"'There's a lot of uncertainty and I don't think anybody knows what's going to happen,' said Kelsay. 'I think everybody is playing for their jobs so you have to ... build your rsum.'

Team in Transition

Jim Harbuagh, Ron Rivera, Jim Haslett, Jim Fassel, Cam Cameron, Perry Fewell, Charlie Weis, Chris Peterson, and Brian Schottenheimer are on the list of "who new General Manager Buddy Nix has worked with in the past, logical suspects and men who I hear are under consideration."

Nix has chance to restore some of Bills' lost luster : Larry Felser : The Buffalo News
"The promotion of Buddy Nix from national scout to general manager provides not only a glimpse of sunshine but could be a way for Wilson to make the fans forgive the embarrassments of the '00s while some of the luster of the past is restored. Nix's fingerprints are not on the mistakes of the gloom period."

Buddy Ball? They Better Hope it Works -
"I have nothing against Buddy Nix. Based on his resume, he has forgotten more about football than I will ever know. I hope for the sake of Bills fans, Buddy turns out to be the best thing that has happened to the team’s front office since Ralph handed things over to Bill Polian. But I have my doubts."
