, businesslike football club? (And yes, I know Whaley cut his teeth in Pittsburgh, but he was still hired under Wilson.)

The release of Fitzpatrick and Wilson got me thinking about this. Take Landry, for instance. He is a very good safety. There is evidence that he is a dirty player. Does column A outweigh column B? Would fans object to him? What about for the front office guys who were hired under Wilson? Just something to keep in mind as we go forward in the post-Ralph era.

Also keep in mind that was just one small example. This Fanpost is mainly a thought experiment about the attitude of the franchise after Ralph Wilson has relinquished control.

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