I found this website a couple years ago and I appreciate the great articles this fantastic staff helps to keep me informed on my beloved Bills. Since I live in Alaska I can have a hard time keeping up with not only the Bills but any sport outside of our local hockey teams and the Iditarod. So before I start thanks to you all for keeping this die hard fan updated on my favorite team.
I am just as disappointed as the rest of you fans are for the Bills not making the post season in 14 years. I just wish our fan base could have a little more faith in our current organization. It's time to put these past years behind us and focus on a winning future. This current staff we have in place is trying there best to do that and we have a very good, young GM in place to do it. Whaley is leaving no stone unturned in bringing in future stars to help this happen, whether it's coaching,free agency or the draft. Not only is our team relatively younger but so is our staff and that is how you build a foundation for winning. It doesn't happen over night and yes, we have been waiting a while for this to happen but this negativity we have does not help. Every new thread on any of these Bills sights turns into the same old whining and moaning about what we did or didn't do in the past. If you take the chance and look at this group of quality players on this roster we are pretty close to turning things around.
You know I wanted Byrd to stay as bad as the rest of us did.... it's a shame he didn't want to. He wants to win now and has lost patience in the organization because he has a new coordinator every year and we still struggle to even reach .500. I think he made a big mistake, yes New Orleans will probably be in the playoffs this year. The sad part is you still have to beat teams like Seattle, San Francisco, Green Bay, Carolina, and Philly to get to the big dance. So, instead of Byrd we resign Chandler and Carpenter, bring in Spikes, Williams, Graham, Rivers, and Dixon. Those last three alone will help our special teams immensely and the rest will add great competition. Byrd is only one man and if you think that he alone could have the same impact as these 7 signing will have, your kidding yourself. So get over it, he wanted a lot of money and he did not want to be here. With all our signings we still have enough money to extend the players that choose to be here in the future. I want Dareus, Spiller, Glenn and Gilmore to be on this team in the future. Please stop complaining we didn't go after the biggest names... with the biggest contracts in free agency because I know you want these players here in the future too. If you would of listened to Whaley before FA started, he told you he was not going to spend big. He said he was going to be aggressive and get players he felt that could impact this team. He has done that with 7 players and now he can go into the draft and take the best player available to do the same. So cheer up Bills fans things are about to change for the better..... all you have to do is Billieve.
