Think his seat is heating up. RT @ryanferreira2: @Adam_Schefter for all Bills fans, do you think Jauron will or should be fired this season?

Twitter / 13 WHAM Rochester's Chuck Wade
Peter King writes that Greg Williams wanted to draft Drew Brees when he was coaching the Bills. Think he'd still be here if Brees was a Bill

Twitter / Newsday's Bob Glauber
Agree. @GTorlone 5 wors coaching jobst: Mangini (0-4), Zorn (2-2), Jauron (1-3), Fox (0-3), Fisher (0-4), hard to say Fisher, but it's true.

Twitter / Rochester D&C's Sal Maiorana
Word is that Dick Jauron expressed confidence in QB Trent Edwards moving forward. So he's the one!

Twitter / Rochester' D&C's Sal Maiorana
Dick Jauron also said he fully recognizes his job is on the line, though he said he has felt that way in every game he has played or coached

Twitter / ESPN's Adam Schefter
If it doesn't turn around, no later than this offseason. RT @Deltroy: @Adam_Schefter Any time table when you think Jauron is out of Buffalo?

headed to the plane down to NYC for the night. Shawn Nelson's B-day. Lets GO!

I'd add Dick Jauron in there, too. RT @antdavid39: @caplannfl whose the clock ticking louder for Tom Cable or Jim Zorn?

Twitter /'s Adam Caplan
Too early. RT @Buffalo_Tribute: @caplannfl Do you think Dick could be fired this week? He was on the hot seat middle of last season

They just made it seem like I was out of my mind with anger. I was just shocked with what I was seeing! Some of what I tweeted was banter.

Trent doesn't try that throw in video games. Don't like the Vikings, but love No. 4.

Twitter / Rochester D&C's Sal Maiorana
So tell me why Lee Evans and Terrell Owens can't get open like that. And maybe Favre can teach Trent Edwards the art of the pump fake

Twitter / Rochester D&C's Sal Maiorana
Is it just me or do these teams look like they play in a different league than the Bills?

Twitter / Thurman Thomas
I love you all, thank you.Best fans in the world and Jim and I will get this team turned around. Good night and God Bless
